Re: torch 9800


Im not sure what it actually means but I get this problem every time I take the battery out of my phone.

Everything was OK till I got a new battery due to the other one loosing its charge. It came with a plastic cradle where you put the old battery and the new one and I think it synchronizes the two batteries. I don't know why you should need this, but if I follow this and put the battery back in the phone it works OK and the battery and cross symbols don't show

Re: torch 9800

It means the device does not recognize a battery being inserted or the battery is deeply drained. Sometimes, the on-device battery is deeply drained as well.


Do this:
Leave the device to charge 2-3 hours, and then, still connected to the charging cable, remove the the battery from the device a few seconds and reinsert it. If it boots--leave it to charge to 100% (check Options > Status for the percentage). If it doesn't reboot on the first attempt, leave it several more hours. I've had one charge for two days before it came back to life after an extreme battery depletion. Every 3-4 hours, with the device still connected to the charger, you can remove and replace the battery to see if it reboots.

Re: torch 9800

Is it that big battery symbol with the red strike through it?
