battery icon flashes but won't charge
I have a Samsung Prevail from Boost Mobile. It worked fine until last night. Battery died while it was in my bag. Plugged it in to charge. At first, nothing. Then the battery icon appeared. Appeared, disappeared - been flashing on and off like that ever since without charging at all. I can't turn it on to reset it. Tried to reset it by holding down camera/volume/power keys. As soon as the Samsung splash screen showed it was replaced by a black screen with the word "downloading . . . " in green. This also flashed on and off until I let go of the buttons. Phone still won't charge - same flashing on and off of the battery icon. Thoughts? Suggestions? Fixes? Darn thing is only 4 months old. Feeling frustrated.
Thanks so much, Lisa
