    Hi, I just had this problem yesterday. When I plug my note 3 to the charger that I got along with the phone it does not charge at all. When I turn off the phone and plug the charger it charges but it vibrates and switches from the first screen to the second and again to the first screen to the second screen over and over again through the charging process, the first screen with a battery and a circle (when something is loading) in the middle and the second screen with the battery showing how much the battery has been charged. When the phone is on and when I am browsing, watching netflix or watching youtube it does not charge when I plug in the charger. I have even used another charger the USB 2.0 for s2-s4 and they have worked before on my note 3 but that doesn't work either. Does anyone have any idea whats wrong with. I am thinking about taking it down to T-mobile and getting it checked out.

    I'd get it replaced. Something seems wrong with the charging port.

    Sounds crazy but try removing your sd card if you have one.

    I've just found the same problem as you guys. BUT In my case, it happended after I connected my note 3 with my pc for awhile. After that the pc cannot connect the note 3 anymore. Moreover, the note 3 cannot be charged. If you tried to remove a baterry for 30 mins, it would help at the first times.After 2-3 hours the problems will happend anyway.

    Did you guys root your devices before the problems occur?
    Or do anything?
    Just wanna know to study this problem, and find the way to fix it together.

    Researching this problem I found out its your amps on your charger. Most are listing 2.0 amp when buying charger off ebay. Seems the phone is sensitive to a charger less then 1.5 amps. Suggest using your oem charger only and if you want secondary charger make sure check the amps before you buy. Hope this helps!

    I had this ongoing issue for a while till it all together quit accepting a charge, sent the phone out to Samsung and they replaced a the charging port, it's been good for a week and today it started to do the same thing again, I can't keep sending this phone out to be repaired every month, clearly the charging port they're using on these phones are faulty

    Exact same issue here. Same whether USB 3 or micro. Annoying. This absolutely should be a recall situation.

    I'm going in to have the phone replaced (again) today. I'll let everyone know what happens. It's getting a little ridiculous. It seems that Samsung makes a great computer but not necessarily a phone. If there are any Samsung reps on this forum, please chime in. This problem has to be fixed. It's caused me approximately 12 hours of downtime just trying to figure out the issue (between both phones, the old Note II, which had the *exact* same issue and now this Note III). It's ridiculous.

    i have heard that in some note3's the charging ports have a defect. when you plug in the cable you can tell if it has a loose feel to it.
    or its the cable. because i just got in a new cable from samsung for a backup and it fits snug to the phone. it's one or the other......

    Thanks for this information. It's for sure a hardware defect. I used to work for Nortel and saw the same thing when we first introduced IP Phones. The power cable connector was slightly too big for the port. This reminds me of that.

    Update - I just replaced my Note 3 (again) yesterday and the guy at the shop told me it was a known issue. He said it should be sorted out by now and was going to follow up with his Samsung rep. The new phone seems to have a better fit for the power cable/connector/port combo. (Mind you, I said that about the Note 2 when it was new as well. I think it's cheap material they're using in the port assembly. It wears down too quickly and then the connector becomes loose).

    I've seen the loose connector on a couple of brands using the micro USB port. I'm thinking is a flawed, weak design. I'd rather have a millimeter thicker phone with a bomb proof mini. The micro is supposed to be able to handle meant more insertion removal cycles, and the cable having the wear parts is a great idea butthey still seem to become loose faster.

    Yep, exactly the same here. I can't imagine the military looking at these devices (though they are). You'd have to design/build a very different form factor for it to be of any use in the field. Personally, I wouldn't take this thing into the field. Hopefully they come up with something more robust in the future (though the trend seems to be the opposite).

    Same issue. Started about a week ago. Left phone to charge over night, kept hearing the vibe switch on and off woke up to find it had only charged to 35% from 20%. ? Now seems to glitch out frequently, while the phone is completely stationary? Very difficult to get it 100%.

    I have the same problem. I plug in the charger that came with phone. As of this week I plug it in, the phone indicates its charging however after a minute it vibrates again and the phone indicates that its not charging. Like I pulled out the charger. I turned the pgone off and plugged the charger in and it charges just fine. Rather perplexing

    Hey I know it may not be related to this article but I'm wondering how you unrooted your phone?

    I am on my 2nd Samsung Note 3 and this one now having issues with recharging. Lightning bolt shows it's charging but never charges. This one is only 6-7 weeks old. The first one would power down by itself and eventually the screen never came back on even though the phone was on and I could hear the sounds when using the touch screen. I am not happy with this phone at all. I am thinking it's time to go back to the IPhone

    Yep. Garbage. I'm on my 2nd as well. Trying to charge it less. Seems connector port on phone gets beat up too quickly.
