Note 5 Blue LED Light After Phone Drop

Problem: I dropped my phone today on the floor (inside of a wallet type of casing) and since then there has been a constantly on blue light by the indicator and if i hold on the power button i see a flashing blue light along the right side of the screen. Reboot didn’t work and I now have it charging but I see no difference from what I had previously listed.

Solution: The first thing that you should do in this particular case is to simulate a battery pull. This is done by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. Normally, your phone will restart after performing this procedure.

If the problem persists then follow the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging of your phone using a can of compressed air.
  • Charge your phone for at least 20 minutes using a charging cord and wall charger that is known to work.
  • Turn on your phone.

If the problem persists then one last troubleshooting step you can do is to start the phone in recovery mode then do a factory reset. Take note that the reset will erase your phone data. If this doesn’t fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

Note 5 Restarts Randomly

Problem: My samsung galaxy note 5 restarts randomly. I have done factory reset and also cleared cache. But still same problem

Solution: Since you already performed a factory reset which didn’t fix the problem then you should consider flashing your phone with its updated stock firmware file using Odin. You can download this file from the Sammobile website where you will also find the instructions on how to flash your phone.

If the issue persists then this might already be a hardware related problem in which case you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Note 5 Custom Binary Blocked By FRP Error

Problem: After crossing data over from my other Note 5 to this note5 via wireless and Samsung switch app, the phone asked to restart to take effect which I did. The phone would not come back on and saying in red in top left hand corner. CUSTOM BINARY BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK. I have tried all known things to try reboot it but nothing works, can you help me ??

Solution: The FRP lock or Factory Reset Protection lock is a security feature that prevents your lost phone from being factory reset. This feature was first introduced in Android Lollipop. There are several ways to bypass this feature by taking advantage of some loopholes in the software but Google patches these up often making these methods useless. The best way to deal with this problem is to enter the last Google account details ( username and password) that was registered on the device.

Note 5 Stuck On AT&T Logo

Solution: If a factory reset is not an option then the following troubleshooting steps are what you need to perform.

  • Simulate a battery pull by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. Normally, your phone should restart after this.
  • Connect your phone to a charger and let it charge for at least 20 minutes. With the phone still connected to the charger check if it turns on.
  • Wipe the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode.

If the above steps fails to fix the problem then you should now consider doing a factory reset.

Note 5 Not Display Not Working With Finger

Problem: I have rebooted my phone 3 times and turned it on and off 3 times and even factory reset my phone and my screen will only register my finger touch every once in awhile and if I use my pen it works fine but not with my finger.

Solution: It looks like your phone already has a faulty digitizer. I recommend that you have this checked at a service center.

Note 5 Battery Drains Very Fast

Problem: Hello, My wife and I usually change phones at the same time to the same model. So, in late 2015, we both switched to Samsung Note 5. We have had a great experience, until recently, my wife is having problems with her phone. So, we have the same phone model, the same carrier, the same plan, and I am the more intense user, so, it is not that she runs out of minutes or data. And believe me, my phone has had more falls than hers. Still, the last month she has very spotty reception, and very poor data transfer. Yesterday, we were driving, she had H, and I had LTE+. She already changed the SIM card. Also, I suppose it is related, her phone, specially at work, drains battery really fast, if not placed on airplane mode. Any ideas how to fix it?

Solution: One of the reasons why the phone is draining its battery very fast is because it is getting a spotty reception. When this happens the phone will boost the power of its antenna which then uses up more battery life.  What you should do in this case is to backup the phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete do not install anything in the phone yet. Try to check first if the issue still occurs. If it does then bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
