If it can't be charged normally, please try the following tricks:

​​● Plug in and out the Mi Band sensor from charging cord several times or shake it in a gently way until it can be detected.

● Test whether the charge contact point is good, if oxidized, you need to scrape it with a blade.

● Verify the cable and charging interface are good, USB interface or other power equipment are working in normal power supply conditions, try to replace the USB charging cord, or the USB interface of the power supply equipment.

● Try to charge it with another charger.

● On charge for the first time out of the box? Use your USB charging adapter, connect directly to the power socket, charge more than 3 hours and then press the power button to boot.

​● If the contact point, charging cable and interfaces are in place but still cannot be charged, the battery is probably faulty, please contact after-sales service to solve the problem.
