    Ok, so the XT1080 is officially dead. A green light briefly appears when I plug in the power, but after a 24 hour charging session, the phone will not power on.

    This is the Droid Maxx that went into the hot tub back in June. It spent a few days in rice, then over a month with its back off in a bag with a giant bag of dessicant.

    So, having resigned myself to the loss, and having replaced the phone, how do I get the data? There area pictures, videos etc. A lot of it is back up, some not. Is there a micro SD card buried somewhere in there I can get out of it, or is it locked up in onboard storage somewhere?

    Have you tried both charging from wall outlet and pc usb port? Sometimes one will charge where other has failed.

    Yesterday I had to hold down the power button for about 10 seconds while plugged into a wall charger to get a Maxx HD to power on. Maybe try that if you have not already?
    To Mt knowledge there is no hidden SD card, just the regular internal hard drive

    Sadly your data can not be recovered if the device will not power on. The Droid Maxx does not have an SD card slot. All storage is built into the phone.

    Hmmm... I had only tried an AC charger.
    I just now plugged it into a USB port on my system, and the green light STAYED ON.
    So, I will leave it for several hours as advised, and the we shall see.
    Thanks to all for your advice and sympathy!

    Any luck with this? I've had tablets which didn't power on, but I found out that the USB cable was bad. A new cable solved the problem.

    Yes there is, it's in the volume button. You pull the volume button out and it's right there.

    I know it's a little confusing, but that's not a micro SD storage card - that's the nano SIM card that activates the phone on a carrier network.

    Yeah, I realized that about 5 minutes after I posted it. I sat here thinking "Wait a minute, that's my SIM card!", but not familiar with the difference, I decided to google the difference between the two and when I got my answer I figured I'd return here with several replies correcting me. Thanks for not treating me like a complete idiot. lol

    When stumbling across this discussion, I was looking for an answer to a similar problem I've encountered with my Droid Maxx. I dropped it a couple weeks ago, spider webbed the screen, but it still worked for about a week. I was a month away from upgrading and hoped to make it till then, because from what I understood from my carrier I'd be able to upgrade with just the cost of tax. Didn't workout that way though, it went down last wk-end and I ended up using my insurance. Now I've got to turn in my old phone within a about 10 days and the screen is black, but I can hold the power button down and hear it power on. Back up assistant didn't download all my apps and messages, so I'm looking for away to transfer them some how. I've tried connecting the old phone to my laptop, but it doesn't show up. I thought about taking apart the two phones, connecting the LCD screen to my old phone long enough to upload everything from the phone to the cloud, but I'm afraid to take the chance on messing something up. I've already took apart the old phone several times and put it back together, it's very interesting how it's assembled. I've successfully took it apart, put it back together 3 or 4 times without messing it up any worse than what it already is. Still afraid to take the chance with the new one though. Any opinions or ideas are more than welcomed.
