    My galaxy s5 was working fine until recently it no longer can connect to WiFi.

    When in the WiFi settings screen and sliding the on/off switch to on it goes to on and turns green but is a faded or more translucent than before and never connects to WiFi, upon leaving the screen and returning to WiFi settings the on/off is back to off. When in the pull down settings and pressing the WiFi button there is the same result, green but faded and stuck never turns on.

    I have already looked on this forum and elsewhere for a solution and nothing has helped.

    Things I have tried:

    turning the phone off then on.

    removing the battery

    resetting both my modem and my router

    returning to other known networks

    factory resetting the phone

    now I have a reset phone that can't update and I lost most of my files... Still no WiFi

    someone pls halp

    What is your model and your exact firmware details as per #1.2 and #1.8 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide?

    You might have to reflash your phone or even worse, replace the motherboard/modem if damaged.
