have been using the G4 for about 3 months. Every time I want to charge the receiver I plug it into the wall and nothing happens. I have waited up to 1 minute and still no lightening bolt. What I need to do is unplug it and immediately plug it back into the wall and only then does it begin to charge. I have to do this every single time. Anyone else have this experience?

That is what happens to me also, but I don't think that it did when I first got the system.
I did read of someone whose contacts for the battery charging got pushed into the Dex and it wouldn't charge. I don't know if that is what happening with mine, but so far I've been able to finally get it to charge.

I am also having a similar experience with mine. Wiggling the dongle at the unit seems to help.

Me too, but like Parrformance mentioned I just unplug it and plug it in again and it usually does the trick. Also, make sure you keep the closure closed when not charging. Dust and debris is a huge culprit of that.

It is so dumb the way they use a non-stamdard charge system. Why don't they just use a standard USB charger like a cell phone. So stupid just to create inconvenience for the sake of making a few more dollars.

Keep in mind, everything comes down to dollars and cents. All decisions(design, manufacturing, marketing, etc.)are made to maximize profit.

No problems yet for me, other than forgetting to charge the darn thing. The system 7 was much more persistent in reminding me. I keep my charger at home, so of course my G4 died when I was out for an entire day. After reading a prior post, I am very careful with the sliding cover (some have broken off) and I also make sure I close it after charging.
