Samsung Infuse - Wouldn't charge & now won't turn on!
02-07-2013 09:53:35 PM
Two weeks ago, my dear little Samsung Infuse began giving me issues when I would plug it in to charge. The following three things would occur (a) constantly went from charging to not charging. (b) wouldn't charge at all (c) would charge if one specific charger was connected to it (my friends that I had to swap with because all 10 of mine wouldn't work). It got to the point where I found my older samsung that i no longer use and kept that one on the charger at all times so that I could swap batteries from phone to phone as necessary, which was a major pain in the rear.
Fast forward to about 5 minutes ago....It is turned on and connected to the miracle charger and it shows that the charge is at about 80%. I walk away and come back to a phone that is powered off. Still showing the same level of charge. I pressed the power button, the Samsung image comes on the screen, then it goes black again.
I refuse to pay $200.00 for an insurance claim when the same phone is being offered for only $0.01 these days.
Any advice or suggestions would be great!
Thanks in advance!

Hi!! How old is your phone?? When you swap out the battery, does it do the same thing when you try to charge it?? Does it show the same for both batteries??

Your having the problem with multiple batteries and chargers so I would pop the battery out and take a close look at where the
battery makes contact with the phone. Are the prongs clean ? Failure to make a solid contact could be why the phone ramdonly quits.
