Hey all,
I got the galaxy s5 about a month ago and went online and picked up a generic wireless receiver and charging pad. Every time I put the phone on to charge I would get a charge and then disconnect and it would keep doing that. Well I thought ill just get the official Samsung galaxy s5 wireless cover and went online found some good reviews of a tiled qi wireless charging pad. I got it all today and same thing. Move it around and still unable to get it to work. Tired multiple usb cords and still nothing. Only thing left to try is to get the Samsung charging pad. Anybody have any ideas?

I had issues with low cost eBay Chinese charger pad, just the same symptoms as you describe. No issues with the Nokia or Samsung Charging pads though.
Currently rocking the Samsung OEM Charging back with the Nokia FatBoy Charging pad without any issues.

Thanks that did it. Went and got a Nokia charging pad at Verizon and works like a charm. I'm never lucky enough to get the cheap ones to work!

Found another solution for low cost chargers
- remove the top cover and put your phone directly on the transmitter coil ->> the problem was resolved
