POwer Turns off Unpredictably

Charge doen't last long. Plug it to charge, it starts charging, then it turns off and stops charging. Spoke to t-mobile. They say it's a known software issue and that i need a new phone because i'm out of warranty (sounds like planned obsolesence to me; Y2k built in to self destruct after x years ;) ). is there a software fix? If so, how to i get it?

I had the same problem, but replacing the original battery sorted it out. I also had the other software problem these phones are known for, where they suddenly switch off for no good reason. Remarkably, replacing the battery has fixed that problem, too! Don't bother looking for a Siemens battery. You can get an after-market replacement for around $20 online. You might be on to something about the planned obsolesence, though--my original charger just suddenly failed today. Fortunately an after-market replacement was pretty easy to come by.

Charging my juke with a usb cord


Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the remaining battery charge.
  1. Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter, and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
  2. Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction as the front of the jukebox.

  3. If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge from the computer's USB cable. Note: If you are charging your jukebox from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges, but it will take longer to charge.

  4. If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully charged.
  5. When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

Htc touch diamond freezes on start-up


I called and spoke to HTC ..apaprently there are issues with some of the handsets .. and its power related ... the best this is to do 2 things to solve any number of issues....
A: Get a replacment battery, and recharge it fully without turning the phone on. So plug it in and charge it until the white pulsating light is fully lit and not 'breathing' ..as they say. Once fully charged then turn on your phone...
B: Once on ... 'hardware' reset it -  (you turn on the phone, holding the volume down button, and the hang up button and pressing the 'software reset button, at the same time)  
Should solve it ... IF it dosent .. and your getting the same issues after battery replacment, software and hardware resets ...you've basically got a 'hardware' issue with the phone in which case you need a replacment or repair... (make sure your phone is insured)
Hope that helps folks...
p.s. My phone eventually stopped charging ...nothing, no power so i sent it back for a replacment which im waiting for to arrive...
