Question about HTC G1

1 Answer

If I shut off the phone it will charge but when I turn it on (while still on charger) it starts eating the battery down within 30 minutes its dead only stayin on by the charger but eventually dies. If I charge it and take it off charge it lasts maybe 30 or 45 minutes.I bought it from a friend so dont know if it has a virus or not. Ran anti virus and it said everything was fine.The light blinks on it, it doesnt stay solid like it should.What should I try before I spend 50 dollars on a battery.

How do I reboot batteries


Hi mike , you could try a car battery charger to bring the voltages up but this rarely works , sadly your batteries are nearly dead..

One thing to note , check the charger , if the charger bad then the batteries will reflect that ..

Samsung Galaxy S model SPH-D700 won't turn on, how can I fix this?


To reset the phone, it should be without power at all. So removing the battery, when the charger is connected, will not reset the phone. Then when the battery is dead, it could show up as if it is charged, because the voltage on the voltage sensor can become high enough, to indicate the battery is charged.
First, disconnect the charger, and remove the battery. Wait a few seconds and reinsert the battery. Try switching the phone on. If nothing happens, the most likely thing is you have a bad battery.
I hope there is no other issue.
Success.

How do I use a battery charger to charge my dead battery on a 2001 camaro


The red clamp on the charger goes to the + sign on the battery. The black goes to the -. I you want a deep charge(best) set the charger on 2 amps and run it for 8 to 12 hours. If you need to get the car started, set the charger on 225 amps for just a couple of minutes. Start the car while it is on..2 amps can charge forever. 20 amps for 30 minutes. 30 to 40 amps for 15 minutes. 225 amps for five minutes..DO NOT charge 20+ amps for hours. It will kill the battery

My HTC mobile wont turn on


Battery may be dead or just gone bad. If anything comes on the screen within 10 minutes after you connect the charger but the phone does not charge, your battery is dead or bad.If the battery wont keep charge, it's bad.

Batteries run down within 10 minutes after full charge


Either the charger is bad or the batteries are too old. If the batteries are allowed to go dead completely the 24 volt charger will not recover. You'll need to seperate the batteroes and use a 12 volt automotive charger to charge the batteries. Make sure the 12volt charger is able to charge gell cell batteries. Not all will.

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...


Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!

Motorcycle battery seems dead, help locating/replacing/charging


Yes it is the battery. First try charging it with trickle charger. NOT car battery charger. It should work fine once it is charged enough to start the bike. Than the bikes should keep it charged. Or you can jump it with car battery. This is safe. THe motorcyle battery is also 12 volts. Just smaller.

After the bike runs for 5-10 minutes and shut if off. Wait 5-10 minutes after it is off and try again. If it does not start again, than your battery is either dead or your stator/rectifier (your charge system) could be faulty. Lot cheaper to get battery for $30 than to pay $75 hourly shop fees for testing and than repairing.
