Guys, i have a 10 months old Galaxy Mega 6.3 and suddenly i'm not able to charge the battery.

I've tried to charge with 30%~ 40%, with my phone turned on, which i always do, everyday... And don't charge at all.

I've tried to charge it turned off, but keeps repeating that screen with the battery with a circle(and a rumble), then this repeats over and over...

Is my battery dead?

Hi..first try removing the battery from the phone for about 10 secs and put it back in and see if that will help, because the battery should still be in a charging state even if the battery was not that good as this has happened to me on other samsung phones, and if not better re-install the rom you have, but make a backup first if you can..worth a try before proceeding further.

I have the latest stock rom installed, so, i don't think it is a rom issue. Besides that, how can i re-install it if i can't turn my phone on? Now i have something 1 or 2% battery life =/

I've tried to remove the battery a couple times, 10sec, 10min... nothing seems to work. Since i have warranty, i'll have to use it, the problem here in Brazil, specially in my city, the service takes forever(3 to 4 weeks =/)

Oh okay I didn't know you could not get into the rom or past that battery icon..then most likely a port problem forsure..did you try another usb cable to just make sure.

Edit: when you have your usb cable unplugged from the phone it should still boot into your rom as the port has nothing to do with that part..what does it show on your screen when you boot the phone without the usb connected.

The battery terminals may be dirty.wipe both gold coloured contacts with a clean, soft cloth and try charging the battery again.

This happened to me last month on my 10 months old Mega. It was driving me crazy. Phone was charging just 10% / hour (as opposed to 60%). I tried charging with other chargers but result wasn't different.

After much research I came to know that my phone did not have any of the following problems

- ROM (stock 4.2.2), my phone was going into good deep sleep etc.
- Some app (I factory reset my phone to rule that out)
- My charger (I used others')
- My USB port (I always use wall charger)

The problem was with the freaking charger cable (weird right?). I took my friend's charging cable and used with original charger and my phone was back on track.

I still have to buy a new cable. Just researching to get a good one (weird again).

I found the Mega does tend to get hot sometimes where the battery is. I think it's faulty connectors. One of mine looks a bit discolored. But who knows.
