Sounds like the OEM battery has an internal sensor to check for damage. And the phone has software to check. If the battery lacks the sensor or actually has damage or changes been done, the phone lets you know.

Using a non-OEM battery shouldn't be a problem if you don't care about the protective circuitry the OEM battery comes with. If the non-OEM battery is advertised an an exact replacement for your original, then you have an issue with the seller - he cheated you, not the phone supplier.

On power up, why does it indicate 'use genuine battery', then shuts off?


If your phone does not indicate it is charging, the 'use genuine battery' message may its way of telling you the battery is defective.

My aspire switch 10 won't power up. When it is plugged in the amber light on the tablet lights up and that is all.


Amber usually indicates that the batter is charging. If it never changes to green, you may need a new battery. Try taking out the battery and plugging in the charger. Sometimes a dead battery can actually block the power from getting to the device.

New phone won't turn on? Phone doesn't respond to charging or charged batter?


if this is a refurbish device that you obtained from the Warranty Dept ensure that they sent you the same model of phone and make sure that the battery and sim card are inserted correctly, If its a new device from upgrade or new activation i would take it to the store an exchange, also please ensure that you are using the PWR/END button located at the bottom right of the phone

My LG dare has a battery problem. when i go to turn on the phone, it says "use genuine battery....Power Off." Then counts back from 10 and turns itself off. what does this mean?


The batter has failed, you need a new battery, take it to the store if it is under warranty call your service provider and they will either issue you a new battery or a new phone.

Battery won't charge.


hello,

normally many cell phones requires 6-10hrs for its batter to fully charge up. also i have seen it where battery can be brand new but doesn't have enough juice to hold the charge.
now as far as red light on charger, remember even if you have 99% charged batter and you plug in the charger it will show you red light on phone/cradle.

FYI- all brand new phones are covered with 30 days of warranty replacement with new phone. after 30 days it covers upto 1 year from the date of purchase with refurbished phones.

In your case i think it is just the battery, try having your provider replacing new battery if no luck again then my suggestion will be to replace your phone with new battery with in 30 days.

TY

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off


Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
