  5. Hi. I am Adina and I will send you an email from Iran. I have a Galaxy S6 mobile device, which was Android 5 when it was purchased, and then upgraded to 6 and 7 later. Next Getting Android 7 has problems with my device, such as slowing down the device and other problems. I tend to get Android 7.1.1 or 7.1.2 or 8.0. I want to register to get it. Unfortunately, although I sent emails to Samsung on several occasions in Iran, I did not receive an answer. I ask for help and hope to guide me in this case. Thank you.

  6. Hello!

    How are you? I hope this email finds you well!

    I stumbled across your website the other day and was interested in learning more about your advertising goals. I have a network of advertisers and buyers at my disposal and would love to get them plugged into your ad inventory. We’ve seen significantly larger revenues come from our buyers for websites that have integrated the ads.txt file like yours. Do you have some time in the next week or so to hop on a call to discuss further?

    Kind regards,

  7. Hi,

    I’d just like to send my heartfelt THANKS to you.
    My HTC10 was bricked during the installation of the Oreo update: 3.16.401.2 [which killed my phone at 90% installed]
    Your article:
    https://thedroidguy.com/2016/09/fix-htc-10-wont-turn-boot-troubleshooting-guide-1061281

    helped me to get it working again.
    I was not getting any response using the on/off button at all. I used the up/down buttons with the power button to get life back into the phone, saving me enormous hassle and probable expense too.
    Thank you so very much.

  12. Thank you! your re-starting tipps are very helpful. I had a system crash. black screen. just had a system update two days ago. never before. must be a faulty system update.

  18. My phone is working and everything, Ive received notifications and phone calls, But the problem is that I cant see it because my phone is just a blank screen. I tried everything from safe mode to factory reset but it does not appear to show up. Before it used to at least flicker and turn on after a few tries of pressing the power button but now it doesn’t even turn on. Im not sure what to do. Any help will do.

  19. I bought a galaxy s7 edge and when I did a master reset now it’s asking for the original Google account password witch I do not have is there anyway to get around that

  20. I m using galaxy Note 4 N910C, which i have had for 15 month.
    Since the last 2 or 3 months, the battery drain increased a lot, and it goes incredibly fast from 30~20% to 0%. Sometimes it may even shut when at 20…I m thinking this is happening because of OS update to marshmallow and since then no more updates for us.
    But right now my phone screen started flickering, my aplications became very laggy and unresponsive, and phone lost mobile signal (wifi still connected). I plugged the charger in and it still kept falling untill 0% and turned off.

    This is the problem I m also having. Many have got the same problem. Why it actually happening. Mostly seems to be software issues. After factory reset my battery stays longer but within 2 to 3days again same problem. Because of marshmallow update. Fuck what the fucking developers doing ? We need one fuckin updatell to fix this issue.
    I have even heard that the battery calibration in android 6.0.1 update has some sort of problem and recalibration would fix the problem for some but not for all since it didn’t fixed my problem. Anyone who has some ideas about this severe issue please help. Help will be appreciated. Thank you.

  21. Hello TDG. My S7 edge just won’t respond when I try to turn it on. Here’s what actually happened. Last night, my phone died in the car so i tried to charge it with my power bank and my car but they both didn’t work. When I got home i tried charging it with a wall plug and it turned on and then turned off I tried it 5 times until it stop charging and the charging indicators stop working. So now its a dead phone that doesn’t charge. Should I have it repaired? What’s the problem with it? Help me please.” — Jackson

  22. Few days ago, I couldn’t turn on my phone. I pressed the power button, and it showed the “T Mobile” logo as normal. But then later it kept vibrating and got hotter and hotter. It went to the point that I couldn’t hold the phone in my hand anymore. I think it stopped when the battery ran out, and slowly cooled down. I charged my phone the next day, and tried again but it didn’t work. It just showed the screen, kept buzzing, and kept getting hotter. Could it be because of it’s exposure to water?

  23. My S8
    use to list text messages in the order of most resent.
    Now it just seems random
    I have and others have tried to find the setting to fix
    Any ideas
    Thanks

  29. hello….
    i have a samung galaxy s8…..my screen is green and the phone doesn’t charge….can you help me pleasee..

