Re: Gear S3 not charging

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I appreciate that, but being that this was delivered this way, I intiated a return the day after i got it. Just waiting for a return label to send it back. I ordered a replacement that arrives today, so as soon as Samsung gets me that return label, they will be free to run all the tests they want.

Re: Gear S3 not charging

JUMP TO SOLUTION
I have or hopefully had the same problem: red light blinking on the charger and won't start charging.

It was working fine while connectect to the 4-port external USB hub, but then suddenly it just stopped charging. So, I connected the wireless charger to another USB cable and charger, and S3 started charging normally. I also noticed the USB cable is not always connected properly to the charger. I am using now other than Samsung's original USB cable and wall charger (240V).

I have the European version of S3 Frontier (SM-R760) sold in Finland, and I suppose it has the latest firmware/software inside that is available in EU/Finland (Tizen v3.0.0.1, software R760XXU2CQK3).

I just bought the Gear S3 along with a new S8 Plus.  I get the same annoying problem.  It is apparent that this is a common problem which Samsung needs to look into.  Someone there must have a solution to this.  It is obviously something you are hearing from many customers.  I need resolution or I will need to return and go back to my old fashioned watch.  The one that told time!  Hahaha!  Please advise!

Apparently they just restock the ones that dont charge. I bought an S3 classic open box from best buy and on day 1 it had the charging problem.

I have the same problem. Will not full charge. often get so hot that I get a message saying it has to cool down before it works again.   vey frustrating.  Amazing that Samsung does not respond to this.
