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 normal procedure and attempted to boot the phone in to 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 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.

Samsung S4 Won't Charge. Can you help?

Hi Daniel, my Samsung S4 won't charge. I got a new battery this morning and the phone seemed to be working and even charging, however, the phone ran out of battery later in the day and now won't charge at all. The charging light doesn't even appear. The only response I get is when I take out the battery and put it back in, which causes the phone to briefly show the Samsung Galaxy S4 logo.. I have tried: All the steps here: http://thedroidguy.com/2014/11/fix-samsung-galaxy-s4-wont-turn-troubleshooting-guide-99921

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 cars 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

T-Mobile S4 won't power up or charge?

Happened when battery went dead and I tried to turn it on a few times before it wouldn't even buzz no more, then went to charge it and nothing happens, only if the phone has been laying around an hour or so or if you remove the battery and reinsert it when plugging in the power cord and you will feel a buzz then see "battery power meter circling display" then the display goes black & nothing. If you remove the battery and reinsert it. It will start up on it's own with a buzz and display. I have tried: Volume down when it tries to turn on after reinserting battery gets to screen say press volume up to continue or volume down to restart phone. Tried both nothing happens just goes black even if you do nothing. I think it was caused by: Running the battery so far dead it shut down improperly?
