    My samsung galaxy s3 says it's charging;the light turns red and the electric bolt comes on but it isn't actually charging. I got a new battery, didn't work. I got a new charging port and still it didn't work. Can someone please offer suggestions as to what the problem may be?

    New battery? Charge it until the phone tells you it's fully charged - which could take up to 24 hours on the wall charger (and longer through the computer). Old battery - same thing, let it charge for at least 24 hours before trying to determine where there's a problem (if there still is one). A fully discharged battery (as fully discharged as it will get before the phone shuts off) won't show enough of a charge in the first few hours to do more than let the phone turn on before it dies. No boot, just a flash on the screen and the battery is dead again.
