Exclamation Won't charge past 68%

I bought an HTC One V for Virgin Mobile. I haven't activated it yet, but I've been using it on WiFi and getting it all set up (downloading apps, getting used to the phone, adding contacts, setting up email, etc.).

I noticed 2 days ago that it was weird that the phone didn't last me all day without a charge, but I assumed it was the phone "getting used to my habits", as I've read about. Last night around 5pm I turned the phone off, put it on the charger, and left it alone. Around 10pm I turned it back on and it was only at 68% charged. I thought, whatever, it'll charge by morning, and left it on (screen off). This morning at 4:30am I looked at the Battery screen (in Settings) and it said "68% - discharging" !!!! I unplugged it from the wall and got "68% - not charging", which is to be expected. Then I plugged it back in and it says "68% - charging". It has been plugged in since then (about 90 minutes) and it hasn't charged any further.

Any ideas? I'm running a standard phone here, no rooting or whatever. I am using the wall charger that came in the box from Virgin Mobile.

Please help!!

UPDATE: I saw somewhere that since you can't remove the battery there's another way to basically "remove and reinsert" the battery. For anyone who comes to this forum looking for an answer: hold the power button for 10 seconds and your phone will reset. For now, my problem is fixed.

Others have reported the same issue issue where the phone doesn't appear to charge past a certain percentage. It's happened once to me. The best resolution has been to let the battery run down all the way to empty and let the phone shutdown. After that, it will charge to 100% again.

Some people suspect that the phone is charging fully, but that the phone/Android simply isn't displaying the percentage correctly.

Thanks for your help!

How long should the re-charge from 0% battery take, using the wall charger?

I don't recall how long mine took from 0, but my One V always charges reasonably quickly. For example, this morning my phone was at 35%, and it charged to 100% in about 90 minutes.

When it stops charging do the hold power button reset method it will reset and will come back on at 100%

OK... So is this something I should be concerned about? I bought the phone just 2 weeks ago, so I can return/get a replacement if that's a better idea in the long run...

I though about merging these two threads for having the exact same title.

Won't charge past 68%
Won't charge past 86%

Maybe I'm dyslexic!


Try this: Reboot into bootloader, select FASTBOOT and POWER OFF. Then plug in the USB cable and charge it until the LED turns green, unplug it and turn the phone back on. It should be at 100%.

Hah. I wasn't sure what the difference was until I opened both links. What is bootloader? Is that something for rooted devices? If so, this is not a rooted device...

I read this on a different forum

"Had the same issue after a couple weeks of getting my one v. Phone wasnt charging past % and kept saying discharging. Found a solution: 1. Go to power settings turn off fast reboot or boot 2. Turn off phone and charge.
Don't turn it on till the led turns green.it should charge all the way to 100%."

If I do not turn off fast-boot and then turn the phone off before charging it, the green light never turns on and the battery thinks that it’s around 80% charged. I am probably bothered more by the green light not turning on. It is a quick indicator that it is charged and I can unplug it.

This seems to be a lot of work to get the phone to report that it is 100% charged (green light and internal readout). There may be other work-arounds but we should not have to do anything but plug the phone in!!

I had this happen yesterday. I woke up unplugged my phone, it had been charging all night, and the battery was only about at 80 percent. I held the power button down about 10secs and mine was fully charged again. Strange...

You have to turn it off then back on.. It's a glitch if you don't let your phone die the first week you get it.

I don't think this has anything to do with how new the phone is or whether or not you let the battery go through a full charge/discharge cycle. I got a brand new One V and I had this problem on the second day I owned it. I let the battery discharge all the way and then charge back to 100% uninterrupted, phone was fine for a day or two, then I started having the problem again.

Since rooting and clearing the Dalvik cache I haven't seen the problem again, but it's only been four days. No idea if this is a permanent fix, but clearing the Dalvik cache never hurt anything...

I've also had this same issue. It looks like it isn't charged all the way, but if I power cycle, it shows 100%...Oh well, as long as my battery is charged, I don't really care that much..
