    Default Droid Razr Maxx wont turn on!!!

    I just got off of work and my phone was at a 60% charge, and went to lay on my bed and fell asleep, I woke up around 4 am to find my phone turned off.. and not turning back on. Please help!!!! When I plugged it into the charger, it did nothing, usually phones turn on and the big red "M" pops up, but the phone doesn't even acknowledge that it is charging.I just got this phone a few days ago. PLEASE HELP MEE!!!

    Pull the battery for a few minutes. Then try again.

    Do you mean "pull" as in take the battery out, if so, The battery can't be taken out of the Razr Maxx.

    Do you have any other suggestions? Other than calling Verizon?

    Nevermind! Problem solved! I guess since the battery is so big, it take so long to re-charge. The battery was just COMPLETELY drained. Sorry for wasting your time, lol.

    remember to use the charger that came with the Maxx. some chargers do not have enough mA or high enough voltage. also yes it does take a few minutes to register. i would be more concerned why your battery went from 60% to zero overnight...

    My battery did the same thing the other night.... I woke up to a 0% battery and was freaked when it wouldn't turn on.

    I did some playing around with the usb charging options and noticed that when I have my phone hooked up to my computer to "charge", it only charges when it is "connected as a mass storage." If you set it to "media device" or "camera", it doesn't charge.

    Not sure if this is true across the board but that's what I noticed about mine.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, I never let my phone hit 0% for that exact same reason (on purpose at least)..

    Besides that, how did your phone go from 60% to 0% from the time you went to bed? I assume you went to bed at a "1st shift" time (somewhere between 9pm and midnight)? Were you streaming music on it when you fell asleep?

    I too am having the same problem. Charged it overnite when my battery was at 40% and this morning it was at 20%. I thought maybe the cord fell out and I stuck it on my car charger. It showed that it was connected ( the little battery increasing on the top right ) but after a couple of hours Im now at 5 %. Its dead now and doesnt even register that its plugged in. NO LIGHTS . I pulled my battery out ( not totally of course ) and put it back and Ive had it on a charger for a few hours now. Still I cant turn it on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would take it to a Verizon store but I about 130 miles from the nearest one.

    If it's dead when you plug it in it has to charge to 5 percent before it will turn on. Just keep holding the power button until it starts. It always takes longer when it's plugged in.

    Just leave it on the charger. It won't turn on until it gets to 5 percent. It's a big battery it takes a while to charge

    I was trying not to confuse the OP. A "puter" has a low mA output. What he needs is a high output to get a "jump start" on his battery. Sure it will charge it. Just not nearly as fast.

    Can you try to reword that? I'm having a difficult time understanding what you were trying to say.

    Actually you CAN take out the battery on both the Razr and Razr max. Just remove the small orange cover at the bottom of the battery, find small screw driver that will fit the screws, and carefully remove the ribbon cable and battery. Cheers!

    Use the charger that came with your phone. Leave it on the charge for 1 hour and then check it. See what it says.

    I think i know what he is saying, i'm getting the same thing. I plug in my phone and it thinks the battery charge is too low to start so it brings up the battery icon to show it charging at 0% within a few seconds its at 5% ... wait another min and it jumps to 100% (its been charging for a day now) so I think it is ready to turn on but when i try to turn it on it goes through the boot cycle and can't remember that it is charged, and goes back to 0% ... if i unplug it, it seems to have no power at all. My guess is the battery died (not from letting it get too low because it was on the charger at about 30% and the next morning had shut down).
