V262 constantly beeps "low battery" alert

My Motorola V262 beeps a "low battery" warning almost constantly. Even after an overnight charge, it will show full battery until one call is made, then low battery. The battery is not low, as it will go a full day or two just beeping away, through call after call - I have never in three years had the battery actually go dead on me. After power down and back up, battery indicator shows higher charge - until the phone is used once again, when alert resumes.

Is there some way to reset the phone so it has a better idea of what the battery's capacity is? Or is my best advice to "get a new phone"? I'll do that eventually but this phone otherwise serves my purposes well.

Thanks for your help.

    Same problem.  Motorola V3.  Battery works great and lasts for a long time.  If its a battery problem, it sure doesn't act like it.  The phone simply continiously tells me I have low battery.  It will say low battery for days before it actually goes dead.  Everyone on this site keeps saying change the battery.  Battery life has not diminished though.  

    The phone started doing this a few months ago.  The meter worked great and wouldn't tell me low battery until just before it was going to die.

    I would think the phone could be recalibrated or something.  Should be a simple solution somewhere out there.

I have v262, the problem sometimes is the contacts where the charger and phone gold connections meet. carefully inspect where they meet when charging, and remove any debris from them with help of a small pin or a dry toothbrush, but gently especially with the charger, because the plastic sometimes breaks. No big problem while cleaning, but make sure
there is no debris in contacts.

I have a CP200 that beeps twice at regular intervals, and seek to correct this. It transmits and all, but the beeping is irritating.Suggestions?

It really sounds like a low battery alert. Swap batteries and check the date codes. How long off the charger until you get the beeping? Lithium batteries do not last as long (lifetime) as the older types. Motorola uses 4 numbers, year followed by the week such as 1344 = 2013, 44th week. Chargers are just that and do not test a battery. If the problem persists I have something else, but it is not easy.

I have an LG 8700. It is only 8 months old. When I charge the phone, it will beep. Sometimes it will do it every so many seconds, sometimes continually. It will also turns itself back on, and as this...

That batt is almost dead, had a similar problem. No tricks just replace it. Or try charging using a universal charge where you remove the batt and charge it seperately

Motorola CP200, radio just beeps when im pressing any button.

It is possible your radio is not programmed, or has a bad/old battery.

It is normal for the side buttons 1 and 2 to beep when depressed to indicate you turned the feature on/off. Each of these buttons has the ability to be programmed a long and a short press feature.

If your radio beeps when your press the PTT button, on any or all channels, it indicates a low or nearly dead battery. Check your battery date code to see if the battery needs replaced.

If your radio emits a long tone on a channel, that channel is not programmed to function.

If your radio beeps a single beep when you turn it on, this is normal.

Charge your radio completely overnight, with the radio turned off. See if this solves the problem. If not, try a new/different battery to see if it will solve the issue. If not, drop by your local dealer and let them look at the unit.

Is the battery lithium -ion? If not, you have an older generation of battery.

Having mentioned that, some batteries need an introductory "conditioning period". Continue your excercise of charging and draining (dont drain too too low) and hopefully you will start seeing some decent longer lasting charges.

Hope that helps!

that is wierd - you can try the first solution to have it flashed, but 30% that's the answer, somehow your lcd probably burnt out so a simple replacement is required - it would cost about $30-40 for the lcd and the installation
