Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Cannot charge my SGH A707

I cannot plug my phone to a charger, if I do so it cuts off immediately. However if I have a previously charged battery I can use the phone just fine. The minute I plug my phone to the charger it cuts off, almost like a short circuit. If that happens, I have to take off the battery and wait a few minutes before I can use the phone again.

I tried different chargers same story. My wife uses a similar phone and is able to use my phone charger just fine. It almost seems like I bent the charger pins or something.

    i have the same phone, and my won't even charge. on or off, i have to wiggle the charger in and at just the right angle, it will finally charge. not consistently though. it will beep as if it's charging and then not charging. right now it out of power, and its hard to tell if its charging or, because i can't hear the regular beeps that let me know when it charges.

    very frustrating

My phone shuts off and turns on when i charge it its a samsung A707

You must change your charger,your charger is providing insufficient or more then required current to your cell.You can also do a trick to fix this problem but i will recommend you to buy a new charger.Here is the trick: Shorten the length of wire of your charger, cut it remove some part of charger wire and reconnect them the same way as they were connected before.It should fix your problem. Good luck! :)

Phone not charging unless i hold it in my hand and squeeze the charger. Same thing happens with a new charger

Try to reduce the length of wire of your cell's charger.Cut the wire of your charger and reduce its length.Reconnect both wires the same way they were connected before and please make sure wires wont touch each other.Set your phone at charge and see if its charging,if not then connect the wires again but differently.
If you have the same problem with other chargers too then the problem is with your charging port.You'll have to take your cell to cell phone repairer.

Thank you!

Cell phone won't charge! Why not?

I have to wrap my charger around the front of my phone to get it to charge... if I don't the battery icon blinks full then empty a few times and doesn't charge. not a good fix though.

Phone keeps restarting while charging

Some chargers dont work with this particular model of phone even though they fit. One that works for me is called a I-GO you buy the tip separately from the cord and its a little bit expensive, roughly 40 dollars, but it works lol.
