Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3c Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Charge problems I can plug the phone into the charger and it takes 8 hours for it to show a full charge, when it used to charge in less that 3 hours. It also only hold a charge for a couple hours when I could go days before. So I did what most people would do and I replaced the battery and I still get the same behavior. The phone also gets very hot when charging.

Its because of a faulty charger more than the battery but you could try changing the battery and charger both that should improve the results.

but the piece getting hot might be due to moisture in the piece thus a shorting of some sort, my advice switch to a different piece sell it off, as the v3 circuitry is too complicated for repairs.

I have Samsung 6272 when I charged the phone is full after 5 minuts I change the batter and charge but m problem not soluve ?


The very first charging-time of the battery should most-usually last 6-8 Hrs , and if you did not do the same i suggest you drain your battery to the bottom until it turns off by itself , then plug in the charger and leave it charging for 8 hours (meanwhile the phone should be turned off ) . should be fine after ;D

(in case you did everything as you should and encountered this problem long time after you using the phone , all you can do is replace the battery)

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700


There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

My i phone wont hold is charge i have try lots of charges but is not charging


I had this exact problem too - same as the first two posts anyway.

It seems to be just a software issue and was easily resolved for me with a full power off and reboot. Here is how to do that safely.

Plug in the phone using the wall socket charger, leave it for a few hours to get a charge (i know it doesn't look like its charging). Later, press the on/off button. The battery icon appears with just a thin red line. Let it go back to black. Then press the the on/off button and the menu button simultaneously for about 8 seconds. A red button should appear on the screen with a question asking if you want to power off the phone. Say yes. (I think it was a slide bar, but can't remember now.) Wait a few secs while the phone powers off. Then remove the power plug from the phone. Now reinsert the power plug. After a few (worrying) seconds of nothing, a white Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen, a few more seconds and the iphone main menu appears. No data has been lost, no settings are altered, and best of all, the battery shows a full charge and seems to be back to normal again.

Charging problem


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your charger. The problem is from your battery.

The battery cell is very weak, such that it does not have the ability to with hold power for long.

Therefore, get another battery and the problem will be resolved. But make sure you charge the new battery till its full before you start using it.

Take care.

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.
