Question about Motorola Mobility i836 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Motorolai836 i went to charge my phone and it said invalid battery??? It is a year old and has had the same battery all this time. So I unhooked the charger and blew into the connections, thought maybe they were dusty. Then I plugged it in and it reads incompatible charger. I tried a different charger and same thing. Also tried a new battery. NOTHING. HELP! This phone is only a year old and is carried in my puse so it really has never been dropped. I only use about 50 mins a month. Should this really be quitting on me already????

It's the mini coin cell battery in the rear housing. You must take it to a service center

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.

try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

Deadphone after recharging, message says

try use a good battery. if it does not work, try check on the connecting pins on the battery connector of your cellphone. if still a problem, try disassemble the cellphone to check the battery interface on your cellphone, clean both connector and the interface of your cellphone... if still a problem, best to repair it to a nearest cellphone technician...

Battery went dead

Most likely you have a bad battery you can check by taking out the battery and feeling on it if it is flat than its good if it has a bump on it than it is no good.

Charge battery

Is your 2 year contract still in warranty? My 2 year contract is up and since then I have been having trouble. I think they just want me to sign another contract. Which I refuse to do. I had no trouble for two years. They (Verizon) do not want you to go without a contract. Am I just being paranoid? I don't think so.

Invalid Battery

Totally discharging the battery is the way to go. But what you can also do to use your phone in the meantime is this. Plug your charger into the phone withOUT your battery in. It will tell you "Unable to Charge." When it says this, put the battery in. It might tell you "Invalid Battery" a couple more times, but it did eventually say "Charging Battery" for me. After that, simply turn the phone on and it will return to normal. This is when you drain the battery completely. Once I did that, I did not get the invalid battery error again.
