Question about Motorola Mobility V120 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Motorola 120c cell phone

My cell phone will not power up. I have checked the battery voltage with a meter and it is 3.7V. It doesn't make any difference if it is connected to the charger, still won't power up. When I remove the battery and then replace it and hit the power button, the initial screen will come on for about 10 sec and then powers off again. Any suggestions?

I will suggest you get a replacement battery first, insert this and try powering your phone back up again.
Check to see if a friend uses your type of phone or that his/her cell phone uses same battery type as yours; then briefly swap.
This way, you'd be able to confirm whether its your cell phone battery that's bad.
In the event you confirm your cell phone battery is still OK, you may have to hard rest your cell phone in order to correct any error with the firmware as thongs stand at the moment.
Note of caution: hard reset wipes your phone clean of passwords, downloaded media, pictures, messages, etc.

SOURCE: Charging problem!!! PLEASE READ!

as i think that charger was not compatible to your phone so when you tried charging it the battery is dead bcoz of excess voltage than it normally bears with the compatible charger of ur phone ...
so this excess voltage has made the battery to be short circuited due to this may be the charging ic or the capacitor is gone ...
so i suggest you to take the cell to the near by technician and just have a check...

the only problem with all motorola phones is that it only charges with the charger with the desired voltage ... if the voltage of the charger is low then it will not show any response(i mean it will not charge but it will not cause any thing to battery as it is of less voltage than the desired voltage )
so i think the charger you buyed provides more than the desired voltage so the battery is dead .....

If you did not replace the firmware,or try and hack the phone then it just died. Nothing last forever. This just means that the light did not die, but the hardware that holds the firmware could have went bad.
You could contact moto and see if they will fix it cheaper than you
can get one off e-bay. You only have 8mo left till your contract runs out. Do not use the upgrade through the carrier,or you are getting robbed. Either wait till it runs out and start a new one or go to
www.wirefly.com, you can get the same exact contract through the same carrier but get a way lower price on the phone,unless the phone you want is free. You could have someone try and reflash
a new firmware on the phone, but I don't think that is the problem.
Hope moto does something for you.

Cant turn iphone4 on?


plug in your charger and try to turn it on, if nothing then check the battery. Check the voltage on your battery with a meter. If voltage isn't present or lower than it says then try a new battery. If that doesn't work it will need professional repair.

My cell phone will not charge,,What can I do?


Ifthe phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the cell phone power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I have a motorola v3xx cell phone that will not power on or charge. I charged the battery in a different phone, but it still would not power on. The phone has not been wet, nor been dropped. What is...


Sound like your phone is done for.
But try this first.
Remove the battery, remove the simm card. Wait 10 minutes.
I can assume the battery is good (as that's the #1 reasons for phone problems) Unless you can test the battery with a meter or use the battery in an identical phone don't assume its good.
Then replace the simm, put tha battery back in and give it a try.
Doesn't power up.?? Head on over to the phone store of your choice. Good luck.
