    Phone won't charge won't turn on

    I don't know what rooted means. I have had my phone for 7 months.

    About a week ago I noticed my phone wouldn't charge. I moved the cord to a different outlet and it still wouldn't charge. I switched to my husbands cord and it still wouldn't charge. I plugged it back in with the original cord in the original spot and it started charging.

    All seemed fine for a few days until about 2 days ago my phone wouldn't charge again. I tried unplugging it and moving it and plugging it into the computer but nothing worked, until I plugged the cord in and left it at an angle it finally charged.

    And then today I tried everything I have tried before and not even angling it will work. I tried removing the battery for a while. Charging without the battery connected to the wall. Charging without the battery connected to the computer. The phone has now completely died and I can't tell if what I'm doing is working anymore.

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you might have a loose or dirty charging port on your phone. See if you can look inside for dirt or any kind of corrosion. If your port is loose then you might have to send the phone in for warranty/repair. See if you can try another battery just in case that is bad.

    Thank you Paul. The socket is pretty loose and the cord falls out of it if it's moved. Husband is out of town sp i cant try using his battery. What would you suggest I do next? Is this covered under the warranty?

    Well it could go either way but I would certainly hope that warranty would be covered. Are you using the Samsung charging cable it came with? If so I would tell them exactly that.
