I have been using Samsung Classic watch for past one year with no issue.
After recent firmware upgrade my battery is not charging to 100% .
Issue is red light blink. Even when charge power off. Max reach once 72%. Normal charge only till 32-50%.
Software version: R770XXU2CRH1
Tizen : 184.108.40.206
Even after reset still show latest firmware.
Pls advice if any way to restore back original firmware to avoid this battery charing problem?
I have just purchased Gear S3 Frontier, and within one month the watch is showing charging problem, i tried various ways, try to charge with everything on, charging with flight mode omn, charging with power safe mode etc, and in most situation battery stops charging at 93-96% if i take battery off hook and put again after some time, it might chnage again but no guarantee
What funny is, I have been unable to use my watch since the update because of the charging problem. It seem like Samsung introduced a charging problem after the last update. Any help!!! Samsung fix this problem
I just ran into this problem with the last update that was pushed out on 04/05/18.
Purchased the watch only 2 weeks ago.
Note that I can get to 100% by 1% increments. That's a lot of cradle watching!!! (pun intended)
Please fix this Samsung!
hi there, i have an issue with my gear s3 frontier. it doesnt want to charge anymore..... its dead. i went to my cellphone company to try one of the chargers that they have on display but it didnt charge it. help please!!!!
I've had the Gear S3 Frontier for over a year now. Never had any issues until the latest update install. It's at 19% and doesnt charge anymore. Put used 2 different charge pads and different outlets and adapters but to no avail. I put it on power save mode to save what little power I have left. Any help from the Samsung tech team?
You are right problem is due to Hardware but why it started from previous firmwarre upgrade we had. This means Software controlling these Hardware messed up or had bug causing overall issue we face.
I am waiting for Sep patch come in by monitoring below website. Hope others also it helps as I got problem after applying Aug firware.
I do not belienve actual hardware like battery or temp measuring spoiled. It is rather software or we call firmware managing these hard ware is having some bug introduced.
Firstly their firmware they should correct in not shutting down Gear watch because some hardware not owkring. They can just put some warning message or notification on watch for user to know it is hot. It should allow to be charged still so that user have more control on watch charging as we know that we charged 1 hour or 2 hour max to get battery running instead some sensor not working due to faulty firmware code.
Hope someone from Samsung Lab see this suggestion & help modify firmware causing battery not charge & early shutdown wrongly.
