Question about LG Cell Phones

Open Question

The charging cable to my LG G5 will not stay in the port on the phone without holding it in or placing an object on it to hold it in. What could have caused this & is there a fix?

The Lg G5 is less than a year old with no apparent damage to the port, phone or charging cable. It is the original USB-C that came with the phone. Other charging cables have similar results.

To Synchronise the Phone with the PC you must go to "connectivity" and set the USB Connection on the phone to Data Service and use the LG Sync. software. To transfer files such as photos videos or music, set to -Mass storage- and use windows explorer to Drag & drop. it's easy.

Dr Know, doesn't know what he's talking about. I have a LG KF750 and have experienced the same problem.

Solution - Really jam the cable into the socket! The connection is pretty rubbish. The phone charging icon will (with some force and wiggling) appear on screen. Then carefully put it down and don't touch it!

USB charges very slowly, if charging from a dead flat battery it may take a good 20mins of charging to boot up.

P.S. the red camera light is not supposed to come on when charging. Keep wiggling the cable and the light will go off when the phone charging icon appears.

Battery won't hold charge


Hello,

The reason your phone is not holding a charge is simply because there is a problem with the terminal head.

The terminal head is malfunctioning and is not charging the battery.

To fix the terminal head,
  1. After removing your back cover and battery, remove the screws you see.
  2. With the screws removed you can now remove the battery compartment.
  3. With the battery slot removed you have access to the terminal head.
  4. it is the metallic sheets that rests on the head of the battery when inserted into the phone.
  5. Get a pin tip soldering iron and disconnect the terminal head from the green panel you will see,
  6. replace it with a new terminal head.
  7. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.


Another fault might be the charger or the charging port,

To test if it is the charger,

Try to use the same charger on another phone to see if it will work,

If it does not work then it is the charger.

To test if it is the charging port,

Test a well tested okay charger on the phone to see if it will work.

If it does not then the problem is the charging port and to change it
you follow the procedure of of changing the terminal but you have to disconnect the screen and the remove the charging port and replace it with another new one.

take care

Hello,

It is not your battery, as far it is charging when you get the right spot at the charging port.

I advice you change your charging port because it is glaring it cannot hold your charger firmly anymore that why you have to all through the stress of locating where it will charge at the charging port.

Just replace the charging port, you will see it will charge without you holding it.

To confirm that your battery is still very good, you can remove it and place in another phone, if it charge, it means it is good.

Please also try to use the charger to charge another similar phone to see if it will giving you such problem because it could also be that the charger is bad.

Take care.

My phone will not hold a charge at all. I've taken the battery out, let it set, put it back in for a few minutes and still no charge. The longest the phone lasts without dying is 10 minutes


Hello

Remove the battery and test it with a similar phone to ee if it will hold charges, if it does, it means the battery is good, but if otherwise change the battery.

Next place to look at is the charging port, check with a similar battery and charger to see if it will charge, if it doesnt, change the charging port.

Also test your charger with another similar phone to see if it will charge, if it does, it means the charger is good.

Best regards.

Not much you can do, it needs to either be replaced or you can have it reheated and soldered back into place on the mainboard of the phone.

My env2 wont charge. whenever i plug it in, the battery stays the same. what do i do?


This seems to be a common problem for the env2. If you hold your charger a certain way in the phone does it charger? Is the charger port broken or damaged?

If so the easiest workaround is to get an external battery charger and extra battery to charge the phone.

Check out the following link for information on the battery charger and other options for the env2 charge issue.
