Used Palm Treo 700wx won't seem to charge

I bought a used Palm treo and had to get a new charger for it, so I ordered a wall charger, car charger and usb cable from ebay. The treo was totally dead until I plugged it in with the wall charger. Now, I can get it to come on for only about 30 seconds, then it does a count down and shuts off. The light on the charger comes on, but not on the treo (red or green). It says that it is charging, but the battery shows 0%. Any way I can check to see if the battery is no good? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

My problem is quite similar. My 700wx won`t charge so I use my Treo 650 to charge my battery. I performed a hard reset and it charged once then quit. I tried another hard reset and it didn`t work. I hope this helped!

    I have a similar problemwith my Treo 700wx with Sprint.When plugged in, it says charging but there is no power getting to the battery. The phone will stay on as long as plugged in, but no juice is going to the battery. Unable to charge battery. It isn't a battery issue because I have swapped batteries with my brothers and his works fine. Any help is greatly appreciated!



    THanks.

    Out of the blue phone now won't run unless plugged in. I swapped batteries and confirmed that both batteries are fully charged.
    Phone won't turn on for calls either. Only PDA functionality working. As if it does not recognize that it has a battery.

SOURCE: Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

SOURCE: Palm treo 700 wx won't charge

Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.

May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!
