I would recommend stopping by the shop you bought it at, or a cell phone accessory store. They will usually (more than likely) let you test out a charger, as it could be simply wear and tear on your charger. Doing this will address your problem as it will let you know whether in fact it is the charger, or the phone itself.

Good luck.

My phone is not holding a charge. I charge it overnight and this morning it was only at 32% charged. The day before the charge ran out very fast. How can I fix this problem?

It sounds like you need to replace the battery in your phone. NiCad batteries will build a memory, so you should not use the phone for, say 3 hours and place it back on the charger. You should use the phone and let it run down until you get a warning on the phone of low battery. That is when you should put the phone on the charger. It is okay to leave the phone on the charger for extended hours and it will not do anything to the battery, but in your case it looks like you have a bad battery.

My phone's charger keeps falling out of my phone and I am doing nothing to it. I have a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. And when I look at the charger and my phone's slot to put the charger, it looked fine

Check the end of the charging cable that plugs into the phone. One side should have 2 retainer pins that help hold the plug in the phone. Try other cables and see if others fit better.

If the phone is older, the port on the phone may have worn down some from being plugged/unplugged.

My zte maven won't turn on or charge

If your chargers a loose in the phone, that a part in your charging port broke off and it is cheaper to buy another Maven.

Make sure it is not your charger by using other ones to charge.

Remove the battery and plug the charger in, if your phone works without the battery then you need a new battery

Take the battery out for 10 seconds and put it back in, now try charging it.

If non of these options work for you, then your phone is most likely defective and it would be best to look into another phone. The good news is that if you get another Go-Phone or any other AT&T phone, all you need to do is take your sim card out and put it into the new phone to activate it. This means the phone will work right away and you will be able to keep your remaining air time and phone number.

My nokia 5130 charging slot does no more 'hold' the charger. I could not charge the battery. Is there any thing I can do? I recently have a previous nokia 5130 phone with the same problem...

here in the philippines, we have a "universal charger" where in you can take out the battery and put it on the universal charger and plug it to the outlet. it's best for your problem. however, if the said exchange that you have said here is part of a warranty then you still had the same problem with the same particular phone, i think you better go to the store where you purchased that phone and talk to them regarding the same old problem. and ask them if they can exchange a different unit for you because tell them that you are not satisfied with the performance of that unreliable and not so durable gadget and its accessories. make a deal with them. convince them. don't let them manipulate you to just accept something that is really not acceptable.

My nokia c5-00 phone is not charging

There are two things that can be wrong here. One is worse than the other.
It could just be that the charger cord has been bent and worn to where it has a break in the wire and can not get charge to your phone.
Or your phone might have something wrong with it's charger port.
You can go to a phone store and see if they have a charger for you to try so you can figure out if it is something wrong with your charger cord or your phone. If it is your charger cord that isn't working then you will simply have to replace it. If it is your phone that isn't working, then you might ask an electronics place if they can fix it or else you might have to replace your phone.
I wish you the best of luck. Thanks for using FixYa!

I cannot charge the blackberry 8320 and the battery is new.It was charging just fine. I change the battery and the charger.and it still has the problem.

Hi, my name is jeff and I work for a used cell phone and repair store in Sioux Falls South Dakota called THE CELL PHONE GUY. what could be going on is that your charge port is broken or loose. there are about 4-8 prongs that are solderd on to your board, those will come lose or break from dropping the phone, hagining your phone on your charger, or just normal wear and tear of putting your charger in and taking it out. you would have to re solder a new charge port on there to fix that. luckily my company THE CELL PHONE GUY are highly trained in charge ports we have done over 2000 charge port repairs with 2 coming back on warranty, if you want us to fix it give us a call! 605 335 0411

I have a Nokia E71 and the charging problem. When i plugged in the charger to the handset and it doesn't chage but if i either hold it still or standing the phone up at certain position or even push in the...

Have you checked the mouth of your charger? Because your charger mouth might have loose contact internally and you not knowing. But to confirm this, you have to borrow the type of your charger from a friend and test if your phone will do the same thing. And if this does not solve the problem, try loosing the phone with a phone screw driver, check if the charging port is contact the phone board well and if this did not still solve the problem, then you will have to completely change your phone charging.

Best wishes.

Loose connection to LG phone charger

use something like a small screwdriver to bend the two metal contacts inside the phone socket up a little so they press more firmly into the mating contacts in the channels on the charger plug.

if the charger plug wants to fall out, you can bend up a cutout/tab in the top metal shell part a little so the plug "clicks in" a little better.

it's a bad design.

Can't get the charger cord to stay in the slot too loose falls ou

Make your way to the nearest cell phone accessory or Verizon Wireless store and ask them to try a new charger. This will let you know whether it is the charger itself or the phone.
