Re: Not charging even though i changed the connector as...

Perhaps a defective battery. I would go to the retailer that sold you the phone if it was recent and see if they can fix it for you. If not a battery is going to cost right around $80.

I have had this charging overnight but it won't charge. What should I do?

Hello Friend,
It depends on what you mean by charging overnight.
1. When you connect the charger, it shows on the phone that it's charging but after a while if you unplug the charger, it's still not charged: if it's the case, that means the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
2. When you connect the charger, it doesn't show the phone charging: in this case it can be the charger brocken or the phone charge connector is faulty. you can verify that by moving the charger connector a little bit and see if it will start charging, if not you can try with another charger. if it doesn't charge even with another charger, at this time i will say for sure that the phone charge connector is faulty and needs a repair.
Best Regards,

Discharge Battery

If it is within warranty, have them replace the unit. Are you using a wall charger or a trickle-charger such as the USB Cable? The wall charger is the only way to truly charge it to full.

If you are using a USB charger or other trickle charger, after the device says it is fully charged remove it from the charger for about 2 minutes and then reconnect it. It will then charge (most of) the rest of the way.

If you don't do this, the problems gets worse and worse. After 1 day, the trickle charger may get you up to a 90% charge. After two days, 80%, etc. After a week you'll only be holding half a charge, even though the device is reporting a full charge while on the charger.

Another tip I have found is to perform a soft-reset after removing it from the charger, particularly if it has been plugged in for a long time at full charge (more than an hour or so). It seems like the device doesn't always detect that it has been unplugged and tries to **** down juice as if it were still plugged in. If you have noticed that your device gets pretty hot when the battery drains quickly, this is probably what is happening to you.

You also haven't mentioned the programs that you are using during the day. Some programs, particularly chat clients, will drain the battery in about 5 hours, though obviously you're not using anything like this while in flight mode.

One more thing. You noted that you were told that leaving it on the charger whenever possible is the thing to do. This is incorrect. The more the battery is exercised in this way, the shorter the lifespan of the battery will be. With any mobile device we're all bound to charge it every night, but once it is charged you want to take it off the charger. A battery being fully charged is just as bad as a battery being fully drained, so you want to keep it somewhere in between as much as possible. __________________

My HTC p3300 battery not gettin charged. It works on direct power for some time and get automatically shutdown after some time..indicating no charge. Keeps shutting down often.

I too have been experiencing problems. Replaced the battery but it happened again. The battery says it is at almost 100% capacity however several times in the day, when I go to turn it on it doesn't respond. I end up taking the battery out and then have to connect it to a charger (USB) so that the charging light blinks red once and then turns off. I can then put in the battery again and it will start up again. If I don't connect it to the charger cable to drain (get the red light to flash once), and try just putting back in the battery, I've noticed that the screen has a faint glow as though it was on but the screen is completely blank. I'm starting to think that there must be a short circuit somewhere because I'm going to assume that the new battery is good.

Mio 168 not charging when using Car Charger

You have to have an ignition switch on, only then to connect a device. It is to protect device against an electric shock.

The T3 will appear dead until the battery has SOME charge. A totally dead battery, even though plugged into a charger, will not let the T3 turn on. You mention a previous charger problem. Could be a bad charger, or a bad battery. Check to see if the charging light is on on the T3 when you think you are charging. If it is not on, try another charger. If it is on, you may have a bad battery.

Palm LifeDrive not charging

I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

Why won't it charge??

I had a similar problem. I found that the charging port gets a little "stretched" after a while and the plug doesn't make contact the way it should when you insert it. I went and bout one of those universal chargers with the many different connectors and used one that is slightly larger in overall diameter with a slightly smaller hole. It worked fine after that. You can try wrapping the charger cord around the phone after you plug it in to see if it helps. It worked for me for a while but the charger plug eventually broke from fatigue. Hope this helps.

Casio E-100 didn't power up.

Try this Does the yellow light come on when you plug the charger in? If so, leave it charging for 2 hours, then do a hard reset while charger is still plugged in. I think, on E-100 it involves holding down Power button, while pressing reset button on the back of the unit with a stylus for a few seconds. Warning: you'll lose all your personal data on E-100 this way - but then again, it's probably lost already.
