Question about Samsung Tocco F480 - Pay Monthly Cellular Phone
I have a Samsung Tocco and it is not charging, i think something has happened inside the port, as i have tried 3 different chargers. Could i fix this myself, or if not how much do you think a repair would be (in £'s)? Thanks :-)
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:)
