I have a T-Mobile dash and cannot get it to charge.

I have a t-mobil dash and cannot get it to charge. It appears that I have a loose adapter plug (the part on the phone). When I plug in the charger, the cable is loose in the phone and the light will not come on showing the phone is charging (battery is dead, so cannot see screen. Have been told its not the battery.
Any suggestions?

Do you have other phones or chargers? Most Motorola cell phone chargers will fit the dash as will some digital camera chargers.

I just got the same problem, it's just because the battery is so dead it needs time to re-charge. Just leave the phone plugged in for a while, it will eventually show up as charging :)

T-Mobile Dash screen won't light


Consult_roxa

You can open it up and see if the lcd cable has come loose.

The following link provides directions on how to replace you screen. You only need to go to step 7.
After resetting the cable, and it doesn't work, then you probably need a new screen. I provided a link below where you can get those.

Low batt


Hi car3r0,

You're correct. It doesn't sounds like the Dash is charging. At the very least, it doesn't sound like the Dash is charging properly. If you've got a T-Mobile store near by, you might want to stop by and see what they have to say.

(Note: the Dash battery has a tendency to go bad after about 12-14 months, so it may be as simple as a battery replacement. Worst case scenario, it could be a dead charging port on the device.)

Let us know how things go!
Thanks,
Jonathan

My dash will not power on..


Plug it in, take the cover off, keep it face down, and charge it under a cool air. it may not be charging due to the battery being too hot. I had this problem.

Palm LifeDrive not charging


I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

If the unit is not new have you checked the status of the battery and is it a manufacturer's battery - some units are quite sensitive to that.
The problem may also be with the charger
