    Blackberry Won't Charge Past 85%

    Advertisement



    I've got a 7290 and I have no clue what happened to it. I didn't drop it anywhere or anything but whenever I charge the battery it will not go up past 85%. I've wiped the handheld, tried three different batteries. Nothing seems to be working.....

    Any suggestions?

    well if you tested with three batteries, a battery problem is discarted.

    try re-installing your SO, if doesn't work, could be a something wrong with 7290 hardware.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if all three batteries are older batteries then they are operating typically. I had the same issue with a digicam battery and complained to Olympus who told me that their battery chargers show fully charged at 80% because over time batteries lose their capacity.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I think he meant OS, or operating system.

    Are you using a blackberry specific charger?

    Could be a defective wall charger. Have you tried another one?

    I had problems with the chargers. Seems like I am always buying a new car charger every 3 months. I charge my phone on that more than on the usb. The metal tips are not that strong and it takes nothing to bend them just enough so the phone won't charge properly.

    I would suggest buying a new charger.

    I will also let you know, you should ask if your phone charger is US compliant. I know you can blow up appliances that are not US specfic by taking them over seas and plugging them into the wall. has somethign to do with our electric currents are not compliant with european set up. Don't know the techie stuff on it but trust me on screwing things up for you

    @jbanger: take care, BB cannot charge via (some model) wall-charger compatible with PPC or phone (ex: Motorola V3i)

    ^ thanks for the advice guys, just got back from the shop and it turns out there was a problem with the phone and not the charger - on the side where the jack plugs into the phone you can see 5 pieces of wire - mine only had 4! Wierd how the USB charging still worked?
    Now I have a new phone and have to transfer everything over again!
