Yes. You are right. Here energy is not the criteria. It is always safe to unplug the charger (when not in use) to prevent the damage of a cell phone due to accidental over load of electricity or short circuits. Moreover Chargers do draw power when plugged in, whether or not a device is actually being charged.
If the charger is plugged in someplace easy to access, like right by where you keep your phone, you should unplug it. But if it would be difficult to have to plug it in every time you need to use it, you'll be fine just leaving it plugged in..and.It still uses energy even when not charging. Any electronic device plugged in a socket uses energy whether it is in use or not.

How can I retrieve contact numbers from my fone that has discharged and wont charge


My phone died and now won't power on or charge. Here's how to fix it. Did your mobile phones battery drain all the way to zero and now your device is completely dead, not powering on or not even letting you charge it? This article will go through some tips on how you might be able to revive your dead phone.
If your cell phone is a smartphone then this is a reasonably common issue. It used to be a general practice to run older batteries to zero battery life before charging them back up to full again but try not to do that on the new smart phones, they use lithium-ion batteries which discharging 100% is a major concern and isn't good for the health of the battery.

If your battery has drained to zero and now the phone won't respond then try this

Pull the battery Start out by pulling the battery out of the phone for a few minutes then put the battery back into the phone, put the phone all back together and then plug it into your ORIGINAL charger that came with the phone. Make sure that you use the original charger that came with the phone. If you don't have the original charger then make sure that your charger is a manufacturer approved charger. If your battery is built into the phone and you cannot remove the battery from your smartphone then try to perform a simulated battery pull. Many phones have a method to restart the device, usually by holding down specific buttons or keys on the device. Much like the Motorola Atrix HD simulated battery pull or the Sony Experia simulated battery pull where you hold the volume down key and power key simultaneously while the phone is powered off.
Check the outlet Sometimes we can be too close to an issue and can overlook something as simple as a wall outlet attached to a light switch that's turned off. If the light switch is designed for turning off and on a light and the switch is off then there is no power coming from the outlet and obviously your device isn't going to charge.
Try a different outlet This can go hand in hand with the above suggestion. Try a different outlet to make sure it's not a power socket issue.
Try using a computer or car charger Using a computer or car charger instead of a wall charger can sometimes put a quick charge on your battery and get it to respond as well. Keep charging it If you have tried these methods and your phone isn't responsive due to its battery being drained 100% then it can be difficult to get your phone to charge again. Try charging it for at LEAST a couple hours on an outlet you know to be working, even all night if possible. Lithium ion batteries can take a while to get to charge again if drained all the way. So try charging it for a while, You might need a new battery If you try these tips and suggestions or have tried all these things already and there is still no response, and your phone is completely dead and will not recognize a charger then you might need to try another battery.
Try a different charger If you have tried a different battery then make sure you try your original charger first, as mentioned above. If there is no response then it might not be your battery but your charger that has malfunctioned and might need replacing. If you have any spare chargers try those to see if you can get a charge out of your phone. Replace the device If you have tried a different battery and a different charger and your phone is still little more than a paper weight then you should start reviewing your phone replacement

Why wont my motorola photon q phone charge or power up...no green light comes on at all


Your charge cord may fit, but it may not be configured to your phone. I just bought a new Nexus phone that has the same charge port as my older Galaxy 4s phone. The Nexus charge plug fits into the Galaxy 4s charge port with no problems but does not charge after plugged into outlet. But the older charge cord will work with the new Nexus charging wise but data transfer will not work. So you may have a charge cord that plugs into phone, but may be configured differently due to phone manufacturer. Hope this helps.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 - NO POWER, BATTERY, CHARGING AND CHARGER ISSUES alltabshighlighted.jpg

