Note 4 Battery Drains Fast
Problem: Hi droid team, My note 4 has been giving many issues for a while, i don’t know if it’s a single problem or a combination of problems. However, here are the issues Battery drain : there’s something peculiar about this….i could charge up my battery to say 100 percent, removing the charger from my battery and turning on data on my phone….it begins a steep battery drain that starts with the “no signal sign” with very brief resumption of “signal” as battery percentage slides towards Zero. whilst heating up. I have gotten two new batteries in recent months, thinking it was a problem with the battery. but the problem has persisted despite.
Solution: Since you have already tried replacing the battery which doesn’t appear to fix the problem then the next thing you should do is to check if the phone software is causing this issue. For this problem you should backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete don’t install anything in your phone yet. If you have a microSD card installed then try removing it too. Check if the battery drain problem still occurs. If it does then I recommend that you have your phone checked at a service center.
Note 4 Not Turning On After Replacing Battery
Problem: My note 4 was draining battery so I got replacement battery. After I installed the battery phone was tested and functioning fine. I put phone in a drawer and when I took it out it was on the screen that said not to turn off downloading target. Thus Android screen remained until I finally removed the battery. Now the phone won’t start up. I did try taking out the battery replacing it and holding down the the reconnected keys at once. I got a vibration and a different screen that stayed on but disappeared when I let go of the power button. Now I can’t get anything, no charge no turn on, nothing. Please advise. Thanking you in advance fit ask of the wonderful advice you have given in the past and for the future.
Solution: For this particular issue you should first make sure that the battery is charged and not drained. Clean the charging port of your phone first using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in the port is removed as this will interfere with the charging process. Next, charge your phone for at least 20 minutes using a different charging cord and wall charger. Turn on your phone.
If the phone still does not turn on try to use the old battery and see if the phone turns on.
If your phone remains unresponsive then I suggest you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
Note 4 Turns Off With Battery Power Remaining
Problem: My Note 4 will turn off by itself when the battery is between 30% and 60%. After I turn on again, battery is 0% and it has to be recharged. I have already reset the device and replaced the battery. Device is running latest updates for Brazil (Android 6.0.1).
Solution: When you have already performed a factory reset and replaced the phone battery but still the issue remains then it’s possible that this is caused by a faulty internal component of the phone possibly the power IC. For this issue I recommend that you bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Related Problem: hello i have a galaxy note 4 that i have had for a little more than a yr. it did an update not to long ago and then it started shutting off when the battery would be full. it can be like on 45% or 65% and it shuts off to where i have to put the phone on the charger just so that it can turn back on. if you know what the problem is please let me know because i have a son in school and have to have a working phone.
Solution: Since you have already tried using a new battery which doesn’t fix the problem the next step is to troubleshoot the phone software. Do the following steps listed below. Check if the problem still occurs after performing a step then move to the next one if the issue still occurs.
- Start the phone in Safe Mode. If the issue doesn’t occur in this mode then it is most likely caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
- Wipe the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode.
- Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
If the above steps fail to fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
Note 4 Shuts Off Doesn’t Start Unless Battery Is Removed
Problem: my note 4 (SM-910F) suddenly shut down and starts when i plug out the battery and then plug it in… i recently downloaded the updates and tried to install automatically but a message popped up saying that u should try manually using kies… but a friend of mine advised me to use odin 3.12… is it software disturbance or something else ??? plz help me as soon as possible…
Solution: There are two things that you need to check for this particular issue. First, you need to use a new battery on your phone. This is to verify if the current battery is causing the problem. If the issue still remains then I suggest that you backup your phone data then do a factory reset. One the reset is complete try checking if the issue still occurs. If it does then you can try to update your phone software. I suggest you use Kies first as upgrading the phone software using this software is easy. If you are unable to update the phone software using Kies then you will have to manually flash the update using Odin. Instructions on how to do this can be found at several of the popular Android forums online.
If the above steps fail to fix the problem then this could be caused by a faulty internal component. I recommend that you bring your phone to a service center if this is the case.
