Hi gingermark,

I had exactly the same problem with you. What I did to my phone was, I took the battery off the phone for a minute. Then put your battery back and quickly plug your charger jack into your N81. if your phone start to charge then that's mean it starts to feeding the battery up.

But, after that my phone always find itself under charging condition even with the charger jack unplugged. What a frustrating thing, I am trying to flash it to newer version firmware. Will see what is gonna happen. Will get back to you when I get the answer.

I personally think if the charging component inside the fone has got dirt on it. "maybe" it made short-circuit or some sort of thing.

Will try to open up the fone and do some cleaning if upgrading firmware doesnt give any clues.

Cheers mate :)
