Question about Kyocera K10 Royale Cellular Phone

Go to charge it turns off and doesn't turn on again

When we plug the phone in to charge it turns off and doesn't turn on again. I have switched batteries from my phone to my daughter's phone and then her phone works again, until the next time it gets plugged in to charge and then it shuts off and will not power up again. I think it is the phone itself not the batteries. Is there some kind of reset button? Anyone else had this problem? Daughter says she hasn't done anything to it, if she did I am not sure she knows what she did.

Kyocera K10 Chronic Problem. It Shuts Off Unintentionally, Automatically.

There is an inherent problem in the K10 cell phone and VirginMobile knows it. They will automatically shut off several times a day at random intervals.

They will send a 'refurbished' replacement free of charge. Most of these are phones customers sent back for the same problem. They give it a quick test and then send it along as a replacement to the next customer.

After the third ( that's right, count 'em, THREE) replacement phones, they finally sent me an Kyocera Oyster phone as a replacement.

I had my original phone 2 years before the problem began. I read somewhere that it is a virus afflicting the K10. Virgin Mobile will not officially acknowledge th problem but their some of thier customer service reps will. Have this problem? Contact VM.

Hold down the "call" and "hang up" buttons at the same time--worked for me.

This rumor 2 won't turn on or charge at all. i really need help. thanks

Have you tried taking out the battery and putting it in again? Another thing, sometimes when the battery is completely drained you need to turn on with the charger on (since you can't charge when your phone is off and with no power).

My n73 turned off during the phone software update and it does not turn on. what i have to do.... please help me

First make sure that the battery is charged. Then take out the battery for 10 seconds and put it back again. Try to switch on the phone. If this doesn't work then the only way to restore the phone is to take it to a service centre and ask them to flash it.

My phone died last night. plugged it, showed the charging symbol. after about ten-fifteen minutes i tried turning it on. now it refuses to turn on. just shows a screen with a USB symbol on it.

Try plugging it back in and turning the phone on while it is plugged in. If that doesn't work, you can try removing the battery and turning on the phone, but I'm not sure what that might do.

My cellphone keeps turning itself off and then back on again when i try to connect to the internet

THis is all I have found so far... bear in mind that the phone will probably use more power when on the intenet

The battery doesn’t charge properly or the
phone sometimes turns itself off
• Wipe the charging contacts both on the phone
and on the battery with a clean soft cloth.

I suggest you try a WHITE pencil eraser to clean battery contacts and then clean again with alcohol, ethanol, methylated spirit etc then air dry before turning off
