    Droid line of phones act weird on charger

    Ive been meaning to ask you guys about this for quite some time...

    Sorry if this is old news too...why do these devices act differently when on the charger? I've owned 5 D1's and 1 D2. Every single one of them acts strange when charging. By strange, I mean the touch screen response goes haywire. The device seems to treat scrolling (swiping of the screen) like a one touch click. If I scroll through a webpage, it'll click on something on the page instead...such as a link. This gets VERY VERY annoying very quickly. Now, this issue is much MUCH more prevalent when the device is on the home dock, but its still noticeable on a standard charger nonetheless. On top of the myriad of devices I've owned, I also own 3 home chargers, one car charger, and only one home dock. All of these are VZW branded too. The issue has happened on every device I've owned using every charger I own. That said, it seems virtually impossible that this issue is NOT a global issue/glitch that affects all or most Droid branded moto phones...hence the thread title. Now before you refute my claims, please go spend at least 5 minutes with your D1 or D2 while its on the charger. And if you own a home dock, use that.

    Am I wrong here? Is this a known issue? Is it a moto issue, android issue? I'd love to figure out what's going on here. All input is appreciated. Thanks.

    I've noticed that on my D2 a well. Doesn't matter what charger it just seems to go haywire sometimes. And then others it seems fine. Mine likes to zoom the page when I'm trying to scroll. Very annoying

    Yeah, I had this when I got my D2, it was really annoying!

    I think someone said something about it being a grounding issue. And, indeed, when I plugged the charger into either a grounded power strip or into my USB hub (which draws power from that grounded power strip), it is fine.

    I haven't had this issue in ages now. I'm not sure if that's because of the current power plug set-up (it's not grounded though....), because I'm running a custom ROM (Liberty!), or because it's in the multimedia dock (I can't remember if I ever had this issue while it was docked or not, although I think I did... just not sure).

    Anyway, hope you can find some way of fixing it, because I know that when it was happening to me, it made the phone literally unusable. :/

    For me it does depend on the charger.
    Using my USB cables, the car charger, and the charger at my GF's house (also USB but connected to the wall) everything is fine, but when using the regular wall charger, the screen registers differently.

    I had the same issue with my D1. It turned out to be the charger passing the 60Hz noise to the phone. The original charger worked fine, but I wanted a longer cord so I bought a new charger and had the problem you are describing. I then tried several other brands, and found that the I-go charger (Radio Shack) worked fine.

    Well its good to know I'm not the only one with the issue. But its ridiculous that this has happened to me on all 6 devices on several different chargers.

    My D2 does this as well, very annoying. Seems to happen less with the usb-wall charger adapter that came with the phone, and more with the wall charger that I had from my old blackberry. Either way it's intermittent...My solution has been to just let it be while it's charging.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I hate it when I'm trying to set my alarm before bed or on the occasion I charge during the day. I guess the real solution is to stay away from certain brand chargers?
