What to do if Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging | Galaxy J6+ charging won’t work

If your Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging and you’re trying to fix it, follow the suggestions below.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #1: Charge for 30 minutes

If your Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging all of a sudden, the first thing that you want to do is to let it charge for some time. A drained Lithium-based battery may not power up the system right after plugging in the charger. Let your device charge for at least 30 minutes. Do not attempt to power on the phone while it’s still charging to avoid interrupting the charging process. If that won’t change anything, do the rest of the suggestions below.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #2: Use another set of charging accessories

One of the common reasons for a lot of charging issues on Samsung Galaxy devices is a bad cable or adapter. If restarting your device did not help, the next good thing to do is to check the charging cable and adapter. Make sure that you check yours to help you save time and effort. To do that, you can try to use another set. If you have a family member with the same device, try to use his or her charging cable and adapter and see if that will jumpstart charging. If you can’t readily find a charging cable or adapter, visit your local Samsung store to try their own accessories.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #3: Perform soft reset

Minor or temporary bugs may develop if a system is left running for a long time. So, try to perform the forced restart to refresh your phone’s memory as well as reload all services. If the cause of the problem is a minor or temporary bug, this might help. To soft reset your device:

  • Press and hold the volume down button and the power key for 10 seconds or until the logo shows up on the screen.

Once your Galaxy J6 Plus has rebooted successfully, continue using it and check for the problem. If the problem is fixed, then it was just to a minor glitch or system issue. If nothing change though, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #4: Check the charging port

A bad charging port can sometimes prevent a device from charging. Try checking the charging port to see if there’s dirt, debris, pocket lint, or obvious sign of damage. What you want to do in this case is to do a visual check only. If there’s obvious hardware damage, you don’t want to handle it yourself. Instead, let a professional check the hardware so you’ll be advised on what to do. It’ll probably come down to repair so make sure to do that if necessary.

If there’s dirt or debris in the port, try to dislodge it using a can of compressed air. Do not stick anything inside to avoid damaging the system.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #5: Check for water damage

If you recently exposed your Galaxy J6 Plus  to water, it’s possible that there may be moisture inside. This can prevent the device from charging. Normally, your device should show a “Moisture detected” warning in such situation. Not getting one though does not mean the charging port is 100% free of moisture. If you suspect that the charging port may be wet, consider drying the phone.

An easy way to do home drying is by using uncooked rice or packs of silica gel (the thing that comes with your shoe box). If using rice, make sure cover your device with fully with it. Then, seal the container and leave the phone there for at least 48 hours.

A more effective way to home dry your device is to use silica gel packs instead of rice. It absorbs moisture faster than rice so you can cut the drying time for about half the time. So, instead of leaving the device inside a sealed container for 2 days, 24 hours will do.  You can get silica gel packs from your local crafts store.

Galaxy J6 Plus stopped charging fix #6: Charge on Safe Mode

At times, a bad app may interfere with Android and prevent charging. To check, run your phone on safe mode and see how it charges. While on safe mode, no third party apps or services will be allowed to run. So, if one of the third party apps is responsible for the issue, your S9 should charge normally on safe mode.

To boot your device to safe mode:

  1. With your J6 Plus off, press and hold the Power key past the model name screen.
  2. When “SAMSUNG” appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  3. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.

  4. After you uninstall an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem.
  5. If your Galaxy J6 Plus still refuses to power back on, repeat steps 1-4.
