LG shine wont charge

My LG shine has gone dead and my wall charger and my usb wont charge the batter, i even borrowed my friends charger and it still doesnt work, i think it might be my phone where the charger connects. ??? plz help? My LG wont charge either I went to a friends house and used her charger and there is actually charged. But at my house it wont? What is wrong with my phone?? Or is it just a charger? I have gotten two new chargers and they work but now neither of them work it has happened to the same thing? I have to wiggle the charger around then when it says charging i have to hold it there for about 2 hours it is not fun?

Zoe-

The charger port is going bad. It happens over time The symptom of this is you have to hold it into place.

The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered under warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com

2. you can get a new phone. cost ???

3.Youcan get an external battery charger to charger the battery separate fromphone. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you canhave one charging at all times. The best and cheapest place to buy a new charger for yourshine is ebay. They run about 5 dollars shipped. Check out thefollowing link for the selection.

Exactly.its the problem of the inlet connections- where u connect the charger.its loosened up internally and is gone faulty.dont push the pin to try charging it or you may damage it more.just go to any mobile repair shop.they will change the inlet of the phone from wher u insert the charger pin.its not at all expensive.
thanks.

It could be your charger. Even though charger light is on it maybe defective. Can you put in another phone or borrow one and/or charger from a friend?

It could be the charger, the phone's power interface, or your battery. When you plug the phone in to charge it, does it recognize the charger and show the lightning bolt symbol for charging?

If you use your computer's USB port to charge it instead of the wall charger, does it act any differently?

Wont charge


Try a car charger. If the car charger works, then it is either
A) Your power outlet
B) Your wall charger Power Supply unit
C) The phone connector on your wall charger.

If it doesn't work on the car charger, then it is most likely your phone charging system or the connection for charging on your phone. Either way, you will most likely need a new phone. Sorry.

Lg Vu wont charge


First you must determine is it the charger faulty or the phone ? , have you a friend with the same phone if so try her or his battery to see if your phone is ok if so try the charger with your battery and see if it charges if it does get a new charger , if it did not charge or work with your friends battery or charger the sorry it would be cheaper to buy a new phone than try to get it fixed ...
if you haven't got a friend with the same phone have a local electrician check if there is an output from your charger . if there is it may just be the battery try a new one if still no luck it is probably the phone's charger circuit gone pop ,, sorry .. vortash
