Samsung Galaxy S II :: Sudden Drop In Battery Level And Shutdown
May 20, 2012
I recently got a brand new Galaxy S II with a new contract and have been using with a lot of joy. However, recently a problem occurred with the battery in a sense that it sometimes suddenly goes from 30-ish % to 0 instantly, therefore causing my phone to shut down with no warning. Also, after this happened, I cannot just plug in the phone to the charger, because for some reason it does not charge. I have to remove the battery and then put it back in again before I can charge it. This has been happening almost daily and I don't know what the cause is. The phone is not rooted or tampered with in any way.
I just registered on the forum because i have a weird problem. My GSII first shows 'no network service' and it won't change unless i do a reboot. after the reboot my battery went from 40% to 9% It happened 3-4 times in the last 5 days. I already did the latest ics update via kies. the phone is not rooted. I did the hard restart. nothing helped. Here is the picture from the last drop [URL]
Every time my phone reaches around 10% it instantly drops to 3 or 4% then instantly after that to 1%... So basically I have to charge my phone before it gets to 10%. Not that big of a deal, but it is annoying not being able to do anything with it when it's at low battery and I'm away from a charger.
I'm trying to charge my phone before it gets that low from now on so I won't shorten my battery's lifespan so I can't comment on if the issue persist, but I will say that the calibration has made the battery to act less weird as far as dropping fast in certain areas but not others.
I just got this used blackberry bold 9780. At about battery level 30-50%, the battery level will plunge to 1% within minutes. And it will stay at 1% for the rest of the day. Today, the battery indicator was working fine till the battery was about 30%, then the phone just died.
Today my Lumia 1520s battery level suddenly dropped 89% to 81% in 10 minutes, then I made a soft reset and the battery level was 82%. Again after 15 minutes I took a look in the battery level and it was 73%.
I notice in some screen shots that people post that they have a Battery Level Indicator. I have seen these on the graphs from settings/about phone/battery usage.I don't have this indicator. The only time I see a battery level is when charging.
My device started shutting down a couple of weeks ago with no apparent trigger.At first, a simple battery pull would be followed by a successful reboot. As time passed, this was no longer sufficient and I had to do a battery pull while the device was plugged in to a power source, for full reboot.
i had bought sgs 2 about 3 weeks ago..it worked very nice but after 2 week it start automatically shut down at least thrice a day. i also went to samsung costumer center they format my OS and reinstall it. but does effect much now it automatically shut down twice a day what should i do is it a software or hardware problem.
Yesterday I let my battery drop to below 5% for the first time, just to see how long it would take. I noticed that as soon as the phone hit 5% it dropped the screen brightness down so dark I could barely see that it was on. When I opened the notification bar, the brightness control was gone. Plugging in the phone immediately brought it back to a usable brightness and the control returned. Is there a way to disable this?
I've come from an iPhone 3GS where in order to scroll within drop down lists in the browser, you use two fingers to scroll up and down, then 1 finger to make your selection. This doesn't seem to work on the Galaxy S2. Is there another multitouch way to interact with drop down lists?or example, a site requested my date of birth and the drop down list for year started at 1902 and showed the next five years. The only way I could work out how to get to my year of birth was to select the highest number showing which then closed the list, reselect the list and select the highest number showing which then closed the list, reselect the list and select the highest number showing which then closed the list, reselect the list and select the highest number showing which then closed the list and so on and so forth until I got to my year of birth.
On the Galaxy S2 even though the ringtone volume is set to max, initially it starts off quietly and gradually increases in volume. Is there any way of changing this to ring at a constant level instead of starting quietly and gradually getting louder - the number of calls I've missed because of it.
I generally don't have trouble getting through a work day with my S6, but I do wonder whether the Android utilization is high. During a typical day (1 - 2 hours SOT, 14-15 hours off charger), I'm burning about 60%-70% of total battery, 30% of which is Android System (~22%) and Android Kernel (~8%). Google Play and other apps are all typically < 5%. Is this normal, or does this indicate that a factory reset might be a good idea? On previous phones I don't recall core Android being this high (usually <10%).
For the second time in the same week, my 4 with system 5.1.1 just sudden black out. it didn't accept any try for restart or charge .. the screen just black. i pressed home button & the power button then the screen appeared a message says the itunes indicator & on itunes amessage sayaing restore your iphone ... i did & the worked few days & did it again !!!!
