Hi - I bought my HTC S710 about three months ago. I love the phone and it's functions, but the battery power is horrible. My battery lasts only for 1 - 2 hours per day. Another funny thing I've noticed, is that when I charge my phone for an hour or so, Power Mangement displays 100%, but as soon as I disconnects the charger, the power meter goes down to 35% again.
Please help me with my problem. How can I fix this. Do I need to buy a new battery? Any suggestions?

Re: HTC S710 - Battery issue
it could be either battery or charger, If the charger isn't supplying enough power it will fool the phone..
some 3rd party batteries and cheapo chargers can cause all sorts of problems like this.
best way to test is charge your phone by usb, it takes longer but will give you some idea of weather its the battery or charger.
Make sure that the box at the bottom of the power management window (dont charge by usb) is set to off. Also for best results remove any other usb devices from the computer this will leave more power for the phone.
I am a proud owner of the HTC S710 the past one year, when I bought, it first I experienced, most of the problems mentioned here about the battery, while under guarantee period I exchanged the battery for another ,and since then I cont have any power problem though.
however, since its running WM, its normal for the battery to discharge, I tweaked with the power management, by reducing the timing of the various function to bare minimum. resulting in the battery to last for one full day after a full charge. do try this out.
There is definitely something completely wack with the power management on the 710. Ive tried with different HTC chargers and even a new battery. problems described here earlier accuretely describes my phone's problems but i think i found a way.
:::turn on the power mangement motitor (settings, choice 9)
:::charge the unit
:::the power meter should gradually rise (like 1% pr minute)
:::this indicate proper and true charging
sometimes when I connect the charger the meter will not rise, so then I disconnect and connect again till it does.
Also when using a docking charger it helps disconnecting and reconnecting the power cable from this unit.
:::bottom line: check the power management to ensure that are really charging
I have the same problem,
I have htc s710 and the phone is very good,
the battery life has gone from needing a full charge every couple of days to only lasting 2-3 hours.
I really enjoy this phone but the power issue makes this phone unusable so any suggestions is welcomed. Do you find this valuable?

if you momentarily push the "start" button, that should put the phone into hybernation. Which means the screen will go dark and quit using power. If the phone rings it will automatically wake up. If you want to use it just hit the start button again.
There are also some settings in the "settings" menu that determine when and for how long the screen stays illuminated when not in use.
if u buy new battery for around 35$... its creepy thing that it again sucks within 6 month so follow these procedure that i really got good response
1)Buy the new battery from any other dealers (u can use Nokia (std) or LG, Micromax, Onida... etc) having same specifications as 1050mAh Lion-POLYMER 3.7v and having equivalent Size that fit into the case.
2)Now open ur dead battery, remove the sticker slowly, u wil get the polythene bag carrying the charge sheets
3)Please note that dont not disturb this polythene bag... (cutting, drilling or pinning), else it starts burning.
4)U will see a circuit above the polyhthene bag having two poles (+ve n -ve) just cut the poles of bag from the circuit and keep the bag aside
5)Now do the same procedure with new batt and remove the polythene bag.. and soilder with the dead battery circuit. (check the +ve n -ve by multimeter)
5)Re-assemble with insulation tape and recondition it perfectly.
now check poles bofore starting.
Note : i got good result from this and i m getting 18-19hrs standby and 11-15hrs usage. Do it on ur own risk...and i m not responsable for ny harm)
The battery is
flat. If the battery is very
flat sometimes the phone will not start charging or turn on even when a power
cable is connected. This worked for me: - Remove battery - Insert power
cable/usb cable - Orange charge
light should start flashing - Re-insert battery - Leave phone charge
for a couple of hours - Turn on
i had this problem when the handset got WET did it get wet by chance? If so you need to ensure it stays in a dry not too hot a place for a day or two REMEMBER to have the power off and also out of the back too.
I got the three colours all i done was took the battery out while the phone was on and then restarted the phone (after replacing the battery) Do this Once or twice more if it fails then you will have to do a reboot. go to www.bt.com/help/broadband anywhere (british telecom safe site for htc handset help) The site will give you the info required to reboot handset. Hope this is of help to you. Even if your handset was not wet i would do the battery bit and the reboot too.......
I had the same problem. Went and bought a new battery.
Replaced it and let it charged without turning it off.
4 days now and I have not see the black screen yet.
Before it was happening almost everytime I wanted to use my phone.
At least once a hour I would have to shutdown and pull the battery.
will the buzz you herd was its insides of the battery was geting power to it but the battery was hit by water so the buzz was the water sizzing and so what I wood do is by a new HTC S710 battery and get rid of the old one!
