K-jam wont charge

My phone decides to charge the battery, only when it feels like. I have bought 2 new batteries to make sure that it was not a battery problem. Even with the new batteries, it only charges them when it feels like. Please i need a solution to this.

Re: K-jam wont charge

Reformat it! 1. Keep pressing Comm manager and Voice Command button 2. While they are pressed, push in on the soft reset button (reset hole) once 3. Keep holding the Comm Manager and Voice Command buttons until there is a screen asking you if you want to clear all data. 4. To commit, press the green send key.

My i-mate does not start


you just made a "HimaClearJumpCode.exe" run on ur device(this file exists in ur upgrade folder),and now you are stuck in the bootloader mode

1-hard reset ur device(it wont boot,off course)...

2-plug it in the usb port,u should see that ur system has found a new hardware(if it doesn't,change the USB port)

3-now run the himaupgradeUt.exe.

If this does not work,

1-take the battery off device

2-leave ur device for 12hours without battery,so that backup battery drains...

3-put back the battery,recharge and enter the OS(this option wont work if u have erased the ROM)

4-rerun the upgrade...

The battery might be too low to be charged by the charger,if that is the case;

1) Remove the battery from the phone!
2) Take 3 fresh AAA batteries in series (total 3 x 1.5V = 4.5V)
3) Connect the (+) wire to (+) on the battery
4) Connect the (-) wire to (-) on the battery
5) Hold this in place for 60 seconds.
6) Put the battery in your phone
7) Switch on phone and start charging (via USB)

My phone wont charge.... i have bought a new battery, charged it for 24 hours, and it still wont charge. even when it does charge it wont keep the charge for more than a day. why wont it charge. plzzzz...

It could be the charger itself that has the issue. If you have another charger try that. If you have done this and it still won't hold a charge I would contact your service provider they will try to trouble shoot issue but more than likely will get you to send phone in through warranty if your still eligible. If not eligible for warranty and don't have insurance ask about upgrade options. Hope this helped.

K-jam wont charge

The old battery can be made to work by using Jeff-frankenstien USB-cut method.
Just search for the method on the internet, and do the same.
See if it helps to recover your old battery.

Palm treo 700 wx won't charge

Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.

May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!

This IPAQ will not support 3rd party battery manufacturers. Ensure you are using an original HP battery. You usually can use the battery one time--but when the charge runs out, so does your luck.

Most of the time you will get an on-screen warning that the battery will not be able to charge when you use a 3rd party battery. If you are using an original, you might need a new battery--they do wear out after time--too-old batteries no longer hold a charge.

Discharging fast

Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall

IMate JAM battery drained off

When I bought my Imate I had the same problem. Put the charger on it and leave it for an hour or so and check the results. Just so the backup battery gains charge.
