    Volume up only working in CWM?

    So I had the blinking orange light, and vibrating 3 times when I turn the phone off. From what I've read this is because of a broken volume up button, and the phone thinks its being pressed and tries to boot into something it shouldn't.

    The other day I booted into recovery (I was going to use the trackpad) but I accidentally hit the volume up button. To my surprise, it worked. So I booted into the bootloader, it works there too.

    Does anyone know what might fix this? I originally thought the button was broke, but if CWM and the bootloader can work with it, it must not be, right?

    I was thinking maybe flashing the original PD15IMG to restore it to stock condition, but I just thought I'd get some advice before I tried it.

    Oh and I did the keytest in CWM and when I press volume up it tells me I'm hitting the volume up key.

    Thanks!
    Feeling nice?

    could be a number of things. possibly a corrupt sys file somewhere.
    do a nandroid backup, restore to factory, and see if the problem goes away
    if it does, you know its a s/w problem.

    from here you have two choices:
    1- Restore the nandroid and hope it works properly
    2- Start from zero and add all your stuff one at a time to help isolate the culprit

    these are the only suggestions i can make at this time.
    let us know how it turns out

    Nandroid didn't fix it, but I was able to flash the Stock PD15IMG, and turn S-On, so I sent it back in.

    However, now I'm stuck with a $185 bill to repair it because:

    Repair Description

    We have diagnosed your device and have determined that due to the following reason(s), your device is out of warranty:

    • Case Damage not covered by warranty

    In order to properly repair your device, the following action(s) will need to be taken which will require payment due to the out of warranty diagnosis:

    • Replace Device Main Board
    I think the main board is "out of warranty" because of the case damage. Which is incredibly annoying because there was very little.

    So I'll either have to suck it up and pay $185, or pay $35 to get it sent back.

    I wonder if I can call them and just have them replace the main board so I don't get charged lol

    cant seem to find where you could buy a mainboard for this phone.
    may be cheaper to buy a replacement board, and do it yourself.
    unfortunately the mobo is probably the most expensive part

    check ebay for a used phone with broken screen. sometimes you can buy them cheap
