My motorola atrix 2 wont turn on

try pressing power key + home key + volume up key at the same time, see if you can boot to recovery, then, once rebooted, select clear cache partition, then select wipe data/factory reset..

and better not use a charger not compatible to your phone.. hence it would burn those leads inside..

It wont turn on dont know if i is charging

If it will not turn on, even when plugged into the wall (can be done without the battery installed) it is a faulty connection/piece where the charger plugs into the phone. A good way to check would be to go to a cell phone store with those types of batteries and if one of their batteries works & your phone turns on, it is definitely the port the charger plugs into on your phone.

If it uses a separate connection for the charger, try cleaning the contacts (a toothbrush works well for this) on the phone and the charger plug. If the charger plugs into the USB port on the phone, I's suspect a bad charger.

Discharge Battery

If it is within warranty, have them replace the unit. Are you using a wall charger or a trickle-charger such as the USB Cable? The wall charger is the only way to truly charge it to full.

If you are using a USB charger or other trickle charger, after the device says it is fully charged remove it from the charger for about 2 minutes and then reconnect it. It will then charge (most of) the rest of the way.

If you don't do this, the problems gets worse and worse. After 1 day, the trickle charger may get you up to a 90% charge. After two days, 80%, etc. After a week you'll only be holding half a charge, even though the device is reporting a full charge while on the charger.

Another tip I have found is to perform a soft-reset after removing it from the charger, particularly if it has been plugged in for a long time at full charge (more than an hour or so). It seems like the device doesn't always detect that it has been unplugged and tries to **** down juice as if it were still plugged in. If you have noticed that your device gets pretty hot when the battery drains quickly, this is probably what is happening to you.

You also haven't mentioned the programs that you are using during the day. Some programs, particularly chat clients, will drain the battery in about 5 hours, though obviously you're not using anything like this while in flight mode.

One more thing. You noted that you were told that leaving it on the charger whenever possible is the thing to do. This is incorrect. The more the battery is exercised in this way, the shorter the lifespan of the battery will be. With any mobile device we're all bound to charge it every night, but once it is charged you want to take it off the charger. A battery being fully charged is just as bad as a battery being fully drained, so you want to keep it somewhere in between as much as possible. __________________

Hello, my godmom just purchased a Brand new Blackberry Curve phone.When the saler put the battery in the phone, it didn't power on and she said that the battery was not charged and that we had to charge...

Its very hard to pinpoint the problem from your few descriptions. However since the light came on it mostly means the charger should be okay. As for the phone, if the battery is really dead, it sometime takes up to 30 minutes before it shows that it is charging. SO leave it plugged in for some time to see what happenes. If it did not come on after that then the phone is bad. Just to make eveything sure, you can also try any other MINI USB charger or a simple MINI USB cord to the computer to charge the phone with as well. They all work on the Blackberry

Battery won t charge or operate phone Problem - T-Mobile MDA Compact Smartphone

Okay, I searched and searched until I found a solution that worked for me. I tried the USB thing, I got my phone to turn on once, but never to charge. Here's what I did:

(Do this at your own risk)
I zapped my battery with a 9v battery. One wire on each terminal and then held it to the MDA battery (positive to positive, negative to negative) for about three seconds. I did this about five times. (Don't let the wires touch while they are connected to the 9v battery.) I IMMEDIATELY plugged my phone into a wall charger, NOT my computer (The computer wouldn't charge my phone). As soon as it was connected to the wall charger, I turned it on. After starting up, the orange light came on, and it started charging. I was skeptical about this solution at first, but trying everything else I resolved to do this and then if it didn't work buy a new battery, but it worked and my MDA is charging as I'm typing. The original ideal came from a post on the xda-developers website by dew1989. I added the additional steps that got my battery charging again. I hope this helps!
