How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Automatically Restarting

If your Samsung Galaxy is rebooting randomly, or it’s stuck on the logo screen, the solutions provided below could be helpful to you. The most common and frustrating problems among the series of Samsung galaxy are: Not registered on the network, Galaxy Slow ChargingNotification error, Slow Wifi Issue, No Signal and the list goes on. However, Samsung Galaxy automatically restarting issue seems to be a dominant problem that’s been disseminating.

While I am writing this article, I am researching, testing and experimenting different solutions for the Samsung Galaxy automatically restarting problem. As I dug deeper into the issue, I found that there wasn’t one reason for this error, more like 4-5 reasons why your phone may be restarting randomly without any prompts or signals whatsoever.

 

Typical Reasons for Samsung Galaxy Automatically Restarting

 

1. CPU Frequency too High

By default a brand-new Samsung Galaxy S2 is clocked at 1.2 GHz, Galaxy S3 –1.4 GHz, Galaxy S4 -1. 6GHz.. Newly purchased phones are prone to this problem as well, without any downloaded app and widget being installed on your two days or a week-old Android phone. You can still encounter random shutting down/restarting issue due to the high CPU frequency allocated.

 

2. Disturbances in Auto Syncing and Updating

You will encounter apps, games, and firmware being updated automatically or scheduled. Chances are you might not know if your firmware is compatible with the updates being installed, and this can cause conflict with apps not being able to communicate with your present firmware. This is normally seen with Gmail Updates and other Pre-installed Apps. On the other hand, auto syncing complies with the same behavior as updating.

 

3. Touch Wiz Conflicts with Firmware

Touch Wiz is a front-end touch interface developed by Samsung Electronics with partners, featuring a full touch user interface. TouchwWiz is present on your Samsung Galaxy. Often, the TouchWiz will show unusual behavior such as: ‘Unfortunately touch Wiz home has stopped‘, freezing and in this case “Automatically restarting your Samsung Galaxy.This problem is rooted from Widgets, apps and corrupted updates/data stored.

 

4. Cache and Data-storage Saturation

While you may have come across it before, “Clear cache” and “Clear Data”. The differences between these two are cache stores temporary data while running application, it can be related to a computer’s RAM. Clearing your data will erase modified preferences of applications, databases, and restore the application to its initial state. These two options have a notable impact on the Samsung Galaxy constantly, randomly or automatically restarting.

 

5. Stock ROM compatibility Issues

Samsung Galaxy Stock ROM’s are pre-installed Operating system that is uniquely developed by Mobile providers to make their Graphical interface distinctive from the rest. However, there may be issues with pre-built and pre-boot up features set by default provider, Such as At&t , Verizon, Fido that can cause your android phone to restart automatically. Some users installed Custom Stocks on their phone, which can cause this issue on their Phone as well.

2. Disturbances in Auto Syncing and Updating

As I stated above, sometimes updating routinely can interfere with currently running background services and apps. Most importantly, it depends on the apps you have installed.

Android phone restarting repeatedly by itself can be fixed by turning off Auto Syncing and Updating.

Solution- Turn off Auto Syncing

  • Navigate to settings
  • Scroll down to “Accounts and Sync”
  • Turn off all Sync.

Turn off Auto Syncing

We just did Auto syncing, now it’s time for updates. Delete all updates from these applications.

Uninstall Gmail updates

  • Navigate to settings
  • Application manager or Apps
  • Gmail
  • Click Uninstall Updates.

Uninstall Samsung Push Services updates

  • Navigate to settings

3. TouchWiz Conflicts with Firmware

Some of the most common things I heard from Samsung Galaxy users are: “my Samsung galaxy keeps rebooting, “my Samsung galaxy restarts by itself”, “my Samsung galaxy s6 restarts itself”, “my android keeps shutting off” and “my Samsung galaxy keeps turning itself off“.

