S6 Edge Replacement Charging Port Not Working

Problem: Hi my mum in law said her phone charger stopped working when I looked at it the usb port was pretty buggered and just assumed it was broken (the charger and cable where fine) so bought a new charger port flex swapped it over but I didn’t get any sign of charge is there a some kind of charger protection soft/hardware type protection I also tried safe mode and clearing the cache with no sign of charging. Also seems to charge fine with the qi wireless but I had already got the part before I tested so I thought I may as well fix it just to find it didn’t fix the problem

Solution: Once you have replaced the damaged charging port of the phone with a new one then it should be charging with a wall charger without any issues. Since it does not charge and but  phone will charge wirelessly then it’s either the replacement charging port is damaged or the charger that you are using is not working. Try charging the phone using a different charging cord and wall charger. If this does not work then you will have to try checking the connections of the charging port assembly and make sure that it is properly attached to the phone. You should also consider getting another charging port assembly as the one you have on the phone might be damaged.

S6 Edge no Mobile Data After SIM Replacement

Problem: Hi I recently bought a new sim for my phone as my old one was too large for this phone. I haven’t transferred my data from the previous one to the new one yet though the new one notices I’m on vodafone but I cannot open the vodafone app as it doesn’t show any signs of connecting to the data. I can turn it on but no icon or anything will indicate that the data is actually on. It’s very confusing and I would like help as to why the data isn’t showing or working. Thanks ps. There’s no dodgy apps or cached data that could be affecting it.

Solution: To fix this problem you need to make sure that your SIM has an active mobile data subscription. You should also make sure that the phone has the correct APN settings set.

Problem: My friends who call me they complain about my voice volume going up and down. And they having hard time to hear me properly. Earlier I thought I was by mistake pressing the volume while holding but it’s the same thing if I use a headset or not. And interestingly I even tried a factory reset on my phone and it did not work. Can you please help.

Solution: If the issue still remains after a reset then the last troubleshooting step that you can do is to try going to a different area and check if the issue still occurs. This way you can verify if the problem is caused by the network. In case the issue persists then you will need to bring this to a service center and have it checked.
