First get rubbing alcohol (higher % the better) and brush both ports on the phone and the charger. Blow dry it for a minute or so and plug in.

If still no-go, then try it with another charger....if the same result, the phone has a bad charging port and need to be replaced.

The newer phones are coming out with very sensitive ports, so you have to be finesse with them.

I put my U5i to charge and when I woke up in the morning it was shut down and I can't turn it on...In two words the phone died.


Did you drop the phone in water recently? Did you get it wet in the rain? Apart from the likely possibility that the phone is actually damaged/battery damaged, this happens if the power button gets damaged. When you put the phone to charge, in the middle of the night the power button "acted" as if it was pressed and held and the phone turned off. Now when you press the power button, nothing happens because the power button is damaged.

Take it to a repair shop and check the power button for damage. It is replaceable and should not cost a lot.

Does your phone have a removable battery? If yes then you might be in luck. If not, then just take the phone to repair shop and get the power button checked and repaired.

If battery is removable I know that it is possible to turn on the phone this way:
1) Plug in the charger to the phone
2) Remove the battery and insert it immediately. Do this multiple times and the phone should turn on without having to press the power button.
Hope that works.

Buttons and screen do not work


Hello

Did your phone get wet or was it dropped before this happened ? The reason I ask is because it sounds like the phone's lcd or possibly the mainboard was damaged.

If you didnt get it wet or drop it then there is a chance the phone was just defective. If you have phone insurance replace it if not you might want to decide between getting a new one or having that one repaired. Normally its more expensive to repair it then replace it.

The main button


Hello Alex, I repair these Kodaks and the problem is no fault of yours.These models suffer from switch problems as they age.If it's not the main rotary switch it is the small joystick in the center of it. The repair cost exceeds the cost of replacing the camera, just not worth it.
Sell yours on E-Bay for "parts" and by a good used one.
Best Regards, Russell

I don't know why you can't answer your phone or why you banged it to get it to work but your inside screens connector may just have came loose as it sometimes happens with out you doing anything wrong. Just take it apart and check the wires on the solved problems I think there one that tells you how to do this.
