I have had my samsung propel for 3 years now and every time i put it on the charger i have to position the phone just right or my phone wont charge. at first i thought it was the charger but i plugged in...


Sounds like you have a cracked PC board at the charging port. Most likely caused by attempting to remove the adapter without depressing the tabs. This is an easy fix if you can find a shop to do it; keep in mind that repairing maybe as much or more then the phone is worth.

My suggestion is to position the charger so that the battery continue to charge, then replace the handset when it no longer accepts a charge. This could take a week or a year or two before the charging circuit is no longer working.

Samsung Intensity Wont turn on.


More often then not its the battery even tho the battery is fully charged as it may seem. The rel test is get a new battery not your friends battery tho but a new one put it in there and let it charge. If that doe not work then the phone's logic board has been effected and it may or might not be worth reviving. But check the battery first.


Please do be considerate and leave ratings and feedback for all experts involved in helping you out today, thanks

I have a samsung f480i.. and lately it just died, when i plug it into the battery charger, all it does is keep flashing the samsung logo and gets extremly hot, it doesnt even turn on anymore, just flashes...


If the cell phone senses that the charging is too strong (that is, if the charger is giving too much voltage that could make damage) the cell phone will react with a message tha tcharging is wrong or by blinking until you remove the overcharging item. Also, it could be that the battery is shorting (internally) and causing the charger to react toa short and the cell phone sense this as incorrect voltage, and thereforeis warning that something is wrong. Try the charger problem by attaching the cell phone to someone' elses phone charger and see if it continues, or if you have or can cheaply buy a car charger adapter for the cigarette lighter outlet; this will tell you if the wall electric charger is at fault or it is the battery.. if you still get the same results with the car charger, hopefully you can go to a cell store or a friend and try another battery before buying one. If a different battery does not stop the blinking, the problem is the phone.. if it is ithe phone, try turning off the phone and wait one minute before turning on.

Samsung omnia problem trying to charge battery


It looks like battery is damaged... When plugged in to charger phone shouldn't power on. Try put it on charger when on and see if charging icon appear. (top right corner-battery status icon should change -insted of battery to charging.) Battery is fully charged after cca 4 hours, 80% after 2 hours.

My samsung juke wont turn on. ive charged it several times and still nothing. ive sent it to electronic experts and nada. ive taken th battery in and out and nothing. Ive held the END button on the phone...


Does the Verizon logo flash when you plug it in? I had this same problem. Take the battery off. Plug the phone in. Observe the flashing logo. Put the battery back in. Observe "Charging..." screen. Power on. Unplug. Good to go.

Phone not charging


If the new charger is also not working then surely it's the problem of that charger port (valve). It must have been damaged.U need to get it fixed from the hardware vendor.
