Charging Issues?

by sdgmcdon    Jul 22, 2008, 1:26 PM

Anyone else experiencing charging problems with their 800w? I thought my car charger was defective or the wrong one (bought from Sprint store, but it wasn't the one that was suppose to be for 800w, just the one they had that they said worked with it). Basically it will charge while it's on, when the screen goes dark (sleep mode, whatever) then it stops charging. Within a minute or two the screen will come on again, but just a white screen, it will charge then a minute or two later the screen is off again and the unit is not charging.

Again, I thought this might be the car charger until I noticed it doing this when plugged in at my desk.

I charge it overnight in a drawer in my nightstand and I'm assuming since it does this in the car and on my desk, it likely does it over night as well, but since thats like 6+ hours it manages to get a full charge.

It's not a massive problem for me, just an annoyance but I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing this issue and thus if it's a defective unit or just a model "feature" (not!)...?

The only programs I'm running in addition to standard software on it is "tman" task manager and my GE Security Supra eKey software I use to open lockboxes on homes (Realtor)...
