Hi. these situations are mostly caused by a bent or broken copper prong that is located within the input charger port that is inside the phone housing.

When you insert the charge cord into the input port, there are copper prongs that will have to connect to each other and , this contact point will transfer the necessary current to the cell for a proper charge.

If the prongs are damage in any way due to broken copper or, bent copper prongs, this will prevent the necessary current from flowing to the cell.

Most remedies are crude like using a tooth pick or paper clip to straighten out the prongs inside the port. these methods do more harm than good and i recommend sending this phone in for a input port transplant. the manufacture or local repair depot is the best repair solution for this situation.

There is one thing that i would do before sending it to the repair depot. try using a completely different battery cell. if you purchase a new battery and the charger continues to not charge, this will confirm the input port failure.

Please rate and god bless:)

It charges somtmes but only 26% now it wont charge and wont turn on i have changed cords and plugs nothing works please help


1. is there lint or some pants pocket debris or dirt inside the charging port on the bottom of the phone? use something non metal that won't break inside, it needs to be thin enough to move around and poke around the bottom, not interfering with the chip that sticks out.

charges-somtmes-but-only-26-now-wont-c42sdu52tip34gjoftdmfcql-4-0.png before you do that.. turn off the phone and take out the battery just in case. you don't want to short the charging port, so why risk it.

you can use a thin side wooden tooth pick (not the thick rounded ones, they won't fit), or you can use an unused plastic brush tooth pick that's available at most stores like Walgreens, CVS, Safeway, etc..

2. If nothing comes out, try using a different wall charger adapter that works for your Samsung device. Many cell phones use a 3volt charger that won't work with Samsung smartphones because Galaxy phones need a 5volt charger. The others will just trickle charge it or may not work at all. Also, the cord itself. You can't just use any micro USB charging cable. You need to use one that can push enough electricity to your device. So it has to be a Samsung smartphone compatible one. If you have ruled this out..

3. Is the wall outlet bad? Try a different wall outlet. Example: at the airport we tried all the wall outlets in the same area, none of those charged the device. We thought it could be the charging cable or the adapter that was dead. Then we went to another area in the airport and tried again. This time we were charging the phone fine. Cable and charging adapter were apparently working great.

4. If that's not it.. what happens when you try jiggling the charging cable connected to the phone.. try angling the cable head to the left or right.. does it only charge when in a specific position? it could be the charging cable or the charging port that needs fixing..

5. If that was not the case, and everything you've tried doesn't work, it could just be the charging port on the phone is bad. Bring it to your local cellular repair shop. It should cost around $35 to $50 to fix.

6. If your phone is not worth it to fix it, it might be a better idea to buy a newer model phone. If you can't afford another phone or to fix the port, why not just buy a separate battery wall charger. You can buy a cheap China version to charge your existing battery outside of the phone and then just pop the fully charged battery in when you need to use the phone. I'd recommend charging the battery when you are sleeping.
