Batteries must be stored on a full charge. For extended periods they should be disconnected. If your batteries are flat/dead the charger will not attempt to charge them. You should remove your batteries and check and try to charge them individually. Sometimes they will come alive, must of the time they won't. Charge them individually with a 12 volt 2 amp charger - no higher; or in series with a 24 volt 4 amp charger.
Some of these chargers are automatic to the point of aggravation. They will only operate when they are connected to a battery with at least a small residual charge. Not sure if this charger is one of those. Try hooking it up to a known good battery. It that works, and you are trying to charge a dead battery, first use jumper cables from a good battery to the dead one for a few minutes. Then hookup your charger to the dead battery. That should give it enough charge to prime the charger into working, and you could then remove the jumper cables.---- but be careful!!! wear safety goggles.
I wonder if you attached the right voltage of charger. Thats what I did. I put on a 9v dc charger Now my v570 is dead......but ironically it will still charge a battery. Now an expensive battery charger!
Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.
Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.
COULD BE THE PHONE BUT MOST LIKELY ITS THE CHARGER, IF ITS AFTERMARKET GET RID OF IT AND BUY OEM, TRY AND TEST IT OUT WOULD A FREINDS MOTOROLA CHARGER SINCE THEY'RE MOSTLY THE SAME CHARGERS AND SEE IF YOU STILL GET THE MESSAGE.
