Questions and Answers

Is there a way to check the status of the battery when phone is off?

I can't seem to figure out how to check the status of the battery during charging when the phone is off. On my old Samsung Galaxy Fascinate, all I had to do when the phone was off was to "bump" the on/off switch, and a large picture of the battery would appear showing the amount that the battery was charged at the moment in green.

Yes, while your device is off on your Samsung Galaxy Note3 you will simply need to plug the device up to the charger in order to have the Battery picture displayed. More than likely if you are not seeing this icon it means that your device is not charging with the charger you are currently using. Change your charger to see if the battery icon displays on your device.

How can I know if my Galaxy Note3 is charging?

Hi, I have a Galaxy Note3 that has a bad LCD. Nothing comes up on the screen. But the phone doesn't make any sounds or anything so I want to figure out a way to test if the phone is still functioning in order to get the screen replaced. If it's not working, I don't want to spend any money on it.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If your phone isn't making any noises or lighting up its LED notification light when you plug it in to charge, then more than just the LCD is broken. You'll need to take it into a technician to get it fixed.

Is there a simple way to tell if my battery is bad or the phone? I plug my charger to the phone but the icon just stays green at the bottom and 0% showing?

I don't want to purchase a new battery if my phone is the issue.

The most simple way is to look at the battery and see if it is flat (it should be levelled and flat), place your battery into another phone (in a store, for example), or just carry your phone to a Samsung service center to see if they can quickly test it.

The less common way is either using different USB chargers and USB ports and outlets, using a voltmeter to check the remaining battery charge, or charging a battery with a Spare Battery Charger and seeing if it works.
