S6 Screen Does Not Turn On

Problem: Went to bed at 1:00am with phone at 50%. Alarm went off at 6:30am (unknown battery life). Did not use phone between 6:30am and 7:30am. 7:30am phone had flashing blue light but screen would not turn on so I plugged in phone to charge. Phone no change and is now 4:17pm. Tried rebooting, no change.

Solution: Try accessing the recovery mode of your phone. If you are able to access this mode then there are two things that you will want to do. First, try wiping the cache partition of your phone. If the problem is caused by some form of corrupt temporary data then this troubleshooting step will fix the problem since it deletes any temporary data stored in your phone. Restart your phone then check if the issue is resolved. If the first troubleshooting step fails then you need to go back to recovery mode then do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data so make sure to have a backup copy of your phone data before proceeding.

In case the phone does not start in recovery mode or if the reset fails to fix the issue then you should check if the problem is power related. One thing you should take a look at is if the phone was indeed charging when you tried to charge it. Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol. Charge the phone for at least 20 minutes using a different USB cord and wall charger. Try to turn on the phone.

If the display still does not work then I suggest you have your phone checked at an authorized service center.

S6 Screen Is Blank After Phone Dropped

Problem: Dropped not from a great night just of the sofa arm and the screen is blank but blue light permanently on. Will it just be the screen or digitiser I don’t want to roped off in a shop as it’s blatantly obvious I have no clue about phones or anything technical lol

Solution: Before ruling this as a hardware related problem you should check first if the problem is caused by a glitch in the phone software. This saves you a trip to the service center. What you will want to do first in this case is to simulate a battery pull. To do this just press and old on the power button and volume down button for at least 7 seconds. Your phone should restart after this.

In case the issue remains you should then try to start the phone in recovery mode. This is an environment separate from the main operating system of the phone and is useful to check if the phone software is causing the problem. If you are able to access this mode then proceed with wiping the cache partition of your phone. Restart the phone and check if the issue disappears. If it doesn’t then go back to recovery mode and do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete the data stored in your device so make sure to have a backup copy before doing this step.

If the above troubleshooting steps fail then this problem is most likely caused by a damaged display. I would suggest that you bring your phone to an authorized service center.

S6 Switches Brightness Levels When Set To Max

Problem: When I put my screen brightness to max, the screens starts to constantly switch brightness levels on its on. It doesn’t do this on other brightness levels. My auto brightness is off and I have tried resetting my phone. This started happening after the latest update.

Solution: Try checking first if the problem is caused by an app installed in your phone by starting the device in Safe Mode. In this mode only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run while apps you downloaded are disabled. If the issues does not occur in this mode then it could be caused by an app. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

If the issue occurs in Safe Mode then proceed with backing up your phone data. Once your data has been backed up start the phone in recovery mode then wipe its cache partition. Restart your phone then check if the issue still occurs. If it does then proceed with a factory reset from the recovery mode.

If the above troubleshooting steps fail to resolve the problem then this might be caused by the update, in which case you should wait for a newer update that could come with a fix for this issue.

S6 Recent Apps Does Not Support Screen View

Problem: I keep getting messages stating “recent apps does not support screen view.’ it going crazy.  Everytime I pull up and app, the systems brings up all apps and the screen keeps blinking. I also get this split screen view. This is starting to drive me a little crazy.

Solution: Try checking first if an app you downloaded is causing this problem by starting your phone in Safe Mode. In this mode only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run. If the issue does not occur in this mode then it is most likely caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

In case the issue occurs even in Safe Mode then I suggest you backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

S6 Blinking Bar On Screen

Problem: The screen is blinking just a transversal bar on top and transversal bar on button too On the middies black. My phone is new about 2 month.

Solution: It looks like the problem could be caused by a damaged display. Try to start your phone in recovery mode. If you are able to access this mode then the issue could be software related. In this mode you will need to do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data so make sure to have a backup copy first. If you are unable to access the recovery mode then I suggest you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
