Charging problems on samsung galaxy s6

Recommended Posts

Hi any techy folk out there - my dad bought a galaxy 6 phone in august (NOT EDGE - just ordinary) , he couldn't use it so he gave it me , now when I charge it it gets stuck on anything between 74 - 80% charge & won't fully charge if I leave it on all day , I have cleared cache , had a flash reset at Samsung place on commercial st & done a full factory reset myself , downloaded app called "battery repair" yet it still won't charge , any ideas ?

it seemed to happen suddenly rather than over a period of time (the phone is only about 5 mths old)

Is it the charger that came with it? I've seen them have problems with lower amperage chargers before.

Likely the battery, treating the battery wrongly (letting it fully discharge before recharging, and keeping it on charge over night / topping it up when it's at 80/90% etc)

 

Swap out the battery (Samsung shop should be able to test if it is any way) and shouldn't be a problem

Swapping the battery is a major job and not for the faint hearted, you will end up doing more damage to the phone. If it's only a few months old take it to the Samsung shop on Commercial Street as it will be under warranty.

Ah yes, it's an S6, (was distracted while reading/replying)

 

 

As said above :@)

Take it to the samsung shop, and they'll replace it for you :)
