HTC EVO 4G :: Wireless Shuts Off After Try To Use It
Jul 17, 2010
I can turn on my wifi and it will stay on but after I try to load my internet browser or youtube or anything that uses the wireless it shuts off. I am so lost I have tried a restart a battery pull and deleting the router and setting it up again, still does the same.
Sorry if this has been asked and answered but I searched and could not find a reply. I am new to Android OS and I noticed today that when I start my wireless connection on my EVO the 3G connection closes. When I disconnect wireless 3G starts. Is this normal or have I tripped a setting somewhere that causes this?
The main reason i wanted a rooted phone was so i could connect to my laptops ad hoc network and use a program for wireless keyboard and mouse. i cant really afford the real thing at the moment and with my laptop hooked up to my flat screen its kind of necessary to have..
So ive rooted my phone and tried a few roms. currently i have this one: [ROM] [05/18/2010] Tainted Vanilla V1.4 OVERCLOCKED - xda-developers
I always run into the same problem though. wired or wireless, i cant get it to connect right. wired never works in any way but i dont really care about that. wireless however shows some signs of working. it shows some data has been sent, not received though. and my computer will detect and connect to it, but seems to lose the signal after a few moments. when i bring up a browser it doesnt even look like something might load. it just says im offline. could someone help me with this?
The other part of this problem is i really just want to connect to my computers ad hoc network and use a wireless keyboard and mouse program. none of them seem that great unfortunately.. recommendations are appreciated. but my biggest issue is that i cant seem to connect to an ad hoc network. i believe my phone detected it only once while i was on the "white widow" rom, but could never quite connect..
I recently rooted a 2.2 stock phone, using the XDA method (clockwork). Everything seems to work fine, except for two things: BIG THING: Whenever I try to use the GPS function on my phone the phone just shuts off and restarts. (this is when I use the GPS satellites function. NOT when I use the "use wireless networks" setting under the Location sub-section of settings) When I turn on GPS and try to get "my location" in google maps. It restarts. When I use Yelp it turns off.
SMALL thing: The wifi tether is decent but it often stops working (I used the google one). I.e. The computer that's connected to the wireless network either gets disconnected, or it thinks it's disconnected but the internet just doesn't work. At this point, I just simply shut the tether on and off. But it's slightly inconvenient. Is this an issue other people are having?
I turn the 4g on and it immediately shuts off when it says scanning. It only rarely actually works and this has only been happening the past month or so. I just rooted it with unrevoked3 last week though. the problem has been before that. I do now have wireless tether installed but I don't have it active when I try to update. I've tried it with Wireless tether On and Off, with Mobile Connection On and Off, with Sprint Hotspot On and Off, nothing makes a difference. I've rebooted numerous times. The past few days I've been using Advanced Task Killer to kill apps every 30 minutes in aggressive which gives me crazy good battery life even with syncing and fairly bright light and normal usage. Like three days with only two spots of 30 minute charging. It also charges much faster though.
I don't know why it works sometimes. I can't find anything linking the working moments. I'm in a fairly good 4G area when it works, I get around 1.3 megabytes coming down at the peak. Is there anything I can do? Is anyone else experiencing this? I would think that if it actually scanned, it would take longer than an eighth of a second to do so.
Have been having this problem for the Moment for a while now. Once a call is placed the phone will go black and I am unable to access the onscreen functions (Speaker, Dialpad, etc). I've tried tapping the screen, hitting the back button and hitting the menu button, but the screen remains black. At some point it MAY come on or just briefly flash on. This has been very annoying - especially with calls that require multiple prompts.
I use my phone as my alarm clock. Every night I put it on the charger and leave the night desk clock on. It stays on and doesnt shut off. In the morning the alarm goes off but Tue screen is blank. Pushing any button on the device puts the alarm in snooze mode. The only way I can make the alarm stop is to have the screen on and waiting for the alarm to sound so I can press the dismiss button. I'm pretty sure this started after I installed Brightness Profiles from the marketplace. I have since uninstalled that program but the problem persists. I have "Never sleep while charging" checked in the options but it makes no difference. There was a new development this morning. I was using the web browser this morning while plugged into the charger and the screen just shut off. I turned it back on with the power button and had to slide to unlock. The screen never shuts off in the car while charging. I have the timeout set to "Never".
EVO newbie here. I was using iheart radio along with Google navigation a few days after getting the phone. It worked the way it should have, navigation voice comes on, radio pauses, navigation voice stops, radio resumes broadcasting.Well tried to use it the same way and every time the nav. voice spoke the radio paused but wouldn't resume like it should have. I thought it might be the iheart radio app so I tried it with the stock music player and the same thing. Nav. voice speaks, music pauses, nav. voice ends, music doesn't resume.What's up with that? That is one of the main features that turned me to the EVO.
