the mobile requires a service with solution dipped in liquid, as few resisitors and capcitors might have been still corrosive, i think you please leave the phone without battery in room temp of 26-30 deg ... for a day or two...
Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.
On page 30 of the manual a red light states "Solid red-battery is not installed or is over discharged. Flashing red-battery very low(less than 10%)
In other words if you get a solid red light either you put the battery in incorrectly or your battery is over discharged and is no good.
You're correct. It doesn't sounds like the Dash is charging. At the very least, it doesn't sound like the Dash is charging properly. If you've got a T-Mobile store near by, you might want to stop by and see what they have to say.
(Note: the Dash battery has a tendency to go bad after about 12-14 months, so it may be as simple as a battery replacement. Worst case scenario, it could be a dead charging port on the device.)
