Hmm, this is a problem that even i am facing

Is your mobile rooted ?

Try connecting it to different wall socket , chrage with different PC usb CABLES

See if you find the same problem

Re: charging problem :(

The problem is because we both have a rooted mobile. :smileywink:

If you will reinstall your phone's software this problem will vanish. But as soon as you root your mobile, you will start facing this problem

No need to test it with different cables as i tested it with 4-5 cables and problem remained

Re: charging problem :(

Most likely yess... it's quite risky

And there is no way on a rooted mobile...

I will try to find a cause though

Move it to system/ Bin, copy and replace the older one

And yeah remember to change the permissions as

Re: charging problem :(

I had the same problem and after researching I found similar problem faced by an Xperia Mini user.  He got his mobile repaired by replacing the "charger" file under system/bin/ and so did I replace the file "charger" from Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and lol it worked!!  Amazingly it helped coz I was going to repair through PCC.  Still waiting for file named "charger" from Xperia Arc coz I don't want to use this Xperia Mini file and informed Nabeel who shall help me for sure :smileyhappy:  Thanks Nabeel! You doing Great Job!!

Re: charging problem :(

Also to let you know.  Setting permissions for file named "charger" was not required !
