Samsung Galaxy S Phone Won't Charge


My charger isn't working anymore. I don't know whats the problem but i went to bell today (bell is a canadian store which sells the phone) and they said it's because i spilled water on the phone, which is why it's not working. Now this could be true because my phone fell and completely came apart at a club and the floor was sticky with booze, but that was last friday; it's been one whole week.

Should i trust the store? Is there anything i can do to fix this? I've tried charging on my laptop as well and that doesn't work either.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Will Not Charge Unless Its Off

I walked into my room to find my 18 mo old daughter with the tip of the mini usb charger that came with my sgn in her mouth. I quickly grabbed it, inspected it, and dried it off and nothing seemed to be wrong. She also had my sgn but i don't think anything was wrong with that either. But now my sgn will not charge unless it's off. If i power it on and insert the mini usb. Nothing. I even plugged the charger into my old og droid and it started charging right up. But when i hook it up to my sgn. Nothing. Unless it's off of course. ***? Also, nothing happens when i try to hook it up to my computer. And nothing happens when i use a different mini usb/charger. But it's not the mini usb since it started charging my og droid but not my sgn.

Help/suggestions?

Issue: Phone Won't Charge Unless I Restart It - Galaxy Nexus

Is anyone having charging issues? I am not talking about a loose port or anything. Basically i have tested this up and down and i found its not a port issue. But what happened is if i plug my phone in it may or may not start charging. Then if i unplug it and plug it back in. Wont charge. If i plug my phone in. Turn off my phone. Start it up. When it is done booting it will charge. Then if i unplug it and plug it back in. Boom no more charging. Same thing if i connect it to my computer cause i thought it might be the ac adapter.

So summery. Phone wont charge unless i restart the phone. Anyone else having this issue?

Samsung Epic 4g - Usb Port Not Enough To Charge Epic While Using It

When i plug my samsung epic into the usb port of my dell desktop at work i can see it's charging, but the charge is apparently not enough to even remain at battery level if i'm using it to phone, message, speaker or tether. This is not the case when i plug the phone into the wall charger (espcially my wife's 900ma evo charger or my dodge ram's usb port)damn shame really as it limits how long i can tether for.

Can't Wakeup Phone Using Bluetooth - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have paired the phone with my bluetooth successfully and had used it a few times. The problem is when the phone is sleeping (i.e. Screen locked), i tried pressing the button on my bluetooth but it won't wake up the phone. I have to first unlock the screen and then place calls. This is very inconvenient when i was driving, and defeat the purpose of using the bluetooth. I have been using the iphone 4 before and it does not have this problem. When i press the button on the bluetooth, it wakes the phone up and activate voice command immediately, even when the screen is locked.

I have searched everywhere in the setting and can't find anything that allows me to do this. Your help would be appreciated for this noob.

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Contacts Suddenly Disappeared

Device: samsung galaxy s
Os : android 2. 1

Basically i don't use google account to sync my contacts because the groups thing doesn't work the way i want it. So instead, i use kies, which allow you to sync outlook contact with your phone, which all worked fine. However, last night before going to bed i sent a few sms message and everything was fine, i.e. All contacts were there. But this morning when i work up because of a text message from a strange number, which was actually from a friend of mine, so i thought he has a new number so i tried to update his contacts but when i click on "update existing contact" my address book pops up and is . Empty.

After that, i opened my contacts and nothing is there. I turned on displaying google contacts and its all fine, but when i choose phone contact, absolutely nothing is displayed. I did absolutely nothing last night, and i don't believe i cleared all my contacts while in my sleep (because i don't even know how to do that while im awake). Btw, i have been adding quiet a lots of contacts over the last 2 weeks (since last time i sync with kies) so i really need them back.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket - Phone Randomly Shutting Off

I had my 1st skyrocket for almost 2 weeks when i began getting random shutdowns. Sometimes i would have to pull the battery to get it to respond again & other times i would be able to get it to turn back on by pressing the power button for about 30sec. I took the phone back to the at&t shop where they were baffled but replaced the battery because that was the only issue they knew of. After a day or so, it began shutting off again. I returned to the store where they replaced the phone.

