Question about Audiovox CDM8610VM

1 Answer

Charging problems When going to recharge my phone, my screen flashes on and off and displays garbage characters or says "user data is being restore..." then turns off and tries to turn on again. I'm not sure if the battery is shot or if the phone is shot. It won't turn on or turn off. it just restarts and displays jibberish. I just bought this phone a month ago!

SOURCE: Phone won't turn on

Just today I had the same problem with my phone. It's not the battery. You are going to have to either take it back to where you bought it from, or get a whole new phone altogether. It's a error with the phone, not the battery.

SOURCE: "User Data Is Being Restore..."

Ok - been researching this for a year or so - Apparently this is likely to happen if you delete something on the phone like contacts or messages or apps etc. and the phone doesn't have the memory available to handle the process... there is also some data that is added or moved during the shutdown process, so even if it looks ok to go, there might actually be a problem on restart. Not quite a solution, but at least an answer... It would appear from all sources that recovery from this is not possible - I have not found anyone who successfully even reflashed it with original software.

This is my 8th 8915 which is also prone to this - and it fits exactly with the pattern of destruction. I actually was avoiding deleting items via data cable b/c someone advised me that would be bad... turns out to be just the opposite! So watch your memory limits when adding contacts and apps with this phone.

My guess is that this is applicable to the entire family of pantech pn-200,212,215,300 .utstarcom 7025/7075.audiovox 8610, 8900, 8912, 8915, 8920, etc, that were similar

It seems the problem with display as well as to the charging unit. Display problem can be repaired only br replacing the display. And for your set, its not worth to get the display replaced. You can get the handset to your near service man to check whether the power charging unit works well.

Thank you

My Motorola Defy will not hold a charge. Had full charge at 8:00 Am and by 2:00 PM battery was dead. No apps running or Wi-FI on. Second day in row this has happened

The DEFY is feature-rich and can run a virtually limitless number of applications, making it useful for many tasks. Your particular usage will affect how long you can go before recharging your battery. Playing games, running applications, and surfing the Web increase the power use of the computer-like functions of the DEFY Calling and texting utilize its phone functions. Depending on your use mix, time between charges will vary. We know you want to use the device to its fullest and offer you these tips to help you get the most from your phone while going as long as possible between charges.
Things you should know about charging your battery.

New batteries are not fully charged. Plug the battery charger into your phone and an electrical outlet. Your phone might take several seconds to start charging the battery.

Tip: It may take several charging cycles for your battery to reach optimum performance.

The battery charger shipped with this device is designed specifically for Motorola mobile phones. Other chargers might take longer to charge your battery, or cause your calls to fail during charging.
Tips to extend battery life:
  • During initial set up of your MOTOBLUR account, your phone's battery may drain faster than usual due to the amount of data transferred. After the initial sync, and a few charging cycles, your battery will reach its maximum capacity.
  • We strongly recommend to keep the phone attached to the charger during the MOTOBLUR initial sync.
  • When not transmitting a lot of data or surfing the Web, set your device to connect to 2G network.
  • When setting the phone down after use, quickly press the power key to invoke a blank screen. Selecting a shorter back light duration will also help conserve power by blanking the screen when not in use.
  • Lower the display brightness.
  • Use the AC adapter to charge your phone whenever possible.
  • Toggle Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS on or off as needed. There are some apps that can help do this easily. While we do not endorse or guarantee these solutions, or provide support for them, some owners have reported success using an application called "Battery Widget " which can be downloaded from Android market.
  • Ensure applications are closed when not in use.
  • Clear all notifications from the notification bar as much as possible. Click Here to learn more about notifications.
  • We suggest charging each night so you start the day fully charged and ready to go!

Handspring Visor Username Deleted; How to Add on Device

To recreate your problem, I have setup the my Visor with no username, placed it in the cradle, and connected the cradle via USB port.

In this configuration, I do receive the same error message that you reported. Multiple issues can cause this error to be generated.

1. Place your Prism in the blue charging cradle. Confirm that the green charging LED is flashing or illuminated (below the power button on the Prism). If the green LED is not lit, then reposition the Prism until it is. If the green LED still doesn't illuminate then check the cradle and it's connectors for dirt and debris. Also check the copper connectors on the Prism for dirt and debris.

2. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle. The error message will appear. Press OK to clear the error display. If nothing happens when you press the grey button you need to check the copper connectors in the blue cradle and the bottom edge of the Prism for dirt and debris.

3. Check the upper right hand corner of the Prism display for the HotSync application. If any characters appear on the top line, opposite the HotSync header, then that is your username. If no characters are present, then there is no username in the PDA.

Regardless of whether there is a username in the Prism, the HotSync should still be possible. Once you successfully connect the cradle to the USB port and successfully connect to the desktop computer, a popup window will ask you to Create or Select the HotSync User.

Do you receive this popup window on the PC?

If not, your setup or connection probably has an issue.

4. Look at the Prism HotSync screen. Underneath the HotSync icon in the center of the display is a Drop Down selection. The options are
a. Direct USB/Serial
b. IR to a PC/Handheld

Since you are using the cradle, you should select option a.

Once you have confirmed this setup, you need to confirm the desktop computer setup.

5. Be sure to start the HotSync Manager Application on the desktop computer.

6. Left Click on the desktop computer HotSync Icon in the system tray, and confirm that Local USB has a checkmark beside it.

7. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle again. If the HotSync popup still does not appear on the desktop computer, left click on the HotSync icon and uncheck Local, Modem Network and Infrared and then depress the HotSync Button again.

There is a hidden method in the Prism for deleting the user name.
  • Open the Memo application on your Prism.
  • Tap New.
  • Enter the ShortCut character.
  • Enter a period '.'
  • Enter the number 5.
Whether you entered the shortcut character, period and 5 correctly or not, the characters you've entered will disappear and the memo pad will remain blank. To see if you succeeded:
  1. Depress the Grey HotSync button on the cradle
  2. Your user name appears in the upper right corner of the screen: if it's blank, then your user name has been deleted. The next time you HotSync with this device, you will be asked to create a new user name.
Note: Creating a new User name, will not affect the data stored in the Prism, other than initializing the user name.

There is a freeware application to Change the user name on the Prism, but you would need to HotSync to the desktop or beam the application from another Palm PDA to install it.
