I had the same phone. My port was the problem and I battled U.S Cellular telling them this phone is a lemon and they need to do something about it. I ended up getting the Galaxy S 4 Mini. It is much much better. I would bring it to your carrier right away and tell them what happened. That the ports in this particular model are faulty not the users of the phone. And see what they can do for you. If you do not have a carrier where you can have them see then I recommend buying another battery and a battery charger to plug into the wall along w/ the battery. Amazon.com has great deals on them. I hope this helps and good luck.

No, you need to take it to a tech, or get a replacement phone. Kinda sucks, but that's the only way to do it. If you have insurance you may be in luck to get a replacement for free.

SOURCE: my samsung galaxy pro GT-B7510 battery Not getting charged by Charger and only by USB cable and power lossing immediately i remove cable, how can i solve ??

Check the mains power adapter with a multimeter. Plug the adapter into the wall mains socket and then measure the voltage on the adapter plug, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the adapter. If you get a low reading or zero reading the the charging adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

It charges somtmes but only 26% now it wont charge and wont turn on i have changed cords and plugs nothing works please help


1. is there lint or some pants pocket debris or dirt inside the charging port on the bottom of the phone? use something non metal that won't break inside, it needs to be thin enough to move around and poke around the bottom, not interfering with the chip that sticks out.

charges-somtmes-but-only-26-now-wont-c42sdu52tip34gjoftdmfcql-4-0.png before you do that.. turn off the phone and take out the battery just in case. you don't want to short the charging port, so why risk it.

you can use a thin side wooden tooth pick (not the thick rounded ones, they won't fit), or you can use an unused plastic brush tooth pick that's available at most stores like Walgreens, CVS, Safeway, etc..

2. If nothing comes out, try using a different wall charger adapter that works for your Samsung device. Many cell phones use a 3volt charger that won't work with Samsung smartphones because Galaxy phones need a 5volt charger. The others will just trickle charge it or may not work at all. Also, the cord itself. You can't just use any micro USB charging cable. You need to use one that can push enough electricity to your device. So it has to be a Samsung smartphone compatible one. If you have ruled this out..

3. Is the wall outlet bad? Try a different wall outlet. Example: at the airport we tried all the wall outlets in the same area, none of those charged the device. We thought it could be the charging cable or the adapter that was dead. Then we went to another area in the airport and tried again. This time we were charging the phone fine. Cable and charging adapter were apparently working great.

4. If that's not it.. what happens when you try jiggling the charging cable connected to the phone.. try angling the cable head to the left or right.. does it only charge when in a specific position? it could be the charging cable or the charging port that needs fixing..

5. If that was not the case, and everything you've tried doesn't work, it could just be the charging port on the phone is bad. Bring it to your local cellular repair shop. It should cost around $35 to $50 to fix.

6. If your phone is not worth it to fix it, it might be a better idea to buy a newer model phone. If you can't afford another phone or to fix the port, why not just buy a separate battery wall charger. You can buy a cheap China version to charge your existing battery outside of the phone and then just pop the fully charged battery in when you need to use the phone. I'd recommend charging the battery when you are sleeping.

Samsung galaxy s2 will not charge


Could be a battery problem, ut is usually a problem with the charge cable or connector. Try a different charge cable, they are usually Micro USB connectors, and check if the power (MaH) Matches what your phone needs. Otherwise you might need to repair the port. Try this.

My galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it


Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not holding....is it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

Samsung Galaxy S2 S95G will not charge


Usually this lack of charging is a faulty mini usb connector inside the SII phone or maybe the mini USB plug on the end of charger cable. If you have a friend with a working SII use their phone to verify your battery or try their good battery in your phone. This will confirm it' s a charging / battery issue.
Not sure if you did this:A workaround for a faulty mini USB conn. in the SII would to be to buy a new battery and an external battery charger with battery holder stand. Charge batteries in the stand and change the charged batteries over into the Galaxy SII as needed.

Galaxy tab p1010 not charging


Hi!Maybe this will work:1. Try a different charger.2. Connect it to a pc to see if that can charge your tablet (if this is working, it means that your charger is the problem)3. If none of the above works, then is the battery or the device itself that don't function properly and you should go to check it on a autorized service shop.
Hope this will help you!
Have a nice day!

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 e900 wont turn on or charge


most likely your charger port is damaged, if you try another charger and get the same thing- then I am sorry but the phone is finished. warranty does not cover damaged ports, but if you have the insurance it is covered under damage, if its lless than a 30 day old problem. If you replace it with the same phone, discard any chargers you used on the old one.
