Lg 8500 wont charge

My lg 8500 choc had the connector for charging the batt snap right off the board. too small to solder it back to board. What are my options? if i buy a parts one off ebay, I am thinking chances are good i can find one with an ok board and swap it out. but....is the lockout feature on that same board? or is it in the screen half of the phone. I am thinking about buying a locked lg8500 just to use for batt charger for mine. My phone works great other than i cant charge the batt due to the charge port being broke out of the phone.

Why does,nt alternator charge the battery?


You need to check the small connector that plugs into the back of the alternator. One of the pins will have a power supply when the ignition is in the on position. It could be 12v or 5v so a voltmeter should be used to detect it. If no power check fuses. Possible bad charge fuse or wiring to the alternator. If power supply is there, possible faulty alternator ( even though it's new )

I have an XO tablet for my kids but they've broken the charging port... is there anyway to replace the charging port myself


Hi Johhnie,


To repair a charging port you will need the following:

  • fine tip soldering iron (Weller 15 watt)
  • Dremel tool with cut off wheel
  • De-soldering Braid
  • Torx T5 screwdriver
  • small flat bladed screwdriver (optional)
  • Diagonal cutters
  • small hemostat or fine tweezers
  • Panavise, helping hands or similar bench top holding device.

Take off the back cover and remove the battery.
Next, whip out that Torx T5 and remove the screws holding the phone together. On this one, there were only four to remove.
With the screws out, gently pull the phone apart. The lower half of this Motorola clips together, so I gently worked around the edges with a small flat screwdriver until it came apart.
The SIM card board easily separates from the phone via the flat SMD connector. Just gently apply pressure near the connector and it comes right off.
Next, the flat ribbon cable needs to be detached in the same manner, and the main PC board removed from the phone. It should pull right out once the cable is disconnected.
As you disassemble the phone, put each of the pieces into a parts bin. Any sort of container will do, but I'd avoid a static generating plastic Tupperware container.
Carefully place the board in your clamp/Panavise/whatever - I had to line up the buttons with the slots in the vise, or I probably would have damaged them when I clamped the board
You'll need a new connector before you can fix anything.
In order to check the condition of the pins, clip the two tabs that hold the rear shielding on to the connector with a pair of diagonal cutters.
With the rear shield removed, we can access the rear pins - Unlike the front, everything looks pretty good. The advantage of surface mount parts is that they don't require much solder to hold together. Unfortunately, when you're replacing a surface mount part, a small amount of solder can keep you from removing the part without damaging the board.
To keep from burning this foam seal, peel it back and stick it off to the side.
Enter the rotary tool. Sliced the top off of the connector by cutting the sides lengthwise.
Next, cut across the center of the connector. The bent pins should be gently cut loose and the upper half of the plastic connector will probably fall apart. The shielding on the sides should be cut to allow each leg to be removed individually. (Be careful not to cut the PC board below!)
Working from one side to the other, heat up the solder pad on each pin. Then use some tweezers to grip each pin of the connector. (I used a small pair of alligator forceps) If the solder is hot enough, the surface mount pin should come loose with little to no force. It's vitally important to be as gentle as possible with each one. The solder pads on the PC board are very delicate, and easy to pull up if you're not careful. Unfortunately, overheating the pads can also cause them to pull up. So be quick about it!
With the delicate pins out of the way, I carefully cut apart the remaining plastic and removed it.
Finally, the remaining legs of the shielding were heated and removed from the board.
After the new port is aligned (double check the pins in the rear!) solder one of the shielding legs to the board. Double check the pin alignment again, and solder the other legs. Now the port should be solidly mounted.
Next, the pins on the new port need to be soldered. The super fine tip on my 15 watt Weller pencil made this easy. Alternatively, you can use a wider tip to solder things and go back over the pins with de-soldering braid to remove any solder bridges. If you forgot to remove the rear shield, you'll have one hell of a time soldering the pins. On this particular phone, the metal shielding behind the port made it impossible to access the pins without removing the rear shielding.

Regards

Just opened my ion block rocker box and got the unit out and tried to charge it. It won't charge and the charge light only lights for about 20 seconds and turns off. It won;t operate unless plugged in and...


