I have  never had any luck running my 770 without a battery in it.  My assumption was that the battery closed some circuit that allowed the device to power up.

I have experienced problems similar to those described by the OP.  For me it hass never mattered whether the battery was charged or not.  Just sometimes, and apparently without reason, the device will be unable to be turned on.  To fix this, I have to take out the battery for a few seconds, replace it, and then power on the device.  Usually, it will give the white screen, then go out.  Then I hit the power button again and all is right again.

It is definitely strange behavior that is a minor annoyance except in those times where I don't have my charger along.  Then it's useless until I can get back to one.

hope that helps in some way.
