BB Bold 9700 :: Randomly Shuts / Reboot Is Only 5 Seconds?

Aug 23, 2010

On my brother's 9700, he's experienced two random shut downs. He's with Rogers and has the latest OS installed (.743). He would notice that sometimes the phone sort of shuts off by itself. Normally he would keep the phone on standby or lock, but when he'd go to unlock the phone, he'd notice that none of the keys work (screen remains black). Normally the screen would light up and say that the phone is locked, but this doesn't happen. Then, he would hold down the End key for a couple of seconds to power up the phone, only the phone doesn't boot up from scratch. Instead, the Rogers splash screen would appear and it would go directly to his home screen. The phone is only about a week old and is brand new (not refurbished). Is there some sort of lock/standby feature that I'm unaware of that his phone is going into? Has anyone else experienced this?

Galaxy S5 :: Randomly Shuts Down Keyboard For A Few Seconds

Nov 25, 2015

Every so often, the keyboard will just close while typing for a few seconds. It disappears completely.

I was using "Swype" and thought it was a problem with that, but after switching keyboards and re-installing them, I realized it's a universal issue. This especially happens in Whatsapp, but I spend 95% of typing time there, so I can't say fairly.

BB Bold 9700 :: Randomly Shuts Down And Drains Battery

Aug 24, 2010

Less than a week ago I purchased a blackberry bold 9700 brand new on craigslist. As soon as I got it i updated the software to because on the crackberry i saw most people said it was a good build. I run 2 email accounts on my phone and use bbm. I noticed when i received 2 emails + a bbm at the same time the phone would shut off and i would need to do a battery pull to get it to start up again. But recently i noticed that the battery meter at the top left isnt updating properly. When the phones at 50% i still have 3 out of the 5 blocks. I notice that as it begins to dip a bit low past 50% the phone shuts off and when I just do a battery pull it doesnt seem to start up. Then when i plug in the power after some time the red led comes on and then a white screen with an empty battery shows up with a line through it. Then after a while it goes away and it starts up. Is anyone else facing this problem or know a solution

BB Bold :: 9780 Randomly Shuts Off?

Jul 26, 2011

My blackberry bold that's a little over 5 months old Keeps randomly shutting off.. I looked at other peoples posts about theirs turning off and theirs manages to reset itself. Mine will just totally go black screen and that's it.. You can press all the buttons you want and try turn it on it wont do anything. You need to do a battery pull. And its getting worse, it does it about 6-15 times a day now.. Very very annoying cause the darn thing takes 5 miss to turn on! I notice it mostly does it most often whenever IM sending a a text, or browsing the web. Already reset the phone and nothing helped.

BB Bold :: 9900 Randomly Shuts Off?

Oct 31, 2011

It has been a month since I bought my 9900. Lately I have noticed that it randomly shuts off. I think the problem is with the hardware because any slight taps on the back made it restart. Has any of you heard of this before?I really like my 9900, but this is just stupid. The phone is brand new. Is there any way I can exchange it (in seattle) for a new one, even though I bought back in Saudi Arabia?

BB Bold 9700 :: 7min Reboot Now 3min Reboot My Test / Findings?

Mar 30, 2010

Reboot complete (main screen/carrier logo) First Time and Device Usable Second Time
3:13 - 3:37 Custom Theme
3:11 - 3:25 Default Carrier Theme
Theme's have no real effect from what I've noticed. Unless you have a really big gfx intense theme.
3:13 - 3:23 Password
3:13 - 3:25 Password + wallpaper on mem card
7:09 - 7:21 "Memory Clean Turned on" + Theme + password + wallpaper on mem card Re-test (that was way too long)
6:36 - 6:45 "Memory Clean Already On" + Theme + password + wallpaper on mem card.
3:23 - 3:45 "Encrytion Media Card Only" + BerryWeather + Theme + password + wallpaper on mem card + Mem Compression Memory Clean and Encrytion (Device Memory Enabled) either one of those on will increase reboot time by atleast 2-3mins. When enabling Device Memory encryption Memory Clean is automatically turned on and can't be disabled. So in my testing reboot time was between 6-7mins. My current config setup is that last test. Since Password is on, I see no need for Device Memory encryption to be on. Without the password you can't gain access to device files. ZonaSnap , QuickLaunch, Blink all preloaded during each test. 8 Email Accounts, about 80 read emails, and 100+ sms, 41 apps anyone that is getting 1-2min reboot please post your settings.

