Phone will not power on

I powered off my phone a couple days ago to save battery life, when I tried to turn it on it would not power back on. I hooked to charger to make sure that wasn't the problem. The red light on the bottom of the phone comes on to show its charging, but still wil not power on. The phone and battery are both less than a couple months old and I've never had any problem with them before.

    I have the exact same problem, turned my phone off one day and it never came back on. the red light is on when its plugged in, and it even beeps after being plugged in for a while like it has a low battery, but won't turn on.

How to increase battery life in LG GT505

Feeling tired that after surfing the web or playing a few games, the battery is halfway through to being dead?
So this Tip is for you!
What we're going to do, is put every setting on the minimum so that it doesn't waste battery life that much when you're just typing a SMS.

1 - Open the Menu and click on the last icon (on the right bar) on the bottom. - Settings

2-Open Phone Settings, and slide the Power Save button to turn it ON.

3- Now go back to Settings and go to Screen Settings and choose Brightness. Set it to 0% and Save it (click Yes even if it tells you that you are changing the Power Save Settings)

4 - (Optional) If you don't mind your phone turning off the backlight real quick, you can change the amount of time it stays on, but if you send or read a lot of messages, it can become a bit annoying, so it's really up to you! Anyway, in Settings, choose Screen Settings, then Backlight, and choose whatever time suits you. Keep in mind, that the lower the time stays on, the more it saves up battery life.

Imagine you just made a phone call, then put the phone on your pocket. For some time, it's backlight is on for a long time, maximum brightness and you're not even looking at the phone. That's a waste of battery power!

Using those new settings, you can get up to 3 days battery while playing a fair amount of games!

My phone ran out of power overnight - when i attached recharger the phone sprang to life in emergency mode - it's been charging over an hour but still in emergency mode and i can't power down, the buttons...

Try taking the phone battery out of the phone,then leave the phone for 15 minutes replace battery and plug inlead for charging don't turn on the phone but charge the phone for a couple of hours then turn on and see if it has been fixed.

Battery life dropped from 3-4 days down to less than a day, and it won't stay off. If you turn it off, it turns itself back on. I'm guessing a button is stuck, but can't figure out how to fix it. ...

The problem is not your phone battery the problem is from your phone power ON button. What you need to do is that unscrew the phone with phone screw then service the panel with cottonwood and spirit then dry it up with electric bob for some time, after all this then couple it up and charge your phone battery then you will be able to enjoy you phone again.
Please note,if you can not do these your self candidly take it to a good phone work shop around you to do the servicing for you.
Good luck.

Powers off for no reason

i had this problem with a razor.
if the phone has never had any kind of damage - water/impact.
AT&T reccommended that I should turn off phone my phone for atleast 10 minutes a day.

Battery charge is finished very soon without even using it( in about 5 hours)

The proper way of charging the battery on your phone is by waiting for your phone to indicate that it's running out of powe but not completelyr, if you frequently charge your phone even if it's not yet necessary(battery life indicator show half-way) the ability of the battery to store power will deminished hence the battery life is shorter. Last resort would be trying another battery unit to test if it's your battery of your phone that's causing the unsual battery drain.

Or you can try the following steps on conserving your phones battery life;

  • Turn off your Infrared and BlueTooth when not in use. Even when they are not in use, they do keep drawing power looking for signals.
  • Switch off the vibration alerts. Vibration causes a lot of power usage thereby making battery drain fast.
  • Re-adjust your screen brightness to around 50%. Screen power is another silent killer.
  • Usually, presetted Backlight durations are of pretty high order, this can be readjusted to get more from your battery. Try reducing the Backlight duration.
  • Often we don’t understand that playing games requires Light, Sounds and Shakes. This in turn leads to tripling of battery drainage.
  • Lower Ringing and other message sounds. This too helps saving a lot of battery.
  • Finally, do charge your battery before it gets drained fully. This enhances battery life.

Kyocera lingo..5 minute beep..help

My Kyocera phone has been beeping every 5 minutes for several days. The only way I could make it stop was to turn my phone to silent, but then I missed all my calls and texts. I finally called my carrier and they told me how to fix it. I had to take the battery out while the phone was turned ON. After removing the battery, I had to hold the send button down for 15-20 seconds (while the battery was still out), then replace the battery and turn the phone back on. This apparently resets the phone. I waited 30 minutes before posting this solution, and the phone has not beeped again!!!

Can somebody help me please??

you should try to do a hard reset. While holding down on the far left (calendar) and far right (iTask) press in on the reset button (reset hole) with your stylus for about 2-3 seconds. The Pocket PC should reset and power back on. If the device does not power back on, make sure that the battery lock switch is to the left (locked).
