Question about Samsung Eternity Cell Phone

1 Answer

Moisture problem? Discovered that as my phone was connected to charger, a blinking large battery "icon" came on. I took it to my local store, and customer rep said that the phone hand moisture in it, which could have happened due to answering the phone with sweaty hands a couple of times. I have opened the battery cover and removed battery and chips. After four days, no luck yet on being able to turn phone on. The model is a SGH A867 Eternity.

For moisture problem it only means that it causes corrosion to the phone's mother board. you can still get a local service center to have it checked if they can still repair the phone for you.

How do you know the battery is good? does the multimeter really read more than the battery should give, according to what is printed on it?
A 3,7 volt battery, should give at least 3,8, wham not connected. A 7,2 at least 7,4. Because the printed voltage should be on the connector, when you are discharging the battery.

When your charger is blinking, it could indicate the battery is not well. The Ri can be to high or something else, is wrong, and that is ht the charger won't or can't charge.

Mine does this often. Sometimes it's so dead that it has to blink for a little while before being able to boot back up.

Getting very hot after connected for 20-30 minutes


hi there!

are you using original battery for your cellphone? and original charger too? local batteries have that overheat issue. if you are using battery and charger thats both original (if your phone is nokia, your batt and charger should be original nokia aswell), bring the phone to your local technician before you overheat it. if its still in warranty, they can replace either the battery or the unit for you. cellphones do heat up when being charged but if you say its very hot then have it checked by the store or a technician.

It sounds like the Battery is Dead or not charging. You might try a local pc shop and see if they have any laptop batteries for you laptop. Or have them test to see if the battery is charging.

Hi,

It could be that moisture got into the battery terminals. Take a Qtip and wipe the battery terminals inside the phone and also on your battery.

Then try installing the battery again and then hook up the AC charger. Try booting up. I had a cell phone once, it was a Nokia and it did something similar. I had plugged the car charger in while I was in the car and I heard a noise like it shorted. I took the phone to trade it in when I purchased a new Nokia and I noticed that the store clerk had taken my phone that would not boot up and hooked it to an AC charger. It powered up. I still purchased the new phone, but try the AC charger and see what happens. If it powers up, it might be the battery. Let the battery charge for about 4 hours, don't keep it charged overnight. Overnight charging will ruin the battery. If the phone still doesn't work, I'd say bring it in and see if you can get it looked at.

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on but light keeps blinking red


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!

Go to your local carrier store and bring your phone/sim card/battery/and charger...at the store they should have test phones/batteries/chargers...test everything with the agent to determine if you need to replace the phone, battery, or the charger.

Try to switch it on connected to an AC charger, if it switches on , then it is a battery problem. If not, it may be the AC charger, or oxide in the charger contact.

I sugggest also going to a local phone repair shop, and eventually testing a different battery and a charger.
If the battery works, replace it, if it is not the battery or the AC charger, then ask the fee for repair. Usually it is the charger or the battery.

Phone will not charge up


Common problem, I've had countless charging problems with Sony-Ericsson.
Is this USB or Mains charger? Mains charger seems to be more effective. I had a problem with my K800i where it ran-out of battery completely, then when I charged it, the screen would stay white. I would have to keep it there for an hour or so, then take it off, turn it on, then charge it again and it would charge fine.
Another problem I had was with a K750i - the phone would state it was charging, but when you took it off charge, the battery would be low. I think the battery was just old in that one. A new one may have sorted it. I took it to my nearest operator store and they sent it off for repair. It took around 2 weeks and it still wasn't fixed, so I got a W810i as a kind of 'Sorry your phone sucks' free replacement.

So, how old is the phone? the battery may need replacing with new, they're around £10.
You may be able to send it off for repair.
Try a different charger from a friend or local store - just ask!
Try the method I explained for my K800i.
