Question about Motorola Mobility V170

1 Answer

Phone won't charge

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? Thanks.

Re: phone won't charge

Try charging with the flip open and watch what it says.
otherwise a new battery might be needed

Phone will not turn on or charge

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.

Motorola cellular w376g, battery won't charge

If possible test with another charger like a car charger if you have one
also try removing the battery plug in the charger and put the battery back in (don't touch the contacts/gold pins)

if it works with other chargers then the charger is bad

if it doesn't work with other chargers charging port/battery/phone is bad

Hi how long should it take to charge the

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.

Download Motorola Phone tools and get a new battery for your phone.
The batteries go bad about once a year, sometimes longer.

W850i red light prob

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.

Won´t charge

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.

Did you try a new battery yet? What is the reason he did not use it anymore? I would try the easy stuff first before proceding to anything radical.
