Question [Q] Nexus 5 charging only when it is turned off

Hey there!

My Nexus 5, after updating it to 4.4.3, is having a issue: the device is charging only when it is turned off. When I turn the phone on, while charging, it will remain charging. But if I connect the charger, when the phone is already turned on, it will not charge.

I have tested 2 different cables, same issue.

Is anyone else having the same problem? How to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Just for clarification: I'm using Kit Kat 4.4.3, rooted, Xposed.

what are you charging from? ac or pc?
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

Save money on refills for your prepaid plans: Use Callingmart

Another question, are you using the stock wall wart? Some aftermarket chargers don't put out enough amperage. Another possibility is that you've got some rogue processes keeping your phone awake so it's using battery as quickly (or quicker) than it can take in a charge.

I'm using the AC charger that came with my Nexus 5.

I think it might be a hardware issue. I have the same problem with my pebble. I have tried multiple cables/chargers and it only charges when it's off. When it's on I get the charging notification but it doesn't actually charge
