My microsoft Lumia 535 phone wont charge

Q: My microsoft Lumia 535 phone wont charge

Hi all
My microsoft charger is suddenly not charging my phone and my phone is taking too long to charge if its dies at all, with other chargers. It has also started going off spontaneously....anyone knows what the problem could be? Is it my charger/charging system or software problem? And how do I deal with it?
Thanks
Sophi

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A:lumia 800 wont charge or turn on, just vibrates every 20 seconds.

When was the last time you charged it?
If the battery was severely depleted it can take a good 2-3 hours of the vibrating before it actually starts up. Just leave plugged in using a wall adapter (not computer)

A:Lumia 640 win mobile 10. stuck on low charge screen wont turn on off charger

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

Make sure that the file ends in the .pdf format. If it doesn't, it will not open. I would suggest going to File Explorer to try to locate it if you are on Windows 10 Mobile. If you are on Windows Phone 8.1, try connecting your phone to a computer and select to view files using File Explorer.

A:how can I charge my phone while off?

There is just no way to do that I believe. It's a low-level firmware thing and Lumia's don't charge when powered off. They automatically power on.
The HTC 8X did get a firmware update a while back to enable charging when powered off, but its Lumia competitors like the 920 didn't get that feature.

When I connect to a charger, I can fell a little heat around the USB, but the Ampere app doesn't detect any charging. If the charger has a led, the light even goes off when I connect the phone.

While the Lumia 530 does have GPS, it does not have a magnetometer sensor which would be used for an on-board compass.
As for marine apps, it might be helpful to know where in the world you are navigating. Marine Nav seems pretty specialized by region.

You did well resetting, but most important is changing ALL paswords, best via pc, and later in the phone.
Everything: Microsoft account, Skype, Facebook, viber ecc eccecc.
After that relax, and teach your son he must NEVER open a message or a mail from unknow people. (took his phone and enable Skype privacy to contacts)

G'day folks I am currently debating whether to jump the iOS ship been on 10 from Phone 930)? migrate iPhone Should Windows to (Lumia I it since day one and try my sea legs out on the Windows Phone side of the ocean Would anyone recommend doing this I have been checking out many articles online with various Should I migrate from iPhone to Windows Phone 10 (Lumia 930)? opinions about staying with WP or jumping ship and questions about Microsoft's future in the mobile space I figure that spending a couple hundred dollars on a new Lumia is a fairly risk-free investment in the potential conversion I know about the quot app gap quot already but I do have some other questions that I was hoping could be answered Is it possible to transfer my history from my iPhone version of WhatsApp to WP or does WhatsApp remember my chats as long as my SIM - and phone number - doesn't change What about transferring contacts and text messages SMS and MMS from my iPhone to WP Looking at the Microsoft Store what is the best way to work out whether a listed app is available for the Lumia I am sure I will come up with other questions before I make a final decision but I will leave them for another post

A:Should I migrate from iPhone to Windows Phone 10 (Lumia 930)?

1. I would not recommend make the switch but it sounds like you're keeping your iPhone around which should be fine.
I would spend even less on Windows though given MS's disinterest, maybe a nice Lumia 640 will work.
2. Depending on where your contacts are stored, you should be able to sync them with Windows Phone. (whether by Gmail, Outlook or iCloud, those can be added to W10M.)

You can not. The developer, Niantic Labs, has not written it for windows 10 or 8.1, and they have locked it down so 3rd party apps don't work. You may never be able too it just depends if the developer decides to put it on Windows.

Hi,
With the update from 10586.494 to 14393.5 the Lumia 635 became useless. Completely useless.
The nav bar is constalntly on and hiding the menu items on ALL apps, including built-in ones, like camera, calculator, phone dialer... all.
The phone became useless instantly.
Previously, the nav bar was outside of the system screen, now it became the part of it.
I cannot switch it off or hide it
WHY?????
Please fix it or it will be in the bin in a week (and I think I will not be the only one).
Thanks

Over the course of the last 2 or so weeks it seems most if not all of our users have been affected by their email stopping syncing on their phones. On the phone it asks them ?fix? the problem and directs them to the login page to re-enter the password, if they enter their current password it seems to fix the problem but the email doesn?t sync and the ?fix? box appears again. Looking to resolve the issue I noticed that there were duplicate work email accounts and also sometimes duplicated Outlook & Live accounts under the ?accounts used by other apps? section.
If I removed the duplicate work account and re-entered the password that resolved the problem but this wasn?t always the case, sometimes the account had to be removed fully and added again.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I recently bought a wireless 3G USB modem / hot spot. Although i use it primarily by plugging in my PC USB port, It just occurred to me that my smartphone charger also has a USB port. So i was wondering if i can use the modem by using the charger USB port or not. That way i will not have to keep my PC powered on all the time. My charger has a output rating of 5V and 830mA. I reckon there shouldn't be a problem but want to be sure lest i damage the modem.

I currently have an 8GB,Micro SDHC, Class 4, Non-branded Memory Card in my phone, but it's full up. I have bought & tried a Kingston 64GB, Micro SDXC, Class 10; a SanDisk, 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 10; & a Samsung 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 4. None of them is recognized by my phone, although they work fine in my laptop. Do I need to reduce the size down to a 32GB, SDHC, or what can anybody recommend for me to try next. I have read that somebody has installed a 128GB in the same model phone & got it to work, but I don't want to go to the expense for that size. Thanks for any suggestions!

A:Memory card for Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone.

It's not something I've experienced, so maybe someone who's experienced the problem first hand will come along shortly. However, when you say they aren't recognised, I assume it shows the SD Card in Storage Sense as 'not found'? Just out of interest, if you install the 'Files App' (a Microsoft App), does if show the card then?

Another thing to check is whether the cards are formatted to the right file system? Taken from HERE:






What file systems do my Lumia phone support?

Your phone supports FAT32 for SDHC cards, exFAT for SDXC cards, with a single Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table.

- Up to 32-GB SDHC cards using the FAT file system.
- 64-GB SDXC cards using the exFAT file system.



Instructions for formatting the card here:
FAQ - My memory card is not working properly in Lumia phone - Microsoft - UK

If that doesn't work, a quick Google search shows that some people have needed to completely reset the phone before it would recognise their SD card. Obviously, this would be a bit of a sledge hammer solution and not particularly ideal as it would entail backing up your entire phone, completely wiping it and starting again from scratch by going to Settings > About > Reset Your Phone.

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!
