Motorola Droid :: How To Fix Screen Jumps A Bit While Charging Phone?
Nov 16, 2009
When my phone is charging my screen tends to jump a bit when I'm scrolling, has anyone else noticed this? If I scroll up or down and leave my finger in the screen, the screen will jump up and down in small jerky movements around my finger. I also noticed while playing breakout that the slider will have jerky movement as well while charging. Hope I'm not the only one who experiences this, it's not a big deal but bothers me. Does not happen when not charging. Also, some times when trying to tap the screen and select something does your droid randomly scroll down maybe 8% of the time? I have this issue as well.
I was messaging around today and found where to shut of the screen while charging, but I wanted to turn it back on and can't find where it is? Also before the update I could have sworn there was an option on the screen timeout to set it to never. Now I don't have that option.
I'm using DockRunner to simulate the docking station and charging my Driod via a USB cable connected to my phone. After 30 seconds (my timeout setting) the screen goes dark.Is there a setting I am missing to keep the screen from timing out when connected via USB and in the Dock mode?
The screen brightness on my epic will jump from 0% to 75%. I have auto brightness off and the power control widget is not on any of my screens. Does anyone know what is causing this and how I can fix it?
I've noticed some odd behavior when using a wall charger for an Amazon Kindle 2. The moment I plug in the charger it's as if there are fifty phantom fingers touching the screen repeatedly. I've heard others report similar behavior with various other non-moto chargers.the Kindle charger charges the Droid just fine, as does my Blackberry charger that I use at work. I just plug them in and immediately turn the screen off. I've been using those for 2 weeks and haven't noticed any ill effects as long as I turn the screen off immediately after plugging in the charger.At first I thought that any standard USB micro charger with the proper voltage should work without any issues. That is obviously not the case, but it leaves me wondering what causes the odd screen behavior. Are some chargers just not shielded properly? Is it EM interference activating the touchscreen? Or is the moto charger just special somehow? Maybe some EE type out there can figure out or explain what the deal is with this.
Well so after a cross country meet I had my Droid 2 in my backpack and I was going to call my dad. It wouldn't turn on, so I thought that it was just because my battery died. When I got home the next day, I charged it for a while and then turned it on, but it still wouldn't charge. I'm thinking that it is dead, but the charger is messed up because I didn't see anything on the Droid that was blinking, so I think that means its not charging. Can someone please help me?
Ive noticed that my phone runs at 500-550mhz regardless of what profile i have setcpu set for charging. At first i thought it was usb debugging but when i have it on my wall or car charger it ramps up to 500-500mhz. I have tried setting my phone with setcpu to run 250/250/ when charging at it goes straight to 500-550mhz. I confirmed this with system panel as well. This happens in both bugless beast v.04 and kangerade 5.0.3. I even removed setcpu and notice the phone going to 500-550mhz. Is anyone having this same issue? I had my phone on the car charger with 70% with the scren on during a trip with no programs running. At the end of the trip the phone was at 40% and running hot. Not exactly what i want when its suppoe to be charging.
On friday I am going to be getting my droid in another city and driving home, roughly 2 hours. Should I plug it in and let it charge all the way home? Can I use it? Should I leave it off and charge it when I get home for the night?
I'm sure there is a thread for this but i can't seem to find it but does anyone know if you can keep the droid powered off while charging it? i have the dock and every time i shut down the droid and put it on the dock or plug in the micro usb the droid powers back on. is this possible at all?
Hey guys I had a question wanted to know am I suppose to have some type of charging light when the phone is powered off and plugged into the wall charger? or does this only come on when the phone is fully charged?
Let me start by saying that i get excellent 3g speeds and reception. My issue is that often during long calls, i find that my phone switches to edge or often gprs. after the phone call, it quickly jumps back to 3g.
I have a good question (I think). Is there a way to keep the screen awake while charging the phone? For example, I keep it on the charger almost all day while I'm at work. And it would be nice just to glance over at it to see if I have an email and such. Any ideas?
When i click on batch, then run to backup my apps it jumps back to the Backup/Restore screen with all the apps, nothing gets backed up. I have backed up before with Titanium and it worked. I reinstalled Busybox, didn't help. If i uninstall and reinstall will i lose all the things i did like freeze apps etc ? When i try to update through the marketplace it says installation error, package file was not signed correctly.
Well after long waiting I got the moment! So far so good and really enjoying my first smartphone. Now How do i get the phone screen to go to sleep when charging? Can't find anywhere how to do this? Is this normal? It does get pretty warm and not sure if this is good for the screen? When is not plugged it goes to sleep on the 30sec. which is selected?
So after rooting my phone. Couple days later i had it charging and decided to turn off my phone and before I knew it. It automatically turn itself back on? Y is that? I am using bb 0.4 p3 kernel 1.0 on blue energy theme.
When my phone is plugged in my cursor jumps to the left making it impossible to type or access applications that are not on the menu screen all the way to the left. It also navigates itself away from web pages and I think the constant left motion of the cursor makes the phone run slowly. I cant look at maps either.
I am going crazy here... I've had this thing since it launched and everything is great except I keep hitting buttons with my face during calls! I mute, sometimes end calls, start 3 way calls etc and I have no idea how to prevent it. Is there any way I can make the screen lock during phone calls or change the call screen altogether?
I have been reading a lot on this issue since my 3 week old Eris has started moving the home screens and cursors to the far left but only when charging. Is there a fix to this I can do myself? I know if I go to Verizon (corp store) they will offer to replace it with a FRU model (refurb) and I will not have that since this phone is brand new. Since being a Verizon customer for 4 years I have had FRU replacements all resulting in a replacement phone that has even more issue's than the one it replaced which then resulted in a multi model FRU to a new phone (Samsung Gleam (2 replacements) to a new Env2 (3 Env's) then to an new LG voyager that lasted 2 years.What worries me is that Verizon has dropped the Eris and if I cant get a new Eris replacement I know they are going to throw the cinder block sized Moto Droid at me.
So I bought my Milestone today, after I played a while with it I plugged the charger and after a while a white light appeared near plug (I don't know if is normal or not ) and now I can not open the mobile any more. I even pulled out the battery..but the same result.
So my phone (Motorola triumph) recently started having charging issues. When I plug it in I usually have to wiggle it a bit for it to charge...then if I just leave it for a bit and don't touch it I will come back like 15min later and it won't be charging.
Tried multiple chargers and they have the same problem.
I just bought a used Eris off of Ebay to hold me over until January or so. It came rooted with the XTRsense rom, overclocked, apps2sd, etc. The phone runs great and the battery life seems decent, however, it won't charge. When I plug it in, the battery icon shows that it's charging, but when I unplug it, the battery is still at the same percentage. I left it charging overnight last night, and it was still at like 40% life this morning. Any ideas as to what could be causing this? If it's hardware related, I don't mind popping it open if it saves me from dealing with the hassle of returning this phone and going back to my Storm.
Has anybody else experienced when charging the phone with a non-motorola charger (got it from ebay for like $5), you really can't operate the phone. I then used it with the charger that came with the phone and everything is fine.
Charges fine with wall charger. Just plugged it into computer and 'no charging'. It did go thru 'usb connect', did NOT load driver, and is 'not charging'?USB symbol at top of screen(Launcher Pro), screen stays on but no moving charger symbol.Am I actually charging?Does the battery icon just not move with USB connect with Launcher Pro?Will find out one way or the other EDIT: OK. I changed the 'USB connection' setting from "PC Mode" to "Charge Only" and the battery symbol now shows charging. That is weird.
