Angry Galaxy Note not charging

Hi,

My Galaxy Note - bought on 21st Nov 2011, is not charging anymore.

When I connect it to the wall charger or to the PC USB cable the charging does not work.

As the phone was not charging, I thought it must have hanged and hence removed the battery and then again started charging the phone. Voila, I was able to charge it as required. I then restarted the phone while the wall charger was still connected to the phone and the phone started and was still charging. Hence I thought of removing the charger and then again retry charging, to my horrors the phone was not charging again. No hang up nothing wrong, but the phone will not charge.

Tried connecting the phone to USB and even USB was not detected, thought that it might be a software issue and hence did a factory reset. Again the same, phone does not charge when its swithched on but if its switched off and charger connected, it will charge properly.

Please help.

Thanks,

Hello kailashnj. Sometimes the USB cable/charger becomes damaged. Try using a second one from a friend or at the store where you bought it.

If that does not remedy the charging issue, you might try another USB port on the computer, as they get intermittent at times as well.

Tried 3 different chargers and 2 different usb cables and 3 different usb ports - did not work. I am surprised, how come the phone charges perfectly when its powered off and nothing seems to work when its power on.

It should charge when on or off, of course. I'm wondering if it is charging but the indicator is not showing that due to a glitch that could be cleared with cache and data cleaning in application manager then a reboot.

I would get an external charger (should be quite cheap) and charge the battery with that. If the phone powers up and works then you know the battery is not dead (should last at least an hour). If the phone still cannot charge it after that then you need to take a trip to the service centre to get the phone's charging circuit fixed.

Same goes for you Mrivsona.

Eric Ritchie.

Hey all,

I just got a given a Note, its maybe 1 month old and used only one charge.

Is this the normal chargin screen? Should it make a noise when i plug it in?

Im using stock charger, un modded in any way Note. It makes no noise upon plugging in, and the battery shown on screen has no animation and has not changed in 30 minutes. Long pressing or holding power button for a long time does nothing either, the phone wont turn on.

Is my battery just really dead or is it not charging? Thanks to all for any help.

If the phone is turned off when you plug it in it will make no noise, but the graphic you are showing will appear. The problem is that the bottom of the battery should turn green relatively quickly. It could be that the battery has short circuited and will not charge anymore. Try to see if you can borrow a battery and test.

Eric Ritchie.

I have a new galaxy note 2 (2 weeks old) the phone is sometimes hard to charge, I tried plugging & unplugging the charger many times so that it will charge again. this already happened twice. The first time it happened is when i let it charge overnight & in the morning i was surprised i found out it stopped charging at 70% so I tried to unplug the usb socket & plug it again it still wouldn't charge, I tried many many times until finally it charged. I'm getting worried maybe my device is failing?

If you've tried a different battery and charger and performed a factory reset then I'd say you've ruled out those possibilities. It could be a faulty USB socket best bet is to contact Samsung now.

Hey all,

I don't know about the software side of this, but I can tell you about the hardware. The charge port on these Notes is not soldered onto the main PCB itself, but onto a small board connected to the PCB by flex cable. I (just today, actually) replaced this part for $15.00 on my girlfriend's phone because her phone would not charge. Installing the part is easy if you have any kind of experience with it. Just don't forget to plug the antenna cable back into it when done.

I don't know if this might help, but I had a similar issue and it was due to the fact that the phone was at constant 1400MHz state, meaning that it was consuming more power than it could charge

If the charge indicator comes on but the phone seems to be discharging, I would have a look at the CPU usage by downloading CPU SPY from Google Play.

The connecter on my Note is also broken, so it does not charge unless I press the cable downwards relative hard or I must put something heavy on the end of the cable.
Should take it for warranty.

i have a samsung galaxy note SGH-I717R on the rogers network.

recently i notice that the phone gets almost too hot to touch weather it just charging or sitting in my pocket. when i notice this i pull the battery out and let it cool down.

now my battery discharges in rapid time. even from a full charge i have seen it die in about an hour and a half. i tried a new battery same time.

the charging port still gets great connection as it will charge up to 100%.
i have tried different cables charging through the computer. different wall adapters.

i talked to a local repair shop and they said i need a new "power amp" (basically the core of the phone?)

is this true? is there something else that i can try? a different fix?

Thank you,

Download and install CPU Spy and see if your cpu is working at a high frequency all or most of the time. If it is, then this will be causing the high temperatures and battery problems.

If CPU Spy says your cpu is working at the higher frequency a lot, then it probably is down to an app that needs to be stopped or uninstalled. You need to find out which app is responsible.

