J7 Stuck In Charging Mode
Problem: My phone is stuck with charging mode. My battery always has a lighting bulb on it. And the percentage reads 0% all the time.
Solution: The first thing that you need to do in this case is to clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in the port is removed as this can cause charging problems. Once this is done try to check if the phone is still stuck in charging mode. If it is then the next step is to check if a software glitch is causing the problem. For this you will need to backup your phone data then do a factory reset. If this doesn’t fix the problem then this is most likely a hardware related issue already in which case you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

- Start the phone in Safe Mode. When the phone operates in this mode only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run. Check if the issue still occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then the problem could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

J7 Does Not Start After Screen Replacement
Problem: I have Samsung J7 with broken screen. I purchased a new screen installed it but now phone just goes to Samsung J7 screen then goes to a gray screen and restarts. Any thoughts?
Solution: The problem could be caused by a faulty replacement screen. To verify if this is the case try starting the phone in recovery mode. If you can access this mode then it’s possible that a software glitch is the culprit. You will have to do a factory reset in this mode. Take note that the reset will erase your phone data.
In case the issue persists then it’s either the replacement screen is faulty or an internal component got damaged during the screen replacement. The best thing to do right now is to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

All of the sudden this week, when I try to view emails on the app I see the email title but there is no body to the message. In the space where the body of the message should be it says, “View More” in blue, but nothing happens if I try to click on it. I have gone into Manage Applications and force stopped the gmail app. I have also rebooted, removed battery, etc… to no avail. Any suggestions? Thank you!

If you can access your email then the account does not have a problem, it’s now time to troubleshoot the phone.What you will want to do first is to make sure that Internet connection is not causing the problem. Try connecting the phone to a different Wi-Fi network. You should also try using your mobile data subscription in getting the emails.
