My phone recently started acting funny. It will not turn on unless it is on the charger, and when i put it on the charger it begins to charge and then it turns off and the "samsung" comes up and begins charging again! The process keeps repeating. So when i power it on when i put it on the charger it loads up fine. If i let the phone sit without pressing any buttons for more than 30 seconds it turns itself off and starts repeating the charging for about 1 minute, then turns off and starts charging again. i havent dropped or smashed it or got it wet or anything! Please help!!

Did you drop the phone in water recently? Did you get it wet in the rain? Apart from the likely possibility that the phone is actually damaged/battery damaged, this happens if the power button gets damaged. When you put the phone to charge, in the middle of the night the power button "acted" as if it was pressed and held and the phone turned off. Now when you press the power button, nothing happens because the power button is damaged.
Take it to a repair shop and check the power button for damage. It is replaceable and should not cost a lot.
Does your phone have a removable battery? If yes then you might be in luck. If not, then just take the phone to repair shop and get the power button checked and repaired.
If battery is removable I know that it is possible to turn on the phone this way: 1) Plug in the charger to the phone 2) Remove the battery and insert it immediately. Do this multiple times and the phone should turn on without having to press the power button. Hope that works.
I have the exact same problem. Has it been in contact with water recently? It may be corroded. Check your charger slot for corrosion. That may be the problem. If you see signs of corrosion, your phone is shot. If you don't, take it in to your service provider to have it checked. hope this helps :)
if you can't jump start it in the cold bring battery into warm place and put it on a charger.the cold is an enemy of batteries. but this might happen again battery sounds like its weak, unless car has been sitting in cold for long time.you can get a new battery for about 60 dollars have all your problems solved.
You are reading this wrong...solenoids don't turn. They activate the
starter...that turns. Check your battery connections and
battery/charging system. The starter requires far more power than
anything else in the car, so those items working won't tell you much.
Did you replace battery recently? Sounds like it has bad or wrong battery. If not, it is just dead.
To fix: Power up phone on charger While it is ON, pull the battery Leave out for 1/2 to 3hr - phone still plugged in Replace Battery, phone will power cycle and start charging Leave plugged into charger 10-14hrs Should be good now
ok i had this isssue and figure out what to do. this is all afterm you know that you have a good charger and or battery.
1. completely turn of phone unplug charger.
2. take and put battery back in phone and plug charger.
3. hold hit camera button and power buton. phone will come on if the update was washed it will come straight on. if not you will see the blue LED dont worry yet. just keep holding for 15 sec.
4. while phone blue LED is still on hit and hold (drum Role) menu and track ball for 15 sec.
5. now unplug charger and take out battery. wait 10 sec
6. now put battery back in and leave charger off. and turn on. unless you was in middle of update and hardware failed this WILL bring your G1 back up and running.
hope this helps everyone . MIll$tronics signing out.
