Nokia Nseries :: Brand New 603 Intermittent Charging
Jan 31, 2012
Just bought a brand new nokia 603 as a gift to partner but almost cannot charging by adapter (charge by USB to laotop still OK). Very disappoint. The new guy is lying on Nokia care and be disassembled T_T. How can Nokia QC procedure passed a basic prolem?
my Nokiaa 5800's battery started dying and then it started swelling up (!). I left the phone as usual on my computer table and when I woke up in the morning, the battery was dead and when I plugged in the charger, it started charging. Then after a few hours the phone shut off by itself and didn't turn on, no matter what I did (didn't even turn on when I plugged it into the charger) so I went to the Nokia store and bought a new battery ) exactly like my old one. I put it in but the phone didn't turn on. |I plugged the charger in but the phone still didn't turn on. I took out the memory card and SIM card and tried turning it on but it STILL didn't turn on -___-. I then took out the battery and lightly pushed the copper pins at the bottom (where part of the battery goes into) and then the phone turned on. I put on (or rather, taped back on ), the back cover and the phone turned off. I didn't turn off straight away but in a weird way. You know how, when you update the firmware, then it starts loading (loading bar) horizontally and then the phone screen turns white and some funky colored vertical lines appear? Well, that's what happened and how it turned off.
In order to keep safe the USB port, I use a magnetic charging cable. Days ago I've try to use the USB port and the behavior was weird, each 2 seconds the connection change between USB and Magnetic Port (Fake)... then the battery starts to discharge very fast, becomes hot and stop the charging. USB Connection with PC have no problems and the charging with Magnetic Port is also right... I already tryed to restart the phone, and flash a new firmware.
Symptoms: Phone wont charge. right off the box. Says "Battery cannot be charged, please use a Sony Ericsson Battery". It is a Sony Ericsson battery. It is a Sony Ericsson charger. Everything came out of the box.
I just opened it, and first thing I did was plug it into the wall. Now, I have installed the update service, tells me phone is up to date (downloaded straight from sonyericsson.com). I have installed Phone suite 6.01; tried a repair phone, aborts with an error when it comes to the update service (right after the remove batery, press C while connecting phone part). Also same thing with car charger.
I've had my N8 for a year and a week.Four days ago when I wanted to turn up my phone it kept loading for several minutes then the hands logo appeared but froze int the middle.After the hands logo froze the phone kept loading again for several minutes then the hands logo appeared again . I tried pressing the power off button for 8 seconds but the phone only turned off,and when I tried to start my phone it did the same. I send it to Nokia Care but they said they couldnt do anything because they probably think there is something wrong with the motherboard. I don't know what to do anymore.
Occasionally my N97 displays the out of memory error when I try and look at a new sms (taskman displays at least 34mb free). When that happens ALL my messages disappear, sms, email the lot. Gone.I can sometimes get them back by removing the battery and praying but it doesn't always work.
I have another annoying adventure with N8. It was turned off, charging via USB, then the morning alarm worked, i pressed "snooze", device froze with the message "Alarm snoozed for 5 minutes" on the screen.
It does not react on pressing the turn on/off button.
On any other phone I would just take off the battery. On a PDA I would use the little pinhole button to restart. Neither is possible with this "gorgeous" n8. It never freezes, aha.
So now it's morning, i need to go to work, and instead i'm trying to start the freaking phone. You're losing fans, Nokia. This is the most problematic smartphone i had.
I sent by N8 to a Nokia care point in October 2012 as the bottom piece that enters the battery compartment had broken in one corner and thought I'd better get it fixed before the warranty expired in November 2012. When it was returned I checked it turned on and reloaded some of the software, however I then requested an unlock code from orange UK and that was the end of that as I had already made my sim into a mini sim for my new Nokia 808. Although I have just received an unlock code from orange (another story altogether) however when I turned my phone on the battery was nearly depleted.When trying to charge it with the mini jack, the battery icon doesn't change to indicate it is charging, I have tried many different Nokia chargers with the mini jack and it does nothing. When I plug it into my laptop it recognizes it as a Nokia N8 and connects to Nokia suite OK, it then tries to charge showing the nokia logo, and dot sequence but then disappears and stops charging. I have also tried starting the charge on my 808 pureview USB charger and then plugging the charger back into the N8 to the same effect as plugging it into the laptop.
