    Green charging light

    Is something wrong with my backflip?
    I remember when i first got it and plugged it in to charge it the green light came on around charging plug

    now it doenst come on anymore.

    Am i missing something?

    Does it only come on once in a while? or maybe when the battery is below a certain point?

    can anyone help?

    The green light comes on when the device is charging. When the battery is full and done charging the green light will turn off.

    My light doesnt come on when im charging it and on the lock screen it says 93%

    Im thinking maybe it has to be below a certain level.

    Interesting I have not noticed the light not being on at a certain level of percentage. I'll keep a closer eye on mine and see if it does the same thing.

    My green light was on all day yesterday (not plugged in). It was kind of like it sensed something was "plugged in". Therefore, when I went to charge it - it would not charge unless I powered it off. (referenced in http://www.backflipforums.com/forum/...ard-reset.html)

    Oh, that reminds me - when I try to power it off - it comes right back on, so I have to pull the battery to keep it off. Then, place the battery back in and plug it up to charge. Very odd, but I'm still testing it to see if it's just a "phase". It's like a teenager, ugh. lol

    The phone works differently when charging from a wall charger or connected to a computer. I have a question posted in the Motorola Support Forum about this. I am waiting for one of the moderators/Moto employees to answer.

    This is my experience:

    When using the wall charger and the phone is off you will see the green light. With the phone on, no green light around the port. With a wall charger and the phone off pressing the power key briefly displays a screen with a big green battery and the charging status.

    If you connect to a computer with the provided cable the phone will restart immediately if turned off, if plugged in while off it will turn on. No green light around the port.

    strange I have not noticed this. When mine is plugged into the wall my slot turns green but i do not get a big green battery. The battery on my task bar turns green and the bar moves back in forth in the battery but it's still the same size.

    Also when i plug my phone into the computer a msg pops up asking if i want to access it as a usb drive or to just charge.

    The big green battery is only displayed when you charge your phone while it is off with the wall charger (adapter in the socket, cable plugged into the adapter). The battery status screen is displayed by pressing the power button briefly.

    You never see this screen while the phone is on or while charging from a computer with the provided cable. I don't know if there are any 'charge only' cables available to connect to a computer so you can charge the phone while it is off using your computer's usb port.

    AHH ok I never have my phone turned off ever. Be afraid I would miss a phone call.

    batmania,

    When I could not turn my phone off while plugged into the computer I tried all of the scenarios that I could think of to see if it was normal or not. I almost never turn my phone off in normal use. Just trying everything with the new phone.

    I am wondering if some reports of auto reboots are because people are trying to turn the phone off when it's connected to their computer?
