Default Samsung Admire indicates "being charged" even though it is unplugged from the charger

HI everyone. I have one this Samsung Admire SCH-R720 for almost 2 months and it has been working great. Yesterday my wife noticed it was making a beep noise "on-off" like. It happened while it was unplugged on my counter. Then when I connected it to the charger it stopped making the "on-off"sound. This morning when I turned on It made the noise once and then the screen show that particular message like a little battery symbol on the right corner of the screen being charged. Any ideas about what can fix the problem? And, can anyone tell me how to do a hard reset to my phone?. Thanks in advance!

No clue. U r the second to post this.

But hard reset is turn phone off, then hold vol. down, back, and power buttons till the screen comes on. U will then be in recovery mode. Navigate with the Volume down button to clear cache user data and press the home button to confirm. It will be set back o how u got it. Just make sure u back up any apps and such before u do it.

Ok now I'm sure it is the phone. I have 2 Samsung admires n both phones are now having the same problem. Both phones were purchased the same day but 1 started acting up 1 month b4 the other... would warranty cover this?

Tried all that still the same. its the area where u connect the charger on the phone. I used a toothpick to poke that area n it seemed make it stop charging but goes back to charging when I stop. as if something inside the phones chip is touching with something to make of think that its plugin.

This happened to me once. I powered off the phone then pulled the battery and used my screen cloth to wipe it and the battery compartment down then put it back in turned the phone on and have not had this issue again.

Not a fix, but the workaround I am using is to rename the sound Charger_Connection.ogg to Charger_Connection.og.

Phone still thinks it is charging every now and then, but at least it keeps it to itself. lol

File is located in /system/media/audio/ui

You will need to mount it r/w to rename

Good luck returning it if you have metropcs. I have same problem, took it in today & was told that I had to come back tomorrow to speak to the manager. If the manager okays a replacement, it will take 7 days. 7 days without a phone and this new phone will not turn on after ther clerk at metro removed the battery.

It seems like the USB Jack ion the phone is loose or otherwise broken/ has a pin crissing.

As for returning anything to metro, this is the exact reason I have a Motorola razr (as in 2002 pimpin) and a zte flip phone I keep in a drawer.
If one of my androids poops out on me I just dial *228 and switch phones.

a friend has the same problem as the OP, the phone says to be connected to the charger but not receiving, definitely it has to be a factory problem with this model

ETA....... i recheck the phone it does that when the charge is under 35 percent

My phone started doing this yesterday.. I have to charge it all day because it seems that the battery drains faster then normal now. Would I be able to get a new one by going to metro? If So, would I have to reflash back to 2.3.4 with the stock apps reinstalled to do this?

Me too. Have mine duck taped to a kitchen cabinet door at present. It fits just inside the handle, tight enough to be still. I managed to rig the charging cord to the phone and the cabinet door, and duck tape so that I hope it is still charging. Took me 2 hrs. to configure the cord and tape so that it would work. Very afraid it has quit charging now that I am not standing there staring at it. But if I touch the phone to find out, I know it is all over. Another two hours of that and I will likely end up placing it in front of one of my car tires. I am now hoping that when I take it to metro tomorrow that it can turn on. I will be so angry if my metro backup crapped out (my roommate's crapped out when her admire bit the dust less than a week after purchasing it - she lost over 500 phone numbers, as well as pictures; no backup). I agree with the comment about the USB jack loose or pins messed up. Whatever it is, I am not a happy camper. Is Metro admitting to this problem? If I have to go over there and fight with them only to end up having to buy a new phone anyway, I will just switch to another cell company. Anyone have any luck?

Exclamation Started off with same problem . . .

My problem started off as that. I thought the charge port was dirty so I used alcohol with a Q-Tip and it seemed to fix it for a little while. Now I'm having a bigger problem and I have searched everywhere for a solution. My phone now will try to start then restarts. It doesn't even get past the Mfg and model screen. I don't know if the issue extends off from this problem but any advice would be great. I will check on forum every few minutes.

I'm not gonna give up ! !

I got my phone on Black Friday, it started doing this about a month ago. My boyfriend got his Admire 2 months ago and it started having this problem a week after mine, and my sister also has the same phone, it's doing the same thing. I would think this would be something we could take to Samsung because it's obviously a defect with this phone?

You'd think. The one they gave me to replace my first one w/ this problem also has the exact same problem. So I must've gotten a refurb that couldn't be refurbed bc this phone is just a problem child. Going thru chargers like candy. They don't appreciate the gymnastics required of them in order to complete a circuit and potentially allow the phone to actually charge for a bit.

Do not do a hard reset if you want to keep your contacts and pics! When my roommate took hers into an actual corporate metro pcs store, not one of the fly by night ones, they did a hard reset on her admire without her knowledge. It not only did not fix the phone, it erased all of her contacts, pics, everything, AND erased everything from her Metro Backup $1 a month service. So, she had a phone that didn't work, and no way to recpver any of her contacts. She of course had had it after that. She bought a different model phone and Metro was never able to recover anything they wiped off when they did a hard reset. They never even asked her if she had backed up her files. Do not depend on the metro backup service if you subscribe to it.

