As you can see in the image, your Galaxy S22’s center should be placed on the center of the charging pad to charge the device correctly. Therefore, try to place the phone on the pad differently to see if it detects the charger.

Also, check if you have enabled fast wireless charging feature. If you have enabled the feature, try disabling it. If you haven’t enabled the feature, then enable it and see if the problem resolves. You can locate the fast wireless charging feature by following the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap on “Battery and device care.”
  3. Tap on Battery.
  4. Then scroll down and tap on “More battery settings.”

A faulty wireless charger causes issues when charging. Ensure that the charger is plugged in correctly and that the charging pad is clean. Also, make sure the charger is compatible with your Samsung Galaxy S22. 

To check whether it is the charger or your device causing the issue, check the wireless charger with another supported device. If the charger is working correctly with other devices, proceed to the next fix.

Fix 03: Remove the Back Cover and Try Again

The back cover of your Samsung Galaxy S22 can obstruct the wireless charging process. Remove the back cover and place your device on the wireless charger again. If the charging starts, the issue is with the back cover. Consider using a thinner cover or one specifically designed for wireless charging.

Fix 04: Do a Software Update

If you haven’t updated your phone’s software, it is time to do that now. Outdated software also causes issues with wireless charging, as they often lead to creating software bugs.

To update your Samsung Galaxy S22, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Software update.”
Software update
  1. Tap on “Download and install.”

If an update is available, you will receive a notification. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.

Fix 05: Try a Different Wireless Charger

If the issue persists even after updating the software, try using a different wireless charger. This will further determine if the problem is with your current charger or your Samsung Galaxy S22. 

It is okay if you don’t have an extra wireless charger, you can proceed to the fix below. But if you do have or you can find one, if the device charges wirelessly with a different charger, consider replacing your current charger.

Fix 06: Take Your Phone to a Repair Center to Check for Hardware Defects
