Xiaomi does not turn on (red light flashes)

Xiaomi smartphones have several colors of diodes on their main panel at once, and each of them can signal a serious or not very breakdown. A red light that constantly flashes when your gadget breaks down indicates that the problem is critical and you can’t do without user or service center action. What to do in this case? Let’s look at a few examples when your Xiaomi does not turn on and at the same time the red light on the display is flashing.

For which models is this manual suitable?

Since most of the Xiaomi smartphone line was produced on the same composite platform, this instruction is suitable for diagnosing most models. Of which in Russia the main ones are known under the names:

Broken charger socket

The first and most common reason (according to the reports of service centers). charging plug failure. over, the problem can be both in the phone connector itself and in the cable. Being frayed due to prolonged use, the cable fibers can come into contact with the braid or with those cable cores through which data is exchanged and a power surge can damage the phone’s charge controller in this way. Often Xiaomi starts flashing a red light at the time of charging, and the user only notices after a while that the phone does not turn on and is faulty.

Battery problem

The second reason. bad battery. In this case, the battery charge controller may also be faulty. Very rarely this happens due to prolonged use of the Xiaomi battery, more often the reason is a simple failure of the microcircuit or charging with a non-original cord, dropping the phone on a hard surface, and so on. Often employees of mobile phone repair centers use a similar device:

It is called in slang “frog” and allows you to check. whether the battery is charging with a direct charge (bypassing the phone’s microcircuits when charging through a cord). But you need to use it wisely, because by mixing up the contacts you can ruin your phone’s battery. In any case, Xiaomi manufacturers recommend replacing a battery that has been used for more than a year and a half with a new one.

Power controller burnt out

The third and also very common reason. Power surge, strong spark from static electricity hitting the connector, dropping the phone. All this can cause the failure of the power controller. Repair to replace it costs from 1800 to 3500 rubles, depending on that. for which phone model you need this part and what price category the phone has. It can be changed by specialists, not necessarily at an authorized service center, but we always recommend that phones be repaired by officials. Especially if your case is under warranty. you will be repaired for free, or even given a new phone.

Rare cases

In rare cases, Xiaomi does not turn on and at the same time a red light flashes on the display because:

Redmi red light blinking issue solved. mi/ Xiaomi

This happens too, but rarely. The cable can connect a touch screen or a power button or top panel sensors, in any case, the red light will flash to indicate a malfunction and the phone will not turn on. Such work is inexpensive in the service, because it comes down to removing the protective cover and installing the cable in place. We do not recommend doing it yourself without plastic wringing tools, as there is a risk of chipping the plastic.

In any case, we recommend that you take the phone for diagnostics to a trusted service center. We recommend doing self-repair of smartphones of the current generation only after gaining extensive experience in this field of activity and having a specialized tool.

We solve the problem

Consider the possible causes of the problem and directly effective solutions. If you are completely unfamiliar with smartphones, follow each instruction in order.

Full discharge

The first case. the phone flashes red due to a completely dead battery. This happens in cases where the owners throw the smartphone on the back burner, trying to bring it to its senses in a few weeks / months.

The nature of the failure is simple. the battery has completely lost its energy, which does not even allow the system to start even elementarily. This provokes indifference to the power key.

First connect your phone and wait about an hour

The solution does not require complex manipulations from you. just leave your smartphone on charge, literally for a few hours. After that, it is recommended to hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds, as the system may not respond to normal startup attempts.

In my case, a completely dead Samsung Grand Prime smartphone had to hang on charge for about an hour, after which the charge came to life and went on. Therefore, this option should not be ruled out.

Software failure

Important. this method only works when the smartphone is suddenly turned off with a full / partial charge. Let’s use the Hard reset of the Android system (Hard Reset), which is present in any modern smartphone:

  • We put the phone into Recovery Mode. For some models, the transition method is different, by default, you need to hold down the volume, power and Home buttons (middle on the bottom in the front model). To clarify the exact translation mechanism, you can use the search engine.
  • Hold the combination for up to 20 seconds, after which the device software menu appears.
  • We stop at the item Reset all software data (Wipe data / Factory reset).
  • Select the column Confirm (Yes. delete all user data).
  • After that, we find the item Reboot right now (reboot system now).

After a reboot, the problem should be gone. It should be noted that all data will be erased, and there may also be problems logging in due to an unknown Google account error.

Power supply failure

It sounds funny, but sometimes it is a broken outlet that likes to ruffle the nerves of smartphone owners. try connecting the charger to another, after checking the performance with other household appliances.

Another common case is damage to the USB cable or charger unit. Try changing your diet. Pull cable bends, blow out plugs and sockets.

Separately, check the capabilities of the power supply itself. milliamp data should be written on it. Perhaps your unit does not have enough speed to start a smartphone / tablet. By the way, a very common problem on cheap Chinese devices.

Remove any debris, dust and dirt from the connectors

Battery failure

It is possible to check the battery status only on devices with a removable cover. carefully remove it, take out the battery. We examine it for blisters, obvious scratches, melted / burnt elements.

Be sure to check the battery

If everything is fine, we wipe it with a damp cloth, we also do not bypass the terminals (protruding contacts). They must be even, otherwise we do not recommend correcting anything on our own.

In the case of a non-removable battery, you need to use special applications. AccuBattery (checks the battery charge controller) and Battery. But they will be relevant after any inclusion.

Mechanical damage

  • The power button is broken / displaced, which does not allow you to simply give a signal. Such a repair will cost you no more than 4, provided that the native button is preserved.
  • Damaged socket for the USB cable. may be the result of careless handling, abrupt pulling of the cable. Repair will not cost a penny either, spend around 6-12 (depending on the model).
  • Battery death is one of the most frustrating options. Repairing the battery is obviously useless, and if you buy a new one, sometimes you have to wait up to a month for delivery.
  • The contacts inside the back cover are damaged. they are responsible for transmitting power to the elements of the mobile phone. In this case, it is difficult to estimate the cost of repairs, it all depends on the deplorable situation, model, service center.

The phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on. where to go?

We strongly do not recommend making repairs on your own, disassembling inaccessible elements using guides on the Internet. they are also made by professionals in their field, who should be contacted with a similar problem.

Even better, find a specialized smartphone brand repair department in your city. Yes, repairs from the manufacturer most often come out more expensive, but you get a guarantee of the quality of the work done.

If the phone’s warranty has not yet expired, you can try taking the device to the appropriate electronics store. Naturally, it will be repaired free of charge only in the event of a factory defect, and not intentional damage, but an attempt is not torture.

We hope this material helped you figure out the situation when the phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on. most often our instructions help, the main thing is to do everything right!

Most laptops use a series of lights to express the state of the computer.

Each indicator has multiple states such as on, off, slow flashing or fast.

They can also switch between different colors (much depends on the model).

Each computer manufacturer uses their own codes to indicate the state of charge of a laptop, but there are also commonalities.

