Random Power Offs


Recommended Posts

Does anyone find there WP8 device is powered down (off) when they left in on for several hours (overnight)? My 4-day old Samsung Ativ S turn itself off overnight, while it was left off the charger.


* I have read that multiple Windows Phone 8 devices from various manufactures and carries can experience this issue.

I've had one power off experience since getting the Lumia 928. Using a twitter app and accidentally opening some french website completely reset the phone. Hung a moment, powered off.  Have never come up to it in a powered off state like you explain.

The other posts seem to be closer to the launch of the platform back in late 2012. I'll see if it happens again. My battery app tells be it happened about 6:20am and I slept in until about 8:20am, so it was only off two hours or so.

I just started to experience random poweroffs starting about a month ago. I can't seem to pin down what exactly I am doing that causes it. Often when I pull it out of my pocket I find it has powered off. A few times I heard the phone vibrate as I set it on the table. I check and sure enough it is off. I have a Verizon HTC 8x

      I've a N36L Proliant Microserver that has been happily sitting on a shelf doing NAS type stuff since 2011. I was away last week, and came back to it dead. It now won't switch on at all. No lights, no flickers of LEDs when power on switch pressed, nothing - so no real diagnostics! Checked fuse, checked mains power, all OK.

      I'm presuming its a blown PSU - is that a good guess?

      And, given the age of the machine, I'm suspecting it is likely to be best to simply replace it with a Gen8 replacement rather than faffing around trying to replace a PSU (which may or may not be the cause of the failure). Or is it worth trying to salvage?

      (I'm hoping the disks in the machine survived the failure - there's a 6TB WD Green, a 2TB WD Green, a 250GB Seagate and a 750GB Samsung in there at the moment. Running XUbunutu.)

      I just packed up my AT&T LG Optimus G Pro to sell because I love my Samsung Ativ S Windows Phone 8.
      I am on my fourth phone in 2013. I started with the iPhone 5 (which I got at launch in 2012), left iOS behind for Android when I got the LG Nexus 4, and went big with the LG Optimus G Pro. I was falling in love with Android, and wanted LTE and a larger screen. However, I got bored quickly. Even after trying skins, themes, launchers, icon packs, etc... Something didn't feel right. There is nothing standout to explain my experience, but to ponder if Android and the endless customizations were too much for me.
      I was attracted to Windows Phone 8, but always found the Lumias either too heavy/bulky (920) or screens too small and lacking power (820). The HTC 8X was very compelling in early 2013, but feels dated now due to the HTC One truly showing what the vendor can do. Never a fan of Samsung, they are growing on me. I replaced my iPad mini, Nexus 7 and Asus Vivo Tab Smart with a Samsung Ativ Tab (Windows RT, Snapdragon S4) tablet. I love the device, so I gave the Ativ S phone a try.
      Blown away. Lightest phone I recall owning and every holding. Plastic is there, but it is unique with the style and texture. This is my first Super AMOLED HD display (AMOLED of any kind actually) and the colors truly do pop on Windows Phone 8. Buttons are responsive and work as desired. I prefer hardware Windows buttons to capacitive. It feels fairly fast and capable. No bloatware as it was an unlocked version sold to be by an importer on Amazon offering Prime shipping Although it came seal in the factory box with a EU charger, they included the US adapter separately outside the primary packaging.
      Windows Phone 8 is what I need in a phone. Superb Exchange integration, trumping all other OS and platforms. (I also enjoy Exchange Active Sync on Windows RT Mail (8.0) and Outlook RT (10.1). Outlook.com email works equally well, and I have my Gmail account setup for both send and receive via my Outlook.com account. Samsung included some apps, that were easily removed and didn't add much value.
      All together I have installed the following apps (and purchased paid version when available):
      AccuWeather (perfect small live tile to report current temp) Amazon Kindle Amazon Mobile Battery (great small live tile with nice reports/reminders) Blink Facebook Fandango (not needed thanks to Bing but nice to purchase tix) Flixster (there for trailers) Games: Jetpack Joyride Shuffle Party Wordament Light Guide Here Drive Here Maps Instance (not a bad version on Instagram) Level MetroTalk (I use Google Voice and this is perfect for calls/texts via my Google Voice number) Metrotube (I love it so far!) Microsoft Store NC News (gorgeous live tile and lock screen images) Netflix (so-so quality) Network Speed Test (using an iPhone provision SIM from my work phone, no LTE but getting 10Mbps/1Mbps on average on AT&T) OneNote OpenTable Pandora (very nice app) Photo Editor (only Samsung app I left installed) Photogram (Samsung app I downloaded to add filters and such) Photsynth pod.ding (not a bad podcast app at all, and for a heavy user, it gets it done) Read Later (wish it would fully integrate into a "Share" panel for Pocket sharing from any app) RedLaser Relax Melodies Premium (great for my rain sounds I like to fall asleep too) SkyDrive Skype TeamViewer (access home/work PCs from anywhere) Translator (Bing) TweeterLight (not perfect, but MeTweets wouldn't pull to refresh well) Unit Converter Vevo (decent quality compared to Netflix) Windows Phone Insider (nice to get some wallpaper and ringtone options easily) YouTube (useless official app, hoping for a real update) First day I was worried about battery life. After a full charge and discharge cycle, day 2 is much better. I came off the charger at 8:54AM, 46% battery left, and 6 hours and 40 minutes reported remaining via Battery. I can live with that type of battery. I use bluetooth in the car with my Ford Sync (works very well and seems to support every feature). I also use bluetooth at home with my various wireless speakers. It speaks just as well as iOS devices, and way better than Android which could tend to skip during WiFi use.
      I wanted to start this thread with the above thoughts. More to come!

      With "disable display scaling on High DPI" checked in the app properties, Flash CC 2014 is unusable on the Surface Pro 1. Attached is a screenshot, basically everything inaccessible with all windows. All content is pushed far to the right no matter how large you make the windows, it just goes further away.
      I can't find other complaints about this issue. Does anyone else even use Flash?
