Remove the battery. Reinsert after 5 seconds.
Try holding down volume down, send key, and power. Let go off all buttons when the phone vibrates at the Huawei screen. Click factory reset using trackball. Click yes. After that is done, select wipe cache partition. Select yes, and phone will turn off, but all apparently,settings, and contacts will be lost. Contacts could be recovered by signing in to Google account.

I am having the same problem. I cannot find any solutions. Has this been resolved yet?

also, at metro they said that the blinking lights is a battery issue....but my battery is putting 3.7v through the phone. I tested it at the connection points in the phone while the battery was plugged in.

Try holding the Volume UP(Instead of volume down),SEND,& POWER ON button.If that doesn't work,try re-booting w/the phone plugged in to the A/C wall outlet,& then,remove the battery.

Default How I got my Ascend Battery to charge...

I just got a new battery for my Huawei Ascend
(3.7V 1500mAH (5.6Wh) Li-Polymer, Model: HB4F1)

...and was LIVID that it didnt work when I plugged it in. Most batteries have a little juice in them before you need to fully charge. This new one had NONE! I put it in my phone yesterday and it just kept blinking away on the menu bar. I didnt have time to allow it to sit so used my old battery last night. This morning I attempted to charge my new battery again and IT WORKED!!!.....After about waiting for 5 min. When my phone turned on it showed that the charging status was at 0%. That was about 0545 am and now it is at 8% at 0603 am.

I am not sure how long you all are waiting, but maybe give it 5-10 min. Im guessing that there wasnt enough juice to even power the phone on when initially plugged in. I hope this helps. Try this first before going out to buy another battery.

Also, when I talked to the guy at the Phone store, Huawei Ascend phones can only use Huawei batteries. Whether its true or not I am not sure of, but when I called around (to about 20 places) none of them carried 3.7V 1500mAH (5.6Wh) Li-Polymer batteries that would be compatible with the Ascend.

Hope this helps!

Noticed this: BOTH times this has happened to my son, it occurred AFTER he let the battery drop down to zip. The phone was completely dead. After charging for just a little while, he'd get the flashing lights and nothing on this page helped UNTIL he let it charge overnight, and then ... it just powered on. Recommendation: NEVER LET THIS CELL PHONE GO COMPLETELY DEAD. Ever. Reminds of some of the first video cams that came out; if you let them go 100% dead, you could actually just lose the battery completely. Maybe these batteries are like that cause I've just googgled this prob and found HUNDREDS of people asking the same question -at one site alone there were nearly 1000 versions of this same question! To me? This means they started ya'll with el cheapo batteries AND a badly made low-end cell droid. Worth half of what they sell it for instantly after purchase, and probably less if you tried to hock it! ANYTHING that is like that? Is trash. Take it back, if you can, and pay $40 more and get a MUCH better phone! Think this Ascend is an overpriced POS. Just the opinon of an old lady but ... money is tight! Saving $40 vs losing that call that would've landed you a great job? I'd be losing that cell ASAP!

must have been a bad phone when you bought it, but every ascend is different tho. when i caliberate my battery i charge to 100 than discharge all the way to dead and have not in counter this before.

Battery on this phone is actually pretty good for a smartphone. Its really recommended to let it drain all the way down once a month or so, then let it charge all the way. You don't let it die all the way down, charge it for five minutes, then troll a forum because it doesn't work right away. If you think the ascend is overpriced, you must have very unrealistic expectations of what you can get for $100 or less.

Just signed up cause I had the same problem but found the solution elsewhere, so I figured I would share... This is what worked for me after having only the buttons flash and no power up or charge... Take out the battery, with the battery removed plug in your charger. The phone will power up, after you here the welcome note, replace your battery and leave your phone alone until it fully charges. Took me a couple trys before it started actually charging but it worked. Hope this helps, Im glad I didnt have to bother with taking it in

That's possibly due to a bad connection (The Battery, not the USB) or a bad battery, hard to tell which one it is I think.

Glad you shared, welcome to AndroidForums!

Mine was fully charged I never let it get completely discharged. I've tried every way recommended and taking out the sd card worked..for all of 10 seconds! I'm really disappointed because I really liked this phone but I guess it was too CHEAP to be true! Anyway my point is, yep I concur with what she said.

Thank you so much for this information. It worked like a charm & you made my 2 boys very happy. Their phone is actually charging as I type. Crazy the "so called professionals", couldn't or wouldnt share this with me. They told us the battery was completely depleated and since the phone is no longer made, I'd have to replace the phone all together. I hope you know that you rock! Lol I'm quoting my 4 yr old there. He plays mindcraft on an old phone of mine & couldnt afford to buy a new one! Take care
