[Q] Help: Phone Charges Only if Switched Off
I read in one of the discussions see that one problem identified in WP7 install on HD2 is no charging when the device is off. It is referenced as a maglard issue.
However, I am facing a completely contrasting problem. I am using an extended HTC battery and since the time I have installed WP7, the device does not charge while it is switched on. I see the charging icon blinking when the phone is kept on charge, but even after hours the battery status does not change. I unplug the charger and immediately the battery warning pops up.
However, when I switch off the phone and then keep it on charge, the battery does get charged up to 25% (guesstimate by seeing the battery icon after I switch on the mobile) and the orange led light is on. The led light turns off after 15-20 minutes and the mobile does not charge any further. Also, after this, when I try to switch on the handset by pressing the power key, nothing happens. I have to take battery out, reinsert it and then switch the device on.
It is making WP7 a very unpleasant experience for me so far. I have not yet activated the Live services on the WP7 install but I do not think this could be a reason for the charging issues.
Is this a peculiar problem or is anyone else facing this issue? Can anyone tell me why this is happening? Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
