The #Samsung #Galaxy #S8 is the latest flagship phone of the South Korean giant that has several innovative features not found on their previous flagship devices. The phone is easily distinguishable by its large 5.8 inch Super AMOLED display with its fingerprint sensor located at the back. Although this device performs very well there are instances when certain issues can occur which we will be addressing today. In this latest installment of our troubleshooting series we will tackle the Galaxy S8 randomly turns off issue and other related problems.

S8 Randomly Turns Off

Problem: This has happened to me twice I have the Samsung  S8, I plug the phone in before I go to bed for the night, and I have an alarm set to go off so I can wake up in the morning.  But needless to say the alarm doesn’t go off because the phone has bricked itself.  You take the phone off of power and the screen doesn’t come on and nothing happens just the green charge light stays on in the upper right corner.  I have to use the power and volume down button to get the phone working again, has anyone had this issue?

Solution: What you will want to do in this case is to first check if the problem is caused by an app you downloaded. To do this just start the phone in Safe Mode then check if the issue occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then it could be caused by an app you installed. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

In case the issue occurs in Safe Mode then proceed with the following steps.

  • Wipe the cache partition of the phone from the recovery mode.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

If the issue still persists then you will need to have this checked at a service center as this could already be caused by a faulty internal component.

S8 Will Not Charge

Problem: Hello there, I have brought Samsung S8 few weeks ago.  I have a frequent charging problem.  My phone would not charge with charger and cable that was provided in the box every time I charge it; however, it charges with the small extension provided.  It is hard to take it every time I go out.  I think it is a faulty charger, can you guys replace it?  FYI, I am not sure of Android Version.  Thanks!

Solution: If the problem is caused by a faulty charging cord and since the phone is only a few weeks old then you can have this replaced since this is usually covered by the warranty.
