Default [Q] NFC issues - not working! i9505

Hello,
I searched a lot in hte internet (including XDA), but could not find a propper answer.
I'm trying to use the NFC feature as a file transfer with S beam but either it's not working or I can't make it to work.

1. I tried to activate NFC and S beam on a few samsung devices including S3, S4 mini, S4 and could not sent anything using the stock gallery.
2. These other devices were successful sending between each other.
3. I checked my battery serial - it's AA

So, does anybody knows some way to maeasure the battery contacts (4 of a kind), e.g. with a multimeter to determine whether the NFC anntenna is intact?

Is there a possibility for the NFC chip to be blown in some way, having on mind that other features wifi and bluetooth are wotking fine.

Could be the reason in a problematic drivers? S4 uses Broadcom NFC.

I didn't had the chance to try NFC tags, šause I don't have any.
I made few hard resets after each OS update.

Any help will be appriciated.

Thanks in advance!

I have almost similar issue on i9502
NFC not turning on, the trigger remains grey and not activating NFC
I have tried resetting to factory defaults and flash several times different stock original ROMS, no change

even repalce the battery with other phones which have fine working NFC

is there any solution for this case ?

No just its original cover.
The problem is that NFC even cant be activated. The trigger (button) stays grey instead of turning to green.

I also have this problem after replace new battery. My current battery serial number also started with AA which cannot used NFC as well. Solution to switch back to original battery (the one come with the box) or buy a wireless charging receiver with NFC enable.

Default [Q] NFC issues - not working on i9195

I have the same problem ever since rooting my i9195. I made a few factory resets, did not help.

The S Beam icon can be turned on and off at will. The NFC trigger button turns green under Settings, but nothing else happens. When I leave the submenu, it turns off again. Clicking on NFC payments shuts Settings down. The phone does not pick up original Samsung TecTiles.

Both my TecTiles app and the Near Field NFC Test Center say that there is no NFC device in the phone. NFC turned on fine before the root.

My battery came with the phone (bought last month) and starts with AA.

Could this have something to do with Xposed Installer? I use XPrivacy but no restrictions on any NFC apps.

Please help
