    Hi
    I've had a similar problem to this before where my phone wouldn't charge while being turned on, sent phone back into Samsung and got water damage repaired, it is now a couple of months later and now my phone will not charge at all.
    It was charging fine this morning.
    Changed battery and charger and also reset phone back to factory settings, can anybody give me any advice or help on what I should do now?

    Thanks

    Also, I've had my phone for just over a year if that makes a difference

    You've tried a different charger AND different cable?
    If you turn the phone completely off and connect it to the charger does it show the battery graphic and charge normally?
    It's possible that the micro-USB port is messed up, in which case there are two viable options:
    - get a wireless charging solution and bypass the port altogether
    - get the micro-USB port replaced

    I've changed both charger and cable and the micro USB adapter port was changed 2 months ago when I got it repaired yet still this problem

    You failed to mention if the phone will charge when it's completely off. There are quite a few posts about the phone not charging properly when it's turned on, but charging normally when it's off, which leads me to believe that the hardware is ok (micro-USB port, charging circuit) but that there's some weird firmware bug preventing the phone from charging.

    If your phone charges normally when it's off, that's at least a workaround.

    If it doesn't charge at all then it's time to get an external battery charger and swap batteries, or get it repaired.
