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 fix a battery on a samsung tablet


The problem may be a frayed wire inside the charger cable right at the connector, or the charger jack may be worn or have a cracked solder connection. If it charges reliably with a different cable (such as a USB cable connected to the computer, it is probably the charger cable. If it has to be wiggled to get it to charge with a known good cable, then the charger jack should be replaced. This requires an expert technician; the solder connections are very small, and the circuitry requires special handling because it is easily damaged by static electricity.

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.

The power cord when connected to the laptop is loose and looses connectivity. how do i tighten it or secure it to keep the connectivity?


Laptop chargers usually split into two parts, there will be a "brick" which is usually connected to a thick cord which has the plug on one end, and there will be another, detachable, thinner cord connected to it as well, which has the laptop adapter. Ensure that the charger is firmly plugged into the wall, and also ensure there is a secure connection where the second cord plugs into the charger.
Has anyone recently tripped over your charger? Did it fall? Could it have broken from wear and tear over time? If the answer to any of these is yes, then you should consider getting a replacement charger, there isn't really that much you can do to fix one if it's loose like that.

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.

Computer works by Battery only but not A/C cord


Your DC Jack Is Most Likely Failing From What You Describe....
The DC Jack Is The Port Where Your Charger Cord Plugs Into..
If Wiggled Enough, It Will Pry Loose From The Motherboard And Eventually It Will Begin To Short Out The Power, If Left Unrepaired, It Will Eventually Lose All Means Of Charging/Powering On Due To The Solder Being Burnt Away From The Positive Pins That Connect To The Mainboard....

You Might Want To Test Your AC Adapter With A Multimeter For Positive Power and Correct Voltage .. Sometimes A Broken Cord Will test Good If The Break Is Making Contact when testing....
So When Testing the cord... Slightly wiggle it to see if indeed there is a break in it or not...

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.

Battery will not charge nor is able to use AC power to stay on.


Hi everyone it seems to me that the DC connector is loose inside your laptops,try wiggling it about gently at the charger to laptop cord nearer to the dc socket to verify this.Only solution is resolder or new dc socket.
