Question about Samsung SGH-D900 Cellular Phone

Battery not holding charge

My battery used to last a couple of days, a few weeks ago it started to run out after only 7 hours (I'm not using it more than usual).  I thought maybe the battery needed replacing as it's nearly 2 years old. I am now on my fourth new battery in as many weeks and it still won't hold the charge for more than approx 7 hours. I'm glad the shop I bought the battery from has replaced it so many times, but there has to be something wrong for it not to hold it's charge.  Any ideas please?

    Thanks for trying, it didn't work though. The battery ran out again after only 6 hours of being switched on and not used. I tried again once I had recharged it but the same thing happened.

Here is how
I solved my problem with my LG900 phone. Take out the battery. Plug the charger
into the phone. Install the battery. My phone would not take a charge any other
way and I might include that after doing this, both batteries showed that they
were fully charged.

My battery does not hold the charge, i will charge it for 24/hour and it only last 5 minute, why is that, iI buy this product for wife when went to Iraq, and when i talked ton her on the phone three months...


NiCad batteries have this problem when they are recharged frequently after being only partially discharged. This is also the case when the batteries are left in the charger continuously - even if the charger is described as being "automatic". I have old 12v batteries that I have been using for 20 years, but I only charge them for a few hours, and only when they have run down enough to be useless. I prevent leaving them too long in the charger by using a timer that cuts the power to the charger after a couple of hours. A couple of years ago I bought new drills and chargers, and believed that the chargers would be automatic and so could be left plugged in. Those batteries only lasted a couple of years, while the old ones are still going strong. I now use the timer for any of these chargers, automatic or not - but I had to buy new batteries first. good luck, Al K

I don't think you did anything wrong. I think your battery is tired and can't take a charge deep enough as it used to. As batteries get older and after repeated discharge and recharge during normal operation, they start losing their ability to hold charge as deep as when new. This is gradual and after a couple of years they drop to 50% and less. I think your attempt was "gallant" and you did everything correct, but it sounds that battery has flatlined on you and "Doc, the patient is gone"

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

After recording with a full new battery (and the old one) the power just shuts off after about 15 min. Why?


The camcorder will shut off (i.e. go into "sleep" mode) after a few minutes of inactivity - to save your battery, particularly when your battery is at half or lower.
I find that my (fully charged) battery lasts only about 30 minutes (or less, if I use the zoom a lot, or, I use the filming (night) light, or I do not put the lens cover on when not in use, or I do not close the LCD display screen). I'll usually power off after completing my shots.
I keep a close watch on the battery meter and switch batteries as soon as it shows a red bar. (Just give it a minute to wrap-up before shutting down). I usually carry a couple of extra charged batteries. A larger (after market) battery that I bought lasted a hour or so, but it didn't hold a charge well after a couple of weeks of use.

Battery will not charge


If the battery will not charge or only has enough for a few minutes or less of power then it is (past) time to replace it with a new one. Depending on how you use and charge expect about 2 years of usable life out of a battery. They seem to make most of these just before quiting time on a Friday so they really don't last. I do have a couple of laptops I use both on and off the charger that are much older than that
One is from 95 and still gives 5 hours of charge.

First check if it might be replaced under warrenty. OEM or Store purchase warrenty's cover this.

If its coming out of your pocket it really pays to shop around. I was replaced one a week ago and was quoted $84 to $176 in town. The higher prices were from computer stores and were saying a week to get it in. The $84 was a battery store and was in the next day.

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new...


If the troubleshooting section in the back of the user guide doesn't help, I sugget getting in touch with Sony and asking them if it's normal, the only thing I can suggest in the meantime, is taking the battery out while it's not in use, or recharge it a few hours before you're due to use it. Phones get like it after a few years and with technology advancing the way it is these days, you'd expect a battery life lasting longer than a week, not a day.

Things to consider:
1. When it's off, is it off or left on standby?
2. Where did you buy both the camera and batteries from?
3. When you charge it up, do you charge it up with a half charged battery or a totally dead battery?

Battery Problem


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I wish my 8700 would last even as long as yours does. 2 hours, period. on or off, taking pictures or not, two hours & it's a stone dead battery. Just on the off chance it will help I'm about to upgrade the firmware to 1.3 (I don't really think it will help). After that I've decided to take the camera apart & try to find the problem or possibly just a hack that will let me turn it OFF without removing the battery. I'd as soon have a bunch of bits for the project bin as have to put up with this 2 hour battery life problem. Good luck with your problem, and if I find anything worth while I'll post back.