  30. Hello. My galaxy j3 eclipse won’t allow me to listen to voicemails. I can open the app and press play but when I put it to my ear to hear it the phone goes to the lock screen and stops the voicemail.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

  31. My Galaxy s8 freezes at least once a week. I can not turn it off and have to wait for the battery to run down – which gets really hot. I have called the warranty office. They run a diagnostic check – which allegedly tells them everything is okay – but it is not. it froze Saturday – I just had the diagnostic run by the warranty office and it is frozen again this morning. I am afraid the battery will explode. Can you help?

  32. I came here through Google. I honestly can say I wish to never run into it again. In a single article, besides regular ads, there were 1 pop ad, 1 ad covering content and 2 auto play videos. Terrible, terrible user experience. I hope you’ll reconsider and think about building an audience instead of milking first time visitors whilst making sure they never come back again.

  37. Your Android Questionare Form is not working. It will not accept “Name” nor text and jumps to the “Devise” bo.
    My problem is with my S5, at first icons for apps I’d moved to the SD card with App Manager III would turn grey and not work. I kept trying to redownload them but now Storage doesn’t even recognize the card. I hooked it to a USB on my computer and all the files seem fine. What could it be?

  38. hi mate, i’m using a LG H522F
    my stock ROM that i bought in a market i deleted it (because of the too many adds) and replaced it with the LG Prime Plus H522f.kdz …after the flash (with LG Flash Tool 2014) everything was clean and perfect. Now i tryied to get root privileges, i did find the proper root, but the ADB wasn’t working, so i must had have a proper recovery rom, so, i download the proper TWRP for my LG… after i flash it using an app (flashify.apk, i think) the device restarted but only a black screen came out… no errors, no triangles, nothing. no boot loop… just empty… i tryied hold power 30sec, tryied recovery mode, download mode, charging (while being careful for the battery doesnt damage)… i can flash that ROM i have (.kdz) but my pc doesnt recognize the USB port because it looks like its turned off, even while charging…

    please,
    how can i fix this?

  39. Hello Folks: I have been using Apple products for the last decade, but recently, I decided to try the Android OS. So, I bought a couple of Nokia 8 phones at Amazon. Unfortunately, both phones arrived with the factory’s seal broken, and someone actually used the phones before I got them — I notice this, because, the dates on the phones were changed, one set to the Month of February and March respectively. This dates differ from an initial setup which sets the default date to January First, Year XX. The real problem would be, if someone else inserted a SIM Card and use it to receive SMS code confirmations for online services such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and so on. Not to mention, any criminal activities someone else could perform using my phones before I got them. In other words; The Phone’s IMEI numbers could be, already, associated with someone else SIM card. There is also the Risk that the phones could have malware, such as a Trojan Horse, or Spyware such as the Cerberus App. I have already contacted the Police, to inquire if they could request to the main Mobile Phone Operators, if they have any records of the Phone’s IMEI numbers on their logs, and which phone numbers were used. I am awaiting response. On the other hand, I know Google keeps logs of IMEI numbers too – when setting up a Google Play Store Account. I would like to ask you, if you know, the email address of Google Security Team, so I can request or verify, if they have any existing logs of my Phone’s IMEI numbers, prior to setting up a Google Play Store account myself. Thanks for your time, any suggestions will be Highly Appreciated. By the way, when you buy bran new items at Amazon, you, as the buyer, expect nothing more than Excellence and Respect, something is not working well, I am paying the consequences.

  40. I rebooted my phone I put my phone on safe mode and I had a new refurbished phone sent to me that I had updated with the new software version and for some reason I cannot stop my phone from shutting off on its own. And then at that point the only way I can get the phone to turn back on if you have it charging while I hit the power on button. Samsung advised me to take him to a Samsung facility to have them update the newest software and I just did that today and my phone is still shutting off on its own. At this point I’m not sure what to do do you have any advice. Thank you

  41. Hi,
    My Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has recently had issues with reboot looping. However now it is completely unresponsive. I have tried all the reboot techniques to no avail. It is currently on charge with no indication of anything happening at all. Do I have any options other than getting a new phone?

