My galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it


Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not holding....is it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

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>

When I put in the charger for my Samsung phone, it says "Charging stop" when I put the phone down. Why?


Your charger is probably loose or not fitting into the port correctly. After you put it down, wiggle it and see if the "charging stop" disappears.

For LG enV VX9900 Phone, Silver (Verizon Wireless) My charge port is loose. When I plug in charger it moves and is not snug. It now is so loose that I have try and catch the right spot for contact and...


Hello,

It is not your battery, as far it is charging when you get the right spot at the charging port.

I advice you change your charging port because it is glaring it cannot hold your charger firmly anymore that why you have to all through the stress of locating where it will charge at the charging port.

Just replace the charging port, you will see it will charge without you holding it.

To confirm that your battery is still very good, you can remove it and place in another phone, if it charge, it means it is good.

Please also try to use the charger to charge another similar phone to see if it will giving you such problem because it could also be that the charger is bad.

Take care.

Phone is in the charger and after charging for a little bit it stops charging and says "warning bad contact of charger" how do I fix this problem for nokia n97. Please help


Hi, the problem is with either the phone charger or the charging port IC.. First of all, change your charger and see if the problem will still repeat itself, if it does, then you have to take the phone to a phone technician to change the charging IC.....

Not charging


Hello,

you need to check things the relates to the charging to know where the fault is coming from. Check the charger, test it with another phone, if it works on another phone, then the fault is from the charging port. Also test the phone with another charger.

Get a phone screw driver, loose the phone and remove the charging port and clean it, also clean the part of the board where the charging port contacts, couple the phone and test again. This does not solve the problem, then you have to completely change the charging port.

Take care.
