Solutions to S10 charging problems following Android 10 update
If your Galaxy S10 isn’t charging for whatever reason, you’ll need to go through a number of troubleshooting procedures to figure out what’s wrong. Follow the guidelines we’ve provided here.
Verify charging adapter and USB cable are not damaged
A faulty adaptor (the one that connects into the power socket) or USB cable is one of the most prevalent causes of charging issues. Check for physical damage to the adapter and USB now.
If you don’t care for your USB cable, look for breaks where you normally bend it. The USB charging cable has fragile wires that may break. If there are enough damaged wires inside, it may cease charging.
If any of these fails, only use an official Samsung accessory to repair it. Using non-Samsung authorised accessories may cause harm or issues to your S10.
Check the charging port
If you’ve determined that the problem isn’t caused by your charging accessories, the next step is to make sure the charging port isn’t obstructed. Dirt or lint may get into the port and prevent the USB cable from properly attaching. If you plug the USB cable into the port and it feels loose, there might be anything preventing it.
A magnifying instrument may be used to inspect the port. Avoid inserting anything into the system to probe for foreign items, since this may cause harm to the system. Remember, all you need to do here is look inside for anything apparent. If you find that work difficult, just disregard my proposal. If you feel that there is anything within the port that you are unable to access, have a professional inspect it for you. Bring your S10 to a Samsung Service Center near you.
Refresh the system cache
If you were having charging issues prior to getting the Android 10 update, you may have a problem with your Galaxy S10 system cache. To test, try erasing the cache partition where this cache is kept.
- Here’s how you do it:
- Turn the gadget off.
- Hold down the Volume Up and Bixby keys, then hit and hold the Power key.
- Release all keys when the green Android logo appears (‘Installing system update’ will appear for roughly 30 – 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu choices appear).
- To highlight ‘wipe cache partition,’ press the Volume down key multiple times.
- To choose, press the Power button.
- Push and hold the Volume Down key until the word ‘yes’ appears, then press the Power button.
- When the erase cache partition is finished, the option to “Reboot system immediately” is highlighted.
- To restart the device, press the Power button.