  42. hey there! Hope you immediately notice my message. My dad bought me a samsung s8 last June and at first I’m loving it because of its camera and how big the memory of it. But one time I accidentally drop it off but it’s not that hard, none of its parts were broke or crack. But yesterday the screen of it was freeze w/o any reason and it turned off by itself. Then now while I’m playing my music using my phone, I’m about to used it but it freezes again and shows up some glitch on its screen and turns off again. I don’t what is happening to my phone. I already scan my device and the result is good. I don’t want it to complaint to my dad cause I know I’ll be dead. Please help me.

  46. Thank you TheDroidGuy for posting the troubleshooting suggestions. My Samsung Galaxy SII turned on after trying Step 2. Thank you so much.

  47. I have an android HTC phone and it keeps restarting constantly and when I try to do a hard reset it just has a insufficient storage error on it and then it keeps on restarting afterwards if you can help me it would mean so much

  48. In your basic troubleshooting for Essential Phone PH-1, you stated one could wipe the system cache in recovery mode. I wonder if any of the troubleshooting steps highlighted where done in practice, because as with Pixel devices, Wipe Cache Partition doesn’t exist on the Essential Phone PH-1.

  49. Several of your fixes say “replace the display assembly”. Can you please be more specific on what this actually means for what needs replacing…..ie; screen glass / digitizer / LCD / etc.?
    Thank you

  55. Hello,I need your help. I am using the Samsung Galaxy S5 g900i and i recently upgraded from Lollipop to Marshmallow, when i was installing the update it was stuck on “Android is upgrading” and this was going on for 4 hours and i switch it off to clear the cache, it was still doing the same thing but now it is stuck on the Samsung Logo. Because the Re-activation lock is on, i cannot flash, root or do anything to it.

    ANY SOLUTIONS??

  56. My galaxy s5 would not update, it kept getting interrupted for some reason. I followed you advice and made sure I had plenty of space on my phone to install the update or whatever. In order to make room, however, I had to in install some bigger apps to make room. Shouldn’t have been a big deal, I can always redownload them after, even if the update still doesn’t work. The update was still interrupted and did not work. I followed your advice and I HD almost 8GB of available space for this update and it didn’t work. So I was just going to give up and deal with the constant failing of the update until I made my way to at&t to see if they could update it somehow. I went to redownload all my apps, and most of them worked, except netflix and hulu. The play store said that “my device isn’t compatible with this version” and I could not install this hose apps. This is really frustrating to me because I had this hose hem before, without the latest version of my software, but now I can’t get them. I work nights and I watch those apps in my breaks. Now what am I supposed to do? Is there anything I can do?

  57. Hello, I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and I’ve tried to download the latest form of android software. I’ve tried 4 different times and it goes through the whole process (downloading, installing, and optimizing). Then as soon as I start to use my phone again, I get a message that says the new update has been installed. After that, it shows up on the top of my screen that the update is ready to install again. I’m not sure what’s going on. I appreciate any help.

  58. Hello, at first…im aorry for my English.:p
    So i have an S7edge. And it stuck at “downloading……”. I cant turn it off. The problem is, it isnt in the “odin mode’. I cant do with it anything. I tried to install an another software from the same Phone with the “odin mode”. But every software i try to install is failing up. What should i do with my phone….. now i got an S8Plus, but still my s7edge is important too

  59. Re: Galaxy Note 5.
    Friend of mine has a Note 5. I have an iPhone 6+. When we are in a call: I can hear every sound on his phone(Note5), all his videos playing, his calls coming in, sometimes even what his caller is saying faintly, while I’m on hold. Sometimes I hear a repetitive gaming sound (always same), must be from one of the ads on Facebook or Google. Restarting the Note 5 makes the gaming sound go away but not the sound of playing YouTube videos. I can even hear when his phone is going dead and then little clicking when it’s charging. It’s driving us both insane. Please help. We are not on a speakerphone, we always use headphones. The phone is just a year old if that.

