Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

This can be an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Remove the charger from the Droid and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger., wait 5 minutes and then try to turn on the Droid.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

This is going to remove all data from the phone, but its the only option you have and it may even not work if the issue is hardware

Turn off phone
Press power and volume down at the same time and hold till you get to a menu
once there navigate ONLY with volume down
select recovery and then press volume up
wait for the dead android guy to show
then with that on the screen press volume up and power at the same time several times until it takes you to recovery
once there before you do the factory wipe you wipe the partition cache. Then factory wipe.

Tell me if this gets it going please
