Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Bought an unlocked (ATT branded) Treo 680 off ebay. I installed the new battery and connected to charger. After 2 hours charging light turned from steady red to green with flashing red. Disconnected from charger and charging light went red, flashing onc3e a second. the Treo seems to work but I have no SIM card in it. Other functions OK and battery did charge. I'm new to Treo. Is it broken?

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.

Why does my charger flash but not charge


Most chargers have a specific sequence of flashes to indicate whether it is chargers or there is a problem. If mine flashes real fast the battery is usually too hot to charge. You did not say what brand or model you have. The best way to determine if its a bad battery or bad charger is to try charging a known good battery. Usually it is the battery but occasionally the charger can be the culprit.

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c


I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.

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!

Palm Treo 680 does not power up


ive had my phone for almost 2 months now. My old treo 680 didnt even turn on... this was a replacement. Now it seems i'm having the same problem again where the phone froze and now it wont even turn on. Its really starting to piss me off now and if anyone can give any advice besides "taking out the battery" or "hard and soft resets" it would be great.
