The most likely cause is that your PC can't supply enough current over the USB connection to charge your phone while it's awake. Smartphones draw a lot of power these days, so their chargers use extensions to the USB standard to supply more power, so they can charge even while the phone is in use. Most PCs don't support these extensions, so they can't. The ...

I had the same problem and today I did find what was causing my problem. It just started yesterday, 2 weeks after I got the phone. And the ONLY thing that was different is that I started using a generic AC charger that arrived yesterday. When I suspected it was the charger this morning, I switched back to the white Samsung charger that came with the phone ...

How I resolved mine was buying a new battery, my battery was dated for 2012 and simply needed to go. New battery resolved my problem, and ...

Check if your charger's current or voltage is not higher than what your phone is supposed to accept. I had similar issues before with generic (chinese) Android chargers.

Problem solved: the reason was a defect in the battery. There was a small crack over the side of the battery. It was replaced by the shop where I bought the Phone last year.

You can be 99.9% sure the touchscreen is fine. Battery wasn't damaged too. If the touchscreen still behaves erroneously after unplugging, then rubbing it with a soft cloth should help. This is a common issue with cheap chargers. It indicates that charger may not be safe to use with any device - it may catch fire or explode. Prolonged use of such chargers ...

If light is not on press power on quickly just so that the battery percentage shows in the center, it should blank screen again and the charging light come on and remain on. You can retest battery charge ...

In my experience, and my extensive reading on the subject, it seems to be related to the charger and not the cable, unless the cable is a non-standard USB cable. Samsung does not use a special cable for their micro-USB chargers, only their old devices with the Apple-like connector. The USB standard requires handshaking to negotiate more than 500 ma of ...

To answer some of your questions in your comments: The USB specification allows for a fifth channel, OTG (On-The-Go), to negotiate master/slave relationships. Some manufacturers remove the OTG channel (cheapo USB cables are notorious for this), and, subsequently, charging negotiation is halted if the device is trying to send data through it. Some early ...

For this you cannot open the USB cable and change the design or something what you can do Is to try another OEM USB cable like ...
