The Sidekick 3 has a charging issue that crops up after awhile. The unit will fail to charge at all even though you may get the charging light. If you are under warranty, great! Send it in and get it fixed. If not, buy an extra battery and a Sidekick 3 charging cradle . This will cost about 40 dollars but it that is a lot better than the 100+ it will cost to fix it! When looking at a cradle, make sure it says it has a spare battery charger. Some of the Sidekick Charging cradles don't. If you decide to go this route, make sure to power down your sidekick 3 before changing batteries. This will prevent the data from being lost. If you remove the battery while the sidekick is on, it will do a hard reset and your data will download again from server, but it will take awhile. Check out the Links below to find batteries and charging cradles. Sidekick 3 Battery Sidekick 3 Charging Cradle

If it is a single pin charger that just plugs into the phone it sounds like the pin inside the phone has broken from the board which is why you have to wriggle it or wrap it up to get it to work.
this can be repaired but costs are determined by your repairer.

Why does light go on then immediately off again and my Nintendo D S won't charge Why does the light go on then straight off again and my Nintendo lite wont Charge


Is the light blinking while you wiggle the plug? If so there are one of two problems one is that your cord is broke. Or two the jack on your DS is broken. Try replacing the cord first as it is cheaper.

Charging my nook and the screen came on and went to 99% and thats all the screen will do. Charging light shows green and then it sometimes goes back to orange.


It could be your cable, Nook is know to have faulty charging cables, you may have to buy a new one. If you do, here is a tip, search for a pen that you have to click the top to use it, take it apart and take out the spring, now wrap the spring carefully around the charging cord starting at the end where you plug it into the Nook, I attached a photo. This keeps the cord from bending and cracking the wires inside the cable cb393b2a-435d-4472-be29-0ac4a57497ee.jpg

Cant' charge my dvd because there is just a hole


I know this may sound dumb, but the wires inside these charger plugs are weak and apparently break very easily from all the bending that comes from just moving your dvd around. Did you try plugging it in and wiggling the wire a bit to see if the recharge light comes on at some point? I have done this and at the point the light comes on, I hold it and wrap electrical tape to the cord (like a "cast") to keep that spot in the cord from bending again. It works but I have to check to be sure the light is on when recharging (if not - wiggle a bit) and step away and not touch it until it is finished charging. Hard to beleive they don't make these better, anyway I found a replacement cord at www.techexcess.net at a reasonable price.
