Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

Phone not charging

My phone charger stopped working yesterday. I tripped over the cord while it was charging and somewhat forcibly yanked the phone charger out of the phone to answer a call. Afterwards, the phone charger did not work in the phone. I thought the phone charger was not working, but I brought a new charger today. The new charger does not work either! Could there be something wrong with the valve on the phone itself? What should I do? Is it even worth fixing?

    My phone went dead.So I hooked it up to the charger.But then the light didn't come on to let me know it's charging.So I moved my phone around a little.I held it up in the air and sort of pulled it away from the charger in the wall to see if the light would come on cause it seemed like a shortage in the charger.And the light did come on at one point when I was moving my phone around.But then I accidently moved and I tried moving it around again but it didn't work.I can't go a day without using my cell.So can anyone help me out?

If the new charger is also not working then surely it's the problem of that charger port (valve). It must have been damaged.U need to get it fixed from the hardware vendor.

My phone was working place it on charger went back and the phone is dead will not come on

The same thing happened to me. It's probably your charger porter. did you somewhat yank the charger out sometime or did it fall of a table or something and the charger yanked itself out when it fell (if it fell). If that's the problem, try putting the charger in the phone & hold the charger up, worked for me. You could also try a different charger or buy a battery charger like I did. There's the link if of the battery charger if needed. I hope this helps!

My zte score wont charge unless i press the charger into the port and hold it there forcibly

Please try using a different charger and battery to check if the is with the device or with the accessories. If the same issue persists even with different charger or a battery, then it might be the issue with the charging port of the device.

I just bought a new battery charger cable called (Sealed Lead-Acid Charger) to replace an older (Lead Acid battery charger). The New Battery charger will charge for about 2 to 5 minutes and then stop...

ismail the charger you bought should do the job. By stop charging do you mean the light on the charger turns from yellow to green? Your scooter has small batteries 12/12 and don't require along period of charging. Now the scooter has a heat sensor for the batteries and will cut off charging when temp of the batteries gets too high. The older charger could have overcharged your batteries and made them weaker instead of stronger. I would suggest you replace the batteries (2 12/12AH) and charge them with the new charger. Remember to reinstall the heat sensors on each battery when replacing. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 v dc and put the leads into the 2 outer plugs in the charger port on the battery pack. You should read 24-26 volts dc when the batteries are fully charged anything less would mean weak batteries. Hope this helps you

My blackberry phone wont power up or charge

It probably wont power up because it wont charge. the USB port may be bad preventing it from charging. I assume you have tried both the wall charger and the computer connection and have not had any luck with either one. Its probably the USB port has stopped working. common problem if the USB cable had been yanked or severely stressed while plugged in to the phone

Charging phone in Europe


Any adapter that accepts up to 220volts will work with just the plug end adapter. However if it only accepts 110 you will need to purchase a voltage converter.

Have a safe trip in europe!
