[Q] Wireless Charging Stopped Working?!?
OK, goes wtihout saying (but I'm saying anyway) that any assistance in troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.
Have the official Sammy wireless charging back cover and a few Tylt VU stands. The phone was wirelessly charging like a champ for months. Then, one day I put the phone on the Tylt and... nothing. The phone did not recognize the charger and the charger light cycled between a 2 second steady green, a red flash, and then a 2 second steady red. There were no hard drops of the phone on the day it just stopped working. Nadda. Nothing. Which is actually surprising since I have a 3 year old and a 9 month old. I can confirm that the Tylt chargers themselves didn't start pushing up daisies all on the same day because they still work just fine with my wife's S5, also with an official Sammy charging cover.
Here are the steps I've tried to fix/find the issue...
- Reboot the phone
- Different Tylt VU
- Pull battery, wait a while
- Pull cover, re-seat
- Pull cover, raise contacts in phone with a pin
- Wipe and re-install ROM
- Threaten to kick the dog
If I put the back cover on the stand by itself (no phone) I get the same exact sequence of error flashes from the Tylt. No clue what this means. Does anyone know how to test the back cover itself to see if it is still working as expected? I have a multi-meter, but not sure what pins to check at what setting
