Try updating the software. Start by backing up anything you wish to keep like media or special messages and then update to next version of software. Where the software is up to date, cgeck online for reports of similare cases with thos happening for any other people with the same model or software version. Failing that it could be the connecters in the phone that are faulty that rattling the phone round a random way would cause the battery separate from the connecters and cause this to happen. Your service provider should be able to tell you straight away if there is a warranty that can cover the phone for a service to correct this issue.

SOURCE: Phone turns off spontaneously

There is a multitude of problems that could be causing this. first of course try the master reset and master clear functions on your phone. if you don't know how to do this in your settings menu try *2767*3855#. If this doesn't help try a new battery. If this still doesn't fix it reply to this with what happened with the above and I'll help further

SOURCE: my phone doesnt charge

Your phone doesn't charge? or does not hold a charge?

If the battery meter is not running when ur charger is plugged in, it could be a charging port problem or a battery problem. Go to a nearby shop to have someone try another battery & to determine if that is a battery or a phone problem. If it's the battery then buy a new one. if it's the phone, have a Samsung tech repair it for you

My laptop says "plugged in and not charging" or "unknown remaining" when not plugged in. It shuts off anywhere from 1-20 minutes when I unplug it, despite it being plugged in for a long time.


The 2 most common causes are either the power supply (the brick part) or the battery itself. If you can find another power supply to try that will tell you if that's the issue. The battery could easily be the issue if it's over 6 months old and has been plugged in often.

IPhone 4S shuts off randomly.


download itools get the latest one in the software there is system check crash report have a look on that it will tell you everything your phone is not doing, also when you install a new battery make sure the battery is flat, the screen should of come up with red line some batteries have charge in them and this can confuse the phone, another thing you can do is backup phone and do dfu setup, ios 8 sometimes has a problem and will need to be reinstalled new only do this in dfu mode, connect phone to pc etc and hold down the power button and home when the screen goes blank count to 6 seconds and then release the power button but hold down the home button for about 10 seconds or longer or until you hear the pc beep and install the dfu drivers. itunes will say that the phone needs updating do that, when finished don't do the setup , leave it for a few minutes then turn off phone leave off for 6 seconds then turn back on and continue with the setup it should be fine then, failing this and it still does this then the charging chip needs to be replaced, this is not a job for the layman need to be done professionally. hope this helps.

I have Samsung 6272 when I charged the phone is full after 5 minuts I change the batter and charge but m problem not soluve ?


The very first charging-time of the battery should most-usually last 6-8 Hrs , and if you did not do the same i suggest you drain your battery to the bottom until it turns off by itself , then plug in the charger and leave it charging for 8 hours (meanwhile the phone should be turned off ) . should be fine after ;D

(in case you did everything as you should and encountered this problem long time after you using the phone , all you can do is replace the battery)

Auto Shutdown Samsung GALAXY S4


Did it start over or just died for you? I noticed that my S4 was starting over all the time although it was in my pocket and I didn't touch it. But I figured that I have some option to automatically download updates, and when it does, it restarts itself. Hope this may be a help for you?

I turns itself of randomly


It sounds like your battery is broken. If you've used your phone 'till it blackout (if you don't charge it) couple of times the battery dies. But you can buy a new battery for about 3,5 dollars! Here's the cheapest ones on eBay: link
I hope you'll find out something ;-)

Short Battery life, Randomly shuts down, and more...


sounds like the battery is shot. Get a new battery and fully charge it. I try to charge my phone more off of a power outlet and not the cigarette lighter in a auto. The battery will last longer that way. something about cigarette lighters. As far as the messaging and failed calls goes. up grade your tower signals. contact your cell phone company and get the number for upgrading the towers.

Acer Aspire 9300-3655: Shuts Downs When Idle


does it just shut down randomly? and then when you turn it back on it shuts down nearly straight away? if so then it sounds like the processor is overheating and as a saftey mechanism it shuts down. which could be a big problem.

or you just need a new battery. because you are supposed to only charge it when it is dead. if you keep it on charge and plug it into the mains randomly,then the battery will eventually lose it capacitence (basically how much charge it can hold) and then it wont last long atall. you want to hope its the battery.

hope this helps.

Scanner turning itself on and off??


I do not think u should try to fix it as it would void the warranty since your scanner is only 8 months old. Get it fixed by returning it to the vendor.
