Questions and Answers

I have a Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505) that won't turn on or charge?

I received this phone recently that it would originally boot to the Samsung logo then turn off, I figured that this would be a software issue. I did the normal procedure and attempted to boot the phone into recovery mode to do a factory reset. This failed. After this, the phone would not boot to the Samsung logo anymore, only vibrate. I then cleaned the charging port with compressed air and a small plastic toothpick. Still no luck. I replaced the battery, no luck, won't charge. I've figured, maybe I damaged the charging port? I changed the charging port and it still won't charge. What could be wrong with the phone?. I have tried: Replaced battery and replaced charging port. (full ribbon set). I think it was caused by: No idea.

S4 completely dead, any suggestions?

Phone won't charge, won't boot up, tried it with 3 different batteries, changed the charging port as well, but no luck. Any suggestions? or any chance it could be the digitizer?. I have tried: Can't even boot up the phone to soft resets are out of the question.

as for hardware, I've replaced the charging port with no luck. I think it was caused by: The phone had overheated quite a few times, not sure if that was the root of the problem as it had been working perfectly fine. random shut off a few times, stuck in reboot then did not show any signs of life.

Why won't my Samsung G4 turn on or take charge?

I have tried all the suggestions I've found online. My phone was working fine. I made a 4 hour round trip in a rental car, as my phone was plugged into the car's USB port to charge. I was using my voice text messenger on Facebook for a while which always drains it quick. Returned home, plugged it in and saw the green charge symbol at 0 percent unloaded car came back 2-3 minutes later held the power button felt it vibrate, and nothing since, no power, no charge, nothing. I do have two batteries that I switch between when needed, it was very hot when I left the car, but when it did cool down not since has it been hot just warm while appearing to not charge!. I have tried: All 3 power, volume and home button at once, battery out and in, battery out hold power button back in, charge for minimum 10 minutes. I think it was caused by: I don't know. I suspect rental car's USB port? but that doesn't make sense to me, I was using the cars Bluetooth system. Have since turned it off and deleted my phone's info from cars memory

My S4 mini cut off and now does not come on or charge. What should I do? I have tried: I took the battery out for about 15 minutes. Held the power button down, took the SD card out, put the battery back in to see if it would charge, but it didn't. I think it was caused by: I'm not too sure.