Most people that I have told this solution, have solved it for them. The Icons, widgets and all the functions that are displayed on the home screen are the primary reason which may cause TouchWiz not to respond and restart your phone anonymously.

Solution 1

  • Navigate to settings
  • Application manager or apps
  • View all
  • Calendar Storage
  • Click Disable or Force stop.

Also, you can remove the Calendar Icon from the Home screen.

Solution 2

  • Navigate to settings
  • Application manager or apps
  • Click on running
  • Click on TouchWiz

If you do not see it,

  • Click Show Cached Processes
  • Clear Data.

 

4. Cache and Data-storage Saturation

By emptying your cache will not be such of an impact compared to clearing your data. Therefore:

  • Navigate to settings
  • Click Backup and reset
  • Click factory Data Reset
  • Proceed with caution. All data will be erased.

Cache and Data storage Saturation

5. Stock ROM compatibility Issues

This is one of the most ignored solutions for the “Samsung galaxy restarting constantly by itself issue.” Simply, installing Cyanogenmod can modify your Stock ROM. It may void the warranty. You do not need to root your device for this method.

Installing Cyanogenmod will factory reset your phone, so it’s better to backup. There are several ways to create a backup.

  • One of the best options is to make use of Samsung’s very own kies software that we normally use to update the software of our Galaxy devices.
  • The second way to create a backup of the device is with Google account. Head towards Settings> General> Backup & Reset and it will provide two options named as backup my data and automatic restores. Ensure those options are made on by ticking the checkbox next to them and it will backup details like Wi-Fi password, app data, Google settings and bookmarks automatically to Google server so that they can be retrieved again in case anything wrong happen with the device.
  • Another useful and easiest way to create a backup is using Samsung account. For that go to application> settings> User and backup> Account and check if you are signed in with your Samsung account. If the option is made on, it will sync the contacts, calendar and internet settings to the Samsung account.

See here if your phone is compatible with Cyanogenmod before proceeding:

  • Go to settings
  • Developer Option
  • Turn on USB Debugging mode
  • Connect your Phone to the computer
  • Download Cyangenmod Auto Installer, (Process can be reverted)
  • Run CM installer .EXE file.
  • It will automatically identify your phone
  • Click Install.

  1. I have a galaxy s7. My phone restarts automatically and randomly. If im in Chicago my phone works perfectly, but when I fly home to Washington the phone restarts over and over. If I take off the location there is no more problem when im in Washington. Why would the location service while I’m in Washington cause the phone to keep restarting.

  2. This is why my WHOLE FAMILY stop using Samsung since 2012.
    Now is 2019, Samsung still have this AUTO RESTART problem. 😆

  3. So my S8 randomly restarts and according to UBreakIFiX, it’s a faulty motherboard and an issue they’ve seen a lot. Although they’re an authorized Samsung Repair Center, Samsung doesn’t give anyone else authorization to work on their motherboards or exchange your phone, so the only option is to mail your phone into Samsung with a convenient turnaround time of 3 weeks. I can’t comprehend how terrible their customer service is. The fact you can’t get a factory defective issue resolved the same day, much less 3 weeks, makes me wonder how they still have a customer base. My iPhone broke under warranty, I made a phone call, and they next-day air mailed me a new phone free of charge, but this is how Samsung treats their customers? Electronics are sensitive, defects slip past QC, they get damaged during shipping, etc, so when you inevitably buy a defective Samsung product, remember, Samsung will not only not help you, they’ll make it so nobody else can help you either.

  4. The most frustrating aspect of this is that (I have a Samsung S7) when it restarts itself automatically, anything that’s not a messaging app doesn’t “come back” with notifications that were active at the time of the restart. Samsung got rid of the notification list they used to have where you could check recent notifications. I wish there was a way where these phones could be designed so that restarts (manual or automatic) don’t wipe away notifications. It’s happened like 5 times in the past month.

