Eseries / Communicators :: E7 Has Not Been Damaged In Any Way But The Charging Port Is Faulty?
Nov 1, 2011
My E7 is 6 months old. The phone has not been damaged in any way but the charging port is faulty. I have tried different chargers and the same problem, , you have to wiggle the lead to make connection. Vodafone told me that this would be a wear and tear issue and therefore not covered under warranty. RUBBISH I say! If it has worn out then the phone is not "fit for purpose" I have spoken to Nokia who have advised me that they are seeing a problem with the charging port on a small number of the E7's. Nokia need to make Vodafone aware of this issue and Vodafone need to start listening to they loyal customer of over 20 years!
I have a 9700 and over the last 2 days when I try to make a call the phone switches between headphones and headset and if I try to select options and activate headset the phone completely ignores the request and keeps switching between functions , the only way I can make a call is to put ipod headphones into the jack port and then I can select activate handset and the phone will let me make a call normally , however if I pull the headphones out during a call it will start to switch between functions again .
The E7-00 was updated to the latest Symbian Belle softwareRecently a problem started to appear in the USB connection.After connecting the phone through a USB cable the USB port on the PC (Windows XP current version) signals a power problem. ( Power surge on the hub port, Pc shuts itself off)
My usb port for mini pro got damaged,It is not covered under warranty(Ok,I am not gonna fight for this with Sony,let it be).I can still charge the phone,But the pc wont detect it.I am pretty sure it is a physical damage and not a firmware one because It started the day I tried to plug an invalid charger(Dont ask me abt it)
My confusions are
1.How much would it cost me to replace the port(Am pretty sure it would need to be repaired)?
2.Which is the best service Centre for Sony in Bangalore?
I have a black E7, and lately I have found that whenever I plug in a cable to the usb port it sits very loose and will not work properly, I think is has to do with the weird shape, it is recatangular but the charge cable and normal microUSB connector.Anyway the problem with the usb connector means the phone won't charge/connecto to the computer unless I;
I have Nokia E72 and I have problem with USB chargin. Now the phone is with low battery and the Power Saving mode is automatic activated. I plug USB on phone and PC (Win7), charging started, and after few seconds, charging stops. I try to restart phone, PC and plung and unplug UBS, but the problem still exist. This situation I have in the car too
I damaged my usb port on my Samsung galaxy s5 phone. Before getting it serviced, can I just purchase a wireless charging cover and pad and charge it that way? Since nothing is being plugged into the actual port, it should work right?
Luckily, I have a friend's battery until my replacement phone arrives tomorrow, but there's no way for me to transfer my contacts over. Is there any way, short of taking down each contact by hand, that I can back up my contacts?
The part on my BB Curve 8330 where you charge/sync it is loose and starting to fall out. I'm unable to charge/sync my phone anymore. Is there a way I can save all the information on my phone without syncing it?? I don't even remember the last time I did it, so I know there's a lot of new info on my phone. Also, does anyone know if this is covered under the Verizon Warranty?? I would appreciate any help ya'll could offer me! Thanks so much!!!
I've had my E72 for about a year and a half now, and whereas originally I could charge it via USB, it stopped doing this after a software update. Soft resets, hard resets, OS update: nothing helps.
To clarify what exactly happens:I connect the E72 via USB. It beeps long, indicating that it's connected to 'PC suite', and short, indicating that it started charging.It keeps charging whilst the backlight is on.As soon as the backlight goes off, charging stops. The only way to have it charge again (at least, until the screen goes black again) is by removing and re-inserting the USB cable.
On a side note, it's this kind of behaviour, plus that the latest software update meant that you always go back to the top of the page when choosing 'back' in the browser (not a good thing on a smartphone - well, at least they fixed the text select), and the fact that OVI suite (compulsory if you want to do anything useful with your phone, like maps) fills up two-thirds of the screen with this useless shop of theirs, that I've come to the conclusion that my next phone is not going to be a Nokia - a brand I've been using since the late 90's.
