    both. The orange light will blink the instant I plug it in, then goes out immediately.

The orange light going on when plugged in then immediately turning off again is usually a battery issue, try cleaning up the contacts on both the battery compartment and the battery itself, use either a cotton bud and a dab of white spirit (or any other alcohol based solvent) or scratch them to a shine with a sharp blade.

If that doesnt work buy yourself a new battery, they are very cheap on ebay... if you want to be sure its the battery see if you can borrow someone elses battery just to test if that solves it.

Get back to me with your findings and if what I suggest doesnt resolve your issue I will continue to help until we sort it out.

Jabra wave battery suddenly won't charge


The battery may be shot and incapable of charging. The red light could be merely indicating that the charger is working.

Tip

I found another fix.  I didn't have any lights and a dead battery, even when...


Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.
****WARNING****
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK WIRE TO TOUCH EACH OTHER
****WARNING****

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

Peter

My H15 suddenly powered down, and it won't come back on. I don't know what the problem might be. Is there a way to reset it or something?


Have you shut off your bluetooth through your phone settings? Try that and even disconnecting altogether, then adding again. Keep it charging and make sure the lights all come on for charging and when turning on your set. Let me know what happens at this point

Blackberry bold suddenly shut down


Lots of battery issues with the Bold. Try taking the battery out, keeping it out and connecting to PC with USB. Do any lights come on? Red light should appear. Put battery in while connected to USB.

Another fix that I found for a friend-leave the battery out of the unit for a day-put it in and plug in power cord or USB. It worked.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working


The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter


If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.

Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse.
