Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3x Cellular Phone

1 Answer

AC charger does not charge, USB connection is not recognised, but 12V car charger works!

Over the past 2 weeks I have noticed the display sometimes says "Invalid Battery." I understand that if it is a genuine battery it may be a warranty issue, but if the warranty is 12 months, mine ran out 3 months ago.

The message has stopped showing up now, but now I cannot get the a/c charger or the USB connection to work. If both displays are off when I plug in the a/c charger, they light up in response, but nothing else happens.

My PC does not recognise that there is a link, nor does the handset 'respond' in any way to the cable being inserted.

Short of buying a new battery or upgrading the handset, are there any solutions?

Baffled.

Battery does not want to charge


Could be variable reasons -> If you're using generic brand chargers or charger adapter (these have various voltage settings on them and numerous tips for insertion into charging location on unit). This is often an issue with regular cell phones as well. If you don't use the same brand charger (or at the least, one of the reputable 3rd party manufacturers, ex: Belkin)...Most importantly, make sure the charger output matches input of the phone. If you're unsure, check you owners manual for specifications. Do the same for your charger specification. If it's quicker to use the internet. Search the net for your phone model. This also includes the info you need for the charger...Depending on the age of the battery and/or the tablet/e-reader. Again, there could be many variables

Hello, Leoch 12V battery, DJW12-12Ah, is no longer charging. We bought a John Deere riding toy at a local Toys R Us in Michigan three years ago. My children have only used it for two summers and is...


Sounds like a battery problem.
Lead acid batteries should to be charged every 3 or 4 months even if they are not being used, or they can slowly self-discharge and will start to deteriorate if the voltage drops below about 12.2v (for a 12v batt.)
They can then be difficult or impossible to charge. The charger can see this as fully charged and show green.
You can test for this if you have a voltmeter. You should be able to work out if it's the battery or a connection (or the charger).
Measure the battery voltage (use a DC voltage range greater than 12V). The normal voltages you should see:
A) Key off, no charger: >12v, <14
B) Key off, charger connected: >12, <14.2, but higher than A)
C) Key on, no charger: >12, <14, but lower than A)

If voltage A) is low and immediately goes high when the charger is connected then the battery needs replacing.
If A) and B) are exactly the same then it could be the charger is not connecting or is faulty. Measure the charger output, should be >13.8v (unless it's an "intelligent" charger in which case it might need some voltage applied to its output before it starts charging).

Note: If A) and B) are low, say <8v it's possible that an "intelligent" charger will refuse to start charging. In this case it's probably worth jumping the battery to a good 12v battery (e.g. car). Be very careful to connect the batteries (+) to (+) and (-) to (-). Leave connected for 10 - 20min or even overnight and then disconnect jumper leads and check A) and B) again. Sometimes a battery can be recovered by this method (it's unlikely to regain full capacity though).

Charging the mp3mp4 player


  1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
  2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
  3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

Magellan 1400 gps does not turn on when connected to car charger. Tried several times but in vain? can you let me know how to fix it?


well it may not be able to be solved without expense.
Do you have an AC charger? if so try to turn iot on when its been connected to the charger for about 10 mins if it comes on when on AC then you will need to change the internal battery/s other than tjhat the circuit is damaged
some models do not have AC chargers

if this is new or under warranty make a claim ASAP as they go out of models so quickly they have a poor warranty system