  5. I have tried the all above-suggested points but no way. Unless when I saw the second comment of above (By Yms). While I have purchased a new phone. And I charged my ex phone with new phone’s charger. :)) LOL , Now I have 2 very good working smart phone. Thanks to Yms.

  6. Comment:my Samsung galaxy grand prime is getting restarted while i make a call.even after i changed my battery.plz help me to get rid of this

  7. the main reason why your samsung phone keeps on restarting is that you have been using a wrong charger or a power source that have make your battery giving bad power to your phone. so please buy a new original samsung charger and battery, and all your problems will stop immediately

  10. So I recently had this problem. My J3 Pro 2017 was restarting by itself and then it kept showing logo screen. I contacted samsung and these are the steps to fix your phone
    1) charge your phone
    2) while charging, press the power button AND low volume button. it will show you the charging screen
    3) press the power button AND low volume button AGAIN. it will power up your phone to normal
    that’s it. hope it helps

  11. I recently had this issue I couldn’t get my Samsung galaxy note 2. To stop restarting without taking the battery out. I couldn’t get it to recovery mode. Nothing worked .. So after looking online YouTube hours of videos. I saw a video of a person banging there power button of the table I tried like a idiot after that I unscrewed the phone, took it all apart to get to the power button.
    1 put your charger in
    2 wait until the logo samsung galaxy appears or battery display
    3 disconnect the power button from the motherboard (carefully)
    Your Samsung should start like normal

    Only down side is you have to mess around to switch the phone back on!
    You can buy a replacement power button part from eBay around £2!!
    Hope this helps

  12. Samsung company are just playing games on us, this is for a second time mistake with samsung,my phone is samsung galaxy grand prime it keeps on restarting after 2mins i have tried all the above even gone further to IT WIZARDS but no solution.

  18. Hello, my Samsung galaxy j7 keep restarting in every 4-5 second. I don’t have enough time to use any of this. please help me.

  19. Thank you for the article. My Samsung S3 restarting issue turned out to be a mechanical one. After trying several of the above steps over a 3 day period, and continuing to have random powering offs, I repeatedly pressed the power button several times to loosen it up. I’m posting in case someone might be having a similar issue. My clue was when I caught the Power off/Airplane Mode/Restart screen pop up once before it restarted

  20. My phone (Samsung Galaxy Alpha) only restarts have it being off for 7 hours, it restarts repeatedly and drains my battery. None of this has helped.

  21. If this is an example of SAMSUNG quality then you can keep it and every Samsung device ever made. Out of sheer desperation I have resurrected my 9 year old Nokia phone which seems to work perfectly and NO perpetual restarting, closing down, discharging and generally fucking around.
    The next thief who wants to steal the bit of junk will have it given to him.
    or else I will chop it up into little pieces and return it to Samsung with my good wishes.
    I will never, ever buy another Samsung Device ever!!!! They are just plain garbage.

  22. Thanks for posting these tips. However, I don’t understand the need to lower the maximum frequency of the processors to 600 MHz. Isn’t that just resigning oneself to unbelievably slow performance? Or is that not what doing that really means?

  23. my phone is not staying on long enough for me to even open the security pattern lock.
    how do i fix the issue ? It keeps restarting, like every minute.

    1. I got a restarting problem with Galaxy S4 mini. The problem disappears
      when I keep my phone on a table instead of keeping it in my hand. So
      this may be a problem with a loose power button.

    2. Seems like Tommi is right. I’m not sure yet, but 1 hour ago it was rebooting like every 1 minute on my hand. I put it on my desk, and search for it on google, I found Tommi’s advice. Then I checked the Galaxy S4 mini and realized that it didn’t reboot. I can’t assure this is a Power button issue, but it really looks like it.

  29. My phone started resetting recently especially when I try to make calls. I have tried a factory reset, rooting the phone and every option on your list except for the Cyanogenmod reset because I don’t think my phone is compatible. Please help if there are any other options I can try.
