Re: k800i wont hold charge

There is only really three possible solutions to this:

Firstly replace the phone expensive so is it really worth it?

Sencondly again expensive, send the phone away for repair.
This will vary in cost greatly depending on who deals with it and what the problem is.

Lastly- You are going to need to try and clean the contacts on the phone. If the contacts are badly worn or oxidized etc, then the connection will not create a circuit. Use a pin or bent paper clip to gently remove dirt from around the contacts and to gently score the surface of the connectors to create clean metal between the charger and phone.

Good luck with this one as the last method is not that reliable.

If it was not charging before and you replaced the battery and charger, then the charging circuit has most likely failed possibly a DC/DC converter. Probably terminal I'm afraid

My sony ericsson k800i wont turn on and will not charge. i have check the battery and the charger and they both in working order. so i'm thinking the must be sumthing wrong with the hardware on the phone...

It is possible the charge port has gone bad. It happens unfortunately.

You have a few options.

1. get it repaired. Runs about 60 dollars or so
2. get a new one
3. get a external battery charger and extra battery so you have one charging all the time. This is about 10 dollars.

Take a look at the following link for more information and links to the the options listed above

Battery discharge

You can do that or take the phone and have it diagnosed to see if it can be fixed or if you need to buy a new mobile.....

IF you have your BT on constantly that would also contribute for lots of battery usage.

Sony ericsson k800i

we will approach the problem this way
1) your battery might be the culprit , first charge your battery in a different piece, and then replace ans see.
2) if the above doesnt solve the problem clean the connectors of the battery that shiny golden part of both your battery and mobile piece , with nail p[olish remover or alcohol.
3) last resort now will have to open the piece and check for the on/off switch .
4)lastly software reflashing, but if the piece aint detecting, need to clean the datacable connectors with nail polish remover or alcohol.

the above should bring your pice to life.
