HTC One M7 :: WiFi Doesn't Turn On - Button Blinks For 10 Seconds
Apr 29, 2014
Whenever I try to turn on WiFi on my M7 in the quick toggles menu, the WiFi button blinks for 10 seconds like it is searching for WiFi, but it doesn't. It just turns back off after ten seconds. The only time I can get WiFi to work is when I turn off the phone, then turn it back on. Only then will it work for about 20 seconds before turning off again. I'm running Kit Kat 4.4.2 non-rooted. This problem started about two days ago. As well as that, 50% of the time when I click on the WiFi settings, the phone displays a white page with no menu.
Plugged my phone into the charger last night with everything working fine. This morning, the phone is dead. The red light blinks on and off every 10 seconds or so but, nothing else. Tried everything but, no life.
I have an E72 and my navigation button is constantly blinking slowly when the phone is idle. It's not flashing as to indicate missed call or email etc. It's a slower blink. I't a bit annoying. I seem to remember the same behaviour on the N97 I once had. (Yes, I remember I vowed never to buy a Nokia again but the E72 seems really good.)Does anyone know why the button is blinking? It's a slow fade in/out blink.
Hitting the power button does not turn the display on. Actually nothing turns the display on. This began happening occasionally, for a few seconds at a time. Then it became a few minutes at a time. Now it is permanent.
What's truly odd is that the phone seems to be completely working otherwise. It rings, alarms go off, indicator lights flash. It connects to my car over bluetooth and if I plug in headphones and hit the play headphones' action button, music starts. If I hold the power button down, every 5s I get a little haptic feedback, and it appears to reboot if I hold power and volume up (or down, I can't recall), so I know the buttons are working.
I even have a suspicion that touchscreen digitizer is working because I think I've dismissed a few notifications by double-tapping (I'm on Lollipop). Also, I swear I have seen very fleeting, very dim views of the unlock screen a few times.
I should also add that I took advantage of Google's recent replacement policy lenience - this is a refurb I've had for a month or two.
I'm contemplating replacing the screen/digitizer on the theory that this is a broken screen. It feels like the backlight is broken. But I'd rather not spend the $$$ and time if the problem is deeper than that.
I'm new to this forum and therefore I don't know if I posted this right but I have a problem,verytime I reboot my phone the notification flash blinks and it doesn't seem to want to go off.I tried everything: disabling the flash all together,disable in some applications, every possible solution. But it keeps flashing although I have no messages.The only way to get it to go off is to receive a message, this is bugging me a bit.
Red light blinks every couple seconds- but will not start up.Although, start up has occured, it quickly turns back off again...I have tried to hook it up to the desktop manager but it says it cant find device, i'm assuming this is because its not turned on?
I was at a party and used my phone for a few minutes 4 hours ago and there was no problem. Battery was 78%. After a while I realized my phone was not turning on. After coming back home I connected it to the wall charger and the light is blinking red. When I hold the start button there is a red light constantly but it won't turn on. Holding volume up and start button also doesn't work and there is no vibration. I tried the yellow reset button near the SIM tray and that didn't work either. My phone had a 16 GB built in memory which was pretty used up (It kept telling me transfer to SD card since memory was above 75%). I was going to buy a microSD card for it but now this happened. Is there something I can do to fix my phone?Â
Recently updated my iPhone 4 to ios 7.1.2.Â Currently my worst problem:Â instead of going into sleep mode, the phone turns off completely.Â I then cannot turn the phone back on with the sleep/wake button.Â To turn the phone back on, I need to do a hard reboot each time by holding down the home and sleep/wake buttons simultaneously. I have tried going into settings/general/reset and selecting "reset all".
Last night my phone randomly shut itself off. At first it wouldnt turn back on so I did a battery pull and it turned on. But it was saying that the sim card wasnt registering. So I just shut it off. Now the screen wont turn on. I know the phone still works because the Red Light will blink when I plug it into the charger but still no screen.
I have a samsung lock from bell yesterday i played with my phone went into the *#7986421*# and clicked on debug in the admin config and it gave me a blue screen about updater something and stayed like this then i removed the battery and the phone won't turn on now
all i see the t746 samsung logo but at 3/4 when the line gets filled up the phones turns off and will do the same cycle again and again if i plug the phone on...
When I woke up this morning, my iPhone 4 said that I had to activate it by connecting it to iTunes. I had no computer nearby, so I waited for a while. Now it does not react, unless it plugged in to a Mac. When it is plugged in the apple logo appears for 10 seconds and then it´s gone. It has been blinking for about 4 hours now. I´ve tried to hold the power and the home buttons in several times, but it does not work. It was and still is fully charged.
i am trying to have my blackberry as a modem but since my wifi isnt working this whole situation is just a mess! i dont know what to do .. HELP PLEASE! on top of that i disconnected all connections to see if it works like that but that also did not help at all. my wifi is just acting dumb OR does it have anything to do because i have a MacPro? but it should connect to any kind of laptops.
My phone's battery died and it shut off. So I plugged it in to charge. The charging light just blinks instead of shows up solid (could swear this is solid eventually) and was set on charge for an hour.
It won't turn on now. I'm trying to just at least get it on while charging so I don't miss calls but holding down the power button does nothing.
my device does not turn on, the LED light turn on red for about 15 seconds and then off, the only thing I can see in the screen is the battery charging symbol when I plugged it in for about 3 min and then nothing, I try another battery and is not it.
I'm facing a problem from 2 days. My 8500 curve freezes, and after I need push the red button for some seconds, after I can use it almost normally. Almost, because it seems the "o" key in the keyboard is pressed also when I don't press it. After some seconds, the things turn normally. I suspect a software problem.
When I hit the lock button, my screen turns off, but turns back on only 5-10 seconds after by itself and then stays on until the battery dies. It does stay off if I insert it into a Blackberry belt holster, so as long as I leave it there, it's fine, but I want to take it out and not have the battery drain so quickly.
The only way I can ensure the screen is off when not in the holster is to power off, but I need my phone to be on 24/7 for business.
Just checking if the camera delay issue with the original Droid has been fixed? Do the newer models work better- like Droid 3? I can only take a picture of a static (not moving) object with my Droid as it takes about 3 secs from pressing the screen button to actually taking the picture. If not, any way to minimize the effect? Is it much better (faster) with the new phones- like the Droid 3? I have played around with other phones that allowed fast and smooth pictures.
My LG G4 (H815, T-mobile) has suddenly started shutting off Bluetooth within 6-8 seconds of turning it on. I've tried power cycling, removing the battery, booting into Safe Mode, clearing the BT cache, clearing the entire cache partition, no joy.
It's running Android 5.1. I thought the phone came with 4.4 (I got it about 3 months ago), so maybe an OTA got pushed to the phone last week? I really don't want to factory reset and hope that works.
` I've set my display to turn off after 45 seconds, but despite this my display often turns black after 2 seconds of me not touching the screen which means I have to unlock my phone again and then hold my finger on the screen non stop!
With the latest mm but also with the beta when I send a whatsapp message it doesn't send immediately but takes up to 30 -40 seconds. This happens only on the first one because if I send other messages after that they are sent immediately.
I'm sure it's not a connection issue since telegram works like a charm.
I'm trying to get to the bottom of my high Android System usage (currently 60%), and noticed that if I go into settings>wifi, I can see that my phone is searching for wifi networks every 10 seconds (it shows up in the gray bar near the top that says "WI-FI NETWORKS"). If I go to menu>advanced wifi I have everything un-checked, including "allow Wi-Fi scanning." I would think this would prevent the phone's wifi from constantly searching, but apparently not.
