    When i connect the G1 to any sort of charger (even in a cradle) it says that it is charging but it doesnt actually charge. If i monitor the %charge it goes down instead of up.. ive tried new batteries n that doesnt work.

    ALso when i connect it to my laptop it again says charging but my computer freezes when tryin to open the SDcard in my computer. so im guesing that a pin is not making proper contact in the usb socket on the phone?

    any1 had the same problem or got any ideas on how to fix it?

Blame it on weather maybe, I have this problem often. I found that if you don't try and charge it ALL the time, it may work better. I have even created a cradle to keep it from moving while charging.
The car chargers have this problem more.
Let me know if this helps.

USB connection is not working

Here's where to get hold of solutions to this common problem.

it's most likely cos

1. you don't have drivers for the usb

2. You haven't enabled usb connectivity
Make sure USB Debugging is turned on. On the G1 click the Menu button and go to Settings > Applications > Development and check USB Debugging if it isn't already.

3. If everything fails, you may need to check your cable to see if it's still okay. borrow another one or buy cheaply from a reputable seller on ebay.

Wont charge. i plugged into so many usb cables and box chargers and light wont turn on nothing charges it

Your charging port is probably bad. It is a common issue. You can take it into an electronics shop and they could fix it by sending it to the manufacturer, but it might cost more than a new phone like the HTC incredible

I just dropped my Android G1 and now it won't turn back on. I took out battery and put back in but nothing. Is there any way to reset this phone?

There is a small hole on the bottom of the g1 where you charge it. Something small like a paper clip or something can fit inside and that will reset the phone to factory settings. Not sure if it will turn it on though...

My problem is that the carging part from my phone is damege n won't charge my phone wat do I do

Thats a tought porblem. You could find a old phone that uses the same battery and use the charger port of the old phone to charge your battery. A call to your cell provider may help finding what phone also uses your type of battery.Old phones can be bought on ebay or craigs list for cheep. Find your battery model number and google " phones that use _ _ _ _ _ battery. good luck.

G1 phone menu button will not work!

I had this issue and I thought it was dirt or something underneath the button. I took the phone apart and found the problem. Turns out it was dust or built up dried condensation on the motherboard where the ribbon cable that connects the buttons. Look for the youtube video on how to take apart the phone and it's the connection on the bottom of the phone to the right. and just use some alcohol and q-tips to clean the connections.
