It is a problem but I haven't heard of it going out after 3 hours and backup batteries are on back order right now.

In the meantime:

  • Make sure the GPS is turned off when not in use.
  • If you are not in a hot spot or wireless network area, turn your wifi signal off.
  • If you are not using Bluetooth at the time, turn that off as well.
Like most multi band phones, the more bands or signals that are on, the more battery life is drained.

I know there is an over the air upgrade going on right now that may correct some software issues with it.

Battery Issue


Firstly i doubt that your phone battery is damaged. To check this please go to your nearest mobile Service center & check for battery life. If it is damaged then you have to replace the battery to new one. If your phone is within the warranty period, your battery replacement will be done free of cost Else you have to bare the cost. Ther is also a possibilty of your phone chager to get damaged. Please check for the same with other compactible phone.

I have an htc ozone, what is the proper way to charge it for maximum battery life? seems to drain out shortly after an all night full charge. Thanks.


I just got my Ozone a few days ago. What you should always do with an electronic device is charge it fully before turning it on. Then using it until it dies completely with no battery. Then fully charge it again for maximum battery life.

You can go to Start, Settings, More, Power, Power Management. Change the different things to make it save on power. Also a big help is Start, System tools, Task Manager and delete everything that is being used. That just turns it off in the background, it doesn't delete the program.

Fully charged mobile battery goes dry within few hours(3 hours)


If it is 8 Mths. old, it should be under warranty.Have the providwer fix the issue.

you can try Kaiser Tweaks:

***Copied from this link:
http://www.htcwiki.com/thread/935379/Battery+Life

which will change the settings in the registry automatically:

These WILL work, and WILL improve your performance!

1. HKLM\Comm\AsyncMac1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

2. HKLMComm\Irsir1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

3. HKLM\Comm\PPTP1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

4. HKLM\Comm\L2TP1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

To make these registry changes, I used CeRegEditor. Works from the computer and connects to the phone/PPC while synched. I have noticed an improvement in battery life. Should work with WM5 and WM6.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


So many issues here so lets take one by one.

Phone not charging or goes off before the recommended time means your battery is bad and needs a replacement. Batteries are not serviceable and hence cannot be repaired or fixed. You just have to change it.

PC not recognising USB port is due to an issue with the driver the PC needs to communicate with your phone.

Get the right driver and PC Suite to enable your PC recognize your Phone through the USB

Battery shows fully charged, stays on for 3 minutes and freezes.


I've had this happen. Try a soft reset, if that doesn't fix it - try a hard reset. If it still does this, you will need to replace the battery. It may either be a problem with the battery itself or the power regulation circuit that is built into the battery. Either way, replace the battery and it should fix it. Word of warning though, some aftermarket chargers actually reverse-charge the battery - I had a USB charge/data cradle that did this and I still have short-lived battery life on my new E2 battery if I use that cradle. I just stopped using it because it kills my E2.

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


Hi

I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge.
I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....

When you take out your battery wih out shutting down it erases everything but only for about an hour everything does come back it does not erase it forever! Just to let everyone know! Of course if you have an option besides taking out the battery then use that but waiting for it to die is just silly and would take forever!
