Although this post is old, I am replying for others who might have the same problem. It is not the charger, it IS the battery. Taking the battery out does not work, however, I scraped the contacts a little with my fingernail, and now it is charging,. It even charges on a Motorola charger, so it is not charger. My guess is that the battery is getting ready to die.
Hope this helps someone.
This error happened when I just got my phone. It's been a while since I've seen that error. Thanks for the replies.
BTW., I put up a video on replacing the ribbon cable when it breaks in the Samsung Reclaim. My cable tore after 2 years so if you've had your phone as long as I have then check out the vid. http://youtu.be/d_WcOK4hCDE
This is what I have found with this issue: I have a samsung galaxy and it happened that it was working fine with my battery when recharging it was OK
But after a while the " battery not recognized displayconsult manual" error appeared when trying to charge. I had to use an extra portable charger.
One day my phone was without apparent cause able to recharge again directly on the phone unit itself. I was content my phone was back to normal with this battery error issue.
After weeks of that I dropped the phone to the floor while I was recharging it but I noticed the same error came back again. So I deducted that the fall had caused this issue to return again.
So, I intentinally dropped the phone to the floor again and ..yes! I got it the error was fixed again, but this time around I know exactly what had happened..