    Please HELP

    I found this post on androidcentral forum, but nobody answered it – Samsung user same issue , but without a headset : Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+:

  66. Hello and Good Evening,

    I have read the information about fixing my phone. But I have a problem with my phone as my phone mentions it is “Unable to start” where I have to reset my phone as it will delete my data. I obviously don’t want to risk of deleting my data. I would be thankful if you could fix the solution.

    PS I have no problem with the battery.

  67. Hi I have a android galaxy s5 from at&t that is unlocked and I’m using for straight talk. My phone is not receiving or sending MMS or allowing me to use the Internet but I can receive calls and text messages. I’ve gone through all my settings and I’m not sure what to do. Can you possibly give me a little insite? I fixed the problem when I first got the phone months ago but I just recently did a system update that undid that I suppose. I forgot what to do.

  68. I was unable to use your website as all the adverts made it impossible to read, one advert you have that is on the bottom of articles means that I am unable to read articles. After a few seconds of going to the top of the page I’m dragged back down to the bottom of the page where the advert is. Tried refreshing and opening up the page in new tab and same problem. Bit ironic that I came here to fix a problem only to be faced with another. Anyway hope you can get this fixed.

  86. Your advice on the S8 moisture issue is bogus. Tons of people are encountering it with no moisture exposure. I’ve done the whole blowdrying thing, but it’s not wet. The only thing that seems to help is rebooting. Software error? If you Google Samsung galaxy S8 and moisture, there are at least 13 pages of people experiencing the same issue

I’ve tried a ton of solution but It doesn’t work, I ‘ve bought 2 battery for replacement. But It still the same. I live in Cambodia and there is no Samsung company in my country. Could you tell me the solution? What should I do?

  92. hi guys i have a question for you, I ve got a MI5. The issue started with the phone not charging, I plugged it to my computer and still didnt work so I went to the store and tryed other chargers but still didnt work. Then I went back to the original charger and it started working again, to charge I mean, but then the phone is still not recognized by the computer. So I cant have any access to my phone storage, do you think is the phone’s usb problem or that i can try fixing it changing some settings ???

  95. Hello, I’m tempted to get a bargain LG V20 because I love it’s big screen, powerful hardware and all the niceties that brings, aside I’ve read that is very repairable, but I’m not sure if I will get a buggy device because all that bootloop stories and LG’s bad history over it’s latest flagship devices. What do you think? Would you recommend it over, let’s say a Moto G+ 5th? Thanks in advance for your advice.

  96. While providing fixes forover heating issues, why not recommend ditching the case or is this a non factor?

  97. My galaxy s3 has been sitting in a drawer, unused for a few years. It turned on no problem last week. It died and now it won’t turn on. I charged it, and when I hit the power button i will vibrate as if it’s reacting to the press but the screen won’t turn on now.. yet it did no problem less than a week ago :s

  98. Hi
    please I have a Samsung galaxy j8(2006)
    once in a while, most if not all the apps do not respond, am even able to access my setting menu during such times. please what do I do

  99. A couple days ago, my Samsung S6 Edge made a system update overnite and now I’m not able to enter my phone. It asks for the swipe code, but won’t recognize it. After entering various patterns it won’t lock and ask for my pin code. Is there a way to unlock the phone by other means?

  100. Hi
    I have a galaxy edge S6, this morning I went to use it and the screen was unresponsive. All the keys were working but the screen just wouldn’t respond to any touch! I read all the related posts on your page and followed the instructions and still nothing. My last resort was to do a factory reset since I was so frustrated and I read that this could be the last thing I could try by myself without needing it to take it for repair. So I did the factory reset and the problem still did not solve I couldn’t pass the welcome screen since I could not get any response from the screen. I decided it to take it to a repair shop and there they told me it was a screen issue, the cost was so expensive but since it was the only thing left to do I decided to do it. When I walked in to the store the battery was very low but the phone was on. Now I was standing there watching the guy open it and looking at it and he said he would try to check the cable if it’s just a connection issue but that did not do anything so he said he would try a new screen. As he was doing it the phone just died on him and he went to charge it he said that this was not a screen issue it’s an issue with a motherboard and he can’t do anything about it’s very complex he said. So he put everything back together and said that this phone is useless nd it needs to be replaced. I was so mad because I walked in with a screen problem that could ve been easily solved and I walked out with a dead phone “broken motherboard” .I tried to tell him that my phone was on and was operating when I walked in how come you give it back to me not working at all! He said I’m sorry I can’t do anything about it and he kept telling me to go and buy a new phone!