NOTE: If you have problems with the charge indicator, the first thing I recommend is to calibrate the battery. How? Here is the instruction.

Charger

Most laptops show a green, blue, or purple light to indicate that the battery is fully charged.

Many manufacturers indicate that the laptop is in the process of charging by showing a steady or flashing green, orange, blue, or purple light.

If the battery indicator is green, blue or purple, then the battery is functional, regardless of whether the light is flashing color or not.

If the light is orange, the laptop is most likely in the process of charging.

What is this problem?

The phone flashes when charging is connected and does not turn on. such symptoms are quite common, and in different models of smartphones. Naturally, it is not so easy to single out a single reason for this behavior of the device.

Phone flashes while charging and won’t turn on

This can be anything from phone battery problems to a typical system freeze, regardless of the pre-installed OS. All popular smartphone brands are victims of such a failure, including:

Laptop battery indicator in Windows. Red X on the battery icon.

If you are having trouble determining the battery status using the indicator, you can look at the data about it in Windows.

Battery indicator on the Windows taskbar

The battery indicator is located in the system tray on the taskbar. If the icon shows an electrical plug, then at this moment the laptop is connected to the network through the power supply and the battery is in the process of charging (or fully charged). If you hold the cursor on the battery indicator in the taskbar, Windows will display information about the level of the current charge.

If you click on the battery icon, more detailed information will be displayed.

Detailed battery prompt

Electric plug when charging the battery

If there is no electrical plug, and the laptop is connected to the network, this indicates problems with the battery or power supply.

When the battery is discharged to a certain level, Windows will display a message about the need to charge and add an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle to the battery icon.

If Windows diagnoses battery problems or a critical battery level, then the battery icon will have a red X.

Information about laptop battery problems

If you need to see more detailed information about the state of the laptop battery, then go to the appropriate section in the Windows control panel.

Start menu. Control Panel. Power supply. There you can choose a power saving plan, set the action of the power buttons, etc.

Battery indicator readings on laptops from different manufacturers

Below we have tried to collect information about the operation of battery indicators on laptops from popular manufacturers. Perhaps this will help you navigate in case of problems with your laptop battery. The information was collected from various sources and may contain some inaccuracies. If you find a discrepancy, write in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев. We will fix it promptly.

Many Asus laptops have a two-color battery charge indicator. It can be in the following states:

  • green. The battery charge is 95─100%. The laptop is powered by electricity;
  • Orange. The laptop is running on mains and the charge level is less than 95%;
  • orange flashes. The laptop is running on battery power. The charge level is less than 10%;
  • switched off. The laptop is powered by a battery, the charge level is 10-100%.

For Acer laptops, the battery light basically has two states:

For Dell laptops, the battery indicator works as follows.

  • lights up green. The battery is being charged;
  • flashing green. The battery charge is almost full;
  • switched off. Disconnected from external power or fully charged.

On most Sony laptops, the manufacturer makes the following indication:

  • lights up orange. The battery is being charged;
  • flashing green. Charging ends in normal mode;
  • blinking orange. The battery is running out of charge in sleep mode;
  • fast blinking orange. Battery failure or improper installation.

Lenovo

Lenovo laptops are quite simple:

Toshiba

Toshiba has the following battery status indication:

Samsung

In the case of HP, it’s hard to say anything definite, since the battery indicator is installed on a limited number of models. The user manuals for many HP models recommend focusing on the Windows battery icon on the taskbar. It is recommended to determine when the battery needs to be charged. You can also use the HP Support Assistant utility for this purpose. Additionally, you can read about programs for calibrating laptop batteries.

On the Asus laptop there is another mode: alternating flashing of red and green. What does that mean 100% not sure.

maybe green indicates that it is working from the network, and red is the activity of the hard drive?

I have the same problem with Asus X751L: blinking with alternating orange and green, only the laptop is 3.5 years old. At the same time, as if the battery charge does not decrease (on the panel for 2-3 days the charge is 95%)

Hello Bogdan! Many thanks for the article, very informative and simply stated. I have such a problem, can you tell me what to do: The Asus U30J laptop, I didn’t do it correctly. it was almost constantly connected to mains power, even when the battery was 100% charged (knowing that this spoils the battery, but that’s it did). So my computer just shut down the other day. Then I turned it on and I see that the battery indicator is off, and the icon on the taskbar says that the battery is connected, but not charging. I took out the charging cord and put it back in, charging turned on, but turned off after 10 seconds. In general, the problem is that it charges (maybe charge for 10-20 minutes or longer), then it turns off. At what I understood that the charge reaches a certain level (less than 100% of course) and stops charging. And this certain level of charge is not the same number, each time a new one, yesterday it reached 83, today it was 75, now I’m just waiting for what will happen (at the moment 72% and while charging). Can you tell me what it could be and should I replace the battery? Or is there really some other way to fix it? I already disconnected the laptop from the network and turned it off, pulled out the battery and held the laptop power button for 30 seconds (I read that you can reset some kind of battery settings this way). I don’t know what or how. I don’t want to take it to a service center yet, or rather, there is no such possibility, I really need a laptop for work. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Tatyana, the laptop could turn off for various reasons, not necessarily related to the battery. What can you try to do? 1) Disconnect the laptop from the network and work until it is completely discharged. Then plug in the adapter and see how the charging process goes. 2) If the battery lasts 3-4 years and the laptop works on it for less than an hour without a network, you can buy a new one. He did his job. 3) The problem may not be in the battery, but in the power adapter or laptop power connector. The power adapter can only be checked by replacing it with another one that is definitely working. The power connector can be checked by gently moving the cable from the adapter. If charging at the same time will then go then do not go, the point is in it. It will have to be changed at a service center.

Older adapters are rated at 60 watts, while newer laptops require 90 or 130 watt power adapters.

Hello. I have the following problem. I turned on the new Lenovo laptop for charging and the white light is on, what does this mean?

Hello. I have such a problem with the Asus F751L laptop, I have it for almost 2 years and the battery doesn’t want to work, I watched how the calibration was dialed CND, I also tried it, but for some reason the window didn’t open, in general, help me how to set up the battery, the indicator light doesn’t work, doesn’t light, I can’t find a single program how to hold the battery charge, if possible, advise what can be done in my case, because the computer is not even two years old.

Hello. The cable on the connection to the power supply was almost torn off. Soldered the wires. When I closed the case of the BC, an incomprehensible mechanical sound was heard with a slight vibration, but the BC was not connected to the network. What could it be? On the HP laptop itself, the light is constantly blinking orange. Help me to understand

Hello. The battery charge indicator blinks orange when the BC is connected and the charge level is 95% on the Asus laptop. Help me figure out what the problem is.

