Cellphone stopped working after recharging!

by Aderosa / September 5, 2014 11:29 AM PDT

Hello, I have a Samsung cellphone from Verizon under a year old with no contract (I don't see any model #). It was ok but now after I recharged it, the cellphone remained all black - just stopped working. I recharged it again and the same thing.

The little manual that came with it is not helpful. Could someone kindly tell me why and how to fix? Thanks ever so much!

Clarification Request
Sorry but just an idea.

I can't tell which phone so try the old unplug the battery and wait a minute. Put the battery back in and try again.
If the battery is non-removable, press and hold the power button for about a minute, try again.

If that fails, back to the service counter.

It's a good idea, Bob, and thank you, but I tried it and no results. I've been trying to get Verizon on the phone being they know what's the model # etc. but it seems I'll have to go to their store after all. :o) Adela

I did have a problem with my Samsung S3 - when charger was not been able to charge my battery.
Did you try another battery? You could charge your battery outside of your phone.

Thank you so much, but I asked a neighbor who told me to press "End" and it did the trick. I had pressed it but didn't keep it pressed long enough for the system to come to life again... :o)

Same thing happens with my phone however the charger was not ok and it did not charged my phone properly. I was so upset then a friend of mine solve my problem. I can't believe some things are so simple yet seems difficult in the moment of tension.

I am also having the same problem since the last two hours. In addition to that my phone is also restarting itself.

Did you follow the suggestions above?
I think "back to the service counter" will solve your problems.

There is no reason you should have to reboot every time you want to charge the phone.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
