    8130 and USB Charging

    Advertisement



    I had been using my USB cable to charge my new 8130 pearl. I formatted today and got everything re-installed, now I get a screen saying USB not enough power to charge or something. Can somebody help me use this USB cable as a charger again?

    This is normal if your not using a USB2 port, if your computer is old you maybe have a USB port, but chances are its USB1.

    USB2 gives more power / speed than USB1.

    Are you using a laptop and if so is it on battery power or AC power? If on battery the PC may downgrade the USB port power to conserve its own battery power.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~what os version are you using? I had the same thing happen when the laptop was on battery, which it did not do before. I am using alltel's latest build for the 8130.

    What version of Desktop Manager (DM) are you using? This also happened to me using an older DM Version. What I did to solve this problem was I downloaded the latest DM version (Ver 4.3), connected the BB up, and the problem was solved.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i don't think it makes a difference. I get the same error when on laptop battery and I'm using 4.3 also. It has to do with os version or usb power.
