Motorola V551 Unable to charge

Phone persists with screen message - unable to charge. I have two chargers and get same result. Occasionally it does actually charge but can't make it happen on demand. Battery is relatively new.

    I have paid careful attention to the attachment of the charger plug. No difference. I have tried a new charger that came with my motorola wireless headset. Same problem. What makes this difficult is that it seems to happen then it stops for a while. I have left it plugged in "not charging" to return 8 hours later and see no change. Likewise I have observed it go into a charge mode after time. When it works correctly, it begins to charge immediately.

Make sure that you are inserting the charger perfectly strait into the phone so that both metal connector snap into place, at work we have a data base of different phones (not the V551) but we have the V600/V300/V330 and all have known issues for not taking charge as people do not attach the charger correctly. If this isnt the problem next step would be to try another charger, if you have a friend with a Vxxx series phone all chargers are pretty much the same, if you have had the phone for less then 90 days most carriers will warranty you charger and sometimes the manufacturer will warranty it for 1 year. If its a problem with the phone then the carrier and manufacturer offer 1 year warranty. If there is a cingular store in your area you could also try going there to test your battery in another V551 to narrow down exactly were the problem is.

"Unable to charge" message for W377 motorola (t-mobile)

Check the contacts between phone and battery, if necessary align or clean. Are you using original Motorola charger? This solved my problem; I was trying to charge it with one of those "universal" chargers.

Hope this helps!

"unable to charge"

I had an old Motorola V3, which used to show me that error. It could result if the charger is not firmly connected to the phone. To diagnose this, try borrowing someone's moto charger. It's also possible that battery contacts could have dust. Try dusting them off so that they're nice and shinny as usual. Finally, try removing the battery for a few minutes, reinsert and charge, leave the phone off when you charge. The phone usually starts working after the regimen. If the problem persists, you'd know which method worked and what failed, so you can press for a warranty. Cheers

'Unable to Charge'?

COULD BE THE PHONE BUT MOST LIKELY ITS THE CHARGER, IF ITS AFTERMARKET GET RID OF IT AND BUY OEM, TRY AND TEST IT OUT WOULD A FREINDS MOTOROLA CHARGER SINCE THEY'RE MOSTLY THE SAME CHARGERS AND SEE IF YOU STILL GET THE MESSAGE.

My cell won't charge

I've had similar problem, and found that if I jiggled the charger prong, that it can make a connection. Sometimes, the connection is dusty or just not hitting the receptors in your phone. Hope that helps.
