    I got a new battery and a new charge and the battery still won't charge. Is there any way to fix this? I don't want to have to buy a new phone!

    Hey jry,

    Would you be able to take a picture of the bottom connector for me? I would like to see if there are any signs of foreign material on the bottom.

    Sometimes, cleaning with the connector with contact cleaner causes more dust and dirt to stick to the contacts. You might need a firm toothbrush to help get the debris off.

Batteries won't charge


There are a few reasons why a battery won't charge. Make sure that the contacts on the phone and the charging cradle are clean. (Unplug the base or charger.) A pencil eraser is good initial cleaner; electronic contact cleaner sprays are a second option. Remove the battery and check the contacts inside the handset and the battery as well. Next replace the battery pack. If you add a comment with your phone's model number, then I can try to find the correct battery. (Stores like Battery Mart may have a compatible battery.)

The final possible problem is that the charging system is bad. If your phone has multiple handsets, try a different charger. If the phone allows you to add handsets, try getting a new handset. The new handset will come with a new charger. (I've never seen the chargers sold without the handset but you could try Uniden customer service. If the base station is the only handset cradle, you'll probably need to replace the phone if a new battery and clean contacts don't work.

If your Uniden phone is under warranty, contact the company.

I hope this helps.

Charging error


That means that the phone charger is sending an incorrect voltage to the phone, or that there had been a contact on phone charger connector.

To start check the connector at the base of the phone, where you hook up the charger.

If there is dirt or oxide in there remove it, you can clean it using cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol.

If that does not solve the problem, go to any phone shop and buy a replacement AC charger for $10 or less.

You can temporarily restart charging by unplugging and plugging back the charger, but on the long run this can damage the phone.

AT&T PROBLEM


Try your SIM card in another phone. If it still doesn't work then you need a new SIM card. If the SIM card works then try cleaning your contacts by rubbing them lightly with a clean pencil eraser. Ensure all your contact pins are straight and in a uniform position.

Car kit mode???


The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.

Motorola E815 - Battery Charger


I had the same problem but for some reason was able to use one of those Energizer battery chargers but no others!! I took it to Verizon and they cleaned the pins. Try using a toothbrush to clean it. That worked for awile then stopped. I took it to them againa and since it was still under warranty, they gave me a new one!

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off


Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
