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?
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).