    Could he have done something that created the motherboard issue? What can I do now to fix it. I paid a Lotta money for it I’m so mad that not even 6 months later I find myself without a phone a d I don’t have insurance or anything because I bought it brand new in another country.

    Please help!

  104. I just wanted to thank you, because I just bought a Samsung S7 Edge with the latest firmware installed and the phone was restarting frequently. But after I read this article “How to fix Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge that restarts randomly after the system update [Troubleshooting Guide]”, I deleted the cache partition and after the reboot everything was as it should been from beginning. No more restarts!

    So thank you and keep up the good work

  105. You call yourself ‘The Droid Guy’. No doubt you fancy yourself as tech-savvy. I think you’re full of shit.

    Your answers on here are a joke – they mainly consist of Microsoft-like, generic, proforma answers. All you seem capable of doing is stating the obvious trouble-shooting steps to a problem (which most users would’ve already tried), and then suggesting a factory reset. How pathetic.

  106. I have a Samsung 10.1 galaxy notebook. When I play solitaire it’s like the screen is not lined up. I have to touch below the cards to get them to move. It only does this on solitare. Please help me, it’s very frustrating. Thanks Tee.

  107. I have a droid 5s, and it will not charge completley.

    I went running with it and it
    also fell off my table when I was sleeping and it had the charger inside. I was
    reading the website and someone similar had this issue, one of the corrective
    actions were to check if it has water damage first by using a bag of rice, or
    the other issue may be the charging port the defected.

    The phone will catch a charge,
    but I have to hold it at a specific angle. Does this mean that the charging
    point is not working, or that it has water damage?

  108. Please tell me why, in the wide, wide world of sports would I even bother to use iTunes to sync my Android device? That bloated mass of ads is one of the most unwieldy,disgraceful, user-unfriendly piece of crap I have ever used! I don’t even use it for my iPhone, let alone my Android device!!I use MediaMonkey for both. Be that as it may, but it begs the question why do we need a third-party software for Android when all you need to do is drag and drop?? Sweet! That is why I love Android! Who needs the extra work, time, and frustration?

  109. Thanks so much for all the troubleshooting tips on this site! I was quickly able to find out why my Samsung suddenly stopped sending text messages, and one of your suggested solutions fixed the problem. Appreciate having this resource online!

  110. i set my keyboard to where my pass code swipe is on the bottom right of my screen as well as my keyboard. i want to switch it back to the normal setting but cant seem to figure it out. thanks

  111. Thanks,
    My Samsung s6 Edge went into a weird loop of “home screen..off ..home screen.. off etc.
    You reset protocol helped fix it. thanks.

  112. I have a samsung Note 5. I need to know info regarding the photo gallery. There is an option to “animate” and allows a slideshow type video to be able to be made. I spent an hour on a project, went to upload to fb and the video never uploads, only the first pcture i have in my video. No play button, nothing. It asks me if i would like to share, so how do i share the animation?
    Thanks, stacy

  113. thanks so much phone would not turn on did the down vol. and power key reboot worked so pleased so not tech. savey thanks

  114. You lied about the Galaxy S6 not fast charging while in use or while the screen is on. This is just untrue. I’ve been having trouble getting my S6 to fast charge, but that is not why. Sometimes the fastcharge works properly, even with the screen on and being used. But if i move it the wrong way it will revert to a standard charge. Right now, it’s slow charging and says it will take nearly 5 hours. It seems the fast charge is actually a normal charge and i can’t imagine why it would take any modern cellular device 4 ir 5 hours to charge, that is extremely slow. They should call fastcharging just “charging”, and any other charging should be referred to as “slow charging”. Anyway, my point is that the Galaxy S6 will fast charge while in use. I’m not sure how you would come to any other conclusion unless you haven’t actually used one, or used a defective device.

