Pre Checks: What Charging Option Are You Trying?

Before diving into the solutions, it’s important to understand the charging method you’re using for your Samsung Galaxy S22. 

As we all know, there are three primary ways to charge your device:

  1. Cable Charging: This is the most common method. Here we are using a USB-C cable and an adapter to charge the device.

    Samsung Galaxy S22 supports both Fast Charging and Super Fast Charging features, which significantly reduce the charging time. Make sure you’re using a genuine Samsung charger and cable to take advantage of these features.
  2. Wireless Charging: This method requires a compatible wireless charging pad. Simply place your device on the pad to start charging. However, not all charging pads are the same. Some may not support the fast wireless charging feature of Galaxy S22.
  3. Wireless PowerShare: This new feature allows your Galaxy S22 to charge using other Qi-compatible devices. To use this feature, you need to enable it in the settings and then place the other device on the back of your Galaxy S22.

If you are using USB charging or wireless charging, using genuine power adapters, cables, and compatible charging pads is crucial for the health and longevity of your device’s battery.

Also, If you’re using wireless charging or Wireless PowerShare, make sure you’re positioning your device correctly on the charging pad or the other device. Incorrect positioning may result in slow charging or no charging at all.

Now that we’ve covered the basics. Now let’s move on to the troubleshooting steps.

Fix 01: Check the Charger/Cable/Charging Pad With Another Device

Before diving into more complex fixes, it’s important to ensure that the problem doesn’t lie with your charger, cable, or charging pad. It is because these components can wear out over time or become damaged, which can prevent your device from charging.

The best way to check if the charger you are using works is by checking it with another healthy device. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Find another device that uses the same type of charger or charging pad. This could be another smartphone, a tablet, or any compatible device.
  2. Connect your charger or place the device on your charging pad.
  3. Monitor the device to see if it begins charging.

If your charger or charging pad doesn’t work with the other device, it’s likely that one of these components is the problem. 

Check the charger

In this case, you purchase a new charger, cable, or charging pad. When purchasing, buy a genuine Samsung product or a product from a reputable third-party manufacturer to avoid compatibility issues.

However, if your charger or charging pad works with the other device, your Samsung Galaxy S22 might be the issue. In this case, proceed to the next sections to begin troubleshooting your device.

Fix 02: Do a Forced Restart

Restarting your device fixes many minor issues on your Samsung Galaxy S22. This process is similar to a soft reset, which refreshes your device’s memory and closes any apps running in the background that may be causing the problem. 

Also, It’s a simple yet effective solution that doesn’t affect any of your personal data. So here’s how to perform a forced restart on your Samsung Galaxy S22:

  1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key simultaneously for about 15 – 30 seconds.
  2. Release both buttons when the Samsung logo appears on the screen.
  3. Wait for your device to finish restarting.

After the device has restarted, plug in the charger to see if the problem is resolved.

Fix 03: Check and Clean the Charging Port

The charging port of your Samsung Galaxy S22 is a small, complex piece of hardware that can easily become blocked with dirt, debris, or even moisture. 

Clean the charging port

This can lead to the device not charging properly or not charging at all. You may even encounter a moisture detection alert when trying to charge your device if there’s any moisture present in the charging port.

To check and resolve this issue, you’ll need to carefully clean the charging port. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Turn off your device: Before you begin, ensure that your device is completely powered off.
  2. Inspect the port: Use a flashlight to take a close look at the charging port. If you see any obvious debris or dirt, that could be causing the problem.
  3. Clean the port: Use a small, soft-bristled brush (like a clean toothbrush) to gently clean the port. Be careful not to damage the pins inside the port.
  4. Dry the port: If there’s any moisture, use a piece of absorbent cloth or a small amount of compressed air to dry the port. Here, do not insert any metal objects into the port as it can cause serious damage to the device.

After cleaning the port, try charging your device again. If it starts charging, then the issue was due to dirt or moisture in the charging port.

Fix 04: Turn On Fast Charging and Super Fast Charging Features

As we said at the beginning, your Samsung Galaxy S22 comes with Fast Charging and Super Fast Charging features. 

Although these features allow your device to charge at a much faster rate than conventional charging, sometimes these features might experience glitches which could interfere with the charging process.

To refresh these features and potentially fix any glitches that lie within settings, you need to toggle these features off and then on again. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open the Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Battery and device care.

Follow these steps to check for and install any available software updates for your Galaxy S22:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Battery and device care.

Fix 06: Take the Device to a Repair Center

If all the above solutions were not successful to resolve the charging issue on your Samsung Galaxy S22, it’s time to seek professional help. This is because there’s a possibility that the problem might be rooted in hardware issues, such as a faulty charging port or any other internal component.