I have a sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, rooted...Int he past week or 2, whenever I am in an application (Chrome, Yahoo, GTalk, etc) The screen will sometimes randomly shut off. It just goes black, i can still touch and use whatever app I was in (I can hear the sounds of clicks, etc) and the buttons stay lit on the bottom. When I press the lock button it makes the lock noise. When I then unlock it, i get to the lock screen with no problems. If I unlock into whatever app I am running, the screen will almost immediately shut off again, or sometimes after a few seconds, or sometimes it waits until i touch the screen. BUT, if I unlock into a system app (messages, phone, homescreen, etc) the problem doesnt happen. I have tried adjusting all the display settings for screen timeout, rebooting, battery out, killing services, etc and nothing seems to work.
My phones got a full battery but if I go to take it off the charger it shuts off. I've tried taking the battery out but still doesn't turn back on unless I plug it back into the charge. I need my phone for work I drive the work truck and have to stay in contact with the people at work.
From last one day, I am suffering from this problem, my HTC Desire HD rooted and installed with ViperDHD keeps restarting as it soon as it boots. The phone bootscreen shows, finishes, even the android home screen appears but just for one second and then goes blank and restarts. This all started happening, when I had connected my phone with my computer and a restart occurred, instantaneously.
I have tried everything, Factory reset, full wipe, keeping battery out for 10 minutes, removing SIM and SD card, formatting SD card, even re-installling 2 different ROMs with Full wipe but the problem still persists.
While I do realize it might be a hardware issue but it is impossible go give it up to any service center because it is an imported piece without any warranty. I won't give up that easily. Here are some of the stuff I tried, and some observations I made Device shuts off at bootscreen if there is no SD card, (I doubt that SD card is an essential thing).
I can only boot into recovery where adb logcat or adb bugreport don't work. I tried adb shell find -f | log. None of the log files seemed useful. Is there something I can find here?
What kind of hardware issue might it be? Is it possible to debug it? and what causes shut down? and since I am have some knowledge of computers at lower level, C and linux, is it possible to hack into the kernel and perhaps correct what might be wrong?
Was on my way to Florida yesterday and my phone was charging, and it just shut off. When I plugged it back in, it just flashed the notification light. Now it doesn't do anything now. What sucks is I am in Florida, and wont be going back till the 28th. Guess I'll be phoneless till then.
the phone is top notch but every now and then it will just shut down and then will take bout half hour to get back on as when turn on it shuts down again and again. It mainly happens when running apps and internet, say i got internet n fb running then i start typing a text it will shut down for no reason i havnt a clue why this is happening. Getting so frustrating as i love the phone but i cant deal with it. Also why cant i browse the main browser using my 3g connection only with wi-fi but i can use opera mini using 3g ? thanks alot !
Encountered a wierd issue with my Samsung Moment this weekend. I would click on my browser icon (Google is bookmarked as my home page) the google page would load, start "acquiring my location" and then automatically shut down my browser. So I went through the Sprint help desk for several hours with no answer and no fix. I changed my home page to something other than Google and now my browser seems to work just fine. But everytime I go to the google webpage, like I'm doing a google search it shuts down the browser. Flipping weird! Another heads up. if I use my Google searchwidget, it seems to work just fine.
I've read all the posts I could find. I just want the phone to never dim. The option to have it shut off at 2 minutes is perfect. I just hate the dimming that happens before it shuts off. I have tried screebl but is completely disables screen off timer. I just want it to stop dimming and just shut the screen off according to the display timeout. It dims reguardless of manual or automatic brightness. I don't want to disable the screen off timer either. IF I leave the phone on at the table and walk away, I do want it to turn off in 2 minutes. What can I do to just keep the freaking phone from dimming yet still shut off with the timer?
I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 (SPH-L720). My device is currently stock rooted running Android 4.4.2. I recently just did a factory reset and need to encrypt my device. I have my screen lock password setup and when I select to encrypt the device it shows the screen with the android gear icon for a second then shuts off. About a minute later it will turn on again on its own and boot right up to the regular lock screen. It will not encrypt and gives no error message.
The only references I have found on a Google search about encryption not working was referring to an error message saying the encryption failed and asking the user to factory reset.
I just bought the car doc and was playing with the GPS while listening to Pandora. Every time the GPS plays an audio instruction to make a turn, Pandora shuts off. Same goes when I do a speech to text with Pandora running. Anyone else see this?
