Question about Motorola Mobility KRZR K1 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Motorola krzr won't recharge.

When I plug the charger in it doesn't show as charging. The charger works with another phone in the same outlet. I noticed the female mini usb on the phone wiggles around when the charger is plugged in. This leads me to believe that the port has come loose from it's connector.

Is this correct? If so can I get it repaired anywhere or is it "beyond economic repair?"

The charger socket is soldered directly to the main board - if it's just the solder joints that have cracked, then a decently equipped mobile phone repair place should be able to resolder it - if it's actually ripped the copper traces off the board, then it's not really practical to repair it.

Since I happened to have a K1 in bits, here is a photo of the connector - it's normally attached quite firmly to the main PCB.

    Ah - I didn't notice that - I was answering another question about the K1, and this came up under "maybe you can help with these problems?" - I didn't think to check the date...

Your battery is shot. Rechargeable batteries only last so long.

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.

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

The battery doesn't work fine


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I have 2 motorola phones........the v195 and the krzr but when i try to charger both..........they not taking the charge. i tried removing the battery and everything. PLZ HELP


Try getting a mini-usb cable and connecting it to your pc- either that, get a second Motorola charger. I suspect that the charger you currently have is defective- it is rare for two pieces of equipment to show the exact same issue

My motorola defy shows a white light when i plug in the charger but the screen only says LoadBoot. 09.10 and Cannot program battery low.... doesnt the white light mean its charging? I've tried taking out...


If you bought it from a specific company be it thru internet or site store take it to the providers site store and if there is no water damage and item is less 1 year old factory warranty covers the phone and if you got an extended warranty they should replace it in the the store, but with factory warranty they will mail you a new one (with the exclusion of the battery) and you will have to return the old one thru the USPS at their charge.

Hope that was helpful if I can help further let me know. Please rate/vote or testify to my advice.

Krzr won't turn on


I would inspect your connectors (both charger & phone) as well for dirt, debris, or damage.
I would also suggest using Motorola's wall chargers, the products seem to charge best with them rather than the after-market knock-offs which also seem to damage the phones connectors on some models.
If there is damage to your connector , you will need to get your phone serviced.

Dead battery won't recharge


if it still new and you've still got the warranty then you should ask for replacement of the whole unit.
seems that the problem of your phone is the unit itself, the charging circuit migth have disorders/malfuntioning.
ever tried checking for the specifications and directions for charging the unit.
i greatly suggest that if you got the warranty still, have it replaced.
good day!!!
