S5 Charging Overnight Not Turning On
Problem: I have a Galaxy S5. Recently when I am charging overnight (which i have done with the phone for the 2 years i have had it) i wake up to the phone’s screen totally black and no combination of button pressing will wake it. Also in this state the blue LED is constantly lit and also won’t go out. The only way to fix it is to remove the battery and replace then turn back on. If I remove the charger once it reaches 100% this does not happen but if i leave it overnight that’s when it happens. When i remove the battery and replace, i have full 100% charge that lasts as long as it always has. Hope you can help me. Thanks
Solution: The best thing that you can do in this case is to check if the problem is software related. Follow the troubleshooting steps listed below to fix this issue. Move to the next step if the issue still occurs.
- Start the troubleshooting by wiping the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode. This deletes the temporary system files which could be causing the issue.
- Check if a third party app installed in your phone is causing this problem by starting your phone in recovery mode. In this mode only the preinstalled apps are allowed to run while apps you downloaded are disabled. If the issue doesn’t occur then it could be caused by an app. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
- Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
- Try using a new battery on your phone.
If the above steps doesn’t fix the problem then you should have your phone checked at a service center.
S5 Stopped Charging
Problem: I’ve done a factory reset. I’ve cleared the cache. I’ve checked the app usage and deleted some apps. My galaxy s5 was working fine and then it all at once stopped charging. I tinkered with it and realized it would charge when powered off or in safe mode. That’s when I began deleting apps. I had already did the factory reset and clear cache. Shortly after deleting apps it went back to charging perfectly! Well, 4 days down the road and it was charging fine all until I plugged it up a bit ago. Now it’s not charging when it’s turned off or in safe mode. It will slow charge for a few minutes at a time but then shows a battery and a triangle with an exclamation point ! I’m not sure what’s going on with it or why it will work fine one minute and not at all the next.
Solution: The triangle with an exclamation point usually means that something is wrong with the phone hardware causing it not to charge. It could be a battery problem, a charging port issue, or a defective charging daughter board.
To troubleshoot this issue try cleaning the charging port first by using a can of compressed air or by blowing into it using a star. What you want to happen is to take out any dirt or debris that could be present in the port and is causing this problem. Once this is done try charging the phone using a different charging cord and wall charger.
One other thing you should check is if the battery is causing this issue. Replace your battery with a new one then check if the problem still occurs.
If the above steps fail to fix the issue then I recommend that you have your phone checked at a service center as the problem could either be due to a defective charging port or daughter board.
S5 Battery Drains Even When Charging
Problem: Okay, so about a couple months ago my phone charger broke and my dad has the same exact phone as me just in a different color. So I asked if i could have his and it’s been working great ever since, but all of a sudden my battery charge is going down extremely fast even when it’s charging, I haven’t had it at 100% in a whole week, I’m lucky if it gets to 25%, I put it on charge last night and it was at 12% and I woke up and it was at 31%, I slept 7 hours and I have tried taking out the battery, and turning it off and back on again. I really don’t know what else to do and the charger I have now is not broken at all. Thanks
Solution: It’s possible that the battery of your phone is causing this issue. When the battery has undergone several charging cycles it degrades over time. This results in the phone draining quickly or the battery taking a long time to charge. Try getting a new battery and check if this fixes the problem.
If you are still experiencing the same issue then follow the troubleshooting steps listed below. Move to the next step should the issue still occur.
- Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air or by blowing into it using a straw. This will take out any dirt or debris present in the port which could be causing the problem.
- Use a different charging cord when charging your phone.
- Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
S5 Charger Not Compatible With Phone
Problem: Hey my husband’s galaxy s5 has been working great until tonight, he went to plug his charger in and it told him that his charger wasn’t compatible with his phone and then after we took the battery out and tried again it said that it would slow charge and that he needed the correct charger. But it’s the charger that came with his phone, plz help. Now it’s not wanting to charge at all
Solution: If you are using the charger that came with the phone then the issue is most likely caused by dirt stuck in the charging port or be a defective charging cord. Try cleaning the phone charging port first with a can of compressed air or by blowing into it using a straw. If this doesn’t work then try using a different charging cord. It’s also good if you try a different wall charger.
If the issue persists then this might be caused by a faulty charging port. Have your phone checked at a service center if this is the case. Make sure to backup your phone data then do a factory reset before bringing your phone for repair. This is to check if the problem is caused by a glitch in the phone software.
S5 Not Turning On After Software Update
Problem: Hello, I have a bit of an issue with my Galaxy S5. Ever since the last android update I cannot turn my phone on at all. None of the steps that have been presented on the website have not achieved the goal of the phone turning on. I just received the handset back in the mail from Samsung and they did not fix it. (somehow a crack formed on the screen, which wasn’t there when I sent them the phone.) The problem with the handset besides the issue of it not turning on, is that it heats up rather fast when plugged in. I know that it is not running at all due to the battery being taken out for extended periods of time, and the battery being drained. Recharging the battery on an external charger has no effect either, the proper voltage is coming out of the battery. What can I do? I’m not really into expensive paperweights. Thank you.
Solution: Your best bet right now is to try using a new battery on your phone. If the phone still does not turn on and you have already performed the troubleshooting steps listed in our website then the problem could already be caused by a faulty hardware. You should have this phone checked at a service center.
