The other car charged you had it in most likely supplied too much voltage, and the over voltage has ruined the unit, the same thing happens with any device you give too much voltage to, it either blows up or stops working.
you will have to either purchase another unit or you will be looking at a major repair bill.
As for repairing this at home, its hard to tell how much or how many components have blown out due to too high voltage being supplied.

Black to black (hot), Green to green (ground) and the only one left is of course white to blue. The (neutral) white wire can be many different flavors (blue, red, orange, brown, etc.).

If the outlet your plugging into (or controlled by the service panel breaker) is 15 Amps use a minimum of 14 gage wire (or 12 gage is even better), if its a 20 Amp outlet use 12 gage wires (or 10 gage). Don't use a 16 or 18 gage wire because it may get hot and start a fire because its undersize for the Amps.

My motorola defy shows a white light when i plug in the charger but the screen only says LoadBoot. 09.10 and Cannot program battery low.... doesnt the white light mean its charging? I've tried taking out...


If you bought it from a specific company be it thru internet or site store take it to the providers site store and if there is no water damage and item is less 1 year old factory warranty covers the phone and if you got an extended warranty they should replace it in the the store, but with factory warranty they will mail you a new one (with the exclusion of the battery) and you will have to return the old one thru the USPS at their charge.

Hope that was helpful if I can help further let me know. Please rate/vote or testify to my advice.

The screen turned white for about an hour, does not come on


try the reset first (little pin hole on the side) using a paper clip, hold it in for 10-15 seconds. if that fails, plug in your charger and charge for awhile the press and hold the power button for upto 15 seconds till it starts. it sounds like you might have multiple problems. the screen going white normally indicates a bad screen but might just need reseated (ribbon cable)..try what i suggested first, if none of those work, let me know and we will see what else we can do.

I have a cat5 wire. I put your data phone jaack RJ45 on one end. I put your male plug on the other. On the tester, on the input it goes 12345678 on the wall jack it goes87654321 . Wall jack is wired to...


You accidentally flipped the cap over backwards when you were putting the male plug on. If you are using 568B standard that starts with orange/white and ends it brown...make sure that if the orange white is on the left, then the clip on the plug is facing away from you.

Most likey its not worth fixing. Look at it like this. While it may have only been 6 volts versus 5. One volt in a 5 volt system is a 20 percent increase.
If you took something that ran on 120 volts and plugged it into a 144 volt source you can figure the damage that would do.
