Question about Motorola Mobility W315 Cellular Phone

My phone won't turn on/charge?

My motorola w315 was dead over the weekend because i left my charger at work. now that i've plugged it in though, it won't turn on. instead of saying battery charging on the external display like it usually does, it just lights up, then goes out, then lights up again, etc. when i open the phone the screen just displays the motorola powering on logo. i tried taking out the battery and putting it back in, but it's still doing the same thing. i've had it plugged in for over an hour now and it still won't turn on. (it would usually be able to turn on immediately when i plugged it in.) i tried holding down the power button for a while too, but that didn't do anything. (the phone is only a few months old and serviced through alltel, which unfortunately doesn't have a store here in chicago where i could take it to. i usually charge it every other night, and don't make many calls on it, but it goes dead quickly because i'm always semi-roaming...)

Re: my phone won't turn on/charge?

My husband's w315 is doing the same. This phone is a replacement sent to us because the original w315 I purchased for him had a problem with the screen. (It went blue and never displayed another thing!) When we rec'd this replacement, it worked fine until we had to charge it. They don't send a new battery with the replacements, you have to use the one out of your original phone. Soooooooo, back to the battery/charging problem. We have been to our local Cellular South store, and been given 3 new batteries & 1 new charger. Guess what.......the problem is still there!!!! We have now been instructed to file a warranty claim on this replacement w315 that we rec'd to replace our original w315!!!!!! I've gone to Motorola's web-site for help, but help I did not find. I am! Personally speaking, I'm not a fan of the w315.

Motorola cellular w376g, battery won't charge

If possible test with another charger like a car charger if you have one
also try removing the battery plug in the charger and put the battery back in (don't touch the contacts/gold pins)

if it works with other chargers then the charger is bad

if it doesn't work with other chargers charging port/battery/phone is bad

My motorola Blur won't charge, I've tried other chargers and nothing, it will catch a charge for a second and then nothing, now my phone is dead

My Motorola Blur would not charge kept saying Connect Charger. I tried various power connecters including the Original one that came with the phone and the USB to no avail. This morning I took the phone apart and clean it and still would not recognize the charger.

Fix: I lifted up the connector where the charger plugs into on the actual phone and now it is making contact and appears to now be charging my phone.

I've turned off my motorola razr phone and i plug in charger. it shows that it charging but never says charing complete. i have left it for 1 day oevernight to charge and never says charge complete.

This is a sign of a battery nearly dead (or dead already). Consider byuing a new one and everything will be fine, moreover the standbytime will improve significantly.

My cell phone died and now it wont charge!!!! :'(

It won't turn on because battery is too low. Another benefit of lithium ion batteries. When they are depleted, the internal controller / charge circuitry on battery disables it.

You didn't mention what kind of phone other than Motorola. If it has a USB connector to charge through, make sure that you are using a motorola approved charger. There is a way to make the USB connectors (charger side) indicate a particular class and rating. If this doesn't match what the phone expects, then you will likely get a Cannot Charge message or similar.

That being said, this usually only happens with AC wall chargers. I have yet to see it happen with a vehicle charger, though I don't rule it out.

Motorola W315

(If you are charging you phone inside your house) First make sure you have power to the receptacle you are using. test this by plugging in a lamp or radio into the receptacle you will be using.

I own the same phone and I have found that the phone has a small rubber cover that goes over the charging port. It's hinged but I found that it has to be removed in order to charge it because the charger can't connect securely with the rubber cover on the phone.

(If your are using a mobile charger) I have observed that my phone has a short in the mobile charger also and changes the ring tone after I charge it. My phone rings 1/2 of the time and I have found that this is a fault of the mobile phone charger. It charges the phone w/o any problem but the connection from the mobile charger is loose. This shorts out something inside the phone and changes my ring tone automatically.
