Hi car3r0,

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.)

Let us know how things go!
Thanks,
Jonathan

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?


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.

I just got the same problem, it's just because the battery is so dead it needs time to re-charge. Just leave the phone plugged in for a while, it will eventually show up as charging :)

There is a yellow blinking light on my Black jack


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.

T-MOBILE DASH WONT TURN ON!!!!


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.

WHY WONT MY 7280 CHARGE OR TURN ON


The red light indicates its charging.  My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge.  This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.
