Well this is not the recomended way,but if you use a tooth pick,nothing metalic, and where the power button was,stick the tooth pick in and press the little switch.youll feel it click.

SOURCE: Doesn't turn on!!

I have the exact same problem with my E815 Motorola...only had a month or two, forgot to charge and battery went dead. Now moto screen comes on for about a second and dead? Try to get to boot loader, same thing...dead.....Bob

SOURCE: Motorola E815 - Battery Charger

The E815 has a very poor design on the charger port. The cleaning that Solution #1 referred to is that Verizon cleans the contacts of both the phone and the charger using rubbing alcohol on a toothbrush to clean both the phone contacts and the charger contacts. I have to do this once a week or so to keep my phone charging. The rubbing alcohol dries quickly and will not harm the phone. Motorola has changed the charging ports on the newer phones because they recognize that they have a problem with this design. I have also turned in my phone to Verizon (twice) for a replacement. If you replace the phone be careful to record ALL your contacts because when Verizon transfers your contacts from the old to the new phone the speed dial numbers all get messed up because they start their numbering differently than you had it. I am still repairing my speed dial numbers. Hope this helps.

You can try to restore the Motorola Photon 4G MB855 like this:

  4. Lastly, select Reset Phone.
motorola-photon-4g-mb855-hard-reset-300x279.jpgFor those that are unable to use the Android system, mainly because the phone refuses to boot normally, you can try to restore the MB855 using the recovery menu. Here's how it's done:
  1. Turn off your phone and then press and hold the Volume Down Button.
  2. While holding the Volume Down button pressed, tap on the Power Button and the Fastboot menu of the Android system should appear on the screen. This is the point where you should release all buttons.
  3. Use the Volume Down key to navigate through options and when you see "Android Recovery", chose it by pressing the Volume Up button.
  4. Once the triangle sign appears, press both the Volume Up and Down keys, at the same time.
  5. In the newly appeared menu, navigate using the Volume buttons to Wipe Data / Factory Reset, and select this option by pressing on Power.
  6. Confirm your option by selecting Yes, once again with the Power button.
  7. Wait for the process to complete and reboot the phone.

My 7 inch Samsung galaxy tablet will not come on.


have you tried turning off tablet with charger plugged in and letting it charge up. You should see a battery symbol come onto the screen with a pulsing level indicating the battery is being charged. hold in power till unit turns off then plug in charger cable into tablet and switch on charger at power point . Do not try and push power switch to power up tablet see if screen indicates charging is occurring. I have experienced this exact problem on a samsung tablet !

The screen on my phone went completely black and will no longer turn on from what iv tried i cant hear or seen anything and there is no sighn of water damage what do i do?


I will try and keep this short. I have a Motorola Razr (puchased in the USA..... this will make sense later) and I lend it to my brother when he visits me from Canada. (Roaming charges for Canadians using their phone in the US is insane) He too has a Motarola phone that he brought with him. The Charger that he brought with him was for a Canadian phone. Apparently, you cannot use a charge for a Canadian phone, on a USA contracted phone..... I'm not sure why, but it is the case. He attempted to charge my USA phone with his Canadian Charger and the screen went blank. The phone was still on and could even receive calls. Even when the calls came in, the screen still remained blank. I won't bore you with any more details.
Here is how I fixed it:
- Unplug phone from Canadian Charger
- Take the battery out of the phone.
- Plug in USA built charger (without the battery in the phone)
- The phone attempt to charge
- Screen should turn on. Wait till screen indicates (Cannot charge battery)
- Plug battery in.
- Hold down power button to turn on the phone.
- Phone should be in working order.

I don't claim to be an expert. This may only apply to my particular situation. Hope it helps if you happen to use the incorrect charger. Take care.

Moto Q Sprint Phone wont turn on


3 ways to solve it:

1.) Take out and put battery back in.

2.) Plug into a wall or car charger but not a PC USB charger. This does not work with PC USB connection for some reason.

3.) Hold red on/off button to force a reset.

4.) The big battery icon should appear on screen.

5.) Let charge until mostly or fully charged.

7.) Turn on phone. It should boot.

2 - Hard Reset

To perform the hard reset, hold down the center select button in the middle of the D-pad/joypad (the raised silver one.) Then, continuing to hold it for at least five seconds, press the power button to allow the device to power up. Continue to hold the select button until you get a screen which asks if you want to perform the master reset. Let go of the select button, and press the appropriate soft action key to respond yes.
REMEMBER! A hard reset erases ALL of your data!!! This is why the Backup is so important.

You could get Sprite Backup. In addition, install it to your Storage Card and save your backups there as well. That way you can restore on the road without a PC.

3 - Update your phone's firmware

COULD BE THE PHONE BUT MOST LIKELY ITS THE CHARGER, IF ITS AFTERMARKET GET RID OF IT AND BUY OEM, TRY AND TEST IT OUT WOULD A FREINDS MOTOROLA CHARGER SINCE THEY'RE MOSTLY THE SAME CHARGERS AND SEE IF YOU STILL GET THE MESSAGE.

Charging problem!!! PLEASE READ!


as i think that charger was not compatible to your phone so when you tried charging it the battery is dead bcoz of excess voltage than it normally bears with the compatible charger of ur phone ...
so this excess voltage has made the battery to be short circuited due to this may be the charging ic or the capacitor is gone ...
so i suggest you to take the cell to the near by technician and just have a check...

the only problem with all motorola phones is that it only charges with the charger with the desired voltage ... if the voltage of the charger is low then it will not show any response(i mean it will not charge but it will not cause any thing to battery as it is of less voltage than the desired voltage )
so i think the charger you buyed provides more than the desired voltage so the battery is dead .....
