Default CHARGING ISSUES: Pearl battery will only charge via USB but not with the wall charger

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys, is my first post in this site and I'm impressed by the amount of information you could find here!

I am having an issue charging my pearl. Yesterday, I had it plugged into the wall charger for about 3 hours but the battery charging meter didnt move up. It shows the connector icon but it doesnt charge. However, this morning I plugged it to my USB and that works. Do you guys think is the Wall Charger that I need to replace?

thanx!

Juan luis

Possibly you do need to change the wall charger but try it in a different electrical socket first to be sure.

Or the cord going to the wall charger. If the charge symbol is present on the screen, it should be charging.

Yep, some wall/car chargers won't charge the BB as they're using the wrong pins on the cord. If a "Blackberry" charger doesn't work (or a motorola, as I know those work too) then you may have a damaged pin on your USB port on your BB.

Eh... I have damaged pins... at first it was just it wouldnt charge with wall charger or car charger - only the PC. Now it only sporadically charges with PC... So what can we do? Just get a new phone? Try to get it repaired?

Ouch. Getting a new device is one option.

Repair is another. Contact HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, Canada’s Cellular Repair Center and inquire. Very reputable and honest dealing people.
