Question about Motorola Mobility MOTORIZR Z3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Charging problems My rizr won't charge properly. When I plug the charger in, it flashes "charging battery" and the green charging symbol on the top left lights up. I tried to charge it overnight, but the battery meter was still at zero after I woke up. After saying that its charging, the green charging symbol turns off and the screen turns white.Then it repeats the whole process of flashing "charging battery." Things I've done recently: Set up a new bluetooth headset with the phone Switched chargers with my dad (he has the same phone as me)

Re: charging problems

Have you tried your dads battery in your phone it sounds like the battery is dead if your charger works on your dads phone then you know it not the charger the chances are it is the battery it would only be the phone if it has been dropped or got wet if this hasnt happened then the problem is the battery if your dads battery is the same then try charging his batt through your phone that way you would know if it was phone or battery.

If you take the phone into any phone shop they will test the phone and battery for free for you they can try the battery and also try a new battery in your phone and they will tell you if it is phone or battery but from my experiance it is going to be the battery let me know how you get on ok

Hi, leave your phone down with the charger plugged in for about 15 mins, don't try to turn it on...only after 15 mins. I hope this helps :)

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.

1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.

Hi i have a 8220 and red light is blinking on charging. I have checked very possible thing even the charger but cant get around pls help! thanks

Please don't worry this is caused because of various reasons.The lights explains what could be the problem

Orange and Yellow lights mean no defects in the mobile.Orange is phone battery is very low.Yellow is for boot up..

Red light means-You have power management problem.
You have to understand why it is being caused..

1)Due to dead battery.The phone will charge but you phone battery will not get charged it acts like it is getting charged.Behind the scene it cant store the charge.
2)Due to charger is not working properly no charge in the battery.

So you have replace this accordingly..

Please try this some time phone booting may be stopped,
This is not a solution when the battery is dead or fully down....

Sometimes The boot cycle of the phone is stopped.You have to start it.Remove the battery and place it again and press the red 'end' button continuously until the red light flashing stays on.Press green button' call' button and hold the red button...Now press these two buttons alternatively until you see hour glass symbol.Now when you see hour glass wait and see the phone booting....

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

When charging the phone, the battery icon flashes off and on and the phone make a sound is it charging properly

it is not supposed to make any sound when charging, if it does it means there is a problem somewhere.
it is not charging properly. try to turn off the phone and plug the charger. its supposed to bring up a light the show the battery meter and show it charging bar by bar, if it doesn't come up this way, try using the same charger on another phone to see if the charger is working. anything you detect, try to replace the battery and try again.

No sign of phone charging

I finally have spoken to a very nice youn guy from Sonim Tech Support. He fixed my problem of the phone not turning on.

1. Take out the battery, plug in the mains charger and leave for a few minutes (they say 10 but it took my phone a couple of hours).

2. Eventually the charging symbol will come on the screen, either stady or flashing.

3. Immediately put the battery in the carcass (while it is still connected to the charger), and the charging symbol should stay on.

4. Leave the phone for a couple of hours, disconnect the charger, and the phone should turn on as normal.

This was explained to me, the reason for not turning on was that the software had crashed. This solved it.

Motorola Z3 Rizr won't turn on

when you plug in the charger cable to your phone, make sure that you allow it to charge at least 2 hours, if your phone shuts off immediately after this amount of time, you likely need a new battery, they will wear out after a certain number of recharge cycles.. contact your motorola distributer or motorola website to purchase a replacement. Note do not accept "Non-Motorola Batteries or chargers as these are not guaranteed to provide the proper current necessary to safely recharge your battery, if you notice the battery getting Hot, then disconnect the charger immediately and let it cool, before removing and disposing. Remember it is normal for the battery to be warm to touch while charging or the phone itself is in use. but if it gets hot to the touch this is not normal, and the battery needs replaced..

Battery charging problem

Seems like it may be your wall charger.
I would inspect your connectors (both charger & phone) as well though (for dirt or debris).
I would also suggest using Motorola's wall chargers, the products seem to charge best with them rather than the after-market knock-offs which also seem to damage the phones connectors on some models.
