Iphone won't charge if on

This old phone doesn't recognize a charger if it is on. if the phone dies completely, then it will display the red bar in an empty battery with a lightning bolt below when i plug in power. the phone charges to about 3%, when the phone reboots, then it stops charging and dies shotly thereafter!

    i read john doe's link, but the phone works fine for the five minutes that it has charge - no trouble with repeated reloads or recovery mode.

Hit sounds like a cable problem to me. you can try to buy another one. Look for it for amazon. This happened to me a year ago, and I thought it is just normal only to find out it was my apple charger that went out of control. I bought another one from amazon and it works perfectly fine without any faults or whatsoever . Good luck

Is the replacement battery an original equipment battery? I bought an aftermarket battery for my Samsung and the phone will not recognize the battery even though the specs are identical. Nice trick by Samsung. See if I ever buy another product of theirs again. Anyhow try putting the old battery back in and see if it will function while plugged in. Otherwise head to the phone store.

your battery is probably broken, try replacing it (ifixit.com), or let someone else fix it for you.

If your iPhone's battery runs very far down, the iPhone won't turn on. That's because it's using its remaining battery life to preserve your data and settings.So, your iPhone could be refusing to turn on because its battery doesn't have enough juice. In that case, plug your iPhone into a wall charger or into your computer (plug it directly into the computer; some USB ports on keyboards don't have enough power to charge iPhones). Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. If it was low on battery and needed a charge, when it's got enough juice to power the screen, it will turn on and show you its charging status, starting with the red battery icon.During this process, you may also want to make sure there's no lint packed into your cable or the iPhone's dock connector. This isn't a hugely common problem, but a lot of pocket lint could interfere with the iPhone getting a charge.

Dear HTC, my phone is not charging properly & not showing any display regarding the charging


replace the battery- sounds like it's completely shot. If it still doesn't try- use a micro usb cable attached to a PC- if it still won't charge/come on- the charge board is gone, and you will likely need to replace the phone

Won´t charge


My SLVR had the same problem, so I bought a new one from Amazon. When I plugged the new one in the first time it did fine, but when I ran the battery completely out, it wouldn't charge. I played around with it a little bit, and I think I've found a solution that works: try taking the SIM card out of the phone, THEN charge it. It works on both my new one and my old one that way. The drawback for you is that you can't use your phone while its charging, I just switch phones while the other is charging, a bit of a pain sometimes, but the SLVR is my favorite phone so its worth it. :-) Good Luck.
