Question about LG enV Touch VX11000 Cell Phone

1 Answer

The charging port came out of the phone when my daughter removed the charger plug. It looks as if all the wires on the charging port broke off cleanly. Is this something I can repair myself?

Hi, im sorry to say its not something you can do yourself you just wont be able to do it without causing damage to the circuit board by the heat caused from soldering, i mean if your not that bothered about the phone then you could give it a try but im more or less sure you wont manage it.

put it this way the place you need to solder is so small the chance of getting the solder to stick on to a part thats less than half a ml is risky you just wouldnt get the solder to only solder what you need, their is so much stuff around the solder points that you would touch the solder on something else, these parts are fitted by a machine and the machine disipates the heat and this stops the circuit board over heating.

your best option would be take it to a phone shop and let them sort it for you, you wont be able to use the old part as the pieces that broke off wont sit level when you solder it back on and if you did it would only come back off again when you plug the charger in

if your not bothered if it will work or not then by all means have a go but i would put money on it not working, not because you have not got the skill but just because its in such a tight space that human fingers get in the way.

its up to you but i would not risk it i would get a shop to send it off and have a new part fitted.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My zte maven won't turn on or charge


If your chargers a loose in the phone, that a part in your charging port broke off and it is cheaper to buy another Maven.

Make sure it is not your charger by using other ones to charge.

Remove the battery and plug the charger in, if your phone works without the battery then you need a new battery

Take the battery out for 10 seconds and put it back in, now try charging it.

If non of these options work for you, then your phone is most likely defective and it would be best to look into another phone. The good news is that if you get another Go-Phone or any other AT&T phone, all you need to do is take your sim card out and put it into the new phone to activate it. This means the phone will work right away and you will be able to keep your remaining air time and phone number.

Why your phone won't charge


<span>Hello,<br /><br />there are three or more reason why your your phone won't charge;<br /><br />1. The charger might be defective.<br />2. The charging port of the phone might be defective.<br />3. The battery cell might be very weak or the battery might be defective.<br /><br />Charger<br /><br />A defective charge can cause a phone not to charge. To actually find out if your charger is defective or not, borrow a charger from a family or friend that has the type of your phone, use the borrowed charger to on your phone. If the the phone charges, then obviously, your charger is defective and need to be replaced. It is also good to test your charger on another phone to confirm the status of the charger.<br /><br />Make sure you run the above test, before buying another charger so that you don't waste your money. Sometimes, charger might be working and phone won't charge due to some other reasons that would be discussed below. So confirm first before buying another charge. Don't buy another charged based on assumptions........<br /><br />Battery<br /><br />A battery that is very flat, I mean a battery that its cell is very weak, won't charge with a phone charger. You might have to leave the battery in the phone with the charge plugged in for some minutes or hours before the battery will begin to charge and other times, it might not charge at all.<br /><br />What make batteries to be in this kind of condition is; <br /><br />1. If you use you phone to the point when it says "low battery" and you still don't charge the battery and the phone turns off by itself. This can run down a battery cell.<br />2. If you leave a battery in the phone idle for a days or months, the battery cell will become weak. Or if you leave a battery used for days or months.<br />3. If you don't use the correct/right charger for your phone, this can drain the battery instead of charging it.<br /><br />Batteries in such condition will have to be fast charged with a desktop charger. The desktop charger will be connected directly to the battery and the battery will definitely pick up within 1 hour. Thereafter, you can continue charging it with your phone charger and it will charge immediately.<br /><br />But if the battery is defective, it won't charge at all. Even if you use a desktop charger. Such batteries needs to be replaced. Also, it is good to test the phone with another battery, and charge it to confirm before buying another battery.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what a desktop charger looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_4.jpg" /><img src="walesarumi_3.jpg" /><br /><br />Charging port<br /><br />If non of the above seems to be the reason why your phone won't charger, then it means the charging port is defective. <br /><br />Most times defective charging port confuses people. They think the charger is the reason why their phone won't charge and after using another charger on their phone they still find out that the does still does not charge.<br /><br />Once your phone doesn't charge, the first this you test is the charger and second, the battery. But if the battery and charger seems not to be the cause of the problem, then it is the charging port that is cause the problem.<br /><br />Your charging port might not be defective, maybe it loosed contact with the phone phone or it shifted from it's position. Sometimes, the way we forcefully insert our charger into the phone can make the charging port loose contact.<br /><br />At this point, you will have to disassemble your phone. But if you feel it is a task you cannot perform yourself, then take the phone to a repairman to help you out. But if you feel you can do it yourself (DIY), read further.<br /><br />Turn off the phone. Remove the battery. After that, get a phone screw driver, unscrew all the phone screws, remove the phone cover in order to gain access to the phone panel and get to the charging port. <br /><br />Check if the charging port actually loosed contact. If it didn't loose contact, then you will have to replace the charging port. <br /><br />Note that some charging port are soldered to the phone board and some are not. So if yours is not soldered, simply remove the charging port and make a replacement. But if is soldered, you will be needing a rework station. Rework station is what you will use to remove the charging port.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what the rework station looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_5.jpg" /> <img src="walesarumi_6.jpg" /><br /><br />I hope the above makes sense to you.......<br /><br />Good luck.<br /></span>

