When I plug my phone in, the red "charging" light doesn't come on anymore. I leave it plugged in overnight. When I unplug it, if I open it, the screen says "Battery Charging". But if I then turn the phone on, it doesn't have any more power than it had before I tried to charge it.
I'm rapidly running out of power... Anyone know how to get it to start charging again?

I would first suggest leaving your phone plugged in (charging) at least overnight. Many times if the battery is drained past a certain point the android device will not power on, even if plugged in. Try this first and hopefully it will fix the issue.
Yes you certainly can. Modern day phones your intrunsic semiconductors to reulate the level of charging. At its simplest lvele a zenner diode in reverse bias or a normal diode with a potential divider that ensures that the charging process stops the moment the potential across the battery exceeds that required as per the settings of the poptential divider the diode starts conducting and charge is blocked off.
not to worry this is a fixable problem..............take te phone to a mobile shop and have them reflash the firmware n custom pack back into the phone and this will correct the problem....the erom needs to be loaded back on the phone.
When it is red light of death, it either means the bootloader of the phone is faulty (after uploading dodgy firmware updates), or the battery is too empty to start-up, let alone display charging progress. In your case you need to leave the phone charging even with the red light flashing and it will be fine. Give it a few hours connected to the charger.
My SLVR had the same problem, so I bought a new one from Amazon. When I plugged the new one in the first time it did fine, but when I ran the battery completely out, it wouldn't charge. I played around with it a little bit, and I think I've found a solution that works: try taking the SIM card out of the phone, THEN charge it. It works on both my new one and my old one that way. The drawback for you is that you can't use your phone while its charging, I just switch phones while the other is charging, a bit of a pain sometimes, but the SLVR is my favorite phone so its worth it. :-) Good Luck.
