THANK YOU !!!

I followed the steps as described on the 2nd post and it worked !

I think it's 2.2.4 that caused the issue, so I'll try 2.2.3 and eventually go back to 2.1.1 if serious issues follow (i.e: Veer shut downs, won't turn on, sound issues ... the list is long, so not so much chances I'll stick with 2.2.3 ^^)

Anyway, this community is so awesome that I like being on webOS just to deal with you people

One trick I've read about, but not used...

Download a different Doctor - one for another model. Connect the Veer to your computer and start the off-model Doctor. If it connects and verifies the wrong device, it can sometimes "wake up" a stuck phone...

No Doctoring goes on and you don't loose data / apps.

You may also want to try the more drastic "Hard Reset" which isn't good for the phone, but often times works. Hold down the Power button and toggle the Ringer / Silence switch off and on 3 times.

Yesterday morning, my wife's Veer would not turn on. She said that the battery was at 75% the night before so she did not put it on the touchstone. After reading this thread and trying everything but the hard reset option, I just opted to let the Veer sit on the charger overnight last night.

Well low and behold, I took it off the charger this morning and tried it - no luck. Then I put it back on the touchstone and BAM! the HP logo appeared. It did a restart and the low battery warning came on. It said it had 7% battery. I noticed that the touchstone was not really charging it, so I used the magnetic charging cable and bingo.

All I can say is that for some reason the touchstone doesn't seem to work so well on it. My older daughter has a Veer too and hers doesn't charge well on the stone. So hopefully we won't have this problem again if its just a matter of using the magnetic cable charger. All four of us in my family have some version of a WebOS phone and we would prefer to stick with them.

Just double check each part of the Touchstone to make sure it works OK. I suspect it's either your USB cable or the wall outlet connector that might be faulty.

You can still get a replacement Touchstone for $8 incl. shipping from Amazon

The Touchstone works fine on my Pre 2 and my younger daughter's Pre Plus. Its "touch" and go for my wife's and older daughter's Veers.

And we have three Touchstones. All the same.

Had the same just on xmas-day:
- No chance to boot on TS
- No chance to rewake through ringer switch
- No chance to boot through magnetic connector
- No chance to rewake with volume-up and pc connection

Carefully opening the back without breaking the sticker and removing the battery for some minutes solved it... charging up now! Yeeeeha, I have my Veer back!!!! (maybe the little fella was jealous because of the Pre3 I recently bought )

Many thanks somline!

I would have done all these and if none worked give it a break overnight.
Taking out the battery is delicate surgery.
