This guide will help you fix your Samsung Galaxy S5’s inability or inability to charge. Also, I experienced slow charging or no charge.
Learn how to charge your Galaxy S5
Avoid charging your S5 with water or in extreme heat and humidity. It is a bad idea to charge your S5 overnight if your battery is only good for 2-3 hours. It can cause your S5 to explode and even be damaged. Third-party chargers can cause damage or even make your phone look old.
Two possible ways to fix a Samsung Galaxy S5 with no charging are
Use the right S5 charger
It is important that you only use the Samsung charger with the S5.
Check that your charger charges at the right frequency. If it doesn’t, an adapter charger may not be able deliver the required power. A charger designed for smartphones might not provide the same power as one that supports Bluetooth headphones.
Install a new wall socket
You can check that your charger is working correctly by switching the wall socket.
A wall socket charges faster than a laptop or a PC. It is because USB ports on laptops don’t have much power. Fast chargers can provide up to five times the power. This can lead to faster charging.
Charge your Galaxy S5 using USB/PC
The S5 can also be connected to a USB port on a computer or laptop.
S5 Charging port available.
If you have many things in your Galaxy S5’s charging port, it can become clogged. If you don’t have any canned air, you can blow (but not spitting!) into the charging port.
Galaxy S5 DIY USB port fix
The Galaxy S5’s hardware can be repaired by yourself. This is usually a simple and quick fix. It could be a manufacturing defect or because your cable was being used constantly.
- Remove the battery if possible and use something small, such as a toothpick, to “lever up the USB port” on the Galaxy S5.
- Do this slowly and carefully. If necessary, you can then re-insert your battery and plug it in again.
Rollback your S5 or update the OS
Software updates and new Android versions can drain battery life, especially if you have an older device. If your smartphone is two years old, it may not be able to keep up with other devices. In this case, you can roll back to an older Android version. This comes with security risks. You should always keep your smartphone up-to-date with the most recent software. There are few security issues with older versions of Android, but it is worth noting. The Moto 360 smartwatch shows that a software update can sometimes increase your device’s battery life. Go to your settings and check for an update if your Android version is out of date.
You can turn off your S5
If you use battery-intensive features and apps while charging your device, your battery life may be reduced.