I have now had my 2nd phone for 2 days and it randomly shut down again this a. M. I love this phone but i am leary of keeping it in light of these issues and from the problems i have read from other owners on this forum. Has anyone had any luck in solving this issue? . Btw, the battery is charging/draining normally and i have only used the charger that came with the phone.

Samsung Galaxy S - Tried New Firmware Now Phone Won't Start

So i decided to try and upgrade to froyo after i couldn't get the kries reg. Trick to work. I was using [13. 10. 10][cf-root v1. 2] jph jpk jp6 jpm jpa - superuser+busybox+2e, cwm compat! - Xda-developers website to upgrade the kernal? To enable "2e" recovery, apparently what i needed to do to be able to do the firmware upgrade listed on [rom] [froyo] voodoo doctor edition v2. 0 | universal lagfix | cwm recovery - xda-developers.

So anyway i obvioiusly missed a big chunk of information on the basics, and basically i put the phone in download mode "down volume, home, power" then i opened odin and chose the . Tar file i downloaded from the first link, and hit start. After this the phone just sits at the galaxy start screen white letters saying "galaxy s gt0i9000 samsung"

It just sits there won't go any further. So obviously i've flashed it with the wrong firmware (kernal). I can still go into download mode, so i'm guessing there is a way to fix this i'm just not sure how >. <. I've gone into reset mode and hit reset to factory but that obviously doesn't help as it resets it to the last flashed firmware which was bad.

The phone was brought from smartphones, htc, sony ericsson, blackberry, nokia, brodit, hp ipaq, palm - clove technology the details i have from the phone in kries regeditnd the phone's download mode to restore it so i can at least turn it on?

Voice Echo When Call Using Phone Cover On Samsung Galaxy S2

I got my samsung galaxy s2 a few days ago and i'm having problems with a voice echo. Whenever someone calls me they complain that they can hear their own voice, to the point where i'm being asked to call them back on a different phone. The problem only happens when i use a phone cover (currently using the case mate tough case). I think it has something to do with the noise reduction, as the problem stops when i turn this off.

Does anyone know if this is normal or if the handset is faulty? I've tried different phone covers but the same thing happens. I'd love to be able to switch off the noise reduction permanently but there doesn't seem to be this option.

Static Noises During Phone Calls - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

During phone calls the first few minutes are fine, but after a couple the person on the other end gets loud screeches, laser noises, static and eventually drop offs. At first this only occurred when i had incoming calls, but now its both and consistent. Verizon told me that this was my sim card and replace it. Im now on my 3rd sim card with the same problems. So do i keep getting bad sims, or is it my phone. Have any of you experienced this?

3g Turn Off When Phone Screen Is Locked - Samsung Galaxy Ace

I have a samsung galaxy ace. I have turned on 3g and it is working but as soon as my screen locks it goes off and i do not receive emails or whatsapp messages. When i pick up my phone and unlock the screen, the 3g symbol is not there but a few seconds later it appears and my emails and whatsapp messages come through. This is very annoying i want my 3g to be on all the time and emails and messages to come through immediately without me having to touch my phone. Can anyone help?

I have had the phone for 2 weeks and 3g was working fine until yesterday. I started using wifi for the first time yesterday at the office and i noticed this problem with the 3g yesterday evening. I definitely have my 3g turned on. As it works but only when the screen is unlocked.

Bluetooth Device Crashing Phone After 2.3.5 Update For Samsung Galaxy S2

I never had issues with my phone until i updated to 2. 3. 5 and one day i accidentally turned on bluetooth got a notification about bluetooth devices and it just crashed. After that it would reload to lock screen within several seconds but the bluetooth will automatically turn on again and proceed to crash my phone.
