Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

My enV will not charge!

A few months ago i discovered that my LG enV could not hold a charge. i would have to reposition the charger, and prop up the phone for it to charge. the problem has only gotten worse. as of now i am not able to prop up the phone to charge, it still wont work. i plugged in the charger last night to find that it was working! tthis is because i taped the charger in place. however, when the phone read "CHARGE COMPLETE" and i unplugged it, the phone shut off immediately. i took out the battery, and put it back in. no help. when the phone says charge complete, it seems as if the phone still has a low battery. HELLLLPPPP!

    well got the same problem sort of I have been redaing and looking wround online its prob not the battery apperently the charging port on this phone seems to been poorly made b/c alot of people are having problems it starts out not fully charging then it just will not charge at all which is what mine is doing... if you have insurence on the phone they will fix it no problem and I think even if you dont take it in and tell them whats going on i am surreeee you will not bethe first to bring that to them with that problem!!!!

    When it first started I would move it a little bit an it would do just fine but it has gotten a lot worse. I started to tape the charger in place and if I move it just a teeny tiny bit it will stop charging! Now I can get it to charge if i hold it but then it only charges for like 2 minutes even if i don't move it!

    Same here i have the orange env and at first it would beep so i would move it around untill it charged but now it doesnt charge at all even when i tape it to the charger it would say full charge and i would turn it on and it turns right off i dont know what to do

    wow. i have the same problem.

    mine will sometimes charge, but if it does, it only lasts a couple hours or sometimes minutes and then turns off. and after it turns off it wont turn back on until i charge it again. it will work fine for a couple weeks and then quit working again. i've been able to deal with it, just taking my charger with me everywhere i go, but now it wont even turn on when i plug it in. no response. i'm getting really frustrated, and i can't afford a new phone. i don't know what to do. i have insurance, yet every time i go to verizon for help they have always made me pay $50 for a new one, even though all the stories i've heard have included a new phone, no charge.

  • cgchickhart Dec 05, 2008

    yeah i have the same thing only mine it stays but when i bump it it unplugs and when it says complete charger its stays then less than 5 Min's it dead and i cant talk on the phone bc it goes dead so i just gave up im getting a new battery so i hope it works.

  • noy_kulas Dec 06, 2008

    Same here! It started a month ago and as what others say... it is getting worse!!! I just don't understand why LG can't make a simple socket which is not this complicated. a mini USB will be much better. I'm in a point that i want to throw this phone at a verizon store!

Hey i think i just figured out the problem to all the port charging issues for the envy and envy 2 phones with verizon. its not the phones, its the charger cord! the part that goes into the phone. it gets pulled out over time from pulling the cord out of the phone all the time. get a pair of pliers. grab the end and push the metal end of the cord against somthing hard, push it back in so it is at the appropriate depth. this should make it charge properly again!

LG enV won't charge.

If you have only had this phone for 6 months, it should still be under warranty. Also, if you have the insurance plan for the phone from your phone company, they should honor the policy and assist you or replace it for free. My first stop would be at the place that you purchased it from. Even if they wind up charging you a small fee, it will be much less than buying a new one. I hope that this helps.

How do you dismantle the end of the charger?

Absolutely not. You must use the LG charger, or you might get an improper amount of current into the phone and toast it.

Broken charger port

i have the same problem with my enV my friend stripped the wires to my charger at the part where you plug it into the phone so now to charge my phone i tape the red wire to the positive on the battery and the black wire to the negitive there will be a shiny metal goldish color thing (there like 4 lil gold bars) on your battery that looks like this --> (negative) | | | | (positive) | - | | | + | tape the wires on the outside were the symbols are - and + and try not to let it toch the middle bars on the battery or it wont work and dont cover the little bars up with tape put the battery back in the phone making sure the wires dont move to much and it should charge sometimes you got tape the battery onto the phone to make sure it doesnt pop out but its what i do and it saves you money on having to go buy a whole new one or if you know someone with the same phone give them your battery to charge it :)

Env help plz

The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.

Orange LG EnV

if you look at the charger port you will see a metal sleeve around the inside. Itneeds to be bent a little in so it will make the soket tighter. then the socket needs to be cleand out with a small brush. I use a old dry tooth brush

sounds like your charge port isn't connected to the board anymore.

Unfortunately it may be time to have the phone replaced.
