Please check the charger connector for dirt, if possible take an old toothbrush and clean with alchohol, let it dry and refix everything. should work.

I have the same problem. But my red light flashes 6x.
This appeared when putting the battery out when K610i was still shutting down (I think thats the cause)
I think only a firmware reflash will fix it, I tried many ways.

This is a known issue with this phone. It is a software problem. You need to get your phone reflashed, either download the software and do it yourself or take it to a company that does it. In my opinion SE should pay for this as it a serious design flaw.

Hi I just had exactly the same problem as yours. I took my battery out to use my sim in someone elses phone, my battery then went flat and got those 2 red blinking lights. Send it back if it is under warranty. They couldn't fix mine so I got a brand new phone yesterday.

My K610i won't turn on. Red light flashes n won't charge.


That indicates a problem with the battery.Try a reset first.

Connect the phone to the power adapter and then press and hold the power button for more then 1 min.If it still doesn't turn on then remove the battery and sim from the back and then insert the sim back again and hold the power key for more then a min.Make sure you don't insert the battery now.Let me know the result.

Thank you

1996 318 i se battery went flat, replaced it now it wont start, got ignition lights but wont turn over

This is not a sloution but i had a similar problem about 6months ago. I left the lights on which drained the battery, road assistant came to booost start it, there was power but no turn over, not even a clunk of the engine trying ( all electrics are working and lights in the dash are live), tried a new battery same situation,
I took it to BMW independant specialist who put it down to a ECU fault , i was duped into having a new key made as i had no spare as it was believed the immobilizer had locked the car up so to speak, this didnt work , so the mech ordered a new ecu, and had it reprogrammed and it turned over first time, It was bumpy idling at cold start cos i had my original dead battery but after a day it ran like it used to sweet as a nut.
it was expensive 500 quid to put right, but then you may have better luck with your mechanic.

Turn on

If the phone is only a few weeks old, return it to the vendor for repair or get in touch with your service provider for returning the unit.
