Phone won't power up or charge
Hi, a buddy of mine recently gave me his old Moto Z force, and i'm hoping to fix it up and use it. The issue is that the phone won't charge or turn on at all. No charging lights when plugged in. I tried the charger in his moto and it worked fine, so no issues with the charger. Apparently before the phone broke, when he would charge it, the battery would get very hot, but one day it just quit on him. He brought it into Verizon, and they told him that they thought that it was a battery issue, and that the battery needs replacing. I just want to see what people's experience is with this issue. I'm just hoping it was just a battery issue and nothing too major. but the phone was free, so i'm not afraid to throw money at it to fix it. Thanks a ton!!
Bu iyi bir soru mu?

Over 20 years’ experience with Motorola phones, and this is the first time I have ever seen a Motorola phone do anything like this!
* Droid Moto Z Force (2) shows a charge under 15% (dropping precipitously from charge numbers in the 30%+ range a few minutes earlier).
* Then, when plugged into the (factory-provided) turbo charger it shows a “lightning bolt” in the upper border of the screen, supposedly indicating that it is plugged-in and receiving a charge.
* Then, this ($700.00) phone — which has been “babied” and doesn’t have a nick or a scratch on it — CONTINUES to DISCHARGE while plugged-in!
Reboots (first cold and then warm) did not improve this problem — eventually, unplugging and re-plugging the USB-C cable several times did rectify it — for now, that is.
I suppose I am “lucky” to only be experiencing this problem after about 3 years of owning and using the phone — but this problem speaks to the UTTER FAILURE of Motorola to maintain their previously-excellent manufacturing standards.
(As another person posting here wondered, “intentional?”)
I will buy a newer/better cable first and try that. If that fails, I’ll find a capable independent phone repair shop to replace the battery and check the connectors (as indicated in various solutions posted here) — but I think THIS IS THE LAST MOTOROLA PHONE I’LL EVER BUY.
I have gone the route of replacing a battery and screen on a previous (Motorola Razr Maxx) cell phone.
Took two attempts to get all of the connections right and the unit fully-operational -- scared to DEATH that I would ruin the unit!
Going to a "pro" this time b/c I do not want to experience that fear again.
