As I was driving along a message flashed up saying something along the lines of 'Either the battery or the charger is invalid/faulty, charging disabled' and then as the message said, it stopped charging. The car charger itself has stopped working so that must be the cause of the problem (note to self - don't buy cheap shjt from Ebay).
Anyway I switched the Streak off to save power (was then at 54% charge) and when I came to switch it back on again a bit later it just showed a 0% sign with an exlamation mark.
Now I cannot switch it on at all, not even getting the 0% thing any more - either when plugged into mains or a PC. If I connect it to a PC, I can however boot into fastboot mode, just not into recovery nor normal boot.
So has my battery been fried? Can you start the Streak without a battery? Or is there some something else stopping me starting my Streak. Is there some sort of protective circuitry that has been tripped? Like I said it was at 54% when it was switched off, so I was surprised that it said 0% when I tried to switch it on.
I will give obviously give Dell a call, just wondered if there was anything I could try first?
The only other thread about a similar issue that I could find was this:
