    So I have an OG droid and it will not turn on unless I plug it in on the charger. Once I plug it in it is still unresponsive, then it will turn on to the boot logo. From there I can unplug it, pull the battery and it will turn on and work. It will power off at some point and start the whole process again. I am rooted stock FRG83G. Anyone have any ideas why this is happenening?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you both have some battery issues.

    Are you able to get into recovery?

    Well I got mine to work, the battery was okay I pulled the battery and used it in my everyday droid. (This one was my tinker with droid). I did some more research and found out there are some issues with contacts not getting a charge from the battery? So I tore the phone apart cleaned everything ( had dust behind screen) and now it works again, but for how long who knows?? Thanks for the help though..seems I must have stumped everyone with my problem.
