    I got mine in Hong Kong, but never used the phone there. When I got back to the States, the phone wouldn't charge no matter what charger I used. I tried to charge it using the USB cable, but the computer doesn't recognize the phone. Could it be a bad connector on the phone?

I have the same problem, but then I realized that the battery only charges through the battery desk charger that comes with the phone. Use that, if you have one.

Motorola phones are designed not to charge if the battery drains below a certain point as a safety measure. Normally the phone will shut off before the battery drains to this point but if your battery is bad or you bought one of those $5 batteries online this could happen. If this is the problem then you must charge the battery in a separate charger first and then just never let it go completely dead before charging it in the phone. Or better yet buy a decent battery to begin with.

I had the same problem also i found two things you could do, the first one if your computer does not charge the phone is because you need to install the drivers need to do this. you could find them on if you type motorola a1200 drivers in google or yahoo then install them in your computer. i also got my hands on a european charger and that worked i had to put on the us converter for it and that worked. hoped that help

My phone did the same thing, and all i did was plug it to the computer, it won't react at first but give it time. Once you pluged it to your computer it should on and just let it charge till complete.

Motorola A1200 cell phone battery will not charge with AC chargers


HI,

If your phone is still under warranty the best solution is to get it replaced.The problem is actually with the port of the charger.I mean the hole in which you plug in your charger isn't working properly.Where as your USB port is different and works properly so it charges the battery.So you will have to get this repaired.

My MOTOKRZR K1 battery/phone will not stay charged very long.


Let ur phone completely die. Don't charge it or anything when the low battery notice comes on. After it completely dies, put it on the charger only until it says charge complete. U might have to do it a few times to get ur battery performing as it should. If you charge ur battery too often, it causes ur battery to swell (weird I know) and your battery starts resisting charge. Hope this helps!! (I used to have the same phone and the same problem. I did this, and now my mom is using the phone and has an exceptional battery time)

Motorola L6 Phone not charging or working


Well,

I solved the problem for my L6. IT appears that somehow the phone is software dependent. Meaning that you need to have the Motorola Software for the phone installed in your computer, connect the phone and voila! At least it solved my problem. All of a sudden it charged automatically and I can now charge with the power adapters too. (Yes I too went and bought a different charger, then when it didn;t worked I got a different battery..etc.) just give it a try. I think you can get it for free online somehow, just google it.

Motorola A1200 Problem


Easy step by step solution!

Hey guys had the same, Try this solution before buying a new battery/charging cable (it might not be the problem):

I did these steps after playing around with it for awhile and am at the stage where my phone turns on fully and says "Battery Charging" when plugged into the charger. It is now charging normally again... Finally! (I had the flashing moto logo too when charger plugged in) I believe this problem occurs because the battery is completely drained and is unable to turn on to charge bcuz the phone needs to be on to be charged, happened to me because i left it in a jacket pocket and forgot about it for weeks. Anyways...

1. You need a USB data cable for it, it should have come with the phone, if not than any USB data cable that fits the phone's charging slot should work (charge cable for the ps3 controller will work or maybe a cable from a digital camera with the same end)

2. Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable and a USB port that works. Make sure it's plugged in and leave it (even if nothing happens and the screen on the phone is still blank). Although the screen is black, the phone is still charging via your computer (it's just too low on battery to produce the light on the display screen to load up your phone).

3. This might take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes so be patient and leave it plugged in, beats buying a battery of charger with your money for something that can be solved for free.

4. At some point your computer will make the usual processing noises signalling that it is finally recognizing the phone as a usb device and shortly after your ming's screen will turn on stating that the battery is charging. Success! One of two things will happen, if you have previously installed the ming's drivers to your pc it will just recognize the phone. If you are like me and do not have the drivers installed, you may choose to do so via the cd that came with the phone or just not do it at all.

5. If you want to just charge it via the computer then congrats, your job is done, just leave it plugged in and wait until it is fully charged. If you wish to switch to your regular outlet charger please proceed to step 6.

6. At this point drivers installed or not, either safely remove device from the computer or just unplugg it. Now return your phone to your usual outlet charger making sure its connected. When plugged in you'll notice the moto logo appear (no longer flashing). After about 5 seconds that logo will disappear. At this time flip open the phone. The usual turn on sequence will play out and it will now load up with the battery charging screen similar to the screen from when it was plugged into the computer. Congratulations your phone should be back to normal now.

NOTE: This charge will take longer than your normal charging time but that's just for this time since your battery is super low it will be back to normal after that. Also if this did not work for your phone then now is the time to see if the charger/phone/battery is the problem.

So I hope this helps you out and eases your state of panic. I hope I saved you guys some money with this solution and that your mings are up and running again. I know i was pretty content when the problem was fixed. Please reply with any comments, questions or concerns you may have. Enjoy your once again working mings.

Charging


Its the battery.

You can try putting the battery in the freezer for 8 hours, then leave it at room temperature for 24 to see if it can be saved.





Best of Luck.
