Phone only charges when turned off...

13 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello,

I have a problem with my S120.

Which is the fact that it won't charge when the phone is turned on and thus only charges when I turn it off.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I had to revert back to my IPhone 3GS which I hate, so please help me :)

Pull battery and connect cable. Then try to boot. If your phone does not start the problem in the cable.

P.S. Translated with Google Translate =)

So if the battery is not the problem...that leaves us with

- Problem within software

- Problem with battery connector

- Problem with charger/cable

What kind of cable should be used? Anything special?

- Problem within software

there should be no problem with stock.

I think it's an absolutely a controller-dependent fault, so ask your local service.

Nothing special, just the usual microusb (I think). I've had a few problems with longer cables, but noelrmally they work
