All of a sudden it started doing this.....the sound is annoying and of course the screen coming off and on over and over again can't be giving it a good charge.

What's up?

Me and my wife both had this happen on our old junker phones and a battery pull was the order of the day. Not sure on the Note. Couldn't imagine doing a battery pull this beast.

Mine's done this since day one. It does it with both the original charger and with my Qi/Nokia wireless charger. Don't know how to stop it either.

Mine does this on one of my wireless chargers... It doesn't do it on my other, identical, wireless charger and it doesn't do it when I use the original Samsung charger (or random cable lying around). Just the one wireless charger... very odd...

I am suspecting the car charger.

I had a rocket fish charger from best buy in my car. It started doing this to my S4 not too long ago. You had to position the phone just right to get a solid enough contact to get the charger to work.

When I got my Note 4, it did the same thing.

I bought an Anker USB car charger and a standard micro USB cable, problem solved.

It's the two chargers that are just off the shelf chargers from radio shack that don't work. Got home and the fast charger that came with the phone worked fine as well as one from a drawer that's years old. Perplexing since other note 4s can use those chargers

Is it doing this in the car or at home? I have a car charger that does that so I had to buy a different charger.

Have not tried a car charger....it was just two chargers up here at the office...other Note 4's are fine with them but not mine...got home and the fast charger works fine and then I pulled an old charger from years back out and that worked no problem.
