Angry EMERGENCY w/ 8320

Please Login to Remove!

i have an 8320 and i dropped it, i know, right? the battery was already dying so when i tried to turn it back on it didnt, so i figured i would charge it.all that showed were red and green lights blinking. so i figured it could just need to be reset, so i backed it up, (usb connection worked) cleaned it out, reinstalled the OS and tried to turn it back on, but no deal. i know its on cause when i push the rubber button on the left side of it ut says "Say a commend" and it beeps. could it just be my lcd screen? let me know!

Dropping will/may cause physical damage to the device and reloading the OS would not help.

Sounds like your device needs to be repaired. It is possible that a connection has just come loose but it also could have damaged a something and it will need to be replaced. To see if it is just your screen, did you have any speed dials set up? If so hold that button down and see if it dials. How about calling your self from a land line and see if the phone rings.

Sounds like a trip to the repair shop or replacement. Funny some have dropped their devices many times with no damage and others it stopped working on a moderate fall.
