Question about Nokia 6630 Handheld

1 Answer

Battery won't charge in the phone

My trusty Nokia 6630 has thrown a bit of a wobbly and won't charge any more. I can charge the battery OK by resting it's contacts against the contacts of my other Nokia, a 6280, and then put it back in the 6630 and it works fine. When I plug the charger in, either the mains one or the car charger, I get the message "Not charging" with a phone icon with a red cross on it. Also the charging bars go back to zero when the charger is plugged in, althought they revert to normal once the charger is removed. This all started a couple of days ago when the phone rang and immediately switched off as the low battery warning had been beeping for about half an hour and the phone ringing must have taken the last bit of power from the battery. I plugged it into the charger but was maybe a bit impatient waiting for it to start up again as it seemed rather sluggish accepting my PIN code, so I switched it off before it had completed doing this and when I switched it on again it had this fault. I would be very grateful if anyone could advise on how to cure this problem. Do I need to make a backup and do a hard reset or reinstall the firmware? If so how do I go about doing that?

System might be damanged,

You can hard reset the phone (Factory Settings)
This will reinstall the operating system inside the phone back to how it first was.
(internal memory gets formatted then the rom reloads the os back)
(Solves all kinds of problems.)

Switch the phone "OFF"
Hold "3" (button) + "Green Call" (button) + "*" (star button)
Switch the phone "ON" while holding the above three buttons.
Continue holding for about 20 seconds then let go.

Please note this will format all the saved information stored in phone memory. including phonebook numbers (if not stored on SIM card).
Try to make backups first.
You have been "Warned".

Best of Luck.

From what I read, I can conclude that your battery is old and needs to be replaced. Contact a Nokia Care center and purchase another battery unit.

Hard Format it, It doesnt require Lock Code.

Turn off ur device. Press 3 buttons, Green (Call), * , and 3 Simultaneously and then Switch on the Device holding the 3 buttons still. . .dont leave it for 3 mins or so. Without MMC

And Format MMC in Card Reader.
