I'm modding a battery-free android phone but I have some problem ? Answered


Sorry for my bad English :)

I have an old Android phone and I want to use it without battery inside, so I do a little mod based on diagram in the following picture. Everything works fine but I have some problem, when I unplug the 5v adapter from wall socket and plug it back in, I can't turn on the phone using phone's power button. Only when I disconnect the battery circuit from the phone and reconnect can I turn it on using power button. What's wrong here ? Sometime I need to unplug the adapter but i don't want to disconnect the battery circuit from the phone :(

Thanks for your help :)

Wall-Wort Adapter voltage starts near zero and climbs slowly when plugged into the outlet.

Your phone expects the battery at near full voltage when connected.

Last easy thing to try, is adding an electrolytic capacitor to ""beef up" that supply with the switch and cap physically close to the phone.

I might also try to RUN using a battery as a reference on the other items.

Phones are usually 3.7V, your 5V must be messing it around requiring a hard reset.

I use a 1N4007, a battery circuit to set it 3.7v - 4.3v and it works fine :D
