If my battery is dead, shouldn't I still be able to turn my phone on if it is plugged into a charger? When I do this nothing happens. Also,how can I tell if my problem is just that my battery is dead or if there is another problem?

My Motorola Blur would not charge kept saying Connect Charger. I tried various power connecters including the Original one that came with the phone and the USB to no avail. This morning I took the phone apart and clean it and still would not recognize the charger.
Fix: I lifted up the connector where the charger plugs into on the actual phone and now it is making contact and appears to now be charging my phone.
If the phone was totally dead before it refused to charge initially, then the refusal to charge is due to the fact that there was no residual charge left to bring it to a charge, because the battery completely died. To fix it, kick start the charging process. Remove the battery, and using a universal charger (desktop charger) charge the battery for say 10 minutes, before re- inserting the battery to the phone and continuing with the normal charging process. If this does not work out, then problem is with the charging port. It has to be replaced. This can be done by nearby local phone repairers. Hope it helps? Success.
try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger
Nokia phones are notorious for slow response time when recharging from a completely dead battery.
Make sure there is good contact between all of the contact points.
plug in charger.
wait for at least 5 min.
If recharge symbol does not appear in window, then one of these things has occurred: 1. Phone has internal damage or water damage. no way to fix without nokia service.
2. Battery is dead. Try a new battery
3. Charger is bad. Try a new/different car charger or home charger.
These chargers are very inexpensive on Craigs List, try to solve it before throwing away the phone. Good luck, A former Nokia employee.
