Weird Charging Issue

I have noticed recently that sometimes my phone will not charge if its attached to my car charger or my home charger unless I completely turn off the device first? After it charges a bit, I'll turn it back on and then it will continue to charge. But I have to do this in order for it to work, I can't just plug it in and have it start chargning while on. Anybody have any ideas what this could mean?

twelvemonkey1,


I do apologize you are having that issue. How long has this been happening for? Also, what type of device/ model do you currently have?

Thank you,

Re: Weird Charging Issue

I think it started several months ago but it happens off and on so I try to just deal with it when it does happen. Sometimes its just the car charger or the home charger and then sometimes it will be both. I have the LG Optimus S. I have had it for about a year since I had to exchange my defunct Blackberry for it under my contract.

twelvemonkey1,


Hmm, have you been into a service and repair location to have a trained tech look into this matter for you further yet? Sprint Store Locator
