Question about Audiovox CDM8940VW

1 Answer

Cell phone wont turn off

As of carrying it in a thunderstorm, my phone doesnt turn off without taking out the battery. If the battery goes completely dead, it is a challenge to get it to turn on and to make contact with the charger and start charging. I tried a "new" battery and the charge hold time is about the same as my old battery so I suspect it is not new but used. I did not buy it from VERIZON where I got my phone. My phone is AUDIOVOX CDM8940

2.If the battery level is low, charge the battery.

This is not likely a battery issue but is indicative of a phone that has gotten wet or has been infected with a virus or has other software issues. We work on cellular phones and would be willing to look at your phone to see if the phone numbers and pictures can be retrieved. Call 1-800-297-5550 and speak with Debby, 9 - 5, M - F, EST for shipping info. You can also contact Audiovox in NY to arrange for out-of-warranty repairs but they will not save your data as a part of the repairs.

SOURCE: bad contact charger

The charging port is bad, so you have to take it to a technician or get a universal or desktop charger to charge you battery.

My phone turned off and now it wont turn back on


Hello, First take the battery out and let set for 30 mins. without and put back in and try to power back up. If that doesn't work then either your charger isn't working, your battery is bad or your phone is bad. You can try replacing the charger or the battery, if that doesnt work will have to be repaired or replace.

Hi,
the phone might be completely flat. For you to test for that, you will need to leave it for about an hour or two to see if it will come on.

Then if it doesn't,that means the battery cell is too weak to power up the phone.

You will need replace battery.


Take care.

Charged, wont turn off/on


Try switching off the phone leave it off for some time and then switch it off...

If this doesnt remove the battery and put it back on... and then switch on the cell phone...

This must do the trick...

A small piece of advice mate... Never charge your phone for a whole night... Just put the cell phone for charge for some 2 - 3 hrs or till the batteries are fully charged... Your cell phone's battery would become weak if you charge for a considerably longer duration than required... And i am pretty sure that the problem you got now is joust because of that...

Hope this helped...

Wont turn off


First, take the battery out and put it back in to reset it. Then try again to see if you can manually turn it off.

This resets the phone and is the first step in troubleshooting.

Another thing I would do, is test to see if there is something wrong with the end button itself. With a flip phone, normally the end button is unneeded because you close it to hang up. Try ending a call using that button to see if it is a broken keypad issue.

I would also have the local store update the firmware, which should repair any files that may be corrupted, if that is the case.

Also, if the phone has any water damage (when you open the back of the phone, there will be a red dot instead of a white one), this can cause all sorts of crazy problems.

If none of the above solutions work, the only other way to power your phone off is just to remove the battery. You should be able to put the battery back in without the phone restarting, but if it does, just keep the battery out when you want the phone off.