Good day, gentlemen, on my laptop Toshiba Satellite S50-A-K7M, as a result of changing the power scheme, the charging indicator starts flashing, after which I get a BSoD with an error: Video Memory Management Internal (Windows 10, 1903). I don’t want to degrade the performance of this laptop because I used to play on high graphics settings. Now, when the game starts, it gives a BSOD, with the same error. Tell me what to do.

When you turn on the laptop, the battery indicator glows orange, as if the battery is low, and after about an hour of use, the indicator starts blinking orange. This is fine?

Please add. flashing red and orange alternately on Asus laptops. battery overheating sign

The lack of a phone response to an attempt to turn it on is a nightmare for any user. But sometimes it becomes a reality, and this problem needs to be solved, preferably as soon as possible. This material will tell you what to do in a situation where the phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on.

Charging indicator in Windows system

If you are not sure what the indicator means, you can check the charging status of your computer in the Windows system.

Look for the battery icon in the notification area on the taskbar. If on the display icon, there is an electrical connector on the battery, then it is currently in the process of charging or is fully charged.

If there is no electrical plug and your computer is connected to a charger, then there may be problems with the charger or battery.

The screen will show a red X on the battery icon when Windows detects battery problems.

Hover your mouse over the icon to view the current battery level. Then a tooltip will appear with information about the current charge level and state of charge.

Asus charging indicator flashes red

Often, inexperienced users have a question about why the battery indicator on a laptop is flashing. Almost all manufacturers without fail make battery status indicators on their models. This is necessary to inform the user about a particular state in which the battery is located. The indicators can be on, off, blinking slowly or quickly. Each such state indicates a certain state of the battery. Unfortunately, these indicator signals on laptops can vary depending on the manufacturer and even model. Because of this, confusion arises and it is difficult for an unprepared person to understand why the battery indicator on his laptop is blinking.

Xiaomi phone flashes red light when charging

Xiaomi phones have an advantage that makes them pleasant in everyday use. the LED indicator located on the front side. Depending on the application used, or the situation, it flashes in a different color.

If a Telegram application notification arrives, the color is blue, if Viber is purple.

But what does flashing red mean when the battery is charging or the device is turned off?

The red indicator light may indicate a deep discharge of the battery.

If Xiaomi was turned off for a long time, a deep discharge of the battery could occur and the remaining energy is not enough to turn on the smartphone, this is indicated by the red color of the indicator.

When you try to turn on the smartphone, nothing happens, only the red light flashes.

In this case, connect your smartphone to the supplied charger for up to 6 hours.

Then try to turn on the phone again, if the problem is in the deep discharge of the battery, it will turn on.

Also, the red color is on during normal battery charging, when the charge is below 10% of the maximum, even if the phone is turned on and working properly.

Charger out of order

Charging, like any other gadget, can break down and fail. It begins to give a current of the wrong voltage and the wrong power for which the battery is designed. The chip that controls the process of transferring energy from the network to the battery sees this and, using red, signals that if you continue to use a faulty charger, you can permanently damage the phone or battery.

This indicator does not always indicate a breakdown in charging, but it is easier to check this particular version.

To check, connect Xiaomi to another charger, if it was charging, the indicator will not flash red.

All you have to do is buy a new branded Xiaomi charger and continue using your smartphone as usual.

Red color. possible battery failure

This operation is performed at your own peril and risk, the author of the article does not bear any responsibility for the consequences. Recommendation. contact the service center.

Have you changed the charger and the red light is still on? Let’s check the battery then.

This is difficult to do, especially if the design of the Xiaomi model does not imply easy disassembly at home. In this case, there is only one thing left. to give the phone to the service center for diagnostics.

If your Xiaomi understands, you need to do the following:

  • Open back cover
  • Find the battery cable connected to the board
  • Detach it carefully
  • Connect a known-good charger to your phone and turn it on.
  • If the smartphone is working, connect the battery cable in place
  • In this case, there is a chance that the operation of the battery controller has failed and, when reconnected, it returned to normal
  • If this operation did not help, take the phone to a service center

Broken USB socket contacts

In case of rough and careless handling of the phone, when connecting the USB cable, the internal structure of the USB socket is violated, which leads to short circuits, loss of the necessary contact or physical destruction.

You can check the health of the USB socket at home by connecting a known working and working charger to it.

If at the same time the red indicator goes out, the problem is not in the socket. If not, then there is a possibility that it is out of order, especially if during a visual inspection you have suspicions about its integrity.

It is possible to repair contacts or change the socket in the conditions of a repair service and only if the necessary tools are available. Don’t do it at home.

Loss of contact inside the USB cable also causes the indicator to flash red

Cable failure, like USB sockets, is due to rough handling.

Fortunately, it is very easy to check the cable. replace it with another one.

If the indicator changes color, then it was the cable, just buy a new one and replace the old one with it.

Phone charging process controller failure

On a common board, where many microcircuits and controllers are soldered, there is always one that controls the battery charging process.

Due to a manufacturing defect, water entering the smartphone or mechanical impact, this chip may break.

It is impossible to make sure that it is because of him that the red light is on at home, because for this you need to disassemble the phone and test the chip using special equipment. Only after testing can we unequivocally confirm the cause of the breakdown.

Short circuit on the common board of the phone

Short circuit is the most insidious reason for the red indicator on Xiaomi.

At home, it is generally impossible to determine the cause of the short circuit, moreover, it is impossible to determine exactly where it happened and what to do now.

The only advice in this case is to contact the repair shop.

After a short circuit, as a rule, a serious repair is needed with the replacement of a failed element, and this requires a new element, knowledge of how to remove the old one and install a new one, and how to start the phone after the procedure.

Algorithm for finding the cause of the red indicator flashing on Xiaomi phones

As you can see, there can be many reasons, at the end of the article I wrote an algorithm that, from simple to complex, will quickly determine the circle of suspects.

Steps to take to determine the true cause of the red color:

  • Leave the smartphone connected to charge for up to 6 hours (assuming that the charger and USB cable are known to be working)
  • Change the USB cable to another one
  • Connect your phone to another charger
  • Visually inspect the USB socket, evaluate its condition. If there is any foreign object inside, try to carefully remove it. If the appearance is not suspicious, proceed to the next step.
  • Take your phone to a service center for diagnosis

What to do if Xiaomi is not charging and the indicator is flashing. #SOLVED

If your Xiaomi does not charge or turn on, and the only sign of life is the blinking of the indicator, do not panic. In some cases, the Suomi logo may light up, but after a while the phone simply reboots. This is a fairly common problem with phones of this brand. Fortunately, in some cases, it is possible to cope with it on your own.

You have probably already tried:

What to do if Xiaomi does not charge

As a rule, this behavior of the phone indicates problems with the battery or charge controller. Most likely the phone stopped charging after it completely sat down and turned off. And if our device had a removable battery, we would use a frog charger and push the battery. But Xiaomi has built-in batteries and, even if you remove the battery, you won’t be able to use the “frog” because of the connection connector.

Be extremely careful. Everything you do, you do at your own peril and risk.

