Most likely yes, try taking the battery all the way out and putting it back in. Also, allow the battery to drain completely and then charge from there. If it never gets a chance to drain completely this can cause problems.

If after these two steps it still isn't holding a charge then you will need a new battery.

Thanks

Get my galaxy s to stop saying nonsupported battery


Drain the battery completely... Reset your phone. Often this fixes the problem but its likely your battery is weak and it won`t hold a charge for long. If it was not holding a charge well before this happened then i recommend just buying a new battery.

Uniden battery will not charge


If the recharageable 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% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Phone randomly shuts off and battery won't stay charged.


Hi, It sounds like your battery can't hold a charge which is common with rechargeable batteries after a certain amount of time. The only solution to that is to buy a new battery unfortunately.

Hi k750i,phone works perfect but won,t hold a charge for long,even with new batteries. thank you


Before you change the battery:
  1. Charge the battery fully
  2. Discharge the battery fully
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
If the battery does not reset itself and start lasting longer then you do need to replace it.

If that does not work the phone will require repair of the leads from the charger to the battery or the battery to the phone
