OK ali,
the red cross on the battery sign means that your battery is "dead".I highly consider replacing it soon, because when your battery dies there is a high chance your screen will go blank when you turn your computer on.
I have looked it up allot, and I have not find a solution to fix this without money, so i had to replace my battery.

Battery won't charge

In most things I get biofeedback telling me I have either screwed something on correctly, or that I know it's cross-threaded. I know from the feel as I make the connection.

With my UV5R+ and its charger stand, I really don't know if it's sitting in the charger stand and making contact -- unless I see the light turn solid red. That means it's charging.

I have set it in place and it slipped right in, making the light go red. And I have set it ip place, jiggled it and set it again, and have slammed it in, all without success It is of a very poor design.

That may be your problem, you have it "cross-threaded" and don't know it. Have you ever seen the battery charger show Red?

I don't know if my experience is a one-of-a-kind or if it is widespread.

Now, if you do get around the design flaw I have described and the charger does go red, your battery may be faulty. it's not charging.

While i connect the battery the red light comes but a bettry cross sign shown in the screen.....please help me out.please.........

This shows it is not charging either the connector from the power supply to your phone is faulty (which is common) or the battery in your phone has to be replaced. One other possibility the pins inside your phone (where the connector plugs in) are bent or broken but this is not common.

Most people use generic chargers and they fail prematurely quite often.

Why is there a red cross on the battery icon of galaxy tab though its fully charged?

I studied my galaxy note 10.1. when i use the original wall charger it charges well, fast an no red cross appears. when i hook it to the usb of my laptop then the red cross apears and the tab reports that it is not on battery ( look at the time on battery it does not change) the battery also remains at the same charge level that it was when i hooked it up. when i use the car charger it does the same as with the laptop. my conclusion is that when hooked to the car and/or laptop the battery does not charge, but the tablet is running of the power from the external source and not the battery. this seems to be a very clever move from samsung to preserve the battery when it cannot be charged by the device it is hooked up to.

My laptop shows red cross sign in battery and says consider replacing a battery!!what to do does it have any solution and battery life has decreased to 50 min. from 2 and half hour,i bought it just a year...

Hi there,

If the message says consider replacing the battery, I guess the battery life is about to end.

Its good to replace the battery if you have used to laptop for more that 3 years now. Normally that is the max battery life.

However, if the laptop is new and still under warranty, you need to contact your vendor for possible free replacement, since it is abnormal for the battery to wear in such a short time.

Also make sure the replacement battery is perfectly compatible to your laptop. Your vendor can guide you more.

I have replaced batteries in the past. Remove it from the laptop and get the number off of it. Then you can go and Google the number to find a reasonably priced replacement.

Hope this helps you.

Acer aspire 3050 new battey will not charge

Sometimes batteries need a full 24 hr initial charge before they will work. You would be advised not to use the M/C during this period. Also it will take several charges before the battery reaches it's optimal performance.

This could be the problem so it's worth a try.
