    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.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
