Device crashes after use and locks screen

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I have a problem with my Tmob MDA Compact III. After using my device for whatever reason, I will come back to it after a few minutes to find that I cannot turn it back on. That is, the screen has turned off as expected, and normally the green flashing led is flashing intermitantly as normal. However pressing the power button has no effect in turning the screen back on. I have checked re battery issues and that seems fine, however this does not happen when it is plugged into the mains. The only way to get back into the device is to remve the battery and turn it back on. I have found when doing this however that the device is far sower to reach the main WM Today screen, especially on the screen prior to the Windows 'loading' screen. I have found that sometimes the screen is not off, but actually dimmed, very low and a dark navy in appearence. Again, the only way to regain control is to remove the battery.

I am running WM6 (standard fro TMob) and have only ran the offical ROMs on it. I've not tinkered with the internals at all! I have performed a hard reset of the device hoping that this would resolve this issue but unfortunatly this still continues.

I'm stuck now and desperatly after help. Cant afford a new phone and contracts not up for ages yet.

Help!!

You say youve upgraded roms official ones? where from

How long ago did you do this?

When did this problem start?

After reflashing last time did you hard reset unit?

Have you done any reg editting on unit?

Installed anything new just prior to screen powering off?

Worse case its not the screen poss mainboard its the powermanagement whats causing this issue, personnally id try hard reset, if still same then reflash unit Use prior rom to the one your currently using

What rom is it your using?

If you need a salvage image you can locate them all over good site to gain advice links etc on this is

The roms are from TMobile and are the offical ROMS. I've never installed anything other than the official TMobile ROMS. I upgraded approx 4 months ago and all has been well until the last few weeks when this problem has occurred. I can think of nothing that I've installed that could have started this off. I hard reset after installing the WM6 ROM and folowed the instructions fully.

I've found that if I set the today screen timout to off the device tends go far longer before crashing which i guess points toward power management.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your reply so far.
