    My LG 4010 charger lights up but has no charge to the phone. I have had this phone for years and never had this problem. I tried wiggling the charger ends, took the battery off of the phone to clean contacts, can't find the cause, wondering if the battery, whatever type it is just commonly does this if it goes dead, this is the original battery. How do you tell if the battery is ok?

    Having the same problem. When the phone is connected to the charger the light is red and it won't charge.

    The red light stays on and there is no response from the phone at all. Have tried different wall plug. Don't have a spare charger.

Almost certainly liquid damage to the lower part of the phone!

Depending on your skills, removing the back cover (the bottom lifts after removing the four screws and then you need to twist and tug the top to get the back off) and clean the bottom 1/4 of the phone using a toothbrush soaked in isopropyl alcohol. Then dry completely with hot air, a hair dryer will suffice.

10 out 10 non-charging KG-220 seem here in the last six months were all fixed using this method!

The classic indication is when plugging the charger into the switch on phone, the handset turns off.

I have also got the same problem. Bought a new battery thinking the old one was dead (because of the continuous red light), the new battery turned on initially, then i flatened the new battery fully a few days later.(the new battery charges when the phone is on and you plug in the charger). I tried to charge the battery and got the dreaded red light. I tried two different chargers, i also got the battery checked by a computer that the battery people that sold me it have in their shop. the battery was fine. if any one has a solution or a suggestion can you email me

Red blinking light

Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.
•With the Charger Plugged In
•Headset Indicator Headset Status
Red-----------------------------------------------Charging (battery level less than 50% charge)
Yellow-------------------------------------------Charging (battery level more than 50% charge)
Green--------------------------------------------Charging complete
With No Charger Plugged In
Headset Indicator Headset Status
Off ---------------------------------------------Power off
Three blue flashes------------------------Powering on/off
Steady blue --------------------------------Pairing/connect mode
Rapid blue/purple flashes -------------Connection successful
Quick blue flash --------------------------Incoming/outgoing call
Slow blue pulse --------------------------Connected (on a call)
Slow blue flash ---------------------------Standby (not on a call)
Slow red flash ----------------------------Idle (not connected to phone)
Slow purple pulse -----------------------Connected call muted
Steady red ---------------------------------Attempting to connect
Quick red flash ----------------------------Low battery

Note: After 20 minutes on a call or of inactivity, the light stops flashing to conserve power, but the headset remains on

Hope that'll help you in some way.

Bluetooth is plugged into charger but keeps flashing red light, dont know if its charging or not

I had the same issue -- charged it for days and still red light flashing. I was ready to break it open and see if I could replace battery. Then I looked on the opposite end of the charger and seen a little round hole thingy. I put the end of a pen in there and pushed it twice and -- the red light went away . Plugged the charge in and steady red then purple and now blue. Looks like that is a reset ..Try it -- it worked for mine.

How do I know when an EN-EL! for the Nikon Coolpix 5000 is fully charged? what do the following conditions indicate? 1. Charger red light flashing 2. charger red light steady 3. charger red light...

Charger flashing red indicates the battery is still not full and is in the process of recharging.
Red light steady indicates your battery is fully charged and ready to operate with your Coolpix 5000.
When red light is off it indicates there is no battery inserted or the charger is not pluged in.

Battery charger flashing red light

Clean contact points of both battery and charger with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. This solved my problem with blinking lights and not charging of the batteries.

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c

I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

W850i red light prob

When it is red light of death, it either means the bootloader of the phone is faulty (after uploading dodgy firmware updates), or the battery is too empty to start-up, let alone display charging progress. In your case you need to leave the phone charging even with the red light flashing and it will be fine. Give it a few hours connected to the charger.