My phone will not charge. why is that


1) You have corrosion in the charging port and it is shorting it out. Remove battery and clean inside port hole with alcohol and a long bristle brush.

2) The charging port needs to me resoldered. That is a daily repair for my shop. the TWO OUTTER pins are the ones that do the charging the middle are for USB. Just reflow the solder, sometimes they have a crack in them where they bend down to solder into the board. in that case you will have to use a super fine wire to jump the pins where they are broken and solder them to the board. Not for everyone and you need magnification super small iron and flux to relow the solder. never add solder just reflow it with flux. i charger $25 in my shop.

Motorola v365 won't charge and won't stay with wall power


Hello,

The reason your phone wont charge might be because there is a problem with the battery, the charger or the charging port.

To test it if it is the battery,

Insert the battery into another phone and try to charge it for a while,
if it does not work, then it is the battery.

All you have to do is to change the battery.

To test it if it is the charger,

Plug the charger to a power supply,
Connect the charger to another phone, to see if it works.

If it does not work, then it is the charger that needs replacement.

To test if it is the charging port,

Insert a new battery, and plug it to a new charger.

If it does not charge, then it is the charging port.

Replace the charging port and it will be okay.

To replace the charging port;
  1. After removing your back cover and battery, remove the four torx 6 screws you see. (When reassembling, the gold screws go at the bottom and the silver screws go back at the top),
  2. With the four screws removed you can now remove the battery compartment,
  3. With the battery slot removed you have access to one of the ribbons which connects the screen to the main body of the phone. Unclip this (it fits like a plug and socket).
  4. You'll now have the phone in two parts,
  5. Take to the lower part and disconnect the charging port and replace it with a new one,
  6. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly
Take care

My daughter's cell phone charger no longer works. I tried my charger and it still doesn't work. I think plug inside her phone is damaged. Where do I go from here?


Could be the battery.
Try putting your battery in her phone or vice versa and see if the battery will charge.
If her battery will charge in your phone, then it is the charger port on the phone but if it won't charge, then the battery needs to be replaced.

My env2 wont charge. whenever i plug it in, the battery stays the same. what do i do?


This seems to be a common problem for the env2. If you hold your charger a certain way in the phone does it charger? Is the charger port broken or damaged?

If so the easiest workaround is to get an external battery charger and extra battery to charge the phone.

Check out the following link for information on the battery charger and other options for the env2 charge issue.

My daughter's LG EnV charging port


You can get a charger at factorydirectcellular.com. The link is
http://www.factorydirectcellular.com/home/universal/universal-battery-only-charger.htm

The charger charges the battery independent of the phone. It is the only one I have found and it works GREAT. I had a couple issues at first but the rep, Matt, bent over backwards to resolve them. I would recommend this charger and company to anybody. The charger is a universal charger and will charge other cell phone batteries as well. The only con is that it does take a little longer to charge than using the port.

Broken charger port


i have the same problem with my enV my friend stripped the wires to my charger at the part where you plug it into the phone so now to charge my phone i tape the red wire to the positive on the battery and the black wire to the negitive there will be a shiny metal goldish color thing (there like 4 lil gold bars) on your battery that looks like this --> (negative) | | | | (positive) | - | | | + | tape the wires on the outside were the symbols are - and + and try not to let it toch the middle bars on the battery or it wont work and dont cover the little bars up with tape put the battery back in the phone making sure the wires dont move to much and it should charge sometimes you got tape the battery onto the phone to make sure it doesnt pop out but its what i do and it saves you money on having to go buy a whole new one or if you know someone with the same phone give them your battery to charge it :)
