[Q] Stuck at hboot - volume down button busted?

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – My htc desire is just over 2 years old. Out of warranty. Have not rooted or done anything else, just running the standard software. A couple of months ago it got damp inside the pocket of my jacket. After turning it on it went to the hboot screen (the one where I can choose the options Fastboot, recovery, clear storage, simlock.) I dried the phone out and tried turning it on again. Since then, whenever I have turned on my phone, it has had about a 50% chance of going to the hboot screen. Sometimes this screen would be unresponsive (ie. pressing the volume up/down buttons didn't do anythi (HowTos)
