The first thing to try is a hard reboot - this means taking the sim out for 20 mins and leaving it off. Put back together and test it to see what happens.If this doesn't work i would try your sim in another phone and another sim in your phone as you may have a lose sim connector. If your phone still turns off you know you've got handset fault. If the other phone turns off you know you've got a sim fault - if the later speak to you service operator.

If handset fault i would frist recommend (if possible) trying another battery as the charge indicator will not always relate to the battery correctly. If avaliable try looking for a software update from the Ericsson website - this may solve it. If still no luck then i would suggest a factory reset (THIS MAY LOSE SAVED DATA SO BACK UP IMPORTANT THINGS FIRST) if this doesn't work then it would suggest to me it's beyond repair and if under warrenty try getting it replaced.

Hope this helps.

How long should i charge a new optimus black


The optimus black phone should take 2-3 hours to fully charge. When you get a new phone, however, it is generally a good idea to let the battery completely die before you start charging it.

Over time, batteries hold less and less charge. Supposedly, by allowing the battery to completely die before charging it the first time, you improve the longevity of the battery.

IF I WILL CHARGE MY PHONE IN A FEW MINUTES IT SHOWS FULLY CHARGE


I'm not certain what your question is you made a statement more or less.

I do know that alot of cell phones will show that they are fully charged after minutes of charging, but then very quickly go back down to almost dead within an hour. This is because the phone is not actually fully charged. Most batterys need at least an hour minimum to be fully charged after its drained completely.

Post back if you need any further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Battery problems


You need to replace your battery.  When you do follow these steps to preserve battery life.
1.  Fully charge battery for 24 hours 2.  Make sure that you use the phone without charging it until the phone tells you the battery is low. 3. Fully charge the battery until it reaches full again.
The reason your battery is failing to hold a charge is a problem call battery memory.  The less power that you use off the battery the less capacity the battery has.

Hi. My samsung G600 is playing up. In the past half an hour it keeps turning itself on and off. The battery is fully charged and I have turned it on and off myself a few times but still the same outcome....


The problem you have is software related and you will need to send it back to samsung who will sort it out, or if you give samsung a call they will tell you where the nearest samsung repairer is , my local one is in the carphone wharehouse, they told me it would take about an hour and a half , or i could leave it there and borrow a temp phone and pick up at my conveniance.

Battry dies


I would try either buying a new battery or cycling the battery that you have now, before spending the $200. Run the battery completely dead before re-charging it. I've seen handheld phones (this was years ago) that would shut down once the battery reached a specific voltage, which would not be low enough for the battery to lose enough charge to deplete its charge 'memory.' Many batteries will hold a charge for less and less time every charge cycle, simply because they aren't run down. When we encountered this problem, the manufacturers suggested that we hook a light bulb to the battery (we'd use a 12-volt car turn-signal bulb) and when the bulb would go out, we'd re-charge the battery, and then when it was fully charged, run it down with the bulb again. We'd do this three times, and the battery would be good for say another year or so. Hope this helps. If not, let us know.

Charging new phone


it wont harm your phone they just recomend 24 hours to make sure the bat is ok and that it gets fully charged but remember to let your bat go totally flat from time to time this will prolong the life of your battery as it does them no good just keep topping it up so i sugest to let it go totally flat say once a month this will keep your battery lasting longer between charge hope this helps
