My phone will not take a charge or power up

Confirm that the charging port is working (it may have cable connection issue, and have to be place in a certain position to charge), If the port is fine, then figure if battery is bad.. If charging port is bad, its a relatively easy and cheap fix.

Battery will not charge

You need to post a lot more information for a solution to be given. Have you tried a different battery and the result is the same? What about another charger?

For this particular model and the problem you describe the most common solution would be to change the charging port. The part is cheap ( is my usual supplier) but the installation is not easy so you are likely to be better off buying the part and then taking the phone to a cell phone store with proper tools to fix the charging port.

HOWEVER, although the problems listed before are the most common by far (bad charging port, bad battery, bad charger) There is also a chance the problem is in the mainboard. Certain circuits within the mainboard can get damaged (water damage or phisical damage would be the most common way) and they would make the battery not charge. Because the charging port is cheap, I would still try to replace it but keep this in mind as it could be something else.

My nokia 5320 ran out of charge the other day i tried to charge it up but it would not accept charge.


First thing to do is to charge the phone with another charger, if the phone charge it means the charger is bad, if not it means the charging port is bad.

You can also try the phone with another battery and charge the battery to know if the battery is not the problem.

The charging port is easy to fix and very cheap to buy. Go to the phone accessories shop and tell them you need your NOKIA port. Get a screw driver, unscrew the screw, open the phone and replace the charging port with the one you just bought.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

Sounds like your charging port has gone bad. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 3-5 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

Hope it helps!

W995 port doesn't work

Since the port of your phone works as the charging port and headphone port, it means the charging i.c. is bad. Invariably, you have to change the charging i.c. of the phone by taking it to a technician since you cannot do it yourself.
Alternatively i will advice you to buy a universal/desktop charge for you battery and suspend the use of your headphone till you fix the port.

My lg vu will not charge

There are 2 possible problems you are having. You charger is going bad as evidenced by th cable going bad. Take it to a carriers store and try a different charger.

The other issue may be the charging port is going bad. Having to tape the charger may be an indication of that.

Try a different charger first but if that is not the problem check out the following link for ways to fix the charge port on your LG VU
