| | Curve shutting off - battery issue?
Please Login to Remove!
This just started happening a few days ago, but itís getting really annoying. Iíll be using my curve, and it will have anywhere between 50% and 80% battery charge, and then it will suddenly shut off. The only way to get it to turn back on is to pull out the battery and put it back in. When it boots back up, it shows the battery at 5% and either shuts back off or turns off the radio and goes into its low battery mode. At this point, I can pull the battery any number of times, but it always comes back with 5% battery life.
However, if I plug in the charger for a second, then do a battery pull, it comes back after the reboot showing the battery life from before (50-80%). Has anyone seen anything like this before? Is it a bad battery? Is there anything I can try before I buy a new battery? Thanks
