Question about Motorola Mobility SLVR L7 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone says "charge complete" but then just dies

This is the second time this has happened. A few moths ago I let the battery completely die, then charged it and it said charge complete. Unplugged the charger and everything died. It's just black! Took the batter and SIM card out, put it back together, nothing. Put SIM card in another Motorola - same thing (charge complete, nothing). Took both phones back to Best Buys, the guy took the SIM card out of the other phone, put it back in the SLVR and it just worked! Well, I did it again - let the battery die; now the exact same thing is happening: "charge complete", then black. Any ideas?

Re: Phone says "charge complete" but then just dies

I took your suggestion and replaced the SIM card, but the difference is I managed to locked it in tightly. It worked.

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.

try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

How long should i charge a new optimus black

The optimus black phone should take 2-3 hours to fully charge. When you get a new phone, however, it is generally a good idea to let the battery completely die before you start charging it.

Over time, batteries hold less and less charge. Supposedly, by allowing the battery to completely die before charging it the first time, you improve the longevity of the battery.

Got this phone a few days ago but it only holds a charge for about 6 or 7 hours even if not in use but left on.I've let the battery die and recharged it 3 or 4 times but always the same problem. Any...

Why would you let the battery die? That is suicide for multi-cell batteries. More batteries have been wrecked by fully discharging than you can imagine. On the old NiCads, which are NOT used in cell phones, they recommended discharging the cells completely at one time. The problem is you CANNOT discharge the individual cells when they are packaged together. If you try to discharge them, one cell goes flat before the others and is reversed charged destroying it. All the new fang-led cell phones burn the power... mine is dead in a day. WORSENING the problem is if the phone is on and in a weak signal area because it cranks up the power to tell the cell tower it is available and uses as much power as it take to communicate... this occurs all the time, not just while you are talking on the phone.

My LG VX9400 phone wont charge when the battery completely dies if i plug it in it just flashes the verizon sign a few times then turns completely off


If your phone is under warranty (usually 1 year), contact Verizon for a replacement.

If your phone is out of warranty, I would suggest to replace the battery. There are many places online

Hope this helps.

My phone was working fine yesterday, It ran out of charge last night and when I put it on the charger thismorning it now just flashes white screen every 5 seconds or so ... is it dead ? cheers Wal

The phone should never be left to die out of charge anytime for good health of battery and phone.
So the problem is that the battery has completely died out so its not getting charged again, it bound to happen sometimes. So all you need to do is get it to a repair shop and just boost the battery initially so that it starts charging again.
Its similar to jump start in a car. So do not worry its a cheap fix only and never let it again to die out of charge.

The battery dies so fast


You charging port is probably going bad. It happens now and then.

Contact your provider if the phone is still under warranty.

Problem With LG VU Not Charging

My MOTOKRZR K1 battery/phone will not stay charged very long.

Let ur phone completely die. Don't charge it or anything when the low battery notice comes on. After it completely dies, put it on the charger only until it says charge complete. U might have to do it a few times to get ur battery performing as it should. If you charge ur battery too often, it causes ur battery to swell (weird I know) and your battery starts resisting charge. Hope this helps!! (I used to have the same phone and the same problem. I did this, and now my mom is using the phone and has an exceptional battery time)

LG VX8700 won't stay charged...

I had the same problem with mine... I found that you must let the battery completely drain out; I was continuously jumping to charge my phone when it was down to one bar, and realized that upon doing this, the battery never fully retains its charge for as long as it will if you let it die out (blank screen; completely off).

I did this twice, and have not had a problem since.

Hope that helps!

hi your battery has created a memory because you didn't follow simple battery guidelines:

For a new phone with a new battery;

1)Use the phone the first time until the battery dies,
2)Do a full charge - 6-8hours for the first time
3)Use the phone until it dies the second time
4)recharge the battery for 3-5 hours

then your battery should be good, but now your battery needs to be changed, as it already has memory and can only be restored if completely discharged by a battery conditioner
