S5 Will Not Charge With Original Charger

Problem: My phone won’t charge on its original  charger. My husband recently got a new S5 at work. His phone will charge on my original charger so the charger does work. My phone will not charge on his charger. However, my phone will charge on my Galaxy Tab S charger. It will also charge on my crappy car charger. I did a soft reset and cleared the cache partition. Anything else I can try?

Problem: There are several things to consider when a phone is choosy when it comes to chargers. Below are the troubleshooting steps that needs to be done in this scenario. Move to the next step if the  current procedure fails to fix the problem.

  • Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol. Sometimes this port will have accumulated some dirt or debris which in turn can interfere with the charging process.
  • Charge your phone with its original charger but use a different charging cord.  This cord usually gets damaged easily especially if it is constantly coiled or bent.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

 

 

S5 Use Original Samsung Charger Error

Problem: using original Samsung charger and getting message that phone is slow charging and I should use the original samsung charger.

Related Problem: My phone recently says slow charge please use original charger. I am. It took over 8 hours of charging to go from 10 to 100 percent.

Solution: This issue usually occurs whenever the phone detects that it is not getting the required current for charging the battery. It’s sort of a protective measure that not only protects the battery but the phone as well. Below are the steps that you need to do to resolve this issue. Move to the next step if the issue still persists.

  • Try cleaning the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol. If the port has some dirt or debris present this could interfere with the charging process.
  • Try using a different charging cord.
  • Use a different wall charger
  • Wipe the cache partion of your phone from the recovery mode. If this issue is caused by some form of corrupt data then this will fix the issue.
  • Try using a new battery on your phone.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

If the above steps fail to resolve the problem then I suggest you have your phone checked at an authorized service center.

S5 Does Not Charge Unless Cable Is Pushed

Problem: Hi! I just got a replacement phone for my broken Samsung galaxy s5 two days ago. This new phone won’t charge unless I hold the cable and push it into the port really hard. I’m pretty sure it’s an issue with the phone itself, not the cable, because I tried charging my old galaxy s5 with the same cable and it charged just fine. Is there any way I can fix this cheap?

Solution: There are two possible factors that can cause this type of issue. The first is a defective charging cord and second a defective phone charging port. Since you already eliminated the possibility of this being a charging cable problem then it’s very likely to be caused by the charging port.

Try cleaning this port first with a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol. This will take out the dirt or debris that could be lodged in the port. If this doesn’t fix the problem then you will have to have the charging port replaced.

You will be able to save a lot if you replace this port on your own. Just buy a charging port ( make sure it is for your specific model) then check on the various tutorial sites online ( you can start by checking the ifixit website) to replace the port.

S5 Not Charging Heats Up

Problem: Hi I’ve been having allot of trouble with my phone it won’t charge at all anymore and it quickly heats up and the charging port seems loose when I put in the charger what can I do to fix this ??

Solution: If the charging port is loose then this is what’s causing the problem. You will need to have this port replaced at an authorized service center. However, if you have experience in working with electronic gadgets then you can replace the port yourself. There are several guides in replacing this port available online that you can refer to.

You should however try to check other factors that could be causing this problem before replacing the port. Below are the things that you need to do first.

  • Clean the phone charging port with a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol.
  • Try using a different charging cable
  • Try using a different wall charger
  • Replace the phone battery with  a new one.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

S5 Turned Off Does Not Turn On

Problem: I bought my phone about 2 months ago since its the s5 and its supposedly waterproof I tried cleaning the screen with water, the first time I did this it was fine but now after I did it it turned off and won’t start back on. it doesn’t vibrate or makes any sound and the LDI is white please help me!

Solution: This phone has a certain degree of water resistance which gives it ample protection from water. However, it is not totally waterproof. I’m guessing the LDI sticker that you checked is located on the battery and the battery compartment. If it is white then it is a good sign. There is however another sticker located inside the device as well. This can be viewed at the service center since it requires opening the device.

You will need to assume first that the device is water damaged. Place the phone in a bag of rice for at least 48 hours to get rid of the moisture inside the device. Try to turn on the phone. If it doesn’t turn on then charge it for at least 20 minutes then turn it on again.

If the issue still remains then do the following steps listed below.

  • Take out the battery then press and hold the power button for at least a minute. Reinsert the battery then turn on the phone.
  • Try using a different battery
  • Check if you are able to start the phone in recovery mode. If you are able to access this mode then do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data so make sure to have a backup copy.

If after following the steps listed above the problem remains then you need to have your phone checked at an authorized service center.

S5 Fully Charged Does Not Turn On

Problem: I have turned the phone off as it was getting warm now it wont turn back on. I have the charging battery with bubbles going into it but the power button will not turn the phone on. It is fully charged

Solution: Try taking out the phone battery then press and hold the power button for at least a minute. This will discharge the phone circuit and clear out its RAM. Reinsert the battery then check if the phone will now turn on.

If it doesn’t turn on then try using a different battery.

You should also check if the phone is able to start in recovery mode. If you are able to access this mode then I suggest you wipe the cache partition of the phone first. If this step fails then proceed with a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data so make sure to have a backup copy first.

If the above steps fail to resolve the problem then I suggest you have your phone checked at an authorized service center.
