Question about HTC G1

1 Answer

Speaker not working

I've been using the new g1 adroid phone for the past month. I charge it nightly since the battery life on it is so short. However, it died completely last night even after charging most of the day, so I tooked the back cover off and removed the battery and rebooted. After doing this the speaker stopped working. I am receiving calls and the phone vibrates but I can't hear the ringer. I went into settings to check the ring volume - it was on high. I tried changing ring tones and can't hear anything. I then placed a call and tried putting it on speaker but it doesn't work.
Is the speaker broken or did I somehow turn the speaker off. I can't find anything in the settings.

Hi,

I believe this could be a battery,well we have the same phone and all process you take note sounds like it was my problem before.

Why is this things happening?

Battery can be easily damage due to improper usage like charging the phone while calling,listening to music,browsing etc. two current supply is entering your phone simultaneously. One is coming from the battery powered and the other is coming on the dc charger.the result, it will make your battery deform.

Just replace it a new one and for sure it will be fine again.But please avoid or minimized using your phone while on charge.To be able to preserve your battery life for long time usage.


Hope this simple guide helps you. Thank you for visiting FixYa....

My g1 will not charge fast like it use 2


Have you tried recalibrating the battery? To do this you use the phone until it completely runs out of battery and switches itself off. Make sure it has completely run out by continuing to turn it back on until nothing happens except a red LED coming on. Then charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will improve your battery life.

HTC G1 dead, can't power on, factory reset/soft reset not working


Well try to get your hands on either a second G1 phone or a multimeter to rule out a battery issue. If you take a charged battery from another G1 and it still doesn't turn on you will have a logic board issue. With a multimeter you can measure the battery directly, if the phones doesn't turn on if the voltage is over 3.7V, you'll have a logic board issue as well. Within one year T-Mobile should give you a replacement. If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices that are not meant to be user serviceable.

My G1 battery charge does not last that long it discharges real fast


Well, the G1 is a smartphone and it's constantly on the internet so it's obviously going to use a lot more battery power. However 3 hours is ridiculously short! You could try recalibrating the battery. To do this you use your phone until it has completely run out of charge and switches itself off. Then you turn it on again and again until all that it shows is a red LED and it refuses to turn on. After this you charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will help improve your battery life.

Phone wont turn on


How long did you have the phone before this problem? Is there a warranty on the phone? Did you buy it brand new?