No power, battery, charging and charger issues

This guide contains troubleshooting steps and advice to help resolve issues you may experience when attempting to charge the handset.
After performing each step, please test to see if the issue is resolved.
Symptoms:
  • Battery not charging
  • Battery is not lasting long
  • Phone won't charge
  • Charging error
  • Failure to charge
  • Display remains black or blank
  • No power
  • Boot failure
  • Overheating
Troubleshooting Questions
  • Are you using the correct equipment?Make sure you are using an approved Samsung wall charger and USB charging cable. Other brands of charging accessories may have different voltage parameters and could cause charging issues when used with Samsung devices.
  • Have you charged your phone for longer than 30min? Leave your phone plugged in to the charger for about 30min without powering on. In some cases, it may take slightly longer for your phone to charge.
  • Is the battery icon displayed on the screen when charging? After charging your phone for a little while you should get a battery charging icon appear on the screen which will indicate that your battery is charging properly.
    If the charging icon appears, leave your phone for a little longer before you try to switch your phone on.
    If however, the screen is blank and nothing is displayed, follow the below troubleshooting steps.
  • Is the charging cable plugged into a USB port? Some charging cables can disconnect from the wall outlet adapter and plug directly into a USB port. However, when plugged into a USB port, the charging process is much slower due to the limited power output of USB ports. Instead, plug the device directly into a wall outlet to speed up the charging process.
  • Is the outlet faulty? Try a different outlet or check for a switch connected to the outlet. If possible, try powering a different device on the same outlet.
  • Does another USB cable, or wall charger work? Charging issues can occur if either the battery or charging cable is damaged. Verify that the charging contacts are clean. If necessary, clean the contacts using a cotton swab and rubbing on isopropyl alcohol.
    If possible, test the charging cable by plugging it into another device and seeing if the device charges. Alternatively, try charging the device with a different cable. This may mean changing out the cable or the adapter on two-piece chargers.
    If charging through a car charging kit, ensure that the car engine is running, and if possible try to charge other devices using other cables, through the same car kit. If none will charge, then it is likely there is a fault with the car charging kit. It is recommended to continue to cross-test devices, cables, and car kits until the problem device can be identified.
    If the device charges when using a different USB cable or wall charger, the issue most likely lies with the charging accessory. In this case, follow the approved charger repair / replacement process.
    Also, if the charger is connected via an extension or other multi-socket adapter, remove this and plug the charger directly into the wall-mounted socket. This will eliminate the possibility of a fault with the adapter.
    If you are still unable to charge your device, continue to the next step.
  • Has the phone experienced any shock or exposure to water? Accidental physical shock to a handset can sometimes cause problems to arise with battery or charger, as these components contain delicate parts, particularly. Damage can occur either to the component itself, or to the component's connection to the motherboard.
    Water exposure can also lead to damage of these components, however due to the slow way in which this type of damage can manifest itself, the cause may not always be readily obvious.
    With any physical damage of this nature, the only recourse is to contact the device manufacturer, and follow their approved repair or replacement process.

How to troubleshoot my drain iphone4


If the battery is drained on your iPhone 4, you really need to wait longer before it charges. Make sure you charge it with a wall charger because it charges faster than when plugged in on your computer. Also, if you have an iPad charger, it would be better since it has higher voltage and will give your phone more juice faster.

Just leave it for a while and it will boot in itself once it got the right amount of power. You may also try hard reset by pressing home button and sleep button simultaneously until you see the apple logo.

Unable to plug the charger as there is no other wire with it


I am assuming its the same as the i9 with a usb cable which plugs into the computer to charge or a power socket for the wall charge. This should have been sent when you bought the phone, check the website you got the phone from and email asking where it is. Other wise you can buy the plug on ebay(Australia) for $2.53 free postage from store Hong Kong Outlets they have plugs for 5 different countries.
Hope this helps.

you have done well in troubleshooting it. if you have tried another charger on it and its not charging, then you have to replace the charging port. if you are good opening phones, then replacing the charging port will not be a problem. the chrging port is usually not screwed, it is just fixed to the board by contacts. look for the replacement part and change it. other wise, take it to a phone technician with the new charging port and replace it. good luck!

Suspect Battery is Dead But Not Completely Certain


In my 30+ years of servicing battery operated devices, I have to tell you that 95% of the time, it's a bad battery.

Question1 : I agree that it should operate on outlet power. Perhaps the battery has a shorted cell and is eating up all of the charger's available current. Chargers have a limited amount of capacity.

Question2: Charge the battery then remove it from the phone. It should be slightly warm to the touch if you touch it within a few minutes of completion. If you have access to a DC Voltmeter, let the battery sit for a couple hours and check the voltage. It should be at least (usually higher) what is written on it. Other than that, replacing it is the only other way.

Hope that helps...

Env help plz


The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.
