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?

Charge the phone at least overnite. Sometimes a replacement phone may arrive with a totally dead battery and the charger may not be able to put out enough current to operate the phone and charge it at the same time. If you want it to charge faster use a plug in charger with an output rating of 2 amps. They usually have 2 USB outputs and can charge two devices at the same time. If you only charge one device it's a piece of cake for the charger. .
First Option: mostly nokia chargers doesn't make problems... just try the following.. connect ur mobile with a system (usb cable)... found out whether it is charging or not... if the same prblm appears then there is a prblm in ur cell phone or power jack(socket)... if it charged with usb cable buy a new charger Please change Phone Bettery and check the charging IF Charging Problem not Solved So
Second Option: Your Phone charging IC Fault So Please change charging IC And charging Problem will Solved Quickly

you should just do white to white and ref to red. just so you should know that ac chargers have a special crossover that the phone knows it is charging not usb' ing to a computer so you may get message on the phone to go into usb mode...just hot home and you well be fine
Ever looked at the power specifications of a mobile charger?? well if
not, then have a peek... u will read that the output voltage is 5V
DC........ the computer USB also has a voltage output of 5V
DC........... any USB based electronic device needs this power to get
started.... The laptop coolers u get basically work on this power from
the USB... U'll notice that the USB ports have 4 terminals.... the
extreme outer side are the POWER terminals +ve and -ve..... the middle 2
are the BUS lines IN and OUT.... a BUS is something electric conductive
that allows the flow of 0's and 1's or rather high and low voltages to
pass(Basic IT theory).... so this 5V DC can be used for doing anything;
charging the mobile phone battery to lighting up entire rooms with
LED's, making laptop coolers, etc......... Every mobile phone which has
the USB connectivity option gets charged when plugged in... so sometimes
even if u dont have the Mobile charger dont panic, find a computer and
plug in the USB... not only micromax x225 mobile but, there are almost 80% mobiles which
charge by connecting it to pc. Only nokia phones don't get charged. it
is a good feature don't worry
Did spill the yogurt on the phone, or on the charger?
What happend when you plugged in the charger, specifically? Did your phone turn off, if not, were there any changes on the display, did the battery bars blink?
Also, if this is your AC charger for inside your home, do you have a car charger and have you tried it? If your car charger works, or if you are able to borrow someone's charger and IT works, then YOUR charger needs to be replaced. Best Buy, Wal Mart Electronic dept,or Staples, Office Depot, all these retail outlets sell replacement AC and DC ( 12v battery ) chargers. Cellphone chargers are notoriously easy to break, its not unusual to have to replace it during the life of any given phone.
You could try wiggling the connector, and watching the display to see if you have intermittent contact. Most of the ones I've had to replace were like that. They would only work if I pushed in the connector, or held it a certain way. If I just hooked it up and left it, it would not make a connection to the juice. Watch the display closely as your wiggling. You are looking to see if the display light up, or the battery bars to blink. If you can see it connect, even intermittently, you know your phone, and its ability to charge is okay,
Motorola provides a USB driver for just charging the W370. I installed it using the installation instructions from the Motorola website, but it just wouldn't work. The USB driver would install but would not activate (error Type 10). The W370 said that it could not charge. I recommend not bothering with this device driver, at least not with Windows XP.
However, I did figure out how to get the W370 charging from a USB port by trial and error. It's a pretty simple process.
1. Before plugging in the USB cable, turn on the W370 and wait for it to fully boot.
2. Connect the phone to the USB port of the computer.
3. When the phone asks "Connect phone as storage Device?", press the phone's left soft key, choosing "YES".
4. The phone will say "Please Wait...... Connecting Phone as Storage Device"
5. Eventually, the phone will display a white screen with the message, "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done."
6. Flip the phone closed. The yellow battery indicator will be lit. The phone is charging.
You'll note that the computer will see the W370 as a storage device with around 512 Megabytes of free memory, with empty "picture" and "sound" directories. The W370 appears to be a generic mass storage device to the computer. No special device driver is needed to charge the W370!
i have noticed that the mini plug for the charger and usb connection on RAZR V3 is sometimes sloppy. when the phone is charging it will definitely say battery charging on the external display and also flash the battery icon. i also noticed that the plug for the wall outlet is touchy. make sure the plug is secure in the wall outlet make sure the mini plug is secure in the phone gently wiggle these connections if you have to till you get the battery charging message if there are any connection problems there will be a unable to charge message instead.
i dont think that this will help much, but mine said that the very first time i charged mine ( with the brand new charger it came with!!! ) and it still says that occassionally. but then the notice goes away , and it charges my phone.
