Won't charge. completley dead

My android won't charge the battery at all, although it gets very hot when it is plugged. The device remains completely off, even after trying to charge it for half an hour. It won't even show if it is charging or not.

I would have to agree with the solutions posted previously. It certainly sounds like the battery has failed completely and won't even attempt to take and hold a charge. The best bet is to find a new battery and try that, if it works then you'll know for sure that was the problem. If not, then you'll need to take it to someone who can repair these new phones and let them have a shot at it.

My opinion: Buy a replacement battery at a decent price from a highly rated seller on eBay. IF the phone does not respond any differently, then dispose of it. It WILL fail, the only question is whether it will be silently, or in a flash of really hot fire. The only thing that can happen if a new battery doesn't cure this issue, is a nasty fire which can cause tremendous property damage, injury and even death. I am surprised you have been messing with that phone for this long. Yes, they are AWESOME phones. Yes they do some great stuff - I know folks who won't give up their SG phones for all the money in the world. Ultimately, ALL phones can be dangerous. Get rid of it.

This phone is a fire hazard, and having seen what Lithium-Ion batteries can do I would HIGHLY recommend you recycle it. DO not mess with it. One. Day. More.

SOURCE: Charging the battery on Samsung Upstage sph-m620.

Well if it's new, then I would take it back to the store from where you bought it. It will be under warranty so, if something is wrong you should be able to get it swapped out with a working one.

SOURCE: Samsung SGH D807 Charging Problem and no screen display

Hello,

Have you try to use another similar charger to charge your phone to see if it ill charge? because it could be that your charger is bad,. But if you have done that and it is same thing, it means the charging port of your phone is malfunctioning, that is why you have to use repetitive effort before it can charge.

Your battery is not charge due to the bad charging port of your phone, so your phone battery can not hold charge.

To resolve 1 and 2 problem of your phone, all you need to do is to change the charging port of your phone in other for your phone battery to charge and for your battery to charge.

Replace the charging port as said and you will see that your phone battery will charge.

For your screen, is it that the entire screen is black that you cannot see anything, not even text or see names from your contact? if it is, what you need to do is to change the flex on the the screen of your phone and you will see that your screen will display as you want it.

Take care.

My unit shuts off automatically seconds after I power it up and hot the menu The battery appears to be charged. Any ideas for troubleshooting?


Shutting off immediately would be an indicator that the battery is not charged or bad. Using the USB connection, connect to a suitable device such as a PC and allow a few minutes to charge. Turn unit on and see if conditions remains. It should be able to run even with a bad dead battery with supplied power from the USB. If you are successful allow the battery to charge. If after charging and removing the USB connector the GPS fails to remain on you may have to use a USB adapter in the 12 VDC receptacle in the car to operate.

Tablet turned off for several days, when turned off, the battery is almost dead?


Their is alot of resources that are not really dead when you switch android devices, so you need to plug battery out total in that case, or consider getting a resource repair kit to notify you of any resource sharings in the system.

I'm afraid it looks like the charging circuit on the mainboard is dead and is very hard if impossible to re-work so it looks like it will have to have the m/board replaced.
I was an engineer for Acer and saw a lot of these issues but unfortunately most of them were not repairable.

My 2 month old laptop, Acer, battery died while plugged in charging. Now it will not charge or come come on at all


My mom has a Acer, although it is a few years old, and with her computer she had to keep it plugged in or the computer would die. It would not charge at all. She tried getting a new battery which only lasted a few months before she had the problem again, then she got a new power cord. She eventually found a section where she could recalibrate the battery which has helped although the battery will only last for a few hours.
If your computer won't even turn on then it sounds like you might need a new battery and/or powercord. Also, make sure the computer isn't really cold or hot (I know with my gateway that if the computer is cold or hot then it won't turn on at all, regardless of charge). I hope this helps a little. The only other thing that I can think of is if the laptop overheating and something happened with the motherboard or something of that sort, which in that case you are probably better off buying a new computer.

Battery fully charged everything works but will not move completley dead


Hi za900

You have several options to consider.
1. Controller is bad. This can only be checked by putting another controller on it. There is no test for controllers.

2. If the charger is bad your scooter will not run.

3. make sure your brake is in the lock position.

4. make sure your scooter is not plugged into the wall.

5. If your brake is bad the scooter won't run.

6. If your Throttle engager is bad the scooter won't run.

Have a tech evaluate for you, too many things could be the problem.

Any durable medical equipment company in your area can help you.

Good Luck

Device will not power on. It is fully charged.


I have had several people bring me in their units dead. You need to try a reset first. Connect the USB cable to your unit and your computer Press and hold the ON button and the PLAY (>||) button at the same time for 20 seconds.
