Nokia 5230 Charging problem.

[ Edited ]

Hello everybody,

 

I just got my 5230 two days ago, and the battery meter is the most confusing thing ever.

The first day I got the phone, I charged it all night but never got a full battery indicator. I don't even know what the full battery icon looks like. No matter how long I charge it, it still shows the 'stacking bars' charging icon. This is my first Nokia, so please excuse me if I'm just not seeing it or something. Also, what is the low battery indicator? My phone died last night out of nowhere. The last time I checked it, it had all the battery bars there. I checked the phone ten minutes later and it wouldn't even turn on and tell me to recharge it. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi k20tech

 

Here is a screenshot of 5230 with full battery: http://i51.tinypic.com/141s9i9.jpg

 

Normally low battery warning is an audible tone unless "Warning tones" set to off in individual profile.

 

What charger are you using as something is not right with battery or device here?

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Hi scoobyman,

 

Thanks for the screenshot. That is the way my phone looks after unplugging it from the charger. But, while plugged in, it always has the stacking bars/charging indicator even after 8 hours of charging. When I unplug it, it has the full battery amount of bars.

 

I'll use the phone a lot today and see if I missed the low battery warning. Maybe it was my fault.

 

I am using the AC-8U charger as supplied by Nokia.

Re: Nokia 5230 Charging problem.

I have also just bought a 5230 and have exactly the same problem i.e. if the phone is plugged into the charger then the bars always move.  The battery never seems to get full.  Is this a general Nokia 'issue' or is my phone (or battery?) faulty? Thanks
