Motorola Droid :: Charging - Question Mark On Battery Icon

Mar 1, 2010

I just bought the Droid today and am having problems with the charger/battery? I used it all today after purchasing it until the battery ran down. The entire time the battery icon had a question mark instead of the actual status (which I thought was odd at the time). I plugged in my Droid after it died and it turned on, but it doesn't seem to recognize the charger.

I've had it charging for the past few hours, but I still cannot unplug it without it immediately turning off and the battery level is stuck at 5% (the battery and question mark is still in the corner too). For clarification, when its plugged in to the charger, the phone will turn on and function. As soon as I unplug it, the phone turns off.

Android :: Battery Indicator Showed Question Mark / Not Charging

Aug 9, 2010

I dunked my Moto Droid as I fell into a pool this weekend. I probably tried to boot it too soon after that happened, but now a few days later it is operational. Theres a few flecks in the screen display but otherwise I cannot notice any serious deficiencies in the interface. The one major problem I am having however is with the battery. Obviously, it got wet as well, and when the phone did become operational again, it indicated about 50% charge and went down from there as I used it. After it powered down though, when I plugged it in to charge the battery indicator showed a question mark and I can no longer charge it. The Droid will operate when plugged into a wall outlet only (not my computer). Is it possible that replacing the battery is the only necessary fix?

Motorola CLIQ :: Battery Not Charging - Icon Showing A ? Symbol

Mar 2, 2010

I guess I have my first major problem with the phone that I can't seem to figure out. As of last night, the battery icon on the top right of the screen has been showing a "?" symbol instead of the usual colored meter.

I tried charging it and the symbol doesn't change it either. Also, it does not seem to charge. I tried turning my phone on and off...and it doesn't do anything.

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Charging Not Right

Sep 27, 2010

I have a Motorola Droid, the original.I got this phone back in May or June, my battery life has always been normal, i.e. 12+ hours on normal use throughout the day.I have a non-OEM charger, I have since I got the phone, and it has never affected the phone or the battery life. Recently in the past few weeks I've noticed that my phone's battery has been draining much more frequently, i'm now getting 8+ hours on normal use. Also I have noticed when I plug my phone in to the charger it says it's charging, but when I wake up it's only at 50-60% and I have to unplug it and plug it back in for it to go to full 100%. I've been trying to research why it is doing this, but i'm coming up with no answers.

Motorola Droid X :: Charging Battery Partially - Is This Okay?

Jul 26, 2010

Is it okay to partially charge the battery (i.e. to not completely charge to full)? I ask because I have the car dock which includes a power connection. Now, whenever I dock my phone, it'll get charged, but I'm hardly ever in my car long enough for the phone to get fully charged, so I end up taking the phone off the dock before a full charge. Is this okay for the battery?

Motorola Droid :: Battery Trick - Complete Drainage And Charging

Nov 20, 2009

There seems to be lots of discussions on Battery life, so I did a test myself. I was getting about the same battery life as everybody else, about 6-7 hours with moderate usage. Which is what all the beta testers were getting pre release. I thought I would give something a try. First of all, when I picked up the phone it was about 75% charged. I charged it to 100%, and let it go down to about 30% that first day and then charged it. I followed this everyday for the first week, and was still getting the same battery life out of it. I never allowed the device to completely drain and shut off. Well I gave that a shot, and what did I find, My battery is lasting much longer, like doubled. So give this a try. I let the phone die, completely die so it shuts off. Then charge it 100% overnight. Worked for me, don't know if it will work for you, but give it a shot.

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Stops Charging When USB Service Dies

Jul 27, 2010

I'm the author of SystemPanel, which includes task management (killing) features. I've recently noticed a problem with my Droid X where it suddenly will stop accepting a charge. For example, the screenshot below shows that the phone plugged in overnight, yet battery continues to drain: With a bit of testing, it appears that killing the app "usb" results in this behavior occurring. Once it has been killed, the phone will never accept a charge until it the phone is rebooted.

