Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone
Basically, my LG Env won't charge.
The little peice that cover's the place were you plug the cable into the phone is broken off, but does that effect it?
It charged earlier, but the cable had to be in some weird angle, and now it's not charging at all. : (
Am I going to have to replace my phone, get my phone fixed, or buy a new charger for it?
Help, Please! : (
Well i dont have any long term ansa but here is a short term one while you find a new charger.
Take the charger and dismantle the end that plugs into fone. you should have 2 wires a black & white or black & red. Leave the blobs of solder on the end of the wires as this helps. Leave the wall socket end of charger in tact.
Take your battery out of fone. As with a normal battery you will see a (+) and (-) sign on it. Attach the black or darkest wire to the negative (-) metal square on the battery and the white or lightest wire (maybe red) to the positive (+) metal square on the battery (after trial & error i found a clothes peg to be the best form of attaching it). Leave attached for 15 minutes and this will give you around an hours usage when you put the battery back in the fone. If you leave it overnight then it will be on all day.
Basically you are making the circuit without the fone which bypasses your pin problem. Any charger will work with any fone as the charging components are in the wall end. Just make sure the voltage is compatible ie, 5v fone charger replacing 5v charger etc. Although majority of chargers are 5v.
I know this works cos i did it to mine last nite as i needed to ansa my emails. Really simple but a little drastic like i said but if the pin connector is broke anyway wot you got to lose?? I am a girl so if i can do it anyone can lol!!
Only drawback is you cant use the fone while it is charging unless you have 2 batteries and you use one while the other charges which is what i am doing. In fact i might not buy a new charger lol, i dont need one now ive found this method works.
Happy charging!! Hope this helps! Gail-michelle

Cut off end of charger. Expose red and white wire. I attached alligator clips and then attached red to pos (+) and white to neg. (-) On the vx9900, of the four contacts, outside right is positive outside left is negative.

This is a universal cell phone battery charger. Get it if Verizon the crappy company will not make it right!
PS I hate verizon... ATT has better coverage.

My phone wouldn't take a charge. As a last resort I tried the tooth brush thing someone else posted and it worked great'

A good answer to this is simply to try a Samsung charger. My dad has an Android that he uses a Samsung charger for, and it works for my LG enV2 which will not charge unless plugged into it.

I tried splicing the wires directly to the battery (look at the above solutions) and that seemed to work only when its not plugged in the charger light is on. is that normal lol?

Same thing happened to my phone! I had to do all sorts of contortions to get the phone to charge, then eventually nothing worked. got a new phone and a new battery and a new charger. Luckily mine was under warranty, so didn't have to pay. POOR design as this recurring problem clearly shows.
