    I'm sure there are over a thousand topics on this....but when I first got my Desire (3-4 weeks ago), despite poor battery life, it would alway at least receive full charge by indication of the green LED, via the wall charger.

    I've noticed in the last week or so, that even after 8-10 hours on the wall charger, the LED stays amber....never goes green, and never receives a full charge (settings, about phone, battery).

    Also, while on the wall charger, it would suddenly stop charging and "USB Debugging" would start flashing at the top. I disabled that in the mean time.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much in advance

    Turn it off and charge. Does it go green that way?

    Maybe a duff charger or usb lead/connector. Is it the supplied HTC one? Is the phone showing AC charging? What happens if you try a different charger or charge it from your PC?

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Rooting won't make any difference to this. My best guess, but it's only a guess, is that the battery is completely shot - quite possible in an old phone - in which case a replacement battery will fix it.

    We also have a section specifically for your device, HTC Incredible S - Android Forums, so you may be able to get advice there.

    Good luck :)

    Do you have access to another phone of the same type? Could you try the battery from that phone? If it works ok you could then buy a new battery.

    This is the HTC desire forum. You will get much better advice on your phone if you follow Hadron's link to the Incredible S forum in his earlier post.

    Yes, you would get better device-specific advice in our Incredible S section (link in my first post).

    I cannot guarantee it isn't some other hardware problem, but a battery would be cheaper than any hardware repair. However, I doubt it's the contact (which I guess is what you mean by the jack) - a bad contact could stop it charging at all, but I can't see why it would stop it at 60%. You should be able to rule out software by doing a full factory reset - but as that erases all of your data, you should back anything important up first.

    As for whether it's real or not, the Incredible S section would be a better place to ask for advice. They'll also be more likely to know whether a white version was officially released (may be different in different countries). Posting full software information may help - baseband version is often a good one, as that's more rarely faked than most stuff. Information on the bootloader screen might also help: reboot while pressing the "volume down" key and see what it says there (should be a white screen with some little androids at the bottom, some information at the top, and a short menu of options).

    As for whether it's new or refurb, I'm not sure. That phone hasn't been manufactured for a while, but how you would tell whether it's just been kept in storage or been used and refurbished (including replacing the case and resetting the phone) I don't know.
