Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

Since the first time that I charged my Z10, during the recharging process the led was blinking red, the morning after was (as for the past devices) green.

Last two nights, in the morning the led was still blinking red, I would say pink, but switching  the device on, the battery was 100% loaded.

Which could be the problem?

Thanks in advance

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

Do you suspect that the red blinking LED could have been a new message or alert to the device?

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

Before switching the BB off, I always check if there is any message unread. I don' know if Z10 can advise a message even if switched off.

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

OK, just tested the same on my Z10 with it turned off (I never turn mine off).

 

After about one minute, I notice the reddish (orange) LED blink, to indicate it is charging, or has completed charge to 100%.

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

Right JS, but until two days ago, that led just after the connection starts to red blink , after some time changed to orange blink ( probably to advise a good charge) and in the morning use to be green (100%), I can swear you ! Unbelievable...

Well, what you swear to me? I don't undestand.

 

Each post you're mentioning something different.

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

I'm sorry, probably I explained not bad the problem.

I charge Z10 during the night, switched off.

Up to two day ago, the led was red at the beginning, getting orange and green the morning after.

Since two days , I'm finding the orange led blinking in the morning (so at least 8 hours after the beginning of charge) but the battery is on 100% . My post was just to try to know why this change.

Thanks

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

Ohhh... OK. I am understanding.

 

I wonder - -are you truly hitting 100% charge? What if the battery is actually at 99% and stuck there. It would not show blinking green.

 

Are you using a Battery app such as Battery Guru to test or follow your battery usage?

Re: Z10 - Led blinking red during charge

No, you're right JS,I've not app that can give me the proof of 100% charge.

But I've BB experience, I cannot believe that a new original battery, with an original re-charger plug, can take more than 8/9 hours to complete the process...

In any case I will download Battery Guru and will try it.

Thanks

It's a pretty darn good app any power user would want.
