Exclamation [Q] 100% Drained Lumia 900 Battery Will Not ReCharge

Yesterday I let my Lumia battery drain 100%, disregarding the warning that it was critically low. Eventually the screen no longer accepted touch gestures and it shutdown.

I plugged it into the wall charger and it now continuously boots, keys light up, white screen comes on and the charging battery (red) is displayed. A couple of minutes later it goes black, the Nokia logo comes up, then it sits on the At&t splash screen for 5 minutes and reboots. It has been doing this non-stop all night.

I have tried different chargers and even connected to my laptop. no luck.

I noticed on Nokia's site, people have been having this problem too, even with the 800. There is a few suggestions, but no solution.

Has anyone let their phone battery drain 100% and got it to charge back up?
Anyone having this same problem?

I let my drain completely the other day and it charged back up just fine. Make sure you're using the supplied wall charger - it's actually rated at a higher amperage than most wall charges, 750 mA vs. 500 mA for most chargers.

have you just let it sit for awhile...I mean more than 45 seconds? You drained the battery. You plugged it in. The default action on Windows Phone is to start when plugged into a power source. Obviously its not charged enough to sustain that action. Let it go at least 20 minutes....if not more. Some people here have mentioned it took 2 hrs for it successfully complete that cycle. And by all means, use the supplied charger, or, at least one that pumps out an equiv charge. Alot of those Amazon $1.99 specials, simply do not.
Regards

My Nokia Round wall plug actually was not working when I first got it, so I've been using my Blackberry and other usb's to charge, including just a usb to my Dell XPS 15 laptop.
Nokia is 5v 1A
Blackberry is 5v 700mA
Jawbone is 5v 550mA
Motorola Car Charger is 5v 950mA (I spend an hour in my car and same looping)

I have a replacement device coming either today or tomorrow because of the charger problem. Hopefully the new one will be able to charge this one so I can get my media off it.

Yes, it has happened before (there is a thread here) and I did witness my co-worker's phone went through the same thing. Unfortunately, for both cases, the only solution is get a replacement phone. In my co-worker's case, he used the Nokia charger charged it for many many hours to no avail.

So the bottom line is NEVER let your battery drain completely. You may ended up with a dead phone.

Default Same Issue

My phone has the same issue. It can literally cycle from glow screen to battery icon screen to reboot for more than an hour. It happens with the supplied charger as well as my Samsung Focus charger. I find that I can hold the power button down after it has charged for a few minutes and it breaks the cycle and reboots properly.

Well I got my replacement Lumia 900 today. The wall charger is recognized by my old Lumia, however it is still doing the boot up loop and it hangs on the At&t screen when plugged in.
I will let it go for a few hours and see if anything happens. If nothing, I will try to do a hard reset and wipe all my data and see.

I'm not sure that the labeling on the Nokia charger is accurate. I'm sure it is with regards to testing, but in practice my 900 will not charge at a rate higher than 650ma when plugged into that charger, however when plugged into my 2A touchpad charger it charges at rates of 850-900ma. Perhaps get yourself an aftermarket iPad charger, I think those have pretty high amperage and see what you get then.

You have hte keystroke combo for reset??? Should be done from a power off postion. Hopefully the charge is not too low to do this...
