    Recently inherited a Motorola Droid from my best friends brother. The phone won't power on, yet when plugged into a wall charger the white light goes off, and when hooked up to the computer with USB, green light flashes. Does anyone have any ideas for me to bring it back to life? I would appreciate the help.

    - Your noob, Tyrone

    :welcome: to the forum Tyrone. With the phone plugged into the wall charger, try pulling the battery and see if it turns on.

    I appreciate it! And no luck doing that, nothing happened.

    Ok, leaving the battery out, un-plug the charger then plug it back in. (This only works on the wall charger) I can power up my phone this way without the power button. If it doesnt work, the phone may have issues.

    Sigh :( . Still nothing. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question, though.
