    I have a one month old AT&T Galaxy Note. Yesterday, I woke up to a "Disconnected Battery" warning. The battery didn't charge overnight due to this warning. Looked around this forum and didn't see anything. Then I did a search on Google and saw that this seems to be a fairly frequent occurrence with Samsung phones. Anyway, there were suggestions to remove the battery and wait an hour, try a different battery (I have one), clean the micro USB port, put a piece of tape/paper on the bottom of the battery and place it in the phone.... None of these worked. Then I read this forum: Galaxy note battery disconnected error? - I have a galaxy note running the latest version of gingerbread (2.3.6) & after trying to charge my phone using the car charger I keep getting a "battery disconnected" error every time I plug the phone to char
    It says to drop the phone from about two feet and it'll get rid of this warning. There were a lot of replies that said it worked. What the heck, I tried it. I know it sounds stupid but I did drop it on a table while in its case. The only thing I can say is that I agree with all those other people, IT WORKED! Just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who has the problem.

    I don't know if I could bring myself to drop in my GALAXY NOTE lol. If that worked then your connector pin on the actual phone that connect to the battery might have been jammed. Next time or to anyone having this problem just carefully free up the connector with a finger or paper clip. Hope this helps somebody, & remember ANDROID IS THE FUTURE - KID ANDROID.

    Send it for service! I It's a known issue with the tiny battery port!

    It damages easily and is only compatible with Samsung assecories. I damaged the port using a blackberry micro usb cable which was slightly tighter fitting and the constant forcing it in damaged the tint port!

    I have found this to be the battery in my case, it is not that the battery was bad, it was that the casing around the contacts had become distorted from using an external charger. I used a really sharp knife and removed the affected border between the contacts and the phone is perfect, so have a look at the 3 contacts that mate to the phone and look with the battery installed to see that each of the contacts is sitting firmly against the mating surface. I have had this happen to 2 batteries now, both aftermarket batteries, the original (so far) is still good. This may not fix everybodie's "disconnected battery" warning, but it will surely help someone else out there!

    I tried everything and then decided to take the advice......dropped the phone on the floor, put the battery back in, and it began charging. WOW! Thanks. I thought I was going to have to buy a new phone.

    Okay that was definitely trolling, i thought to myself. I am not going to drop my S3 -untill my battery reads 8% and i figured i gotta do something about this...

    After some intense browsing, i got frustated and thought what the heck. U cast this on urself galaxy... so i open everything and throw my phone to the sofa (hey it's hard leather), gave the docking area a couple of furious taps... and when i plugged the charger, it's charging!!!

    So yeah, as ridiculous as it may sound, it works.
    There's probably a wobbly part around there that would get back into its rightful position with a little nudge

    I had my Galaxy SII which was doing the exact thing as everyone else's phone. Instead of dropping my phone, in fear of breaking it, i gave it a hard smack, and it began working again. I guess it has the same effect.

    I did this and it worked perfectly. Only thing is it reset my clock but that's not a big deal. As long as I'm not replacing my phone for the time being.

    I just experienced the battery disconnected warning when plugging in my Galaxy S4. Luckily, I only had to remove and replace the battery and all was well again. I hope I am never forced to drop it give it a Fonzie whack to make it work.
