S7 Edge Freezes Restarts After Nougat Update

Problem: Since updating to Nougat my phone has been restarting overnight by itself. Last night it froze halfway through – I woke up at 7 with the phone frozen to 03:12. i had to simulate a battery pull this morning to reset it. It’s been the only issue i’ve had with the phone since getting it in December and only since updating to the new Android.  It’s not a massive issue but not having alarms you can trust each day is getting Frustrating.

Solution: Do you have a microSD card installed in your phone? If this card has corrupt sectors then it can cause your phone to freeze or restart. Ty taking out the card then check if the issue still occurs. If your phone does not have a microSD card or if the issue still occurs even after removing the card then this problem is most likely caused by some form of old software data that has not been completely removed during the update. You will need to backup your phone data then do a factory reset to fix this problem.

S7 Edge Not Turning On Screen Is Yellowish Green

Problem: my SM-G935FD running nougat 7.0 has been great for the past months that i have had it. but today while i was playing boom beach with HSPDA+ on and using pop chat heads of Facebook messenger. then suddenly the top of the screen turns yellow/green and the phone freezes. so i try and reset it but it wont turn back on. my phone was still hot during this. after i got back home i connected it to the charger but still no led notification that it is charging. i try turning it on a few times. then i tried booting to recovery or safe mode. alas it vibrates but as soon as the screen turns on it starts flickering from the top then the whole screen turns yellowish green. i can’t see anything on the screen cause it’s fully covered with the yellowish green color. so i have at the moment kept the device off and charging it till its full. my phone hasn’t been dropped or damaged in any way, i installed nougat firmware that was assigned to another country but i don’t think that could be the cause of the problem as i have seen others doing it. how do i fix this? please help.

Solution: The first thing that you need to do in this particular case is to make sure that the battery of your phone has sufficient charge. In order to do this try to follow the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in this port is removed.
  • Simulate a battery pull by pressing and holding the power and volume down button for a least 10 seconds.
  • Charge your phone for at least 20 minutes using a different charging cord and wall charger. You should also check if the phone charges from a computer USB port.
  • If you have a wireless charger then try charging your phone wirelessly.

In case your phone turns on but it freezes or the screen has a weird color then I suggest you start your phone in recovery mode then do a factory reset. Take note that this reset will erase your phone data.

If the reset fails to fix the problem then you should consider flashing the original stock firmware file of your phone.

Should the above steps fail to work then I suggest that you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
