SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 - NO POWER, BATTERY, CHARGING AND CHARGER ISSUES alltabshighlighted.jpg

No power, battery, charging and charger issues

This guide contains troubleshooting steps and advice to help resolve issues you may experience when attempting to charge the handset.
After performing each step, please test to see if the issue is resolved.
Symptoms:
  • Battery not charging
  • Battery is not lasting long
  • Phone won't charge
  • Charging error
  • Failure to charge
  • Display remains black or blank
  • No power
  • Boot failure
  • Overheating
Troubleshooting Questions
  • Are you using the correct equipment?Make sure you are using an approved Samsung wall charger and USB charging cable. Other brands of charging accessories may have different voltage parameters and could cause charging issues when used with Samsung devices.
  • Have you charged your phone for longer than 30min? Leave your phone plugged in to the charger for about 30min without powering on. In some cases, it may take slightly longer for your phone to charge.
  • Is the battery icon displayed on the screen when charging? After charging your phone for a little while you should get a battery charging icon appear on the screen which will indicate that your battery is charging properly.
    If the charging icon appears, leave your phone for a little longer before you try to switch your phone on.
    If however, the screen is blank and nothing is displayed, follow the below troubleshooting steps.
  • Is the charging cable plugged into a USB port? Some charging cables can disconnect from the wall outlet adapter and plug directly into a USB port. However, when plugged into a USB port, the charging process is much slower due to the limited power output of USB ports. Instead, plug the device directly into a wall outlet to speed up the charging process.
  • Is the outlet faulty? Try a different outlet or check for a switch connected to the outlet. If possible, try powering a different device on the same outlet.
  • Does another USB cable, or wall charger work? Charging issues can occur if either the battery or charging cable is damaged. Verify that the charging contacts are clean. If necessary, clean the contacts using a cotton swab and rubbing on isopropyl alcohol.
    If possible, test the charging cable by plugging it into another device and seeing if the device charges. Alternatively, try charging the device with a different cable. This may mean changing out the cable or the adapter on two-piece chargers.
    If charging through a car charging kit, ensure that the car engine is running, and if possible try to charge other devices using other cables, through the same car kit. If none will charge, then it is likely there is a fault with the car charging kit. It is recommended to continue to cross-test devices, cables, and car kits until the problem device can be identified.
    If the device charges when using a different USB cable or wall charger, the issue most likely lies with the charging accessory. In this case, follow the approved charger repair / replacement process.
    Also, if the charger is connected via an extension or other multi-socket adapter, remove this and plug the charger directly into the wall-mounted socket. This will eliminate the possibility of a fault with the adapter.
    If you are still unable to charge your device, continue to the next step.
  • Has the phone experienced any shock or exposure to water? Accidental physical shock to a handset can sometimes cause problems to arise with battery or charger, as these components contain delicate parts, particularly. Damage can occur either to the component itself, or to the component's connection to the motherboard.
    Water exposure can also lead to damage of these components, however due to the slow way in which this type of damage can manifest itself, the cause may not always be readily obvious.
    With any physical damage of this nature, the only recourse is to contact the device manufacturer, and follow their approved repair or replacement process.

P5113 not charging properly


There are a couple of common problems that can cause bad charging:
  1. Bad charging cable - try a new cable
  2. Bad charger - try a new charger, or try plugging it into a PC USB port overnight with the PC turned on
  3. Charger is not the right charger for your tablet - Samsung devices are known for being picky about what charger you use. If you don't use the original charger that came with the device, or a Samsung charger made for your specific tablet, you will have trouble.
  4. A bad/broken charging port on the tablet - this is not something you can fix yourself. You would likely have to return it to Samsung for repair, or find a local repair shop.

Lets be honest no tablet is perfect. But the HDX Kindle has terrible battery


Are you using the charger that came with your device? Other chargers cause a lot of problems.

Is not coming on when plugging in to car, not


Hello there,
The problem with the device is the battery is dead and the charger is not charging it. that is why it is not turning on and, that also is the reason the reset button is not working.
The causes of this problem could be either, the battery is bad, the charger could be bad or the connection port on the device might have gone bad.
You need to run a check on all of these components to be sure of where the problem is from and how to solve the problem.
To run a test on the battery, try to insert the battery into another device and try to charge to see if will get charged. Leave it for a while as the battery is drained and need to be charged for a while before it holds a charge. If it charges, then the battery is okay, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Now test the charger. by connecting the charger to some other device to see if the charger will charge the device, if it does not charge the device, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced. But if it works, then it means the problem is not from the charger.
Finally, test the connection port by trying to use another battery and charger on the device, if it does not charge, then it means the connection port on the gps is bad and need to be replaced.
Hope this information was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Will not turn on


If your device is not having power, there are 3 factors to be checked. The battery, the charger and the device itself. Run a test on the three factors and you will be able to tell which has the fault and how to solve it.

Insert the battery in another device, then you try to charge it for some time, lets say about 2 hours, then you try to power the device on to see if it will power it on, if it powers it on, then it means your battery is alright. Put it back in the gps device and power it on.

Then you connect you charger to another device to see if it will charge. If it charges it, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced with a new one, then you connect the new charger to your device to see if it will charge it and power it on, if it charges and powers it on, then that solves the problem, but if it does not, then you need to test the device itself.

Then you further go ahead to test the device by connecting it to a computer and its normal charger, then it means there is a problem with the connection port of the device is bad or there is an internal problem somewhere.

Hope this helped. Thank you for using fixya

Then you connect you charger to another device to see if it will charge. If it charges it, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced with a new one, then you connect the new charger to your device to see if it will charge it and power it on, if it charges and powers it on, then that solves the problem, but if it does not, then you need to test the device itself.

My Tomtom will not turn on even if it is on the charger.


If your tom tom does not seem to charge, then there seem to be a problem somewhere in the unit. You need to run a check on the battery, the charger and the device itself.

First test the charger by trying to use it on another device, if it charges the device, then it is working perfectly fine, but if it does not, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replace with a new one.

Test the battery also, by inserting it into another device, plug it with a well tested charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge. If it does turn on, then it means your battery is intact, but if it does not, then it means the battery is dead and cannot hold a charge. And the solution to that is for you to replace the battery.

Test the device by inserting a well tested battery in it, and connecting a well tested charger on to it also, if it does not charge, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or something with the device.

After carrying out these tests, you will be able to detect the problem and how to solve it.

I hope this information was helpful to you.

Tom tom wont switch on. tried charging it. still not coming on.


Good day sir/madam There are most likely 2 sources of such problems, the battery or the charger. Test the battery on another device, but before you turn it on, charge it for about 2 hours on the device before powering on, if it turns on, then the battery is okay, but if it does not turn on the other device,then you have to replace the battery.
Test the charger on another device to see if it will charge it, if it charges, then the charger is okay, but if it does not, then the charger is bad and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Other components to test is the charging port, to test the charging port, try a well tested charger and battery on the nuvi, if it does not seem to charge, then the charging port is bad and need to be replaced.
By the time you carry out these activities, you would have been able to detect the exact problem and solve it at the same time.
Hope this helps.
