Hi all,

Hi hoping someone could help, a guy at work has handed me his Defy as its not charging. Plugged it in and after the M splash screen it goes to the battery charging screen. Only problem is that just shows a massive question mark ? Anyone know what that means please? My ony thought is its not a a genuine battery so the phone is having diffaculty reading the charge level or something ?

I can think of three reasons why the battery why the battery wont charge:
  1. You are not using the original charger
  2. You don't have the right battery
  3. The battery is defect
It is easy to test point one: Just plug your phone in an USB-port of a running PC.

Otherwise you could buy an original battery, or if you know someone else with a defy, swap batteries and test...

It just happened to me two days ago. A battery pull and put back solved it. There must be something with the connections. Got me. Only happened that one time.

I have one charger that charge some android phones ( old xperia and samsung) but doesn't charge my defy or a newer samsung.
Anyway, I use an original samsung charger (don't buy those cheap $1 ones) and it can charge any phone.
It's strange because the voltage written written on both is the same and so is the mini usb plug (the amps are higher on the original though).
