Turning on the phone

2011-10-27, 9:05 AM

This morning I woke up to a frozen screen on my Backflip so I tried locking and unlocking the screen but it wouldnt lock. So I took out the battery and turned it back on to see if that would solve the problem, which it didnt. Now when I turn it on it vibrates, the green LED light flashes, and if you hold the phone at a certain angle you can see the Motorola logo. I have no idea what to do. It wont turn on or the screen wont light up. How do I solve this?

I think that at this point, you may want to try a hard factory reset. Please follow the following steps

1. Power off phone.

2. Hold camera button and power on phone at the same time.

3. Release the camera button when prompted to.

4. You will see a message screen telling you to press the up or down volume button

6. When triangle and phone screen appears

7. Press on the screen just above the back key

8. You will now see the "Motorola system recovery" menu

choose

wipedata/factory reset

Let us know how it went

I had tried tht but it would allow me to press buttons. But after a couple

of days of it being off it turned itself back on and performed like nothing

ever happened. Thanks for the advice though. Much appreciated

Glad to hear that you have it back up and running.
