    My s5 wont charge at all but when phone is off and charger is plugged in the 'lightning bolt' flashes at 20 sec intervals but phone does not charge. My husband has a s5 too so I charge my battery in his phone then put it in mine and phone turns on. So it's not the battery or the charger. The port is clean.
    So why won't my phone charge?

    Sounds like a bad charging circuit/port. Try using HIS battery in YOUR phone with HIS charger. See if it will charge. If not, then you will probably need to have your charging port replaced. I read that it's not a huge job to do it and they are relatively cheap to buy (just the port).

    Worst case, your motherboard is damaged (hence the "not charging") and it would be more economical to get a new phone.
