S6 Takes 7-8 Hours To Charge
Problem: Hey there I’m having a problem with my s6(not a edge),I dont know whats the average charging time of a s6 normally,but my phone takes 7-8 hours to charge on normal slow charge(i.e not using the fast charge option). Sometimes i go sleep at 9pm and wake up at 4am and the battery is still not full.I try using the fast charging as less as possible,because i heard it weakens the battery dramatically, so i try avoiding it.Any help on what could be the issue? Please reply with some help. I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much
Solution: What you will want to do first in this case is to isolate the charger to check if this is causing the problem. Follow the troubleshooting steps below to properly do this.
- Clean the charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris stuck in this port is removed as it can cause charging issues.
- Try using a different charging cord first.
- Try using a different wall charger.
If the issue still occurs after performing the steps listed above then the next step is to check if the phone software is causing the problem.
- Try charging your phone when it is running in Safe Mode. If the issue doesn’t occur then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
- Try doing a factory reset if the above step doesn’t fix the problem. Make sure to backup your phone data first.
Should the issue still remain then you have to bring your phone to a service center and have the battery checked.
S6 Will Not Charge
Problem: Hi, So my Samsung Galaxy S6 will not charge on the cord. Just last night I plugged it in to charge it and it worked fine, but when i went to plug it in again, nothing. I tried plugging my phone into 3 other chargers and 2 other wall outlets. However when i plug the charger cord into my phone charger pad that I bought with the phone and then place my charger on top of the pad it charges just fine. 2 days ago my phone fell out of my pocket and into the snow but i quickly wiped it off and it was fine. and charged 2 nights in a row just fine. What’s wrong?
Solution: There could be an issue with the charging port of your phone. Try cleaning this port using a can of compressed air making sure that any dirt or debris present in this port is removed. Once this is done try charging your phone again using different charging cords and wall chargers if needed. If the issue still remains then it’s possible that the snow might have damaged the charging port assembly. I’d recommend that you have this checked at a service center.
S6 not turning On After Charging
Problem: Can you help me with this… My phone was turned off, then placed to charge. Got to 100% but would not turn on, and now it is not even being able to charge again. What can I do to get it to work again?
Solution: For this particular issue you will need to first try to do a simulated battery pull. To do this just press and hold both the power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. If your phone doesn’t restart then try charging it for at least 20 minutes using a different charging cord and charger. If the phone still does not turn on then I suggest that you bring this to a service center and have it checked.

- Clean the charging port of your phone making sure to remove dirt or debris present in it.
- Try charging the phone for a least 20 minutes using a different charging cord.
- If the phone doesn’t respond to charging then try using a different wall charger.

S6 Charges Very Slow After Software Update
Problem: Ever since I did the latest update, my phone charges extremely slow and sometimes not at all. Also, websites and videos load a lot slower. The soft reset didn’t help. I don’t know what to do.
Solution: Try to check first if the charger is causing this issue by doing the troubleshooting steps listed below.
- Try cleaning the charging port of your phone first using a can of compressed air then check if the charging speed improves.
- Replace the charging cord that you are using.
- Try using a different wall charger.
If the issue still remains then I suggest that you backup your phone data then do a factory reset. This will remove any old software data that has not been removed during the update process and is most likely the cause of this problem.
S6 Turns Off When Taken Off Charger
Problem: Every time I take my phone off of charge it, will shut off. It was doing fine until it was sent in for a new battery. Ever since I got it back, it will not power on unless it is plugged into the charger. It is a galaxy s6
Solution: This problem could either be caused by a faulty battery or a defective power IC. I’d recommend that you have this checked at a service center.
S6 Battery Draining Quickly
Problem: Hello I am an s6 user. From past week onwards i have a notice that my s6 is draining to quickly. My phone does not last for more than 4 hrs. Will battery replacement solve my issue .if it does solve the problem than how much will it cost? Forgot to mention but i am an heavy user of s6. I hope you will help me out with my problem. Thanks for help
Solution: What you will need to do first in this case is to check if the phone software is causing the problem. Backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete don’t install anything in your phone yet. Try to check first if the battery still drains quickly. If it does then you will need to have the battery replaced. The average price for the battery of this device is $15 for expect to pay more than this amount if you will let a service center handle the replacement.
