How do you fix a broken Samsung charger?

It may be unpleasant and inconvenient to be without a broken charger when you need to charge your smartphone, laptop, tablet, or other electronic device. There are various things you may check to see whether the problem can be resolved without the requirement for an electrician’s certification.

Reasons Why a Charger Stops Working

There are a few basic reasons why your charger would stop working:

  • The wall socket is off or damaged.
  • A damaged charger.
  • There is damage to the device power port.

How to Fix a Broken Charger

Some solutions, like as rewiring, are required, but there are other fixes that you may attempt in order to get your faulty charger back up and running again. These fixes will help you for your Samsung broken charger.

  • Check to verify that the outlet is operational. Individual switches are available on several European-style outlets. Switched surge protectors, a light switch that controls the wall outlets, or a circuit breaker are all options in American houses. It’s possible that you’ll need to reset a tripped breaker.
  • Check to see that the wires are properly attached. Unplug all of the cords in the system, wait a few minutes, and then carefully and correctly rejoin the cables. Reinstalling the components requires checking that all of the connections are secure and precise.
  • Look for flashing lights. Is the status light on your Mac charger glowing if you’re trying to operate with a faulty charger? In the same way, status lights on laptop computer chargers and portable charger battery packs should be kept on at all times.
  • Restart the charging device when it has finished charging. Because the device is in control of a significant portion of its charging activity, restarting the device may assist with charging detection issues.
  • Attempt a different electrical outlet. Outlets are durable, but they are not infallible. Check out our multimeter suggestions below to make sure an outlet is operational.
  • Check the charger for signs of wear and tear. If you see a bare wire, insulation that has been removed, or wire shielding, it is possible that this is the root of the issue. Additionally, connect the cable in and wriggle the cable at both ends to ensure that it is secure. If the charger only works sporadically when you move the cord, the copper wire in the cable has been broken. Replacement of the wire with a new one is preferable.
  • Examine the individual components. Remove the adapter, outlet splitter, power strip, or surge protector, as well as any other unnecessary components, and only leave the charger connected into an outlet that has been tested and found to be functional. If the outlet is functional, but the charger will not turn on, the fault is not with the wall socket itself.
  • If the charger functions properly when connected into a power outlet, the fault is with one of the components that was removed. Continue to add the remaining components back in one by one until the system crashes, but don’t stop at that point. Change the arrangement of the pieces or the location of the parts to see if it works better.
  • Check the fuses to make sure they are not blown. When you access the fuse box, check for a breaker that has been flipped and reverse it. For the most part, all of the switches in a single column or row point in the same direction. If you observe a fuse with its handle pointing in the other way from where it should be, it has most likely been tripped. Locate the fuse that corresponds to the outlet.
  • Ensure that the charging port is clean. Examine the charging device’s internals if you don’t hear or feel a click when the charging wire is plugged in. Users have discovered that anything from pocket lint to a grain of rice stuck in the charging port of their phones may block the phone from charging. This has been seen with both Lightning and USB-C charging connectors. Plastic tweezers, a cotton swab, or a toothpick may be used to remove any trash from the area.
  • Try an alternative cable and power adapter to see if that helps. The charging cord is the most common cause of charger failure, and it is also the most expensive. Over time, the cable is subjected to the highest strain, and as a result, it is more likely to break first. It is also possible for the charging brick that connects the cable to the wall to fail, however this is not as often. Try using an alternative USB charging cable and adapter to see whether the issue is resolved on its own or requires further investigation. Replace each one one at a time until you find the source of the problem.
  • Delete everything from the USB port. A USB port on Samsung charger that is physically hindered from establishing good contact due to shielding, cable design, port furniture, or whatever else may be fixed by eliminating the physical barrier that is preventing good contact. If the sheet metal casing of a USB port has been bent over time, it is quite simple to bend it back into shape. If the little tongue within the charging port on your newer USB Micro and USB-C devices is out of position, bend it back into place.
