Step 1: Just Make Sure The Galaxy S6 didn’t Freeze

But, Samsung recently added a new feature to their customers. Now, they are able to hard reboot their galaxy s6 when it is unresponsive. In fact, if you have recently booted your phone, then it’s clear to you what needs to be done. But, if you don’t know how to hard reboot your galaxy s6, then this is for you. Just press and hold the power button and volume key simultaneously for only 7 seconds to reboot it.

That’s it! These are the steps you need to follow to reboot your phone. If the phone didn’t reboot for the first time, then just do it again to make sure. Sometimes the phone may not charge because it is frozen. So, try hard rebooting the phone to determine whether it is due to the frozen phone or not.
Step 2: Troubleshoot the charger
If the screen of your galaxy s6 remained black or it won’t charge after rebooting for several times. Then, it’s time to perform some basic troubleshooting to solve the issue. Sometimes there may be an issue with the charger. So, the easiest way to check whether is charger is the problem is to use a different one. Just borrow a charger from your friend and try to connect it to your phone. If the phone starts responding after connecting to the other charger, then there may be an issue with the charger. But if it doesn’t respond, then just move to the next step.
Step 3: Troubleshoot the USB cable
The USB cable is an important part of the charger because it connects the charger to the phone. Without it, it’s impossible for the charger to pass the current into the phone. So, we recommend you to check the USB cable after checking the charger. The easiest way to check the USB cable is working fine or not is to use another one USB cable. Then, just plug it into the charger and if the phone responds then the USB cable is the problem. The main purpose to do this is to check whether the phone responds after connecting to a new USB cable. If it didn’t, then just move to the next step.

Step 4: Make Sure the USB Cable or Port is not Loose
Sometimes the loose connection may or may not be a problem when galaxy s6 won’t charge. This may happen if the USB port is not connected to your phone correctly. If it’s that kind of loose, then try connecting it again to charge the phone. But if it’s an internal fault, then we recommend you to just visit the shop and tell the technician to fix the problem. Never try to open the phone to inspect it because it will automatically void the guarantee of the phone.
That’s it! These are the fixes that you can use to solve the issue when the galaxy s6 won’t charge. I hope this post will help you to solve the issue.
