Phone will not take charge

Low battery message continues even after hours on a charger... Have tried
car charger and home charger.... Message does not change when different battery is used... I assume there is a problem with the Pearl.
What's your experience with this low battery message.. I cannot use the phone ...not enough power... to use radio.

    I have the same issue. Thinking battery went bad, got new from TMobile Store. Now that new battery is dying, phone will not charge or register as charging. I have tried all of my chargers, car, wall, and USB. Ugh....I really like the phone overall, but it may be time for a new one. Am I the only one who thinks these phones may have a "self destruct mode" that kills off the phone so you have to buy a new one? lol.

Check your phone plug input, it might be the connector on the phone itself. I had this happen to my pearl, and verified the phone charge connector did not have all 4 gold wires anymore (only 3 gold wires), thus no charging can occur or even sync.

Says I have a low battery. I think I am missing the battery and holder located on the side. What is the battery I am missing?


The battery is inside the satnav. If you get a message saying that your battery is low you should plug in the car charger for 4 hours, or a mains charger for 4 hours or connect it to your computer for 8 hours to charge it.

If it fails to charge by any of these methods the battery may be worn out and unable to take a charge. If this is the case you need to return it to garmin to have the battery replaced.

Bad contact charger


The charging port is bad, so you have to take it to a technician or get a universal or desktop charger to charge you battery.

I have a Panasonic KX-TG6051CM


I had the same problem, and it seems that the battery charging circuit in the handset had locked up, constantly charging the battery until it overheated. I was able to reset the circuit in my handset by completely draining the battery. Here is the procedure:

1. Remove the handset from the charging cradle, and leave it on for a few days until the battery runs out, and the handset finally turns off. At his point, the battery will be very low, BUT NOT COMPLETELY DRAINED.

2. Next, you must manually drain the charge remaining in the battery by shorting out the two contacts on it. Shorting won't damage the battery, since it is holding very little charge at this point. An easy way to physically do this is to remove the battery, and place a piece of thin wire across the the two contacts of the HANDSET. I am referring to the contacts inside the handset that connect to the battery, NOT the contacts on the bottom outside that connect the handset to the charging cradle. Next, put the battery back in, sandwiching the wire between the battery's contacts and those inside the handset. This will hold the wire in place. DO NOT PUT THE HANDSET BACK INTO THE CHARGER, WITH THE BATTERY SHORTED OUT.

3. Wait about 30 minutes for the battery to completely die. Remove the jumper wire, and but the handset back into the charger.

4. If the battery was fully discharged , you will get a message on the handset telling you that you should let it will charge for 7 hours. If you do not get this message, then either the battery was not fully discharged, or your problem is different from mine. Try the procedure again in Step 3 for another 30 minutes to discharge the battery some more.

5. If you get the "Wait for 7 hours to charge" message on the handset, then leave it in the charging cradle for the 7 hours requested. After that, it should work fine.

Let me know how you make out.

Phone dies quickly after charging


It would be helpful to know just how quickly the battery is going flat, and I'm assuming there's no history of the phone having been damaged, but... Try swapping the battery for one from a friend's phone. If that cures the problem, you need to buy a new battery (they don't last forever). Otherwise, try charging the battery fully in a friend's phone using their charger, then see how long it lasts. If this lasts much longer, the problem is that the phone/charger combination isn't charging the battery properly. Mix and match chargers and handsets (mark which are yours before you start, or you will get mixed up) to identify where the problem lies. If the battery isn't old and tired, and the phone is charging it properly, then the problem must be that the phone is drawing excessive current. This could be because you've got it set up to do some power-hungry thing (backlight continuously on, playing MP3s or FM, promiscuously Bluetoothing or IR communicating, etc). Shut down all the functions you don't actually need at the time and see if that makes any different. Once you've eliminated all those, you're left with the liklihood that the phone has a fault which is making it draw excess current. Not good news, but at least you've eliminated all the other possibilities. A.
