S7 Edge Does Not Fast Charge

Problem: Hi! My Galaxy S7 Edge does not want to fast charge through the usb cable, and i have tried to soft reset it, and even factory reset. I have a feeling that it might have something to do with the usb port, but i am not sure. I have used multiple cables and even used the charger with different wall sockets in my house, but nothing seems to be working. What should i do?

Solution: If you have already performed a factory reset which doesn’t fix the problem then this might already be a hardware related issue. Listed below are the troubleshooting steps that you need to do to fix this problem.

  • The first step is to clean the charging port of your phone as sometimes dirt or debris stuck in this port can cause charging problems. Use a can of compressed air to clean the port. Once this is done try to check if the issue still occurs.
  • Try using a different charging cord. This cord gets easily damaged especially when it is constantly coiled or bent and this might be what’s happening in this case.
  • Try using a different wall charger. Make sure it has an output rating of at least 2.0 A.

If the problem still occurs even after performing the steps listed above then  you should bring the phone to a service center and have it  checked.

S7 Edge Moisture Detected Error

Problem: Hello, This past Saturday, my phone started showing “moisture detected in USB port/Charger”, and would not charge. I had not been near any water or had water on it. Although, all year I use it when it rains sometimes, but not in the last two weeks. I decided to wait a bit and charge it again that same day. A blue screen with “Download Target” popped up and remained on the screen till I restarted the phone. After doing this, the phone started charging. It worked for almost half a day and stopped charging again. It repeated the blue screen two more times and worked after every event. Later on, it just charged and stopped charging alternatively without the blue screen. I was not at home when this occurred and had no access to rice. Once I got home, I put it in rice for 2 days and it still isn’t charging. Additionally, I looked into the same card slot at the white paper thing with xxx. Mine is still white, indicating no water damage, based on your other articles.  Do you know of any other things to do to get it working? Please let me know. Thank you.

Solution: It’s very likely that this problem is caused by some software glitch. What you should do first right now since you placed the phone in rice is to make sure that the charging port is free of any debris. Clean the port using a can of compressed air then try charging it again. If it doesn’t charge then try using a different charging cord and wall charger that have been tested to work on another device. In case the phone still does not charge then proceed with the steps listed below.

  • Try starting your phone in Safe Mode. If you are able to access this mode then I suggest that you backup your phone data.
  • Start the phone in recovery mode then wipe it cache partition.
  • Start the phone in recovery mode then do a factory reset. Take note that this reset will erase your phone data.

If your phone still does not charge after performing the steps listed above then you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked as this could already be caused by some hardware issue.

S7 Edge Not Turning On With Battery Charge Left

Problem: so my samsung galaxy s7 edge was at 33% battery i clicked on snapchat and then my phone just turned off on its own since that moment i can’t turn it on even i tried resetting it can you please help me

Solution: What you will want to do in this particular case is to perform a simulated battery pull first. This is done by pressing and holding both the power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. If your phone does not restart after this then perform the steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris that might be stuck in this port is removed.
  • Charge your phone for at least 20 minutes then turn on the phone.
  • If the phone does not charge then try using a different charging cord and wall charger. You should also check if the phone can charge from a computer USB port.

In case the above steps doesn’t fix the problem then you need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

S7 Edge Emergency Calls Only Error

Problem: Samsung Galaxy s7 edge is saying “emergency calls only”. Service will come and go throughout the day. It is a factory broken phone. Have attempted to remove and reinstall sim with no luck to fixing this issue.

Solution: When your phone is showing emergency calls only this means that is not getting any signal from the network. What you will want to do first is to check if the problem is network or SIM card related. Check if another device under the same network as your phone is having the same problem as this could be an indication that the network service is down. You should also try removing the SIM card of your phone and insert it in another device. This way you will be able to check if the SIM is working.

Once you have eliminated the network and the SIM card as a possible cause to this problem then next step is to check the phone. Right now the best thing that you can do is to backup your phone data then do a factory reset to determine if the problem is caused by a software glitch.

