I recently switched my mom's old phone sim to my old galaxy s8 - it was perfectly fine when I had it aside from a slightly loose charging port. It was working fine with her sim and since me factory restarting it a few days ago, but this morning it just had a red notification light? Plugged it in, tried to hold down the power, the power and up/down volume, and noting. After a while of being plugged in the logo came up, the light color changed to blue and it pulses, and also won't turn on or show anything on the display. Also tried holding down power and down key as I've seen others do, but it hasn't done anything. Any ideas? Appreciate any thoughts!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just tried that and no dice! I have no idea what the issue is. I can't imagine my wonky charging port is causing this? I know how to position it/lay it flat so that it can get charge.
No wireless 😕 I would try the power transfer thing from my current phone but since the s8 is off I can't enable it on that end lol? I could try that! It would likely mean just taking the sim back into my mom's old phone so she has a working one until I can do that. Appreciate the help! I'll keep trying the fixes throughout the day just in case.
