Hi
I have had my vox for about a year now, and yesterday I installed SmartToolKit on it. I was then browsing my contacts, when the phone suddenly freezed. Then I pushed the "turn off button" on the top of the phone, but nothing happened. Then I had to remove the battery. When i put in the battery again the phone wouldn't turn on anymore, and it still wont. I have tried to hard reset it, but nothing happens. When I try to turn on the phone, the LED lights for about a second, and then it goes out. The display doesn't show anything, and the phone doesn't vibrate. I have tried to take out the memorycard and simcard, but it does not help. What is wrong, and what can I do ?

Have you tried turning the phone on with the power adapter connected (and the battery disconnected).

See if you can get it into bootloader mode (or whatever it's called). Hold down the Camera button and then plug in a usb cable (that's attached to a computer). Good to figure out if it's a hardware or software problem.

I have tried this yes, and it still won't turn on.

I have just tried this, and then I get the "red, green, blue screen". Do you know what this means, or what I can do?

I would think then that something has gone wrong with your software (ROM) rather than any hardware on the phone. Where did you get your vox from (network or htc direct?)

Okay. I have had it since it was new, and I buyed it in a "tele-store", but this happened after I updated the ROM from htc.com. I updated to version 1.34.402.1 I think. Do you know what I can do about it now?

Just wanted to check if you needed a network rom. Seeing as you flashed from htc then no. I think it is worth giving the updater (flash utility) another try, maybe something went wrong in the update.

I'll see if I can flash mine from bootloader mode.

Ok, it does work. Download the flash utility (ROM Updater). Plug your phone as above (camera button+usb) and then run the flash utility. It will of course wipe your phone but hopefully it'll get you back and working.

Don't worry about that, without an activesync connection it doesn't display. Click Next ;)

If you get an actual error, post it back

Did you actually get an error running the ROM update utility? What was it?

You only need the above if you want to flash an unofficial/cooked ROM (they're prob on xda developers though)

Yes I have.. I installed this file "-HTC S710-RUU_Vox_HTC_NORDIC_1.34.402.1_4.1.13.54_03.10.90_Ship" and it does not show any error wile installing, but the phone is the same after the installation. It can still only go to bootloader mode..

If a new ROM hasn't fixed it then it does sound like a hardware problem, I can't think of anything else it could be. Sorry.
