My LT18i won't start! The notification lamp just keeps blinking red.

My LT18i won't start! The notification lamp just keeps blinking red.

I also removed the back cover. Those two white spots have turned red... What do I do?

It is fully charged...

When I try turning it on, it just does a single vibration, then nothing happens.

Happened Wednesday... No luck with the battery, no. When I plug it in to windows, it says "Device not recognised" worry

As said, the computer reacts not. I have browsed the threads to find your solution, but PC manager can't find the phone.

Dammit! The phone apparently disconnected mid-reboot, and now I can't make it do it again!
