Question about Samsung Comeback Cell Phone

2 Answers

My Samsung Comeback will not charge. When I plug it in and it's turned off, the bars go up, as if it's charging. But when I charge it for a long period of time ( longer than usual for it to be fully charged ) it still doesn't have any batteries. It remains dead. It HAS to stay plugged into the wallcharger for me too use it. Also, it mysteriously gets very hot when I charge it for a while. When it was hot, I took the battery out. It also had an extremly weak vibration, almost non-existant. The phone itself was hot, along with the battery. I took it to the T-Mobile place, and they told me to switch the battery with my brothers because he has the same phone. When we switched batteries, the same problem with mine happened with his. So, we switched back, went to the T-Mobile place, and they gave me a new battery. The new battery worked for about a day before the same problem symptoms occured. It got hot to the touch when charged, died mysteriously, wouldn't hold a charge, and had very, very weak vibration. When my phone was completly fine, whenever it had a low battery, I could still use it for about 2-3 hours before it died. But now, after the first 'low battery' warning, it died. I went from 2 bars, to 4 bars, to 3 bars, and never once got full no matter how long I had it on the charger. Then when I took it off the charger, the batteries continued to go up even though it wasn't charging. Next, I took out the charger, put it back in after I had turned the phone off, and it started looking like it was charging, even though it was not. So I opened the phone and took out the battery, but the phone continued to look like it was charging! That was scary so I put the battery back in, and started charging it. Keep in mind this is all with my new battery. I've had this phone since December 26th, 2009. Is it faulty? I've read people on here have had similar problems. I haven't since taken it back to the T-Mobile store. It is still under warrenty, and I was considering exchanging it for a new phone. I would just like to see if there is any way I can fix it, without getting a completly new phone. So, the PROBLEMS are : *It gets very hot when I charge it *Won't hold a charge *Very weak Vibration *Has to stay plugged into the wall charger Hope you may be able to fix it. If not, appreciate your help. ~Thank you.

You need to remove the battery and check it with some other phone. Otherwise check to see if there is a problem with the charger by charging another phone. Then you can find out the probleem is in which device.

I had the same problem, but was able to solve it by removing the memory card and starting it up again. I cycled it three or four times, turning it on and off, then charged the battery, as this had occurred when my battery was too low.
I *think* there may be a compatibility issue with the 8Gb memory card I'm using, as there may have just been too much on it...or not. Anyway, my phone is working fine now. I just won't let it get so low on charge (it turned itself off in the middle of the night!)

I can not get the battery to charge on my samsung comeback - when I plug it into the charger - nothing happens

Try cleaning the battery and phone terminals. It's very possible that it isn't making a proper connection.

There are 3 solutions to your problem.
1) You need to replace your phone's battery, or
2) You need to replace your charger. (If you have a car charger, try it to determine if your home charger is the problem) or
3) you need to have the charging plug on your phone repaired; it will need to be sent in for service.
