You can get this fixed through tmobile's 611. it just requires a simple soldering on the Motherboard or a replacement of the charging port.

i saw that once before on a z520 - we reflashed it and it was fine. They have some codes inside to detect original or aftermarket accessories, but sometimes they have flaws

SOURCE: I have a accurian portable dvd player APD-3955 and

you need to buy a new charger; however' it might be the battery, double check that your battery works fine and then get the charger, or what you can do is the following:

buy a new charger, plugg it into your dvd, if everything goes back to normal then it was your charger, but if the problem continue return your charger and get a new battery

SOURCE: I have a accurian portable dvd player APD-3955 and

I had the same problem and I found out that is definitely the battery. I had used mine only a few counted times and after 1 year the battery would not charge. I would plug it and the charge light would turn on and stayed for about 4 minutes and then turned off. I called axion and talk to customer support. The tech said that the internal batteries only last for a year whether you use the DVD or not. They would replace the battery for $60 + shipping costs. As you can see... it is not worth it....sometimes you are lucky and get good stuff for cheap but sometimes... you just get what you pay for.... and this is one of the cases. Yes, I am also very disapponted. What a piece of junk!!!! I can still watch DVD with either the charger plugged in or with the car charger. But it lost its Portable side.....

Will not turn on


If tablet keeps burning out charges it is due to the fact that an internal short in the tablet is making the charging unit exceed its parameters and allowing it to burn itself out. The issue is with the tablet, not the chargers.

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?


It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

I just bought the Lithium - ion batteries for replacement for my 18.0 volt ni-cad battery. when I put it (ion battery) in the charger (ni-cad charger) no lights come on. what's up?


Lithium Ion batteries don't charge the same way ni-cads or ni-mh do. You need a lithium ion specific charger to charge them. (Some chargers do multiple types.)

Recharge battery Cadillac Deville 2005


You do not need to remove the battery to charge the battery. When you connect the charger you MUST be careful to connect the charger's positive lead to the positive terminal to the battery and the negative lead to the negative lead to the battery before you turn on the battery charger. Connecting the charger leads the wrong way around most likely damage the vehicle's electronics.
When you finish charging the battery turn off the charger before you disconnect the charger leads. This will prevent arcing between the leads and the battery.

When charging, the message "check


It may not be. Good call on trying a different charger. Most of the time it's just a bad connection, and you have to hold it or angle it weirdly, so it may have been just the charger. In some cases it's the connection from the phone to the battery that's messed up. Check the hole where the charger connects to and the small metal tabs that touch the batteries metal tabs. Sometimes they may be bent too inward and you have to gently pull them out to allow for a better connection. You might also want to check the battery for any moister (water) damage. Just cause it hasn't even been rained on doesn't mean there won't be any water damage. Every cell phone battery has a small white sticker (some with pink x's). The sticker is ether a circle, square, rectangle, or oval. (Usually there on the same edge as the mettle tabs). The sticker is placed in a small grove that was made for that sticker. If you take off the cover you'll see that your phone has the same type of sticker and grove (they may be different shapes however). If any one of the 2 stickers is pink or red your phone and/or battery is/are considered to be "water damaged". In which case you'll have up to 6 months before it stops working. Usually you start noticing it act funny after 3 months. Of course it all depends on how badly it's damaged. However if you're hella lucky maybe it was only the sticker that got wet (it does happen) and nothing is damaged.

When charging, the message "check battery" appears


There is nothing wrong if you get this message While You Are Talking, Texting or Surfing the Web. If that is when we receive this message means is that you are using more power from the battery than the charger is supplying at that moment. SO the power/battery monitor in the phone thinks that the battery is bad because the battery is not receiving any of the power that is coming in from the charger BECAUSE you are using the phone while you are charging. So you really don't need to worry about it. If you care about the life of your battery; some experts suggest that the best way it charge is with the phone completely turned off. I know many people believe they can't ever possibly survive life with the phone off. Having said that the next best way to charge is with the phone on but not in use. When you use the phone while you are charging you are putting extra strain on the battery and it's charge control/monitor circuits. Hope this solution is helpful for someone.

It is probably the charging port. It seems to be a common issue with this model of phone.

If it is the charger port on th eD900, You have 3 options.

1. get it repaired, under warranty if possible
2. Get a new one
3.Get an external battery charger and charge battery separate from phone.Another battery and charger will set you back about 10 dollars on ebay
