How can I retrieve contact numbers from my fone that has discharged and wont charge


My phone died and now won't power on or charge. Here's how to fix it. Did your mobile phones battery drain all the way to zero and now your device is completely dead, not powering on or not even letting you charge it? This article will go through some tips on how you might be able to revive your dead phone.
If your cell phone is a smartphone then this is a reasonably common issue. It used to be a general practice to run older batteries to zero battery life before charging them back up to full again but try not to do that on the new smart phones, they use lithium-ion batteries which discharging 100% is a major concern and isn't good for the health of the battery.

If your battery has drained to zero and now the phone won't respond then try this

Pull the battery Start out by pulling the battery out of the phone for a few minutes then put the battery back into the phone, put the phone all back together and then plug it into your ORIGINAL charger that came with the phone. Make sure that you use the original charger that came with the phone. If you don't have the original charger then make sure that your charger is a manufacturer approved charger. If your battery is built into the phone and you cannot remove the battery from your smartphone then try to perform a simulated battery pull. Many phones have a method to restart the device, usually by holding down specific buttons or keys on the device. Much like the Motorola Atrix HD simulated battery pull or the Sony Experia simulated battery pull where you hold the volume down key and power key simultaneously while the phone is powered off.
Check the outlet Sometimes we can be too close to an issue and can overlook something as simple as a wall outlet attached to a light switch that's turned off. If the light switch is designed for turning off and on a light and the switch is off then there is no power coming from the outlet and obviously your device isn't going to charge.
Try a different outlet This can go hand in hand with the above suggestion. Try a different outlet to make sure it's not a power socket issue.
Try using a computer or car charger Using a computer or car charger instead of a wall charger can sometimes put a quick charge on your battery and get it to respond as well. Keep charging it If you have tried these methods and your phone isn't responsive due to its battery being drained 100% then it can be difficult to get your phone to charge again. Try charging it for at LEAST a couple hours on an outlet you know to be working, even all night if possible. Lithium ion batteries can take a while to get to charge again if drained all the way. So try charging it for a while, You might need a new battery If you try these tips and suggestions or have tried all these things already and there is still no response, and your phone is completely dead and will not recognize a charger then you might need to try another battery.
Try a different charger If you have tried a different battery then make sure you try your original charger first, as mentioned above. If there is no response then it might not be your battery but your charger that has malfunctioned and might need replacing. If you have any spare chargers try those to see if you can get a charge out of your phone. Replace the device If you have tried a different battery and a different charger and your phone is still little more than a paper weight then you should start reviewing your phone replacement

When I attempt to charge my moto q via an power outlet or car charger the charge powers the phone but not the battery. when I attempt to charge it by computer it there is normally a 30% chance it will...


I have the same problem with my iPhone. The only real way and best way to get a charge on a phone is through a wall charger. Car chargers and computer/usb to charge doesn't actually do anything but "top off" the battery. They don't produce enough power to give the batter a strong charge like the wall can.
That's my best advice. Charge from the wall when at home. Use the car to top off when your on the go.

Charging problem


If your phone won't charge via your computer using a USB cable or via your pickup via a car charger, will it charger via the regular travel charger (i.e., plugged into the wall)? If it won't charge that way either, then the issue is with the connection or with the battery. If you replace the battery and it still doesn't charge, then the problem is with the connection. If this is the issue, then I would suggest replacing your phone, especially if it is 2 years or older. If it is a new phone and under 12 months old, then I would suggest getting a warranty replacement from your provider. If it is older, and you don't want to replace it, then try gettin a new battery, however, if it still doesn't charge, then like I said previously, it is the connection and it would be less expensive to replace the phone then to repair the connection. Hope this helps and let me know if you need any additional information.

Good Luck
