Preview Build Stops Windows 10 Mobile Charging
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
There are always risk with upgrading your software, even more so with software that is still in a testing phase. We’ve all been through the pain of updating your computer and having it stop working, now it would seem that some users of the latest build for Windows 10 Mobile are experiencing the same thing.
Despite the single known issue, some users have been reporting that the Lumia 550 has a whole other problem. The error is that it doesn’t pick up when it’s charging, meaning your battery can only go one way, down.
Neowin reports that in their own testing they were not only left unable to charge their phone but it was also no longer recognised when it was plugged into a PC, meaning the default response of using Windows Device Recovery Tool’s was impossible.
There is a major problem with this, if you want to update your phone you require at least 50% battery, so once you fall beneath that not only can you not charge your phone but when a fix comes out, you won’t be able to update and get it.
While there are always problems with the “fast ring”, as Microsoft calls their initial group of testers for new builders, this problem will possibly cause some people to lose their phones altogether, a rather serious problem.
