    So i have a galaxy s4 and it was working just fine until it died. For some reason, my phone won't charge anymore. When i plug it into my computer, it detects it but tells me to remove the device because it's taking up too much power to restart it. When i plug it into the wall outlet, it just heats up the charger but nothing goes on with the phone. Does anyone know how to fix it??

    Paola this sounds very much

    Paola this sounds very much of a hardware problem, if the charger gets hot when plugged into the wall socket, then you defiantly need to change that charger to a original Samsung galaxy charger

    If you cannot get a different charger,try using the USB to charge it via PC.

    Do a Battery dis-charged

    >Remove the battery
    >Hold the Power button and home button for 4 mins
    >Re-insert the battery and charge via USB/ New charger

    It is always advisable to turn off all mobile data connections , such as 4G LITE, 3G, WIFI,BLUETOOTH, while charging.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Charger rated 2A , 5V.

    For me clearing the System

    For me clearing the System dump , solve the problem. You can read it from this article

    Also Re-calibrating Your Samsung Galaxy battery helps :

    Remove the Battery from your Galaxy S4

    >Plug in original charger into your Galaxy s4 without the battery inserted, VIA PC. Do not connect it by the wall socket .

    > Leave it there plugged in for 30 Mins.

    >After, insert the battery without removing the charger

    >Let the Galaxy charge to 100% around 1 hour

    >When the battery is fully charged. Remove the charger

    >Let your Galaxy S5 drains to 0%(Discharge)
    >Repeat these step twice.
