I purchased my Samsung galaxy 4 approximately 4 months ago and haven't had any problems until now. I went to bed last nigh t with my phone working. The last thing I did prior to going to sleep was to set...

First I would try taking the battery in and out, and maybe even blow where the battery connects to the phone. If that doesn't help, you might have to try buy a new battery, if it is the battery that is dead, though it might not be the problem. I would suggest going to someone who can repair your phone, or where you bought it if you have a guarantee.

I have Xperia X 10 mini from Sony Ericsson. I left it charging overnight as I do every night since I've got it. And today when I woke up, I took the phone and instead of it being fully charged and

Chances are your phone got too hot during the night and overcharged the Lithium Ion battery. If those batteries are exposed to too much heat then they won't have the battery life they used to have. You need to purchase a replacement battery or contact your wireless carrier to see about getting another one.

My cell phone died and now it wont charge!!!! :'(

It won't turn on because battery is too low. Another benefit of lithium ion batteries. When they are depleted, the internal controller / charge circuitry on battery disables it.

You didn't mention what kind of phone other than Motorola. If it has a USB connector to charge through, make sure that you are using a motorola approved charger. There is a way to make the USB connectors (charger side) indicate a particular class and rating. If this doesn't match what the phone expects, then you will likely get a Cannot Charge message or similar.

That being said, this usually only happens with AC wall chargers. I have yet to see it happen with a vehicle charger, though I don't rule it out.

Blackberry bold suddenly shut down

Lots of battery issues with the Bold. Try taking the battery out, keeping it out and connecting to PC with USB. Do any lights come on? Red light should appear. Put battery in while connected to USB.

Another fix that I found for a friend-leave the battery out of the unit for a day-put it in and plug in power cord or USB. It worked.

Phone won't charge or turn on

The battery might not just hold any charge. If you have had this phone for less than a year. I would try to get a replacement from the carrier.

i think the solution to this problem is to let your cellphone go dead
my friend told me today that my d900i was overcharged so thats why it wouldnt charge throught the power outlet
let the battery cell die and than charge it
see if this helps ( i have to try it too , just waiting for my cell to go dead lol)

Phone dead

I am guessing heat can only come from discharging the battery in a non-intentional way. Short circuit or something internal.

Did you plug it into something besides the connector it came with?
An FM transmitter for the iPod killed mine.
Hard reset, wall charging, USB charge, iTunes restore, replaced the battery ... still dead.
Considering how hot it gets, (could be a fire hazard?) surprised Apple doesn't issue a notice or warning.

Caveat emptor, going back to Motorola.
