Spv c500 was working - went flat- now I have charger-still not working? is problem battery?
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?
Is it likely that the new charger is not working?
Not sure if a reset will fix.

If you mean the amber 'charging' light does not light when charging, note your PC must have a working Microsoft ActiveSync installed on an XP, Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC, before the phone will charge from a PC USB port.
If it will also not come on when the AC charger is connected, then I would suspect a bad light or what ever supplies the light.
How do you know it is not chargeing if the phone comes on. Are you saying the phone will only come on when plugged in a PC or AC Charger? If so, I would suspect the battery. Unplug it and clean both the battery terminals on the battery those on the phone the battery mates with. You can use a clean pencil erasure.
Do a Hard Reset by holding down and holding down both left and right soft keys when turning on phone, til you see the Reset screen. All apps and data you put on phone since new will be lost, but original mfg software will reinstall itself.
