S5 won't turn on and no lights for charging etc?

Woke up this morning and responded to a few WhatsApp messages, then my phone started restarting itself every 5 seconds or so, I took the battery out and left it for like 30 minutes put battery back in and turned it on, then it was restarting every 1 minute or so I turned it off, and now it won't turn back on, no charging light or anything?

This is usually a sure sign that the battery on your phone needs to be replaced. However, before you take it into your dealer for repairs, you can try one more thing which is to try recharging the phone, using a Samsung brand cable by plugging a USB connector into the port of your phone and into the port of a computer or charger. Do not plug it into a USP port in a charger that is in turn plugged into a wall. This might correct the battery if it is somehow overcharged, but it is more likely that is on its way to being a dead battery. You can test this by inserting a battery from another Samsung Galaxy s% and see if you encounter the same issue.

My Galaxy S5 won't turn on with a fully charged battery?

My wife and I have the same phone, her charger port doesn't work, so my phone is constantly on the charger. The other day my phone started to get hot and apparently overheated tonight for excessive battery charging. Now my phone won't turn on at all, I've gone through all the motions by holding down the power, volume up and down, and home keys for 15 seconds, I've plugged my phone into my computer, took the battery out and proceeded to do the above steps. How do I get my phone working again?. I have tried: Everything I explained earlier. I think it was caused by: Constantly being on a charger

This happens to phones that have faulty motherboards. The first symptom is, after working well for some time, becoming hot for no apparent reason. Then, the charge starts to drop too fast. If you connect it to a charger, it still keeps on discharging and overheating. Then, it will not turn on. The best solution is to locate and visit the nearest Samsung service center and let them fix the device for you. To locate the nearest Samsung service center, go to http://www.samsung.com/. Then, click "Support", "Mobile Phone", and "Smart Phone". Then, click "Find Service Center".

Phone switched itself off and won't turn on again?

Hi my phone was working fine a few hours ago and I was reading a text message, when a message popped up that the play store stopped working and then it switched itself off and I have not been able to start it again. The battery was at 70%. I have it connected to my computer via USB, but nothing is happening. I have taken out the battery several times too and nothing.

How can I turn off my S5, when my touchscreen has stopped working?

I've owned the Galaxy S5 for over a year, and the screen just stopped responding to touch at all. It's the first time it ever did something like this. Troubleshooting (and common sense) says to turn it off and then back on. Well that's nice, but I can't, since it asks for confirmation (device options screen) by touch! Is there a way to get around that?

Yes, there is! You can either drain the battery by waiting or remove the back cover and take out the battery as shown in this tutorial. Take the battery out for two minutes to let the smartphone soft-reset itself. Place it back and boot the smartphone up. If that did not help, resort to hard-resetting your S5.

If the advice did not help you to make the touch screen functional again, then you will need to replace it at a service center, preferably a Samsung one.

S5 will not turn on using all recommended reboot methods?

Battery was last fully charged. Now phone will not turn on, the only sign of life is when holding power button or plugging in, green light will blink on and off. No sounds, reboot, download mode, etc.. I have tried: Removing battery>holding power button>replace battery>power button. vol down+home+power. vol down+connect to computer. home+power button. Charging for 30 minutes + all of the above.. I think it was caused by: Nothing, just died and won't turn back on.
