My old one did that, i researched it and talked to my friends who had had them too and apparently its a pretty common problem if you take it to thestore they'll tell you its either water damage or your port is rusty i finally gave up when my second chocolate did the same thing so i got a universal charger. you take out the abttery and put it in the thing that goes into an outlet. it works and your phone will hold charge longer but you do have to turn it off and put it in. hope i helped =)

Either the charger port on the phone is faulty or the charger itself. Try a different charger if you can and if this works, the dock is faulty, if it doesn't then its the phone. Pretty simple repair and most Treo repair centres will be able to do it.

Why your phone won't charge


<span>Hello,<br /><br />there are three or more reason why your your phone won't charge;<br /><br />1. The charger might be defective.<br />2. The charging port of the phone might be defective.<br />3. The battery cell might be very weak or the battery might be defective.<br /><br />Charger<br /><br />A defective charge can cause a phone not to charge. To actually find out if your charger is defective or not, borrow a charger from a family or friend that has the type of your phone, use the borrowed charger to on your phone. If the the phone charges, then obviously, your charger is defective and need to be replaced. It is also good to test your charger on another phone to confirm the status of the charger.<br /><br />Make sure you run the above test, before buying another charger so that you don't waste your money. Sometimes, charger might be working and phone won't charge due to some other reasons that would be discussed below. So confirm first before buying another charge. Don't buy another charged based on assumptions........<br /><br />Battery<br /><br />A battery that is very flat, I mean a battery that its cell is very weak, won't charge with a phone charger. You might have to leave the battery in the phone with the charge plugged in for some minutes or hours before the battery will begin to charge and other times, it might not charge at all.<br /><br />What make batteries to be in this kind of condition is; <br /><br />1. If you use you phone to the point when it says "low battery" and you still don't charge the battery and the phone turns off by itself. This can run down a battery cell.<br />2. If you leave a battery in the phone idle for a days or months, the battery cell will become weak. Or if you leave a battery used for days or months.<br />3. If you don't use the correct/right charger for your phone, this can drain the battery instead of charging it.<br /><br />Batteries in such condition will have to be fast charged with a desktop charger. The desktop charger will be connected directly to the battery and the battery will definitely pick up within 1 hour. Thereafter, you can continue charging it with your phone charger and it will charge immediately.<br /><br />But if the battery is defective, it won't charge at all. Even if you use a desktop charger. Such batteries needs to be replaced. Also, it is good to test the phone with another battery, and charge it to confirm before buying another battery.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what a desktop charger looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_4.jpg" /><img src="walesarumi_3.jpg" /><br /><br />Charging port<br /><br />If non of the above seems to be the reason why your phone won't charger, then it means the charging port is defective. <br /><br />Most times defective charging port confuses people. They think the charger is the reason why their phone won't charge and after using another charger on their phone they still find out that the does still does not charge.<br /><br />Once your phone doesn't charge, the first this you test is the charger and second, the battery. But if the battery and charger seems not to be the cause of the problem, then it is the charging port that is cause the problem.<br /><br />Your charging port might not be defective, maybe it loosed contact with the phone phone or it shifted from it's position. Sometimes, the way we forcefully insert our charger into the phone can make the charging port loose contact.<br /><br />At this point, you will have to disassemble your phone. But if you feel it is a task you cannot perform yourself, then take the phone to a repairman to help you out. But if you feel you can do it yourself (DIY), read further.<br /><br />Turn off the phone. Remove the battery. After that, get a phone screw driver, unscrew all the phone screws, remove the phone cover in order to gain access to the phone panel and get to the charging port. <br /><br />Check if the charging port actually loosed contact. If it didn't loose contact, then you will have to replace the charging port. <br /><br />Note that some charging port are soldered to the phone board and some are not. So if yours is not soldered, simply remove the charging port and make a replacement. But if is soldered, you will be needing a rework station. Rework station is what you will use to remove the charging port.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what the rework station looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_5.jpg" /> <img src="walesarumi_6.jpg" /><br /><br />I hope the above makes sense to you.......<br /><br />Good luck.<br /></span>

My phone wont charge i always have to put it in a different position too get it too charge wats wrong with it?


Hi, there are two things you will need to test for ,

The charger and the charging port.

The charger of the phone might not be contacting properly causes it to fail or loose contact, that might be the reason it needs to be position properly before it charges.

You can use another charger to see how firm it will on another phone, so that you can be able to know if you will need to replace the charger with another one.

The charger port is where you plug in the charger to the phone for the phone to be able to charge.
Sometimes if the charging port is weak,itmight not be able to hold the charger properly,it will be failing contact.

Also you can use another charger to test with your phone and see how firm it holds on the phone and if it will charge the phone without failing.

I guess when you test for the charger and the charging port, problem will be solved.

Feel free to pass your comment.

Thanks for using fixya....

When I plug in the charger it wont charge Im not getting like unauthorized charger message it just wont charge


Hello,

I advice you try get a similar charger to charge your phone, if the similar charges your phone, it means your charger is bad and will need to get another charger or the phone.

But if it did not charge and you still get the same message, it means the charging port on your phone is the problem, the charging port on your phone is bad and can not read the charger, so you will need to replace or change the charging port on your phone. Doing thi will solve the problem on your phone.

Take care.

When I put in the charger for my Samsung phone, it says "Charging stop" when I put the phone down. Why?


Your charger is probably loose or not fitting into the port correctly. After you put it down, wiggle it and see if the "charging stop" disappears.

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.

Motorola razr2 v9m wont charge


My guess is that the charging port in your phone has gone bad. By holding it a certain way, you may be reconnecting it just enough to make the connection. Probably have a loose or broken wire inside your phones port. You may also see this is a problem if you try to hook it up to a pc.

Not charging N1100


i think the charging port might have damaged or the charging IC is gone ...

just give a try with the other charger ...

if the charging port is gone then you replace the port with the new one ...

if the charging IC is gone you must get the new one and solder it ....

just have a check after opening the handset check whether is there any loose contact inside near the charging port ...

make sure of which type of problem you have and then taking the necessary steps ..

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye ....
