Hello, my godmom just purchased a Brand new Blackberry Curve phone.When the saler put the battery in the phone, it didn't power on and she said that the battery was not charged and that we had to charge...


Its very hard to pinpoint the problem from your few descriptions. However since the light came on it mostly means the charger should be okay. As for the phone, if the battery is really dead, it sometime takes up to 30 minutes before it shows that it is charging. SO leave it plugged in for some time to see what happenes. If it did not come on after that then the phone is bad. Just to make eveything sure, you can also try any other MINI USB charger or a simple MINI USB cord to the computer to charge the phone with as well. They all work on the Blackberry

Black jack 2 phone charger wont stay in the phone


Return to the carrier for warranty repair.

If you are out of warranty there are some options you can choose from

1. Get repaired
2. New phone
3. external charging source

The external battery charger runs about 20 dollars on ebay with an extra battery.

When you plug in the charger, does a light come on, or is there a battery icon on the screen?

If not, then the charger is bad.

If it is, then either the battery or the phone is bad.

I've seen bad batteries do this, so make sure you check that before replacing the phone.

Let me know if this helps,
Simon.

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.

No power


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)

Motorola A1200 Problem


Easy step by step solution!

Hey guys had the same, Try this solution before buying a new battery/charging cable (it might not be the problem):

I did these steps after playing around with it for awhile and am at the stage where my phone turns on fully and says "Battery Charging" when plugged into the charger. It is now charging normally again... Finally! (I had the flashing moto logo too when charger plugged in) I believe this problem occurs because the battery is completely drained and is unable to turn on to charge bcuz the phone needs to be on to be charged, happened to me because i left it in a jacket pocket and forgot about it for weeks. Anyways...

1. You need a USB data cable for it, it should have come with the phone, if not than any USB data cable that fits the phone's charging slot should work (charge cable for the ps3 controller will work or maybe a cable from a digital camera with the same end)

2. Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable and a USB port that works. Make sure it's plugged in and leave it (even if nothing happens and the screen on the phone is still blank). Although the screen is black, the phone is still charging via your computer (it's just too low on battery to produce the light on the display screen to load up your phone).

3. This might take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes so be patient and leave it plugged in, beats buying a battery of charger with your money for something that can be solved for free.

4. At some point your computer will make the usual processing noises signalling that it is finally recognizing the phone as a usb device and shortly after your ming's screen will turn on stating that the battery is charging. Success! One of two things will happen, if you have previously installed the ming's drivers to your pc it will just recognize the phone. If you are like me and do not have the drivers installed, you may choose to do so via the cd that came with the phone or just not do it at all.

5. If you want to just charge it via the computer then congrats, your job is done, just leave it plugged in and wait until it is fully charged. If you wish to switch to your regular outlet charger please proceed to step 6.

6. At this point drivers installed or not, either safely remove device from the computer or just unplugg it. Now return your phone to your usual outlet charger making sure its connected. When plugged in you'll notice the moto logo appear (no longer flashing). After about 5 seconds that logo will disappear. At this time flip open the phone. The usual turn on sequence will play out and it will now load up with the battery charging screen similar to the screen from when it was plugged into the computer. Congratulations your phone should be back to normal now.

NOTE: This charge will take longer than your normal charging time but that's just for this time since your battery is super low it will be back to normal after that. Also if this did not work for your phone then now is the time to see if the charger/phone/battery is the problem.

So I hope this helps you out and eases your state of panic. I hope I saved you guys some money with this solution and that your mings are up and running again. I know i was pretty content when the problem was fixed. Please reply with any comments, questions or concerns you may have. Enjoy your once again working mings.

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.
