    Atrix HD Not Powering On

    Background: Daughters Motorola Atrix HD (phone is 7 months old) phone ended up with broken Glass. But it was still working for about a month. Now it will not power on. When plugging it in the Green light appears for about 10 seconds then it goes out. Have tried different battery pull options of the power button & the Volume buttons but no change. I have since replaced the glass & the LCD screen. The phone still is not powering on. 10 Seconds of green then the light goes out. Have also been using the charger that came with the phone when trying to charge the phone.

    Any suggestion or ideas to fix this phone.

    Sorry to hear about your phone. Is there any way that you can try to charge the battery with an external charger, or get ahold of a battery that has already been charged?

    I have no way of charging the Battery exterally. How might I do this? I do have a Volt meter so I could check to see if the battery is carrying any kind of Charge. I could stop at the AT&T store to see if they can check the battery or have a spare. Problem is you need to take the phone apart to get the battery out. Which I have done when replacing the glass & LCD.
    One thing I was thinking of doing is to remove the 2 screws to the battery connection & with the battery disconnected plug the phone in. Then unplug the phone & reconnect the battery. Then try charging it again.

    I seem to remember reading the the Atrix has the same battery as the Droid X, so if you know someone with that phone, you could try using their external charger to charge yours. Additionally, there is a universal external battery charger on the market - saw a picture and a review of it on one of the forums I moderate - but I can't remember the name of it. It would fit almost any cell phone battery made, and that impressed me.

    EDIT: If you're interested in going that route, see this - https://www.google.com/#q=universal+...ger+cell+phone
