Bold not charging fully?

Whenever I plug my bold to charge it only charges 50% and the bar doesn't move from there. However I tried turning the phone off and charging it while its off, and this way it charges fully.

 

What can I do to fix this? I already tried taking out the battery for a min and put it back in, but didn't work.

Re: Bold not charging fully?

I have found that sometimes using a different charger (like an AC wall charger) rather than the USB to PC charger will fix that glitch.

 

Also... this:


 

Roughly every 30 charges, deliberately discharge your battery to 10-15%, and fully charge to 100% afterwards. This will help maintain the accuracy of the “fuel gauge” on the device (your battery meter or scale). It has nothing to do with the battery memory (as mentioned, Li-ion batteries do not have memory) but helps maintain the accuracy of the device’s percentage of battery charge left.

Sorry what do you mean by discharge? Just let the batteries run low to 10% then charge fully?

Also it's not charging fully by the wall adapter
