backflip charging issues

2011-02-02, 6:55 AM

hi guys, I'm a backflip newbie and i can't seem to get it to charge! I'm using the wall charger and the green light comes on, then up comes the motorola white screen, there's some vibration, the white screen stays on for about 10-20 secs and then the light and the screen turn off.  About 10 secs later up comes the screen and the vibration and the light again and then it disappears! it just keeps cycling like this.  I can't turn the phone on while charging and when i try taking it off the charger to turn on it stays off as well .  I've manually rebooted - when it lets me - twice now.  Any help much appreciated!

Solved! See the solution

If the green light (just where the charger is hooked) flicks on and off.. this shows the battery is totally drained out.

I would suggest - take the battery out..and then reinsert it.. and then plug the charger and forget it for an hour or so.. it should work fine then.. if not.. try with another charger or another battery ...

Question - is it really advised to buy a new charger or battery . ?

Suggestion : Try hooking the phone to any charger which is readily available on many hotspots (free of cost) which will confirm on the same , and then you will get to know the real scenario.

And also, some shops do have some test handsets from where u can test the battery and assure them that u will buy if it works..

Thanks again Harry - have done that and was about to walk away and it flicked off again as i sit here and type it's back to the same problem - i've only just bought the phone - it's brand new maybe it's faulty? i don't understand how i can plug it into the charger and it continues to not charge/drain itself!

I would go back to the store (bring your charger) and ask to try a new battery and test it by plugging it in while still in the store.
