Re: Audiovox smt5600 blinks amber light upon plugging in...

Start with another battery. Borrow a friends or they are available on Ebay rather cheap. Or, go to your Cell Carrier and ask them to help you try another battery.

Have you tried charging it through the USB port of you computer? The phone is designed to charge from a USB port also, but computer must have ActiveSyn phone driver install and be recoginzed by the computer in order to charge using USB port.

How long have you owned your cell phone for? Also, did it act strange before it died on you? Let me know so we can get to the bottom of this. Thanks & good luck!

I had a similar problem with my SMT5600. I've found that when this happens, if I just hold the hangup key until the keypad locks, I can then unlock the phone and it will function normally. Try this to see if it helps.

Take care,

Computer won't sync with audiovox smt 5600

You must install ActiveSync software on an Win XP OS available with disk supplied with phone or on MicroSoft support page.

If you are using Win Vista OS, then download latest Mobile Center software while you phone is plugged into USB port.

Phone must be recognized by OS for phone to charge. Nice Audiovox/Microsoft desigh heh? Some times you just want to get designs by the throat and squeeze them.

Red LED light means a major problem at the charging of the battery.

You have several options to repair it:

1. Leave several hours the PDA with not battery and unplugged from the AC power adapter, then put the battery and leave charging it.

It's more likely that the red light will appears again, but leave plugged it. Sometimes will start charging and blinking with orange color after 30 minutes or so. After that, it will work normally.

2. Use other good working battery to test it.

3. If the above two steps fail, then there is a good chance that the mainboard has a problem, and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Audiovox SMT 5600 will not charge

If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.

You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.

Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.

Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.

Computer fails to recognize smt5600

you can use any USB cable, there is nothing specific about any particular brand... now the computer has to recognize the phone. You need the software/driver.
