If the cell phone senses that the charging is too strong (that is, if the charger is giving too much voltage that could make damage) the cell phone will react with a message tha tcharging is wrong or by blinking until you remove the overcharging item. Also, it could be that the battery is shorting (internally) and causing the charger to react toa short and the cell phone sense this as incorrect voltage, and thereforeis warning that something is wrong. Try the charger problem by attaching the cell phone to someone' elses phone charger and see if it continues, or if you have or can cheaply buy a car charger adapter for the cigarette lighter outlet; this will tell you if the wall electric charger is at fault or it is the battery.. if you still get the same results with the car charger, hopefully you can go to a cell store or a friend and try another battery before buying one. If a different battery does not stop the blinking, the problem is the phone.. if it is ithe phone, try turning off the phone and wait one minute before turning on.

IPhone 3GS battery replaced, connected to itunes via USB cable and synced, battery percentage indicator showed a power plug didn't start charging. Charger removed and over night the battery seemed to have...


Is the replacement battery an original equipment battery? I bought an aftermarket battery for my Samsung and the phone will not recognize the battery even though the specs are identical. Nice trick by Samsung. See if I ever buy another product of theirs again. Anyhow try putting the old battery back in and see if it will function while plugged in. Otherwise head to the phone store.

My samsung F480i keeps on turning off..what should i do???


That is a phone, you are asking in a forum for shavers. I might be able to still answer it though.

keeps turning off? If it is charged and still doing that, buy a new battery. when lithium batteries get old they dont hold a charge anymore. People think their phone is broke when they just need a new battery. Make sure you try it at the store just in case that doesnt solve it.

Whatever you do...don try to shave with it.

My Samsung phone won't turn on..I plugged it into the charger and the screen keeps flashing the AT&T logo. My Phone is the Samsung A177 GoPhone


I would highly recommend u to change the battery and see what happens. Take it to the shop where they sell the battery and only pay for it if it turns ur phone on.

Samsung Intensity Wont turn on.


More often then not its the battery even tho the battery is fully charged as it may seem. The rel test is get a new battery not your friends battery tho but a new one put it in there and let it charge. If that doe not work then the phone's logic board has been effected and it may or might not be worth reviving. But check the battery first.


Please do be considerate and leave ratings and feedback for all experts involved in helping you out today, thanks

WIll not turn on. Screen just flashes the samsung logo when I plug in the charger. Does anyone know about this problem?


Hi,

problem can be solved.Did you download any application from the internet?.If yes, that means the phone memory is dead and it needs to be flashed to restore the memory of the phone back.You can use this link to Get info. about flashing the phone.
(unlocktotalk.com/UnlockCodeInstructions.htm).

You can also check for the battery may be it is not well charged because the cell of the battery might be weak and needs to wake up by much charger.

You can also get another battery to test the phone to be sure it is not the battery.

You can check both the battery and the board to be sure of wish is faulty.

Take care.

Does the Verizon logo flash when you plug it in? I had this same problem. Take the battery off. Plug the phone in. Observe the flashing logo. Put the battery back in. Observe "Charging..." screen. Power on. Unplug. Good to go.

Phone won't turn on at all


take the battery out then try again. If the battery isn't totally dead try turning the phone on and then plugging it in. It's happened to me before and sometimes it takes a few tries to get it to work but it should come on eventually.
