Question about LG Cell Phones
My LG Thrive had really low battery life when I woke up this morning. So I plugged it into my wall charger that I use on a daily basis. When it was plugged in, it would try to boot up by showing the LG logo screen and that is it. It did this probably 7 or 8 times before I unplugged it. Once unplugged, it had enough battery power to turn on (I couldn't turn it on when it was "charging"). Once turned on, it booted up but showed that it wasn't charging and it would randomly recognize my charger then would lose the charge. I figured it was my charger, so I went and trued two different ones. Nothing. Same thing. I've never had problems with it before. It recognizes the charger sometimes but never actually charges. Just says it has 1% charged for like hours. Any suggestions? I've shut it off since then to let it charge but it doesn't look like it's getting anything. The battery symbol just flashes red.
It's possible that your battery has gone bad. The first thing I'd do is a factory reset (I know this means you'll lose all your data, but the phone store is going to do the same thing anyway as part of their troubleshooting process). Then, after resetting the phone, see if it charges.
If not, take it to your nearest service provider's location and ask them to troubleshoot it (if you have a protection plan or warranty).
Otherwise, I'd start by replacing the battery (you can get them online or from your phone store). From what you've described, it sounds like the battery or POSSIBLY the charging port. It's not uncommon for smart phones to have their batteries suddenly die on them. I've had several LGs and a Samsung that have done this to me. Out of the blue, they will just quit charging and every time it's been a bad battery. Replaced the battery and the issue went away! That's the cheapest place to start, anyway.

have you tried your dads battery in your phone it sounds like the battery is dead if your charger works on your dads phone then you know it not the charger the chances are it is the battery it would only be the phone if it has been dropped or got wet if this hasnt happened then the problem is the battery if your dads battery is the same then try charging his batt through your phone that way you would know if it was phone or battery.
If you take the phone into any phone shop they will test the phone and battery for free for you they can try the battery and also try a new battery in your phone and they will tell you if it is phone or battery but from my experiance it is going to be the battery let me know how you get on ok

Hi Robert, actually its LG and the batteries are the worst - i did the same thing with my brand new shine! You need to be careful when you start a new battery - make sure you drain it 100%, then charge for 6-8hrs, then drain 100% then recharge - after that you are good.
a new chocolate battery goes for $25-40
