My galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it


Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not holding....is it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

Wont power on


Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

I just replaced my laptop battery - BATBL50L6. My charge light flashes orange. Win7 says plugged in, not charging. shows 0%. I tried reinstalling the ACPI battery monitor in DM.


try putting the old battery back in and see if you get the same problem. Also check where the chargers plug goes into the laptop. If it fits loosely your charger port needs replacing.

Batterey wont charge, charging port real loose. Is


If the charger port is already loose and the battery doesnt accept charge anymore then you have to replace the motherboard of the laptop. Port cannot be replaced individually,you have to replace the whole part for this issue.You can contact the manufacturer of your system and if it is in warranty then they will replace it for you.Try to check the charger/ac adapter make sure no part is damaged aswell...cheers!!!

On the exterior of my laptop where the battery power adapter plugs into the laptop the power cord wont go in to it?


Check that there isn't something jambed into the charger plug itself. When it fits into the charger port, most ports have a power pin running down the middle of them. The opening in the middle of the charger plug runs over that power pin. If the pin has broken off the power port or has been bent over, it will keep the plug from entering. Also, on the sides of the power ports there is a small strip of metal that touches the charger plug when it enters the port. Make sure that these are not sticking out too far to keep the plug from entering. I would check to make sure that the charge plug is not plugged up.
