Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Charging Problem The charger for my samsung a870 stopped working. I have to hold it in a certain position for it to charge. I got a new charger for it by a differenct maker, but that one stopped working altogether. Now i'm back to holding the charger in place, or placing the phone in a way so that it will charge without my aid.

Charging section working but not charging

It could be 2 things. The power cord is dead and its not charging because of that.

2, the DC jack is loose. The DC jack is the place where you connect the laptop charger to the laptop. If this is loose then you need to hold it in a certain position to get it charging. Sounds familiar.. oh wait! Thats the problem you have.

Or else if your friend or other have same model , get the charger and check it , if its work mean you have problem with your charger , or else you have problem with jack in your laptop.

Hope it will work for your,Good Luck

Lg venus wont charge

Mine has the same problem!! it's definitly the phone I've tried 300 different chargers

mine has gotten so bad I have to hold it in place the whole time that it is charging

recently I made a contraption out of duct tape and a vice grip to hold the cord in the right place that it would keep charging

that worked for a while but now even that is unreliable

it sucks

I will never buy an LG Venus again

My solution : Get a new (completely different) phone

Charging the phone

Sounds like maybe the hardware has damage in the component where the charger goes in. Maybe it needs to be repaired. Check your warranty status

Phone not charging

If the new charger is also not working then surely it's the problem of that charger port (valve). It must have been damaged.U need to get it fixed from the hardware vendor.
