my galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it

Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not holding....is it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

phone not charging ways to fix

Your phone could fail to charge for a number of reasons. 1. Check all connections -- charger to phone, battery within phone (did you drop it recently?) charger to wall socket, etc. Make sure connections are clean and well-fitting. 2. Make sure your battery is IN your phone, or that the back plate isn't loose letting the battery wiggle. 3. Has the phone been damaged by electricity or water? How old is the battery? If all else fails, take the phone to a battery store. They can test the battery and tell you whether the battery has failed, and sell you a new one that sshould charge, or whether the phone is kaput.

i am using sony ericsson z550i it is not getting charge can u plzzz give me a solution

first of all try cleaning the pins of your charger and mobile charging socket with petrol or kerosine oil.
then see if it works,
if still the problem persist, then their may be the fault in your charger or mobile charging socket. Or electric socket where you put your charger for charging!
try charging your mobile by putting your charger in different switch board, if still it wont work, then try charging your mobile with different charger, if your mobile is getting charge, then get sure that problem is in your charger,
its time to buy a new charger.
original charges cost=900
duplicate charges cost=100