My Moment shuts off whenever it feels ike it I when im in the middle of a convo texting just about anything and my battery plays games Ive had the phone for a month and a half and I have hard rest it just about every week since then
I have in my car a hands-free kit for a Qtek 9100 which has work fine for years with the Qtek. I bought a mini to micro USB adapter so that I could use the kit with the new Desire HD, but when I plug the new phone to the micro USB adapter the Desire HD just shuts down and I have to remove and replace the battery to get it working again.
for some reason my phone keeps shutting off. the only times it shut off on me is when i've been using either: google maps, browse the internet, sprint family locator, yellow pages, i think that's it.i've also had problems with my phone not staying asleep. i've posted about it before, but never found a resolution.i have wiped, reflashed, PLENTY of times.
With increasing frequency, pressing the power button on my HTC desire running Froyo only dims the screen, it doesnt put it into standby. This never happened until recently but is now quite a regular thing. In order to put it into stand by i have to press the button several times before it decides to do what I'm telling it to.
When I run my applications, I get [2009-05-16 23:33:44 - Emulator] 2009-05-16 23:33:44.002 emulator[20579:10b] Warning once: This application, or a library it uses, is using NSQuickDrawView, which has been deprecated. Apps should cease use of QuickDraw and move to Quartz. The emulator crashes without running my app. Eclipse errors and shuts down. Are there any work around for this with the emulator?
I definitely would love to see some battery performance. But i see that juice defender shuts your service off every 5 minutes or some cycle that you can set to.. So during these shut offs. What happens if i get a text? or want to send a text? or if i get a call/want to send a call? Or if i want to surf the net? Does it some how register that I'm getting a call or text and automatically turn the service back on or what?
I'm currently having an issue where my browser shuts down when I open certain websites. In particular. androidforums.com. The strange thing is it doesn't force close. The screen just goes black momentarily, then I'm back at my home screen. It's happening on all browsers, so it's not an application issue. I've never had this issue before, and I recently installed Hydra Kernel #3 (UV/OV 1.15 w/ N). Is this something other people are experiencing in conjunction with a hydra kernel? If not, do any of you guys know what could be causing this?
I upgraded my Captivate to 2.2 two weeks ago and ever since the phone will shut itself off without making a sound (screen just goes black like the battery was pulled out) randomly. I do notice it never does it if the charger is plugged in.
I also am having a problem with txting. Sometimes when I am replying to a txt to one person, it will sent the message to a random person in my contacts instead of the person I intended to send the txt to.
Lastly, when I take a pic with the camera or download a pic from a txt, it takes awhile for it to show up in my gallery...
None of these things were happening when it was still running 2.1.
Ive been stalking the forums for a few weeks, reading up on all the issues and things associated with this phone and i can say ive experienced most of them (excluding rooting issues, i havent rooted).
*(of course) gps issues *phone spontaneously shuts off and battery has to be removed before it will turn back on *randomly awakes itself from sleep just to display the lock screen *painfully short battery life *no signal for a long time, have to restart phone several times before it returns.
These have all plagued me horribly the past month or so. then today it decided it wanted to....::gasp:: behave?
My battery still had half its life left when i got home tonight and its usually dead or yelping for a charge by that time (activity/usage the same today too). pages loaded quickly today and i had a signal all day.
I use Cherry and AOR Players, which seem to be the same thing. Regardless of which, when I'm playing a Shoutcast feed (wifi) it simply shuts off. This would be a minor annoyance except for the fact that I like to listen to it when I go to bed. Having to keep restarting the feed is not conducive to relaxing and eventual sleep.
They tend to shut off on my laptop too but nowhere near as frequently. What are your experiences?
I was wondering if there is a way to set the minimum voltage cutoff (when the device forcefully shuts off), if it's device specific then we are working with the HTC Aria. The reason why I ask this, is that I have a device with a 12 Ah (that's 12,000 mAh) battery. Now I'll be straight, I'm an EE so software is not my forte, I work with analogue circuits, not software. So my knowledge of programming is nil. I was going to go the extra mile and make a flyback regulator to keep the voltage at 4 volts all the time (I can get it to work down to .5 volt if I wanted), but did not want the extra mass. (Already have 3 long C cell size sized batteries, don't need a PWM board on top of that). If this is the wrong thread, call me a noob and kick me in the nuts a few times, will ya? BTW the minimum voltage we are working with is 3 volts.
My son rooted ny Galaxy Note 2 (SGH-i317). After 3D Launcher crashed it, I tried the Galaxy Toolkit offered by mskip. It seemed to work well. I set the phone back to completely stock. (in the hopes of rooting again). But now I get these messages
a) google.process.gapps has stopped
b) Contacts has stopped
c) Gallery has stopped
When I try to dial a number the phone freezes after the first number then suts down. Contacts open in a plain black screen.
