My battery doesnt hold a charge even when the battery is full it only last a couple hours,im forever charging it,and it turns its self off.

Hi, most causes of battery cell running down very fast is because the problem is not from the battery, but from the cell phone it self.

Some times a phone will just start malfunctioning due to when something happens to a phone earlier and no action was taking during that particular period in time, it might make the cell phone to malfunction later on.

The problem of the phone is an IC chip inside on the board of the cell phone that has been damaged that is making the battery cell to discharge.
You will need to replace the IC inside the phone.

The more you don't repair the IC on time inside the phone,you will keep on buying more batteries.

To fix or replace the damaged IC, you can contact an expert on phone repair for's a little bit technical to handle.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

My lg chocolate 3 keep saying i need to use a genuine battery when i never changed the battery and it won't turn on.I'm not even sure if it will charge.

Sorry to say this you have to replace the battery.your battery is same but the level of charge amount it emits to the phone is abnormal so it says
"use a genuine battery".....the level is low or high.....

please rub the q-tip of your battery so some times corrosion may cause it...
the +ions and -ions of the battery is spoiled inside the battery.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Nokia 5230 problem - the phone turns on okay, but then does not respond to screen or key touches. I've taken the battery out and replaced it again, but it keeps happening. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Nokia has stopped the production of his phone recently because battery issues and stated manufacturing nokia 5233. Please walk into Nokia showroom and get it checked they will help as phone comes with one year warranty.

When turned on says "Use genuine battery" and when try to charge

I had the same "Replace with genuine battery" then the countdown. Thought the damn thing was going to blow up!! Verizon switched batteries and told me the phone was dead and that they couldn't get any of my contact phone numbers off of it. Wanted to stick the ticking time bomb up their you know what. Never had any problems with the phone let alone never getting it wet. Anyway I didn't fall for their buy a new phone scheme and left the non customer service store fuming. The next day I had an old dinosaur Verizon phone activated to at least have a phone. Went home and checked a few websites for advice. One I came across made the most sense. Rubbing alcohol on the battery contacts and blow dry off using a hair dryer on the cold position for 20 minutes. Use a cotton swab and gently wipe the battery prong contacts on the phone itself as well as the battery contacts. I also wiped down the inside of the battery charging slot. Popped the battery back in and just like magic..... the phone was back from the dead. Told Verizon about the cure and they shrugged their shoulders. This works trust me and don't fall for their buy another new phone gimmick. Can you hear me now? NOOOOO
