    Droid won't charge or load HELP!!!

    I have the first Droid phone. My battery went dead last night. I tried to use the wall charger and got nothing. It is currently plugged into my computer and when I hit the power button it says:

    Bootloader
    2C.7C
    Battery Low
    Cannot Program

    It has been sitting on the charger for an hour. I took the battery out, left it out for a few minutes and put it back in and nothing is happening. It hasn't gotten wet or anything like that, the battery just went dead. What do I do??

    Are you using the wall charger that came with your Droid or a replacement? You really need to plug it into the wall and let it sit for 2-3 hours. It will charge better than with your computer. The key though is to let it sit while charging and do nothing with it. I think after you charge it via the wall for 2-3 hours you will see that it will start working again.

    Put it on the wall charger and walk away from it for 4 hours.

    Do a battery pull, let it sit for thirty seconds, then plug it back into a wall charger or car charger rated at at least 700mAh. Now let it sit for at LEAST an hour, preferably two to three, before doing ANYTHING to it. See if that helps. If not, you may need a new battery. You can get a generic on eBay or Amazon for around $10 delivered, even less sometimes, and I've seen reports of two batteries and an external charger delivered for around $15.

    You probably ran the battery down really low, and kept trying to boot the phone. Each time you try to start the phone, you drain the battery a bit more. Lithium Ion batteries dont like being dained completely, which is why the phone shuts itself off at a low battery.

    Give it awhile on the wall charger, and you'll be fine.

    However, if something happened to the phone and you can't boot once you've charged the battery (and if you have a friend with a Droid 1/2/X you can borrow a pre-charged battery to test) you may need to do some work on it. We'll happily help if this is the case.

    Out of curiosity, what kind of problems have you had?

    Cool Very Very Stupid Droid NEWB.

    I have a similar issue... My battery died while flashing a new rom. The battery was low when I was attempting to do this but I assumed it would be fine if I left it on the charger as I flashed? I was wrong. It seems that the phone doesnt charge when you are in the recovery menu. So now my phone just boots to the "M" when I plug the charger in and doesnt seem to be charging. So my question is, If this Droid 2 needs to be booted up or whatever to charge then my only option is to buy another battery and sbf it from there right ? Or maybe even use my old MyTouch battery and hook some wires from the according posts to the droid's according post's ?

    How long have you left it on the charger since the failed flash?
