    Is there a service manual available om the web showing how to open the phone and inspect the contact?

  • mats_olsmats May 03, 2010

    Cleaning the contacts did not help,. Therefore I should like to inspect the contact and need a service manual to be able to open it.. The telephone is Samsung SGH-F480.



    Thank you!

Hi.

That probably means that the connector on the phone is faulty.

If the phone does not start at all, then before going for the connector the phone must be tested using a battery charged on a different phone, to ensure that the problem is not a faulty battery or a dead phone.

The connector usually fails because of oxidized contacts on phone connector.

You can try sprying circuit cleaner solution on the contacts. Remove the battery before applying the solution and follow carefully the instructions.

Here a product:Misty Contact Circuit Board Cleaner III

If that does not work, then the connector is broken. In this case the phone needs repair.

Regards.

    Hi.

    To clean the connector to chareger and data cable you do not need to disassemble the phone.

    If you want to look for a service manual you need to give me info on make and model of your phone.

    Thanks.

My samsung a257 will not charge. It says paused battery temperature


Consider that it has been sitting for a long time, my educated guess if two chargers have been used and it will not charge you have a bad battery.

Battery won't charge


If the device charges when connected to the computer directly, then the battery is ok. If that's the case, are you using the charger that came with the iPod? Earlier chargers (2004, 2005ish) will not charge newer iPods.

Laptop will not charge, tried other chargers


I has a similar problem with my old laptop. Consider trying a new battery. At some point, the batteries just stop taking a charge. You can get an appropriate battery for your computer on the internet at a reasonable price - check Ebay for the going price for auctions or buy it now.
