Hi,

I have had my phone for about 1 year, and suddenly one night it stopped charging. I tried using my USB connector and my mum's charger (Also has a samsung galaxy s phone). I have also tried a new battery, my phone did work with this battery as it had some charge on, but of course when the battery ran out of charge it didn't work. Nothing comes on the screen when i plug in the charger. Occasionally i get the little 'thinking' circle appear and then it goes away. I haven't seen this in a while.

Please can anyone help? I still have a year on my contract and cannot afford a new phone. Currently using a retro (aka rubbish) phone.

Thanks,
Jen

Hi,

The only way i could find to 'fix' this issue is to buy an external battery charger and a spare battery, and swap the batteries over.

I agree, sounds like a faulty MicroUSB port. If your mother's phone is charging using the same cable, you cancel that as the part that's failing.

I have noticed sometimes while I have my phone connected to my laptop that sometimes the connection drops out. Maybe try fiddling with the cable in the port to see if that does anything. Failing that... Off to Samsung for repair Sad
