Note 4 Switches Off When Disconnected From Charger
Problem: My phone switches off when I disconnect from charger, but the battery shows it is fully charged. When I reconnect immediately the phone to the battery working fine without any problem. i have checked the battery voltage it okay. if i remove the charger it’s going off after 2 min. its start booting own not starting the App. Kindly advise.
Solution: In issues like this you need to try using a new battery on your phone as the battery that you are using right now could be faulty. If the issue still occurs even with a new battery then you should try doing a factory reset. Take note that this will erase your phone data so make sure to create a backup first.
Note 4 Stuck In Boot Logo
Problem: I am trying to turn my phone on. when I press the power button its shows samsung note 4 on screen and after that as it suppose to show home screen it do not show that. its just keep showing samsung note 4 nothing beside that.. can you please help me out what could be the problem. battery is not an issue.
Solution: This issue is usually referred to as stuck in boot logo since the phone does not go past the Samsung logo. To resolve this issue follow the troubleshooting steps listed below.
- Remove the battery and microSD card ( if your phone has one). Press and hold the power button for at least a minute. This will discharge your phone circuit and clear out its RAM. Reinsert just the battery then turn on the phone.
- Connect the phone to its charger then turn on the phone. If the phone boots normally then you should consider replacing the phone battery as it might not be supplying the correct power to the phone which then causes this issue.
- Start the phone in recovery mode. If you are able to access this mode then try wiping the cache partition of your device. Restart the phone.
- Start the phone in recovery mode. Do a factory reset. Take note that this will delete your phone data.
If the above steps fail then you should consider flashing your phone with its stock software as the problem could be caused by a corrupt phone software. Instructions on how to flash your phone can be found at several of the popular Android forums online.
Note 4 Shuts Off When Battery Is 40%
Problem: My phone shuts down when it hits 40% or anything lower. This happened with my old battery, j got a new one 3 month ago and the same things happened after a month. I tried training the battery but the phone doesn’t want to operate or turn on even under that percentage I even took the battery out when it dropped a few times I noticed from 43% to 3% and then I took out the battery….waited then put it back in and it showed 43% like it originally was, can it be the phone? I also did a full phone wipe and still only goes as far as 40%, in tired of buying new battery that end up with the same and all of them are original Samsung batteries, I’m forced to go around with a battery bank and always scared of doing anything important when nearing the percentage, the phone only last 45mins then it needs charger. Also it only charges to 85%, it doesn’t want to go any higher. Which is why it only lasts that long.
Solution: It’s possible that the issue is caused by the phone hardware. There might be a shorted circuit in the phone. I suggest you have this checked at a service center to pinpoint the exact cause of this issue.
Note 4 Does Not Fully Charge
Problem: MM push caused battery to no longer fully charge, originally to about 75% to 80%, now only to about 65 or 67 %. Also discharges quickly. When view the battery settings information, Android Operating system using a large/vast majority (25 to 50%) of the battery consumption
- Replaced battery with new battery, problem still occurs
- Optimized battery settings
- Have tested with two different laptops, two different USB cords
- Had software reflashed by Samsung Representative
- Had device reset to factory delivered by Samsung representative
After all of these variables were taken into account, and “repair” activities performed, phone still only gets to about 65% charge ON SLOW charge only. NO fast charge is used. Have found that if remove battery for 20-30 minutes from the phone, THEN slow charge, it WILL charge to 100% but only that first time. Today I removed the battery AND SIM card. The battery had been “fully charged” at 67%. After 30 minutes, put the battery in. The battery life was now miraculously 91%. At this point, unless someone can solve this issue for me, I am going to purchase an iPhone, and will NEVER go back to an Android Operating System for any reason. That the development team does NOT have minimum, mandated app standards, that this type of outcome happens REPEATEDLY after software pushes, is simply unbelievable in this day and age.
Solution: It looks like this issue might already be caused by a faulty phone component. It’s either there’s a problem with the charging port or the charging circuit of the phone. I recommend you have this checked at a service center.
Note 4 Battery Drains Very Fast
Problem: I was given this phone by a friend because he began having the issues with it that I’m having. The phone will drain battery very fast, sometimes only lasting about 5 or 6 hours. Along with that, the phone will just shut off at around 40 percent. Sometimes it’ll shut off at 60 percent. But sometimes it will make it down all the way to 20 percent before dying. When I plug the phone in after its died early, it always reads 0 percent. Although I just plugged it in about a minute ago, and it already says 39 percent. It was just at 0 percent. So would it just be a problem with the communication between my battery and the phone? Like it’s reading me the wrong percent and is just dying very quickly? Thanks!
Solution: The problem could be caused by a faulty battery. Try getting a new battery first and see if this fixes the problem. If it doesn’t then I suggest you backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete do not install anything in your phone yet. Try checking first if the issue still occurs. If it does then I recommend that you have your phone checked at a service center as this might be caused by a hardware issue already.
Note 4 Not Turning On
Problem: it started restarting at first then it just restarted all the time again and again. now it does not turn on at all even with the charger. any thoughts to what might be the issue?
Solution: Try checking if your phone has a faulty battery by getting a new one. If the phone still does not turn on the follow the steps listed below.
- Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air or by blowing into it. Your aim is to take out any dirt or debris that could be present in the port.
- Charge the phone using a different charging cord and wall charger.
If the phone still does not turn on then you should have this checked at a service center.
