Hi Hope someone can help. yesterday I got a memory low message and before I could try to delete anything my phone powered down and started to repower. Now when I turn it on it just keeps repeating the screens that say "droid" and the red eye over and over. The only way I could figure out to stop it is to pop out the battery.

Any idea what is happening and how I can fix it. My only concern is losing pictures

Thanks very much!

If you are stock try this:
Put the battery back in, hold the home button then the power button. When you see the triangle pic hit both volume up and down once. This will be stock recovery. Try wiping cache and reboot. Navigate with volume rocker and select with power button.

If you are rooted please tell us what your setup is.

Thanks! So I got the Triangle pic and hit the search key but nothing happens.
Sorry for being a tech moron but I don't know what rooted means or how to tell you my set up:cry:

Its okay, go back to the triangle Page and Press volume buttons together. Should work.

Let us know if you need more help. If you are strictly just concerned about losing pictures and you have an SDCard loaded you should be safe it should be saving pictures to the SD, so we should be free to do as needed. SD isn't wiped unless you specifically format it.
