SOURCE: How Can I Take Apart My Samsung SCH-u740?

To take off housing, you need to pry off plastic piece on end just above camera lens. Then you have to remove one philips screw. After that, you can pry case open. I use a tool that they sell to replace Ipod batteries.

SOURCE: Won't Charge! :-(

Hi. these situations are mostly caused by a bent or broken copper prong that is located within the input charger port that is inside the phone housing.

When you insert the charge cord into the input port, there are copper prongs that will have to connect to each other and , this contact point will transfer the necessary current to the cell for a proper charge.

If the prongs are damage in any way due to broken copper or, bent copper prongs, this will prevent the necessary current from flowing to the cell.

Most remedies are crude like using a tooth pick or paper clip to straighten out the prongs inside the port. these methods do more harm than good and i recommend sending this phone in for a input port transplant. the manufacture or local repair depot is the best repair solution for this situation.

There is one thing that i would do before sending it to the repair depot. try using a completely different battery cell. if you purchase a new battery and the charger continues to not charge, this will confirm the input port failure.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: charger port on LG shine broke.

It could be either your charger is broken or the charging port in the phone is- I would recommend taking it to a store and have them check it out for you.

My zte maven won't turn on or charge

If your chargers a loose in the phone, that a part in your charging port broke off and it is cheaper to buy another Maven.

Make sure it is not your charger by using other ones to charge.

Remove the battery and plug the charger in, if your phone works without the battery then you need a new battery

Take the battery out for 10 seconds and put it back in, now try charging it.

If non of these options work for you, then your phone is most likely defective and it would be best to look into another phone. The good news is that if you get another Go-Phone or any other AT&T phone, all you need to do is take your sim card out and put it into the new phone to activate it. This means the phone will work right away and you will be able to keep your remaining air time and phone number.

How do I fix a cellphone that won't charge at all when it is plugged in. I've tried turning it off, taking the battery out, and everything.

It could be a problem with the female usb port on your phone. Try shining a light inside where you plug it in and see if there is anything there. Here are a few phones with the female ports where you plug in your charger.
25894004-w32j5maowckw4u0pbavragxd-2-0.png Use something like a toothpick to clean out inside there. If you use something too hard, it can damage the inside of the port.

If there is nothing in there, it could be the cord. Have you tried multiple cords and cubes (wall adapters)? Here is the iPhone version, but really all that changes is the business end of the charging cord, so it still applies.
25894004-w32j5maowckw4u0pbavragxd-2-1.jpg If you have tried multiple combinations of cords and wall adapters, then it might be that the charging port on your phone is broken and needs repairing. A sign of this being the case could be the cable being able to wiggle around too much when plugged into the phone.

If these other solutions do not work, you may need to replace the female micro/mini usb port in your phone, which could be above your skill set and you may need to hire a professional, or someone who knows their way around a soldering iron.
