Dear lynn,

Yes this is a relatively speaking easy repair for any service center and repair shop and could be done in a matter of minutes.

The only complexity is dissasemble of the phone in order to reach to the right pin that broke.

This can be done by you or a friend technical enough with the ability to solder with a very steady hand.

If your phone is still under warranty (which is not very clarified) 1 year or less anyway take it to LG for warranty repair.

They have to do this for free.

Regards

Trouble with new batteries losing charge. I also purchased a new charger. It will run for awhile a couple of weeks then it will just keep losing power and just stop.


Number 1, always charge after every use. You can check if the charger is charging quickly, by turning on the scooter and watching the gauge when you plug the charger in. The gauge should climb up if it does not move then charger is not working. Make sure the charger is plugged into an outlet that is not shut off with a light switch!

Can the batteries or my charger be bad on my Pride Jazzy 1113 ATS?


The MK batteries are far superior to Interstate batteries overall.
You can load test the batteries to see if they are working properly with a load tester. Your can test the charger output to the batteries with a digital voltmeter connected to the batteries with the charger plugged in. These 2 tests take less than 10 minutes and can be done at a local auto or scooter shop for nominal expense.
Make sure the charger and battery connections are tight and free of corrosion. On the VSI of the Jazzy 1113 there is a notorious problem with 8 pin connector and 3 pin molex at the back. You can clean these connectors but a complete electrical rebuild of the pins and receptacles is sometimes required if significant corrosion has set in. Try spraying electrical cleaner and use green Scotchbrite to clean the metal tabs on the 8 pin connector. Make sure the 3 pin molex sits in the receptacle and is making good contact.
Hope this helps.

New phone charging super slow and says charging when it's not even plug in


firstly, you should try and get a new phone over the warranty you may have /may have not bought with your purchase, if that is not the case you can always try and do it yourself, by giving the phone a factory reset, if that does not work you should contact the brand of your phone for help and an optional repair.
i hope this helped you!

My phones charge finish quickly. Why


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

About 3 weeks ago, the battery in my 2001 chevy lumina died. I wasn't able to drive it for about a week and went out today to do so and the lights came on, dimly, and the car wouldn't start. The battery...


Well, I would charge the battery with a plug in battery charger for about 3 days to make sure it is fully charged.

If the battery doesn't take a charge, then I would replace the battery.

Make sure the connections are shiny, clean and tight at the contact points.

After the battery is charged, then I would have it tested for starting/charging at your local parts store or Sears or Walmart or other battery retailer.

Remember, batteries only last 3 years on average, so if charging it doesn't solve the starting problem, then I would consider buying a new battery for the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

Battery drains quickly. Loses charge when plugged


Sounds like you need a battery. The key here is that the battery is losing charge while it is supposed to be charging. Works like a car battery, even if the alternator is working 100%, if the battery is pooched, the car won't start.

DELL XPS 1210 i purchased a replacement battery not recognised


If the battery is not detected in the BIOS (F2 at boot) and doesn't show as charging, then return the battery and get a replacement.

If neither the original battery or the new replacement battery are not detected in the bios a problem with the motherboard may exist. If still under warranty, contact Dell Support for a repair, if not, then you may be investing in a new motherboard

Batteries


Hi, This might be a case of the defective batteries (though brand new). Most if not all rechargeable batteries including Li-Ion batteries have only so much shelf life. The unit might be new but have been with the dealer for sometime. Probably your best bet would be to bring it back to the dealer and ask for a replacement camera or at least the batteries. Show him the fully charged indicator and how quick it will be gone when you try to take a pic. Of course, you would need your warranty card, proof of purchase and any other documents normally asked for complaints like this, Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
