Phone not used for a while-please give me advice on battery issues

Do you know how I can test a cell phone battery to see if it is stuffed or not? I have been given a spv c500 that was working when I was given it a few months ago ? but I didn?t have a charger for it so it went flat. Its been sitting flat for a while and im wondering if its stuffed the battery? I bought a charger for it but it doesn?t light up or do anything. Would a cell phone work if the battery is stuffed but the phone was connected to the mains? Not sure if a reset will fix.

Sometimes if the battery has gone well below it's re charge state, it won't even work when plugged in until it has got some charge to it.

Please test the voltage at the battery terminals of the phone with the battery removed. If voltage is present the battery must have developed reverse polarity and will not charge as a cell in blocked.
so replace battery but if there is no voltage the adapter is faulty.

I am not able to charge my cell phone HTC P3452


If you are not able to charge your cellphone, there are several factors why:
  1. your charger connector is defective
  2. your charger terminal is defective
  3. your battery is defective
To solve this, you can check your charger connector with multitester, if it's working or not. If you test it and there's a movement, then the charger is OK. Next, check the charger terminal, using multitester. If there's a movement, then it's OK. and you'll know that the problem is on the battery.

When i turn on my phone it turns back after awhile

Start with replacing the battery.

Your cell phone store might have a spare battery that you can use to test.

Battery meter, no - If you have really LG KS20  there is known this battery issue, most probably caused by the LG battery driver contained in the ROM...
As I described many times here:
...this can be solved, but is not so easy if you are not experienced with flashing new ROM - already described here:

Good luck

Dropped Shocked Phone

Thats no shock...Thats the sign of a cracked LCD. To test this, remove and insert the battery and wait for 5 minutes. Then connect your phone to the comupter. Make sure you have Blackbrry Desktop installed on the computer. If your phone is recognized by the computer and you can for example back up your phone, then this means that your phone is fine and you just need a new LCD

Software problem

try to put charger to phone and see whether it shows charging. if it shows charging than you can power on after a while. are if you have removed battery without switching off the phone to change sim card, than most probably your phone's software got crashed and you need to visit sony ericsson service point.

Tmobile dash Battery or sim?

I tried the new battery and thought it worked and posted it to this site...and, after about 30 hours the same thing happened. It's either the phone or the software, but, since the problem began 15 months after I bought the phone, I tend to think it's the phone, not the battery or the software. I'm going to try to contact HTC since T-Mobile is useless.
