To locate the problem, it's important you own a multimeter, which can read DC Voltage and resistance.

If you do own one, then you can perform the following :

1. Battery
Set your multimeter in Voltage (DC)-mode.
Remove the battery from your phone and see what Voltage it's rated. (might be something like 3.7V, 4.2V or even higher.

The phone contains a minimum of 2 (small) pins, which is touching the battery, when it was inserted. The battery will have 2 or move gold-alike pads.Try to measure the battery at these pads to see the Voltage. If there are more pins, don't worry, just try to measure between all pins.
If the readout at your multimeter is roughly 0.5 Volts below the rated Voltage, the battery should be replaced.


Example :
Battery rated 3.7 V. Readout multimeter : 3.2 V
Battery should be replaced.

2. Adapter / charger
Insert the adapter in a wall-outlet (110 / 240 V AC)
The adapter, contains a plug, which inserts into your mobile phone. At this plug, you need the Voltage. The readout at your multimeter should be a higher than the Voltage-rating at he battery. If not, your adapter / charger is damaged.

3. Onboard connection
Set your multimeter in Resistance-mode, sometimes also shown as the Ohm-sign.
When charging your phone, your adapter is connected to your phone, redirected to the battery. Now it's time to check if there's a good connection between the phone-inlet and the battery-pins inside your phone. The inlet has in the center a metal pin. Try to connect your multimeter to this pin, and one of the battery-pins inside your phone. If there's no connection, to any of these pins, you'll get no readout. This might mean, the phone-inletconnector is not well connected to the board(*) of your phone.
(*) The green print, with all tiny electronic components.

The source of this damage might be :

A) While charging, the phone dropped on the floor.

B) Non-official adapter / charger
Maybe a higher rated current than allowed. A battery may be charged 1 / 10th of the specificated current. So, if the battery shows 1600 mAh, the batttery can be safely charged at a current of 160 mAh. If you use a 2A (= 2000 mA) charger, you can charge the battery, but results in a shorter lifetime of the battery.
Sometimes, even polarity might be an issue (reversed) or the non-official charger is supplying AC-Voltage instead of DC-Voltage.

C) Damaged onboard controller
Some phones contain a kind of controller-IC to control the charging proces. If the charger was supplying a too high Voltage or current (Ampere), it might end up in a fried controller-IC.
I such case you might have heard a "plop" when inserting this charger into your phone, or noticed smoke or a distinctive smell (of burned components)

Any repair for type A, B or C-damage, requires special skills and tools. If you lack any of these 2, go for a repair-shop or buy a new mobile phone.

Make sure you are in an outlet that has power running to it, or make sure that the charger is fully functional.

Had this tablet for one day, its showing 50% .. battery, when should I recharge..


There's no harm in keeping it on charge all the time. Unlike older rechargeables, newer Li-ion batteries don't need to be broken in by running them down and then recharging.

Not charging


Hello,

Have try to use another similar charger to charge it to see if it will charge? If you have and yet it did not charge, it means the charger is not the problem.

The problem is the the charging port, the charging port of your phone is bad that is why it is not charging, all you need do is to change the charging port of your phone and you will see that your phone will charge.

Replace the charging port and you will see that the phone will charge.

Take care.

Phone not holding charge with new battery


Hello,

Have you try to use another charger to charge and it doesn't hold charge? if yes., no problem because it be that your charger is bad. But since it does not charge with another charger, it means the charging port is bad.

The problem with the phone is the charging port, the charging port of your phone is not charging the phone that is why it doesn't hold any charge,

All you need to do is to change the charging port of your phone and you will see that your phone will hold charge.

Take care.

Phone won't charge


Hi, The Li-ion battery cahrging circuitary is some what complex. For most chargers, the charging procedure is divided into three main phases: ? Pre-charging phase ? Constant-current-charging phase ? Constant-voltage-charging phase In the Pre-charging phase, it utilizes low charging current to protect the battery. However,in most recharging situations, the charged batteries still have some voltage remaining, so the charger does not need to apply this action, and just passes it on to the next charging phase. The constant current and voltage charging phases are the main charging phase for recharging the batteries, where most of the charging energy is transformed into the battery. The maximum charging current for a battery depends on the battery?s rated capacity. For example, one battery rated 700 mAh usually can be charged at 350 mAh to 400mA, for faster charging effort. When the charged battery is Li-Ion, in the last charging procedure, the microcontroller normally maintains regular charging voltage while monitoring charging current to determine when the charging procedure should be completed. When the battery is fully charged, most of the electrical energy is converted to thermal energy, which can result in high battery temperature. In this case, the temperature monitoring function will be added for the solution. But since most Li-Ion batteries on the market also have an over-charging protection function, the temperature detect function is rarely used. So it is better to get your phone charging circuitary checked at a local store rather than to make a charger,coz both may cost you almost same. all the best my friend. regards sreejith