BB Bold 9700 :: 9700 Shuts Down While Recording Videos And Websurfing

Aug 17, 2010

I have a problem with my 9700 and I donīt really know if it is the phone or the battery.It shuts down when I use an aplication that needs power, like recording videos, websurfing, downloading/installing apps thats sort of stuff. It goes off, and I have to pull batt to get it started again.If I do it 3 times in a row for example, the battery goes down from 100% to 70% in just the time it needs to restart those 3 times.I tried to do a security wipe, reinstall the os (.862), taking out the micro sd and it keeps shuting down. I donīt know if it could be a battery problem or the phone. any idea?

Galaxy S5 :: Screen Shuts Off After 15 Seconds

Jan 9, 2015

My co-worker asked me to fix her Galaxy S5 because I have the same phone, but I can't figure it out.

The display dims after 12 seconds and shuts off 3 seconds later.

I've turned off power saving features and even changed the time out to 10 minutes and no luck.

I tried turning on smart stay, but that got me to about 30 seconds and no farther.

BB Bold 9700 :: Phone Shuts Itself Off While Sending Text

Feb 8, 2010

Has anybody else experienced failures with this phone? I replaced my curve with a 9700 on an upgrade, only to have the brand new Bold 9700 completely die after 6 days. The next one lasted 14 days, and now I sit with my third broken 9700 that went a whopping 2 days.

Every time, the phone will be sending a text and then shut itself off. When I try to do a hard restart by pulling the battery, I get a constantly glowing red LED for a few seconds.Before getting the third phone, I had my SIM card replaced, memory card replaced, and got a whole new set of charging cords. Heck, I hadn't even charged it since I picked it up...

BB Bold 9700 :: Device Set Back Light Goes Off After 20 Seconds

Jul 6, 2010

I've had my AT&T Blackberry Bold 9700 since November of 2009 and am just experiencing this problem. My device is set so the back light goes off after 20 seconds. Whenever I put it down or lock it, the back light goes off just as it should. But, within 5-10 minutes, it turns back on without provocation and won't shut off again until I unlock and re-lock the phone.

As you can imagine, this is killing my battery life. I've tried playing with the settings, but nothing seems to do the trick. I've rebooted several times and removed the battery twice, but neither has worked. Anyone encounter this issue and/or have any suggestions on how to fix it?

BB Bold :: 9700 - Calendar Go To Last Appointment When Opened After Few Seconds

Jun 28, 2011

Using Bold 9700 Ver # Running updated version of Blackberry Desktop Manager 6.0.1 with Windows 7 and Outlook 2003 with SP3. Use agenda view for calendar, tried the "Show free time in Agenda View" but didn't like it so unclicked it and now, when I open my calendar; the current appts show for a couple of seconds, then it jumps to my last appts in 2014. If I check the free time box again and try to open my calendar it doesn't jump ahead. If I uncheck it again, it jumps ahead again. I've tried turning it off and taking the battery out but doesn't work. The local Telus store never heard of it before.

BB Bold 9700 :: Screen Lightens Up After 20 Seconds In Bedside Mode

Jan 12, 2010

I have the device set up for "Bedside Mode" when charging (sits in the OEM dock at night). I left the device "on" and placed in the dock. The keyboard light, screen all dim as they should and the "clock" displays on screen as well. Then after about 20 sec the keyboard buttons all turn on and the screen brightens up. A couple of sec's later they all dim back down. This process repeats itself over and over like the damn thing has a heartbeat or something! I don't recall this doing this the first two nights that I used the new dock/bedside mode.

