    USB 2.0 connection

    Advertisement



    I plugged my phone into a 2.0 USB connection without the driver downloaded and it fried my phone. I still worked until the battery went dead but it won't charge through the USB connection anymore. I'm not sure if it was just the computer I was using or not....

    Have you tried turning on your PC and charging it or have you tried with wall connection?

    I've tried two other PCs and a PS3. I will try the wall charger and post the results. If that doesn't work, it's time for a new berry...

    You might try a soft reset as well.

    When I plugged in the wall charger, it powered on long enough for the phone to boot up but there was no lightning bolt. So that doesn't work either. I'm thinking about fashioning a device to replicate a cradle as soon as I find out the voltage. If it works, then I'll just order a cradle (fingers crossed).

    Is there a chance that the battery was just very dead? Have you tried plugging it into the wall and leave it there for 20-30 minutes? Sometimes they won't turn on unless there is sufficient charge.

    Good luck, I know how frustrating it can be.

    I will leave it plugged in but I pulled the trigger on a cradle with a compartment for charging the battery separately from the phone. Hopefully, that will work because I hate this Motorola I'm using....