I would greatly appreciate if a fellow Droid X owner could verify this for me. To do this, use SystemPanel (Lite version will work fine, as will ANY task killer, or the OS' own task killer) to terminate the "usb" program. The full name of the process is "com.motorola.usb". Any task manager should also reproduce the behavior if you perform a "end all" or "kill all" operation. Then unplug the device from USB/AC power (if it was plugged in) and then reconnect it. You should see no indication of a USB connection and/or charging if your device suffers the same problem. The issue can then be corrected by rebooting the phone. Here is the process as shown by SystemPanel: It appears that Motorola has incorrectly allowed this process to be user-killable and/or has failed to automatically restart it in the event that it terminates or otherwise fails. Would greatly appreciate feedback on this problem, if this is not unique to my device, I'll be modifying SytemPanel immediately to avoid ever killing this process.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Charging Semi Frequently And Shutting It Off At Night?

Nov 30, 2009

I was wondering what kind of knowledge you guys have about the LI-ION batteries in this badboy. I see a lot of conflicting things online, and from what I gather...you shouldn't be charging overnight, and you shouldn't frequently do full cycle discharge. So, what is the best practice? Charging semi frequently and shutting it off at night? I dislike this because I use the phone as an alarm, and don't want to wake up with the battery starting at 90 for the day.

Also, if you're not supposed to charge overnight (which i've done with many other phones and they were fine), then if I do get the media dock...it would charge overnight every night as my alarm clock.... isn't that bad for the battery? I'm just concerned about ruining my battery, what have you guys heard, and what effects have you seen?

I loaded bb v1.0 with the 1.0 ghz kernel pete has on my friends droid. It is the same setup on mine. His battery was dead within 3 hourss. I noticed his sync icon is in the notifcation panel however it is not spinning. I think the calender is trying to sync and there fore is draining the battery. I deselected the auto sync option but the sync icon is still in the notification panel. Any suggestions what is going on or how to remove the sync icon. I rebooted and killed apps via task manager with negatives results.

Motorola Droid X :: WiFi Not Turned Off And Battery Icon Force Closes

Oct 4, 2010

I just picked up the Droid X yesterday and so far love the phone. I had the Incredible a few months ago but had to return it due to some camera hardware issues. Anyways, my phone came with Android 2.1. I upgraded to 2.2 after charging my phone. Now:

1) Whenever I turn off WiFi, within 1 hr my phone will keep telling me it detects WiFi networks, I'll go back in control panel and sure enough WiFi has some how turned itself back on.
2)My battery usage icon, when I click on the battery to get a breakdown of what's using power it 'force closes' every time.

Motorola Milestone :: Overnight Charging Battery Drain

Aug 26, 2010

Motorola Milestone user here. I posted this yesterday in the appropriate section, but I figured this issue might apply to other phones as well. Sorry for the lenght but I thought I'd cover all bases.Anyway here's what happens when I charge my phone overnight. Let's say my battery is at 80%:

1. Turn off Wifi

2. All tasks killed except for Alarm Clock. Sometimes I run the Music Player but it doesn't make a difference with the battery drain issue whether I use it or not.

3. Background data is not enabled

4. The "Stay Awake" (Screen will never sleep while charging) option in the "Applications" menu is NOT CHECKED

5. Auto-brightness is not selected, and brightness is set at the lowest level.

6. Data Roaming (connect to data services when roaming) is not selected

7. Bluetooth not on

8. Charge the phone - I see the animated lightning bolt icon

9. Press the "sleep" button for the screen, or, allow it to naturally go dark after 30s

General :: Droid 2 Global - Stuck At Battery Low / Cannot Program (Not Charging)

Mar 8, 2013

I am having issues with my droid 2 global, bootloader is stuck at "MEM_MAP blank" which i can fix easily, but a really irritating issue is happening...

I am stuck at "Battery Low, Cannot Program". Now dont tell me that i need to charge it! ive had it plugged in for hours. usually it takes 1 hour to get 0% to 100% battery. i was inatlling the cyanogen mod and i did exactly what it said, but it said "Pull out the battery and press "X" and power back" or something like that. so i just got mad and left the device alone, then when i turned the device back on, i got "MEM_MAP blank". No problem. but then i noticed it flashing that i needed to charge it,, several hours later of charging. still have low battery, ive tried to boot into recovery, no luck, i have a external dock if that information is useful, i dont need support on the mem map, just this charging issue.
