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 :)

Stock rom (from Acer) and Gingerounay both have the same result, only charging when turned off.

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
