    Naw the battery is new. Let me go into detail on the troubles with my phone....

    Alright a couple months ago the charger i bought stopped working... My brother tried to fix the charger and when i plugged the phone up the phone read "UNABLE TO CHARGE" after that i bought a new charger, and the phone would not even attempt to charge at all...

    I started to use a completely different L7 phone to charge the battery and I would just switch the battery once it was completely charged back and fourth to my regular phone...

    After that old battery was warped and clearly needed to be replaced i went and bought a new one. The lady used a charger at the metro store and it suddenly started charging, but when i used my charger at home it again wouldn't charge at all...

    So then i stuck a pen inside of the phone charger slot pushed up, and tried to charge the phone again... IT SUDDENLY STARTED CHARGING and everything was cool.

    Just now i tried to charge my phone and when i put the charger in it wouldn't charge so i stuck the pen in again, and it said charging... but the signal would not blink...

    So does that mean the phone is just busted?

    Damn... I just put the battery in a different phone and Its charging like its suppose to. The signal is blinking and all... So the charge slot or whatever is indeed busted... UGH. But if i continue to charge the battery on that phone will it blow up my battery?

It could mean you have to replace the battery?

    Well I would think so, it is most likely a dry joint on the board and when you push the pen in (kludge!) it engages but not sufficiently to allow a flow. It may also have taken a resisitor out that regulates the input.

    However let me run this by you, if the battery became totally flattened it may not blink until a reasonable amount of power has been accumulated, it then goes into trickle mode ( blink) If you are sure the battery is not completely flat having done a charge on another unit then think dry joint or damaged charge pin

    Not as long as the rating of amps is the same and the pin polarity is the same Most chargers have a pic showing whether its center + ve or Neg . Watch that the battery dosnt overheat on the otjher charger if its not the riht rating it will cook it.

Overheating L7

It can be due to the battery getting warm while the phone is used continuously or when the charger is connected for charging the battery. It is possible that a poor battery can heat up when the current is drained.
If the phone by itselt is heating it can also be due to shunting due to poor signal strength or connectivity as the phone HUNTS for the signal therby working with a higher output.

Maybe your battery needs to be charged. If you tried that, then the battery is probably dead and you have to buy a new one. Maybe the battery is old too.

Digimax i5 problem charging battery

■ Charging LED 

Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging is complete

● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.

If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.

Battery not holding the charge

freakie - so after all that why have you not try using a new charger.

Guest - well it should not but remember that if you are not getting a strong enough signal the battery will use up more trying to pull a maybe you spots are not strong signal areas but if that is not the so then change the battery if the same problem occur then have the phone exchange but hopefully you have already notify the store you purchased the mobile from about this issue., so this would make it much easier for you to have an exchanged.

Motorla Slvr L7 Won't hold charge

It depends on how much talking your doing. The Slvr is known for its low talk-time battery power. My slvr would last about 3 to 4 days on a charge, unless i was talking on it a lot. sometimes i would be charging it every other day. So it really all depends on the talk-time. Invest in a car charger for sure.

Motorola RAZR V3 No signal (bars)

I had the same problem with my phone- i got a cheap generic battery to replace the old one (which wasn't holding a charge for a full day, at that) and then i lost all signal, basically. I tried what scm_pa said he did - charged my old battery up, with the phone off, till the charge was complete- turned the phone on, and voila, reception!
