Bring Dead Phone Back to Life?

I have an early Sprint PPC-6700 (Fusion) that a work mate was flashing and it went dead. It's no longer on our work phone plan so I can't get it repaired from Sprint. It's my phone if I can get it back up and running. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Mark.

Take the battery out for a while, plug in the phone, insert the battery, try to get er into bootloader mode, failing that try a hard reset, if you get er into bootloader mode then flash it up and there you go...

If all else fails flash it with the original sprint rom. Once you get it back up you can flash it with the mods.

That did it. The phone was really dead - no power, no lights, no response to anything. I thought it was physically gone. I tried everything I could thing of. But then I did what you said, take the battery out, plugged in the usb charger and the charging light blinked. Yeah, it wasn't as dead as I thought. I then put the battery in and hard reset and lo and behold there was the reset message. So I went directly to the bootloader sequence and up it came. Now I got myself another 6700.

THANK YOU nuguy !!!

Never plug into the phone's mini usb port without the battery in it. It can cook your phone permanently. When you have the problem you're describing, remove the battery. Wait a bit, put the battery back in. Plug into the mini usb. The screen will usually light up. At this point, cold boot by holding down the power button and using the stylus in the reset opening.

I tried that. I got the phone without a battery. Put my spare charged battery in it and nothing. Plugged the usb charger in and still nothing. No led's, no screen, no charging light, nothing. Tried soft, hard resets, nothing. Tried bootloader, nothing. It was dead, dead, dead. That's why I thought it was an electrical problem. But when I plugged in the usb charger without the battery I got a response on the charging led (blinking red). And then you know the rest of the story. Maybe it just needed a jump start?

Vdude, are you sure about the fry it thing, I mean, hey I know you know your stuff n all. However I've changed batteries while plugged in, and had the cahrger in before seating the battery the day I got my 6700... I guess I've been lucky.

Re: Bring Dead Phone Back to Life?

I hate to revive an old thread but I plug an Apache in via USB without batteries too. I have one Apache with busted USB jack (charge the battery on the cradle) and another one with broken battery contacts. It has no problems running on straight USB.
