Question about Orange SPV C500 Pocket PC

1 Answer

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.

Sometimes if the battery has gone well below it's re charge state, it won't even work when plugged in until it has got some charge to it.

I can't get my phone to work.My battery is good and charged but the phone still doesn't work. It is new.

Kathryn, contact the shop/company from which you purchased it... Customer Support is I imagine the best place to start...

Hi, my nokia 5530 is not charging at all.... at first it started charging but after a while it stopped..... but when i tried turning on the cell, it didn't and it is not recharging anymore.

Welcome to Fixya.

Here's what I recommend for you to try out:
  • Remove the battery
  • Press and hold down on "Power" for at least 10 seconds
  • Return the battery in place and try to charge it
Similarly, here are some other options :
  • Try another known good working power socket
  • Seek another known good charger and try it out
  • Replace the battery
If these would still not resolve your issue, then the phone needs to be serviced by a certified technician. Please note that these are the only DIY procedure that I can give.

My phone dies after 10 mins of use is it my phone or battery?

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.

My samsung impression overheats and drains my battery within minutes of use. i will have it fully charged. if i dont use it it will be dead in an hr or two. i just used it and i was on the phone for like...

There is some issue with your battery. Before you replace it ... please contact your carrier for advice.

Thanks for your interest in; please remember to evaluate this response. Thanks

Switched off suddenly

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.

rate me if this is helpful.


V600i will not turn on ...

sounds like you may have a battery issue, try a new battery first, after that, you might as well get a new phone, since repairs are going to cost more than the phone does.
