Tried hard reset- No use . I want buying battery (Note 4 ) to be my last option . Please help thank you.
Solution: If a hard reset fails to fix the problem then you might have a battery that’s not performing at its optimal level. I recommend that you get a new battery then check if this fixes the issue.
Note 4 Not Charging
Problem: Phone has new battery after I noticed I was not getting the life out of the previous one (about 4 months). However the new battery is not getting charged either. The Battery Icon appears but no green bubbles from the usb to the battery like it use to do. Initially it was going on and off, but I did the power button trick to ensure it was not stuck and that took care of that. I also did the usb cleaning, no debris left behind. instead of a red charging light, I have a pulsing blue light. I can not get the phone to stay on long enough to do anything software wise. I have done several soft boots to no avail.
Solution: What you will need to do first is to ty a different charger. Use another charging cord and wall charger when charging your phone. If this fails to fix the problem then try doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. If the issue still occurs even after the reset then there might be an issue with the phone charging port. I recommend that you have this checked at a service center.
Note 4 Restarts Frequently
Problem: I’m really hoping that this is not a hardware or device problem but I just recently got this phone and after a couple of hours, it started to act up and restarted very frequently. When I try to put my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 into Safe Mode, all that happens is the Samsung logo keeps rebooting itself . Is there any issue regarding to the phone that could give it a reason to act up like this? It would mean a lot if we can solve the issue as soon as you are available to reply back. Thank you It also stated (one time) that the start up FAILED and that I needed to connect to Verizon Software Repair Assistant. I have yet to try that since I don’t know where to start with that so maybe mentioning that could help bump up the solution?
Solution: Do you have a microSD card installed in your phone? If you have then try removing it as this might be causing the problem.
Try also to check if the problem occurs when the phone is connected to its wall charger. If the issue doesn’t occur then it could be caused by a faulty battery. Try getting a new battery.
Another possible factor that can cause this issue is a glitch in the phone software. If this is the case then I recommend that you start your phone in recovery mode then do a factory reset. Take note that if you have any personal data stored in this phone it will be erased in the process.
If the above steps fail to fix the problem then I recommend that you have this checked at a service center.

Note 4 Not Turning On Not Charging
Problem: Hello there, Yesterday before i go to sleep.. i already charged my samsung note 4..and its 100% full. Then i watch a movie in 40 minutes then after that feel sleepy so i just click on the s voice button once and put it at my table. and not charging.. because left 50% btry i think.. but today when i woke up… i take my phone and it wont turn on and cannot charging. help me please.what should i do..
Solution: Try taking out the battery of your phone and microSD card if one is installed. Press and hold the power button for at least a minute. This will discharge the phone circuit and clear out its RAM. Reinsert just the battery then try turning on your phone. If it still doesn’t turn on then try connecting it to its charger first for at least 20 minutes. Make sure that you are getting a charging indicator on the device. Turn on your phone. If it still doesn’t turn on then try using a new battery. Should this fail to fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
Note 4 Not Charging Unless Phone Is Off
Problem: Won’t charge unless turned off. Also when charging when off it still won’t charge properly. It will be 44 percent then be 8 percent then be dead shortly after.
Solution: If your phone only charges when it is switched off then you should try cleaning the charging port of the phone first using a can of compressed air. Make sure to take out any dirt or debris stuck in this port. Next, try using a different charging cord and wall charger. Once you have eliminated the possibility of the charger causing this problem then the next step is to check the phone.
Try doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. This will allow you to check if a glitch in the phone software is causing the problem.
Try also to use a new battery on your phone.
If the above steps fail to fix the problem then I suggest that you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
