Samsung Galaxy S5 Sudden reboots - Solution

It may happen that your Samsung Galaxy S5 suddenly reboots without any reasons. Sometimes you will notice this, when you pull out the smartphone from your pocket and suddenly need to enter the PIN for the SIM card. But also during playing a game on the Samsung Galaxy S5 will suddenly restarts itself for no reason.

This can either be due to a newly installed app that brings the smart phone to crash or due to a defective battery that can no longer provide the required performance. Even a bad firmware can cause crashes. Here are three tips that you can proofe to determine the cause of sudden restarts of the Samsung Galaxy S5.

1. An application is responsible for the sudden reboots.

This can be best checked with the so-called safe mode. Boot your Samsung Galaxy S5 in safe mode, so no third partie apps are loaded by Android. If your phone does not crash in this mode the problem is due to a newly installed app. To launch the Samsung Galaxy S5 in safe mode follow these instructions:

Power off the Samsung Galaxy S5 completely. Then keep the power on/off button pressed to reboot the smartphone. Once the screen is activated and displays the samsung start logo, immediately hold the volume quieter button. Keep it pressed until the sim-pin is queried. At the bottom left you should now find a field with "Safe Mode".

2. The Android operating system is the cause of sudden restarts

This can be the case if, for example, a new firmware update has been installed, but the user has not made a factory reset. We recommend in this case to perform a factory reset on the Samsung Galaxy S5 . This works as follows:

Open from the home screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5 the menu and then navigate to the settings. Here you can scroll down to the section "Backup and Reset". Tap on "Factory data reset". You now get a brief description of the factory reset. Scroll down and tap on the button “Reset device” Follow the wizard step-by-step to perform the full wipe.

Before you do the factory reset, think about backuping of your whole data. Because with a factory reset everything on your phone will be deleted.


3. A defective battery is the reason of unexpected system reboots

To proof if your Samsung galaxy S5 battery is defective,  switch off your smartphone and then take out the battery from the device. Now set the battery on a flat surface. There are two possibilities:

 

 



The battery is flat on the floor --> The battery is ok

 

 


The battery is not flat on the ground, it can be seasawed--> The battery is defective

In this case, the battery must be replaced immediately because the lithium ion battery is inflated. Here you will find a new battery fpr your smartphone

You have now met three possible reasons why your Samsung Galaxy S5 suddenly restarts and what you can do about it. We hope that you have thus get your problem with the restart of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in the handle.

A faulty micro sd card will also cause this problem.

IT IS PROBABLY THE BATTERY. Mine was not "bent" just defective. See if a friend has the same battery, use it in your phone. If it works OK then change the battery (about 12 Euros). Problem solved. Mine started just switching off. Thought it was out of power then noticed that on plugging in the charger it said 53% even 100%! or whatever (never a low number). Then it started turning itself on and off, getting warm etc. None of the tips I read helped. It's the battery slowly breaking up.

Bear under consideration that indications of cheating, for instance those in the <br />above list, still ask you to gather proof the affair. But exactly how should we discover, forever, if she or he happens to be cheating, or if it <br />is really perfectly innocent - and, will we even genuinely wish to understand the truth.<br />There are a few ways in which you may gather evidence <br />cheating; you'll be able to either diy or hire an investigator to <br />get it done for you.<br /><br />Visit my weblog - Investigators services: http://sk.com.sg/
