i accidently spilled a drink on my phone 2 days ago, and it wont charge ever since. when i plug my charger in its shows the thunderbolt but no charge. I took it to a small repair shop they sort of fixed it but i after i took it home it charged for a while and then it doesnt anymore.

I also can't plug the usb to my computer I live in a small place so we dont really have any good repair shops! i need some suggestionsHELP ME PLEASE! i have samsung galaxy s3 and it's been less than 2 months since i got it
My Samsung S3 wont charge
Sunday 28th of July 2013
I have had the S3 since September and it hasnt givin me much trouble (except for the batt life) For the past few months 2/3, the phone would not charge unless I had it at an angle, against books, standing up, everyway possible! Then the charger gave out, or so I thought! I then could only charge it via the USP connected to my laptop, that eventually gave out too. Two chargers later and it will not charge at all. The same thing happened to my S1 before I upgraded. The phone itself is fine (except for the fact it wont make any outgoing calls) I went into Vodafone yesterday and as usual they were minus help. I even bought a new charger and nothing will work. Has anybody has a similar experience? If so what happened? Please help. Fiona.

Hi, My Samsung Galaxy S3 wont charge!! My mobile carrier is Tmobile btw. Anyways I've had this problem with this phone before and also it ended up freezing and wouldn't open so I had to get a replacement. The people said it wasn't the battery but my phone itself. So i have the same battery, sim, etc just a different phone. Anyways sowith this new phone...I've had it for maybe 2 weeks or more. Yesterday night I put it to charge, when I wake up i see it's at 44% but the LED is green meaning it's fully charged. I waited and the phone said it was at 100%....then I didn't touch the phone for an hour or so. I come back to look at the phone and it's at 44% again. I was using the charger that came with the phone and then tried a different cable and it still won't charge.Right now I'm plugging it in the computer and it went up 2% so far.

Galaxy S3 wont charge after replacement
Wednesday 26th of March 2014
My Galaxy S3 wont charge properly. Ive used two separate phone chargers and the charging light and battery charging screen comes up, but it never increases in charge. I sent it in to Samsung and they replaced the charging port and I bought a new battery, but still nothing. Im completely dumbfounded. Any help or ideas? Thank you so much
Samsung S3 Wont stay in charge!

Hi everyone. I have had my Samsung Galaxy S3 for about 6 months now and it has been working like a charm. I have never dropped it, I have never exposed it to any water not even raindrops outside I have been taking awesome care of it because I didn't take very good care of my last phone and learned my lesson for sure. About 3 or 4 weeks ago when I would plug my phone in it would have difficulties starting to charge. I am using the charging cord that came with the phone. its just when I plug it in it goes in and out of charge if I move it around or try and text while charging it , it will disconnect even though it was plugged in. I then tried using a different USB cord, and that did not solve the problem either. it would fit and say that its charging but it would only charge if it was kept completely still. Last night I plugged in my phone when it was already at 83%.. 3 hours later I woke up and noticed I got a notification, so I checked and to my surprise my phone had not gone up in charge at all. I know for sure that my phone had not been knocked off during the night or something,

so heres what happen, two nights ago i plugged my charger in my galaxy s3 like i usually do and it started to blik that red light like then its charging but it didnt. it bliked an few times and stop so i unplugged it and tried again but nothing happen. then i just got to sleep because it still had like 30% battery left. the next morging i plugged it into my computer to charge and it did. i drove over to my girlfriends house and after some time the battery was flat so i asked her if she had an samsung charger, and she did. the charger was an older model but i have tried it before and it worked but this time it didnt. i didnt think most of it because it was an older model charger. anyway i got home today and tried my charger again, didnt work. then i tried my sisters charger (she got an s3 mini), didnt work. then i plugged it into my computer and it didnt even respond. i couldnt even go into my files on the computer. so now i'm clueless what to do. one thing is that it wont charge, the other thing is that all my stuff i got on my phone cant i even access. anyone know what i can do ? th
