How To Fix The Samsung Galaxy S9+ Wi-Fi Switch Does Not Turn On

Problem: Dear Team,I haven’t been able to turn on the WiFi function on my S9+ . When I do try to turn them on, the icon shows its in the process of being turned on, but that’s it it never get on. This has been going on for about a week now, I have talk with Samsung Customer care service and they advised to do the factory Reset and i have done the same but still i am getting same error. When i check on net this is happening with lots of other phone users.  Could you please help in this issue.

Solution: The first thing  that you will need to do in this case is to restart the phone then make sure to turn on the Wi-Fi switch.

  • From the Home screen, swipe up or down from the center of the display to access the apps screen.
  • Navigate to Settings then Connections then Wi-Fi.
  • Tap the Wi-Fi switch making sure that it is in the ON position.

In case the Wi-Fi switch is already on but then the issue still persists then try checking if it occurs in Safe Mode. To start the phone in Safe Mode just follow the steps listed below.

  • Press and hold the Power button until the Power off prompt appears then release.
  • Touch and hold Power off until the Safe mode prompt appears then release.
  • To confirm, tap Safe mode.

If you are able to turn on the Wi-Fi switch in this mode then the problem could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

If the problem still occurs even in Safe Mode then you should try to do a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then this is most likely caused  by a faulty Wi-Fi chip already. You can have this checked and repaired at a service center.
