Question about LG VX3400 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Works Only When Plugged In

Won't turn on when unplugged, when on charger everything works as it should. Shows that the battery is fully charged. As soon as it is unplugged, it goes completely dead. Plug it back in and viola' it works fine. Not a problem except it is supposed to be a MOBILE phone.

Re: Works Only When Plugged In

Me too. just started today. i had let the battery run down all the way. i tried taking the battery out but that didn't help.

I also accidentally dropped it in my coffee this afternoon, after the battery ran out, so that might have something to do with it.

Motorola cellular w376g, battery won't charge

If possible test with another charger like a car charger if you have one
also try removing the battery plug in the charger and put the battery back in (don't touch the contacts/gold pins)

if it works with other chargers then the charger is bad

if it doesn't work with other chargers charging port/battery/phone is bad

The battery is deceiving you. This is actually a battery problem and you just need a new battery to fix it. Visit the store and get a new battery order. They will cost little to nothing.

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...

Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!

I would suggest just using the phone until you wear the battery down and then put it back on the charger and charge it up over night and see if it charges. If that works then probably the pop you heard was the part of the display that shows the bars going up blowing out but at least the phone will work for you.

send the phone away for a warranty repair thats if its still in the 12 months warranty. sounds like the phone. since your phone is working with the charger in it, that points to the battery but if you bought a new one then it has to be the phone unless you are very unlucky in getting 2 dysfunctional batteries. But the best way around this is to send it away under warranty

battery may show fully charged while charging, but it can noot hold the charge. So you need a new battery. If under warranty ask Verizon for replacement.

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