But until my employer gives me an Android phone, it'd be nice if I could charge the E72 via USB.
Today my E72 just started "charging" without being attached to electric charger or USB. It's charging for couple minutes and then stops. And that happens every half hour. I will turn it off, take out the battery and hopefully it will stop.This phone is becoming more and more buggy. At first it was fast and everything worked gr8. After time it started to give me error messages, memory messages and so on.
The touchscreen on my E7 becomes unresponsive while charging. Essentially it seems to be losing it's accuracy. It stilll works somewhat but you have to tap all over the screen to get a response, and then it's not the one you want.
I have a problem with my E5. I shut it down and charge it. When it's fully charged I remove the charger and the charging screen with the small battery in the top right corner doesn't go away. It stays in that screen. Then, when I turn it back on, immediately the password screen appears, without the Nokia/hands logo start screen and I get a notification, something to do with not being able to disable energy save mode. When I shut it down and start it up again, everything is normal. However, the problem with the charging screen is annoying to me.
I did the update yesterday, and today i did charge it for a couple of hours, but now it has stopped charging completey. even through the usb connected to a PC, even a car charger and the direct wall charger. i Have two towers of the battery remaining. The computer does not regonise the device also. Could the port be damaged? or is it a software problem??
Just bought Nokia E5, 3 days ago!...Turned off the phone, put it on charge. A little sound indicated that the phone was fully charge after two hours, the screen was indicating that the battery was fully charged. Removed the plug from the outlet, to my suprise...the screen remained lit up, still indicating that the battery was full. I waited for several minutes, it was still the same. So i turned it on. Then i turned it off again, put it on charge again and the poblem was the same!
i have a nokia 5130-c2 xm for about a year and a half but i only used it for about 11 months but the other months it went for repairs 3 times. 1st time it displayed a massage "contact service"(needed a firmware upgrade from version 6.6). 2nd & 3rd time it never wanted to boot like when windows on your pc never loaded. Now the 4th time is near, not even a month has passed since i went to collect my repaired phone. Would you say the device its self is faulty or just the firmware. I never went to sites that could send me viruses or use any other themes(custom) just wanna know if i should request a new phone since i still have 6 months of warranty left.
I purchased a 9360 in January of this year from O2 UK. Yesterday my charging port came out and was stuck to the end of my charger. I have lost my receipt, although shouldn't it come up on O2's system I bought it from them once I provide my details? I have read on here the charging port coming out has been a problem with other bb users and would like to know if this problem is covered by the 1 year warranty?
My 8330 just started to have problems with its usb/charge port. I plugged it in last night before bed like I always do, but when I woke up it hadn't charged a bit and wasn't even recognizing that it had been plugged in. I tried my USB data cable as well, and that didn't register either unless I wiggled the cord around and held it still once it did register. I eventually did get the phone to register that I had plugged it in, but I had to wiggle the cord just so and leave the charger half-way plugged in once I found the sweet spot.
My contract is 10months into a two year contract & my charghing port has broken. I have read on numerous forums that this seems a common fault but there asking for £65 to repair it which I dont have so hence i now have no phone & am still paying for a contract. anyone else heard of thie problem. I also wanted to email blackberry but ther seems to be no way of contacting them this way.
I have a Pearl 8100 I stopped using because the charging port got damaged and there was no way to charge it anymore. Other than that, the phone is in perfect working order. I saw somewhere that the port can be changed. How easy is it to do so? Any videos out there on how its done? I probably wont do it myself anyway, but very curious to know.
I plugged it into the wall, usb, docks, everything. Nothing happens. I can't see a water damage indicator and i cleaned out the port on my phone very well, not sure what can be done, and if need be can it be replaced at an Apple Store?
After reading about this, I was redirected to down-load a driver so that my PC could charge the EM 330 battery though a USB port. However! There are TWO drivers and the instructions say, choose the one for your phone! There is no indication which driver would be associated or appropriate for my phone! Since I was directed there beginning with questions about the EM330, can I ASSUME that BOTH will work or then which one do I choose to install on my PC ?
