8220 Won't turn on after charging....

Ok...  Pretty much the same problem a lot of you are having with the 8220.  But with a twist.  Put the phone on the charger over night and found it had turned itself off through the night.  Couldn't turn it on. No red light, no white screen, no response what so ever.  Tried another battery with no luck.  Tried charging for 2-3 hours and doing battery pull with no luck.  Tried charging for 2-3 hours with a different battery and battery pull with no luck.  I'm out of ideas!

Any suggestions?

Have you tried performing the battery pull reboot WHILE still connected to the charger?

Yup...  Sorry, should have mentioned that.  Also tried it both on USB and wall charger.  Oh, and the battery from the failed phone doesn't weem to work in other 8220's

You can try to reset the device to the factory defaults and see if that help you any.

You will lose any and all personal information, messages, contacts, etc., on the device.

 

If it will connect to the loader.exe, there is a chance to save it.

OK...  Finally had a chance to try to reset the unit.   Since it won't turn on, it can't connect to the loader.  Any other suggestions?
