Solved: Samsung Wireless Fast Charging Paused


I’ve been using a Samsung Fast Charge wireless charger with my Samsung Galaxy S8 for a while now, and really love the convenience of it.

After using the wireless charger for several months, all of a sudden, one day it stopped working …

I put my phone down on the wireless charger and it would start charging for a few seconds and then stop with the message “paused” on the screen. This cycle would repeat endlessly and the phone would never charge.

Here is what worked for me.

Place the phone onto the wireless charger and move it up and down over the charger. Take it off the charger and repeat several times. Now check if the ‘paused’ issue has been resolved.

Here’s a video I found which explains the fix in more detail.

If this fixes the Wireless Charging Paused issue for you, let me know in the comments below. Or if you have found any other solutions that work, feel free to post them below.

  1. People need to realize that not all wireless chargers are “fast wireless chargers”. So, if your phone is set on fast wireless charge setting for fast capable but your wireless charger is incompatible with fast wireless option, you will get paused message. In Note 10 plus, you should either get a Note 10 plus compatible fast wireless charger or go to settings and turn off fast wireless charge option.
