Why won't my phone re-charge?

My Nokia N96 worked great then suddenly wouldn't recharge. Charger and battery check out OK but not the little tabs the battery fits into. Can this be repaired? Is it something I can do on my own?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Its something inside the phones circuit board.

If its under warranty, you can go here to request a repair.

This is assuming that the phone runs fine with the battery in it (charged, of course)

A workaround is to have a separate charger for the phone (PITA but, if its out of warranty and you don't want to pay to repair...)

Heres a charger.

And Heres a separate battery.

so do you mean that if I get a charger for the battery that is independent of the phone then, if the phone works otherwise (which I believe it does) my problem will be solved?
