I phone does not recognize chargers... and other things

This morning i have my iphone on the side watching tv, I took it to make a phone call and it felt unusually hot! I looked at the screen and it showed out of service. I tried to charge it but somehow the charger is not detected by the iphone. Also the iphone would turn off and on by itself. I would make phone call, but party on the other line was not able to hear me. I also could hear a crackling sound through the speakers, while the iphone was on. Now it seems i wont be able to charge it, since it looked like the charging port on the iphone does not work.
my iphone is unlocked. if it helps... pls help!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: my enV will not charge!

Hey i think i just figured out the problem to all the port charging issues for the envy and envy 2 phones with verizon. its not the phones, its the charger cord! the part that goes into the phone. it gets pulled out over time from pulling the cord out of the phone all the time. get a pair of pliers. grab the end and push the metal end of the cord against somthing hard, push it back in so it is at the appropriate depth. this should make it charge properly again!

SOURCE: Shows fully charged (plug icon), but isn't taking a charge. A;ready tried reboot/restore.

Get a can of air and blow it into the 30-pin connector and headphone jack to clear the phone of dust and build-up. This should clear up the problem. I learned this from an Apple Store Genius Bar associate.

SOURCE: env2 charger wont fit in the hole and wont charge my phone

The issue is the charger port on the ENV2 breaks fairly easily. The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered under warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars.
2. you can get a new phone. cost ???
3. you can get an external battery charger to charger battery separate from phone. cost about 25 dollars. check out the following link for ones that are available on ebay. LG VX9100 ENV2 External Battery Chargers

My iphone won't charge up at all i put it on charge when its was at 5% on the battery life so i put it on charge tuesday night i awoke wednesday morning it wasn't charged at all the only thing it shows is...

I was very skeptical of this fix when I found it on YouTube, but it's worked twice for me now without any issues.

If low battery shows up, but after being plugged in for hours has no change in battery life do this:

1.Unplug your phone from the charger.
2.Take a hair dryer or heat gun and use the typical back and forth sweeping motion to heat the back and sides of the phone while it is laying on its screen side.

**I keep my hand right next to the phone when doing this so that I can feel how hot my phone is getting.**

Obviously if its too hot you can hold the heat source farther away from the phone or take little breaks giving it time to cool down.

3. Wiggle the dryer back and forth all around (except not on the screen) until you feel a tinge of pain on your hand. Then pause and do it again x2.
4. Plug you phone back in and it should start right up on its own after 2-3 seconds.

If you feel nervous or confused google this hair dryer battery restore trick and watch a video of someone else doing it. Use your best judgement. If it's too hot for you it's probably too hot for your phone.

CAUTION: If you over heat your phone you risk ruining the LCD or worse -the phones brains and guts.

This worked great for me and my friends iPhone's. I hear it works with androids as well. When my iPhone's charging capabilities were restored it held it about the same and before. This is necessary many time after putting your phone in a drawer for a year or letting it discharge 100%

Hi, when i have my iphone 4s on the charger, which i do every night, the alarm doesn't work in the morning, if i take it off the charger it works?

It sounds like your phone is getting stuck in "Dock Mode" where it disables the sound of your phone while docked. I would make sure you have the latest iOS (update your phone through iTunes. And if that doesn't work, I would search the internet for "iphone stuck in dock mode" for some more in depth reasons/solutions to it.

My motorola Blur won't charge, I've tried other chargers and nothing, it will catch a charge for a second and then nothing, now my phone is dead

My Motorola Blur would not charge kept saying Connect Charger. I tried various power connecters including the Original one that came with the phone and the USB to no avail. This morning I took the phone apart and clean it and still would not recognize the charger.

Fix: I lifted up the connector where the charger plugs into on the actual phone and now it is making contact and appears to now be charging my phone.

Sometimes my Iphone will not charge when i connect it to the wall charger. I just bought my iphone a couple of months ago.

If your iPhone is not charging when you plug it into a wall charger or into you computer's usb port, this is a usb connectivity issue and the connection just needs to be reset. All that needs to be done is plug the iPhone's cable into the phone but don't plug into the computer yet. Hold the phone's select button (the round button with the square) down for about 30 seconds or until the apple appears on the screen. your phone will reload and reset the connection and the computer should recognize the device. Allow the phone to charge for at least 30 minutes before unplugging.

Iphone won't take a charge

I've looked for others with the same problem as you, and I haven't found anything.
I have a few things for you to try, they're rather simple so you may have already thought of them.
First thought, try a different iPhone to USB2 cord.
Try a different type of iPhone charging unit, i.e., car charger, wall charger, etc... Best way to gain access to the more options would be at an Apple Retail store, at least you'll know that the cord you're trying definitely does work.
If the iPhone does connect to your computer, but won't sync or charge, see if you can get it to "Restore".
If you can't get it to recognize your iPhone at all, take it to an Apple Retail store and have them play with it at the Genius Bar.
If you're feeling DIY, try cleaning the contacts on both your iPhone and its cord with some denatured alcohol on a Q-Tip.
If you would like to phone or email me, please feel free. Dan Crowley, 919.280.3101
