Fix Galaxy A7 2017 Charging Issues

Solution#1: Check your charger

Check your charger by charging another phone. If the other phone charges fine, that means it’s not the charger issue. But if the charger fails to charge another phone, it means that the charger is the culprit. You need to get a new charger for your phone in this case.

Solution#2: Check the Data Cable

You also need to check if your data cable is fine. You can check the data cable by connecting it to another phone. If the data cable works fine with another phone, that means the cable is fine and the issue is somewhere else. However, if the cable fails to establish a connection with the other phone, then you need to find a good cable and replace your malfunctioned cable.

Solution#3: Check the Charging Port

Have a look into the charging port of your phone. If you find dust and other particles in the charging port, you need to pick up a toothpick and clean the charging port. Connect the data cable after cleaning the charging port and see if it goes fine now or not.

Solution#4: Check the electricity connection

Sometimes, the voltage coming out of the electrical connection is not enough to charge the phone. A too low voltage will give you a charging error on the phone, but if the voltage is low (not too low), you will not see any error and the phone will keep charging extremely slow. In such a case, you need to check out another switch to see if that charges your phone normally or not.

Solution#5: Check your phone’s battery

If everything mentioned above seems to be in a good state, then the last resort is to replace the battery of your phone. A faulty battery can resist charging. You have to take your phone to your nearest service centre to get its battery checked since the Galaxy A7 2017 comes with a non-removable battery.

Fix Galaxy A7 2017 Battery Life Issues

Solution#1: Use Power Saving Mode

Using Power Saving mode can significantly save the battery life of your phone. It turns off all the unnecessary background tasks and optimizes the battery usage accordingly. Turning on the battery saving mode will take a few seconds. To turn it on, pull down the notification bar and expand the toggles. Now tap the Power saving button. Alternatively, you can go to settings > device maintenance > battery > Set the power saving to low or high depending on your choice.

Solution#2: Turn on your phone in Safe Mode

Sometimes, an application that we recently installed can slow down both the performance and battery life of our phone. It’s necessary to examine and capture the culprit application in such a case. Luckily, it’s very easy to determine whether an application is behind the low-life of your phone’s battery. You can simply boot your phone in the Safe Mode which will disable all the applications on your phone. If the phone works absolutely fine after turning off the applications, that means there is an application which is causing the entire issue. Now you need to check your installations one by one and uninstall any that looks like the offender. To boot your phone into Safe Mode, turn it off first. Now turn on the phone and press and hold Volume Down key. Keep the key pressed as long as the phone doesn’t show you the home-screen. Once it shows you the home-screen, you will find a Safe Mode watermark on the lower left corner. All the apps are disabled now and you can wait for the battery results.

Solution#3: Reduce Screen Brightness

The increased screen brightness can eat the battery of your phone. In such a case you can either use the automatic brightness feature or you can lower down the brightness. Since the Samsung phones use Super AMOLED displays, it’s a good idea to use black wallpapers since black wallpapers do not need to draw a lot of pixels on the AMOLED screens. Using colourful wallpapers can eat the battery as well.

Solution#4: Clear the Cache of your phone

Clearing the cache of the phone is like a medicine that cures every single disease. You can try clearing cache of your phone to check if there’s a change in the battery life. To clear the cache, turn off your phone. Now press and hold Volume Up + Home + Power button to turn it on. As your phone shows the recovery screen, select the Clear cache partition option and clear it. After restarting the mobile, you can wait for a change in the battery life.

Solution#5: Perform a factory reset/Flash a new firmware

If all of the above solutions fail to work, you can try performing a factory data reset. This will wipe everything from your phone. Make sure that you take a backup of everything before performing a factory reset.

Even if the factory reset doesn’t make a difference, you can go to a new firmware. Here’s the guide: How To Flash Stock Firmware On Samsung Galaxy With Odin.

Solution#6: Replace the battery

This may seem an odd solution, but if nothing is working for you, then this is the way to go. A faulty battery will never let you live a normal life. Get your phone’s battery checked from the nearest service centre and if it’s messed up, get it replaced immediately.
