Default S5 won't charge

My phone has suddenly stopped charging with charger plugged in. When the phone is plugged inyo charger, the battery icon at the top right hand corner doesn't show charging. I have a spare battery and pack and the charger is charging fine. I have tried everything including taking the battery out etc. Anyone know what's wrong?

You may want to try this. I'm pretty sure you have to be rooted, you did not mention if you were or not.

I worked out why it didn't work. I mistakenly used my Ipad adapter instead of samsung adapter. I only realised when I pulled out the Samsung charger from my bag. It's all good now.

Default Similar issue

I know your issue is solved, however, I decided to post here because it's such a similar issue that I didn't want to start a new thread.

For about 3 - 4 months I had no issue with my new S5, then one night after plugging it in to my wall charger, it would NOT accept the charge. No matter what I did, it would not beep nor display the charging icon. I even turned it off, checked the pins, changed wall sockets, nothing worked. As a last resort, I plugged it into my PC and right away, beep, charging.

Back to the wall charger, nothing! - Back to the usb/PC, beep, charging.

After one full charge on the PC, I can go back to the wall charger for a few charges then the same thing happens and I have to charge by PC again. I haven't narrowed down the specifics yet but it seems to be, for every half dozen or so wall charges, I need one Pc charge. Quite the inconvenience as I need the phone by my bedside.

If anyone else has this issue let me know, I'd like to know why this is needed! Such an odd thing.

Thanks

I am having the same issue, My phone is 1 week old. I put it on the charger went back an hour later and dead. Have it plugged up to my PC as suggested and still nothing. Anymore suggestions. I just got this one I broke my first one. I don't want to have to go thru insurance again to get another new one.
