How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Intermittently Charging

Problem: I’ve had a Galaxy Note 8 for just less than a year, but it’s been doing this for as long as I can remember. Every time I plug it in to charge it works, but when it gets to 100% it keeps restarting charging several times as if I kept on re-plugging the charger into the wall outlet. I know I should unplug it when it gets to 100%, but I’m usually asleep and the screen constantly flashing wakes me up in the middle of the night. Can you help me solve this issue?

Solution: There are several troubleshooting steps that you can do for this particular problem which we have listed below.

Clean the charging port of the phone

Sometimes dirt or debris stuck in the charging port can cause charging issues. To verify if this is what’s causing the problem you should try cleaning the port first using a can of compressed air. Make sure to remove any dirt or debris stuck in this port.

Try using a different USB charging cord

The USB charging cord gets damaged easily especially if it is constantly bent or coiled. Try using a different charging cord then check if the issue still occurs.

Try using a different wall charger

There are instances when the wall charger becomes faulty. When this happens you will most likely experience charging related issues with the phone. To check if this is what’s happening right now try using a different wall charger.

Start the phone in Safe Mode

There are instances when a downloaded app can cause this problem. To check if this is the case you will need to start the phone in Safe Mode as only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run in this mode.

  • Turn the phone off.
  • Press and hold the Power key past the model name screen.
  • When “SAMSUNG” appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  • Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.
  • Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting.
  • Safe mode will display in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Release the Volume down key when you see Safe Mode.

If the problem does not occur in this mode then you will have to uninstall the app that is causing the problem.

Backup your phone data then do a factory reset

Once you have made a backup copy of your phone data I suggest that you do the factory reset from the recovery mode. This will revert your phone back to its original factory condition.

  • Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
  • When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
  • Press the Volume down key several times to highlight “wipe data / factory reset.
  • Press Power button to select.
  • Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes — delete all user data’ is highlighted.
  • Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
  • When the master reset is complete, “Reboot system now” is highlighted.
  • Press the Power key to restart the device.

Once the reset is complete do not install any apps in your phone. Try to check first if the issue still occurs.

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then you should bring the phone to a service center and have it checked as this is most likely caused by a faulty hardware component already.
