Removing battery from Neo makes nasty noise

If I remove the battery from the Neo while USB cable is still plugged in it
makes a very nasty whining noise. Sounds very unhealthy.

This happened to me, too.
The kernel needs to be booted for this effect to appear, though. I tried it in
the bootloader and the phone just turned off.

For me the phone wasnt booted, battery was dead and I was swapping it for a
charged one.

For me it also happened when I plugged in USB when no battery was in the device.
Even when I unplugged and plugged USB in again. After unplugging again and
inserting the battery, plugging in USB was normal.

It seems nobody talked about the smell. There is a burning smell together with
the sound. Scary..

I experienced this to, the Neo's battery was dead (or atleast it didn't boot
:-), not sure that battery was drained) so I plugged in the USB to charge it and
noticed the whining/clicking noise. Note that the battery was plugged in when I
heard the noise. Unplugging the USB stopped the noise. After removing the
battery and immediately inserting it again before plugging in the USB made the
noise disappear. AFAICC the battery wasn't loose in any way, but I'm not
completely sure...

I also accidentally inserted the USB plug when the battery was gone, and got the
same noise.

Is this still reproducible with GTA-02 hardware?

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by graeme@…

No, GTA02 runs fine with no battery.

I'm going through cleaning out older bugs that we don't really intend to target, as the amount of open bugs has gotten crazy and we can't see the wood from the trees. Please accept my apologies.
