Replaced Battery - Indicator Doesn't Work

After about 15 months of use, the battery on my Razr croaked. I bought a new battery, swapped them, and it works fine. Unfortunately the phone seems to think the battery is perpetually drained, that is until I plug it in to charge. Plugging it in makes the battery indicator jump to the fully charged status. Unplug it and it immediately goes back to red. My phone has now been on for about 24 hours and I've even made several calls during that time, and it has been in the red the entire time. Obviously this isn't right. Is there something I need to do to reset the phone or pair it with this battery so the phone will correctly read the charge level of the battery?

Samsung R480 Will not charge or turn on but indicator lights flash or stay on.

Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.

My Motorola V3c will fully charge the battery in about 15 minutes. But the charge lasts maybe 3-4 hours. It is a new phone.

Moto Razr components where taken off the assembly line years ago and all parts used are refurbished or stockpiled.........you have a bad battery, case closed........the razr has a few common flaws...... ear piece, LCD, and battery tends to go out without notice and on a rare occasion wont work right out of the box.....Working at Sprint PCS I saw 1 out of every 15 Razrs have problems straight from the box....take the phone back to the staore and they will giv you a new battery as they should be away of the hiccups associated with this device!!!! :D and by the way, 3-4 hrs use from a 15 min charge is awesome.......just your battery has an internal flaw that is causing it to transfer too much power.....(i.e. thats how it is able to charge so fast, but also why it dies so fast) if you have another razr laying around try that battery as long as the lettering on the battery is the same....fr example : a battery with the code bt50 and br50 are not interchangeable.
Good Luck and pls rate this post!!!! :D

You may want to try a new battery. Also, give it a few days to dry before trying it again.

If it still won't work after a week, you will need to have it repaired or replaced. Unfortunately the warranty will be void, and they can tell it has been wet due to an indicator inside the battery compartment.

Problem

Try the phone while plugged in and see what happens.  If it works fine then it's probably the battery or the contacts to the battery.  I've had a problem with my razr that's similar to this.  My razr is on the keys light up when i press something but the screen is completely blank open and closed and all the buttons work.  Best thing to try is leave out with battery and sim card out and it might start working again.  However if it is only 2 months old it should still be covered under warranty.
