Question about Audiovox CDM8910WW
I've bought a used Audiovox 8920 cell phone (ebay), with a wall charger. On the battery indicator it showed at the most 2 bars. And whenever I plugged the cell phone to the charger, the cell phone was turned on, even if I turned it off. Occasionally I would see "Charging System" flashing on the screen for several seconds. But the battery would still die after a day or so. Then I bought a new battery and a car charger and have the same problem. But now both batteries do not recharge and the phone is completely dead. What to do? (Besides throw it at a wall).. It sounds like the plug receptacle in the phone is "broken" Can it be fixed? cheaply? thanks...jeepnut
I have been made aware that the charging mechanism in the breaks off because it is made of plastic I was told it was a known problem but some stores will denie it and try to get you to you your insurance to get it replaced. For m that is a additional $50 charge and my phone is still under warranty.

SOURCE: CDM-8915 PHONE IS DEAD!
The solution: I left it alone for 24 hours.
Here's what I did:
I plugged the charger in and allowed it to charge overnight. No lights or screen or screen appeared but I kept it in anyway. After charging, I removed the battery and cleaned all the contacts with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. When I reinserted the battery, it vibrated intensely, which indicated a strong battery. I did not turn the phone on right away but waited a day. When I turned it on, it responded like nothing was wrong. Perhaps the phone reset itself. That’s how it behaved.
In any event, I have my phone back and it’s working well.
To summarize what happened:
The phone drops into a puddle and is partially submerged for an hour or so. I find it, dry it off and make some calls, with no effects of any kind.
The next morning, it fails completely. No response whatsoever. I recharge the battery and that doesn’t work. What did work was to remove the battery and clean all the contacts and reinsert it and leave it alone for a day.
Lesson learned: record all phone numbers before I lose them forever.
Also, get a better holster so that the phone is secure from falling out.
Thank you very much for your support.

This is not likely a battery issue but is indicative of a phone that has gotten wet or has been infected with a virus or has other software issues. We work on cellular phones and would be willing to look at your phone to see if the phone numbers and pictures can be retrieved. Call 1-800-297-5550 and speak with Debby, 9 - 5, M - F, EST for shipping info. You can also contact Audiovox in NY to arrange for out-of-warranty repairs but they will not save your data as a part of the repairs.
