    Default Very Peculiar Problem that has me completely stumped

    Hello Everybody this is my first post ever,
    A couple days ago my year old S3 started to encounter a charging problem
    the interesting thing is:
    When my phone is Completely off it will charge normally both through the wall charger and usb
    When my phone is sleeping and i want to charge it, it charges fine with the usb, but when i use the wall charger it charges EXTREMELY slow(like 5% an hour)

    So, i know its not the charger because it works fine when completely off
    I know its not the outlet because ive tried multiple
    There is just some combination of sleeping mode and wall charger that prevents it from charging
    I honestly am stumped and would appreciate any input or ideas
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums. I think the first thing to try is clearing cache in recovery. See if that helps. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Does the wall charger have a removable USB cable, or is it built in? If it's removable, try using a different cable with the wall charger and see what happens.
