S6 Edge Overheating Not Charging
Problem: i was on facebook live for 1 hour with 60% battery life and on maximum power saving mode. it was definitely overheating but didn’t do anything since it was an important event. then when i went to check later around 1.5 hour later, i think the battery died and was black so i tried to charge. but no charging notification or indication light is on and i cannot switch it on again!
Solution: A phone will usually heat up when you are using a data connection and are streaming some content. If the phone gets too hot then this might mean that something is wrong with the battery. In this case the phone does not charge or even turn on which means that this could be a hardware related problem possibly caused by a faulty battery.
To troubleshoot this problem what you will need to do first is to clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in this port is removed. Once this is done perform a simulated battery pull by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. If the phone does not restart then change it for at least 20 minutes. If there is no charging indicator then try using a different charging cord and wall charger to charge the phone.
In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
S6 Edge Not Turning On After Drop In Water
Problem: Hello there, Last week I dropped my phone (s6 edge) in water. I left it to dry for a few hours before turning it on and then it wouldn’t respond. I let it dry for even longer (days) and when putting it on charge, a Battery symbol would come up and disappear. I then ordered a new battery and left it to dry till then however, the phone will now switch on but says phones not charging and promptly dies. Also the battery symbol says 96% when charging and off along with a thermometer in a triangle. Could there have been some water left when I installed the new battery? What do you reckon is the issue? Cheers
Solution: If you have carefully inspected the inside of the phone to be free of water when you replaced the battery then it’s unlikely that some water might be left. I think this issue is caused by some other component that got water damaged. This could be the charging port, the power IC, or any other component that might have short circuited. The best way to determine what component is failing to work is to have your phone checked at a service center that specializes in board level repairs.
S6 Edge Not Turning On After Using Custom Param.Bin File
Problem: I created a custom param.bin file using this tutorial https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s6/themes-apps/mod-custom-boot-splash-t3130557 but replacing the the dev/block/ with the correct location of param.bin for the s6 edge partition. When I tried to start it the screen went blank and I got no signs of life. After a couple days the charging screen came on when plugged in and charged to 100%, but when I tried to start it, it again it went blank and the phone showed no more signs of life for a couple hours. Will not boot into download, recovery or regular.
Solution: It looks like the phone software has been corrupted. Your aim right now is to flash the phone with its updated stock firmware file using Odin. Since the phone does not boot in download mode then this will be a problem. What you will want to do is to attempt a battery pull first by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. Your phone should restart after this. In case the phone remains unresponsive then try charging it for at least 20 minutes. Once the phone charges you try starting the phone in download mode and if it does you can now flash it using Odin.
In case the above steps doesn’t work then you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Problem: after pressing the lock button for a while, the screen gets covered with red and green lines with white bars in the center (probably the samsung logo). It gets stuck like that and i cant use my phone anymore. resets don’t work. help please.
Solution: If you have already performed a factory reset and the issue still occurs then this could already be a hardware related problem possibly caused by a faulty display. You will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked if this is the case.

Solution: One last troubleshooting step that you should consider doing is to flash the phone with its updated firmware file using Odin. You can download the firmware file of your phone from the Sammobile website. Instructions on how to flash you phone are also available in this website.
In case this still fails to fix the problem then this could already be caused by an internal component that is failing to work. The best way to proceed right now is to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
