Droid will not charge. The LED light on the side of the MircoUSB blinks fast and constantly. My other Droid charges just fine with the same charger.
I recommend doing this by phone if necessary as opposed to doing it in the Verizon Store. Customer Service people on the phone won't make you jump through hoops to get your replacement.
you said the battery will charge in other droids, but will that 'bad' droid charge with a different battery?
i have an issues similar to yours. if my droids battery dies completely, the ONLY way i can charge it is if i use a oem motorola wall charger, but the trick is, i gotta plug the micro usb cable in half way. just enough for it to hold but not fall out or snap in all the way. the light next to the port should turn on and stay on. leave it like this for ~1 hour. then push the plug in the rest of the way and let it charge up fully
at least thats what i have to do
Yeah, I tried that a bit ago and no joy. It's a used Droid and I would like to fix it myself. I was just wondering if that blinking LED was an indicator for something, like a particular problem. I was going to try and solder on a different charging port but I would like to know what else it could be before I did that. I tried 3 different known working batteries in that Droid that doesn't charge.
Plugging it in half way made the light go solid for about a second. Now it's blinking slower. I guess that means something is up with the port itself. Another thing I should mention, the charging indicator on the Android OS is blinking too at the same speed of the LED. It was blinking faster before I tried plugging it in just half way.
OR, charge the battery in another phone, put it back in the bad phone and see if it charges while the phone is on
Called several times the Verizon tech support, unfortunately I don't have that much time to troubleshoot, and the techs who were supposed to call me on another line, did not call back.
I am heading to the store to see what my options are. Such a great phone, very poor support so far.
