Question about HTC Cell Phones

1 Answer

I used a standard micro usb charger before reading the manual and the phone is now completely dead. Even with the correct charger now the light won't even come on. I am in shock that the phone is that sensetive to a micro usb charger not made by htc. Is this really happening? Is the phone dead because I used the wrong charging cable?

Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the power button and the down button simultaneously and see if the phone turns on. It could be the cable but I think it was more the power supply unit that could have something to do with the glitch.

SOURCE: Lg Vu wont charge

First you must determine is it the charger faulty or the phone ? , have you a friend with the same phone if so try her or his battery to see if your phone is ok if so try the charger with your battery and see if it charges if it does get a new charger , if it did not charge or work with your friends battery or charger the sorry it would be cheaper to buy a new phone than try to get it fixed ...
if you haven't got a friend with the same phone have a local electrician check if there is an output from your charger . if there is it may just be the battery try a new one if still no luck it is probably the phone's charger circuit gone pop ,, sorry .. vortash

Zoe-

The charger port is going bad. It happens over time The symptom of this is you have to hold it into place.

The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered under warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com

2. you can get a new phone. cost ???

3.Youcan get an external battery charger to charger the battery separate fromphone. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you canhave one charging at all times. The best and cheapest place to buy a new charger for yourshine is ebay. They run about 5 dollars shipped. Check out thefollowing link for the selection.

Need a new charger port for a samsug galaxy s111


You original Galaxy S3 charger has a cable which is a micro USB at one end and standard USB at the other (both male ends). Then the wall plug part is standard USB (female). You can use any brand replacement to charge your phone.

2012 VW Jetta TDI battery won't hold charge and car only clicks and won't start


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

Green blinking lights


When you get a Red Light and then a flashing green light (5 green blinks and then a yellow blink) it normally indicates that the battery is dead flat. When this happens you MUST connect your device to the charger that was supplied with the PlayBook (it supplies more power than a standard BB charger) and then the device will automatically power up when ready. If you try and use a USB or standard BlackBerry charger it MAY NOT power up correctly.

Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.

My Vivaz won't turn on! USB not responding, charger not responding (but works on another phone) and the red light ain't flashing either.


Your charging port is going out or is completely out. If you have insurance on your phone, use it to get a replacement. If not, see if it's still in warranty and try to get a replacement through the manufacturer.

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.


try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

I was having problems with the car charger CA-051, then, I used a T-Mobile charger, at first time worked, after that, the GPS Maagellan was dead. Is it possible that I have to order a new battery? or I...


Using non standard chargers is probably the problem. If the battery has suddenly become sogged since using this charger then it may have done more damage than you want to know about.
Was it the correct polarity +ve Tip? was it the right amperage?
Magellan are specific in recommending you only use their charger and with reason, its correctly made for it.

You can try the new battery angle, but get advice on the charger.
As a small note.. Car chargers do NOT fully recharge batteries in GPS. Use an AC or USB charger. The car charger is a maintenance power supply. Always fully charge the unit prior to use and do not plug to car power until engine has been started.
These are standard rules with all non hard wired GPS and phones, ( but not always in the manual, have to have service and new sales someway!)

How do I transfer pictures taken by my LG CF 360 phone to my PC?


The USB cable does not work apparently, UNLESS you have a micro SD card inserted. You also have to manually transfer the pictures from the phone's internal memory to the SD card first, then you can transfer them to the PC via the USB cable. The USB connector on the phone is one of the new USB micro A or micro B connectors - make sure you get the correct one. It looks like the one on the phone charger.

No power


Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.

Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.

Bad charger (probably won't work for a dead battery)

Good Charger (correct amperage and designated for the MDA)
