Car Charger Won't Charge, And Phone Doesn't Work In Most Areas, In The Woods, Northern CA

I don't know where to go from here. The works fine, if I'm in the right area, but I can't charge it in my van. The cigarette lighter works, but not the charger. I don't want to buy another and I don't know what the problem is. I'm thinking about getting a CB radio, in case I need roadside assistance. Donna

Re: Car Charger Won't Charge, And Phone Doesn't Work In...

Most car chargers have a fuse in them usually 2amp.
it is possible this fuse has blown.
if you can unscrew the end of your charger you will find the fuse
BE CAREFULL the tip is spring loaded and will shot apart so make sure yoou keep it under control

My htc incredible s won't charge, I've tried

It sounds like the charging port on your phone is broken. This could have happened a number of ways. Either by dropping your phone, putting the charger in wrong, or taking it out wrong. If you call HTC(866-449-8358) and it is still under warranty they will probably fix it for free as long as it doesn't have any water damage( Otherwise you could also get a new phone.

Motorola cellular w376g, battery won't charge

If possible test with another charger like a car charger if you have one
also try removing the battery plug in the charger and put the battery back in (don't touch the contacts/gold pins)

if it works with other chargers then the charger is bad

if it doesn't work with other chargers charging port/battery/phone is bad

The battery doesn't work fine

If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My SCH-a930 won't charge. I still have battery life, and the phone works fine, but the phone won't charge. I have tried multiple wall outlets. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Please, try using another charger with the phone.
If the problem continues, get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and bring the charging port out. The charging port is at the tail end of the phone.
Clean the surface of the panel where the charging port contact the panel with a spirit and allow it to dry for 30 minute. Couple back the phone and i am sure the charging phone will work fine.

My motoriola defy phone wont charge it has been at 0% charge all morning.

Hello and welcome to FixYa;

Take out battery, clean off the battery and gently clean off the terminals. Put battery back in and try to charge again with your charger. If this doesn't help;

Try another charger to the phone such as a car charger if you have one. If the battery still will not charge;

you may need to get another battery. I suggest you go into your local service provider first, have them use one of their spare batteries that fit into your phone model and see if the battery will start charging.

If it doesn't, you need to have your phone itself looked at instead of the battery.

Try these steps before you spend money on replacing parts needlessly.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Wont charge

Try a car charger. If the car charger works, then it is either
A) Your power outlet
B) Your wall charger Power Supply unit
C) The phone connector on your wall charger.

If it doesn't work on the car charger, then it is most likely your phone charging system or the connection for charging on your phone. Either way, you will most likely need a new phone. Sorry.

3 Home chargers wont work on Motorola SLVR L7, but the car charger does?!

Only thing I can think is if your house has wall A/C units they are notorious for blowing up the transformers in the AC adapters.

Have you checked them with a multimeter to verify that there is voltage coming thru them?

Best of Luck.
