New battery on used phone won't charge

The new battery doesn't seem to be taking a charge. The phone (Treo 700w) indicates it's charging (red solid light and lightning bolt on the Today Screen battery indicator), but progress is never made and no charge is held. I have tried it with both AC charging cable and USB data.charge cable. No luck.

    i also have the pal treo 700 and it has done the same thing. ive had it from months now and it is an awesome phone however one day it stopped charging. i bought a new charger and that helped for a while but about a month later it stopped working again. like yours the red light is on and the phone says its charging but it doesnt make any progress. ive tried other batteries in it and still get the same result. im going to take the battery to an electronic store like suggested but if the issue isnt the battery does anyone have any suggestions for how i can get the phone to charge?

The battery might be bad you can go and have someone check the battery at any electronic store with a voltage meter.

It will not come on


Take your phone into you local network store and ask them to charge your battery. They charge it directly to the plug. This is free. If your phone works after this then it is the charger or the socket inside your phone!

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger


Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

Palm treo 700 wx won't charge


Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.

May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!

Treo 700


Mine did the same thing also would not charge. I called Verizon data center and they did not even go through a re-set, just sent me a new phone. It is a common problem with hardware.

Battery indicator/charging defect


Do you have a Treo desktop charger/sync cradle where you can drop the battery into the charger?
