SOURCE: galaxy prevail wont power up or charge

It is possible that the phone has hung up becausethere are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memorycard from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt filesor media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafesites. If so remove or format the card. Copy only valid files to the card anddo a scan before it is replaced. Now replace the card and battery and switch onthe phone. If the phone hangs up or is slow when it is switched ON , then it ispossible that the fault is relative tothe software and will need a reinstallation. Possible hardware issue cannot beruled out.

All you need to do is shut down your device, remove the battery if possible and use something small, such as a toothpick, to 'lever up' the little tab inside the USB port on your smartphone or tablet. Do so very carefully and gently, then reinsert your battery and plug it in again.

  1. Turn the phone off.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Plug in the charger.
  5. Insert the battery.
  6. Turn on the phone.

A samsung galaxy player 3.6 that wont turn on

The charger has a function that restores the battery operation parameters by discharging then charging the battery a number of times. Refer to charging instructions in the pack but I think the cycle is a 3 hourly one, time to charge from a full discharge. If the charger thinks the battery is dead then it will try to recover the battery using this process. You may have left the charger on long enough to charge then also discharge the battery.
Start again and charge for the time in the instructions ONLY, if you are not sure of the time try it for an hour, then without disconnecting the charger turn the unit on and take particular note of any screen messages, if any.
You should be able to continue as normal now, but still be aware of the time you are leaving the charger connected for, as it may take some time before it returns to normal operation and stops trying to recover what it thinks is a dead battery.
