My Samsung Galaxy S4 keeps showing the message "Charging paused. Battery temperature is too low", whenever I plug the phone into a charger. I've tried using a different charger and even another battery but the message re-appears and the phone continues to not charge.

How can I resolve this problem?

  • As the message states, your battery may actually be too cold to charge efficiently. Is the device in the correct operating temperatures? Most electronic devices won't charge if the room temperature is below 0°C. You could also try leaving it to charge for an extended period of time to allow it to heat up. I don't recommend trying to heat your device with a fire for example though, as this could damage it. – Cameron Clough May 30 '15 at 15:22
  • ^its not a temperature problem. I have seen a lot of people reporting and online sources suggest it being the thermistor lying near the charging port thats faulty. Ofcourse the real battery temp cant reach that low unless you live in Antarctica..... ofcourse I am not sure that it would be same for this case as well – Jaskaranbir Singh May 30 '15 at 15:25

Reflash the stock rom using odin. If it didn't work, change the power socket

  • and how would that exactly work to solve the problem ? – svarog Jun 2 '15 at 6:09
  • Sometimes the problem is related to software , or the socket is causing a problem – user4954836 Jun 3 '15 at 22:48
