Question about Samsung Galaxy S Captivate I897

1 Answer

I've had my new Captivate for 2 weeks, and at first the travel adapter worked for charging, but now i can only use the USB port on my PC to charge the phone. Is this a problem with the phone's settings or the travel adapter itself?

If you are able to charge the phone via USB then the problem lies in the travel adapter.

My Samsung Galaxy S Captivate has a loose charging port. It will not charge unless I push up on the cable at the exact right spot. How can I fix this?


Maybe try using a different USB connector. It may not be your phone, but the wire or wall plug itself. If that fails then I'd suggest taking your phone into a phone repair store to get your charging port replaced. The same thing happened to me and I took it up to foxpaw and it was only about $50. A new USB cord is around $5 at any walgreens or gas station.

My apple ipad is not reponding when iam charging it how do i reset it


Hello,

If you charge your iPad on a power adapter, the iPad should respond while charging, except if your iPad battery is so low the apps need more power to run.

If you charge your iPad on the USB port of your computer, it is normal you cannot use your apps as the iPad is not only in battery charging mode but also in synchronizing mode with iTunes in the computer. You should lose the habit to charge the iPad on the PC and use a dedicated power adapter instead, as dedicated power adapters charge the iPad battery 2 to 4 times faster than the USB port of most computers.
USB port power: 2.5 Watts in general (5 volt x 0.5 A = 2.5 Watts)
iPhone charger: 5 watts
iPad charger: 10 or 12 watts

Cigar (accessory) port will not provide power via a USB adapter.


Have you tried the adapter in another car? It could be that the ground post is reversed in your adapter and the phone is safeguarding the power flow. A diode installed backwards in the adapter would prevent current flow.

Hi
Check the Manual
User’s Guide


Hay Don't worry it will work
Note: Some low-power USB ports may not be able to provide enough
charge power. Also note that rechargeable batteries may
eventually need to be replaced as they have limited charge
cycles (which vary with use and settings).

Li-ion Battery
The Sansa e200 MP3 player comes with a replaceable and rechargeable
lithium ion battery. To use the player for the very first time, remember to
fully charge the Li-ion battery. You can charge your Sansa through the USB
port of your computer, a car adapter (not included) USB port, or AC adapter
(not included) USB port.


Please execute the following instructions for charging the battery using
an USB port.
1) Connect the smaller end of the USB cable into an available USB
port on the computer
2) Connect the larger end of the USB cable into the dock connector of
the player
3) The computer must be on for most USB ports to charge your
battery. Your Sansa will show connected and the yellow charging
indicator will appear. The battery level indicator will blink while
charging. You will not be able to play while connected to the
computer USB.
4) To stop recharging, disconnect the cable.
The battery can also be charged using an AC adapter (not included) or
a car adapter (not included) and you will be able to play your device
while charging with one of the adapters. The battery will reach
approximately 70% charge in 2.5 hours and full charge in about 3.5
hours. It is recommended that you fully charge your Sansa e200
before the first use.

Charging the mp3mp4 player


  1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
  2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
  3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

E280 not charging


You might have to get a new charger--But be careful. If the charger isn't made especially for the Sansa e280 there's the possibility of it messing up the mp3 player itself.

It could also be your computer's USB port. Try using a friend's computer or a different USB port perhaps and see if it works then.

Lying ipaq H5550!


It's a problem with either the memory board or the button board. With my h5550, the bottom buttons started to stop working and eventualy the PPC stoped charging all together. You can find parts for it online. If all the buttons are working fine, then it's most likely the motherboard. Otherwise it should be the button board.
