Hi,

Blinking red light indicates low battery (when phone is not connected to charge). It should turn to a steady red light when charging. Is it steady when you have connected the charger?

If not, you probably have a faulty battery or faulty charging circuit in the phone.

If so, how long have you left it on charge? Leave it on charge for 1-2 hours and see if it starts to charge.

(I suggest this because I had a android phone with a completely flat battery which initially did not respond to the charger, so with nothing to lose I left it on charge, after 1.5hrs it suddenly kicked into life and started charging and subsequently took another 3 hours to fully charge - and has been good for over 12 months now charging normally)

If it does not respond at all after you have tried the above you probably have a faulty battery or faulty charging circuit in the phone. Check your warranty details and if still valid contact the maker.

My phone not used to get charged n used to show red light instead. Also its back button not worked. I put my phone in the freezer for 2 hours n repeated this action 3 times. After a month the charging came to be normal. Also the back button not worked n I found out that it was because of the water which had entered the screen of the phone. I installed back button from play store n after few days the phones back button started working itself. Now is my phone working perfectly n it does't have any defect. But I'm sure that the back button will be not functioning if the rain hit my phone screen. I have to save it from water because it takes almost a week untill its back button gets normal. My phone is 4 yrs old n is like a friend to me. Not wanna change it.

Basically I have found the best solution to such a problem, all you have do is unplug from charge, turn on the phone, when the Huawei logo shows up on boot, plug the charger in on that stage, once turned on it mostly starts charging normally.

If unsuccessful, redo the same steps after the phone shuts down automatically. Once you get into the timing, it will work every time(as it has with mine). Even tho it is becoming an unecessary hassle.

This method works, I certify it with 100%

I am not sure why this works, but it does. My phone now is a couple of years old and has only just started doing this...I guess time for a new phone

Hi @Alun Evans,

It may be time for a new battery. Even rechargeable batteries have a life span. If you feel so inclined here is a link that shows how to replace the battery. It also has details of which battery to buy. This should also be printed on the battery.

All this is of course if you have a Huawei P8 Lite!

when I plug my huawei p8 lite for charge, it show me its charging, but slowly it starts to loose charge. what should I do??

by

Hi @ imtiyaz nabil,

Have you tried a different compatible charger?

Are you charging it and using it at the same time when this happens? If so try fully charging it with the phone off and then see how long the battery lasts.

What do you mean that it starts to lose its' charge? Do you mean that this happens when it is charging?

How old is the phone?

Even rechargeable batteries have a life span. if it is 2 years or more then perhaps you should consider getting a new battery installed.

Hi folks,

I had the same “blinking red light during charging” symptoms on my Huawei P8 Lite with a completely flat (0%) battery. I guess this happens because Android requires a minimum level of power (2-4%, below which the phone automatically turns off) in order to control the charging process. What I’ve tried and helped was leaving the phone on charger for cca. 10 mins and after that I performed hard reset (pressing and holding Volume UP + Power keys simultaneously - the method may vary for other phones), just like when you want to wipe cache data. And voila, the phone started to boot and charge normally.

Brilliant I bought an huawei phone from a repair shop!! after i jumped in a hottub pissedup and forgetting my phone was in my pocket, I tried to have it fixed but it was unfixable!! So I bought another streight there and then, got it home and it wouldn't charge. Tried everything and the hard reset was the last thing I tried and it worked I had a feeling it was because the phone was in there for a few months and needed a good kick to start the charging process,.

Unplug the charger 'cube' from the receptacle and plug it back in to a known good outlet. Simple as that (this is what worked for me). Went from not charging and displaying a low battery symbol on the display when I pressed the on button to charging as soon as I plugged the 'brick' back in. East fix!

try a charger with a lower ampier output rating. this will result in a slow charge.

My phone has found a charging problem. From a week now but 2 times it was charged when I froze the phone in could n then put it in charge. Plz freez it for 15-30 min not more. But now it gets charge very slowly n consumes charge when I use it while charging. But I know the phone is used almost 4 yrs now so I ordered a budget phone 'd come soon. Still I won't through it away but watch utube instead of using the new phone. Hope it'll help somehow…