In order to get around this problem, you can try to use this trick:

What to do if the Xiaomi Redmi 5 indicator blinks and does not turn on.

Owners of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 smartphone are faced with a problem that manifests itself in the blinking of the indicator on the mobile. It is intended to notify the user of several reasons why the device cannot turn on. These instructions must be followed before returning the instrument for repair under warranty or after the expiration date.

Standard cases of indicator triggering.

The first situation is a complete discharge of the battery or lack of power to load the operating system.

Connect the charger, wait at least a few minutes, and turn on the phone.

If charging fails, you need to open the back cover, then disconnect the battery for a while. If you have a spare copy of the battery, you can check the functionality of the phone. There is a hardware-software defect that is eliminated in several steps:

SIM cards are removed; the screws securing the casing are unscrewed; the battery connector is disconnected; power is supplied; the battery is switched back on.

In the future, you will need to flash the device to a newer version of the OS. Professional repair will be needed in case of damage to the USB port or the motherboard of the device. This can be caused by a strong impact or careless movement during operation.

In the absence of a working charge, you can connect Redmi 5 to a computer. If the USB connector is working, the smartphone will be immediately recognized, and the battery will begin to receive electricity. When ten percent is reached, the indicator will stop blinking, and the device can be turned on.

Recommendations for owners

What needs to be done to achieve the result:

Wait until the phone is charging. this is a must when flashing, since lowering the level will entail a sudden shutdown and bringing the device to a “brick” state, which is not easy to restore without additional equipment; if you find physical damage or oxidation of contacts, it is preferable to give Xiaomi Redmi 5 to a professional to fix ; do not attempt to repair without knowing the basic design of the device.

Problem with turning on your Xiaomi smartphone? 4 possible reasons

While using a Xiaomi smartphone, a rather unpleasant and, at first glance, incomprehensible situation can happen. the phone turns off and does not turn on. What can be ways to solve this problem and what in general can it be??

Of course, for each individual smartphone, problems can be completely different and various factors influence their appearance, but we will consider the most common of them.

Problem Deep discharge

A fairly common problem is that the Xiaomi smartphone does not turn on and the red LED flashes. This may indicate a complete discharge of the battery. In this case, the smartphone does not have enough energy to start the system, and therefore, pressing the power button does not lead to the desired result.

Solution: put the smartphone on charge and only after a while (one hour) try to turn it on by long pressing the power button (10 seconds)

But there may be a problem here. a damaged charging cable. Try connecting some other smartphone or any other device to it and see if it will charge. Replace cable if necessary.

This also includes the problem with a broken USB port in a smartphone, which will require replacement at a service center.

Problem System freezes

The second common problem is a system crash that turns off the smartphone and prevents it from turning on normally.

Solution: For smartphones with a removable back cover, you can try to remove the battery and reinstall it in the smartphone, and then try to turn it on. For most that have non-removable covers, there is another way. long press the power button for up to 10 seconds. In this case, a deep reboot will be performed and there is a possibility that the smartphone will be able to turn on.

Problem Breakage of the power button and other mechanical damage

There are situations when the inability to turn on the smartphone is associated precisely with mechanical damage that occurred when the device fell or as a result of a manufacturing defect.

In this case, most likely, you will need to contact the service center to troubleshoot and fix it.

It may also be due to a malfunction of the power controller when the smartphone does not turn on and does not charge. To check this, you need to insert a known charged battery into the smartphone and try to turn it on.

Problem Firmware failure

Very often you may encounter a problem when the screen lights up, but the smartphone does not boot. This is due to a firmware bug. To resolve this issue, you will need to reinstall the software. One way could be using the Mi Flash app.

The battery charging light is flashing

All manufacturers supply their laptops with light indication. On each device, you can find a certain number of LEDs that tell the user about the status of the battery, the operation of the processor and hard drives, or about the active CapsLock or NumLock keys. However, the most informative is the battery indicator. By blinking, you can determine the state of the battery.

Why is the battery charging light flashing?

The battery status LED has several flashing and color styles. Depending on their combination, you can determine what is wrong with the battery. The trouble is that different models of laptops have completely different indications. But the general principles are the same.

  • The indicator flashes red. This is fine. Such an alarm means that the battery is almost dead and needs to be charged immediately. This is usually accompanied by an operating system message advising you to connect the charger.
  • The LED flashes green. This means that the laptop is in standby mode. This usually happens when the lid is closed.
  • The light is solid green. This means that the battery is fully charged, or the laptop is running on mains and not on battery.
  • The battery charge lamp flashes when the charger is connected. But this is already bad. There is a problem here. Just not sure what. It may be the fault of both “charging” and the battery itself.

The color indication of the battery, as well as the style of its flashing, may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. But one thing is certain. if the indicator flashes red (or orange) when the charger is connected, then there is a clear problem.

Troubleshooting Methods

The most important thing is to determine what is the reason for the blinking of the light bulb. It is very easy to do this. It is enough to refer to the operating system of the laptop. If the problem is with the battery, then Windows will issue a warning that the battery is damaged. This message will appear in the system tray on the right side. If everything is fine with the battery (according to Windows), but the battery charge light is still flashing when the charger is connected, then the problem has arisen with the charger itself.

If it’s the battery, then you can’t do anything with it. You will have to buy a new one or change the components to new ones too. how to do this, you can read in the article: laptop battery repair. In the case of charging, things can be simpler. You need to disassemble the charger and “ring” it with a tester. If the matter is in frayed wires, then it is quite possible to fix it on your own. But if some capacitor burned out, then it’s easier to throw out such a charge and buy a new one.

The display on the laptop is very useful. The battery LED is especially informative. If it flashes in a non-standard color, then be prepared to invest in a new battery or charger. For such behavior of the light bulb indicates a problem.

Hello. Asus Notebook…

Hello. Notebook Asus X555L. after replacing the battery (not installed), the battery indicator flashes orange periodically. At the beginning of operation, the indicator is normal, white, not flashing, but after a few hours, flashing appears. Another day may not flash at all, although it works for about the same time (about 12 hours a day). The laptop is powered by the network. After turning off the laptop, the flashing continues until the plug is disconnected from the network. After connecting, the flashing disappears again for several hours or a whole day.

To charge the device, insert the bundled cable into the USB connector of a computer or charger, and connect the other end of the cable to the connector on the bottom of the battery pack. While charging, the indicator will flash slowly. When the charging process is completed, the indicator will turn blue.

When the device was connected to the charger, the consumed current was 0.70A, both with a complete cable and with a high current passing from a mobile phone. Charon Baby can be used while charging, the board supports pastra mode, when tightened, current consumption from the charger stops.

