Re: my phone wont charge

Same here. I had my first M500 and it worked fine for about 7-8 months and then it started to give me trouble charging it. I went to the a repair center and they gave me a completely new phone. It has been only 2-3 months since I got my NEW phone and the same problem is occurring. I spend a good 10-30 minutes a day trying to figure out a way to keep the charger in a certain position for it to charge my phone. The phone has a flaw, it's very obvious. I'm sure when I go in they will want to give me a new phone.

I found tying a rubberband around the phone the band holding the cord of the charger around the left side of the phone tightly so that it is pressing tightly on the left is the best way to charge the phone if you can't get to a repair center soon.

Try replacing the charger and check new charger works or not. The problem is surely in the charger.

check your charger first, if charger is ok then check the charging connector on the phone, clean it with a toothbrush and solvent cleaners.

This happened to me too, you have to take your phone back to who you bought it from so they can repair it. Its the chip inside the phone that is bad. Not the charger.

Sony Ericsson K770i Phone won't turn on red light apears on the top left, any suggestions?

This has happened to me twice - the first instance occurred when I'd only had the phone a few days and the second occurred today after months of trouble-free use.

On both occasions the phone wouldn't charge via the mains charger - it wouldn't switch on even when plugged in and neither the battery or the charger were warm to the touch after hours of charging, indicating that nothing was happening.

The solution for me was to connect the phone to my PC via the USB cable - nothing happened at first, the PC didn't recognise the phone and it remained lifeless. However, I left it attached to my PC and after 10-15 minutes it suddenly whirred into life.

The battery was COMPLETELY flat despite my attempts at mains charging, so I let it charge via USB for a while then transferred it to the mains charger. This time the mains charger worked.

I've no idea why, but this has worked for me twice so give it a try.
