Why is my cell phone dead and does not charge when connected to a power source?



If your mobile phone has been working well, it will not be a major problem to get it working again. Below are a few things you can try:

1.  If the cell phone does not “power-up” when it is connected to a power source, the first thing you should do is disconnect it from the power source and plug in another device, that you know is working, to make sure that the power source is “live.”

2.  If the power source is “live” try removing the mobile phone battery and then replacing it into the phone. This “resets” the system and the mobile phone usually comes back to life. Plug it back into the power source until it is fully charged.

3.  If the “reset” does not work, the power cord might be faulty and should be replaced.

4.  If your cell phone is still inoperable, take it to your cell phone supplier for examination.