Just repaired my Job Rocker !! Just like most everyone here mine worked fine but would not charge. This may be how to fix yours.

Follow the red wire up from the battery to the circuit board and carefully try to disconnect it from the circuit board. Odds are the male spade connector will come off the circuit board. That's because it never got hot enough for the solder to actually stick to it when it was assembled at the factory. With time, the expansion and contraction from the heating and cooling of the circuit board causes this poor connection and prevents electricity from getting to the battery.

Remove the male connector from the female part using plies (this was difficult and required wiggling the connectors back and forth while pulling hard - and I'm not sure if it is absolutely necessary ).Clean the two prongs on the male connector with some fine sandpaper or an emery board and put some solder flux on them. (If you are unsure how to solder watch a few videos on Youtube or get help from someone who can) Heat the prongs up with a soldering gun or iron and coat them with some solder. Carefully remove the circuit board (by removing 4 screws) from the plastic panel to which it is attached.Then insert the male connector back on the circuit board while heating up the solder on the back side causing the connector to properly solder to the board.

Carefully plug your female spade connector back on the male spade connector you just soldered on the board. After making sure the circuit boards are not touching each other, plug your unit into the power and see if the charging light and the other 3 LEDs light up. If they do, unplug from your power, reassemble, plug back in and enjoy. If the don't, check where the black wire from the battery attaches to the circuit board and repeat the same procedure. Good Luck !

Please post your results so we can all know if this is a common problem and a good fix! Thanks again!!

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.

That batt is almost dead, had a similar problem. No tricks just replace it. Or try charging using a universal charge where you remove the batt and charge it seperately

My samsung mobile sch i617 black jack is not charging i found connector is defective.How to replace the connector. prabhakar


Usually there are 4 to 6 screws to disassemble the back panel or there is a snap in place backing and a special pry tool is used to remove the back panel.
the connector is usually a coaxial connector and will have to be order from an electronic connector manufacturer of the same specs as the one to be removed or you will find it hard to replace the cover and the power supply cord may not fit and you will need the correct polarity.
If you cannot obtain the correct coaxial connector you may be able to hard wire another connector to the main board and retro fit that connector into the case of the mobile. this will require soldering and correct soldering to the proper ground and to the positive lead for power on the main board.

My phone will not charge with my car charger or home charger.


hi, this would indicate one of two things the first and most likely is going to be that the charging connector on the phone has come un-soldered off the circuit board, if this is the case then this would need taking in to get a new part fitted back in.

The other problem could be that one of the terminals the battery makes contact with has come un-soldered off the board and would need soldering back in place.

Both of these jobs would need sending of to do as its not something you can do yourself due to the fact that without specialist soldering equipment and testing equipment you would cause the phone to over heat causing further damage.

First of all check that where the charger plugs into the phone that their is no piece of paper jammed in the charging port or even a bit of fluff as this can cause a bad connection resulting in it not charging.

Check the charging port isnt loose.

You could take your phone into a phone shop and ask them to try another battery in the phone they wont charge for this but if it does then switch the phone on you then know its a charging problem, but if the phone dont switch on the you know its going to be either a battery terminal fault or it could even be a fault with the phone, so taking it into a phone shop would at least let you know what the fault is, they dont charge just for checking the battery for you si thats what i would try first.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Meastro 4040 wont charge reliably


I had the same trouble exactly. The yellow power input socket has a pin and shield connection that must be contacting the center and side of the power input plug. I opened the Magellan and found that one side of the shield contact had never been soldered to the PC board. It was only a matter of time and use, before the piece moved up and away from the outer part of the power socket. A dot of solder solved the problem. The case for the Magellan is easily opened by removing four very small screws from the four corners of the black back and then prying the silver framed screen from the back exposing the printed circuit board. I am sure this completely voids the warranty with Magellan, but they will not repair out of warranty units anyway. Be aware there is a connector from the screen that is plugged into the circuit board. This is easily pulled apart with a pair of fine needle nose pliers and replaced the same way after the repair. The soldering should be done by someone with PC board assembly experiance.
