Car charger lights up but phone does not take charge

Lately the charger has been making frequent beeping noises while charging. Today when I plugged it in the red light on the charger base came on but the red light on the phone does not, the beep noise indicating charging was not heard, and the phone did not take any charge. Is this a problem with the car charger or the phone?

Re: Car charger lights up but phone does not take charge

Try charging your fon in your house outlet. if it works then your car charger is defective. if still your fon wont charge in your house then your fon has a prob in its charging section.

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...

Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

Motorola v325 won't charge after using phillips universal charger

Sometimes a bad charger can send a high voltage charge to the phone and fry the charging port on the phone. That is why a lot of the car chargers today have a fuse on them now. So that it will blow the fuse on the charger, instead of frying your phone's charger spot.

It's beeping because the battery is completely dead and needs to charge. If beeping doesn't stop after a while of charging, you may need a new battery or a new charger.

Battery charging problem

Seems like it may be your wall charger.
I would inspect your connectors (both charger & phone) as well though (for dirt or debris).
I would also suggest using Motorola's wall chargers, the products seem to charge best with them rather than the after-market knock-offs which also seem to damage the phones connectors on some models.

Wont charge and makes noises

First get rubbing alcohol (higher % the better) and brush both ports on the phone and the charger. Blow dry it for a minute or so and plug in.

If still no-go, then try it with another charger....if the same result, the phone has a bad charging port and need to be replaced.

The newer phones are coming out with very sensitive ports, so you have to be finesse with them.

Can't Charge!!

Try another charger. I broke the plastic that locked into the phone on my car charger and had problems charging. The phone is very finicky about the contacts. Had to replace charger.
