Tuesday 11th of September 2012
I have an Galaxy Nexus Android phone from Google (AT&T) and recently I got some substance in the charger outlet that burned the outlet and the charger. I cannot charge my phone now to turn it on and I also do not have the information on my phone backed up. I really want to get this phone working again because the information stored on my phone is really important to me but Samsung says that they cannot fix the phone without deleting all the information on it. Is there a way to get around this? Please help!
Galaxy Note 10.1 (n8000) - Red X on Power Icon
Sunday 30th of December 2012
Good morning all, New to the Samsung / Android family - had a ipad but was looking for a tablet that had a pen... so I purchased the Galaxy Note 10.1 and I was impressed with the s pen... I purchased my galaxy in early November and configured the unit without an issue. I had it charging from the power charger and my pc, without an issue... Then in mid November, I turned the unit on and it asked it had a software update; which I let it do... it took about 10 minutes and all looked good... I then needed to charge my unit, and noticed the red x on the icon (regardless whom was charging the unit - power charger or PC/USB).. I noticed if I left the unit on, the charge would take for ever but it would charge. I turned the unit off, and connected to the power charger and the battery icon appeared on the display and I would leave this over night an the unit was fully charged. My question, before the software upgrade everything was great and after the upgrade I started to have this issue... Could this software upgrade cause this issue? Thanks in advance...
Wall charger question
Wednesday 16th of May 2012
Hello all, Future Note LTE user here. Currently I am using an iPhone 4, but I will be purchasing the Galaxy Note LTE on ATT either Thursday, or next Tuesday after work. For the record, I VERY much dislike my iPhone, and can't wait to get on Android. My wife has a Samsung Infuse, and I love it. [QUESTION] I already have 4-5 iPhone wall chargers, can I just plug a micro USB cable into that and charge the Note LTE or an Infuse without issue, or will I need to purchase new wall chargers? Our car chargers have a USB port which will charge the Infuse and/or the iPhone 4 without issue, so I would have to assume this would work, but I wanted to see if anyone has tried this.[/QUESTION] I plan to purchase3-5 or so USB to micro USB cables from Newegg (I like to keep a charger at work, in the car, and at home, and my wife does the same). It will be nice to have a 6 foot charge cable, because sometimes the short ones just don't cut it. Specifically charging our phones at night. The wall plate is in the middle of the headboard, and the phones don't really make it to the night stands, which is anno
iPhone user takes another swing at android phone G2X and android fails
Saturday 18th of June 2011
Having a iPhone since they first came out i loved it. Well I got bored last year and decided to change it up with a samsung galaxy. Phone was ok, battery life was hoooorrribbllee, charger on the top? Wtf and weak sound out of ear phones. Fast forward to now. Got bored with my iPhone 4, dumped it, got a G2X, I can't even go a day without having a phone that will stay charged. Go to use the Sirius app, I can't hear crap, same thing with music player. I'm sorry the software is great but google needs to design their own phone, have only one just like iPhone a f make sure it's done right. All I read is bow all these android phones and horrible battery life! I mean I could go 2 days without having to charge my iPhone and that was with heavy usage since it's my work phone. Yet I have a fully charged G2x last night, wake up at 3 this morning to a scolding hot phone and 3 percent left.. What crap.

Galaxy S3 charging issue
Tuesday 04th of February 2014
Hii, Since a couple of days I have a charging issue with my Galaxy S3. I use CM11(Android 4.4). I always charged my phone with the charger that came with the phone, more than a year without any issues. But a few days ago, the phone only charges after some tinkering. So pull out the charger, put him back, push a little bit left/right etc. Finally he charges, but with some little movements he stopped and I need to tinkering again. This was going on 1/2days. At the second day the battery was almost empty at school, but a schoolmate had an portable charger. So I tried to charge my phone with this charger, but also with the portable charger I needed to tinkering a bit before he starts charging. Back home I tried to charge my phone with the original charger but noting happened, even after some tinkering. So I tried to charge via USB from my PC, this worked fine without any problems, just put the cable in and it charges good. After I knew the connector was not broken, I tried again the normal charger, but nothing.. I tried several outlets in the house and another Samsung charger but nothing
Battery will not charge - item covered under warranty but it is a US item and I live in the UK
Tuesday 11th of March 2014
I live in the UK and purchased my tablet from eBay shop Eurotronics on 24/02/2014. The Tab Pro 10.1 was actually an American tablet, as it wasn't yet released in the UK until mid-March (it was my birthday on 28th February and my other half wanted something to give me on my birthday). Any how the tablet came on time and received it and it was working ok, then I noticed that the battery was charging painfully slowly. The charger that came with it was obviously a US charger so I couldn't use it, but I have tried my android phone charger (I use for my HTC One without problems) and it won't charge it past 10% after about 4 hours charging, and plugging it into my laptop with the usb cable doesn't work any better. I've ordered a new charger that is yet to come and I hope that may help. Has anyone else experienced similar problems? I figured the sooner I act the better, so I contacted Samsung (UK) and gave them my details and whatever and they said that they can book it in for repair as it is covered under warranty, etc etc. But then I receive another phone call saying as the item has a US s
My Android 4.3 out of a sudden will not charge unless it's turned off!
Thursday 22nd of May 2014
Hello there, I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Android 4.3 installed on it. I bought it only a month ago, so it is brand new. Out of a sudden, today it randomly wouldn't charge when I plugged it in the charger (the one with the adaptor). I tried with other 2 USB cables, with the SSUB cable and with 2 adaptors and it wouldn't work with any of these (all of which work perfectly with my other devices). More specifically, when plugged in either my laptop or my PC, nothing at all will happen (even if it's turned off). So, the only time it works with these cables is when it's connected to my charger adaptors and the device is turned off. As a consequence, I cannot transfer any items to my SD card or charge it while it's on, which is ridiculous. Please help me out, the phone is brand new, rooted and I haven't installed anything "weird" apart from the usual Facebook, YouTube, Skype apps etc. I also tried a factory reset, but nothing changed. Furthermore, I tried it while having removed my SD card (in case there is a virus or something), without any changes again. It should not be

Charger or Battery?
Wednesday 08th of October 2014
Hi I have a s4 and when it was bought it come with eta0u71xwe which I think is the wrong charger for the s4 but it has worked fine and charged at 1200mah up until the last couple weeks. The phone weren't picking it up at all so I decided to buy a new genuine cable and still didn't work so started using my charger and cable from an lg gpad which is a 2a charger and again everything was fine was fine for a few days but over the past week or so even this charger has started being temperamental and sometimes will charge fine other times it won't charge and sometimes it will charge but cut off and on continuously. (Even without touching the cable or phone) Earlier on today the phone completely died and I stuck the charger in and it booted into factory mode with the green android logo so I hit the home button and volume down and it reset fine. Now it charges but is taking forever it is currently charging at 300mah/340mah/400mah sometimes it will go up to 1900mah (but not actually charging the phone) I don't know what else it could be there has being no new installed apps and a factory rese
