If battery fits, you've put it in correctly. Time for a new battery. They're cheap. www.ebay.com

I am not able to charge my cell phone HTC P3452


Hi

If you are not able to charge your cellphone, there are several factors why:
  1. your charger connector is defective
  2. your charger terminal is defective
  3. your battery is defective
To solve this, you can check your charger connector with multitester, if it's working or not. If you test it and there's a movement, then the charger is OK. Next, check the charger terminal, using multitester. If there's a movement, then it's OK. and you'll know that the problem is on the battery.

Cingular 8125, dead as a doornail.


u can take a usb cable that not being used by any thing . save the end that plugs in to your computer . the end you would plug in to the device you can cut off and you need to use the red and black wires to jump start the battery so it will charge . on your battery you will see the - and + the black goes to the - and red to + can use electric tape to hold the exposed wire to it and plug the other end in to your computer for about a 5 to 10 mins and then put it in your phone and turn it on and charge it .if didnt work you might have to leave it hocked up to the usb cord on the battery longer what i did to mine and it turns on and works fine now had the same problem battery got to low and dead . so phone was froze and wouldnt start

Will not power up on AC or usb adapter


If you have an extra charger for the phone remove the end take the exposed copper wires hold them to the positive and negative post's on the battery for about 3 minutes and then plug into the normal charger.
I know this works I did it to my phone last night.

Will not charge or turn on using USB cable.


Two things.

HTC phones will not charge from the USB port unless you have ActiveSync on an XP or Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC loaded.

Second, if the phone has been stored for a very long time, 1 year if initially charged, 1/2 year if not, the the battery self discharges to a point the USB port PC Sync software doesn't know the phone is connected. You must jump start a charge on the battery by either and HTC AC charger, a generic AC/USB charger will not work, or you can apply a +5 VDC voltage to the power terminal, marked + and - on the battery case, on the two outside terminals I believe. This 5VDC must be current limited for safety. The Red and Black lead inside a standard USB cable will supply current limited +5 volts at 100MA. Chop off a standard USB cable, their cheap and break out expose the Red and Black leads. While connected to the PC USB port, hold the Red lead to the + battery terminal and the Black to the (-), or other outside terminal, of about 30 seconds to a minute.

Now when you plug the phone to the PC with a good USB, the Amber light on the phone to indicate Charging, may not come on for a while, 5 minutes or so, but it will eventually. If it does not, jump the battery again for a longer period of time.

An AC charger for the 3125 are fairly inexpensive. $7 or so, on ebay with shipping. This may be the way to go. Consider getting one with a new battery. They are sold this way sometimes and sometimes for little more that the charger alone.

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.

8125 will not reboot


You need to jump start the battery.. The phone's charging capability is controlled by software (pretty dumb) so without enough juice from the battery it won't charge.

Grab an old USB cable (or other 5 volt source) and cut off one end.. take the red wire and put it on the battery contact on the end with the red plus sign. Put the black wire on the other end. Hold the wires there for about 3 minutes. Be careful not to switch the positive and negative.

Now reinsert the battery into the device, and without turning it on, plug in your charger. the charging light should come on shortly, and just leave it off charging for about an hour before turning it on..

Thats all Folks

Sidekick / Hiptop 2 won't take charge


The battery might be an issue. Sometimes with lithium Ion batteries, tehy just act retarded and need to be jump started from the dead. Buy a battery from any vendor and test it out. If it doesnt work you can always return it.

The freezer thing was a stupid idea. Maybe your charger is not an original charger? or if it is the charger port could be loose.

Audiovox SMT 5600 will not charge


If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.

You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.

Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.

Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.
