Charging plug problem

I am not able to plug in the charger into the phone. I can only get the charger plug half way into the phone. It was always tricky to do and now it is impossible. This is a really frustrating problem; please help. Thanks.

After connecting the charger cord and plugging it into the wall socket, is the iPhone to be turned off or turned on?

If you turn it off, it will charge faster. I've done both. This morning my charge was very low. Then I noticed the plug became out of the socket. Try it both ways,see what happens. If you are charging with it on, have you closed all your apps? Double press the on/off button on the bottom front. Any open apps will appear half size. Place your finger on the app, and slide it UP and "OFF" the unit. Turn it off, try charging. Be sure your plugs are all the way in. If you try it turned off, the unit will briefly show your current charge, then turn itself off.

My Samsung s5 is not charging

try this


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.
  • 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.

When i plug my charger in i have to move it around for it to start charging and if i move my phone it quits charging its not the chargers i have tired im thinking it my phone. what do i do?

The charging socket on you phone needs to be resoldered, OR the plug on the charging adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
To determine which is faulty, use a different charger and plug it into your phone and move the charging plug to see if the it quits charging. If it quits charging then the charging socket on the phone needs fixing (re-soldering).

My phone wont charge i always have to put it in a different position too get it too charge wats wrong with it?

Hi, there are two things you will need to test for ,

The charger and the charging port.

The charger of the phone might not be contacting properly causes it to fail or loose contact, that might be the reason it needs to be position properly before it charges.

You can use another charger to see how firm it will on another phone, so that you can be able to know if you will need to replace the charger with another one.

The charger port is where you plug in the charger to the phone for the phone to be able to charge.
Sometimes if the charging port is weak,itmight not be able to hold the charger properly,it will be failing contact.

Also you can use another charger to test with your phone and see how firm it holds on the phone and if it will charge the phone without failing.

I guess when you test for the charger and the charging port, problem will be solved.

Feel free to pass your comment.

Thanks for using fixya....

Does leaving a cell phone charger plugged in to an outlet at home,without having the phone charging in it,drain energy from your home?

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.
