Hi there,
You can try with this procedure, Try to charge another battery in this phone with another charger, if the battery got charged then there is an issue with your charger and battery, if it gives the same problem, then you have to get fixed your phone from repairing shop or your cellphone service center, it seems that the charging IC of your phone is not working properly which needs to be replaced, they will check the whole motherboard of your phone, and will fix the problem, if the set is in warranty claim it as soon as possible .
If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post
Thanks for contacting FixYA! Regards, BA

Pull the battery and clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser... make sure that the matching contacts in the phone are not bent...
The reinstall the battery, hook up your charger and watch the display for "device attached" confirmation on the display. If you don't get a confirmation on the display, it either isn't attached properly, the charger isn't getting power or if it's a car charger, the fuse in the charger is blown.
If after ample time for a complete charge, it's not working, replace the battery.
If none of the above works, it may be time to swap out the phone...

Phone Switches off on its own, even though the battery is new


If it does, the phone device itself could be broken - take steps to get it replaced.

If it doesn't - if it's not the battery, it's the charger. Try a different charger - make sure while it's plugged in - the display shows that the charger is charging it, blinking - or bars going up or down, or a thunderbolt on the display etc. It could still be the battery - there are such things as OUT OF THE BOX FAILURES, where you get a dud for a battery.

All in all, trade someone for their battery, or their charger - if you dont wanna buy one at first. See if the problem follows your old battery etc.. Buying a battery or charger is usually like $5 on ebay, so that's much better than replacing the phone.

My battery went dead this morning i charged it this evening and it is just showing a battery and timer wont switch on or charge??

from what I hear, you have either fully charged your battery or your battery is pretty much completely dead.

your options:

1. If it's completely dead and won't hold a charge it's time to purchase another battery, this happens from time to time so don't freak out about it.
2. If it's fully charged, try taking the battery completely out of the phone, and re-inserting it after a few minutes, sometimes cell phones need to be reset.
3. ensure that your charger is working properly, if its not getting juice to it neither is your phone.
4. try to dial your number just to see what happens to the phone.
5. if someone else u know has a charger like yours try to borrow theirs to charge your phone possibly ruling out a bad charger

Motorola razr v3m battery problems and bootloader ini showing on screen

Well it is both. It should only ever say bootloader when it is plugged in to a PST machine and getting the software updated. I would say that it the hardware is causing the poor battery life or a combo of the battery and the phone.

Sidekick 3 does not receive charge

All right. The Sidekick 3 has a known charging issue that crops up on some phones. If you are under warranty, call t-mobile and get it fixed. If not, the repair is going to run 100+ to fix the charging port.

A fast and simple solution is to by an external charger and an extra battery. They run about 30 bucks total on ebay.

Check out Sidekick Battery Chargers.

Be glad the battery is easily removable. The original sidekick and sidekick II had internal batteries that are a pain in the butt to remove!!!
