I’ve experienced this issue before and I noticed a lot of
people are also having the same issue and perhaps you have ask the question
over again that why does my phone only charge when off? Strange I guess; the
truth is, to every android phone problem, there is always a solution.

hassle, and changes how the phone is recognized if at all. Because of that, you

how to fix an android that charges only when off
1. Power off your phone, and wait for like fifteen seconds
before you start getting setup to fix the issue
2. Examine the port carefully to see where the pin is bent
3. Straighten out the pin carefully to avoid causing any
damage to it.

have a removable battery, I suggest you remove it completely and use another
different battery compatible with your smart phone. Battery incompatibility
sometimes causes charging distortion.

when they are out dated.

  1. I once experience this type of problem on my old foolish injoo phone and even the company couldn't solve the problem. I tried all i could but no solution. Eventually, the battery began to swell up until I finally gave it up.
