Note 4 Screen Glitches
Problem: My phone while charging the screen will glitch out and will stutter . the screen will change screens really fast and have a visual stutter effect but stops once i unplug it and touch the screen.
Solution: This issue could be caused by electrical noise coming from the charging unit. Try replacing the charging cord that you are using. Sometimes the insulation of the wires inside this cord gets stripped due to constant bending or coiling. If the problem still remains then try using a different wall charger.
If after performing both steps above the problem still persist then I suggest you have your phone checked at an authorized service center as this issue could be caused by a problem with the charging port or other internal component.
Note 4 Cracked Screen Repair
Problem: My wife came home & her screen was cracked. Not sure how. I was surprised that the cheapest way to get running again was $220+tax to replace the screen. Even Craigslist was $300 and up for a used phone. Any other options that might be less expensive? (Not under insurance plan, not a warranty issue,…..) A fast reply would be appreciated. She wants her phone back! Ha
Solution: If the screen of the phone is already damaged then you will have to replace the whole display assembly. The cheapest way to do this is to buy the assembly then do the replacement yourself. The price of this display assembly ranges from $150 to $280 depending on where you buy the display. As far as installing the screen on your phone you could check some of the tutorial videos that are uploaded on YouTube for the exact procedure.
Note 4 Screen Dims Then Goes Black
Problem: Screen dims and goes black. After waiting for a 10 seconds time and pressing home or on/off key to lighten up the screen, it takes a 3 seconds time to lighten the screen. It also happens both while speaking or standing by. It only does not happen if I wait a few seconds (like 2-3) to press a button. It’s like a battery saving sleep mode. But all my batt. saving options are off!
Solution: Try to check if your phone is in power saving mode in the phone settings. Although this should not cause your phone display to take a long time to respond it i still a good idea to turn off power saving mode. If the phone is not in power saving mode then I suggest you perform the following troubleshooting steps listed below.
- Wipe the cache partition of your phone from recovery. Sometimes too much cached data in your phone can cause this type of issue. Deleting this cached data is one way of resolving this problem.
- Start your phone in Safe Mode. Check if the issue still occurs. If it doesn’t then an app you installed in your phone could be causing this problem. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
- Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
Note 4 Screen Is Black After Phone Got Wet

Solution: It looks like the phone has suffered some water damage that has affected the display. The thing about water entering a phone is that sometimes the phone will work fine but then issues will occurs a day, a week, or even a month after the phone got wet. Before bringing your phone to an authorized service center for checking try to perform the troubleshooting steps listed below.
- Access the recovery mode. If you are able to access this mode and see the various settings then I suggest you try wiping the cache partition first then reboot your phone.
- If the above step fails then do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data so make sure to have a backup copy first before proceeding with this step.
Note 4 Keeps Turning Off

Solution: Try to check first if this problem is caused by issues with the phone software. To do this perform the following troubleshooting steps listed below. Move to the next step if the current step does not work.
- Turn your phone off. Take out the battery and microSD card ( if you have one installed). Press and hold the power button for at least a minute. Reinsert just the battery then turn on your phone. Check if the issue still occurs.
- Wipe the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode. Restart your phone then check if the issue still occurs.
- Start your phone in Safe Mode. Check if the issue occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then it could be caused by an app. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

Note 4 Screen Not Responding To Touch
Problem: Hello. I got my new note 4 in the post. On first turn on the screen did not pick up my finger only the s pen. I set everything up and then did an update then the screen responded to finger touch. It keeps switching between responding and unresponding to finger touch but completely fine with the s pen. I reset to factory defaults now it’s still got this error. Any help please i don’t want this issue for 2 years
Solution: This issue is most likely caused by a problem with the phone digitizer. Since you already performed a factory reset which didn’t resolve the issue I suggest you bring the phone to an authorized service center and have it checked.
Note 4 Not Working After Getting Wet
Problem: My phone got wet I put it into rice still no screen cant answer phone cannot see help please!
Solution: If you already tried drying the phone in a bag of rice for at least 48 hours with no effect then the phone could already be water damaged. If this is the case I suggest you bring the device to an authorized service center. Each component of the phone needs to be checked to get to the root of this issue.
