I have a HTC Desire C. I performed a reset to factory settings. It went through the whole process, was shutting down to restart but it never restarted and now I can't even turn it on. I have pulled the battery, I've pulled the SD card... doesn't matter what I do I can't get it to turn on. Any ideas???? Can't even find the software for it to reinstall it. I plug into my computer it acknowledges that it is there but do have the software....ugh.
If your phone is not starting anyway try performing hard reset using hardware buttons
Performing a factory reset using hardware buttons
Note: All your data will be lost.
If you can’t turn HTC Desire 700 on or access settings, you can still perform a factory reset by using the hardware buttons on HTC Desire 700.
Important: The Fast boot option in Settings > Power must not be selected.
- Remove the battery, wait for a few seconds, then reinsert the battery.
- Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then press and hold the POWER button.
- Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the POWER and VOLUME DOWN buttons.
- Press VOLUME DOWN to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the POWER button.
If doing the above doesn't help you should reach your nearest htc service center