I posted about a problem with my battery losing up to 30% battery on reboot but got no answers so am hoping somebody will test their phone for meWhen my battery drops to just below 50%, if I reboot by pressing and holding the power button for about 8 seconds, on reboot, my battery has dropped to as little as 13%, even if there was 48% left prior to rebooting.I originally thought this was happening after tethering but it has turned out, it does it regardless of how much or how little I use the phone and even without tetheringI am on stock 2.3.4 XEU, manufacture unlocked and wondered if some kind soul would be kind enought to see if they can replicate the problem.It needs to be the 9100, complete stock and not rooted really as I am trying to determine whether it's a hardware issue or software issue.
I have Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 version. (Firmware: 2.3.6)Not sure which app update caused it...Suddenly "Facebook" , "Twitter" and few other apps stopped and a deluge of pop-ups of Force Close appeared on my Screen. Even though I select "ForceClose"..they reappear repeatedly. I could not open the TASK Manager by pressing the Menu button. I could not even select "Power-Off" option. Finally I had to shut-down the phone by LongPress of the power button on the right.When restarted....All my contacts are lost. I am not able to import from my SIM card and neither am I able to create new contacts.When try to save a contact..."Unable to Save Contact" is the message I get.All the messages I received and Logs are intact. If I make new calls, its getting logged. Only Contacts has the problem...not able to create/save a contact.I have now:
USB Storage: 2.88GB (Available) Total-11.5GB Device Memory: 0.98 GB
Two weeks back, I updated the Firmware from 2.3.3 to 2.3.6 using Kies. how to get the contacts working.
I have a problem with auto shutdowns on my E90 - started a month ago. I have performed 2x soft reset. Hard reset (*#7370#), format of microSDHC, removal of microSDHC, run clean (no apps, no contacts, no bookmarks, no calendar entries - & no microSDHC) -- and still it shuts down. White screen shows, followed by Nokia Logo, then off.
Tried keeping bluetooth on this morning because someone said they tried that on their E72. This thing has gone off several times already today while searching for the a solution here. Battery maybe
Within a minute or so after my phones removed from the charger it drops to 95%. After that the battery life is normal. I recently updated to 4.3 and it might coincide with this issue but I can't be sure.
The problem is that my battery indicator stays full all the time. Battery life is OK (2-3 days) but is very annoying cause I don't know the battery level. It pass from max level directly to 1line and shortly the phone switch off.I tried 3 kind of firmwares (including last one 410.21.010), charging phone in different ways, different chargers, hard reset etc. and nothing.The phone is new (2 weeks of use) but no warranty.Any solution?
So, I opted to do a restore on the new iPhone 4 from a 3G running iOS4 image. Everything seems to have restored just fine but I've noticed that the battery level percentage isn't being reported on the top of the screen. I've crawled through the settings and can't find anything on changing this.Was wondering if anyone else had run into this or if I'm going to need to bite the bullet and build the phone up from scratch. To be honest this shouldn't be necessary, but could be my only option.
BTW, my reason for doing the restore is simply a matter of data. I have several apps that contain 2 or more years of information. Most have a "save/restore" feature but several don't. Even those that do have their own unique way of saving which will add time to building the new phone.
My battery level was around the 50% mark, and then I went to lok at my gallery and whilst I was viewing pics it dropped straight away to 1% and told me to charge my phone..........So I plug in the charger and it goes straight back to 47%. It has done this twice, why?
I purchased a second hand nexus 5 to find out that the battery indicator is always showing 42% and never updates, regardless of the actual battery charge level. I tried replacing the battery with the one from my brother`s nexus 5, then replaced the usb port board. Also tried:
- rooting - installing twrp 220.127.116.11 - elemenalX 6.0 kernel - Android 6.0.1 - Cache and dalvik wipe - Use the battery until phone shuts down
Although the indicator jumped to 83% and to 54% after some actions which I dont remember. Maybe after cache wipe, not sure.
I have a 2.5 yr old 3GS that has been great however I have started to notice that it shutting off as if the battery has died. My battery meter reads anywhere from 10-20% remaining. What is happening? How can I prolong the battery life? I am also noticing that my key pad is delayed and will be up to 10 characters behind before they catch up. It there something that I can do without restoring the entire phone that will fix some of these problems?
I grabbed my Motorola Defy used about 6 months ago with absolutely nothing wrong with it.I work at a garage, I'm constantly coated in grease.About a month ago the ear speaker stopped working, now calls can only be heard through headphones or speaker phone.
About 2 weeks ago, close to every time I put my Defy in my pocket, it shuts down. Unlock button becomes unresponsive, doesn't power back on until I pull the battery out and put it back in. It seems to do this whenever pressure is applied across the screen while locked.
