Question about Motorola Mobility W315 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Motorola W315 My Motorola W315 will not charge. It ran out of battery and when I went to charge it, it would not recognize the charger. I used my charger on someone else's and it worked absolutely fine. I just got a new battery last month. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    The battery on my w315 went dead, so i went to charge it as usual, and it would not charge all of a sudden. I purchased another battery, and it still would not charge, what could the problem be?

(If you are charging you phone inside your house) First make sure you have power to the receptacle you are using. test this by plugging in a lamp or radio into the receptacle you will be using.

I own the same phone and I have found that the phone has a small rubber cover that goes over the charging port. It's hinged but I found that it has to be removed in order to charge it because the charger can't connect securely with the rubber cover on the phone.

(If your are using a mobile charger) I have observed that my phone has a short in the mobile charger also and changes the ring tone after I charge it. My phone rings 1/2 of the time and I have found that this is a fault of the mobile phone charger. It charges the phone w/o any problem but the connection from the mobile charger is loose. This shorts out something inside the phone and changes my ring tone automatically.

Motorola FIRE XT Tips for extending battery life
Back to Previous Page

Are there any tips on how to extend the battery life?
Things you should know about charging your battery.

New batteries are not fully charged. Plug the battery charger into your phone and an electrical outlet. Your phone might take several seconds to start charging the battery.
Tips:
  • It may take several charging cycles for your battery to reach optimum performance.
  • The battery charger shipped with this device is designed specifically for Motorola mobile phones. Other chargers might take longer to charge your battery, or cause your calls to fail during charging.
  • You can charge your phone via USB cable but this charging time will vary based on computer specifications.
Tips to extend battery life:
  • Select a shorter backlight duration
  • Lower the display brightness
  • Use the AC adapter to charge your phone whenever possible
  • Turn Bluetooth off when not in use
  • Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use
  • Close any third party applications running in the background
  • Playing music, videos and viewing images in your phone will affect your battery life
General Battery use & safety
  • Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded batteries and chargers. The warranty does not cover damage caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers.

    Caution: Use of an unqualified battery or charger may present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. Improper battery use, or use of a damaged battery, may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
  • Your battery can be charged without it being fully depleted, and can be charged every day if desired.
  • Battery usage by children should be supervised.
  • Important: Motorola mobile devices are designed to work best with qualified batteries. If you see a message on your display such as Invalid Battery, Invalid Charger or Unable to Charge, take the following steps:
    • Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it bears a Motorola "Original Equipment" hologram;
    • If there is no hologram, the battery is not a qualified battery
    • If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry charging it
    • If the message remains, contact a Motorola Authorized Service Center
  • New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
  • Charging precautions: When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature. Never expose batteries to temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when charging. Always take your mobile device with you when you leave your vehicle
  • When storing your battery, keep it in a cool, dry place.
  • It is normal over time for battery life to decrease, and for the battery to exhibit shorter runtime between charges or require more frequent or longer charging times. Motorola batteries are designed to last between 350-700 charge/discharge cycles at room temperature. This amounts to approximately a year to a year and a half of battery use for most people.
  • Avoid damage to battery and mobile device. Do not disassemble, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, shred, or submerge the battery or mobile device. Avoid dropping the battery or mobile device, especially on a hard surface. If your battery or mobile device has been subjected to such damage, take it to a local service center before using. Do not attempt to dry it with an appliance or heat source, such as a hair dryer or microwave oven.
  • Use care when handling a charged battery-particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects. Contact with metal objects (such as jewelry, keys, beaded chains) could complete an electrical circuit (short circuit), causing the battery to become very hot, which could cause damage or injury.

My cell phone died and now it wont charge!!!! :'(


It won't turn on because battery is too low. Another benefit of lithium ion batteries. When they are depleted, the internal controller / charge circuitry on battery disables it.

You didn't mention what kind of phone other than Motorola. If it has a USB connector to charge through, make sure that you are using a motorola approved charger. There is a way to make the USB connectors (charger side) indicate a particular class and rating. If this doesn't match what the phone expects, then you will likely get a Cannot Charge message or similar.

That being said, this usually only happens with AC wall chargers. I have yet to see it happen with a vehicle charger, though I don't rule it out.

My phone won't turn on/charge?


My husband's w315 is doing the same. This phone is a replacement sent to us because the original w315 I purchased for him had a problem with the screen. (It went blue and never displayed another thing!) When we rec'd this replacement, it worked fine until we had to charge it. They don't send a new battery with the replacements, you have to use the one out of your original phone. Soooooooo, back to the battery/charging problem. We have been to our local Cellular South store, and been given 3 new batteries & 1 new charger. Guess what.......the problem is still there!!!! We have now been instructed to file a warranty claim on this replacement w315 that we rec'd to replace our original w315!!!!!! I've gone to Motorola's web-site for help, but help I did not find. Thus.....here I am! Personally speaking, I'm not a fan of the w315.
