    It's the phone that is the problem, NOT the charger.

    I found the solution for my Note 5 that started pausing at start of wirelessly charging and then the
    blue blinking light. It worked flawlessly for more than a year before this pausing glitch.
    I tried all the solutions online people suggested but none worked.
    The one that did work for me was clearing the cache a second time. I had already tried it earlier, but gave it another try and voila, the second time I cleared the cache it now charges wirelessly as it did before.
    BTW, I use an Otterbox cover on my phone and it charges fine through it.

    Hope it works for you.

    For me, the problem was simply in the Samsung cord I was using. I tried another cord and the blinking light/charging paused has not happened in over a year.

    I constantly have this same problem.

    I use 2 fixes.

    1. Turn off the power, wait about 20 seconds, make sure the phone is centered. Turn the power back on. This can be hit or miss, it can take about 3 tries

    2. Change the phone position from portrait to landscape. This always works.

    I'm glad to see, I'm not the only one with this issue.
