Default Can't charge battery

Please Login to Remove!

I plugged my phone in last night before going to bed and this morning the battery was still extremely low. I shut it down and took the battery out and reinserted it, turned it back on and tried to recharge again for several hours but it still want charge.
I had a new battery, so I put that one in, turned it on and tried to charge that one, but it want charge either. No matter how long I leave them plugged in, the battery indicator shows a discharged battery.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can try or do?
Thanks

How are you charging, wall charger or USB? Have you tried a different method and/or plug?

Have you let the battery run past 20% more than a few times?

I'm using the factory wall charger, however I'm now trying a "NonRIM" charger that I got off of ebay just to see if that will make a difference. I'm wondering if the charger itself might be bad.
Yes, I have let the battery go past 20% a few times, but as previously stated I have installed a new battery and am having the same problem.

I think I have found the problem and it is the charger itself. I noticed the generic charger is showing the "flash" on the charger icon whereas the BB charger did not. I left it plugged in for a while and it charged the new battery right up. I then switched back to the old battery and it seems to be charging it up as well, so I think I've found my problem.
I'm sure the generic charger is fine, but I think I'll be buying another BB charger just to be safe.
Thanks for your help.

I'm glad you figured out the problem. That would've been my first guess from what you told us about even using a new battery in your phone that won't charge. It did at first glance seem like a faulty charger. You might have the best luck using the charger that was made for your phone.
