Galaxy Note not chargingSupport

    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.

    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.

    Had a discussion with the customer support guy today from Samsung and he has asked me to get the phone to the nearest service centre for through examination.

Instead of percentage increasing, my battery keep dropping rapidly the moment i charge.

    I have change to new battery , multiple of chargers, multiple of USB cable it jus doesnt help. I am very very frustrated as i do not know wat is going on with my phone.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    I also have a samsung galalaxy note gt n7000.
    my phone at first didnt charge, I took the battery out and reseted several times until it charged again.
    but my phone wont turn off NEVER.
    when i hit power off it reestars, my phone wont charge turned off.
    Sometimes when its turned ON the battery icon keeps blinking and when I unplug it the lightning comes and goes like if I was plugling and unpluging the phone.
    sometimes it turns off by it self or reestarts while in my pocket.
    please help me.

    I tried a factory reset or hard reset and lost all my info and still have the same issue.
    It doesnt sink with samsung kies or my PC.
    and what it does since yesterday is that when i plug it it does nothing no sound no nothing but charges slowly.
    I tried a different charger and battery and different PCs and still nothing.
    never did anything weird to it like rooting or never messed up with any of the settings.:(:(:(:confused::confused::confused:

    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,