Battery pack dimensions 60 x 45 x 15 mm
Charging current 5 Volt / 0.8 Amp
Charging time about 1 hour
tank capacity 2 milliliters
Evaporator resistance 0.6ohm (mesh), 1.2ohm (vertical coil)

over, one of the “chips” of evaporators is the use of organic cotton, which allows you to maximize the taste of the liquids used. Installation of the vaporizer is extremely simple. just remove the cartridge from the battery pack, pry off the vaporizer and replace the old one with a new one.

If the CHARGE indicator flashes at approximately one second intervals, this indicates that the charging process has been temporarily suspended due to the battery temperature being too high or too low.

  • Check if liquid has entered
  • Check charging and battery
  • Remove memory card and sim card
  • Let your smartphone cool down
  • Force reload
  • Connect to computer
  • Reset to factory settings
  • Update firmware or roll back to the old one

If the LED blinks, the device does not have enough power to turn on. Charge your phone for at least 30 minutes before restarting it. If you don’t see the battery icon or the red LED on after plugging your phone into a power outlet, the problem may be related to the screen.

The main thing is to find the cause of the Xiaomi malfunction. Xiaomi smartphone does not turn on. Reset settings

  • press and hold the power button and volume down until the Mi5 splash screen appears on the display;
  • hold down the volume control key;
  • enter Recovery and find English;
  • press hard reset.

Green and red. The green light is on when the charger is plugged in. The red light is on if the battery is connected to it, that is, it means that the battery is in the process of charging. As soon as the battery is charged, the charger turns off.

If the phone shows that it is charging, but does not charge in the end, it is possible that the controller in the main board has failed in it. In this case, you just have to contact the service center for a complete check of the device and replacement of its boards.

Red color. possible battery failure

This operation is performed at your own peril and risk, the author of the article does not bear any responsibility for the consequences. Recommendation. contact the service center.

Have you changed the charger and the red light is still on? Let’s check the battery then.

This is difficult to do, especially if the design of the Xiaomi model does not imply easy disassembly at home. In this case, there is only one thing left. to give the phone to the service center for diagnostics.

How to fix dead battery in Redmi phones | Red Light Blinking while charging

If your Xiaomi understands, you need to do the following:

  • Open back cover
  • Find the battery cable connected to the board
  • Detach it carefully
  • Connect a known-good charger to your phone and turn it on.
  • If the smartphone is working, connect the battery cable in place
  • In this case, there is a chance that the operation of the battery controller has failed and, when reconnected, it returned to normal
  • If this operation did not help, take the phone to a service center

Why is the charging light on my laptop blinking?

Consider several situations in which the battery charging indicator may blink, including an unusual color:

  • When the laptop is offline, the charging indicator suddenly began to flash red. There is nothing wrong with this. such an alarm indicates that the battery level is approaching zero, and you need to urgently shut down the work or connect the AC adapter to the device.
  • On the laptop, the charging indicator is constantly blinking green (blue, yellow) or another neutral color. This can be observed when the device is closed but not turned off.

This indication is not a cause for concern, but only indicates that the computer is in standby mode.

  • When the laptop is charging, the battery indicator blinks red. If the battery charge light continues to blink red even when connected to the network through a standard charger, this indicates problems. In this case, the malfunction can be hidden not only in the laptop battery, but also in the power supply itself. To determine the exact cause of the breakdown, you should contact the service center.

Attention! Do not try to open and repair the battery yourself. it is not safe! The battery has its own resource (about 1000 charge-discharge cycles), it may be time to replace the battery.

If the device was completely discharged before connecting to the network, then you should wait a few minutes. the problem should disappear.

If the laptop has been charging for a long time, the corresponding indicator is highlighted in the standard color, but the device does not respond in any way to pressing the power button, then there is a high probability that there are problems with the computer’s video card. The exact cause will be established only by diagnostics.

What to do if the battery charging indicator on the laptop is not on

As a rule, in most laptop models, the battery charge indicator does not light up when the device is running on battery power.

This indicator usually blinks when the battery level drops below 10%. When approaching a critical charge level, the indicator starts flashing orange or red.

If, when the AC adapter is connected, the charge indicator does not light up and charging does not take place, you should check the contact in the socket of the laptop’s power supply. it is often broken if the device is handled carelessly. You should also pay attention to the cable. it may be damaged.

If the battery charging indicator on the laptop does not light up, but the device is charging and operating normally, then you should check if the indicator itself is working.

Xiaomi phone flashes red light when charging, what does it mean?

Xiaomi phones have an advantage that makes them pleasant in everyday use. the LED indicator located on the front side. Depending on the application used, or the situation, it flashes in a different color.

If a Telegram application notification arrives, the color is blue, if Viber is purple.

But what does flashing red mean when the battery is charging or the device is turned off?

The red light flashes when the battery is charging.

Month worked fine. Charging is connected, the indicator is red, when the indicator is charged, it turns green. Now there are no problems with the capacity. It works like it worked for 5 hours depending on the load, but recently I noticed strange behavior behind it.

When the battery is somewhat discharged when charging is connected, it glows red and the system shows that the battery is being charged (this is normal, as it was before). When the system shows that the battery is charged, the charge indicator does not glow green, but changes color red / green with a frequency of a second and a half. The instructions for the indicator states describe only three states: Green battery is fully charged Red battery is charging Off Battery is discharging

root@nc10:/sys/class/power_supply/BAT1# cat :0520000052000005200000-1000

In general, I pulled the old and new batteries back and forth, the problem disappeared. Today I’ll put it down, let’s see if it returns at the next charge. If the flashing situation repeats, then I’ll try another charge. R58 stands nearby, charging is similar there, only a little more powerful.

quote: it turned out it was a thermal resistor and there is one more that monitors the power consumed and received.

Laptop Charging Light. On, Blinking, or Off

Most modern laptops use a removable lithium-ion battery that provides an average of 3-5 hours of battery life.

After the battery is discharged, it is enough to connect the AC adapter to the computer to start charging the battery again.

A confirmation of the successful charging of the battery will be the light on the laptop panel, which, as a rule, is a small light bulb with a picture of a battery.

Under normal conditions, this indicator is illuminated in green (blue, yellow) or another neutral color, but at certain moments it may start blinking, change color to red, or even stop burning.

The color indication of the battery, as well as the intensity of its blinking, may differ depending on the brand and model of the laptop, but one thing is intuitively clear. if the charge indicator on the laptop blinks red (or orange), this warns of some kind of problem.

What does a flashing charging light mean? What should I do if the laptop battery indicator does not light up when the AC adapter is connected? The answers to these and other questions. in our review.

Charger out of order

Charging, like any other gadget, can break down and fail. It begins to give a current of the wrong voltage and the wrong power for which the battery is designed. The chip that controls the process of transferring energy from the network to the battery sees this and, using red, signals that if you continue to use a faulty charger, you can permanently damage the phone or battery.

This indicator does not always indicate a breakdown in charging, but it is easier to check this particular version.

To check, connect Xiaomi to another charger, if it was charging, the indicator will not flash red.

All you have to do is buy a new branded Xiaomi charger and continue using your smartphone as usual.

