Problems with New Streak - 12-15-2010, 03:01 PM
Hi My Streak arrived today and It does not seem to be charging. I am get a variety of odd symbols on the screen, including a battery with an exclamation mark in a triangle, a picture of the end of the charging cable with an red question mark on the cable and a yellow exclamation mark on in a yellow triangle and sometimes the switched off charging screen as in post #6 above. However it does not seem to be charging and I have tried 2 cables and charging both from the supplied charger and via a USB connection to my PC. For the switched-off charging screen does that screen update to show how much charge there is? mine does not seem to change and I am pretty sure it is not chargeing at all. Any ideas?

If the battery was so dead that it wasn't even in a state to be powered on, you don't get the yellow battery graphic and warning, but an empty grey battery and red warning (or absolutely no response at all), but otherwise similar looking type graphic.
As soon as that stops, and the yellow charging indicator is showing, you can then power up and use the Streak (but keep it charging until the charge is full - 12 hours is likely overkill).
