[Q] USB Charging problem. PLEASE HELP!!
The USB charger does
not seem to power the device
enough to get it to power on. It needs a battery
that has been charged up.
When I ordered a new battery, the phone
powered right up! But, as I was
trying to troubleshoot the problem, the battery
eventually drained to 0.
The problem occurred after I replaced the front
glass. I upgraded to 4.3
after I ordered a new battery after draining the
original one. I was hoping that a fresh OS install
might help the problem,
but it did not. The phone ran the same with 4.2
as with 4.3. I handled the
motherboard with great care when doing the
repair, and the phone worked perfectly before
that. (I have done many successful phone
repairs). I suppose it's possible that the
motherboard was damaged somehow, but it has no
sign of damage and the only
problem is the battery not charging. charging
sign- It did show when the battery was charged.
Now that the battery has drained down,I will
sometimes get an orange light when plugging in
the USB charger.
The battery has drained to the point that the
charging animation indicator on the screen no
longer appears. The battery has been drained to
the point where it does not have enough
power to boot the phone..