The red indicator light may indicate a deep discharge of the battery.

If Xiaomi was turned off for a long time, a deep discharge of the battery could occur and the remaining energy is not enough to turn on the smartphone, this is indicated by the red color of the indicator.

When you try to turn on the smartphone, nothing happens, only the red light flashes.

In this case, connect your smartphone to the supplied charger for up to 6 hours.

Then try to turn on the phone again, if the problem is in the deep discharge of the battery, it will turn on.

Also, the red color is on during normal battery charging, when the charge is below 10% of the maximum, even if the phone is turned on and working properly.

Broken USB socket contacts

In case of rough and careless handling of the phone, when connecting the USB cable, the internal structure of the USB socket is violated, which leads to short circuits, loss of the necessary contact or physical destruction.

You can check the health of the USB socket at home by connecting a known working and working charger to it.

If at the same time the red indicator goes out, the problem is not in the socket. If not, then there is a possibility that it is out of order, especially if during a visual inspection you have suspicions about its integrity.

It is possible to repair contacts or change the socket in the conditions of a repair service and only if the necessary tools are available. Don’t do it at home.

Red color. possible battery failure

This operation is performed at your own peril and risk, the author of the article does not bear any responsibility for the consequences. Recommendation. contact the service center.

Have you changed the charger and the red light is still on? Let’s check the battery then.

This is difficult to do, especially if the design of the Xiaomi model does not imply easy disassembly at home. In this case, there is only one thing left. to give the phone to the service center for diagnostics.

If your Xiaomi understands, you need to do the following:

  • Open back cover
  • Find the battery cable connected to the board
  • Detach it carefully
  • Connect a known-good charger to your phone and turn it on.
  • If the smartphone is working, connect the battery cable in place
  • In this case, there is a chance that the operation of the battery controller has failed and, when reconnected, it returned to normal
  • If this operation did not help, take the phone to a service center

On a common board, where many microcircuits and controllers are soldered, there is always one that controls the battery charging process.

Due to a manufacturing defect, water entering the smartphone or mechanical impact, this chip may break.

It is impossible to make sure that it is because of him that the red light is on at home, because for this you need to disassemble the phone and test the chip using special equipment. Only after testing can we unequivocally confirm the cause of the breakdown.

Short circuit on the common board of the phone

Short circuit is the most insidious reason for the red indicator on Xiaomi.

At home, it is generally impossible to determine the cause of the short circuit, moreover, it is impossible to determine exactly where it happened and what to do now.

The only advice in this case is to contact the repair shop.

After a short circuit, as a rule, a serious repair is needed with the replacement of a failed element, and this requires a new element, knowledge of how to remove the old one and install a new one, and how to start the phone after the procedure.

We will understand the probable reasons for the inadequate behavior of the phone. If you are not a technical specialist, strictly follow the instructions, going from point to point.

“Landed” battery

If you “killed” the battery to zero, such a reaction of technology is quite understandable. This happens if the forgotten gadget has not been turned on for weeks, or even months or years. There is no energy left in the battery to start. Therefore, the “ON” button does not respond to attempts to revive the gadget. What to do? Do not press the start button every 5 minutes, but leave the phone on charge for a couple of hours. After waiting for a while, hold down the start button for 10-15 seconds (so much. because the system can ignore the standard start attempt with a normal press).

An example from a user who needed information from an old smartphone: a completely discharged HTS Desire 500 “rested” for several years and started up only an hour after the start of charging.

Software failure

Consider this option if the phone suddenly turned off with a full or partially discharged battery. A radical method will help. a “hard reset” of the Android system, which is available in any smartphone on this platform. To start the Hard Reset, put the device into Recovery Mode. by default, this is the simultaneous clamping of three buttons: the volume control, the start key and the Home button (the central button on the front of the panel). If the gadget does not respond to this combination, ask Google what to clamp in your model. Switching to special mode will take 20 seconds of pressing the keys. after that the program menu will start. Select “Reset all software data” (Wipe data / Factory reset), click “Confirm” (Yes. delete all user data) and find the item “Reboot right now” (reboot system now).

After that, important data will be erased and Google account errors are not excluded.

Broken outlet/cord/power supply

No matter how funny, but a faulty outlet can pretty spoil your nerves. To make sure that this is the case, try charging your phone in a different outlet, having previously checked its serviceability with any electrical appliance. Do not rule out a broken USB cable or power supply. Now almost all charges are collapsible. the cord is a block, so try replacing both in turn.

See also  Xiaomi redmi note 10s camera setup

If you bought a new power supply, check the numbers on the information label (note the milliamps). If the numbers are less than on the old original unit, the smartphone or tablet cannot start for this reason.

Important! Check the connector. debris, dust, dirt could accumulate in it and interfere with charging.

Smartphone battery failure

With the release of one-piece phone designs, it is impossible to visually check the health of the battery. This will only be possible for owners of phones with a removable back panel. If the cover on your device comes off, you’re in luck! Remove the panel, remove the battery and inspect. Blisters, scratches, melted or burnt places should alert. If nothing is found, wipe all contacts with a damp cloth for office equipment. if they are perfectly even, it is better not to touch or loosen the terminals. If the battery is non-removable and the case is solid, use an app like AccuBattery to check the battery charge controller, but this method is only correct if the device turns on.

Part damage

  • Breakage or displacement of the start button. If the button is intact, the repair will cost less than 5.
  • Damage to the micro USB cable socket. If you abruptly pull the charging cord out of the socket, the reason is obvious. But repairs are also inexpensive. around 10, depending on the brand, model and year of manufacture of the gadget.
  • “Die” battery. The most unpleasant scenario is that the part cannot be repaired, and you can wait about a month for a new battery on order.
  • The contacts on the inside of the rear panel are damaged. The way out is to contact the service center for diagnostics and damage assessment.

The phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on. what to do

If a cold sweat breaks out from the fact that the smartphone has stopped responding to an attempt to start, you should not be scared ahead of time. It’s only natural to try to fix a nasty problem quickly. In the instructions, you will find out what happened if the red light flashed on the phone when trying to charge the device, and why the smartphone does not start.

Where to run if the gadget could not be launched?

If the smartphone flashes red while charging and does not turn on, and all of the above methods did not help, do not try to fix it yourself. Even the coolest YouTube guides do not guarantee a successful outcome of the repair. let the professionals do it. The only true option is to contact an authorized service center that specializes in repairing devices of the brand you need. Let the services cost more than in the underground passage, but you will be sure of the quality of work.

If the smartphone is under warranty, look for the box, receipt and take it all to the store, let them fix it for free. If the fact of a factory marriage is not established and the breakdown occurred through your fault, you can not count on a freebie, but it’s worth a try.

Our instruction clearly explains what to do and where to turn if the red light flashes while trying to charge the phone and the device cannot be turned on. dare!

