Re: HTC Mogul Red light and Blank Screen

I second the battery being the culprit, when I first purchased the titan the batterry was defective and had the exact same issue, changed the battery and everthing was perfect.

He said he put that battery in another mogul and it worked fine. It's not the battery.

My first mogul when bad and I replaced it with a new one, but the old one will still charge my spare battery, so I see this all the time when I swap out one battery with the other...
so if the batterys bad the yellow light will not come on right
if and if the mogul is what happens

Re: HTC Mogul Red light and Blank Screen

Yesterday I was using my phone while it was on low battery, all of a sudden it died.
I figured the battery died.. When I got home, and plugged it in it too got the red light of death. I let it charge all night, but the light stayed solid red.
When I got to work this morning, I searched the forums here, and tried removing the battery, then putting it back in. It seems to have worked! Now the light is lit orange, as if it's charging.
One thing I might suggest is a dab of DeoxIT on the battery connectors.
It really helps clean those contacts.

I'm no expert, but it doesn't sound like the battery to me. It sounds like you may have actually bricked it.

More info here Phone won't start-no bootloader

Re: HTC Mogul Red light and Blank Screen

Sorry to be the one to give the bad news, but a red light and a black screen = "BRICKED PHONE" The is nothing you can do, yat this point phone won't go even go into the bootloader mode.

The only way to get the phone fixed is via a JTAG flash, which only HTC can do.

Re: HTC Mogul Red light and Blank Screen

yeep..and since you wont be able to activate the phone, theres no way to get it under his plan or add insurance to it, at this point you'd have to go through htc for warrenty or try to get his $$$ back from ebay..which is unlikely since it was working when he got it

then again i mite be wrong..id deff try adding it to his plan + insurance and just pretending it activates over the phone..then goin to the store w/da screen

Which is not true at all if it's a battery issue. As a few people before you explained, the same thing will happen with a faulty battery or connection.

You may be thinking of download mode.
