Hold the volume down button and the power button at the same time. About 30 secs. Phone will vibrate and turn on.

I thought my HTC wasn't charging as well, but doing the above fixed it.

thanks for the advice I had the same problem

I have a HTC desire 510. I noticed yesterday it wasnt charging in my car so I decided when I got home to plug it into an outlet to charge it that way because sometimes it doesn't charge in my car. I was tired so I went to bed and left it charging overnight. When I woke up I noticed it was still charging and it said 1% even though I left on the charger the entire night. It won't even turn on. So I was looking online and it told me to press the power button and the volume buttons at the same time for 30 seconds to 2 minutes and it will reboot itself. I already tried that and nothing worked. Pressing the buttons won't work I checked the charger in the outlet and both are fine I even checked inside of the phone and it to me it looks fine to me. I really need to charge my phone because I'm trying to get an apartment my wife does not have a phone in service I'm also using it for jobs I don't have any money left because it all went to the apartment to get a new phone. Does anybody know what this might be

Try pressing the power and volume button again. Sometimes u have to try it a few times before it works. If not try removing the battery for 10 seconds,plug in the charger and replace the battery. good luck.

Hi,

Is the phone works when the battery is charged?

Can the PC see the phone when you connect it?

Do you try with another micro USB cable, charger?

If yes, you can have:

- bad battery

- broken USB, charging connector or charging line on the mother board

- damaged charging i.c.

- broken battery pin connector

Regards.

The phone works when I charge my battery with the universal battery chargers. I have try charging it with the usb wires and the charger itself but it won't work

by

Just to clarify. It charges with a Universal battery charger but not when plugged into a USB port correct? If the Universal charger is an AC charger (wall outlet) and you are using a computer for a USB port, then your issue is most likely your battery as ZServices already pointed out.

If your phone spends a lot of time in your pockets, check the connection port on the phone for any lint, hair or debris that might be preventing your charging cable from making solid contact. We recommend using a small toothpick or non-metallic object to clean it out. Compressed air might also be helpful.
