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

Motorola Fire XT (XT530) charging problem .


Motorola FIRE XT Tips for extending battery life
Back to Previous Page

Are there any tips on how to extend the battery life?
Things you should know about charging your battery.

New batteries are not fully charged. Plug the battery charger into your phone and an electrical outlet. Your phone might take several seconds to start charging the battery.
Tips:
  • It may take several charging cycles for your battery to reach optimum performance.
  • The battery charger shipped with this device is designed specifically for Motorola mobile phones. Other chargers might take longer to charge your battery, or cause your calls to fail during charging.
  • You can charge your phone via USB cable but this charging time will vary based on computer specifications.
Tips to extend battery life:
  • Select a shorter backlight duration
  • Lower the display brightness
  • Use the AC adapter to charge your phone whenever possible
  • Turn Bluetooth off when not in use
  • Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use
  • Close any third party applications running in the background
  • Playing music, videos and viewing images in your phone will affect your battery life
General Battery use & safety
  • Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded batteries and chargers. The warranty does not cover damage caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers.

    Caution: Use of an unqualified battery or charger may present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. Improper battery use, or use of a damaged battery, may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
  • Your battery can be charged without it being fully depleted, and can be charged every day if desired.
  • Battery usage by children should be supervised.
  • Important: Motorola mobile devices are designed to work best with qualified batteries. If you see a message on your display such as Invalid Battery, Invalid Charger or Unable to Charge, take the following steps:
    • Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it bears a Motorola "Original Equipment" hologram;
    • If there is no hologram, the battery is not a qualified battery
    • If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry charging it
    • If the message remains, contact a Motorola Authorized Service Center
  • New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
  • Charging precautions: When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature. Never expose batteries to temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when charging. Always take your mobile device with you when you leave your vehicle
  • When storing your battery, keep it in a cool, dry place.
  • It is normal over time for battery life to decrease, and for the battery to exhibit shorter runtime between charges or require more frequent or longer charging times. Motorola batteries are designed to last between 350-700 charge/discharge cycles at room temperature. This amounts to approximately a year to a year and a half of battery use for most people.
  • Avoid damage to battery and mobile device. Do not disassemble, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, shred, or submerge the battery or mobile device. Avoid dropping the battery or mobile device, especially on a hard surface. If your battery or mobile device has been subjected to such damage, take it to a local service center before using. Do not attempt to dry it with an appliance or heat source, such as a hair dryer or microwave oven.
  • Use care when handling a charged battery-particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects. Contact with metal objects (such as jewelry, keys, beaded chains) could complete an electrical circuit (short circuit), causing the battery to become very hot, which could cause damage or injury.

Razr V3M and get invalid charger. I am using the same charger that came with the phone though it is a new battery.


The problem sounds like your phone problem. How old are both the phoen and charger. Who is your carrier. Depending on the carrier you may be able to get the phone replace. If you have are ready purchase a new battery and it is still saying invalid charger more and likely it is the phone. Clean the battery connections with a toothbrush. Also Use can air to blow out the dirt in the charging port. Clean these areas out very well and you should be find. If not contact motorola and have them send you a replacement. If your still getting a invaild charger. You may even be able to get them to send you a charger.

Invalid battery..


There is too much going on here. For starters, you should only be using Motorola accessories IE batteries, chargers, screen protectors. Now that you have done this, you have actually confused the phone, it is a "smart phone" and because of this, it is able to identify the different battery/charger. You have to send this to Motorola of for a quick fix or buy a new phone.

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.
