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.

    You're going to have to call Verizon and talk to them about it.

How do I replace the charger slot on my Samsung Galaxy 3 phone?

Try batteries plus, they will test the phone slot for you and may have an alternate charger that will work otherwise it may be cheaper to replace phone.

Mophie charger plug wont stay in

I had the same issue. I was able to trim the cable shell to get it to insert further and take better hold. I suspect some cables may work better than others but the design is poor as they have the jack on a curved corner. Had they angled it a little it would work better and actually work. They should also include a screen protector for the price. The case scrapes off standard protectors because of the tight fix, though the tight fit is good. I actually love the product though as it actually works. Just not enough real world testing.

When you plug into charger will not charge goes in and out


This can happen if either the charger cable is broken or the charger is not making contact with the phone.

If you find that the charger works when you "wiggle" the cord of the charger near the head, you most likely have a lose wire in the cable. This can cause damage to your phone so I would recommend getting a new charger.

If the cable is fine and the fault lies with the phone, it would be better to have an professional look at your phone.

Let me know if this solution was helpful!

When I put in the charger for my Samsung phone, it says "Charging stop" when I put the phone down. Why?

Your charger is probably loose or not fitting into the port correctly. After you put it down, wiggle it and see if the "charging stop" disappears.

I have just bought a SAMSUNG SGH MI50 mobile. I can't understand how to insert the CHARGER into the phone. From the manual it appears that I have to somehow open the small SLOT on RHS side. But I dont know...

charger slot is on the upper right hand side of your mobile.. open the cover with the help of a pin or from your finger.. first time you have to force it... because as you say that it is brand new phone.. in the new phone it is tight fitted.. after opening it first time it is loose enough that you open it with your finger...
so don't afraid or go to the mobile shop they will open it carefully

if you satisfies with the answer given by me

Envy 1 won't charge. what can I do?

There is no way to fix this yourself unless you are handy with a soldering iron. The power jack that you plug the cord into has come loose off of the phone's mainboard. The only way to fix this (assuming you don't know how to use a soldering iron) is to take it to a phone dealer for repair.

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 charger cord to stay in phone to charge

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.