  115. Hi I got outlook on my galaxy 7. How do I see all my inbox please. It goes after a few days. Thanks

  116. Hi, I have Samsung Galaxy Note 5 32(GB). It was loaded with Android 5.1.1 (Lollypop) by default. Since, I have upgraded the Original Firmware (OTA) from Lollypop to Marshmallow 6.0.1 (Not Rooted & Phone status is Official). My Note 5 Battery has started draining very fast even with Locked Screen with no application running in background. Secondly, my utmost concern is that I’m unable to find the option of Unlock Screen Effects (Sparkling Bubbles or Coloured Droplets), which were factory preloaded. I have tried all options to find the options for ”Unlock Effects” by removing Finger Print lock, Pattern and Pin lock and even tried factory reset (Soft Reset) but all in vain. Could you please clarify whether these effects were offered only in Lollypop 5.1.1 Version and removed in Marshmallow 6.0.1?. Is there any possibility of getting it back or should I downgrade to Lollypop in order to get the battery and Unlocking screen effects issues resolved???. Appreciated in advance.!!!

  126. Hello Everyone! I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that just suddenly turned off last night and wouldnt turn back on. Also, when I would try charging it it wouldnt seem to charge. I assumed that my phone had died and it wouldnt charge. I decided today that I would either buy a USB board and place the USB port thingy in my phone, or I’d buy a wireless charging pad. I was willing to pay almost anything to get my phone back up and running. I came across this website just a few mins ago in a last ditch effort to find any info I could on what might have happened. You told me to take the back cover off of my phone, take the battery out, and then hold the power button down for 1 minute to drain the existing electricity. I knew this wouldnt work because I have a charging problem but I did it anyway. After replacing my battery and putting my back cover on the phone I attempted to turn the phone back on. IT TURNED ON!!!!! And the phone isnt dead at all. Its at 69%. I was way wrong and you guys helped me get my phone back and save lots of money. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!!

  127. I have a galaxy note 4 that just recently stopped turning on.i tried soft resets,hard resets,and all others things except
    Hardware.Now this just started after the new update came and then the phone started acting erratic.Please help…

  128. I have a couple issues with my new galaxy s6 active. apps that ive downloaded update about 12 times a day, is this normal and if not how do I stop that? when I send a picture via text or hangout, it takes about 20 minutes of the little green circle spinning on the bottom right corner of the message before it actually sends, how can I speed up that process? my wife has the exact same phone and pictures send just as fast as text messages. also when I get certain emails, like the verification email when I just signed up for disqus, when I open the email the text and pictures r the size of the whole screen but they immediately shrink down to about a quarter of the screen size so I cannot read them and I can stretch them back out by dragging the screen but as soon as I stop touching the screen they go back to tiny. thanks for any help

  129. Hello, im looking for a dual sim ACTIVE phone, this need t o be able to take 2 calls at the same time, I don’t want to have switch between number(sims) does such a phone exist ?

  139. Hi, so I just got my new Galaxy S3 with an insurance claim on the 21st, it was working fine and then today it stopped working, it was fine its not the battery, I think its the screen, so basically this is what will happen. I’ll put the battery in the phone will vibrate the word samsung will show up and then it goes black, I can’t reset it, because I think it’s technically on. I figured I’d ask if you know what to do. Thank you

  140. I have a samsung Galaxy S4 the screen display is black but I can still see the small icons along with the time at the top of the screen. I can also see the pull down menu when I swipe downward from the top of the screen. When I restart the phone I get a screen for there password but then it goes blank after the password is entered. I have completely charged the phone restarted and did everything else I could think. The phone is for one of our users so who knows what they were doing before this happen.

  144. * * * GRIEVOUS PROBLEMS with Galaxy Tab S w/ 4.4.2 KitKat * * *

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and I’ve been recently noticing a bunch of problems with the “My Files” file explorer and with the camera.

