Question about HTC Hero Smartphone

Why does my phone loose battery power so quickly?

My phone has about 30 minutes of call time on it before it completely dies; it doesn't even give me a beep to warn me that my battery is low - it just shuts off. Do I need a new battery?

Android phones usually have a lot of junk running in the background. HTC is no exception. You can go into your settings, applications, and kill off some of the ones you don't want running. Some of them you can uninstall too. Check your other settings for the display to make sure it is shutting off after a short time. This should help some, but you should have longer battery life than a 1/2 hour. Look into a "new" battery or an extended battery. This is a longer life battery you can get on ebay or other sites. Make sure you get one that comes with a new back cover to fit over the larger battery. If none of this helps, you might have an issue with the phone & I would consider checking with your carrier for a replacement.

Phone is locked

I took the battery off completely and waited about 5 minutes, then replaced it. Worked fine after that. If that doesn't work, try googling the makers and see if they've got any quick fixes for you.

Engine looses power after 30-45 minutes.

When it starts to die just try slackening the fuel filler cap, if it picks up again it is a tank breather issue, if the breather is in the cap change it.

It will crank up and run for about 20 or 30 minutes then it will die and it will not start back up for 30-45 minutes. It has plenty of battery power and sounds like it wants to start but it just...

This sounds like a fuel pump issue. Check the fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs after it dies. If fuel pressure is low then you will need to replace the fuel pump. Feel free to respond after these items are checked. Thanks

Sir, My nokia 1202 suddenly it was in off mode. When i try to switch it on it does not on. I tried it many times but it does not on. What might be the problem

Take the battery out for 30 seconds then put it back and in and try and power it up. If it doesn't power up, try plugging the charger in and see if that works. If that doesn't work then there is something blocking the power button from completing the circuit. If that's the case then it may need repaired or replaced.

Dirt devil doesn[t hold charge

Try running the battery all the way down by letting the vacume run in a corner or another room and even when it stops leave it on for a hour to drain the battery. Then shut the switch off and try charging the battery. Make sure the charger is putting out enough volts by looking at the rated output of the charger and while it is plugged in check it with a volt meter. If it does not hold a charge and the charger is putting out the right voltage you need to purchase a new battery for the vacume

LG Dare quickly dying even after a long time charging.


The cells of the battery of your phone is very low that it can no longer hold charge.

All you need to do is to get a brand new battery for replacement.

Please charge the new battery with your phone to indicate the battery is full before you start using it.

This will help in a long way to keep your battery life span last long.

Take care.

Uniden Power Max 5 Battery problem

Your phones have the charger built into them and that is what has gone bad. After a while the dealt-V sensing unit dies and the phone overcharges the battery. You will notice your batteries heat up when charged then your delta-V sensing circuit is probably shot.

Personal Note: I think home phone manufacturers are using old non-lipo technology because it has these faults and you will have to get a new phone after some time. Also.... Why aren't home phones half as cool as cell phones??? Hmmmm.... Yeah I want my home phone to get, wifi, contact sync, usb connection, color screen, multi-ring, infinate contact storage, calendar, timer, and all the other bs in a cell phone. At least contact sync through USB, come on. Or even a shared phonebook for all phones right.
