    Hey guys, joined as a last resort.

    Lately, I've been having problems with my Droid. I'll provide some background information before going further.
    Model: Droid
    Android version: 2.2.2
    Baseband version: C_01.43.01P
    Kernel version: 2.6.32.9-g68eeef5 android-build@apa26 #1
    Build number FRG83G

    The phone is rooted. I uninstalled most third-party applications to test if applications were the problem. None of them were. (I only have about eight foreign applications.) The only one I suspect is SetCPU.

    Now, here are the problems.
    1. This is the most annoying thing. Screen does not turn on when I want it to turn on via the lock button. I have to turn it on and off two times, and on the third time, it will finally turn on. That is, on, off, on, off, on. I know the difference between on and off because the screen does get lit, but it remains black. Likewise, when I turn on the phone, none of the graphics show. Not that it doesn't turn on; the phone will boot and you can see the back-light is on. Thus, I can not get to the boot menu either. This is especially annoying during calls. Since the proximity sensor turns the screen off, I would have to lock it and unlock it multiple times to see the screen again during the call. (i.e. automated phone, checking other information, etc.)
    2. There is an update available (FRK76). I know doing the update will probably unroot my phone. However, I would think doing this might solve my problem. I cannot update it! One, the screen is off so I can't see anything. Two, when I did get around the screen by luck and selected update.zip, it said the file cannot be founded!
    3. Sometimes, I don't get calls. I've had people call me, but I don't get anything. I don't know if the phone is at fault here, or the network. This I can ignore for now, unless it's linked with the first problems.

    The solutions I have tried.
    1. Reset.
    2. ROM backup.
    3. Hard reset.

    At this point, I think the best thing to do is to reset everything complete. I don't know if that's a good thing to do nor how to do it.

    welcome to the forum. i don't have any words of wisdom for you, i wish i did. sounds to me like your phone is on it's last breath. if what you mean by completely resetting everything is to do a factory data reset, then go into settings>privacy>factory data reset. good luck.

    Hey, thanks for your reply! For a while there I thought I posted to the wrong section.

    Quite sad. :( I guess I'll wait for a few more responses before throwing the towel for this old timer.
