Re: HELP..MY Month old Samsung NOt Charging sometimes
Thanks for your Community post regarding your device charging issues. The device will usually charge while it ios powered off, and the LED light will indicate the charger is connected. In the event you are experiencing issues with the device charging, I would suggest taking it to your nearest Sprint S&R center and have technician triage the device. This will ensure if there is defects with your device. If you decide to take it into a store please, make sure you take your charger, the device, and of course the battery. Taking all the components will also help to determine if any other accessories are defective. Please keep me posted on the outcome.
Thanks for your time.
