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. 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.

You could cut the plug of your battery chrger and take the wires black and red wires and take the battery and touch the black wire to the negitive side and red to the postive there should b 4 gold bars (were u touch the wires to) u need to use the outside two not the midle ones then tape them down not covering the middle ones with tape put the battery in the phone and tape it make sure the middle gold bars arnt being touch it will not work

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.

Lg p970 power button not working

If you press the front right of the phone, close where the LG logo is, and on the same time the power button it will probably work.

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

I have an LG 8700. It is only 8 months old. When I charge the phone, it will beep. Sometimes it will do it every so many seconds, sometimes continually. It will also turns itself back on, and as this...

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 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

Lg prob

it is better way if you have warranty then make use of it ...

if not if you are good at opening then open it and just have a look near port ... if you have the broken piece join it by soldering...

if you dont have that broken piece then just take two small wires an d carefully identify the positive and negative in the circuit board & solder it near the port which is used for charging and then cut the pin of the charger and connect the positive & negative correctly to those wires whenever you want to charge ....

else visit the technician he will replace if the spare part of it is available ..

this doesnot charge too much it is affordable so i suggest you to visit the technician....

Go to They sell a battery charger that doesn't require the battery to be attached to the phone. This will work for the LG EnV phone. $17.00 + $3.95 shipping. Case closed.

It sounds like one of the charging prong contact is lose inside.
to determine this turn off your phone and try to put it to charge.
if the phone powers up by it self. then that is the issue. and only someone with the right tools and knowledge can solder the contact/connector back the the main board.
If any questions please ask.
