Re: battery light

This is pretty common and not necessarily a problem. Red means that the battery is not completely charged. Since it was charging all night, it most likely almost fully charged - say 99% or so. It's not really an issue as long as your battery icon has all the bars and the phone holds the charge for a normal amount of time. If you find that the charge lasts for less time than it should, you should probably replace the battery. My phone, for example, does this every so often and then will charge normally the next day.

I have Xperia X 10 mini from Sony Ericsson. I left it charging overnight as I do every night since I've got it. And today when I woke up, I took the phone and instead of it being fully charged and

Chances are your phone got too hot during the night and overcharged the Lithium Ion battery. If those batteries are exposed to too much heat then they won't have the battery life they used to have. You need to purchase a replacement battery or contact your wireless carrier to see about getting another one.

How can I tell when my cell phone battery is beginning to run low?

The battery icon up at the top of your celfone screen turns red. Green means its full charged or half charged, yellow means it's 25% charged and red means you have to charge it already.

My blackberry 7290 is blinking red light, it don't turn on.

That means the battery requires charging. Charge your phone, the light will turn green, and it will then turn on.

Hi i have an experia ant the littli led light on the top stays on red all the time


The little red light means your battery requires charging.

Plug in the charger and allow it to charge.
It should change colour to orange when it has over 15% charge in it and then turns green when it is 90% charged.

If it still stays red dispite being fully charged. Try removing the battery for a few seconds and then replace it again.

I hope this helps.
If your phone is fully charged and it still has a red light, then take it back to the shop you acquired it and get a replacement.
It means you have a hardware fault.

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:-)

Brand new 8320 after his first night charging its not working

when you put the phone on the charger does it show a red light on the top of the phone?
if so your battery is dead, when the battery is charged the light turn green.
you may just have a bad battery. I would take it to where you got it and get another one or a new battery. also your charger could be not working

Removal of Battery Cover

have the newer I9 but same issue at first..but one answer is YES it should be red when charging. Next ques..My back was SO hard to get off i thought i was crazy at first. I had to use a sharp stek knife to CAREFULLY open it for the first 3-4 times but since that it opens and closes with ease but the first times it had to be pried open..but be careful--but eventually it will work just sliding it up and down.
