    Angry Phone wont charge, black screen with vibration when powered off.

    Okay, so yesterday I was charging my phone and after I unplugged it I realized that it was still indicating that it was plugged in. I saw this and rebooted my phone and everything seemed fine, I went out for the night with my phone that had seemingly no problems. However, after I got home I plugged my phone in and it would not charge. It acted as normal but just would not detect a charger that was plugged in. I turned off my phone and plugged the charger in, when I do this the screen stays completely black and vibrates every 2-3 seconds. I have bought an external battery charger which also sucks and barely works so now im stuck in the situation where unless I fix this, I may potentially go days without a phone because I have to either take it to sprint because my samsung warranty is up or I can wait until the new usb port part I ordered comes in and repair it myself, either way I am hoping this is a simple fix that you guys can help me out with. Does anybody have any ideas on what this is or how I can fix it?

    4 possibilities:

    1. Bad battery
    2. Bad charger
    3. Bad cable
    4. Bad charge port/circuit in phone.


    2 and 3 are inexpensively diagnosed.

    1,2, and 3 are not the case. I have used multiple cables, chargers, and batteries. That's why I came to the conclusion that it's most likely a bad port. However, after I researched this problem I have realized that it's somewhat common so now I have no idea what it can be. I guess I should just wait until tomorrow and take it to sprint, their repair prices are never too bad so I only hope for the best. I can't stand this it's the third time my s4 has failed due to faulty hardware. Its frustrating to say the least, I do nothing to cause this, it just happens.

    Luckily the charging jack is pretty easy to replace if you know your way around a lot wattage iron.

    I've decided to take it to sprint tomorrow to see what they think it is. Like I said they are usually pretty lenient when it comes to pricing, about 6 months ago my screen just randomly stopped working, once again it was bad hardware and sprint originally offered to fix it for 75$ but my phone was still under warranty so I figured let me send it to samsung, turns out the screen actually cracked in the mail so it voided my warranty and I ended up paying 200. I was pretty mad.

    Yet another reason that I strongly advise Square Trade and their drop and spill 2 or 3 year warranty.

    No Hi tech device that's portable and costing >$100 goes without one.

    sometimes its the charging IC, especially f you use a charger with a higher voltage.
