Re: Charging problems

Simply put, they are the wrong chargers. Cheap chargers wont work on the Razrs, invest in one that is specific to the Razr and you wont have a problem. You know the phone charges since it works off the car charger, so the problem is the chargers.

My SCH-a930 won't charge. I still have battery life, and the phone works fine, but the phone won't charge. I have tried multiple wall outlets. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Please, try using another charger with the phone.
If the problem continues, get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and bring the charging port out. The charging port is at the tail end of the phone.
Clean the surface of the panel where the charging port contact the panel with a spirit and allow it to dry for 30 minute. Couple back the phone and i am sure the charging phone will work fine.

My phone won't charge

Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if the charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

My phone is not charging


If your phone is not charging, try use a similar charger to charge to see if it is charger problem, if the similar charger did not charge your phone, it means the problem is the charging port on your phone.

The charging port of your phone is bad and will need to be replace. Replace the charging port on your phone to solve the problem of your phone not charging.
Once the charging port is replaced, the not charging problem with your phone solve.

Take care.

Charging no respance

Hi, problem can be solved. When charging a phone and it does not respond,it means that either the charger or the charging port where you fix your charger in is faulty.

First you can try and use another charger to check if phone will charge. If it charges, that means the charger needs to be replaced,but if not charging,charging port will need to be replaced .

Take care.

Motorola razr2 v9m wont charge

My guess is that the charging port in your phone has gone bad. By holding it a certain way, you may be reconnecting it just enough to make the connection. Probably have a loose or broken wire inside your phones port. You may also see this is a problem if you try to hook it up to a pc.

Razr not charging -

New charger is needed - Razors are VERY particular about their type of charge - If it is a bad charger - You will see the battery indicator flashing red - and it will be empty - this is the phone saying pretty much that it cannot use this charger -

I have had ALOT of problems with razors and returned chargers - Try to scoop up an original - or take it to a location and test the charger first -

You can try to remove the battery and then put it back in - then try to charger it but i doubt that will work -

Get a new charger - TEST IT FIRST IN STORE!!!
Good Luck!
