Galaxy S6 won't charge - do Samsung still repair this model?

Hi all,

 

I've had my Galaxy S6 for about 5 years with no problems but last night it wouldn't charge at all. I've tried the reset tips but have had no luck in getting it to charge or turn on. I tried to book a Samsung Repair today but Galaxy S6 isn't an option on the site. Does anyone know if Samsung still repair the S6 and, if so, how do I book a repair?

 

I've tried asking on the live chat but it's been over an hour and I'm still waiting to be connected to an expert. I know we're pretty much all in lockdown at the minute but I'm desperate to get this fixed as I don't have a landline.

 

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me :smiling-face:

buy a wireless charger from amazon and that should keep you going. Samsung are doing repairs but I don't think it will be as regular during to covid 19. I don't see why they couldn't repair it. I a. presuming it's the charging port that's gone. you could try another cable or charging plug, failing that get a wireless charger and that should work.

Thanks for the reply Ash. The charger works on other samsung devices in the house so I think it's the battery in the phone that's having issues unfortunately.

@debs_r if its 5 years old the battery may have given up, its certainly worth trying a wireless charger if you can find one for under £10 as it could be the port that's broken, that's usually the first thing to go. If that doesn't work then it will be a new battery unfortunately 😕

Thanks blueberry_cheesecake and AshS20 for your help!

 

Unfortunately the wireless charger didn't work and Samsung Repair have told me they no longer repair Galaxy S6's. I'm gutted as I'm now without a phone and I've lost all my photos and contacts.

 

I appreciate your help though! 😊