    My Files symptoms include hanging when deleting groups of checked files (the spiral “barber” activity line continues forever, while it shows the final file. eg. “15/15″”). When I cancel out of the delete progress popup window, the files remain, and future attempts to delete the files result in “Delete Failed”. Also, the file names are sometimes listed with the image gallery app icon (or icon for the files’ associated apps) in front of them instead of the thumbnails of the respective images or files, etc. When I clear the My Files cache and restart the tablet. and then launch My Files again, the files I attempted to delete are gone (indicating that they were, in fact deleted), I tried to rename a file, and it became inaccessible, even though the file remained listed.

    Camera symptoms include the camera taking longer than usual to load, the viewfinder not showing what I’m aiming the camera at (it’s black), buttons not responding at all, the camera not taking the picture (when the buttons DO work), the most recent picture(s) not showing up in the list of most recent pictures taken (accessed via the lower right hand corner icon), etc.

    The problems seems to be less prevalent immediately after powering the tablet on. Also, I just had the tablet replaced about a month or two ago due to what appeared to be a significantly faster battery drain issue after upgrading to Lollipop 5.1 (I later learned that it was the upgrade that caused that problem). While the vendor only deals with open box/refurbished it looks as if the replacement the vendor sent me was actually a new one.

    When I call Samsung, the techs appear to be trained to robotically tell me to do a factory reset (Samsung might as well have a recorded message instructing callers to do this).

    I am totally DISGUSTED at this, and HOPE that 6.0 has fixed a lot of these issues!

    Can anyone offer me any help with this?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    i bought samsung galaxy s6 edge a week back and i found this phone perfect but i found a glitch it is almost unnoticeable, if i lock my screen normaly it goes off the way it should, but if i turn it off when the keyboard is out (like while texting, whatsapp, viber etc) it makes a blink a very short micro second blink, like you took a picture of your own screen. so is it a flaw or what please advice.
    Thank you.

  159. I used your troubleshooting website and it worked!! I’ve been trying to turn on my Galaxy 4 all morning. Thank you!

  160. Hi
    I bought the S6 edge last week and it is a great phone, however, there are a couple of things that are puzzling:
    1. in the music app you can get rid of the last track played it just runs along the bottom of the screen in ‘pause’. I have closed the app down in the multi windon and switched the phone off twice but it’s still there.
    2. I can’t use my own text notification message. There is no ‘add’ option in notification options. this works for for ringtones
    Anyone got any ideas please?
    Thanks

  161. I am Paul. My S2 underwent an accidental upgrade and after 2 days got stuck in a boot loop. After a day it stopped displaying anything. Now it is neither booting nor displaying the charging icon. It is only getting heated up. What could be the issue? Is it possible to extract the contacts and sms before proceeding for a soft / hard surgery?

  162. Heyo, I’m having an issue with the Samsung Galaxy S6. I’ve already read your article on “Samsung Galaxy S6 Rebooting Constantly”. It did absolutely nothing. Not to offend but I’ve tried EVERYTHING, I need your assistance now to move this forward. The device is constantly turning the main boot Logo on and off and on and off. It hasn’t stopped for over an hour, and until the device dies.. (which could take DAYS) it won’t be doing anything. The only button Combo that works is the one that pops up the ability to download a new OS (Custom OS – Volume Down + Power + Home) it doesn’t work if I hit ‘cancel/reboot’. It just does what its doing now. I’ve try the “Hard Reset” option, sadly I can’t TURN OFF THE PHONE WHEN ITS BLOODY DOING THIS SO PRETTY MUCH ALL OTHER OPTIONS ARE REDUNDANT. I need some assistance.

  163. How do we get rid of the dang pop up for enhanced features if we don’t want it on the samsung 6?

The problem seems to have stopped, but I am very concerned about all the other apps on my phone that I do and do not use. I need some direction about what I can remove and what must stay. I use my phone for calls, texts, hangouts, pictures and rarely maps, waze, and internet. Obviously I need some guidance. A place to go for it would be very nice.

