1st check the charger has not failed by trying it with another same model handset.

2, See if your battery is ok again by trying it in another same model fone.

3, Make sure the ports are clean.

If this fails then you may need a firmware update which can be carried out by a service centre.

If pushing the charger in resolves the issue then an engineer would be able to resolve this to a more permanent rectification.

He/she would just open up the handset and re plant the connectors.
