Hi, yes it does it indicates one of two things, it can either be that your battery and your phone has got hot and this has caused bad cells in the battery, or it could just be that you have got bad cells in your battery due to normal use, it does happen from time to time.

all you need to do is go and purchase a new battery then this will solve your problem.

a little trick though so remember this.

once a month let the new battery go totally flat let it go that flat that it wont switch the phone on when you press the on button, then do a full charge, if you do this say every 4 to 6 weeks then this will ensure you battery lasts longer and it will hold its charge a lot longer and it will also prevent it from getting any bad cells.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My car recently had an issue with charging the battery. We replaced the altenator. That did not fix the problem. Batter was still not getting charged. So we got a new regulator. Still nothing. I...


ALL OF THE FUSES NEED TO BE CHECKED WITH A FUSE TESTER. THERE ARE FUSES UNDER THE HOOD & INSIDE THE VEHICLE. ALSO, WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING AT A HIGH IDLE, PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY. IT SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.80 & 14.90 VOLTS. IF IT READS LOWER THAN 13.0 IT IS NOT CHARGING. IF IT READS TOO LOW MEASURE THE VOLTAGE AT THE ALTERNATOR WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING. IF IT READS TOO HIGH THE ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BUT THE VOLTAGE IS NOT GETTING TO THE BATTERY. YOU MAY HAVE TO REPLACE THE WIRE BETWEEN THE ALTERNATOR & THE BATTERY.

Charger is not workking


Hello,

Sometimes, the power supply to the charger might be too high or too low hereby resulting in damaging the charger. I will advice you test the charger on another phone before you conclude that the charger is bad. Once You have confirmed that. The only solution is to replace the charger. Once you have confirmed that the problem the problem is from the charger. Then You test the battery and the phone to know where the problem is from.

To test the battery,
  1. Power off the phone,
  2. Remove the battery,
  3. Insert it in another phone,
  4. Try to charge it with another charger,
If it charges, then it means the battery is working, but if it does not, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.

Further test the phone,
  1. Insert a well tested battery into the phone,
  2. Plug a well tested charger into the phone to see if it will charge,
If it does not charge, then it means the connection port is bad and if it does charge, then it means the problem is not from the phone.

Before the end of the of the tests, You will have detected the problem and the solution to any of it is to replace it.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Meter Explanation


You are correct on all accounts. A high number means you dying battery is sucking more juice from the Schumacker. A low number means the battery is not as thirsty. That's how I always think of how to read the meter on mine. Slow charge is a better, deeper charge. The quick charge will get you going, but you should maybe follow it up using the normal mode - car alternator and prolonged drive time. I never use quick charge, personally.

Can't get the power on...


I would try a new battery. How old is the battery? Your probably right about the battery not holding a charge.
