Home Charger Quit Working

I have a RAZR v3xx. My car charger works, and it charges via USB on my computer, however my home charger will no longer work. It used to work fine, but suddenly quit working (maybe after I first plugged it into my USB?). My friend had an extra home charger and so she gave that to me and it doesn't work either. Any ideas?

Its not due to charging it via usb. Your charger is not giving full amount of charge and thats why its charging with the usb but not with the charger. And, if that is not the case then somehow an internal ic inside your phone is blown and needs a repair.

Please ask for further clarifications.

It's more effective to use a charger than the usb adapter. The web site has a nice deal on a Palm Centro PDA Phone Home/Travel Charger:
You may also do a google search for palm centro charger. I hope this helps.

1. Check your charger with another iPhone. If it is working, your battery may be dead. If not, replace the charger. You can buy some at or any other site you like. 2. Try charging the phone on your laptop via USB cable. Hope this helps. If so, please rate. Thank you

No power

Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.

Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.

Bad charger (probably won't work for a dead battery)

Good Charger (correct amperage and designated for the MDA)

SIM not recognized

I had the same problem with charging, I found that my car charger and via USB charged the phone but not my home charger. Give that a try, if it works with either one of them you will have to send it to Motoservice center and they will fix the internal connection problem. (save your money on buying new batteries and chargers) Make sure that the phone is not locked to a network, or make sure that the SIM has not expired and has plenty of credit.
