20 Most Recent Audiovox SMT5600 Questions & Answers

Not necessarily. If you very carefully open up the upper dark portion of the back of the phone (where the antenna extension is), you'll see that the antenna of the phone is actually a metal track which winds around the back of the headplate.

Check to make sure the two prongs which touch this headplate can do so without any problems. If the internal antenna is corroded, it may need to be replaced.

Most cellphones have varying antenna power, so you can expect to see differences when comparing two cellphones side by side. If you find your phone has no signal mostly when driving, check out this link: http://www.cellantenna.com/Boosters/cellphone_signal_boosters.htm

I hope this helps.

yeah go to a cellphone repair shop and ask for an open line.

You could try removing applications you installed, one by one with a power on reboot in between each removal, to see if an app caused the phone to do this. Start with latest app you added and progress to oldest you installed, trying to see if problem is fixed between each.

To Remove programs, go to Start/Settings/Remove Software.

If this does not work, you can Hard Reset your phone. This will cause original MFG software to reinstall itself. You will lose any apps or data you installed since new.

To Hard Reset, press and hold both left and right soft keys while turning phone on, till the Reset Screen displays.

If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.

You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.

Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.

Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.

I had a similar problem with my SMT5600. I've found that when this happens, if I just hold the hangup key until the keypad locks, I can then unlock the phone and it will function normally. Try this to see if it helps.

The solution was to do a hard reset on the phone. It literally cleared everything off the
phone. Luckily I had everything backed up. Phone works great now.

Use Media Player on your computer to SYNC you music files to your phone. After files a synced, go to Media Player on phone and click right soft key MENU and select UPDATE Music/Audio Files, then select SEARCH.

Start with another battery. Borrow a friends or they are available on Ebay rather cheap. Or, go to your Cell Carrier and ask them to help you try another battery.

Have you tried charging it through the USB port of you computer? The phone is designed to charge from a USB port also, but computer must have ActiveSyn phone driver install and be recoginzed by the computer in order to charge using USB port.

Audiovox SMT5600 • Answered on Jun 08, 2008

You must install ActiveSync software on an Win XP OS available with disk supplied with phone or on MicroSoft support page.

If you are using Win Vista OS, then download latest Mobile Center software while you phone is plugged into USB port.

Phone must be recognized by OS for phone to charge. Nice Audiovox/Microsoft desigh heh? Some times you just want to get designs by the throat and squeeze them.

same thing happened to me! except mine fell out just cuz i dropped it so much

***temporary fix: stick something small and metalic (i use a nail file, but ive also used a table knife) into the slot and play around for a while, should turn back on eventually

note:mine usually turns off spontaneously after about 5 minutes using this method

How long have you owned your cell phone for? Also, did it act strange before it died on you? Let me know so we can get to the bottom of this. Thanks & good luck!

Audiovox SMT5600 • Answered on Oct 11, 2007

you can use any USB cable, there is nothing specific about any particular brand... now the computer has to recognize the phone. You need the software/driver.

Hello, Wjmecca - I hope I am correct in understanding you are referring to a smart phone. If so . . . You will find the manual (PDF format) here: http://images.comparecellular.com/phones/171/audiovox-thera-pda2032-user-guide.pdf Note: It is 154 pages long. You will need Adobe Reader software (free) to download the manual, save it (to a computer file, which I recommend you name: Auidovox Smartphone, or something like it so you can find the document easily), and print it for easy reference. If you do not know how to do that or if your AT&T GoPhone is your only access to the Internet, then seek the help of a relative or a good friend with Internet access, a computer, and a printer.
