    The charger is working fine because when I connect it, the phone recognizes that a charger is connected and immediately pops up the screen saying "NOT CHARGING". Previously when I connected the charger it said "CHARGING" but now when I connect it, it gives a beep sound and says "NOT CHARGING".



    I would really appreciate if you help me solve this problem. Its very urgent.



    Thanks.

The charging port on a sidekick 3 is know to go bad. It can run about 100 bux to fix if it is out of warranty.

If it is warranty call T-mobile and get it fixed.

Another solution is to get an external charging cradle and spare battery. Make sure you get a cradle that has the spare battery charging slot. I think it is made by monaco.

You can find them on ebay. Total will run you about 40 dollars.

To where are you connecting the charger?
how old is the charger? maybe the cable its broken in the inside... this usually happens at the ends of the cables or if there is a little bump somewhere..
try connecting them and play with them by moving them a little at the ends.... so there will be better a contact..

Charging problem


1st thing you should check is the charging port. It is not SOLDERED to the board and is only connected by 2 springed prongs. If you are hand, open the phone real carefully and gently bend the contacts forward. Also take a pencil eraser and wipe the contact connections on the phone. Then put your phone back together and see if it works. Good luck

Battery Wont Charge


either the battery is drained so its not getting charged. remove the battery from the cell and check out.or the charger is faulty so need to replace the charger.sometimes pressing the pin of charger in to the cell gets connected internally and the charging starts try it.other wise that two above things need to be checked.
