    I got mine in Hong Kong, but never used the phone there. When I got back to the States, the phone wouldn't charge no matter what charger I used. I tried to charge it using the USB cable, but the computer doesn't recognize the phone. Could it be a bad connector on the phone?

I have the same problem, but then I realized that the battery only charges through the battery desk charger that comes with the phone. Use that, if you have one.

Motorola phones are designed not to charge if the battery drains below a certain point as a safety measure. Normally the phone will shut off before the battery drains to this point but if your battery is bad or you bought one of those $5 batteries online this could happen. If this is the problem then you must charge the battery in a separate charger first and then just never let it go completely dead before charging it in the phone. Or better yet buy a decent battery to begin with.

I had the same problem also i found two things you could do, the first one if your computer does not charge the phone is because you need to install the drivers need to do this. you could find them on if you type motorola a1200 drivers in google or yahoo then install them in your computer. i also got my hands on a european charger and that worked i had to put on the us converter for it and that worked. hoped that help

My phone did the same thing, and all i did was plug it to the computer, it won't react at first but give it time. Once you pluged it to your computer it should on and just let it charge till complete.

Hi when i charge my motorola 1200a, I see on and off of screen, my battery is new.what I can to do?


Not sure I understand. Are you saying your MotoMing a1200 is rebooting with the new battery or what?

Have you tried charging it overnight with the phone off? If the battery is dead and you charge it with powered on it might power up then power off. Best to charge powered down if battery is fully depleted.

Motorola A1200 cell phone battery will not charge with AC chargers


If your phone is still under warranty the best solution is to get it replaced.The problem is actually with the port of the charger.I mean the hole in which you plug in your charger isn't working properly.Where as your USB port is different and works properly so it charges the battery.So you will have to get this repaired.

Touchscreen not responding

Hello Cutie,

I would try a master reset it will be your best option, just make sure that you try backing up any informaton to a pc or laptop, or install the motorola phone tools program in a computer and Sync your phone to the pc and then transfer all your numbers, pics and videos or documents u may have stored in there then perform the master reset. Of course if u are having touch screen failure then all this might be a problem. If none of this works for u then you are in trouble because if im not mistaken Motorola has no service repair department, maybe if u call them they may be able to exchange under manufacturers warranty if its under a year.

Good luck..

Motorola razr

doris Terry - you need to have the screen replaced on the first phone, the second one you bought from e-bay you need to do a master clear and rest on the phone....if that does not work try to have the phone firmware reflash from a mobile store technician.
