Question about Samsung Instinct Cell Phone

Open Question

Phone blinks on and off when plugged into the wall. Please help.

Hello! I'm very sorry to bother you, but I'm having some big problems with my Sprint Instinct phone. I'm not sure how to fix it, so I'm asking you. Everytime I plug my phone into the wall and into the charger, it immediately starts blinking on and off. I've tried other wall outlets, but no matter what I do, it still is a problem. It has been doing this for a good month or two and I currently am without a phone right now. I need your assistance ASAP, please. Thank you for listening. Please help me figure out this problem.

Why wont my motorola photon q phone charge or power up...no green light comes on at all


Your charge cord may fit, but it may not be configured to your phone. I just bought a new Nexus phone that has the same charge port as my older Galaxy 4s phone. The Nexus charge plug fits into the Galaxy 4s charge port with no problems but does not charge after plugged into outlet. But the older charge cord will work with the new Nexus charging wise but data transfer will not work. So you may have a charge cord that plugs into phone, but may be configured differently due to phone manufacturer. Hope this helps.

My LG Viper phone just stopped working,


Mine does this often. Sometimes it's so dead that it has to blink for a little while before being able to boot back up.

WANT TO UNLOCK RAZORV3 TO WORK WITH SPRINT


the only reason that its not working is because Sprint locks their SIM cards so that you cannot use them on any other carriers. but it is possible. all you have to do is take the phone to AT&T and have them flash the phone to AT&T. another reason it won't work is because sprint is CDMA service, and AT&T is iDEN network and GSM. they aren't compatible. so you are unable to use the sprint SIM card in the AT&T phone. i am sorry.

Fusic lg phone by sprint I need help!


I'm a bit late here. Lots of people with this problem. See the link at the bottom of this solution.

Some things they suggest:
1) Take the battery and memory card (if you use one) out of the phone.
2) With these removed, press the power button as if you were turning it on.
3) Wait at least 30 minutes.
4) Reinstall the battery and plug in the phone, but DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON.
5) Wait another 30 minutes.
6) Keeping it plugged in, see if it will turn on.

If it turns on, let it finish charging. You can reinsert your memory card a few minutes after it starts up.

If it doesn't turn on, you'll need to head to a store or call up Sprint about repair/replacement.

LG Rumor Screen


I'm sorry. This isn't an issue that you will be able to solve yourself. The problem lies with the ribbon cable in the phone. You see the ribbon cable wears down causing the phone to "garble" or white out and will need to be replaced which can only be done at a repair center. This problem shouldn't cost you anything even if you don't have insurance or a service plan because this is a LG and Sprint known issue.

Installing a 2GB PNY Micro SD Card


Hello,

Only the Sprint version of this phone supports memory cards over 1 Gigabyte. Sorry. But if you have a Sprint phone comment back to me using the comment box below. Thanks.

If you don't have a Sprint phone you need to acquire a 1GB card and use that. Hold on to your 2GB card as it will be usable when you upgrade at the end of your contract period.

Sony KP57WS510 Blinking 8 times


You have a strt up problem. I found, in a similiar Sony Big Screen a couple of fixes. First thing to try is unplug the set from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in and retry the set. If this corrects the problem, I suggest you purchase a good ( Not a 5 dollar piece of junk) surge protector. ( One rated at 500-1500 joules. A good surge protector may prevent future processor lock ups. If this doesn't correct the problem, the problem lies in the circuit boards of the set. I found one problem in a Sony like you describe had a bad convergence chip and a burned resistor in the same board. Good Luck

Sanyo 8100


I am soo sorry for you. You have locked your phone and forgotten the code. Not a good thing, sprint and all cellphone companies have regulations meaning that password cannot be retrieved ever. There is no way to access that information so you will need to either go in or call in and get your phone hard reset. You will lose everything but you will have access to your phone again. I am sorry for you but remember the lock code in the future or don't lock it at all. Hope that helps :)
