If your phone is older than a year or two, the battery pack probably is dying. I advise shopping well for a replacement or buying a new phone; one of our family had a simple phone only a little over a year old and Radio Shack (not my favorite source for anything) had the pack at $50 US. We didn't buy it as the phone cost only $30.  The next day, he replaced the whole phone for $20.

Ok so i got a G1, and the problem is it wont turn on. even when i charge it, it wont turn on. The farthest it goes it to opening where it says G1 and then it turns off after that. Whats wrong with it, do i...


Try hard resetting it once. But make sure you have enough charge. But this will erase everything.

To perform a Hard Reset


  1. Turn the phone off. If it is frozen, take the battery out and put it back in.
  2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
  3. Press Alt+L.
  4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
  5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.

It wont turn on dont know if i is charging


If it will not turn on, even when plugged into the wall (can be done without the battery installed) it is a faulty connection/piece where the charger plugs into the phone. A good way to check would be to go to a cell phone store with those types of batteries and if one of their batteries works & your phone turns on, it is definitely the port the charger plugs into on your phone.

My phone is not powering on when i plug the charger in it has a green light in the top right corner but its not turning on when i press and hold the button on the top left 


try taking the battery out and while holding the power button in put the battery back in, if you still get nothing on the screen try doing the same , holding the power button down while you insert the charger.

If a tri coloured screen appears you will be able to reflash it, if it doesnt appear, then your battery is dead and it wont charge no matter how much you try, the MDA(or wizard) wont charge the battery, unless windows is running, i would recommend you buy a new battery, they are cheap enough

NOTE!!!
If the battery is very low but you can get the multicoloured bootscreen, i would not advise flashing it as you have no idea of how much charge is in the battery, if the battery fails during flashing you wont have a phone anymore

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?


Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.
