hold the power button for 15 seconds> if that doesnt work take the batter out for 1 minute, then that will rebot you phone. it will turn on by itself so just let it sit until its finished.

had the same problem not once but 4 times. its something to do with the phone itself. you got to call customer service and talk to the multi device department so they can send you a new phone. there is no way to fix it your phone is fried. if you put a new battery in the phone it will over heat it and it still wont work.... believe me i tried everything when i had my problems

pulling the battery is a great quick fix, but mine powers down on it's own all the time. Have you reloaded the firmware? Mine worked great after the first time I did this, but after a month or so I have the same problem again. The store said to reload the SW again, but I'm pretty sure there is a problem with the 8530 in general.
