SOURCE: LG scoop not charging well
The problem is your charge port on the phone. I've already had to have mine replaced and my daughters due to this issue. My girlfriends son had this phone to and has had his replaced twice already.
It is not entirely the charger! The problem is the phone port. The rep at alltel told me this phone is the most problematic phone they sell due to this issue!
Have the phone replaced under warranty if its under a year old, otherwise hope you have your insurance!
Other things to consider before having it replaced:
Backup your contact list! They cannot transfer it for you to the new phone when the port is bad and you cannot save your contacts to an SDcard either.
If you have any music, pictures etc, get the microSD card and back them all up to that so that you don't lose them either. Just don't buy the card from alltel, they want twice as much for it as you can get it for from Walmart/BestBuy etc..
Hope this help any of you out here from experiencing the pains that I've gone through with it..

Here's the manual for your LG 420G. Please check the link and save a copy in your computer:

use something like a small screwdriver to bend the two metal contacts inside the phone socket up a little so they press more firmly into the mating contacts in the channels on the charger plug.
if the charger plug wants to fall out, you can bend up a cutout/tab in the top metal shell part a little so the plug "clicks in" a little better.
it's a bad design.
