My NFC  is not working!!!!

I have tried

1. Cleared nfc cache and memory

2. Reset all settings

3. Opened in safe mod and had same issue,  but sometimes allows me to close it,  but doesn't resolve the issue. 

4. I used Samsung members app for diagnose,  and it came up with nfc works as standard, nothing faulty.

So i assume there might be a bug somewhere. Or 2 apps which calls for nfc...i just don't know. 

 

How can i solve it? Nfc is used everywhere and i am out of the game.... samsung please help...

Samsung, do you have a solution for us? Is this a known bug on you last firmware update?

Just posted the same problem. I did a full factory reset that solved the problem for a few days then came back so don't put yourself through the heartache of a reset as it does nothing.

I also have this issue (and have done for months). I have tried everything even the factory reset did nothing for me. I spoke with a phone tech and they said the wireless charging and NFC are linked which often means both breaks if it is a hardware fault and the wireless charging works fine. I assume this is software related. Does anyone have anything from Samsung?

Mine was a hardware issue, i got the NFC module replaced via phone insurance and that fixed it

Interesting, thanks Michael. Did your wireless charging continue to work? Unfortunately I'll need to look at replacing the part myself as it is out of warranty/insurance.

i cant remember 100% if wireless charging worked i dont use it that often but i think it did.  The only issue i could see was the NFC one, the insurance confirmed the module needed replacing, strange no idea how it broke.
