Phone not used for a while-please give me advice on battery issues
Do you know how I can test a cell phone battery to see if it is stuffed or not? I have been given a spv c500 that was working when I was given it a few months ago ? but I didn?t have a charger for it so it went flat. Its been sitting flat for a while and im wondering if its stuffed the battery? I bought a charger for it but it doesn?t light up or do anything. Would a cell phone work if the battery is stuffed but the phone was connected to the mains?
Not sure if a reset will fix.

Hi, There are different possible things that can cause Your LG cell phone to malfunction the way it does. Possible reasons
The battery,, The Phone memory.
The battery of
the phone can be the problem.How Sometimes when a phone cell phone
battery is weak and It might not be able to power up the phone. You can
test the battery by using another battery to test on the phone,or you
can test the battery by using the battery on another phone to test if
the battery is still working properly.
The phone memory might
also be the problem. When an application is being downloaded on a cell
phone or being Transfered to another cell phone through Data cable or
Blue tooth, it is easy for VIRUS to affect the phone and when a VIRUS
affects a cell phone,the cell phone will malfunction.

Hi, In most cases like this, there are two major problem that can make a cell phone to act that way. Which are:
The batter of the phone, And the memory of the phone.

First of all, it will be advice able for you to write in the name of the type of phone you want to change the batteries. If it is clearly stated, I will so happy to be f service to you. Please kindly state the type of phone you want to change the batteries. By stating the name of the phone and the model for example nokia E71 or samsung corby etc.
Also before replacing a battery of a phone, be sure to have tested other components that are related to the power before concluding it is the battery that needs replacements. Components to also check are the charger and the phones connection port by trying out other devices on them, like trying the charger on another device and trying another charger on the phone so as to know if the problem is from the charger or the connection ports respectively.
Would be happy to be of service to you. So please state the type of phone and model number.
Hope this was helpful. Thanks for using fixya.
It could be either of those. If you've had this phone for a while and it's gone through a lot of charging cycles, I'd say try another battery (one you know is good, if possible) and see if the problem continues. A worn-out battery can take a charge but not store enough energy to give good use. It's also possible that something in the phone has gone bad and is drawing excess current and draining the battery, but I'd say that's unlikely. Something drawing enough current to be an issue would probably cause heating you would feel.
So try another battery first if you can, or check with your service provider or a phone store to see they can test the battery.
you have a loose battery connection. try stuffing a piece of paper on the end of the battery. next,. you'll open up and see the pin where the connection of the battery is. try pulling out the connection slightly and you'll be able to have the battery connected to the device.
then try knocking it back to test it. lol..
but the rest should be fine. mine had the same issue yrs back. but now its working fine.
