    Extreme heat on scanner/on/off switch

    I was reading a website with the phone turned sideways when suddenly I dropped the phone because I felt a burning sensation on my left ring finger.
    Turned out that the finger was on the scanner/on/off switch but not moving.

    The switch had to be 110F+.
    No other part of the phone was hot.

    Anyone ever have the same issue?

    My batter temp registers ~ 110f at times. But mostly I feel the heat in the lower part of the phone. The battery is near the top. Which is near the scanner. You might want to get a temp app to see what the battery registers.

    Shortly after starting this thread, the phone locked up. I pulled the battery to reset and so far there is no heat or malfunction in the phone at all.

    I've experienced this twice now since getting the gingerbread update, less than 2 weeks ago.

    Restarting the phone seems to solve it (not removing the battery as the OP indicated).

    odd and concerning.

    Mine Too

    The scanner/on/off button on my Atrix has also started heating up several week ago. I also noticed the last 4 or 5 days that the phone will turn off by itself once in a while. This morning I discovered it was off and could not get it to turn back on. The only remedy was to remove the battery for about 20 minutes. When I re-installed it I could then turn the phone on. It has done the same thing two more times today. I am afraid something is about to fail big time.

    I noticed this mainly with custom Tom's where the scanner is enabled for navigating. I disable it to stop the overheat