In case the issue still occurs after performing the steps listed above then you will have to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Solution: Does your phone have a microSD card installed? If it does then try removing it first then perform a simulated battery pull by pressing and holding both power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds. Your phone should restart after this. If it doesn’t then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Charge the phone for at least 20 minutes then try turning on the phone.
  • If the phone does not turn on then try starting it in recovery mode. From here I recommend that you do a factory reset. Take note that this reset will erase your phone data.

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem you should bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Solution: For this particular issue all you need to do is to clear the cache and data of the My Files app from the application manager.

Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

S7 Edge Emergency Calls Only Error

Problem: hi guys, I have a problem with my Samsung galaxy s7 edge. Have full signal, mobile data works but still got “emergency calls only”. I tried factory reset, hard reset, cache wipe, changed from 4g/3g to only 2G and doesn’t work. I don’t know what I have to do. I tried flash fw with odin but doesn’t works, still write !FAIL

Solution: Have you tried replacing the SIM card of the phone? If the SIM card is faulty then this problem could occur. In case the issue persists even with another SIM card inserted in your phone then you will have to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked as this could already be caused by a faulty hardware component.

S7 Edge Randomly Not Receiving Incoming Calls Or Texts

Problem: My phone has started this issue where it will go all day with no incoming calls or texts and then if I make a phone call, suddenly there will be several texts, missed calls, and voicemails. People tell me later that it just goes directly to voicemail when they call. This has started happening more frequently. The phone is a Verizon phone but I use it on Straight talk. I can’t take the battery out as you mentioned trying. It’s not on Airplane mode and I’ve checked for software updates, etc. It also won’t work on any preferred network besides Global, the service disappears if I try to switch to LTE/CDMA. And the very opening screen (where I have to put my thumbprint for security lock) often says searching for service (at the top left corner) instead of the usual Verizon Wireless, yet the phone still appears to be working. Please let me know if you’ve came across this problem before and what I might be able to do about it (without having to buy a new phone!) Thank you for any help!

Solution: If this is a Verizon phone which you are using on Straight Talk then the issue is caused by the phone not getting a 4G signal. This is the only network band where the phone will work on Straight Talk and if you are in an area where the 4G signal is spotty then this issue will usually occur.

You can however troubleshoot this issue by doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. If the issue persists after the reset then this is most likely a signal related problem.

S7 Edge Not Receiving Text Message From Specific Contacts

Problem: I have a s7 edge. And I have had 2 Sprint numbers that cannot text me. I’m with T-Mobile. At first the 2 numbers could not call or text unless they blocked their number and called private and they would receive my text but couldn’t reply. Well now they are able to call without calling private but still cannot text me. I do not have them blocked, did a soft, then factory reset. Deleted the 2 contacts then re-added. I’ve added them to block list and removed them. I even received a new device had T-Mobile to send a reset from their end. Still cannot receive texts from those 2 contacts. At Wits end. T-Mobile is saying problem is with Sprint however other Sprint contacts I have there is no problem.

Solution: The best thing that you can do right now is to try inserting another SIM card in your phone then check if the issue occurs. If it doesn’t then the problem could be with the SIM card you are using in which case you need to replace this with a new one.

S7 Edge Unable To Receive Network Signal

Problem: My phone is frequently unable to receive a signal from the t-mobile network. I wondered if I have a wrong setting or if the mophie battery backup case could be causing the problem. Or is it more likely the network?

Solution: Try removing the battery case from your phone then check if you are able to receive a signal. You should also toggle the airplane mode of your phone as sometimes this will fix the problem.

In case your phone is still unable to get a network signal then proceed with the steps listed below.

  • Check if the issue occurs when you are in a different area.
  • Turn off the phone then remove the SIM card. Reinsert the SIM card after a few seconds then turn on the phone.
  • Make sure to check the network mode setting of the phone. Set it to LTE/3G/2G (auto connect).
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

If the above steps fails to fix the problem then you should have this checked at a service center.
