Re: it isnt charging
If the power connection is loose on the motherboard then you will either need to get the connector replaced (Many places advertize replacing the jack for around $100) or replace the motherboard. (Also around $100)

If it's not a recognized charger it'll stop charging the battery and try to run on the charger alone. If the peak draw of the laptop is higher than the charger output, it'll go right back off.
Try removing the battery and see if it'll boot on the charger alone.
Try an Antec charger with an adjustable votage output. I tried a new battery, charger, BIOS udate, etc, etc, etc. After fighting it for about 2 months, I found the Antec at Best Buy. Took it home, plugged it in, slid the adjuster up till the "charge" light came on. Been working fine for about 6 months.
Your phone doesn't charge? or does not hold a charge?
If the battery meter is not running when ur charger is plugged in, it could be a charging port problem or a battery problem. Go to a nearby shop to have someone try another battery & to determine if that is a battery or a phone problem. If it's the battery then buy a new one. if it's the phone, have a Samsung tech repair it for you
I think something's goofy with these headsets. I bought 2 of them recently (one for me and one for my g/f). Within a week or so, she told me hers just "died" - and she couldn't get the blue light to come on when it was plugged into the charger.
Mine acted dead too, just a day or so before she told me about her problem. On mine, I think I just held down the "volume down" button and the main button at the same time for about 15 seconds and it appeared to "reset" it. That apparently didn't work for hers, but oddly enough - after a few days, we plugged it into my charger and it started working again!
