Hi, the problem is going to be with the charger itself the chances are it has over heated now as for getting spare parts for these phones you may have a bit of a problem, the only place that may be able to get you a replacement charger is somewhere like Maplin if you have one of them near you take your old charger with you and they should be able to match you one up.
if you dont have a Maplin near you then have a look in your phone book for electronic repair shop.
Now their is no way of repairing the charger as they are a sealed unit and their is no way of getting the parts to replace any that could be damaged.
Could you just check if the charger wire can come out of the base if its just a push fit into the base then any electronic repair shop could get you a new charger for it but if its connected to the base and dont pull out then the problem is you would need to buy a whole new phone just to get the base.

One option you have is try looking on the well known auction site and you might find that you can buy a replacement off their for next to nothing so thats where i would look first.

the problem is with this kind of product they are just not made to be repaired they are just thrown away and replaced it would cost more than the phones worth to have it repaired, so if the charger unplugs out of the base then you should be able to get a replacement adaptor for it as a good electronic shop should stock chargers that put out the same charger as yours so check if it unplugs from the base, if not then the auction site would be my next try and getting another base, but other than that your going to find it impossible to repair as know one will touch them as it cost more than the phones worth to repair.

im sorry their is no easy fix but with todays throw away culture they just dont make the parts to repair these kind of products which i think is a shame as most will carry on working for ages after the repair was dont, but due to the low cost of replacing the whole phone its just not worth repairing it would just cost to much

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Light stays red after being plugged in for 24 hours

I am assuming that you are speaking of the charger. The Red LED shows that the charger is plugged into the wall. It does not show the charge status of the radio. These are very simple units, and it is not a "smart" charger.

Car charger not working. Is there any other way

did you get a pc usb cable in the box? you can use that to charge it. Also you can get a wall plug charger. all you need to do is obviously figure out what the connector is and find a charger to match, or if you want you can get a mulit adapter mobile phone charger you know the ones with all the different heads to try and fit any phone. That should be the same voltage as what the sat nav uses.

Uniden TRU888 5.8 Digital Phone Display no longer lights up

I purchased this model phone as a refurb item and also had display blanking out issues. Mine related to a problem with the battery, which new batteries fixed. Try swapping the batteries between handsets and see if the fault moves to the other handset, which will prove if it is a battery problem. Otherwise, it would seem to be an internal fault in that handset. Try and arrange repair/replacement from the seller.

Razr will not charge with wall charger

Your charger is faulty. If your phone is able to charge off of other sources (computer, car charger, another wall charger) Then, the charger needs to be replaced. Some mobile companies have a 90 warranty on accessories like the charger and battery. Then the mobile manufacture (Motorola) has a 1 year warranty on the charge and battery. I would check on that, and get those replaced.

Either the connectors have something in them like food or alot of dust or something laying in the cradle that is keeping the contacts from touching the phone contacts. Look in the cradle to see if there is something in the way, If that dont work, make sure the power socket is good by plugging something else in the outlet just to be positive it is hot, if it still won't charge then the plug on the cradle is bad or torn off inside. If you are a wizard you could fix it but if you are not inclined to tear things apart and out them back together don't try it. Good Luck...

Charger light

I had this same problem and all I did was to unplug the DC adapter at the phone and plug it back in after a few seconds. The solid charge light came on immediately, like usual. I let the battery charge for several hours before using the handset again.
