N70 Charging Problem

hello all,

I have just received my third N70 from Vodafone!

I have a problem with recharging the battery.

Say the battery level bar is at 1 bar (out of five). I put the charger in, the "charging" message comes up and the bars start increase to indicate it is charging, however after a good period of charging (i.e 2 hours) i take the charger out and the battery level is at the same level as when i put the charger in! (i.e 1 bar)

It is not a falut with the battery as i have a spare and swapped them over and it happened to the other battery as well.

Finally if the battery is completely empty and the phone is off, when i put the charger in nopthing happens what so ever - it doesn't even register that there is a charger.

I am at a loss - shall i ask for my fourth N70!?

Wirelessly posted (NokiaN-GageQD/1.0 SymbianOS/6.1 Series60/1.2 Profile/MIDP-1.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.0)

Which charger are you using? The new version or the adaptor for the old version.

fix your baterry problem

Hi all,
I just have the same problem with charging, after 15min of trouble shooting, i figure out that the charger is bad. I buy an after market charger, with output 5VDC, 1000mA, cut out the connector and replace with the one Nokia one, make sure the polarity is + (positive) inside, -(negative) outside. Plug in and charge your phone, it work like a charm now. I know the charger come with the phone is suck, so better replace your. Hope this will help.

try to drain out your battery by let it run all the way down, dont charge your fone till it dead, then give it a complete charge for 8 hours, this will help.
