  1. Poor quality ! Samsung has had this issue for a long time as I’m a long time user of their products! But the battery issues when charging/not charging shouldn’t even be happening! Nothing wrong with how I handle/use my product so why won’t my phone charge? Although it attempts it, it constantly loops! Trying to charge! Took the steps outlined above to no avail so now I’m going to be out of pocket again to try for a repair! Its outrageous in this day and age that company as big as samsung still has not given/worked on a suitable solution in their faulty products! Do they not care? Just bang out millions of products regardless of quality? No longer buying anything from samsung ever again – been out of pocket for too long whilst they are making more and more – thank you samsung for adding to my stresses

  2. I have samsung note 4, i am facing charging issues it charge well when i connect cable with PC or Leptop but i am not able to charge my cell phone in wall charger or socket, he dont charge in electric charger. please help me for resolving this issue.thanks

  3. For all those saying it’s a power button issue in my case it’s not. When connected to a wall charger it will not charge and when switched off and connected does the familiar vibrate and no charging. However my fix was to plug the USB lead into my laptop or computer. As soon as I did that the damn thing charges happily as long as it’s powered on. So if yours is doing it. Plug into your pc or laptop before the battery dies altogether and then this fix won’t work

  4. please help. i connected my phone to a portable battery and then to a car charger and when i tried charging it to my wall mount charger it wont charge. i am only able to charge my cell when i plug it inn to my laptop

    1. That’s strange. It sounds like an issue with the wall charger, but did it all work well before you connected your phone to a portable battery?

  5. I think it could be firmware related. I could charge my GT-N7000 just fine with the Jellybean 4.1.2 firmware , as soon as I upgraded it wouldn’t charge using a normal adapter. I have to charge my note using my laptop, and I still have this connector issue, where I have to connect it to the right or it disconnects. I am looking into installing a note 4 charging port in my note.
