Charging the phone

I plug in the charger and all and the phone would not charge. Before there was a problem where i had to like wiggle it to a certain spot to get it charging but then it crapped out. So i bought a new charger and its still not working right. It will charge for like a second and then stop and then charge for a second and stop, etc and the charging is going no where. I dont know whats the problem, but i need this phone to get charged and working!

Re: charging the phone

I had the same problem, and I simply turned the phone off and removed the battery and wiped it clean and the receiver port clean and put it back together. Now it charges again.

Re: charging the phone

Sounds like maybe the hardware has damage in the component where the charger goes in. Maybe it needs to be repaired. Check your warranty status

My phone died while being charged, but it wasn't charging at all. I replaced the battery and it still will not power up. What's wrong?

Your charging cord could be bad or the place where your charger plugs in is bad , try wiggling it there.

Charger connector to phone worn out, wiggle it around to see if it starts charging.
Not plugged into a live outlet.
Charger broken, replace.
Phone battery failed, replace.
Call or visit your carrier and ask for help.
Good luck!

Okay. When i plug in my charger to my phone, it will not charge for anything! It may be a possibility that i spilled some yogurt on it also /: but there is nothing wrong with the phone itself.. Like it...

Did spill the yogurt on the phone, or on the charger?

What happend when you plugged in the charger, specifically? Did your phone turn off, if not, were there any changes on the display, did the battery bars blink?

Also, if this is your AC charger for inside your home, do you have a car charger and have you tried it? If your car charger works, or if you are able to borrow someone's charger and IT works, then YOUR charger needs to be replaced. Best Buy, Wal Mart Electronic dept,or Staples, Office Depot, all these retail outlets sell replacement AC and DC ( 12v battery ) chargers. Cellphone chargers are notoriously easy to break, its not unusual to have to replace it during the life of any given phone.

You could try wiggling the connector, and watching the display to see if you have intermittent contact. Most of the ones I've had to replace were like that. They would only work if I pushed in the connector, or held it a certain way. If I just hooked it up and left it, it would not make a connection to the juice. Watch the display closely as your wiggling. You are looking to see if the display light up, or the battery bars to blink. If you can see it connect, even intermittently, you know your phone, and its ability to charge is okay,

Blackberry curve won't charge!

You need to get a different charger. The Mini-USB head on the charger is losing contact with the phone charging connectors. Try not to push or wiggle the mini-usb head too often when it is connected to the phone because you could bend the pins inside the phone's female charging receptacle. If that happens, you will need to get another phone because it will definitely need to be replaced then.

I would strongly advise trying a different and preferably new charger. Good luck, and hope this helps.

My env2 wont charge. whenever i plug it in, the battery stays the same. what do i do?

This seems to be a common problem for the env2. If you hold your charger a certain way in the phone does it charger? Is the charger port broken or damaged?

If so the easiest workaround is to get an external battery charger and extra battery to charge the phone.

Check out the following link for information on the battery charger and other options for the env2 charge issue.

Env help plz

The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.
