1) You have corrosion in the charging port and it is shorting it out. Remove battery and clean inside port hole with alcohol and a long bristle brush.

2) The charging port needs to me resoldered. That is a daily repair for my shop. the TWO OUTTER pins are the ones that do the charging the middle are for USB. Just reflow the solder, sometimes they have a crack in them where they bend down to solder into the board. in that case you will have to use a super fine wire to jump the pins where they are broken and solder them to the board. Not for everyone and you need magnification super small iron and flux to relow the solder. never add solder just reflow it with flux. i charger $25 in my shop.

SOURCE: battery life under 5 hours

have you let the battery go totally flat as this is recomended to do every couple of months because if you dont let the battery go totally flat this stops the battery from full recharging and will cause bad cells in the batt so i would let hte battery totally flat till it wont even light phone up then fully charge for 16 hours see if this improves the battery if not then the charger is probably over heating and cutting off so you could replace the charge hope this is some help to you

I charge my phone (which is a Motorola) all the time with the USB cord. If you have the driver for your phone installed on your computer, it should work =)

SOURCE: samsung omnia problem trying to charge battery

It looks like battery is damaged... When plugged in to charger phone shouldn't power on. Try put it on charger when on and see if charging icon appear. (top right corner-battery status icon should change -insted of battery to charging.) Battery is fully charged after cca 4 hours, 80% after 2 hours.

SOURCE: Samsung u740 wont charge anymore

Bad battery, you can get one pretty cheap off of www.uxcell.com for like 3 or 4 bucks, as far as using a generic charger, I never heard of that before, if you know someone with the same phone, ask yhem to use the battery for a second, and try to charge your phone.

Battery will not charge


There are only three likely solutions.

1. The charge port on your phone is broken (Most likely)
2. The battery has reached a thermal cutoff and will no longer accept a charge.
3. The charger cable is bad.

If you can try another battery or put that battery into another phone you can isolate that problem. If you can charge something else with your charger then your charger workers.

If that still doesn't work then plug the charger into your phone and lightly press on the charger. If your phone springs to life it means the charge port is likely suffering from a poor connection. If this is the case then sadly there is nothing you can do unless you're very good at soldering.

I plug my phone into the charger and it won't charge.. it sometimes charges but I have to keep turning it off and on and taking the battery out and when it does charge I can't use it while charging or it...


this problem could be a few things......either the phone jack where you plug it in to charge it- is loose....not soldered good enough inside the phone......or......the plug from the charger is bad...intermittant connection.........or........the battery in your phone is defective so instead of charging normally, it will only charge slightly until the phone says that there's a problem with the battery, so it will stop charging because it is trying to charge a bad battery....try to change the battery first with a new one....if that doesn't work then the first 2 faults that i mentioned would probably be the cause......of course you can always have the plug and jack on the phone checked first before you buy a new battery...it's up to you which one you want to try first.....good luck

Why doesn't my htc phone charge while plug in?


First, you need to check to see if the problem is with the phone - the battery - or the charger.

If you have a car charger, try to charge the phone with it. If it works, you'll need to replace your home charger.

If the car charger doesn't charge the phone - you'll either need to replace the phones battery or your home charger. (Sometimes the battery will go bad if you use a car charger not made specifically for the phone.)

If you replace your battery and it still doesn't charge you'll need to replace your home charger.

If after you've replaced the battery and the home charger and it still doesn't charge - your problem is with the phone and it will either need to be replaced or repaired.

Won't charge


Hello,

if the charger is good, then there is something wrong with the charging port or the battery.

If the battery is very flat before you charge, the charger would not be unable to wake the battery because the battery cell is weak. Its only a desktop charger that can wake the battery cell.

So, test your phone with another good battery, and if it still does not charge, then the charging port is bad as I said earlier.

Best wishes.

Battery will not get any charge


Cell phone batteries are only good for about 300 charges then they go kaput. Take your charger to the store and try it there likely just a bad battery. Or a faulty charger, they will be able to tell you at US Cellular they have test equipment that they can check the battery and the charger and the phone charging circuit, I've never been charged for that service.
