Question about Samsung Instinct Cell Phone

1 Answer

My samsung instinct is not charging properly. I plug it in with my charger and the charging screen appears for less than a 30 seconds then goes to my background display. I have tried using my car charger and the same thing happens. It wont' charge past 70%. I have not dropped my phone, gotten my phone wet or done any damage whatsoever. In fact, I'm very careful with my phone and keep it in a case at all times. This has been going on for about 5 days. What do you suggest?

Look inside the charge port to see if there is anything from the charger inside that my have broken off by accident. that is very common with the instinct and the m300 as they use the same style charger. you may need to just replace the charger. and if the phone is in fact broken, sprint has an insurance plan that will get you a new one for free or for 50 bucks depending on the policy

Mini 1012. new battery. charger led working, battery wont charge. when plugged in charger works for about 30 seconds


Seems like you may have purchased the incorrect battery or they shipped you one that is NOT for your unit, if you purchased an "aftermarket" battery this could be the issue. Not saying aftermarket parts are bad, they are just massed produced and sometimes you get a bad one. Return it for refund or replacement. Try E-Bay for a reseller for this product, much less cost.

The charger slot on the phone does not work when plugged in, think it needs a new port


Hello,

Why don't you use the charger to charge a similar phone or use a similar charger aside yours to charge your phone to see if it is the charger or the charging port.

If your charger charges a similar phone as yours, it means the charging port of your phone is bad.

But if it does not, the charger is the problem.

If it is the charging port, all you need to do is to replace the charging port and your phone will charge.

Take care.

Samsung flight quit charging


Try charging the phone until it has finished charging.connect the charger and charge for 2.5 hours.
The battery icon on the screen may not appear for 30 mins.

You can also go to a dealers and ask to try a new battery, or and a different charger.
If none of the above work ring your network supplier and ask for a replacement phone.

I took the phone off the charger one day and it wont power on


Then its the motherboard inside the phone where the charging port connects. It costs about 150-200 to fix unless you have sprint insurance. This happens if the phone is accidentally dropped JUST wrong still plugged into the charger, or if the charger is taken out JUST wrong and sideways or crooked. On a plus side, it is a common thing for a lot of phones and it is fixable by a technician.
