Straight talk samsung galaxy proclaim cell phone. Turns off and on by itself. Will say battery critically low but when plug in battery shows not that low. cant do browser or apps unless plugged to charger....


Its battery is weak. Even though it shows full; when the O/S loads, the CPU of the phone will take large amount of current, and the battery is unable to supply it during that time. In short; the current storing capacity; at least 1.2AMPs, should be there with the battery, but now there is not. It won't hold charge; in terms of current.
Replace the battery with new one. There is no other problem to your phone.

I've gone through exactly what your're going through right now.
I'm sorry to say but your battery is dead, you need to get it replaced. It can be replaced under warranty, if you have it.

To avoid this kind of a problem in future take care that you:
1. Don't let the battery drain out after your PC warns about low battery.
2. Try to maintain it's charge when you are not using it for days. The self discharge of the battery may take it below the critical level even when you're not using it. So keep charging it even when you're not using it.
3. Preferably use your laptop on external power supply (keep it on charging while using it whenever possible), charging it even when the battery is full doesn't hurt.
4. Let it have a charging and discharging cycle at least once in two weeks.

The above steps will help you maintain a good health of your battery and avoid the problem you're in currently.

I have cannon digital camera IXUS 255 HS. I


Dear Tejas Belani,
I hope you're still reading this but I had exactly the same problem with the Ixus 255 HS as you describe (full battery - false message - filled battery icon when looking to pictures on the memory card).
After some failed rescue attempts (recharging, completely discharging, 10 second hold of on/off button), I think I finally found it: put a small piece of paper or carton in between the battery opening door and the battery. This pushes the battery a couple of millimeters deeper in the battery bay and ensures a good contact between battery and pins at the other end.

Seems like Canon were a bit cheap on the plastic levers that secure the battery ... or perhaps they erode after some time of usage. This type of camera is often exposed to more aggressive conditions than the bigger, more expensive camera's out there :)
