    Original battery was ok until recently. The new battery is worst than the old battery. Why?

    I have exactly the same problem. My V3 is now 3 years old and no longer holds much of a charge. I bought a basic Nokia in Bankok in July costing only £14 and this performs far better! Reception too has deteriorated dramatically so I bought a new battery online (non-original brand). No better so I complained to the battery provider and was sent a replacement. This was still no better so I visited Carphone Warehouse today and was told that it probably wasn't a battery problem. They advised that phones are not designed to last much more than a year!! I could check it in for repair but that wouldn't be cost-effective. Try downloading any available configuration updates they suggested. I connected my V3 to the internet via the supplied phone/USB cable, opened 'Motorola mobile phone tools' and found 3 updates that I have have now installed. I'll see if this has made a difference over Christmas and if so I'll let you know. Failing this it's a new phone for me I believe. Fingers crossed.......

That sounds like typical battery life for that phone.  When I owned one that's what I got on the weekends when my call volume was lower.

    Batteries do wear out over time and some manufacturers don't have as good a quality as others. See Sony batteries.

Garmin 260 now failing to charge and shuts itself down


If the unit is only a year old? then I would suspect that the charger has a problem that has damaged your battery. Do you use an external power continuously?

Try a different charger or if you have a meter make sure the charger is putting out close to the specs on it. Try using the usb cable to charge it.

The low battery and shutting off are typical of a battery that won't/can't hold a charge. That is typical after 2-3 years plus but not one year. It can also be indicitive of the charging circuit needing to be reset. The problem is it needs to be started and run long enough for it to recognize the reset command. To do this, hold your finger on the bottom right corner of the screen while powering the unit, until it asks if you want to reset it. That might get you running.

While I would be suprised at the battery going out within a year or so it is not unheard of. You may have to replace the internal battery pack. The unit is new enough your only source is probablly going to be Garmin. They might replace the battery under warrenty or out (if you talk nice).

Out of range, buttons don't respond, battery won't hold charge


when you have a problem with anything under warranty, you take it back for new units or a refund and anything under 12 months old is under warranty
if you have lost the receipts get a copy of your bank statements as that shows where it was bought , how much it cost and when
That is a legal document to trigger a warranty action or refund

Well it sounds like a combo of both. Definitly get the battery replaced again. The phone itself probably needs new software. take it your service provider's corp store to get the software updated.

Battery won't charge.


hello,

normally many cell phones requires 6-10hrs for its batter to fully charge up. also i have seen it where battery can be brand new but doesn't have enough juice to hold the charge.
now as far as red light on charger, remember even if you have 99% charged batter and you plug in the charger it will show you red light on phone/cradle.

FYI- all brand new phones are covered with 30 days of warranty replacement with new phone. after 30 days it covers upto 1 year from the date of purchase with refurbished phones.

In your case i think it is just the battery, try having your provider replacing new battery if no luck again then my suggestion will be to replace your phone with new battery with in 30 days.

TY
