Do you have insurance? If so, take it to Verizon and see if you can get a new phone.

Samsung corby not charging GT s3850


Are you very sure it is the right charger? I have hooked my phone up to charge before, not realizing that the charger I had used was for something else. Many of the chargers these days look very similar, sometimes exactly the same. However the output on the other charger is quite often not right. This will cause your phone to not be charged.

My HTC keeps freezing and then shuts off and it won't turn .. I have to plug it in my charger and I'm about five minutes it turns on


I would delete any live widgits off your desktops such as facebook or myspace etc. It constantly drains the battery and working with phones I have had it actually drain the battery faster than it can charge. If the charge is not the problem I would, while the phone is turned on, remove the battery...this is a soft reset and can fix most issues with freezing.

My SCH-a930 won't charge. I still have battery life, and the phone works fine, but the phone won't charge. I have tried multiple wall outlets. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!


Hi,
Please, try using another charger with the phone.
If the problem continues, get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and bring the charging port out. The charging port is at the tail end of the phone.
Clean the surface of the panel where the charging port contact the panel with a spirit and allow it to dry for 30 minute. Couple back the phone and i am sure the charging phone will work fine.
Regards

Had phone almost a year, no problems. Couldn't get it to turn off, so removed battery, now won't go on, tried all advise, cept battery out for 6 hours, will leave it out, but have you heard of this? Can...


Hi,

It could be that moisture got into the battery terminals. Take a Qtip and wipe the battery terminals inside the phone and also on your battery.

Then try installing the battery again and then hook up the AC charger. Try booting up. I had a cell phone once, it was a Nokia and it did something similar. I had plugged the car charger in while I was in the car and I heard a noise like it shorted. I took the phone to trade it in when I purchased a new Nokia and I noticed that the store clerk had taken my phone that would not boot up and hooked it to an AC charger. It powered up. I still purchased the new phone, but try the AC charger and see what happens. If it powers up, it might be the battery. Let the battery charge for about 4 hours, don't keep it charged overnight. Overnight charging will ruin the battery. If the phone still doesn't work, I'd say bring it in and see if you can get it looked at.

Buzzing Noise When trying to charge


it means your battery is too discharged to charge. when you plug the phone in, it doesn't use the AC power right away, it uses the battery to jump start it until the red lights come on the front, then it will switch to the AC power. try this. turn on the phone with out it plugged in and as soon as those front lights come on, plug the charger in. if the battery is not too discharged i.e. it didn't power down while you were talking to it, it should work. I went through three batteries until i figured it out

Wont charge and makes noises


First get rubbing alcohol (higher % the better) and brush both ports on the phone and the charger. Blow dry it for a minute or so and plug in.

If still no-go, then try it with another charger....if the same result, the phone has a bad charging port and need to be replaced.

The newer phones are coming out with very sensitive ports, so you have to be finesse with them.

sorry you can't do that anymore some parts of your phone is damage, yes you can charge in electric using A/C because current flow is constant while battery is low.
