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?

Re: Battery not holding charge

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.

Automatic shutdown

Not a real technical solution but if the original battery is still being used then there is a chance the battery is not holding the charge. I've had this issue in the past with a Motorola Droid and after the battery was replaced it held on for a few days instead of a couple of hours. Depending on phone use and charging methods older batteries will not hold a charge for long. I would recommend trying to get a battery saver app from the Google Play store to see if it helps as well. Again, this isn't a real tech solution but I hope this helps you along some. =)

Charging problem


there is nothing wrong with your charger. The problem is from your battery.

The battery cell is very weak, such that it does not have the ability to with hold power for long.

Therefore, get another battery and the problem will be resolved. But make sure you charge the new battery till its full before you start using it.

Take care.

Battery life

It must be battery's defect that prevented it from retaining the charge. You may want to replace the battery. I just got one from for $6.95 w/ free shipping.

My battery does not last too much

ideally, you wouldn't recahrge the battery until it's completely flat. If you're charging it before then, you can mess with the battery, and it forgets how to retain charge.

Try letting it go completely dead, then cahrging it for around four hours completely. (don't disconnect it during this time). Let it run until it dies again, and repeat the process over a few times. You should find that after a couple times, it works fine, and you can get up to three days of battery life if you don't use it a lot.

Sidekick 3 battery problems :(

what you do is get a new battery and if that does not help the situation then take the phone into a service center to have it check.

Maybe it's battery. Try to use another maybe helps.
If not it's problem with software in it, what is connected with power point-battery and its showing low battery and switching off.
Second what you can do is to clean connection inside maybe it's stuck something and not giving the power in.
Good luck!

Phone dies quickly after charging

It would be helpful to know just how quickly the battery is going flat, and I'm assuming there's no history of the phone having been damaged, but... Try swapping the battery for one from a friend's phone. If that cures the problem, you need to buy a new battery (they don't last forever). Otherwise, try charging the battery fully in a friend's phone using their charger, then see how long it lasts. If this lasts much longer, the problem is that the phone/charger combination isn't charging the battery properly. Mix and match chargers and handsets (mark which are yours before you start, or you will get mixed up) to identify where the problem lies. If the battery isn't old and tired, and the phone is charging it properly, then the problem must be that the phone is drawing excessive current. This could be because you've got it set up to do some power-hungry thing (backlight continuously on, playing MP3s or FM, promiscuously Bluetoothing or IR communicating, etc). Shut down all the functions you don't actually need at the time and see if that makes any different. Once you've eliminated all those, you're left with the liklihood that the phone has a fault which is making it draw excess current. Not good news, but at least you've eliminated all the other possibilities. A.
