How To Troubleshoot Charging Issues on LG G4
Here are different ways to troubleshoot charging problems with the battery on LG G4/G4 Plus:
Check Charging Cable
First thing you should do when your device is having charging problem is to check whether the charging cable is working properly. Often its the damaged charging cable that’s the main reason behind the charging issues, but before you decide to purchase a new cable, try charging your LG G4 with a replacement USB cable to see if the problem is indeed with the charging cable or something else is causing the issue. If the new USB cable charges LG G4 normally, then you should buy a new USB cable.
Replace Device Charger
LG G4 comes with the Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 support, however, after several users complained that the AC charger which came with their device isn’t compatible or working with the QuickCharge 2.0. For some reason LG failed to provide a charger which works with the QuickCharge 2.0 support which is causing charging issues on some models. So try charging your device with a charger that is compatible with QuickCharge 2.0 on LG G4.
However, some users are reporting that even after using chargers that are compatible with the QuickCharge 2.0 support failed to take advantage of the fast charging feature on the LG G4. But most of these users are making a mistake of using a third-party non-approved chargers that are not designed to work with the LG G4 QuickCharge 2.0 feature. You can find more information about this issue here.
It is a well known fact that keeping the device screen on or using it during charging slows down the charging process. So don’t use the device while it is plugged in to a power source. Wait until LG G4 is fully charged before using it and also make sure to keep the display off during charging.
LG G4 users have discovered that the LED light keeps flashing during charging and the device vibrates to signal that the charging is complete. You can use Tasker (get it here) to set priority mode interrupts to disable features that could prevent normal charging.
Have Your Device Checked
If none of the above troubleshoot methods worked to fix the LG G4 battery charging issues then the problem may lie with the handset itself. There could be an hardware issue which may be the reason behind the slow or no charging on LG G4. Battery may be damaged, charging port could be broken or out of place due to rough use. Well, in that case you can either take your device to a professional to get it checked and fixed or claim the warranty if it’s still valid to apply for a replacement device.
