Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Charging problems Yesterday I noticed I was down to about 2 bars on my battery so I plugged in the charger and when I checked to see if it was charging it said "unable to charge" my sister also has a razr and we put my battery in her phone and used the same charger and it worked. The battery icon that was on my screen has disappeared. Any ideas?

Re: charging problems

I had the same problem. Take the back off your phone and push down on the battery (the same way you would to install the sim card) so it slides down to make better contact with the battery contacts. I had the same problem and ended up taking a thin piece of paper and sliding it between the battery and the tab at the top of the phone that holds the battery in tight to the contacts.

Message on my iPhone shows icon for iTunes to plug in a charger. What do I do?

Charge the phone at least overnite. Sometimes a replacement phone may arrive with a totally dead battery and the charger may not be able to put out enough current to operate the phone and charge it at the same time. If you want it to charge faster use a plug in charger with an output rating of 2 amps. They usually have 2 USB outputs and can charge two devices at the same time. If you only charge one device it's a piece of cake for the charger. .

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.

There are 3 solutions to your problem.
1) You need to replace your phone's battery, or
2) You need to replace your charger. (If you have a car charger, try it to determine if your home charger is the problem) or
3) you need to have the charging plug on your phone repaired; it will need to be sent in for service.

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...

Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!

When I plug my charger in there are no bars going up and down on the display showing that it is charging. This is after I accidently plugged in the wrong charger and heard a pop. The phone shut off after...

I would suggest just using the phone until you wear the battery down and then put it back on the charger and charge it up over night and see if it charges. If that works then probably the pop you heard was the part of the display that shows the bars going up blowing out but at least the phone will work for you.

Lg ks360 battery problem,, charge it up fully and battery dies in 2 hours my phone is dead in the morning when i left it the night before with only one bar of the battery down. What can i do to solve this...

Im not sure if this goes for phones...
But I noticed that when you get something with a charger and you seem to over-charge it (Leaving it constantly plugged in or charging it for long periods of time after its fully charged) it actually makes the life of the object shorter....

It could be that because you've been leaving it over night to charge its been eating at the LGs battery...

But like I said, im not sure...
Obviously you can't fix something like that...

Wont charge or is locked

if you plug the charger in and you can see the battery bars going up and down then it is phone problem if the scrren is blank then it is either the charger but if you have a car charger aswell and both chargers worked before then it is probably the phone that has a problem check where the charger plugs in that their is nothing blocking the terminals like fluff or bit of paper check that none of the terminals are bent or coroded if you have used phone in rain they might have got coroded this can be solved by cleaning the terminals on the charging part of the phone but be carefull when you do this not to wreck any thing check the charger make sure nothing bent or blocking the charge the problem with these phone is the pins on the bottom where the charger plugs in these get damaged really easily and they can be replaced but will have to take to phone shop and get repaired hope this is some help to you....................................
