Help HTC Hero takes too long on HTC screen and touchscreen and other stuff not working.


Dec 20, 2011
Ok. First of all this happened to me three times already and it "fixed itself" after a full drain/recharge this is the fourth and for some reason nothing is working to fix it.
It happens when my phone crashes and I have to take the battery out, when I put the battery back on and turn it on again this is what happens:
-when booting the HTC logo shows for 5-20 min until the cm7 bootscreen shows.
-touchscreen is not working
-calling/music/contacts is not working(although sms works fine)
-the orientation sensor got totally broken the first time it happened, its still not working even when the rest worked.
I tried flashing several roms, draining the battery and recharging it, even restarting it multiple times till the battery drains.|

Can anyone please help me?? I'm 16 and I don't have the cash to have it fixed or buy a new phone.
and thanks in advance for those who will reply.
