    My phone all of a sudden went black (screen on but just black). I did several battery pulls and restarted. All I see is a black screen, no Motorola sign and no Red Eye present. Can anybody help me please?

    Have rooted before currently Not rooted. Running 2.1 update-1, installed the update manually. Have had no problems lately just received an email notification saw the blinking light but my screen would not turn on (would just be black, on but black as previously stated) battery life was around half full at the time. Been charging the phone but now the light is no longer on when charging, which either means the battery is charged fully or not charging but since the phone does turn on I assume it is full charge.

    well have u tried loading up the bootloader screen by holding up on the dpad on the hardware keypad during boot if u can do this then it is possible to reflash 2.1 or 2.0.1 onto your droid without going to verizon but if u cannot since you were not rooted verizon should replace it for u good luck

    I got here late, but was going to recomend a battery pull for a few seconds or so. Seems like that might have been the solution as I had the same problem once and that's what I did to fix it.

    I had the same problem. It started about 5 days ago and got progressively worse. Battery pulls and leaving battery out for hours wouldn't fix it. Verizon replaced it today for me under warranty. They said its the 2nd one they've seen with this problem. Sucks the replacement is a remanufactured droid but so far its working well
