Re: like dead

Could be the power connector on the bottom is worn out. I have sent mine back to Palm to have this repaired, it seems to be a common problem at the moment this question has nbeen posted a lot recently

My HTC mobile not going to on after pressing power button and on connection of charger it is showing red LED. Same there here. I woke up this morning and my phones just dead. Even if i connect the charger...

Remove the battery then connect the charger without the battery. Then hold down the power button for a few seconds. The red light may come up for a quick second during this process.

Don't remove the charger. After the red light goes off then insert the battery and check if the light turns amber or orange.

Leave it in orange or amber light state for about 2 minutes. After that, try to turn it on. If it turns on then it is resolved. If not then there is a hardware problem with your phone and it needs to be checked at any HTC Service Center.

I am trying to charge my phone right now but it is just a constant red light where it would usually be orange and it is saying 0% charged

did you run the battery completely flat?

my phone if it has gone dead, when plugged in to charge, has a red LED for about 5 minutes where you cannot even turn it on it is that dead. after those minutes pass the phone can then be turned on, and the LED changes color to orange to indicate it is charging and is also powered on.

My htc wont open and when i connect charger, led light goes red what happen?

Maybe your battery is dead and will not charge. Normally when you connect the charger the led must become orange after a few seconds and green when the battery is fully charged. If it stays red the battery is not charging.

My Phone dont want to charge

Try to turn off and on the phone. If that still does not work try to use a different charger. Sometimes even if the light is on the charger does not charge.

Phone completely dead

This is a very odd problem with an even "odder" solution. When this happened to mine, I found a website that told me the following. I swear it works... eventually... probably.
Take the back off and just set it aside for a few minutes.
Now, remove the battery, and then put it back in, and then press the power button. If that does not do it, repeat the process...
... like 20 or 30 or 40 times. Eventually, the unit will make a (scary sounding) "pop" noise, and should turn on as normal.
I have had 3 Tilts. (I tend to be hard on phones.) Of those, two have had the "death" issue. Both were resuccitated this way, and worked just fine afterward.
Best of luck! Hope that helped. :-D

If the light doesnt turn to orange after a few minutes on the charger then the problem hardware related. Try another battery if there is no change then there is fault in the device, and repairs are required.

also you can try


1. Plug it in the Charger without the battery inside.

2. switch on the power.

3. Without removing the charger plug in the battery.

4. Light should turn orange.

5. Wait a moment or two then power it on.

that might get it to work.

Battery not charging on rx3115

Be sure the charger is connected to AC power. USB charging won't work when a battery's really dead. And it may take up to 24 hours, I've read, to get it recharged.
