    I have the same problem as billuxv's. I heard that the battery normally dies if you drain it all by using your phone and if the battery is completely dead you can not charge it afterwards. but if you charge it while your phone is on than the battery will keep on chraging the battery in normal way. I have used about 12 batteries(bought from ebay) and all of them died like that. this time I am not letting my phone to drain all the battery becuase i charge it again before it is drained. It is hard to keep the phone all the times charged but this way you may keep on using your phone.

My iPhone 5c isn't working it turns on and then fades away

Have you tried to charge the phone?
Plug it into the charger and wait for it to charge, confirm that it is charging. After it has ample charge, disconnect it and try to turn it on again. If this does not work, try leaving it plugged into the charger, then power on the device.
How old is the device?
Typically, if the iPhone 5 does this, it is the power source.
May need a battery replacement, but if it is also not charging, it could be the data port.

Wont turn on

Phone will still boot without a SIM card usually just comes up and says that you need a SIM card to operate the phone but it will still boot/charge without it. Could be bad battery most HTC phones will not boot without a operational battery. Pull the battery and plug it into a charger if the Charging light goes on for like 3-5 sec. then off most likely battery is faulty if no light at all, could be a bunch of different reasons.

Iphone will not turn on! Shows Apple logo then fades out?

Leave the phone plugged into the car charger with the "plug into itunes" screen long enough to build a charge. It sounds like the phone is dying before it gets a chance to connect to itunes and start charging through the computer. If this does not work then the store clerk was correct and your battery will need replacing

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...

Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

I am trying to charge the battery. The charger is flashing a red light and the battery won't seem to charge. Placed it in the camera just in case, and it won't turn on.

Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.

Battery won't charge

Check if you could run it on AC without the battery. If yes, you battery should be faulty or worse dead. If it is within warranty, get it replaced

use a multimeter to check for power on the +ve wire, could be your fuse, it only rus a sec when you jumper the remote to +ve because the remote cannot give out the nessary current to run the amp.
