Kyocera Candid 2 phone won't hold charge

My Kyocera Candid 2 phone won't hold a charge. I've brought a new battery and charged it and as soon as I unplug the phone from the charger the battery dies again. Within a few seconds, the first bar on the battery icon disappears and within the next few minutes the other bars began to disapear.
Sometimes it will allow me to make one call but the battery will die during the call.
Please, help me the (Cricket Service Center) can't seem to help me with my problem. They Just want me to keep spending money. Should I just get rid of the phone or sign with a new company?

Think that since you have a new battery in there, the charger is simply not working properly and that explains the premature shutdowns

Sounds like you need a new phone, that brand wasn't meant to last long, it more or less is a starter phone made to be upgraded.
Never had any problems with your carrier, but have had several problems with that brand of phone

SOURCE: Kyocera Wildcard charger doesnt work.

You can go to your carriers retail store and use one of their chargers for free. Then you can determine if it is the phone or the charger.

SOURCE: phone will NOT power up on or off the charger but will tell me "phone is charging" and battery indicator will go up and down

You will need to replace your battery in your phone.
or check you charger and make sure it actually charging.
I would suspect it's the battery

I have a samsung galaxy s3 phone and it will not hold a charge. IF it charges to 100% and says charge complete, as soon as I unplug it from the charger it drops to like 40%.


The charge circuitry in your phone is not functioning. That's a factory repair. Go to Samsung's website and start a repair ticket.

My battery won't charge even if I replaced it with new battery.


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Are you shure your charger is working properly? Or that the battery is not shot?

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!


If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.
