Default Ideos won't power on - red light when charging... HELP!!

Hi there,

I have plugged a somewhat dubious car charger into my Ideos this morning when it was dead flat. It said it was charging and even powered up, but when I tried to turn it on next time I have nothing.

When I got home I plugged it into a wall charger and all I am getting is a red light - not the orange charging light. Also I have no 'charging' screen and cannot power on.

I am guessing I may have killed the battery at the least so I have ordered a new one.
Can anybody help me?

Cheers,
Bener.

My husband is having exactly the same problem but he has only used the supplied charger. I have the same phone with no problems..
Can't do anything to reboot it.
Has anyone found the answer as we are thinking it is the battery ?

Thanks for any help.

Default Same problem

I've just got the same phone (Ideos U8150) about two weeks ago. The battery started getting really poor the last couple of days, literally lasting a couple of hours and after it dying at lunchtime today, I can't even get it to power up now. When I plug it in, I get a red led light in the top right corner. This light comes on when the phone's plugged in with or without the battery inserted. It's the same light whether I have the phone plugged into my laptop or the a/c adaptor. Any ideas of what's wrong and how to get my phone working?

Thanks.

Having the same problem.First started off that the battery level would jump all over place, then would take many hours to charge and now phone will not boot up consistently even when the battery is removed and the power is connected.
When is does intermittently boot up and plugged in with the battery it does not seem to charge.
I have bought a new battery from ebay to see if the problem is the battery or the phone. Waiting for it to arrive.
Any other ideas?

Hey there,

is there any solution for this problem? I have some more details

- there is a dark red light, but the phone is not charging, I am not able to turn on the phone
- massaging the power-button without any battery inserted and a USB-AC-cable plugged in, I am able to start the phone and use it.
- now, after starting the phone, I inserted the battery and the red light turned orange, it is charging pretty fast (too fast, in my opinion).

Any ideas? Solutions?
Regards,
Dominik

btw: I am trying to follow these suggestions now:
T-Mobile Support Community: Comet not turning on, steady red light

It is charging and hopefully afterwards it is working again (with battery!).

I was able to charge it with a usb cable connected to my computer. Some chargers won΄t work on this phone when battery is critically low.

Default Another with Same problem

Phone was off, but had red light on constant.

I turned it on, put the charger on. It's charging. 48% but the red light is still on constant. Never had this happen before.

Ideas?

This info from the Users Guide may help:
Status Indicator
The color of the status indicator tells the battery status of your mobile phone.
2.2.4 Important Information About the Battery
• If the battery has not been used for a long period of time, you may not be able to power on your mobile phone immediately after you begin charging the battery. Allow the battery to charge for a few minutes with the phone powered off before attempting to power on the phone.
• The battery will not hold a charge for the way it did when it was new. When the battery life becomes noticeably shorter than usual after being charged properly, replace the battery with a new one of the same type.
• Using data services increases demand on the battery and will reduce the length of time it can hold a charge.
• The time required to charge the battery depends on the ambient temperature and the age of the battery.
Status indicatorGreen: Fully charged (when connected to charger).Orange: Charging in progress (when connected to charger).Red: Battery low.
7
• When the battery is low on power, the phone plays an alert and displays a prompt. When battery power is almost exhausted, your phone will power off automatically.
2.2.5 Battery Saving Tips
The longevity of battery power depends on the network that you connect to, and how you use your
mobile phone.
Try the following to conserve battery power:
• When your mobile phone is not in use, switch off the screen.
• Reset the time it takes for your screen light to switch off when you leave your phone idle.
• Lower the screen brightness.
• Use the AC adapter to plug your phone into an external power source whenever possible.
• Turn Bluetooth off when you are not using it. Only make your phone visible to other Bluetooth devices when you need to establish a Bluetooth connection.
• Switch off Wi-Fi when you are not using it.
• Turn off your phone connection to GPS satellites when you are not using it.
• Lower the volume.
• Close power-draining programs, when you do not need them.
• Turn off the data service.

Lithium batteries should not be allowed to go completely flat!
If you allow this to happen - DON'T POWER ON THE PHONE WHEN YOU FIRST START CHARGING! - wait until the battery has been on charge at least a half hour. Cheers Neil.

The red light means it is charging but is less than 10% but if its still flashing it isn't charging

Make sure your Micro USB connector is plugged in the RIGHT way.
It sounds as though you have bad connections as Low Battery light will not continue to indicate when the charger is working correctly.
It shows ORANGE steady - and when the battery level comes up to about 92% charge - the light changes to GREEN steady.
Make sure that the SIM card is inserted fully and that the MicroSD card is fully home. Cheers Neil.

If you use this Hash Code - you can get info about the Health of your battery.