Click settings/Battery and see what it says there.

ok i used that cpuspy,
it spends about
10% at 1512mhz
12% at 1242
8% at 810
40% at 384
30% at deep sleep

unused states 192

when i installed this last night it charged with out a problem from my computer (something i usually dont do)

today was the first in manythat my phone lasted this long almost 9hrs, checked it through out the day slightly below avg use for me. maybe problem solved?

so plug back into computer starts charging approx. avg. rate. then stalls at 30-40%, power master calls it a healthy charge which i dont get often.

settings battery
android sys 33%
voicecalls 12%
screen 11%
android OS 6%
go power master 5%
android core apps 5%
voice talk 5%
facebook 5%
media 3%
cell stand by 3%


some how i thought it was too good to be true that it fixed itself and that tonight i was gonna fully charge the old and new battery tonight and be ready for a full day LOL

do those #s look like they should be in that range?

thanks for all the help!

Your Android sys 33% seems very high to me. I suggest you have a rogue app that is causing the high battery drain. Have a look at this thread. How to find a rogue app - battery killer?

For example my current battery stats are 2d 3h 40m 47s on battery.

Screen 27%
Cell standby 22%
Phone idle 14%
Android OS 10%
Android system 9%
Dolphin Browser 5%
Android Weather 3%
Voice calls 3%
Wi-Fi 3%
Android Core Apps 2%

Click settings/Developer Options and make sure nothing is ticked. Make sure the Window animation scale is set to 0.5x and the Transition animation scale is set to 0.5x. Set the Background process limit to Standard limit.

Please let me know if any of the developer options were either ticked or set differently to what I described.

Finally, click Applications, then Task manager/Ram, let me know how much Ram is in use, then click Clear memory and let me know what it says after clearing the Ram.

Please let me know if any of the above has helped at all.

ok so i managed to leave this morning with 84% after poor charging. it drained rapidly today, so i used it less. home now its 2% on the charger. just installed battery mix. it is currently charging.... for now normaly. with minimal usage.

cpu spy today says
1512mhz for 6%
1242 for 9%
810 for 6%
384 for 52%
deep sleep for 20%

total time 24:16:37

battery
scrren 21%
vocie calls 12%
android core apps 11%
android OS 10%
fafcebook7%
voice talk 6%
cell standby 4%
current caller id 4%
phone ide 4%
media server 4%


should i be doing battery pulls often? i usually do every 48 hours. as my swiftkey would stop working. i haven't added any recent apps, i haven't even really been using my phone like i would occasionally. so im a little stumped to what it could be. the brightness is always set 0% 15 second blackout

thanks for the ongoing help!

I never do a battery pull at all, so unless there's a very good reason I wouldn't recommend it. I do however tend to do a restart once a day.

Your ram usage is high compared to mine which hovers around the 450MB mark. I can only think that either you have an app that's consuming your battery or you have a lot of apps running in the background.

Take a look at the link below to see what's safe to disable.

The way you disable an app is by clicking settings/applications then the all tab then click on the app you want to disable and click the disable button.

it seems to take a lil longer for the full charge but it was 100% when i left the house this morning. 5% by 7pm thats approx 11 hours. much better performance than what i have seen lately.

this morning i deleted my google calander widget. maybe it made the difference, not sure.

but i ahve noticed that my cpu doesn't run in the high ranges like it has since i started using cpu spy. i guess well see what tomorrow brings i guess.

My SG Note started charging intermittently then not at all unless i held the charger in or leant it up against the wall. i assumed the charger was on it's way out so i used a different one which fixed the problem temporarily until this happened again. i have 3 chargers that now dont charge my phone and a USB connector which doesnt work at all now.

does this sound like my phone's charging port has a problem or that i just have rubbish chargers? my mum and brother also have samsungs that have this problem with the chargers

This happens to my phone every few months. Luckily I have caught it before it completely died. It always happen to me when I am using the phone as the phone is plugged in and charging so I have no idea the battery is steadily draining until I see the percentage is not at 100% but 48% because the battery indicator give the appearance that the phone is charging . What works for me every time is to immediately find the charger that came with the phone or another similar phone (never use because its too short but none of the after market chargers with longer cords have worked) which immediately start charging. So this charges my phone within 30 minutes.

I think it is probable that people posting here are suffering from a variety of problems, but one problem/solution I have not seen discussed is the "USB charging bug". This is a bug which prevents the phone going to sleep if it is removed from charging while the screen is off. The only solution I know of is to wake and unlock the phone before removing the charger. I don't know if this is a hardware issue or software, but I've seen it on my Note with different ROMs over a 16 month period of ownership.

It is now my standard practice to wake and unlock the phone before removing the charger. It doesn't matter whether I'm charging from mains or in the car. I always wake the phone before disconnecting the charge lead. Then I can manually turn the phone off immediately and all is well. If I do that then I do not have problems. Recently I chose on purpose not to follow that routine on the new JB ROM and sure enough the bug revealed itself. So the bug is still not fixed with the latest ROM.

