    Mercury black out

    My Huawei Mercury has gone black for no apparent reason. Phone is three months old and in pristine condition, no water etc.

    Can anyone suggest how to overcome this problem ?

    Mercury will not do a thing. No blink, beep, vibrate, nothing. And all out of the blue. It was left home, on, and ignored for two days of vacation.

    Have you tried pulling the battery? Lame suggestion I know but it has revived phones before.

    this my sound VERY weird, but maybe ur battery is died? try licking the ends to see if u feel a tiny shock! Very unprofessional but it tells u if its got juice or not! or try using another charger!

    ONE more test for you! completely remove ur battery! bout the case back on without the battery! while holding vol up and down plug in ur usb plug! does it turn pink? if it does, i think ur savable! if not it is BYFAR ur device that is bad

    i think i got a guide to unbrick ANY software brick!! i perposely bricked my phone! deleate the recovery and entire folder incluing the boot and emmc file that tell the boot img to boot! the entire folder! (salas did this to on accent!)

    so all u have to do is take out the battery, hold vol up and down and plug in usb and pink screen should pop up =], letting u install ALL ur system fills, ur cust files, ur boot files and all! so far, unless u fry ur hardware with oc or something of that nature, u can unbrick any phone!

    ---------- Post added at 05:44 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:39 PM ----------

    doing this will promise u to get to atleast the recovery! and having the STOCK boot.img will pretty much promise u a clean boot if u have a working rom ^_-

    Erica erica erica aaaaa

    iTS Erica ..
    and you misquote me.. HE HAD A Zio cell phone that he lost or was stolen. When i called to have the phone turned off and the account canceled . they offered to give me a FREE PHONE . They did not want me to cancel the account. They are sending a Ascend 2 . what she told me anyway . i WILL Let you know if it comes in. she said it could take 5-7 days as it will not be the free overnight shipping.

    Hope this clears up any confusion with my post in the other thread. BUT Yes the Mercury has a 12 month warranty thru Huawei. try calling them and CALLING CRICKET then decide who is best to get the warranty repair thru.

    That image can be moded some I'm to sure yet but a while I flashed a few custom ics roms that I found and when I rebooted it a a new bootanimaion but /CUST File was still. Read only but come to my surprise the bootanimation was in /SYSTEM/MEDIA. And the boot img and rest the files were put together like would see in any other rom I think what was being done is scripts were and permissions files to redirect were to read a file is located even though it hasn't been moved I first I figure that how there roms were mad but each rom all 18 if them had a custom boot animation and some were even running CM7

    That's what I figured to but my last mercury all I did will missing around in Root toolbox under ran a script for no bootanimation and when I restarted my phone it booted fine but then would freeze so I pulled they battery out restarted and then would freeze so I go in to recovery to restore my phone and it would freeze and that all it would and it would charge anymore the only I could get the phone to stay on for more then 15 sec. Was to plug it in and with out a battery
