Troubleshooting a Galaxy A10 that won’t charge
Charging issues are among the most common and while they’re pretty annoying, most of the time, they’re pretty easy to fix. With that being said, here’s what you should do if your Galaxy A10 won’t charge…
First solution: Make sure you’re using the original cable and charger
While you may have already tried using third-party cables and chargers to charge your phone, it’s best to use the original. Samsung cables and chargers are built to work with devices that come with them in the box. Aside from that, before these accessories leave the warehouse, they’re being tested.
Second solution: Make sure that the charger is plugged into a working wall outlet
It’s easy to do this. Just plug the charger into an outlet where you previously plugged your appliance. If you know how to use a multimeter, then that’s also one of the ways that will tell you immediately if the outlet is working fine.
Third solution: Check your charger and cable to fix a phone that won’t charge
After the first two procedures, it’s best to check the port on your charger to see if there are lints suspended in it. You may use an anti-static brush or simply use a toothbrush (a clean and dry one, of course) to clean the port.
Also, check both ends of the cable to see if there’s dirt that obstructs the current. Also use a brush to clean the connectors.
Fourth solution: Check the charging port of your phone
After checking the charger and cable, it’s time you checked the charge port of your device itself. Try to see if there are foreign materials in there that obstructs the current. You can also use an anti-static brush or simply a toothbrush to clean it up.
After doing all these, try to see if your phone charges. Most of the time, this issue can be fixed by any of these procedures. However, for owners whose phones turned off and won’t charge, the best thing you can do about it is a forced restart.
- Press the volume down button and the power key at the same time, and hold them together for 10 seconds or more.
