SOURCE: phone will not switch on battery fully charged.

Usually these problems only occur when the phone is substandard. regardless of you switching the phone off or not this is not a prerequisite to not come on. If you still have warranty on it return it.
Most times when this problem arises in phones it is because the phone was a refurbished one. Refurbished phones are phones which are made up of the scraps from other spoilt similar devices. It usually is a waste to try and fix these devices because you will end up spending more than the cost of replacing the device.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

What is the function of the on/off switch. to save battery or to have on when charging and off when charging at the wall oulet?

On a cell phone it is to extend battery life when the phone is not required. Some phones will still retain some functions eg alarm clock, even when off. You don't need to turn the phone off when charging, but it will charge up faster if you do.

I have a nokia 5230 and the batterey live are not even 24 hours after i have charge it and i dont even have the phone for 10 days yet. Do i Have something connected that should not be connected or are...

If I am made to understand, you have a newq phone, which is not more than 10 days old, and is already developing a battery fault.
Please whenever you purchase any electonic device, ensure to go through the users manual properly. You ougth to charge your battery fully, before using the phone.
This is to give a more durable and stable battery life. As the case is, damage has already bee done to that your phone's battery. Locate a good Nokia store, and purchase a new battery. This time around, ensure to charge it fully before using it.
Also, when charging, do so with a stable supply of power. Also, try to plug it into a DC source, rather than an AC source.
Hope this was helpful?

My LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone is overheated

Definitley your batery had developed reverse polarity and so it will not reain or take in charge. hence the battery will consume more power resulting in this message and it might alsoo be dangerous to keep this on. I would advise you to put in new battery and do the intial charging as required. Keep it on for 8-12 hours of chrage then discharge offf in use fully and rechage again. Repeat this for three time before your battery becomes fully functional. hope this helps. Good day

Basically my cell phone won't switch on


This is an old problem of Nokia 5310, sometimes, this phone will just automatically switch off. Please try this one:

1. Remove the battery of the phone and leave it for about 2 minutes.
2. Insert the battery and try to turn the phone on.
3. If you will get the same problem, you need to bring it to the authorized Nokia Care Center for firmware upgrade or repair.

NOTE: If the phone is under warranty, it should be free of charge.

My Nokia N70 cell phone Screen is white blank

formating your phone may fix the problem

Here’s how to hard reset or format your Nokia N70 mobile phone:
1) Switch off your phone
2) Press and hold these 3 keys together:
-green dial key
-the star key(*)
-the number 3 key (Ugh, I wish I had three hands…!!)
3) Power on the phone
Warning: Do not release the keys until you see a formatting screen and even after the phone has started. Wait until the initial sound starts to play and the hand animation is displayed.

Before formating make sure that your battery is fully charged. Copy all your important contacts, messages, calender, etc in your memory card and your phone should be fully charged window.google_render_ad();

Battery charge is finished very soon without even using it( in about 5 hours)

The proper way of charging the battery on your phone is by waiting for your phone to indicate that it's running out of powe but not completelyr, if you frequently charge your phone even if it's not yet necessary(battery life indicator show half-way) the ability of the battery to store power will deminished hence the battery life is shorter. Last resort would be trying another battery unit to test if it's your battery of your phone that's causing the unsual battery drain.

Or you can try the following steps on conserving your phones battery life;

  • Turn off your Infrared and BlueTooth when not in use. Even when they are not in use, they do keep drawing power looking for signals.
  • Switch off the vibration alerts. Vibration causes a lot of power usage thereby making battery drain fast.
  • Re-adjust your screen brightness to around 50%. Screen power is another silent killer.
  • Usually, presetted Backlight durations are of pretty high order, this can be readjusted to get more from your battery. Try reducing the Backlight duration.
  • Often we don’t understand that playing games requires Light, Sounds and Shakes. This in turn leads to tripling of battery drainage.
  • Lower Ringing and other message sounds. This too helps saving a lot of battery.
  • Finally, do charge your battery before it gets drained fully. This enhances battery life.
