    My Eris has been really funky as of late.

    I have a standard HTC Eris travel AC charge that I bought. Worked awesome. Charged Phone nice and fast. When I would plug it in. The battery widget would show a little plug.

    Now when I attempt to plug the phone in. It thinks its charging by usb. Taking the phone off charge and replugging it in. It tells me its now charging by ac. If i touch the phone a tiny bit it will stop charging. Touch the wire and it begins to charge again. Only as usb. When its clearly plugged into the ac charger.

    If i plug the phone into my car charger it say ac.

    I just dont get it.

    Now when i left work. I attempted to tether the phone via pdanet. Now the phone wolnt go into usb debugging. Phone charges but computer wolnt recognize it.


    Ive tried the usual. Power cycling both computer and phone. Tried restarting both computer and phone. As well as changed cords and chargers. All do the same thing.

    I fear maybe some of the contacts are bad on the phone.

    Anyone else have this happen.

    i cant answer your question, but i do have one?

    does your trackball have issues?

    i have observed from reading a lot of posts that a bad usb port and trackball errors go together. sounds like a bad contact to me.

    Sounds like a bad connection to me. I would recommend:
    1. Turn your phone off and remove the battery (just to be safe)
    2. wet a q-tip in rubbing alchohol and try to clean the contacts
    3. after it dries completely put your battery back in and power up your phone.
