Question about Samsung GALAXY S4

1 Answer

When I plug in my Samsung Galaxy S4 to charge it flashes the grey battery meter sign with a circle in the middle of it like its loading. The battery sign stays on for about 20 seconds, then it vibrates, screen goes black and repeats. I have replaced the battery (not with a ripoff, actual Samsung battery) and replaced the charger port on the phone, but nothing has changed. Any suggestions?

I suggest buy a new phone, if you spent this much money on it and still doesn't work why keep it? You can probably ask to have your data sent to the new phone I hope i helped you :D

SOURCE: samsung omnia problem trying to charge battery

It looks like battery is damaged... When plugged in to charger phone shouldn't power on. Try put it on charger when on and see if charging icon appear. (top right corner-battery status icon should change -insted of battery to charging.) Battery is fully charged after cca 4 hours, 80% after 2 hours.
