Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.

Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.

Bad charger (probably won't work for a dead battery)

Good Charger (correct amperage and designated for the MDA)

It may not be getting enough power, try charging it in a couple different wall jacks. Also try charging via a usb cable connected directly to a desktop computer (not laptop)

My HTC mobile not going to on after pressing power button and on connection of charger it is showing red LED. Same there here. I woke up this morning and my phones just dead. Even if i connect the charger...


Remove the battery then connect the charger without the battery. Then hold down the power button for a few seconds. The red light may come up for a quick second during this process.

Don't remove the charger. After the red light goes off then insert the battery and check if the light turns amber or orange.

Leave it in orange or amber light state for about 2 minutes. After that, try to turn it on. If it turns on then it is resolved. If not then there is a hardware problem with your phone and it needs to be checked at any HTC Service Center.

Firstly i doubt that your phone battery is damaged. To check this please go to your nearest mobile Service center & check for battery life.

Ther is also a possibilty of your phone chager to get damaged. Please check for the same with other compactible phone.

I see red light instead of orange


did you try the following?

1. disconect you phone from power supply.
2. take the battery out
3. connect the phone back to the charger
4. place the battery back

if it does start charging (after 3 seconds you see the orange light) just leave it for about 60 minutes to charge. if you still get the red light, try again the 1-4 steps one or two times.

if it does not help you, you might need to replace the backup battery in the motherboard. this is a small CMOS battery, very close to the mini USB connector onboard. I think you should send the device to an HTC service center to do this kind of repair, since electronics ans soldering skills will be required for that job.
Good luck!

If the light doesnt turn to orange after a few minutes on the charger then the problem hardware related. Try another battery if there is no change then there is fault in the device, and repairs are required.


also you can try

this:

1. Plug it in the Charger without the battery inside.

2. switch on the power.

3. Without removing the charger plug in the battery.

4. Light should turn orange.

5. Wait a moment or two then power it on.

that might get it to work.

Phone not used for a while-please give me advice on battery issues


Sometimes if the battery has gone well below it's re charge state, it won't even work when plugged in until it has got some charge to it.
