First use the wall charger and see if the problem is not your battery in the phone. if the problem still exists, then uninstall and reinstall the driver for phone in the computer. if the problem still exists then you have a bad usb cable. please rate this thanks

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.


try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

How to turn on the phone spv m3100


there should be a turn on button hold down for 1-2 seconds at the top of the phone if nothing happens the battery may be dead i have an mda vario that if it is not turned on the battery won't charge its just the way they work not a fault.
I got it working by taking the battery out and cut off the small end of a normal usb lead i.e. big usb to small. strip the wires and there should be a red and black wire, posative and negative the red posative and the black negative.
attatch the red wire to the posative metal strip on your phone and the black to the negative strip on your phone, it should say on your phone by the battery or on the battery which side is posative and negative. turn on your computer and plug the usb lead in and then insert the phone battery making sure that none of the wires touch any of the other strips on your phone let your computer load and press the on button at the top of the phone for 2 secs and wait it should turn on and charge.
wait for 10 or so minutes making sure the phone is charging, then plug your charger for your phone in and at the same time remove the usb lead and wait for the battery to charge before taking the wires out of the phone.

Will not charge or turn on using USB cable.


Two things.

HTC phones will not charge from the USB port unless you have ActiveSync on an XP or Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC loaded.

Second, if the phone has been stored for a very long time, 1 year if initially charged, 1/2 year if not, the the battery self discharges to a point the USB port PC Sync software doesn't know the phone is connected. You must jump start a charge on the battery by either and HTC AC charger, a generic AC/USB charger will not work, or you can apply a +5 VDC voltage to the power terminal, marked + and - on the battery case, on the two outside terminals I believe. This 5VDC must be current limited for safety. The Red and Black lead inside a standard USB cable will supply current limited +5 volts at 100MA. Chop off a standard USB cable, their cheap and break out expose the Red and Black leads. While connected to the PC USB port, hold the Red lead to the + battery terminal and the Black to the (-), or other outside terminal, of about 30 seconds to a minute.

Now when you plug the phone to the PC with a good USB, the Amber light on the phone to indicate Charging, may not come on for a while, 5 minutes or so, but it will eventually. If it does not, jump the battery again for a longer period of time.

An AC charger for the 3125 are fairly inexpensive. $7 or so, on ebay with shipping. This may be the way to go. Consider getting one with a new battery. They are sold this way sometimes and sometimes for little more that the charger alone.

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.
you want a repair service

Motorola A1200 Problem


Easy step by step solution!

Hey guys had the same, Try this solution before buying a new battery/charging cable (it might not be the problem):

I did these steps after playing around with it for awhile and am at the stage where my phone turns on fully and says "Battery Charging" when plugged into the charger. It is now charging normally again... Finally! (I had the flashing moto logo too when charger plugged in) I believe this problem occurs because the battery is completely drained and is unable to turn on to charge bcuz the phone needs to be on to be charged, happened to me because i left it in a jacket pocket and forgot about it for weeks. Anyways...

1. You need a USB data cable for it, it should have come with the phone, if not than any USB data cable that fits the phone's charging slot should work (charge cable for the ps3 controller will work or maybe a cable from a digital camera with the same end)

2. Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable and a USB port that works. Make sure it's plugged in and leave it (even if nothing happens and the screen on the phone is still blank). Although the screen is black, the phone is still charging via your computer (it's just too low on battery to produce the light on the display screen to load up your phone).

3. This might take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes so be patient and leave it plugged in, beats buying a battery of charger with your money for something that can be solved for free.

4. At some point your computer will make the usual processing noises signalling that it is finally recognizing the phone as a usb device and shortly after your ming's screen will turn on stating that the battery is charging. Success! One of two things will happen, if you have previously installed the ming's drivers to your pc it will just recognize the phone. If you are like me and do not have the drivers installed, you may choose to do so via the cd that came with the phone or just not do it at all.

5. If you want to just charge it via the computer then congrats, your job is done, just leave it plugged in and wait until it is fully charged. If you wish to switch to your regular outlet charger please proceed to step 6.

6. At this point drivers installed or not, either safely remove device from the computer or just unplugg it. Now return your phone to your usual outlet charger making sure its connected. When plugged in you'll notice the moto logo appear (no longer flashing). After about 5 seconds that logo will disappear. At this time flip open the phone. The usual turn on sequence will play out and it will now load up with the battery charging screen similar to the screen from when it was plugged into the computer. Congratulations your phone should be back to normal now.

NOTE: This charge will take longer than your normal charging time but that's just for this time since your battery is super low it will be back to normal after that. Also if this did not work for your phone then now is the time to see if the charger/phone/battery is the problem.

So I hope this helps you out and eases your state of panic. I hope I saved you guys some money with this solution and that your mings are up and running again. I know i was pretty content when the problem was fixed. Please reply with any comments, questions or concerns you may have. Enjoy your once again working mings.

Audiovox SMT 5600 will not charge


If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.

You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.

Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.

Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.
