Question about Samsung A501 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My Samsung A501 has stopped charging but I don't know if it's the battery or the charger. I can't find any store who still sells the charger so it's a bit difficult to diagnose. I wasn't having any problems with the battery holding charge prior to it not charging.

My samsung galaxy 3 is not taking charge.I bought a new battery and it Charged for the man at the battery store.I tried everything.Are there any other solutions new or old to try?

Did the battery store use your 'wall wart' AC charger and cable or one of the store's? Your AC charger might be bad, or the connector/charge cable could be bad. Take the phone back to the battery store and have them check your AC charger and cable.

How to charge samsung lumix dmc fs16 without charger

You can try plugging in the usb cable to your laptop, or any usb port really but the documentation is unclear whether that will actually charge the battery.

Really the only other really viable option is to find a camera shop, walgreens or tech store that could possibly carry the charger, or at least a spare battery.

My samsung F480i keeps on turning off..what should i do???

That is a phone, you are asking in a forum for shavers. I might be able to still answer it though.

keeps turning off? If it is charged and still doing that, buy a new battery. when lithium batteries get old they dont hold a charge anymore. People think their phone is broke when they just need a new battery. Make sure you try it at the store just in case that doesnt solve it.

Whatever you do...don try to shave with it.

Charger is not workking


Sometimes, the power supply to the charger might be too high or too low hereby resulting in damaging the charger. I will advice you test the charger on another phone before you conclude that the charger is bad. Once You have confirmed that. The only solution is to replace the charger. Once you have confirmed that the problem the problem is from the charger. Then You test the battery and the phone to know where the problem is from.

To test the battery,
  1. Power off the phone,
  2. Remove the battery,
  3. Insert it in another phone,
  4. Try to charge it with another charger,
If it charges, then it means the battery is working, but if it does not, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.

Further test the phone,
  1. Insert a well tested battery into the phone,
  2. Plug a well tested charger into the phone to see if it will charge,
If it does not charge, then it means the connection port is bad and if it does charge, then it means the problem is not from the phone.

Before the end of the of the tests, You will have detected the problem and the solution to any of it is to replace it.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

DUR-7 charging problem

Are you sure it is not the charger itself at fault here?

If you have or know someone with a multimeter get them to check if any voltage is present on the charger plug of the cord. Batteries do not suddenly stop they usually give less and less time in uptime mode before they finally stop altogether. I would suspect the charger or charging circuit.yes it can be fixed

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Samsung u740 wont charge anymore

Bad battery, you can get one pretty cheap off of for like 3 or 4 bucks, as far as using a generic charger, I never heard of that before, if you know someone with the same phone, ask yhem to use the battery for a second, and try to charge your phone.

Cell phone not responding to charger


This is not a fix per se, but if you feel it gets you a rock solid answer go ahead and rate it otherwise, please don't bother to rate this. I'm just giving your some guideance.

You phone in question needs replacement as there is a clear malfunction. You can call your provider or go to the phone store. You shouldn't have any problem having it replaced. They may even offer to upgrade you to a Razor or some such higher end model if its better than yours.

Best Regards,
