It charges somtmes but only 26% now it wont charge and wont turn on i have changed cords and plugs nothing works please help

1. is there lint or some pants pocket debris or dirt inside the charging port on the bottom of the phone? use something non metal that won't break inside, it needs to be thin enough to move around and poke around the bottom, not interfering with the chip that sticks out.

charges-somtmes-but-only-26-now-wont-c42sdu52tip34gjoftdmfcql-4-0.png before you do that.. turn off the phone and take out the battery just in case. you don't want to short the charging port, so why risk it.

you can use a thin side wooden tooth pick (not the thick rounded ones, they won't fit), or you can use an unused plastic brush tooth pick that's available at most stores like Walgreens, CVS, Safeway, etc..

2. If nothing comes out, try using a different wall charger adapter that works for your Samsung device. Many cell phones use a 3volt charger that won't work with Samsung smartphones because Galaxy phones need a 5volt charger. The others will just trickle charge it or may not work at all. Also, the cord itself. You can't just use any micro USB charging cable. You need to use one that can push enough electricity to your device. So it has to be a Samsung smartphone compatible one. If you have ruled this out..

3. Is the wall outlet bad? Try a different wall outlet. Example: at the airport we tried all the wall outlets in the same area, none of those charged the device. We thought it could be the charging cable or the adapter that was dead. Then we went to another area in the airport and tried again. This time we were charging the phone fine. Cable and charging adapter were apparently working great.

4. If that's not it.. what happens when you try jiggling the charging cable connected to the phone.. try angling the cable head to the left or right.. does it only charge when in a specific position? it could be the charging cable or the charging port that needs fixing..

5. If that was not the case, and everything you've tried doesn't work, it could just be the charging port on the phone is bad. Bring it to your local cellular repair shop. It should cost around $35 to $50 to fix.

6. If your phone is not worth it to fix it, it might be a better idea to buy a newer model phone. If you can't afford another phone or to fix the port, why not just buy a separate battery wall charger. You can buy a cheap China version to charge your existing battery outside of the phone and then just pop the fully charged battery in when you need to use the phone. I'd recommend charging the battery when you are sleeping.

Solar Chargers Save your phone at the beach

Solar chargers are great for commuters who always need their devices to be charged up to 100%. While there has been a rising trend to have charging ports on trains and buses there are still places where you will find yourself without any way to charge your dying digital device.

Luckily the technology behind solar panel charging has come down in size and price in recent years. And since most of the time that you are on the go the sun is up you are able to charge your solar panel charger all day long.

My friends and I love to spend the day at the beach, but the problem with the beach is there are no power outlets to charge cell phones and ereaders. Which is fine when you are spending the day with friends because then we won't be on the phone all day, but the battery still drains.

Especially because we switch out who has to sit with the towels bags and cell phones, which usually involves them taking pictures and posting them on Facebook or them playing games. So we each have our turn to drain our cell phone's battery.

It has happened a few times that our phones have died and we had to beg someone else on the beach to lend us a phone so we could call a cab to come pick us up.

One of my friends recently picked up a solar charger and brought it to the beach on our next trip. While everyone else's phones died he was able to charge his phone up to call the cab. This inspired the rest of us that solar chargers were not as dorky as we had thought.

Now when we go to the beach there is always one person who has to sit with the bags and cell phones, as well as our little solar charger farm that we set up.

Its a funny sight all those little panels laying the sand, but we haven't been stuck with a dead battery since we got them!

Many samsungs will only work with the Samsung charger because they need a very specific voltage / amperage. Lower cost charger have more variable power levels which confuse the phone. Either find the original Samsung charger, or pick up a higher quality charger.

Her is a possible solution:

2. Lease the device plugged into the charger, while you have the device plugged into power, press the power button for a full 40 seconds, release. Wait for 5 seconds and then press and release the power button. Did the device wake up? No, continue to step 3.
3. Plug the device into another charger, if you do not have an charger from another phone go to Staples or Radio Shack pick up a new Kindle or Universal charger, make sure you can return the charger.
4. Plug the Kindle into the new or alternate charger. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds release. Let charge for 12 full hours.

Where is the charger located and what type of charger does a Nokia 5230-1cuse?

The charger plugs in to the top of the phone, on the right hand side. As with most Nokia phones, the charger is a fairly generic device with a small standardized connector. You can pick them up fairly cheaply at many appliance stores if you don't have one.

Alternatively, you could use USB to charge with an adapter such as this on eBay.Note that the phone will not charge on its included USB cable.

I was given a Garmin Nuvi 1350 for my birthday about nine months ago ...I still haven't used it. I think my husband forgot to pick up an instruction book. Is it possible to email me one, and also list...

There's a manual available in adobe reader format at
There should have been a car charger with the satnav. It has a plug that goes in the cigarette lighter socket of the car on one end and the other end has a mini USB plug that goes in the back of the satnav. Charging with this charger takes about 4 hours though it can be charged while using the satnav. For the first charge you should leave it on until it's fully charged.

There should also be a mini USB lead with the satnav that can be used to connect it to a computer. Connecting it to a computer also charges it though this method takes about 8 hours.

Mains chargers can be bought seperately from shops which sell garmin satnavs.

Navigon 2100 doesn't pick up any signal. Tried by keeping it on for more than an hour at various locations outside.

Nine minutes is the maximum time a GPS should take to lock on to a signal. Longer periods are caused by a failing battery or a battery that is not fully charged.

Either charge it via AC or USB, car chargers do not charge them fully they are just mainhtenance charging.

Garmin Nuvi 250 stuck in mass storage mode when car charger is plugged in. It seems to think that my car charger is the cpu and not a charging device only. Please help, this is extremely annoying

Make sure you have the rite charger. Garmin will only work with a garmin charger. You may have accidently picked up a blackberry charger or something. Hope this helps

Garmin nuvi 200 pick up charger as a usb cable

The problem is very simple... The GPS unit perceives whatever you plug in depending on the power supply figure.
If you car charger is not giving enough power, then the GPS perceive the cable as being connected to a pc.... thus not charging. Check with an car electrician if you can raise the power supply on your car...
