[Q] Charging Paused, Battery temperature too low. Already tried everything!
I'm facing a very troublesome problem,
Whenever I plug in my GT-N71000 to my charger or the computer, the phone shows that error "Charging paused. Battery temperature too low", or if the phone is off it shows the yellow exclamation point with a thermometer.
I know that must be a really common thread here at XDA-Dev but I have searched the entire internet to find out a solution for this. What have I already done:
When it appeared for the first time I could take the battery off and put it again and sometimes it would charge whenever the phone wanted (I didn't know before that Note II had personality). I downloaded apps that monitor the battery temperature and it showed -20°C. Really freaky. Then I moved to another country and sometimes it worked. I opened it up cleaned and I could charge for some time, then it came back. I went to the Samsung Service and replaced the charging mechanism and the phone worked fine until last friday after a drunken night when this problem showed again!
It happens even with other batteries, so battery problem is ruled out. I opened the phone again and checked the PCB it looks fine, doesn't have any damage of water or any corrupt paths.
I even rooted, deleted battery stats.bin . Reflashed to stock and it's no use. What makes me believe it is some hardware problem with the thermistor that reads the battery temperature, since it was stuck in -20, -19.
Is there a way to reprogram the kernel or whatever coding is responsible for this reading to fool the phone that the battery temperature is at normal levels, so this way I could charge and use my phone normally? Has anyone any solution that I haven't tried? I want to try everything before going to Samsung again because I'm really sure they will say they have to change the whole PCB.
Thank you very much
