It is not charging. I tried original wire and another wire

It could be one of any different things why it is not charging..

1. is the battery deformed? you may have over-charged the battery and now it won't charge. How to check: take off the battery back and the battery, feel the battery to see if you feel a bulge.

you can also try spinning the flat side of the battery on a flat smooth surface. if it spins fast it may be time to get a new battery.

2. is there lint or some pants pocket debris or dirt inside the charging port on the bottom of the phone? use something non metal that won't break inside, it needs to be thin enough to move around and poke around the bottom, not interfering with the chip that sticks out.

before you do that.. turn off the phone and take out the battery just in case. you don't want to short the charging port, so why risk it.

you can use a thin side wooden tooth pick (not the thick rounded ones, they won't fit), or you can use an unused plastic brush tooth pick that's available at most stores like Walgreens, CVS, Safeway, etc.. not-charging-tried-original-wire-c42sdu52tip34gjoftdmfcql-4-0.png

3. If nothing comes out, try using a different wall charger adapter that works for your Samsung device. Many cell phones use a 3volt charger that won't work with Samsung smartphones because non-Note Galaxy phones need a 5volt charger. Your Note 4 phone needs a more powerful charging adapter that can draw even more energy to the device. The others will just trickle charge it or may not work at all. Also, the cord itself. You can't just use any micro USB charging cable. You need to use one that can push enough electricity to your device. So it has to be a Samsung smartphone compatible one. If you have ruled this out..

4. Is the wall outlet bad? Try a different wall outlet. Example: at the airport we tried all the wall outlets in the same area, none of those charged the device. We thought it could be the charging cable or the adapter that was dead. Then we went to another area in the airport and tried again. This time we were charging the phone fine. Cable and charging adapter were apparently working great.

5. If the battery is good, but it is a non original manufacturer's battery, does it still have all parts of the battery intact? On many non-OEM batteries there is a plastic foot glued to it so that the battery fits inside the compartment snugly. If this has fallen off and you have a gap in between the battery and battery compartment, whereas the battery can shift inside.. if so, the phone can't charge the battery correctly because the battery is not set tightly inside the phone. If this is the case, slide a folded piece of paper or something in between the bottom of the battery and the battery compartment to make it a tighter fit. Then try charging it.

6. If that's not it.. what happens when you try jiggling the charging cable connected to the phone.. try angling the cable head to the left or right.. does it only charge when in a specific position? it could be the charging cable or the charging port that needs fixing..

7. If that was not the case, and everything you've tried doesn't work, it could just be the charging port on the phone is bad. Bring it to your local cellular repair shop. It should cost around $35 to $50 to fix.

Battery discharges fast

Hi, first of all you should check your battery if is swell, you do that by taking it out of the phone and put on the table and try to see if it spins, if she spins that means that you have a bad battery, for more details check this video link:
If that doesn't help you then you should go with your phone to a GSM Service center cause there might be a hardware problem with you phone.
Hope this help!

The slide mechanism on the top (or left) side is coming apart. do i need to remove the board to fix it? i am assuming it has lost a screw but am not sure that is the problem......any suggestions?

Slides on phones are a pain to fix, can be something small or something big. I would first recommend having a cell phone repair service take a look before opening it up. Sliders are real touchy when being taken apart and being put back together.

How to you get a blower wheel off without removing the back panel which appears to be difficult? Blower wheel turns but makes squeaking noise and eventually smell something burning. can access easily...

The noise is probably the drum front bearing. Pop the top (normally held in place by spring clips) Remove the front panel. The drum will fall to the floor at this point. Take pics with your cell phone or similar. Be mindful of the wires connecting the door switch to the main body.

You don't say what kind of drier this is so these are general comments.

Remove the belt. Using care, turn the machine on and see if the noise is still present.

You may want to replace the front bearing (normally made of felt) and the belt. Definitely clean the lint from the inside and of course, collect the money you will find inside.