When I try to charge it using my PC's USB port, the PC will try and identify it as a flash drive, but it will then bomb out - this is an endless cycle (the sound Windows makes when adding USB Flash drive and then removing it). Using different USB ports has the same result. I am not sure whether charging occurs, but after 10min or so I am still unable to switch the phone on.So I went to the device manager and I can see it reloading each time the N97 tries to register as a USB device. Then I went and looked at which port the N97 is connected to (open each USB root hub and look at the Power tab - ie refresh each time the new device found sound is played from Windows - the USB hub that will be connected to the phone will be indicated by "nokia usb flashing parent"). By disabling the applicable hub, the phone actually showed the Nokia logo on a white screen with the battery life indicator (non charging)when I then re-enabled the USB Root Hub, the display remained on the phone and it started charging.Without disabling the hub the phone would just continue to endlessly find and then discard the "flash drive".I was using Windows XP SP3.Nokia OVIsuite 188.8.131.52 I did manually terminate any Nokia processes prior to disabling the USB Root Hub (not sure how many tried to rerun again)finally it is charging again. Wasn't too keen on what happened, because I don't carry the charger with me when traveling abroad.
I realize I'm careless for letting my battery die so often, but I have trouble unlocking my phone if I:let the battery die and the phone shut itself offplug the usb charger into my computer and the phoneturn on the phoneI end up being unable to unlock the phone. If I press the power button or menu button, I am prompted with the message "Use keyguard switch to unlock screen and keys" But sliding the keyguard switch has no effect.
My N8 starts charging the battery every time I plug it into the USB port of my laptop, even though the battery is with over 80%/Can I disable charging when it is connected to the USB? ORCan I configure it anywhere so it starts charging only when it is below 20%?
I am using my mobile Nokia N97 connected to PC for net browsing (with dial up connection). The phone has only one connecting usb slot for battery charger & data cable. While net connection is on with data cable for long time, the battery is discharging in short time. How to recharge the phone battery with data cable simultaneously while net surfing.

I've just purchased a Nokia 808 from Singapora and tried using Joikuspot. Unfortunately for some reason it fails to start a connection. I've made sure that BOTH mobile data and wifi are on as well. When I start the program, it asks if I want to start a connection (to which I say yes), I choose AT&T Internet and wait. I can see the 3G internet icon start up, but the wifi icon (or transmitting icon) never appears and the message "Connection failed, Connection unavailable" appears up at the top.
I've tried reinstalling Joikuspot (well, I purchased the premium version actually), reinstalling the phone software (via Nokia Suite) and doing a factory reset with no success. Internet and other apps seem to work fine under 3G and wifi as well so I'm not sure what's going on.
just wondering is it necessary to get a nokia brand car charger or any other brand would do? If other brands are ok, do I need to watch out for the voltage of the charger? What do I need to look out for and how?
I just purchased a brand new Nokia 5800 from Amazon yesterday. The phone works great, but I'm not so sure about the screen. It looks fine, but when I have a white background such as when using the web browser it looks kind of smudged. It's not an issue of the phone actually being smudged, because I've cleaned it several times. The screen just looks kind of fuzzy and it's just not as clear as I had hoped. Is this just as good as it gets for screen quality on the 5800, or is it my phone?
I'm experiencing intermittent interruptions in my Wi-Fi signal with the G4, with it starting only in the past 3 days (I don't know what could have triggered this to happen). I have disabled IPV6, updated the router firmware, turned off NFC on my phone, cleared Google Play data, and removed/added my network. I still have the problem. I know it's pretty much a phone issue because my tablet is fine and while I can access my Plex LAN with my tablet, I can't with my phone. So short of a hard reset or waiting on Marshmallow (which may be for a long time, as I'm on Verizon).
