PreCentral: Recovery from 0% battery bug

Recommended Posts

No PowerHave you ever been using your webOS phone, browsing the web or playing a game, knowing that you had plenty of battery left and then all of a sudden the battery level drops to 0%?  And then shortly afterwards, the phone shuts down because it thinks there is no battery left even though you know it has plenty of juice in there?  While this bug doesn't hit often (and seemingly most often on a Pre3), it seems to rear its ugly head at the worst possible times just when you need your phone most. The good news is that there is a rather simple fix for this, the bad news is that it may be a bit inconvenient for you.

Actually, the simplest way to fix this is to swap out the battery with a spare, if you have one. If you don't have an extra battery with you, all you need to do is plug in your device to a power source and leave it plugged in for a bit until the device recalibrates the battery to the correct level. Once your phone turns back on, it will still only show a low battery level, typically under 5%. But if you keep the phone charging, it will eventually jump back up to its "correct" levels. It may slowly charge up to 20% after 10 minutes and then jump to 90%, or it may take 20 minutes and then go back to 100%, or it may only take 5 minutes, but eventually it will return to normal. Here's just hoping that the next time this happens you are close enough to a power outlet to charge up your phone, otherwise you will have a nice paperweight that you get to carry around for a bit.

    • Question: How to Install Google Play on webOS (not Google Play Movies and TV)

      Hi guys,   I have received my LG TV with webOS 3.0 today.   I am looking to install a few Apps available on Google Play, however, it seems Google Play is not installed on the webOS software pre-installed. I can only find Google Play Movies and TV, which does not allow me to install 3rd party Apps.   Is there a way to install Google Play app and 3rd party apps ?   Many thanks

    • Question: Switching On/Off Listen mode on latest WebOS

      Hello, I've bought LG OLED65E8 TV and at first launch updated to the newest WebOS version. My original issue is slow Wi-Fi speed on this device and after reading different forum threads here and on reddit looks like it's due to switched on "Listen mode" by default (Screen Share app). Just FYI on the same spot in a room I have 300 Mbps from my macbook device. So my question is how can I switch this "Listen mode" off as with latest update of WebOS there is no such option in Screen Share

    • Question: Videos not showing up/playing on TV

      I'm trying to go all fancy and have my videos on a NAS drive - model: Buffalo LinkStation LS220D - and watch them on my LG Smart TV - model: LG-43UK6200PLA. I've encoded my videos with various programs in the past including DVDFab, but mainly with Handbrake. They appear on the drive and I can play them on my phone or PC, but only about 1/3 show up and play on the TV. I assume it's some kind of incompatible codec - does that sound likely? The problem is they should be basically the same form
