Hey guys,

This might be a complete newbie question but I can't find the answer in any manual. When I plug my phone in (be it to the wall or the computer) the only thing that appears on the screen is a half full battery with a red line through it.

What does this mean? How can I fix it?

Thanks,

Adam

Sounds like an invalid battery. Remove the battery and put it back in after 30 seconds. Also has the device gotten wet at all?

It did come through the mail which would say it got cold.....so maybe condensation?

I took out the battery for 30 seconds like you said.....when I put it back in, the red light on the top right appeared for 1 second, turned off....then 3 seconds later the same battery icon appeared.
