BB Curve 8900 :: Device Not Charging - Battery Level Does Not Change

Nov 4, 2009

I have a 3 month old 8900 that's recently started behaving in an odd manner:I plug it in to charge, with the phone on and all the radios on, and the yellow flash charging icon is present on the battery icon. But maybe 8 hours later (overnight) the battery level has not changed.

I fiddle about a bit: maybe unplug it and plug it back in; maybe turn it off and on; maybe pull the battery; maybe charge it for a short while in standby; and eventually the phone starts to take charge and perhaps after an hour is at 100% from, say, 50%.I'm not sure exactly what I've done, if anything, to kick it into charging, but it does appear as if that's what I've done.

Oct 18, 2011

My Motorola Charm's battery life went all the way to 0% because I couldn't get to my charger in time, but now everytime I try plugging it into the charger, it won't charge up. I even tried charging it for 2 days, and still the screen says 0%, and the phone won't turn on no matter what.

HTC :: S640 Battery Level After Turning Device On (or After Reboot)

Dec 29, 2008

I have an HTC model, the S640 "Iris" on Telus network, which exhibits an odd battery level behavior. Rebooting (or turning it on from an off state) causes a significant drop in battery level of about 15% each time which seems excessive.I'm wondering what users of other HTC devices are getting when they perform a similar action. Would readers please share their experience in the following simple test?

1. Fully charge the battery with phone on. (This ensures a 100% charge at start. I'm assuming you are charging the battery while inside the phone.)
2. Unplug charger. (Make sure to do this.)
3. Reboot. (Off followed immediately by on.)
4. What is the battery level? (For accuracy, this should be the percent level, not the number of bars on the home screen.)

I get an average of 84%. You don't have to do this several times as I did but the range I got was 73 to 88% with majority being in the mid-80s.As a little bit of variant, if I charged the battery with phone off during step 1, I end up with a tad less than 84% indicating the battery acquires extra charge if phone was on.Either way, if repeated without recharging back up to 100%, it drops by around 15% each time all the way down to near zero. With some other tests I have performed, I theorize it is not a "real" 15% drop (for example, it takes far less time to recharge back up to 100% than if the 15% drop was caused by actual airtime/standby). At this early stage of testing, I suspect the battery meter is involved but not necessarily the sole culprit - it could be wrongly interacting with electronics within the battery. Perhaps it is the software which retains the lowest point in the momentary negative spike as the new baseline when establishing the battery level. I believe the lithium energy store per se is fine.

At 15% drop for each reboot, whether "real" or not, is of concern in the following manner. The phone behaves as if the new lower level is true. So when the level reaches near zero through repeated reboots, it will not last too long - I have found that to be true. Suppose you reboot several times in a day such as during meetings or some social engagement. The device reaches critically low battery level much sooner than expected particularly if you were unaware of this rebooting phenomenon. That could cause an inconvenient situation let alone during a need to use the phone in an emergency.

BB Curve 8900 :: Phone Won't Turn On - Tried Charging - Battery Pull

May 28, 2009

I've never had any issues with my charging issues, no on/off issues but yesterday I turned off my Curve to remove the SIM card to check out my daughter's Pearl. When I replaced my SIM back into my Curve and replaced the battery nothing happened. The phone was charged prior to about 75%. I've removed the battery again and don't see anything wrong i.e. nothing on gold connection bars and the phone's gold prongs are not bent. No water damage either. But, whenever I hold down the "end" button nothing happens. I've tried charging with a wall charger to no avail. The phone is about a year old, granted, but it is well taken care of. Any suggestions?

Oct 28, 2009

My blackberry 8900 isnt charging anymore. I tried different chargers from friends and nothing worked. Even USB data cable doesn't work. The battery is Ok because I could recharge it separately in other phones. the indicator of charging goes on for 2 seconds when I pull out the charger from the phone. I ordered another original wall charger and I will see whether it would work or not.

BB Curve 83xx :: Battery Is Not Charging Properly / Device Turned Off

Jul 1, 2010

The phone doesnt stay on. Unless the charger is in the phone, it says, "battery drain, now shutting down". I've bought a new battery and that doesnt change it. Sometimes I play around with the phone and the battery is not low battery and works until I take the battery out of the phone. Then it just goes to low battery again. I dont know what needs to be changed or what needs to be done.

BlackBerry :: The Charging Source Connected To Device Cannot Charge You Battery

Dec 12, 2011

i have collected probably 15 different chargers the last couple of years that I use at various locations to charge my Blackberry, iPhone, and a couple of Samsung Google Nexus Phones. That is every device other than the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the Torch before that. I get the familiar message "the charging source connected to your blackberry device cannot charge your battery", except when connected to RIM manufactured charger or fortunately the USB port on my laptop. How in the world can every phone other than RIM's Blackberry take a charge from the various power sources without problem. I had the problem to some degree on the Torch, but figured RIM would catch on and get it fixed. Now I have the new Bold 9900 and it does not even work on my trusted 12V car charger. If 4 or 5 different devices work with multiple chargers and the Bold 9900 does not work on any it has to be a RIM and BLACKBERRY problem.Maybe the guys in Waterloo are just totally insulated from the rest of the world and only own BlackBerry phones with Blackberry chargers and believe there is not a problem. At least it appear that way with this charger issue and several other issues, but I won't get deeper into that here?

BB Curve :: 8900 Won't Show Its Charging

Jun 20, 2009

Recently sometime when I plug my phone into the wall charger or USB cord to charge it, the phone doesn't show its charging. I first thought it was the wall socket i had it in but that didn't matter. I would reboot the phone turn it off and on and nothing works. My phone is new barely got it beginning of May and i leave the charger in one place i don't move it around so its odd for the phone to be doing that.

BB Tour 9630 :: Device Not Charging - Gives "low Battery" Message

Dec 30, 2009

First of all, I want to appologize as this is a pretty stupid question. I'm brand new to the blackberry and just don't want to ruin my new phone! So I plugged it in to charge it (The little lightning bolt was in the battery bar thing) but upon coming back about an hour later, it said "low battery". I checked under options and it said 2% remaining. It's just plugged into the wall via the cord given to me. It lights up when its plugged in, I just dont get why its not charging!

IPhone :: Missing Battery Level IP 4

Jun 24, 2010

So, I opted to do a restore on the new iPhone 4 from a 3G running iOS4 image. Everything seems to have restored just fine but I've noticed that the battery level percentage isn't being reported on the top of the screen. I've crawled through the settings and can't find anything on changing this.Was wondering if anyone else had run into this or if I'm going to need to bite the bullet and build the phone up from scratch. To be honest this shouldn't be necessary, but could be my only option.

BTW, my reason for doing the restore is simply a matter of data. I have several apps that contain 2 or more years of information. Most have a "save/restore" feature but several don't. Even those that do have their own unique way of saving which will add time to building the new phone.

BB Curve 8900 :: Battery Low And Now It Won't Turn On - Tried Battery Pull

Apr 17, 2009

I fell asleep and I guess my battery was low because when I woke up the phone was dead. I plugged it in and the red light turned on, so I thought it would be charging. It has been plugged in for about 2 hours and nothing. I try to turn it on and it won't turn on. I tried taking the battery out for a few minutes and putting it back in - it still won't turn on. The only thing that happens is the red light just stays on. It doesn't blink or anything, it just stays on. I'm very new to the world of Blackberries, I just got this phone about a week and a half ago.
