Question about Motorola Mobility i560 Cellular Phone

I560 powers off for no reason

I'm on my 3rd I560 this year & they all do the same thing. Turn it on in the morning (after charging overnight) & at random times during the day the unit has powered off. It will not power back up unless you remove the battery & reinset it. Then it will work fine from 10 minutes to 2 days. The local Nextel dealer hasn't been any help & this is a company phone that my boss is always giving me grief about. HELP!

    I am having the same problem with my I560, It will be on then off, I have to remove the battery and then put it back in order to complete my call or to try to place a call. This is a pain. I am also receiving a message of Improper charger when I hook up the chrager sent to me from Nextel. No help from service yet.

    I've had a i560 for about a month and then all of the sudden it started powering off. Have to take out the battery and replace it to get the phone to re-start. Stays on for 1min to 1/2 a day then shuts down again. Took it in to the Nextel store and they had no fix. Tried to clean the contacts between the phone and the battery but doesn't seem to help, Please let me know if you have a solution.

I discovered that the problem is the battery. I was having the same problem and it was extremely frustrating. I've had two of this phone and when my newer one started having the problem, I popped the batter into the old one just to see what would happen. Turns out the old phone now has the same problem and I never had that problem with the old phone. I haven't had a chance to try a different batter, but I am pretty sure that the problem lies with the battery, not the phone.

This could be due to a liquid or physical damage issue. The only way to know is to stop by a local service and repair center. This is covered completely by Sprint Nextel's ESRP (Equipment Service & Repair Program) and TEP (Total Equipment Protection), and can be done at any Sprint Nextel Service & Repair Location. If you do not subscribe to ESRP or TEP, the charge for the repair will be no more than $55.

2010 Ford fusion I left the parking lights on overnight and find battery dead the next morning. I charged battery overnight, but still could not start engine. When key is turned it displays the battery...

Well contact your dealer and tell them that your battery is gone bad for no reason and don't mention you let the light overnight because your battery is under warranty and they will put in a new one. Good luck

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last

Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

I can't turn my canon i560 on. It is about 4

Try different outlets and if you still don't get power then for sure the printer is bad at that point.

Our i560 suddenly will no longer turn on

Sure it is, try removing the inks and then the printhead. If it will power up with them out, you need a new printhead. Don't put the old one back in as you could fry the logic pcb. The printhead part number is stamped on the side.

Take the SUV to an autoparts store that features free charging diagnostic tests. They will determine if the alternator is putting out sufficient power to recharge your battery. There's also a very good chance your battery is dead. It's not uncommon for a battery to need replacing (especially in a truck with all the bells and whistles I'm sure the Santa Fe has) after 4-5 years. It's also important to ensure there's no corrosion around the battery posts/cables (will have a white or green powdery appearance). Corrosion would prevent the battery from accepting a full charge.

I hope this clarifies your problem. It's unlikely the alarm system is the culprit provided it's not "going off" all day long. Best of luck and please feel free to post back with any other questions.

Won't turn on

Have you recently installed a 3rd Party application? The fix will be to reinstall the handheld OS.
** Please remember to do a device backup first before attempting the OS reload.

Printer suddenly dead

It's possible the power supply died, however, there is a 3amp fuse on the slide in power unit that could have blown. I would check it before taking it to the recycling pile. If you mess with it be careful around capacitors, they'll hold a charge even if not connect to power for several days.

Just "turned off"....

Was it charging over the weekend? If not, try to recharge the device again... Those devices would on occasion drain the batter overnight -- didn't happen all the time and was apparently caused by unusual software/applications combinations... The battery could be going bad again as well.
