Samsung U-420 Cell Phone

My son has a Samsung U-420 cell phone. It was left on the charger for several days (he was away from home) and when he picked it up to use it the phone was in an endless loop of "reboot". He tried holding the off button but the phone would not power down. He pulled the battery out and reseated it, to no avail. What is wrong with this phone and what can we do?

Tell him and to try a new battery if that does not work then try having the mobile firmware reflash on the phone.

My samsung a257 will not charge. It says paused battery temperature


Consider that it has been sitting for a long time, my educated guess if two chargers have been used and it will not charge you have a bad battery.

I recently jumped into a pool with my cell phone in my pocket (SAMSUNG Reality). I realized it 10 minues or so after. Dried the phone. A day later, the phone will turn on when connected to charger...


When phone gets wet NEVER try to turn it on. Take battery out right away shake water off and put both in bowl of rice for at least 24 hrs. If your not home or don't have rice right away take battery out and get some. We have a bowl of rice on the counter all summer long for those who jump in the pool with phone in their pocket. I have washed them dropped them in the toilet my son jumped in pool with his phone, put it rice for 24 hrs and we were up and running with the exception of the one in the pool, that one cost me new battery on Ebay ($4.95) but phone worked fine, didn't even lose contacts or pictures. But the key is to NOT try to turn it on after its been wet. Water and batteries don't mix.

Samsung glyde - no response to charging


Find someone else with a glyde and ask them if you can trade them batteries for a day to see if it's a bad battery. ( you can usually buy a battery for $5 on ebay, or up to $20 in your carrier cell phone store)

If the problem follows your old battery, toss it and buy another battery.

And if neither swapping out the charger and the battert solve your problem then its the phone itself. I have called in to our cell companies before and let them know we have a phone that will not hold a charge no matter what battery or charger I use... and they usually replace free it under warranty as long as the phone is less than 12 months old, and the white squares in the battery compartment are still white. (Pink Red means oops! water got in there) and then you’re only getting them to cover replacement if you have cell phone insurance

My phone doesnt charge


Your phone doesn't charge? or does not hold a charge?

If the battery meter is not running when ur charger is plugged in, it could be a charging port problem or a battery problem. Go to a nearby shop to have someone try another battery & to determine if that is a battery or a phone problem. If it's the battery then buy a new one. if it's the phone, have a Samsung tech repair it for you