We solve the problem

Consider the possible causes of the problem and directly effective solutions. If you are completely unfamiliar with smartphones, follow each instruction in order.

Full discharge

The first case. the phone flashes red due to a completely dead battery. This happens in cases where owners throw a smartphone on the back burner, trying to bring it to its senses after a few weeks / months.

The nature of the failure is simple. the battery has completely lost its energy, which does not even allow the system to start even elementarily. This provokes “indifference” to the power key.

First connect your phone and wait about an hour

The solution does not require complex manipulations from you. just leave your smartphone on charge, literally for a few hours. After that, it is recommended to hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds, as the system may not respond to normal startup attempts.

In my case, a completely dead Samsung Grand Prime smartphone had to hang on charge for about an hour, after which the charge came to life and went on. Therefore, this option should not be ruled out.

Software failure

Important. this method only works when the smartphone is suddenly turned off with a full / partial charge. Let’s use the “Hard Reset” of the Android system (Hard Reset), which is present in any modern smartphone:

  • We put the phone into “Recovery Mode” (Recovery Mode). For some models, the transition method is different, by default, you need to hold down the volume control, power and “Home” buttons (middle on the bottom in the front model). To clarify the exact translation mechanism, you can use the search engine.
  • Hold the combination for up to 20 seconds, after which the device software menu appears.
  • We stop at the item “Reset all software data” (Wipe data / Factory reset).
  • Select the column “Confirm” (Yes delete all user data).
  • After that, we find the item “Reboot right now” (reboot system now).

After a reboot, the problem should be gone. It should be noted that all data will be erased, and there may also be problems logging in due to an unknown Google account error.

Power supply failure

It sounds funny, but sometimes it is a broken outlet that likes to ruffle the nerves of smartphone owners. try connecting the charger to another, after checking the performance with other household appliances.

Another common case is damage to the USB cable or charger unit. Try changing your diet. Pull cable bends, blow out plugs and sockets.

Separately, check the capabilities of the power supply itself; milliamp data should be written on it. Perhaps your unit does not have enough speed to start a smartphone / tablet. By the way, a very common problem on cheap Chinese devices.

Remove any debris, dust and dirt from the connectors

Battery failure

It is possible to check the battery status only on devices with a removable cover. carefully remove it, take out the battery. We examine it for blisters, obvious scratches, melted / burnt elements.

Be sure to check the battery

If everything is fine, we wipe it with a damp cloth, we also do not bypass the terminals (protruding contacts). They must be even, otherwise we do not recommend correcting anything on our own.

XIAOMI REDMI DEAD | Only Notification light blinks | Solved.

In the case of a non-removable battery, you need to use the special applications AccuBattery (checks the battery charge controller) and Battery. But they will be relevant after any inclusion.

Mechanical damage

  • The power button is broken / displaced, which does not allow you to simply give a signal. Such a repair will cost you no more than 4, provided that the “native” button is preserved.
  • A damaged socket for the USB cable may be the result of careless handling, abrupt pulling out of the cable. Repair will not cost a penny either, spend around 6-12 (depending on the model).
  • “Battery death” is one of the most annoying options. Repairing the battery is obviously useless, and if you buy a new one, sometimes you have to wait up to a month for delivery.
  • The contacts inside the back cover are damaged. they are responsible for transmitting power to the elements of the mobile phone. In this case, it is difficult to estimate the cost of repairs, it all depends on the deplorable situation, model, service center.

The phone flashes when charging is connected and does not turn on. such symptoms are quite common, and in different models of smartphones. Naturally, it is not so easy to single out a single reason for this behavior of the device.

Phone flashes while charging and won’t turn on

This can be anything from phone battery problems to a typical system freeze, regardless of the pre-installed OS. All popular smartphone brands are victims of such a failure, including:

The phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on. where to go?

We strongly do not recommend making repairs on your own, disassembling inaccessible elements using guides on the Internet. they are also made by professionals in their field, who should be contacted with a similar problem.

Even better, find a specialized smartphone brand repair department in your city. Yes, repairs from the manufacturer most often come out more expensive, but you get a guarantee of the quality of the work done.

If the phone’s warranty has not yet expired, you can try taking the device to the appropriate electronics store. Naturally, it will be repaired free of charge only in the event of a factory defect, and not intentional damage, but an attempt is not torture.

We hope this material helped you figure out the situation when the phone flashes red when charging and does not turn on. most often our instructions help, the main thing is to do everything right!

Blinking of the red indicator during charging and an unsuccessful attempt to turn it on is a common problem with smartphones, regardless of the brand and model of the gadget. There is no single reason for unusual behavior, and it can be a sign of anything from battery problems to system freezes, no matter what OS is on the phone. Owners of devices from popular brands. Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, iPhone, Meizu and others complain about this problem.

We will understand the probable reasons for the inadequate behavior of the phone. If you are not a technical specialist, strictly follow the instructions, going from point to point.

Planted battery

If you killed the battery to zero, such a reaction of technology is quite understandable. This happens if the forgotten gadget has not been turned on for weeks, or even months or years. There is no energy left in the battery to start. Therefore, the ON button does not respond to attempts to revive the gadget. What to do? Do not press the start button every 5 minutes, but leave the phone on charge for a couple of hours. After waiting for a while, hold down the start button for 10-15 seconds (so much. because the system can ignore the standard start attempt with a normal press).

An example from a user who needed information from an old smartphone: a completely discharged HTS Desire 500 rested for several years and started only an hour after the start of charging.

Software failure

Consider this option if the phone suddenly turned off with a full or partially discharged battery. A radical method will help. a hard reset of the Android system, which is available in any smartphone on this platform. To start the Hard Reset, put the device into Recovery Mode. by default, this is the simultaneous clamping of three buttons: the volume control, the start key and the Home button (the central button on the front of the panel). If the gadget does not respond to this combination, ask Google what to clamp in your model. Switching to special mode will take 20 seconds of pressing the keys. after that the program menu will start. Select the item Reset all software data (Wipe data / Factory reset), click Confirm (Yes. delete all user data) and find the item Reboot right now (reboot system now).

After that, important data will be erased and Google account errors are not excluded.

Broken outlet/cord/power supply

No matter how funny, but a faulty outlet can pretty spoil your nerves. To make sure that this is the case, try charging your phone in a different outlet, having previously checked its serviceability with any electrical appliance. Do not rule out a broken USB cable or power supply. Now almost all charges are collapsible. the cord is a block, so try replacing both in turn.

If you bought a new power supply, check the numbers on the information label (note the milliamps). If the numbers are less than on the old original unit, the smartphone or tablet cannot start for this reason.

Important! Check the connector. debris, dust, dirt could accumulate in it and interfere with charging.

