Question about Motorola Mobility A1200

Motorola A1200 cell phone battery will not charge with AC chargers

My son just bought a new A1200 through Amazon. Its battery will not charge with the AC charger. We even bought another AC charger and it did not work. But it charges when we hook it up to the PC through the USB port and the software that came with it, Motorola Phone Tools. I have measured the voltage from the two chargers, and I get 5 volts on the outer two contacts. The battery is rated at 3.7 volts I believe. Does this make sense? Anyway, we are going to return it if we cannot resolve this issue.

I know about this problem.The phone features are OK. However, the battery is a joke. You will need recharge it every night.
J&R includes a (paid) bulk adapter to fit American standards :
a minimum movement of the adapter and the charger will not work while you believe that your phone is getting power ! The bulk adapter is useless since you can simply remove the European plug and use the two pin plug that originally comes with the charger. The Motorola Phone Tools is another joke: simply does not recognize the cell !

Charging volts always bit higher then battery rated voltages because charging circuit has to regulate the charging volts. so 5 volt charger is fine to recharge 3.7 volts battery of your phone.

    Regarding phone doesn't charge battery by charger, its a problem with phone unit because charger itself gives you 5 volts and you measured it.

HI,

If your phone is still under warranty the best solution is to get it replaced.The problem is actually with the port of the charger.I mean the hole in which you plug in your charger isn't working properly.Where as your USB port is different and works properly so it charges the battery.So you will have to get this repaired.

Hi when i charge my motorola 1200a, I see on and off of screen, my battery is new.what I can to do?


Jaffarraja-

Not sure I understand. Are you saying your MotoMing a1200 is rebooting with the new battery or what?

Have you tried charging it overnight with the phone off? If the battery is dead and you charge it with powered on it might power up then power off. Best to charge powered down if battery is fully depleted.

Invalid battery..


There is too much going on here. For starters, you should only be using Motorola accessories IE batteries, chargers, screen protectors. Now that you have done this, you have actually confused the phone, it is a "smart phone" and because of this, it is able to identify the different battery/charger. You have to send this to Motorola of for a quick fix or buy a new phone.

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.

I have the same problem, but then I realized that the battery only charges through the battery desk charger that comes with the phone. Use that, if you have one.
