touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

last night i installed skyfire, it crashed, turned the phone off and touchflo3d wouldn't start, so i disbaled it and re-enabled through today screen.. same problem, and would give me tap here to load msg. so i decided to reset. i reset, everything's back to normal (sprint stock rom)

everything was functioning normal, this time i decided to just keep touch flo disabled. everything was fine, then i installed g-alarm (which i've used before) it asked about the windows time problem, so i clicked yes to restart, except it didn't start back up, it stayed stuck with vibrate with a blank screen, only way to turn it off was to take out the battery, and now no matter what.. even after 'resetting' it(volume, ok, power) it wont load. it gives normal single vibration touch pro screens shows up, disappears, then it continuously vibrates in a blank screen

any way this can be fixed, or know what's going on?

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

i just plugged it into the charger via usb, didn't push any buttons and it went straight into vibrating after a few secs of it being plugged in. no touch screen logo this time, unless i pull the battery out put it back in and push the power button.. then touch pro shows up, and continues vibrating

I would perform a hard reset on your device or put phone in bootloader then restart it

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

i took the phone to the sprint store repair center today (authorized retailer), after they looked at it and opened it up, they said that it's just no good, and they're ordering me a new one for free and they'll give me a call on my house phone whenever it's there to pick up, so is there really nothing i can do to fix this phone?

it sucks because until the new phone comes in, i'm out of a phone.

it just stopped working after restarting, never dropped it or anything, never have i tried to unlock/flash, so i know that wouldn't of messed it up

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

no i think your hard reset didn't work because somehow you corruped your rom if you put it in bootloader by holding the vol down button and power button while pushing soft reset then load spritn official rom update from sticky i am assuming you are not unlocked if you are then flash any rom once you do that it should work if it doesn't then it is hardware i haven't had good luck with skyfire and it has known issues with netcompact 3.5 part of windows so this should get you fresh code give me a thanks if it works

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

it's not unlocked, i've never messed with the rom at all, but yea, somehow the rom must have been corrupted.. but with that said.. don't i need to be able to turn on the phone with the os loaded with activesync to unlock/flash a rom? or no?

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

I just had a exact same problem as the OP, and reflashing with a signed ROM fixed the problem for me as robby37's suggestion. It gave me a quite a scare when it happened.
Q to the OP: did flashing fix your Touch Pro also? if so, has the same problem ever repeated? I'm wondering if I should replace my touch pro if some hardware problem might have caused the ROM corruption.

Re: touch pro wont load, continuously vibrates after touch pro screen

i know the problem is fixed but that is exactly what my vogue did after 12v at 4amps went into the battery prongs of my vogue somehow? i think somehow my vogue new that i was angry at it because it was my third refurbished replacement and i wanted a new vogue. so it killed itself and i got a diamond. then sold the diamond and bought a touch pro for 35 dollars out of pocket
