My phone was doing this. These batteries get hot and won't charge. So try plugging the phone into the charger and take off the back cover and keep the phine face down with cool air blowing on it. it will keep the phone cool and allow it to charge. I bought a new battery thinking ut was the battery, but it wasn't.

SOURCE: phone not turning on

first use the wall charger and see if the problem is not your battery in the phone. if the problem still exists, then uninstall and reinstall the driver for phone in the computer. if the problem still exists then you have a bad usb cable. please rate this thanks

Sounds to me like the device is faulty and there is nothing you can do about it. You will need to return it to the place you got it from. I deal with this sort of thing on a daily basis at work and that's what we usually do with phones with similar problems.

I am trying to charge my phone right now but it is just a constant red light where it would usually be orange and it is saying 0% charged


did you run the battery completely flat?

my phone if it has gone dead, when plugged in to charge, has a red LED for about 5 minutes where you cannot even turn it on it is that dead. after those minutes pass the phone can then be turned on, and the LED changes color to orange to indicate it is charging and is also powered on.

Blackberry shuts off and red light keeps flashing. I take the battery out and put it back in and it still wont work. Then randomly it will turn on and work for a bit. Im so lost, please help!


The flashing red light is telling you that the battery is almost drained down to capacity and that the phone must be plugged in now. When the charge is this low you are going to have to leave the phone recharge for at least 12 hours before trying to use it again. Once the phone is turned back on, the phone will reset itself. Good luck.

I see red light instead of orange


did you try the following?

1. disconect you phone from power supply.
2. take the battery out
3. connect the phone back to the charger
4. place the battery back

if it does start charging (after 3 seconds you see the orange light) just leave it for about 60 minutes to charge. if you still get the red light, try again the 1-4 steps one or two times.

if it does not help you, you might need to replace the backup battery in the motherboard. this is a small CMOS battery, very close to the mini USB connector onboard. I think you should send the device to an HTC service center to do this kind of repair, since electronics ans soldering skills will be required for that job.
Good luck!

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.
you want a repair service

8525 Red Light


Take the battery out then plug in the phone. The light should turn red, then reinsert the battery with it still plugged in. It should turn orange and start charging.

WHY WONT MY 7280 CHARGE OR TURN ON


The red light indicates its charging.  My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge.  This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.

T-mobile dash wont turn on


In my experience when getting a phone wet your only choice is to let it sit. It could take a few days or a month but soon or later they usually fire back up.
