Wont charge and makes noises

Didnt drop it
not wet
idk what happened
i plug it in, it turns on without me pressing any buttons... like it should when you plug it in, but then says low battery, powering off, makes the three little bleeps, but like 5 times lower and slower than the normal bleeps, and shuts off


my past phone of the same kind got wet and made noises like this but then was completley trashed
this one still turns on like its gonna charge but shuts off
it buzzes beeps screeches and sometimes flashes

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.

My phone wont charge when i plug it into the charger


maybe the problem is on your charger. try to change it with a new charger.
if still happen, you can make a jumper to your USB port (if you don't know how to make it, take it to any service centre and ask them to make the jumper)
if still happen call your phone manufacturer.

My iphone 2g wont turn on, i replaced the lcd, it worked ok, my batter was low. so it died and i was trying to turn it on, but it wont turn on. when i plug in the wall charger nothing happens,but when i...


I have a feeling that when you ran the battery down it is now struggling to get and hold a charge.
If you have a friend with a similar battery perhaps try that, or go to a mobile store and ask them to try a new battery for you.

My enV2 wont turn on


I swear this sounds like a low power problem but I am sure you have checked this and I don't want to insult your intelligence. Let's make sure the battery is charged and good. These cell batteries, because they are so fragile and volatile, actually have some mildly complicated circuitry built into them for temperature sensing, short circuit overload, charge rate, peak charge detection, polarity, voltage sensing. They can just fail out of the blue. Try it with another battery if you have one. My Nv2 is in pieces now awaiting a new screen else I would test it along with you. You can find me on HowardForums.com as MeccaTronix and we can go from there. Just post a thread question to me and I will respond. Till I hear from you, try it plugged in to the charger without the battery in and see if the problem persists. HowardForums.com is where all of us cell geeks go to share solutions and problems. In the mean time I will reassemble mine minus the screen to see if we can figure something out. I can at least get spare parts for you cheaply.

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.

Is it a sidekick ID? If you bought if from t-mobile and it hasn't got wet or been dropped then call T-mobile CC. IT should still be under warranty. Do you have a friend that has a sidekick 3 or a sidekick ID that you can try the battery from(they are the same) What type of charging cradle, one witht the spare battery charging slot? Let me know....