  184. hey there, i have a galaxy note 10.1 and the screen has gone all wonky and the colour is kind of polarised. it still works but it’s kinda tough to see whats going on on the screen. there hasn’t been any major falls or anything but i do carry it with me everywhere and it is over a year old. is this easily fixable or do i need to start worrying.

  185. I used to have galaxy S3 and I always could be on the line talking while I was searching on Google. I just got the galaxy S6 and I lost reception or just not strong WiFi connection …I would like to know why? I thought this new version will be better…very upset.

  186. i have had an issue with the recent software update lollipop 5.0. Every time i go to an app(messages, phone, play store, twitter, etc.) i have a galaxy s4. it changes different colors. there is not a way to turn this off. and also as well as the apps icon, i used to could scroll up and down but there is not a way i can do that it only allows me to scroll left and right. also when i hold down the power button it doesnt give me an option to put my phone on mute or vibrate anymore. the time at the notification bar, is way to big of a font. and it wont let me change the setting for that either.
    as well as i also did a factory reset on my phone hoping that it would fix the issue, and i backed up a lot of my pictures, music, etc. i also lost very VERY important pictures i needed and cant get them off the computer nor my gmail account. This software update has been nothing but a headache. As well as i was asleep and my phone is always hooked to the wifi and it updated while i was asleep. i am not very happy at all! Please fix the stated issues i have concerns about! thanks!

  226. I wrote to you recently about my Samsung Galaxy SII these are the issues :
    Texting then ‘Force Close’
    My problems started about 3 weeks ago now when it was failing to enter the Text facility. I cannot view, write nor compose any text.
    Very long story short, Samsung chap ‘Ibby’, got me to do a Reboot (NOT a factory reset) the chap ‘promising’ that it wouldn’t change anything! It did !
    Since this rebbot, where previously is was ONLY the texting that was a problem, I am now unable to use the cameras, the alarm clocks (it can turn on the current ones on those days but no changes can be made), all pictures have gone and I am really worried that I have now possibly lost ALL the texts. I get constant and ongoing dialogue boxes telling me something isn’t working and ‘Force Close’ is the only option.
    I wonder if a software update might sort this – but will it?
    I wonder if a factory reset will sort everything ? But as I would lose all the texts for sure I haven’t wanted to do this (yet) until I have exhausted every possibility of saving the texts.!
    Please help if you can, it would be so very appreciated. 😀

  234. I have a Samsung Note 3, recently it tried to do an update without permission and it got “stuck” in the process. None of my apps work including my photo gallery, all I can do is send/receive texts and send/receive calls. The Samsung Tech referred to it as an App crash. It will not connect to the internet either. Upon contacting Samsung they told me to download Kies3 and back up my phone, however, Kies3 is not compatible with my computers operating system and security settings. At this point I am ready to do a factory reset on it but my pictures are still on the phone somewhere, I just can’t access them. I know they are there because they are showing up as space used just not physically there. Hope that is not confusing. When I went to AT&T to have them look at it the guy said that someone somehow “rooted” aka unlocked my phone… was I hacked?? He told me the phone was pretty much junk at this point and I should get a new one… sales technique?? Do you have any ideas before I do a factory reset and loose all of my daughters baby pics forever??

  243. I just got a Samsung Galaxy S 5. I have easily connected to my home wifi. However, once connected, nothing works. Facebook sign in fails, Google can’t load search results. The signal is strong. If I “forget” the set-up and reconnect, everything works. If I turn the wifi off and reconnect, everything fails again. I have to forget the set-up and begin again to get the connection to work. I never had this problem with my S 3. What gives? I’ve checks all the settings and all looks fine. What’s going on? Don’t know if this is related, but I can’t connect to my car’s Bluetooth either. The system sees the phone and the phone sees the system, but they will not pair. This is is huge problem, as I commute 50 miles one way to work every day. I need my Bluetooth connection in the car!

(At least I thought) It reboots about 50 times a day again. Please tell me how to make this stop. It even reboots during calls. I don’t want to break my phone, but I get so mad at times, I just wanna throw the darn thing at the wall. I feel its the update that is doing this,,,