IPhone :: It Shuts Down Randomly

Mar 26, 2012

My iPhone 3GS shuts down randomly everyday during use. Plenty of battery (more than 50% at the lowest). It just goes black. And there is a strange vertical banding in the black dead screen. Restarting begins working, apple logo appears, but after a long wait it just quits again and goes black. Again, there is plenty of battery charge, this can happen on a full charge. Have tried hard-restarting by pressing power and home with the same result. Only when I have plugged it into a power source does it boot. It can then be disconnected immediately and used for hours, or until it crashes again.

This often happens with angry birds (any version) but that's just because I play it too much, it can also happen using apple apps like mail

IPhone :: It Randomly Shuts Off

Apr 13, 2012

I purchased a new 16gb AT&T iPhone4s a few days ago and today when I went to use my phone I noticed it had turned off by itself. The only way I was able to power it back on was to hold the home and power buttons at the same time. I did a lot of research on the problem and saw that if the Diagnostics had a panic.plist that there are hardware errors or failures involved.

So I looked at my diagnostics and can confirm there are two logs with the panic.plist header. panic(cpu 0 caller 0x8007617c):lck_mtx)lock():mutex (0x9B5A2820): 0x000080000. The phone came preinstalled with OS 5.1.

So I am here to ask if this is a case where I have no choice but to replace my phone... From everything I've read it seems to be the case, but I've only had the phone for a few days and would be really upset if this were the case. I gave Apple a call and they said to basically not worry about it unless it happens again... but after doing the research it has just got me more worried.

IPhone :: 4s Randomly Shuts Itself Off

May 7, 2012

My iPhone 4s randomly turns itself off during calls, text, and emails. It has never been dropped, gotten wet, or been exposed to extreme heat or cold, so I can't understand why all of a sudden this is happening. I bought it in October 2011, so it's not even a year old yet.

IPhone :: 3GS Randomly Shuts Down?

May 20, 2012

My iPhone 3GS randomly shuts down for no reason, and apparently I am not the only person having a problem with this. This happens regardless of how much battery life my phone shows, or whichever application I am using. I understand that cell phones are not built to last forever, but my phone is in to good of a condition to go out and purchase a new one.

IPhone :: 3GS Shuts Off Randomly

Jun 2, 2012

I've had my iPhone 3GS since Feb. of 2010. The same phone since Feb. 2010 with no problems. I noticed my phone started shutting off around 20% in December. I didn't think of it as a big problem. Then it got worse and started shutting off around 35% in mid-January 2012. Then it started shutting off at 50% around early March. Now it's June 2012 and it's basically shutting off around 70-80%. Sometimes it shuts off around 87% when I try to play a phone game. It's gotten to the point where I can't use my phone outside at all because it'll just shut off. I've tried restoring the phone and that doesn't work. I've tried "X-ing" out comments I don't use. I've known other people with this problem who've tried restoring to factory settings and that didn't work. I don't want to waste my upgrade on the iPhone 4S when the iPhone 5 is coming soon. I don't know what to do.

Is there a battery replacement that I can get? I don't have money to cough up for another phone. I don't want to waste my contract upgrade for another phone. I want to wait until the iPhone 5 to upgrade. And I'm out of warranty now so Apple probably won't replace my phone.

IPhone :: 4S Screen Shuts Off Randomly?

Mar 22, 2012

My iPhone 4S screen shuts off randomly while I am using it. It only happens when I unlock the phone or open an app. The screen shuts off and stays off until I hit the home button, and then it comes back on but instead of showing the lock screen, it shows the animation of the app closing and going back to the home screen. I have restored my phone and that did not fix the problem. Any other ideas of what I could do to fix it, or should I take in in to an Apple store and have them check it out? It happens probably once or twice a week.