Smartphone battery failure

With the release of one-piece phone designs, it is impossible to visually check the health of the battery. This will only be possible for owners of phones with a removable back panel. If the cover on your device comes off, you’re in luck! Remove the panel, remove the battery and inspect. Blisters, scratches, melted or burnt places should alert. If nothing is found, wipe all contacts with a damp cloth for office equipment. if they are perfectly even, it is better not to touch or loosen the terminals. If the battery is non-removable and the case is solid, use an app like AccuBattery to check the battery charge controller, but this method is only correct if the device turns on.

Part damage

  • Breakage or displacement of the start button. If the button is intact, the repair will cost less than 5.
  • Damage to the micro USB cable socket. If you abruptly pull the charging cord out of the socket, the reason is obvious. But repairs are also inexpensive. around 10, depending on the brand, model and year of manufacture of the gadget.
  • Dead battery. The most unpleasant scenario is that the part cannot be repaired, and you can wait about a month for a new battery on order.
  • The contacts on the inside of the rear panel are damaged. The way out is to contact the service center for diagnostics and damage assessment.

Where to run if the gadget could not be launched?

If the smartphone flashes red while charging and does not turn on, and all of the above methods did not help, do not try to fix it yourself. Even the coolest YouTube guides do not guarantee a successful outcome of the repair. let the professionals do it. The only true option is to contact an authorized service center that specializes in repairing devices of the brand you need. Let the services cost more than in the underground passage, but you will be sure of the quality of work.

If the smartphone is under warranty, look for the box, receipt and take it all to the store, let them fix it for free. If the fact of a factory marriage is not established and the breakdown occurred through your fault, you can not count on a freebie, but it’s worth a try.

If your Xiaomi does not charge or turn on, and the only sign of life is the blinking of the indicator, do not panic. In some cases, the Suomi logo may light up, but after a while the phone simply reboots. This is a fairly common problem with phones of this brand. Fortunately, in some cases, it is possible to cope with it on your own.

You have probably already tried:

What to do if Xiaomi does not charge

As a rule, this behavior of the phone indicates problems with the battery or charge controller. Most likely the phone stopped charging after it completely sat down and turned off. And, if our device had a removable battery, we would use a frog charger and push the battery. But Xiaomi has built-in batteries and, even if you remove the battery, you won’t be able to use the frog because of the connection connector.

In order to get around this problem, you can try to use this trick:

    Remove the back cover of the smartphone. In some models, you will have to unscrew a couple of bottom screws, while others may have a lid on latches (for example, Xiaomi Mi 4). Look for information about disassembling your model on YouTube or on the site ru.ifixit.com

Smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 4 Pro with the back cover removed

If this method did not help, unfortunately, you will not be able to solve the problem on your own and you will have to contact the service center.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A, charging LED flashing, repair(IR)

Today the phone went to zero. The magnetic charger didn’t connect. Or maybe a wire hit. It doesn’t matter, put it on charge. And turned it on, because it was necessary to see who called what.

What shouldn’t have been done. As a result, the battery of the phone generally sat down. And the indicator of the charging port began to flash. Wonderful and wonderful. It came to pass that the phone was covered almost immediately. Useful to search on the Internet, what the hell.

It turned out that the blinking of the indicator indicates a dead battery and the need for repair. But first you need to try to open the device, disconnect the battery, turn on the power, and connect the battery. In this case, we bypass the charge controller and supplies voltage to the battery, while it starts charging.

I read the retold method somewhere in tyrnetiks, did this:

  • I made a mediator from an old plastic card, this is a plate with a pointed corner. Just a knife
  • I took out both sim1 / memory and sim2 slots, and a charging connector (you need a paper clip)
  • Starting from the bottom left corner of the phone snapped off the cover
  • Unscrewed eight screws securing the antenna-casing
  • Removed battery connector
  • connected power
  • Plugged in the battery
  • collected as it was

Wonderful. But I still want to swear at Xiaomi. This glitch has been observed for quite a long time, two more versions ago of this phone model. It consists in the fact that the battery is discharged below a certain value. And at the same time it does not go back to charging.

While writing, the phone recharged a little.

He noted that it would be nice to order a spare battery for the phone

PS. It turned out that it was possible to put on charge for three hours. The battery charge management system gives pulses about once every half a second. And then look at the battery voltage response. If it is less than normal, the cycle repeats. That is, over time, the battery will be charged.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A, charging LED blinking, repair(IR) : 2 Комментарии и мнения владельцев

you know, my charge indicator blinks and does not turn on after a while while it is charging, the indicator turns off at all, probably because it is charged, but I can’t turn on the Xiaomi Redmi c2 model

I had a really difficult situation. In order to bring to life the phone that I forgot to connect to the network so that it does not run out to 0, you need to! (if it is still at 0 and it has been 3 hours without any activity) You need to remove the SIM and memory card slot, carefully remove the cover (I don’t need plastic cards at all, because I have sharp nails, so that’s fine). When the cover is removed, you will see the battery from which the wire comes out directly to the board, which is under the protective cover. It needs to be unscrewed, there are 3 bolts. don’t lose! When unscrewed, you need to carefully pry the connector and disconnect it from the board in this way. I used my nails again. Now we turn on the original charging to the power supply (as usual) The phone will start to vibrate. You need to plant this cable at that moment, as soon as the vibration sounds (I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BE CAREFUL). The phone should turn on. And without turning off the charging, now all you have to do is wait 5 minutes. (Yes, there will be 0 for a long time) Turn on the phone, then turn off the phone and voila, the phone is charging. (And if it’s still 0 on the screen, then just disconnect and reconnect the charger) Now wait until it charges up to 100% And then you can safely collect the phone. (put the cover on the side of the buttons first, and then close it with the right side) Snap all the clips so that the cover is held tightly and carefully insert the SIM and memory card slot. READY!

If the orange indicator is lit steadily. charging is in progress, blinking. charging is over. If the indicator starts flashing orange rapidly, this indicates a battery problem or incorrect battery installation. A flashing light indicates that the battery is bad.

  • Check if liquid has entered
  • Check charging and battery
  • Remove memory card and sim card
  • Let your smartphone cool down
  • Force reload
  • Connect to computer
  • Reset to factory settings
  • Update firmware or roll back to the old one

If the LED blinks, the device does not have enough power to turn on. Charge your phone for at least 30 minutes before restarting it. If you don’t see the battery icon or the red LED on after plugging your phone into a power outlet, the problem may be related to the screen.

To start a hard reset, hold down the power button for 20 seconds. When the Mi Logo appears on the screen, release the button. If nothing happens, try holding the button for 25-30 seconds. If the previous point did not work, you can try to enter fastboot mode.

In the application menu that opens, select Settings. Scroll down in Basic Settings until you reach the Sleep tab. Here you can set the start and end of the time when the indicator glow will be limited. Check Glow/LED.

Turn on your smartphone, go to “Settings”. “System Application”; Scroll the application menu to the item “Phone”; Select the item “Incoming calls”; Disable the proximity sensor (uncheck Turn off the screen automatically when you put the phone to your ear during a call) in this menu.
