    I have a samsung phone, it was purchased in June of 2007 (this year). It wont charge . The phone works with a charged battery, but it wont charge it up again. It's not the charger either ,The charger works fine because it worked on my Father's phone which is the same as mine. I went to the Cingular store in pittsburg Ca. and they said I need a new Battery, But that wont do any good once the Battery needs to be charged again. How can I get this fixed?. A new phone will cost around $246.00 plus tax. A new Battery is $59.95 plus tax (that's over $60.00). My Father bought me the phone and he is on a very fixed income. I feel so bad about it that now I have started to avoid his calls, I don't know what to say because it is not fixed yet. I don't want him to think it was my fault or that he has wasted a good deal of money. Please can someone help me?. I cannot afford much because due to illness I am not working and have just started to be able to walk more than the 5 steps at a time since the end of last june. thank you for any help

There is only really three possible solutions to this:

Firstly replace the phone expensive so is it really worth it?

Sencondly again expensive, send the phone away for repair.
This will vary in cost greatly depending on who deals with it and what the problem is.

Lastly- You are going to need to try and clean the contacts on the phone. If the contacts are badly worn or oxidized etc, then the connection will not create a circuit. Use a pin or bent paper clip to gently remove dirt from around the contacts and to gently score the surface of the connectors to create clean metal between the charger and phone.

Good luck with this one as the last method is not that reliable.

97 checvy astro 4.3 6cyl. I replaced battery, Starter and the batt wont hold a charge. Is it possible to check the wiring from the alt to the starter without having to remove the alternator?

Yes, If you have a volt meter, jump and start engine, with engine running you should have approx 13.5 to 14.2volts that would tell me that batt is getting charged when engine is running. you said new batt would not hold a charge, I would be thinking about a parasitic draw(small amount of power) that in time will drain batt. things to look for are glove box lights, under hood lights that dont turn off. one easy way too see if you have a draw is to disconnect one batt cable, now use a regular (12volt non-self powered) test light and touch one end to batt cable and the other to empty batt terminal, with no light switches on and doors closed, this test light should not light and if it does then you have a drain on batt that will kill it say overnight.

Not charging replaced alternater still wont charge

Be sure to charge the battery, otherwise you might smoke the new alternator(not made to charge a dead batt.). Have the batt. load tested. Check batt. cable ends for corrosion.

If it was not charging before and you replaced the battery and charger, then the charging circuit has most likely failed possibly a DC/DC converter. Probably terminal I'm afraid
