I replaced LG 800 - 800mAh Battery with a 1000mAh battery but the phone will not take a charge.On attempting to charge the screen & keypad flash on and off .Returning to my old battery everything works...
Hi, the problem you are having is with the new battery, their is a chip in the old battery that matches exactly with the phones make and model, now as the new battery is slightly different the phone is not picking up the signal and is going into safe mode to prevent damage being done by a battery that could be over powering the phone, if it was an older phone it would work as their is no chip in the battery but these newer phones have to match exactly with the correct parts else it will just put itself into safe mode to prevent any further damage being done by over powering the phone.
all you need to do is get the same battery as the one that was in the phone, if you take your phone to one of those independent phone shops they may be able to match a better battery up for you that will last longer in your phone.
now here is a tip
when you get a new battery its best if once a month you let it go totally flat keep switching the phone on until it wont switch on any more, then give it a full charge, doing this prevents bad cells forming in the battery and this will keep the life of the battery at its best, they dont tell you this when you buy the phone but they should do.
if you never let the battery go totally flat then this causes the cells to not charge properly and then this causes bad cells to form then when you charge the battery the cell wont get a full charge and then the phones battery life will decrease so let the battery go totally flat once a month and this will keep the battery life at its fullest and will keep your phone working for longer.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