Should take it for warranty.
I have this problem but it's the cable, not the phone. Any other cable works fine, but I am persevering because the cable that is faulty is an extra long one so I can charge my phone on the bedside table which is not close to the wall socket. I just have to prop the cable up slightly and charging works. I will get a new cable sooner or later.

have gone through this thread....

i have a similar problem. the phone never charges above 27% even after i have left it plugged in for 10hrs straight....

battery isnt faulty, worked good my friends phone. cable not a problem. i guess something is causing the battery not to charge.

also, after 27% it reaches 1% within 10mins (no wifi,no bluetooth, no sync...just unplugged and not even touched it once!!)

Try using this app to reset your battery stats - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nema.batterycalibration. Then run down your phone to flat and charge fully again. It may not work, but it's worth a try.

What happens at 1% ajaynatu?

My charge / daily usage is such that the battery never gets very low. However, when I have deliberately run it low to re-calibrate the battery meter I seem to recall all manner of notifications being given to re-charge etc. Do you get those notifications or does the phone just switch off?

Are you using the official charger or some third party charger?

Have you tried charging with the phone turned off completely - not just sleeping, but totally off?

If it's turned off completely then nothing can be running in the background and it has to charge - unless there is something seriously wrong with your phone, charger or battery.

One more app to try to see what is going on behind the scenes when charging and discharging your phone....

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ccc71.bmw

I installed it on my phone yesterday evening as I just bought a new "genuine" Samsung charger from eBay and wanted to see what sort of charging current it would deliver. Here are plots showing the battery voltage and charge/discharge current as I fully drained the battery to 0% before bedtime (phone shut itself off) and then put the phone on charge overnight. You will note the sawtooth charge profile for a few hours once the phone was full. Then the charge drops during today as I use the phone. Each division along the horizontal scale represents one hour, with the thick vertical line in the mniddle indicating midnight last night.

hi,
i used to charge the phone when its switched off.. but tht is an interim method and not the final solution.

tried charging the phone by just the usb cable and it gets charged to 100% !!!
however still takes 8-9 hrs to get fully charged and still has tendency to remain SUPER_HOT

Please try charging with the authentic, original Samsung mains charger and supplied lead, no fakes, no substitutes, no laptop/PC - just the original charging equipment.

For the sake of experimentation at least, DO NOT CHARGE FROM A PC/LAPTOP. I've seen my own Note actually lose charge, and get hot, when charging from my laptop. If I need to connect it for some reason then I do so, but I do not expect the charge to increase and I always disconnect as soon as I am done and then check for the charging bug - manifested by out of control CPU speed, the phone getting hot and the charge level plunging.

I then restarted the phone while the wall charger was still connected to the phone and the phone started and was still charging. Hence I thought of removing the charger and then again retry charging, to my horrors the phone was not charging again. No hang up nothing wrong, but the phone will not charge.

Tried connecting the phone to USB and even USB was not detected, thought that it might be a software issue and hence did a factory reset. Again the same, phone does not charge when its swithched on but if its switched off and charger connected, it will charge properly.

Please help.

Thanks,
Kailash
I had this same problem. Dont worry though, its not your charger as many people here suggest. Its actually the phone charging slot. looking at mine, ive managed to twist it somehow, so when i charge it, i have to rest something heavy on the USB port going into the phone. Its slowed down charging i think and i cant really use the phone when its charging like that, but its how im coping until an external battery pack charger comes through.
I have been told that i can claim warranty on the phone through Samsung but because its a repair, its gonna take a few days which i just dont have. Anyway: Conclude: Put something heavy on the usb slot going into the phone to make the phone charge
I wish you all the best in using your phone from here on in.

Default hardware problem disables usb port 9 on galaxy note 2

Dear Kailash,
Lots of wrong answers....
Here is one for you. You were probably charging your note in a car with a non original usb cable. Or it was almost out of battery juice and you used a non original cheap charging cable. The thing is there is a small capacitor like component on the mother board that controls the connection of the usb inlet for charging and also for connection to pc. This component is high voltage sensitive and is known to burn on a voltage surge or spike. It is difficult to find an exact replacement that fits the size and usually they get it when another note is broken. No documentation from Samsung on that part... . If you find a source for these capacitors, I will be happy if you get one for me. I will refund the part and shipment. I saw two dead notes 2 in the local repair shop. A battery charger and extra batteries will probably cost you about 60$.
Regards,
Yoram

You sir are correct! I too have to apply downward pressure to the usb input (coffee cup) to get a connection. This was driving me crazy too. I have three different chargers. 1. OEM charger 2. Docking station w/extra battery charger & 3. Car charger. All chargers doing nothing until I applied pressure to the input slot of the phone. This is BS. I just got this phone (NEW) just over a year now. But, I found a workaround for now.

You USB port is done. It needs to be changed out. Luckily it's easy to do and "cheap".

Same thing with my Note! I ordered a new port and changed it(pretty easy) but the phone is doing the same thing with the new one... Im suspecting the speaker assembly thats on top of the charging port.
