    Hi there,

    Ive just recieved the following battery that i was going to use as a spare.

    Genuine HTC BA S410 Battery for HTC Desire and Google: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    However, after putting it in the phone and sticking it on charge, the phone won't turn on. Instead the orange led and then the green led flash at the top about every 5 seconds. After googling the problem haven't found any description of the odd flashing lights.

    The phone is fine with the old battery, but still wont turn on with the new one.

    Anybody have any ideas? Cheers

    a bit of googling unearthed this . May be a temperature related issue (or temperature sensor) or a bent battery prong

    Thanks for the reply.

    What I dont really understand how it could be a temperature problem. Like i say, i can easily take the new battery out, put the old one in and it works straight away. With the new battery it just fails to turn on, but the lights continue indefinately, if the phone was overheating, i pressume it would have to be turned on first to start overheating. It wouldnt raise the temperature rediculous amounts straight away would it?

    No i wouldn't. Temperature sensor could be screwy, but i'd discount that cos the other battery is ok. So I would check the contacts on the new battery are touching ok.
