S6 Edge Only Charges From Laptop

Problem: Hi, I have a really weird issue. On my samsung s6 edge, i have been charging my phone from my laptop for the last day or so because my phone has not been charging from the plug. It charges from my laptop but not from any plug or any other usb ports when before it would use to always work. Can you please answer me as soon as possible on why my cellphone is only charging from my laptop and not from any other place?

Solution: There’s a possibility that one of the pins of your phone’s charging port ( the one responsible for fast charging) has been damaged. You should however verify if this is the case by doing the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging port of your phone. Make sure to remove any dirt or debris that could be present in the port as this can cause this type of problem. Check if the phone charges using a wall charger.
  • Try using a different charging cord when charging your phone.
  • Try using a different wall charger.

If the issue persists even after performing the steps listed above then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

Problem: I recently updated my phone yesterday. My phone is not charging. I applied all the resets and cleared my cache. Unfortunately , my phone still will not charge. I have used multiple wires and plugs.

Solution: Try cleaning the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air then charge your phone by following the steps listed below.

  • Try using a different charging cord and wall charger
  • Try charging your phone with the USB port of your computer. If it charges this way then your phone might have a damaged charging port.

If the above steps fail to fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

S6 Edge Turns Off When SIM Card Is Inserted

Problem: Hi i have got a samsung galaxy s6 edge. But  it’s causing problems. while the sim is inside the phone it gets turned off. but when there is no sim it works fine. and when sim is on and on charge then it works. another trouble when i try to connect internet or go to camera it gets turned off as well. i have done hard reset and wiped cache portion as well. please help me.

Solution: These are two separate issues which we will tackle separately. For the first issue regarding the phone turning off with a SIM installed you should try using another SIM card on your phone. This is to check if your current SIM is causing a short circuit. If the issue persists even with a new SIM then it’s either the battery is weak or there’s a shorted circuit somewhere. For this issue I would recommend that you bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

For the second issue regarding the phone turning off when using certain apps this might be caused by a faulty battery. Since this phone has a non-user removable battery you will have to bring this to a service center and have it checked.

S6 Edge Not Fast Charging

Problem: my s6 edge is not charging fast. I noticed that when i charge the fast charging option is disabled. i tried checking the cables, tried other chargers and even uninstalled some apps but to no avail. It takes 5 hrs to complete the charging. Thanks in advance.

Solution: Here’s what you need to do for this particular issue. First, clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air making sure that any dirt or debris stuck in the port is removed.

Next, check the fast charging setting of your phone and make sure that it is activated. If you can’t turn it on then you will need to perform a factory reset. This allows you to check if a glitch in the phone software is preventing this feature from being used. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

Try using different charging cords and wall chargers when charging the phone.

If the issue persists then this could be caused by a faulty battery. I recommend that you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

S6 Edge Won’t Switch On

Problem: Hi, my s6 edge just wont switch on and it’s not showing any charge or lights to show that its charging, it heats up whilst charging even on my wireless charger can you please help me rectify the problem please.

Solution: If your phone heats up when charging and it doesn’t charge using a wired or wireless charger then this could already be a hardware related issue. The battery might already be faulty, there could be a short circuit inside your phone, or there might be an internal component that’s failing to work. These are just some of the possible factors that can cause this issue. The best way to proceed right now is to bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

S6 Edge Not turning On Only Has Blue Blinking Light

Problem: Suddenly my samsung galaxy S6 edge won’t turn on, not charging, only blue light blinking. i tried all  the troubleshooting  that you gave like holding and pressing  volume up key,power button ,home key together. but it is not working .now i gave my phone to repair also they cannot fix the problem. please help me to solve the problem.i am just worried about it.   Best Regards

Related Problem: All of a sudden yesterday my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was not working. I did not drop it and i am pretty sure it did not run out of battery. There is a blue flashing light every few seconds but nothing else to. I charged it all night to see if anything changed but nothing happened.

Solution: Try doing a simulated battery pull by pressing and holding down both the power and volume down button for at least 10 seconds. If the phone doesn’t restart then try accessing the recovery mode. If you can access this mode then I suggest that you do a factory reset. Take note that your phone data will be erased in the process.

If the above steps fail to fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

  1. Hi,
    My Samsung 6 edge plus will not charge. The phone is only over a year old.
    Just randomly when I went to charge it i realized my phone was not recognizing that the charger was plugged in and started draining the battery quicker. It eventually died so i left it on charge over night turned off and when i turned it on in the morning it had fully charged the phone but was draining battery very quick and I had to use it on ultra power saving mode for it to last the whole day.
    Now it is no longer charging turned off…Help! I have not backed up my phone and am worried I will lose all my photos?
