    The last time I used my note 5 the battery was getting real hot and I couldn’t turn it off , I had to wait til battery drained and it shut off but after that I couldn’t get it to come back on or anything . Wouldn’t show it was charging nothing...got it out that her day and plugged it in to charge it to see what it was doing. Nothing at first then checked later and blue light was on and just black screen. Tried turning off and on but couldn’t tell really what was happening cuz it still had just black screen, I did hear just a faint and short sound , sounded like the tone that comes on when you are waiting for your phone to come up after you turn it on, but the screen was still black and blue light was still on but no change in the screen or light , screen still black and blue light still on. I was going to get a new battery to replace in it, do you think that would fix it or is there something else wrong with it? Phone has no service and hasn’t for about 2yrs before it quit , I just want to be able to use it without service or with just WiFi or even just to get info off of it .....can anybody help me

    My device is a Note 4 and I have replaced the battery several times over the years. I'm currently using a PowerBear 7,500mAh extended battery.
    It would be a roll of the dice, so to speak, if replacing the battery will solve also issues with your N5. If it were my device, I'd be willing to give it a try.
    I would not buy an OEM battery because most of them are fake and the authentic once have degraded as Lithium-ion has a limited shelf-life.

    If the phone has been sitting idle and untouched for two years, it's not surprising if the battery has failed. It's not just usage that wears a smartphone battery, but not getting a charge at least every few months will decrease it's ability to hold a charge too.
    The ifixit site has a step-by-step guide on replacing a Note 5 battery:

    I disagree that getting an OEM battery is something to avoid. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and generally buying the same components that the original manufacturer used is the safest option as far as reliability and assured compatibility. It's the third-party brands that you need to be more vigilant about. You'll often save money but it's important to look into the history or background when you buy third-party stuff.

    Being that Samsung hasn't manufactured OEM batterys fro the Note 5 form many years, the only one left have remained on the self for years. Its a known fact that lithiom-ion batterys degrade over time and I quote

    "If it has been sitting on a shelf in the store for a year, it won't last very long. Manufacturing dates are important."

    Not to mention many member of XDA will not agree with you when it comes to older oem battery replacement.

    The main problem is finding a good aftermarket battery and I would also do my research before placing an order.

    Parts that have the OEM label are only occasionally made by the manufacturer, at least when it involves Android phones. Most components, including batteries, are made by other companies in accordance with the manufacturers specifications. Apple tends to make a lot more of its parts for iPhones, or with more strict guidelines when if involves other companies, but no smartphone manufacturer makes 100% of any phone.
    The OEM label just means it's been made following the quality control standards set by the phone manufacturer.

    no , I’m sorry you read it wrong , the phone hasn’t been idle for 2 yrs. , it hasn’t had service for 2 yrs. before it quit on me...I was still using it for games camera and stuff I had stored on it and when I was around WiFi....But it has been put up since July last yr when I couldn’t turn it off and battery drained ....it will be a yr in July that it has sat idle. Before it quit I was having issue with it getting hot but I would always just turn it off and let it cool before I used it or charged it again. When it quit July of last yr that was the first and only time it got so hot ( hotter than times before) and that I couldn’t turn it off....I’m sorry , I’m trying to explain the best I can what was going on with it , sorry if I am confusing...thank you for your time and help

    I have tried everything from holding down just the power button to holding the power button and volume up button, power button and volume down button, power button volume up and home, power button volume down and home, power button and home button....when I do all that that is when I hear the sound come from it but it is not very loud and it is not a very long sound, and I believe it is when I used power button and volume up , I think anyway, I don’t remember what combo it was , it won’t make sound every time just every once in a while I can hear some kind of sound (tone) come from it but screen stays black and blue light stays on , and if I remember correctly the blue light is like pulsating, it doesn’t blink ( doesn’t go off and on ) The light stays on , it just gets bright then not so bright and continuous like that, it pulsates.
