S6 Edge Can’t Switch Off Ultra Power Saving Mode
Problem: Dear Team, I am facing issue with a Ultra Power savings mode of my Samsung S6 phone. Few days back my phone battery was draining abruptly in order to save the battery life I switched on the ultra power savings mode. After a day or two I could not see the notification panel to switch off my UPSM it just disappeared. I can not operate any app in my phone all the apps are now hidden my phone has become redundant as I have only following options in Setting – Volume, Brightness, Airplane Mode, Wifi and Bluetooth. How do I got back to the normal applications and get back from Ultra Power Savings Mode. Pls guide
Solution: When you can’t find the settings to get out of the ultra power saving mode then this could be caused by an issue with the launcher. To fix this perform the steps listed below.
- On the home screen, click the apps icon. This is the icon that shows all your phone applications
- Search for the Google app then hold down on this app (or your current home screen app) as if you were going to place the icon on the home screen. Do not place the application on the home screen instead drag it to the section that says “app info”. The application info screen opens.
- Click on “MORE” on the top right section of the screen and choose “Uninstall updates”. A pop up window shows up to confirm. Click on “UNINSTALL”
- Go to the application info screen, click on “FORCE STOP”. Confirm the pop up window.
- Go to the application info window screen, click the “Storage” bar that reads how many “MB of internal storage used”. Click ” CLEAR CACHE” and confirm.
- Go to the application info window click “Set as default” and select “CLEAR DEFAULTS” and confirm. (this may be disabled by now).
- Restart the phone
- Slide down the notification bar, and the option to “Turn off U. Power Safe” should be available.
S6 Edge Won’t Turn On
Problem: I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and it won’t turn on. It was working fine last night but the battery ran out completely and I couldn’t charge it till about an hour after. I charged it the whole night and for most of this morning (it usually only takes about 4-5 hours to completely charge up) but it wouldn’t charge or turn on. However, it did charge till about 30% in the afternoon but it kept restarting every five minutes. Now, it suddenly shut off completely again and I need it for work tomorrow. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Related Problem: PHONE won’t turn on. Red LED is lit at top left of the phone. Phone is charged. Died while being charged. I do not know the android version I have but I picked one at random so I could send this question to you. what None of your suggestions worked. Any ideas
Solution: The first thing that you need to do in this particular case is to make sure that the phone battery has sufficient charge.Try to charge the phone for at least 20 minutes by performing the troubleshooting steps listed below.
- Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure to remove any dirt or debris stuck in this port.
- Do a simulated battery pull by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds.
- Charge the phone using a different charging cord and wall charger.
Once the phone battery has some charge try turning it on. If it doesn’t turn on try to check if it does with the charger connected to it ( if your phone turns on this way then you might need to have the battery replaced. You should have this checked at a service center).
You should also check if the phone turns on in recovery mode. If it does then you will need to perform a factory reset in this mode as the problem could be caused by a glitch in the phone software.
If the above steps don’t fix the problem then you need to have your phone checked at a service center.
S6 Edge Got Wet Now Only Turns On With Charger Connected
Problem: My phone was dropped in water, did the bag of rice for 3 days, phone will now only work on charger but not without being plugged in…..
Solution: There might be some internal component that got water damaged and is causing the problem. In this case the likely culprit is a damaged power IC. You will need to bring the phone to its service center and have it checked.
S6 Edge Fast Wireless Charging
Problem: I have a samsung s6 edge 64gb. My question is, can i use a fast charging plug and cable on a fast charge wireless pad to charge my phone faster. Does s6 edge support fast charging wirelessly. If not. Can i download firmware to make this function work
Solution: If you use the Adaptive Fast Charging charger of Samsung as well as its wireless charging pad then you will be able to fast charge the phone. JUst make sure that the fast wireless charging settings is turned on. You can turn this on from Settings – Accessory, and then tap the Fast wireless charging switch.
S6 Edge Will Not Charge
Problem: My phone will not charge. It has 0% battery and turns off immediately after turning it on. When I plug in any charger, the charging symbol appears but without the green light that surrounds the lightening bolt that flashes, to show that the phone is charging. I have blown into the charging port and tried to reset my phone by holding down the power button and the volume button. Nothing changed. Please help!!!
Related Problem: I reset my s6 edge (factory reset) and i changed my charger but it is still not charging, when i turn it off and put it on charge it gives the charging sign but with no percentage of battery and still not charging
Solution: Since you already tried cleaning the charging port of your phone then you should proceed with using a different charging cord and wall charger to charge your device. If the issue remains then do the following steps listed below.
- Try charging your phone from a computer USB port. If your phone charges this way then one of the pins of the charging port of the phone might be damaged. Have this checked at a service center.
- Try charging the phone wirelessly. If the phone charges this way then the charging port might be defective. Have this checked at a service center.
If the phone does not charge at all by following the steps listed above then it’s either the battery or the charging IC that has gone bad. If this is the case then I recommend that you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
S6 Edge Turns Off When Not Connected To Charger
Problem: My phone turns off when not connected to charger and it usually happens while using snap chat so I uninstalled it from my phone! I read a recent post in ur website about a similar issue which said to back up and do factory resetting….but I don’t know how to backup documents(I have few ppt stored in my device which are really important) and could u tell me how to get back all the apps after factory resetting …
Solution: you should try to use Smart Switch to backup your phone data. This is a Samsung software that you can download to your computer which helps in not only updating your phone but backing up its contents. Once the data has been backed up you can now proceed with a factory reset.
If after the reset the problem still remains then we might be looking at a hardware related issue. If this is the case then you need to bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
