S5 Will Not Switch On After Charging

Problem: I downloaded a Samsung update overnight on the 7/2/17 with the charger plugged in but in the morning the phone was completely dead and will not switch back on or recognise the charger being re-inserted.

Solution: For this particular issue you should try taking out the battery  and the microSD card ( if one is installed) then press and hold the power button for at least a minute. This will discharge the phone circuit and clear out its RAM. Once this is done reinsert just the battery but don’t turn on the phone yet. What you need to do is to clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air making sure that any dirt or debris stuck in the port gets removed. Try connecting the phone to a charger and let it charge for at least 20 minutes. If you don’t get any charging indicator then check if the phone will charge from a computer USB port. If this doesn’t work try turning on your phone in recovery mode. In the event that the phone does turn on in recovery mode then I recommend that you do a factory reset. Take note that this will erase your phone data.

Should the above steps fail to fix the problem then you should try getting a new battery. This allows you to check if the battery is causing this problem. If the phone still doesn’t work then I recommend that you bring this to a service center and have it checked.

S5 Goes To Home Screen When Charger Is Plugged Or Unplugged.

Problem: Hi. I have a Samsung Galaxy s5. I use it A LOT, even while it’s charging. The problem is that if I plug or unplug it while I’m using it, it will closes out & goes to the home screen. I don’t see ANY charging settings (except for the LED). I’ve already tried taking the battery out AND have done a factory reset as well.

Solution: Since you have already performed a factory reset then it’s safe to assume that the problem isn’t caused by a glitch in the phone software. One possible factor that can cause this problem is that the plugging and unplugging of the charges causes some form of static electricity which in turn leads to this issue. Try using a different charger and charging cord then check if the issue still occurs. If it does then you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

S5 Use Original Charger To Charge Faster Error

Problem: I plug my phone in with the charger that came on the package but when i plug it in it says “the phone might take longer to charge use the charger that came with it to charge faster” but i am using the same cord

Solution: Sometimes even when you use the orignal charger that came with your phone you will still be getting this error message. Listed below are some of the troubleshooting steps that you should perform to fix this issue.

  • Try cleaning the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in this port gets removed.
  • Try using a different charging cord. The cord that you are currently using might already be defective which is why this issue is happening.
  • Try using a different wall charger.
  • Try replacing your battery with a new one.
  • 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.

S5 Will Not Charge

Problem: So my samsung s5 will not charge. The charge light flickers on and off and has been plugged in all night with only 27 percent being charged.  I notice yesterday that a per saving notice/app thing came up and I pressed ok and did nothing else.  Could that have anything to do with it?  Everything I have read stated to do a factory reset, but what will I loose if I do that?  Any suggestions?

Solution: A factory reset should be your last option as this will erase everything in your phone. Take note that if you proceed with this step you will need to backup your phone data first.

Listed below are the steps that you need to perform to fix this problem.

  • Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air making sure to remove any dirt or debris stuck in it.
  • Connect your phone to its charger. Try moving the charging cord connector on the phone side. Does the charging connect and disconnect? If it does then there’s a loose connection somewhere. Try using a different charging cord and of this fails try using a different wall charger. If the issue remains then your phone might have a damaged charging port. You will have to bring the phone to a service center if this is the case. Proceed to the next step if the charging does not disconnect and connect repeatedly.
  • Try replacing the phone battery.
  • 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.

S5 Only Recognizes Original Charging Cord And Charger

Problem: Hi, I am using a Galaxy S5 and suddenly it will only recognize the Samsung charger cord and power block. It doesn’t recognize my portable power pack or any other cables, which is an issue as I use the device a lot. I haven’t dropped it recently and have tried cleaning out the port with compressed air. Thanks for your assistance I look forward to hearing from you.

Solution: Try using the original charging cord of your phone with the portable power pack. Does the issue still occur? If it does then try to connect a different power pack to your phone to check if the issue is caused by your power pack. If your phone does not recognize the power pack at all then there must be a problem with the slow charging pin of your charging port. To verify this further check if your phone can charge from your computer USB port. If it can’t then you will need to bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

S5 Does Not Turn On No Response To Charging

Problem: Phone battery was running low so I plugged in an external charger. Straight away the phone turned off, wont turn back on. Still wont turn on with spare battery either. Plugged it into the wall charger when I got home and same story. It’s completely unresponsive, and I’ve only had this phone for 3 weeks

Solution: It looks like some internal component of the phone got damaged, possibly the power IC or the battery might be defective. You will need to have this checked at a service center.

S5 Charges Only From Computer

Problem: Hey Droidguy,  I have been through all your suggestions on the web page.  My phone has a different issue, not listed. The phone will only charge with the original cable that it came with, but only from my computer.  Won’t charge from the wall plug in or other cables or car cable or other wall units with original cable, only from the computer.  Thoughts? remedies? This is the 4th S5 I have had, all had charging issues at one point or another. Oh the battery in it is a Samsung and is fairly new.

Solution: Have you tried cleaning the charging port of your phone making sure that any dirt or debris is removed? If you have already performed this then the problem could be caused by a damaged charging port pin that’s responsible for the fast charging function of the phone. You need to have this checked at a service center.
