    My Droid woke up dead

    My X was on the charger all night and when I got up this morning the green LED was on and when I unplugged it from the wall charger, the phone was not on. It was on when I left it on the charger last night. The last thing I did before turning in last night, was to download Launcherpro, I was going to play with it today setting it up and all. I returned it to the charger and left it, but am getting no response at all now. I did get it to turn on for about a minute , but now no response at all. Any ideas?

    Are you sure the usb was pushed into the charger all the way?

    I had a dead X due to that....

    Do a battery pull and then try to turn it back on.

    Also, do you have an alternate charger to plug the phone into to see if you can get power to it...
    Failure isn't falling down, failure is staying down.

    well... how can it wake up dead?

    but that is odd. Launcher Pro shouldnt mess anything up (thousands of people use it, including me without a problem)

    you dont have a sig saying you rooted your phone, but if you are rooted, you may have messed something up that only takes into effect after a restart
    Rooted Droid X!

    I try to assist people with problems whenever possible. If you feel I have helped you, please press "thanks" Thanks!

    OK, so I figure I got a brick. So as much as I hate going to the corporate store, it is always swamped and you have to wait for an hour minimum, I got myself around and headed right over so I would be there when they open. Got there 10 minutes before opening and sat in my car playing with the X trying to no avail to get it to respond, but no luck. Walked up to the door 5 minutes before opening so I would be first. Fiddled with the phone some more, Removed the battery and reinstalled, nothing. The lady opened the door and let me in, asked how she could help. I told her my phone was dead, she takes it from me presses the power button and it comes on. She puts it on the charger thing and it shows 20%, which does not explain how I could have it on the charger all night and only have a 20% charge on the phone, but I looked the fool anyway. Got out to my car and put it on the charger and it was charging just fine. Took the phone from 20% to 40% in the short 10 minute ride home. Put it on the wall charger at home and nothing. Me thinks me has a bad wall charger. Hooked it up to my computer by USB and it is charging.

    They will replace your charger if it's bad....

    Yar, 1yr warranty on most chargers, if not lifetime.
