Question about Motorola Mobility MOTOKRZR K1 Cellular Phone

Battery won't charge

I'm having problems with the Motorola K1 phone. I just bought it and it worked ok at the start, I charged the battery and everything was working. When the battery ran out I tried to charge it, but the phone started flashing white screen periodically when I connected the charger. Any ideas why this is happening and how to get around it?

Check the contacts between phone and battery, if necessary align or clean. Are you using original Motorola charger? This solved my problem; I was trying to charge it with one of those "universal" chargers.

Hope this helps!

My MOTOKRZR K1 battery/phone will not stay charged very long.

Let ur phone completely die. Don't charge it or anything when the low battery notice comes on. After it completely dies, put it on the charger only until it says charge complete. U might have to do it a few times to get ur battery performing as it should. If you charge ur battery too often, it causes ur battery to swell (weird I know) and your battery starts resisting charge. Hope this helps!! (I used to have the same phone and the same problem. I did this, and now my mom is using the phone and has an exceptional battery time)

Damaged connector

The K1 is not an easy one to take apart compared to others. I would not recommend it. Plus once it is taken apart you lose the seal. I rarely charge my K1 using my phone. I purchased a unit for under $10 to charge my batteries on. I like to have an extra battery for my cell so I am never without service while it charges.
It will cost you more to get the piece replaced on your K1 than it would to get a seperate charger for a battery. If you need help let me know. I will help you locate a charger if needed.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone

If the phone still works, check to see if the left side of the hinge (when the phone is open and facing you) is loose. If you can wiggle the top 1/2 of the phone, the hinge is damaged, therefore damaging the flex cable that runs through it. If that is the case, replace the hinge assembly and the flex and you're good.

The K1 is no joke to take apart. Flex replacement requires full disassembly. I would recommend checking out, or to have it done professionally, less than Motorola will charge you.

Or give it a shot if you want, you need a T5 Torx and lots of patience and care.

K1 Problem Charging Battery

sounds like the battery to me. there is a chance it is the phone. Check on your warranty and see about a battery replacement first. Its much more likely.

Battery won't charge.


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.