Default suggestions for a well made admire wall dock? car charger?

...all of us with the same issue and the fine folks at METROPCS continue to sell this phone and will not exchange for a different model. Scoundrels!
utterly disappointing. right now, i need advice on a new car charger for the admire. brands? the wall charger looks appealing (from ebay/chinese crap) but reliability is iffy on the ebay stuff. suggestions for a well made admire wall dock?

I wish I'd just bought a new model. My refurb replacement that I had to pay $11 for I think? (after a 3 day waiting period) is just awful. Same charging problems, overheats till the phone is too hot to touch, is always way off on the % of available battery, blows out chargers constantly, etc etc. Before you exchange yours, consider saving yourself the grief.

Oh shit! And i was blaming my wife because she told me that she dropped some tea on the phone so we were thinking that was the problem, anyway we bought two lg connect 4G instead and its way better. Im still using admire like mp3, remote control and stuff like that. Its good to know that now it can go to 900 mhz.

Ok, I think i found a solution. you need to insert something under the micro usb connecter. I cut up a small piece of card stock paper and it slid in perfectly secured it with tape. it's been 1 hour and it seems to be working fine.

hope this helps.

obviously you need to take this paper out when you need to charge it. :P

Smile The Toothpick Solution

I too have a Samsung SCH-R720 from MetroPCS that constantly beeps because the phone thinks it is charging even though the charger is unplugged. The white light in the charging icon goes on and off with the the annoying beep.

Others alluded that the problem is the center prong of the micro-USB connector touching the bottom. I used a toothpick to bent the prong up a bit and but that did not fully solve the problem. I inserted a micro-USB connector without connecting the other end to 110v but the darn annonying beep still happened.

At this point I am not sure of the solution but am a bit leery about the Reset solution.

i had the same problem, but i was able to get it working by using a new Samsung USB cable and a Samsung wall adapter, and for some odd reason not really sure why but it seemed to fix it, because i haven't had any problems for about 7 months now equally as strange i found out that if i use any other USB or wall adapter that's not Samsung then it will kill my battery.

I inserted a micro-USB connector without connecting the other end to 110v but the darn annonying beep still happened.

At this point I am not sure of the solution but am a bit leery about the Reset solution.

Someone help/ my phone (Samsung Admire SCH-R720) has been charging on its own without the charger for a week. Charging not charging beeping which is killing the battery.Went to 4 Metro stores no one knows what to do. Talked to Samsung they dont even know what's causing it to charge/not charge by itself. I cant do a factory reset and lose everything. Anyone have any idea what I can do? Funny I pay Metro $5/month for insurance yet I need to pay a deductible. I hate this phone! Sadly I can't afford a new one and its past the warranty. Any ideas?

So here is the deal with the SCH-R720.

1)If you used any charger other than your specified phone charger you may have damaged your battery, which in fact, triggers the behavior that the phone beeps as if it is charging when it is not plugged in.

2)If you try to charge your phone and the phone says it is finished charging - and dies after several minutes unplugged - you have this same issue.

3)If you cannot turn on your phone after you have turned it off - even after putting in a charged battery - you have this same issue.

4)Does it feel like your battery has expanded - no longer flat and will wobble on a flat table or surface - you have this same issue.

Remedies:

First - you MUST get a new battery for your phone. Buy 2!! They are 3 dollars each plus shipping. I bought mine at RAKUTAN (dot) com. You want to buy R900 Li-ion 3.7V 1250mAh for SAM R900/i8910HD. Sorry I can't post a link here because I am new. Just use google and search 'replacement battery for SCH-R720'.

Next - put your new battery in - connect phone to charger and turn on. Leave it on the charger for 12 hours.

Next - Your new battery should be fully charged and hopefully your phone indicates that the phone is fully charged as well. Even if it doesn't - go to the last step.

Next - Shut off your phone. Wait 30 seconds and then push down the Volume DOWN button and hold it, also press down the Arrow Return button and hold it, and then press down the power button and hold it.

This brings you into factory mode. DO NOT DO ANYTHING.

When you see the factory display - press the HOME key only.

Your phone will reboot and turn on - and act normal. If you have the same problem as me - I have to reboot on the factory screen to get my phone to start up when it is NOT connected to the phone charger.

This is a lame problem but may allow you to keep using your phone until you get another. Do not WIPE your phone - it doesn't solve the problem which is most likely in the power circuit and was damaged due to excessive heat. Again - DO NOT WIPE YOUR PHONE. It will not solve the problem.

I had this same issue. Happend 2-3 days after I rooted it and was new. It has since stopped now. Gradually quit doing it so often and it's now been at least a couple weeks since it's done it