I recently had intermittent freezing on the phone -- in apps (new and old), on the lock screen, on the launcher. After searching the Web, I did everything recommended--numerous soft resets, a couple of hard resets, consulted Samsung's technical chat room, took the phone to Samsung's local kiosk for a forced software update--nothing worked and the end result was that Samsung said it was a hardware problem and that I needed to send the phone in to Samsung for a look at the hardware. Before doing that, I looked at the system and saw that it did not show any storage information for the SD card. I replaced the SD card and it fixed the problem--the phone is operating just fine. It would have saved me a lot of aggravation if somewhere along the line someone had thought to look at the SD card -- apparently a bad SD card can cause system instability on the S5.
I have an Iphone 4s with ios 5.1. I go to college out of the country and therefore use VOIP apps w/ push notification. I noticed that when my screen is off for a few minutes, the phone will not receive push notificaitons right away. (I test this by calling myself) The phone acts like WIFI has gone to sleep, but a few minutes later, it will wake up and show the notification. Another way I can immediately get it to show the notification is to turn the phone on myself. I tried restoring the iphone and turning off cellular data and am having the same problem.
The ringer on my 6350 sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I had my first 6350 replaced by AT&T for the same reason but now the new one, about 4 months old, has developed the same problem. AT&T agree that the problem is not unusual but have no suggestions to correct and the replacement phone is outside the 3 month warranty. The problem may be related to the media player controls on the front of the phone.
My BB Curve 8900 intermittently switches off for no apparent reason. It starts up again with a blank screen, takes about 2/3 minutes & then boots up again. It loses the page it was on. any ideas on what the issue is & how I can fix it?
i just bought a few days ago. But i got problem when voice call. Within minutes it will disconnect seems no line at all..but i try using another phone and call the same number, its functioning..no disconnect..means providers line got no problem..2nd thing about my 4k video..cant record more than 5 minutes. It will appear "too hot, need to close"..
My Nexus 6P has the bootloader unlocked but is running completely stock, un-rooted, vanilla android (MDB08M). Project Fi is my carrier. When I am at home and on *most* wireless networks, I see no issue. While I am at work, my wifi constantly disconnects and reconnects. I will pick up my phone, and it will either A) not have wifi (though I have previously been connected) and quickly reconnects or B) Will have wifi, but after some amount of use, will disconnect from wifi, then reconnect a few seconds later.
I've tried all the simple items:Making sure "Keep wifi on during sleep" or whatever the setting is is turned on turn off optimization on Google Connectivity Services
I turned on verbose wifi logs and was able to catch a logcat of when the issue occured. The disconnect occured at almost exactly 9:29:00, as I saw my wifi go out and then almost immediately after the clock tick 9:29. I can't find anything in particular that stands out as the cause or leads to a solution.
I assume it is some misunderstanding between my job's wireless network and my phone. My previous phone (Nexus 4) had none of these issues. I am unclear on whether this is a Marshmallow issue, Project Fi issue, or what software might be causing it. Since it only happens on this certain network, I am making the assumption it is most likely software and not a faulty wireless chip. I have no control over the wireless configuration of the network, so anything on that end is a non-starter.
I have a hard time tethering from XOOM to Laptop, after I reinstalled my Window VISTA laptop, and since I upgraded XOOM to 4G. I don't know whether it is 4G upgrade or VISTA that causes the problem. Sometime, it works the first attempt to connect, the other time i have to reboot my laptop a couple of times.My remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device driver is current. My Laptop saw XOOM drive fine no problem( I did installed Motorola Driver). And I attempted to do a soft reboot (Vol up + Power button), it shown the battery level and hung there for a long time (1 to 2 minutes maybe). I think i don't know how to do a soft reboot the right way.However, I can tether to my laptop, but i have to reboot my laptop a couple times. I did try to unplug and replug the USB cable and then set xoom to tethering/hot spot in both wifi and 3g/4g. It failed to connect unless I reboot the machine.My xoom is 3.2.2 with HLK75D build number.
