Fix Overheating On Galaxy S10

How to fix overheating on Galaxy S10 S10e S10 Plus

If you have overheating issue on your Galaxy at this time, follow the steps below to see how to fix it.

Allow your device to cool off

- If you are experiencing overheating issue on Galaxy S10 and the device has become too uncomfortably warm to touch, the first thing that you want to do is to let it cool off. Overheating can have a number of possible reasons and at this early stage, there’s no way you’ll know what’s causing it. To prevent injury to your hand or damage to the device, quickly turn it off and make sure to let it stay that way for at least 30 minutes. This should allow the device to lose heat that may have built up inside. By default, your Galaxy S10 is designed to turn off if internal temperature reaches a certain point to prevent damaging components. If your S10 has not turn off yet at this time, you can manually help it by shutting it down.

After the specified cool down time, turn the phone on again and see if it’s now working normally.

Wipe cache partition

- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
- When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe cache partition’.
- Press Power button to select.
- Press the Volume down key until ‘yes’ is highlighted and press the Power button.
- When the wipe cache partition is complete, “Reboot system now” is highlighted.
- Press the Power key to restart the device.

Perform soft reset

- Press and hold the Power + Volume Down buttons for approximately 12 seconds or until the device power cycles. Note: Allow several seconds for the Maintenance Boot Mode screen to appear.

-From the Maintenance Boot Mode screen, select Normal Boot. Note: Utilize the volume buttons to cycle through the available options and the lower left button (below the volume buttons) to select. Allow up to 90 seconds for the reset to complete.

-If Maintenance Boot Mode screen won’t show, then your device does not have it. Simply wait for the device to power down completely.

Install updates

- Installing updates is often not viewed as a solution to problems by many Android users. The fact is, some bugs are only fixable by installing coding changes brought about updates.

Remove case or cover

- some older Samsung Galaxy devices, using third party case or cover may make them overheat. If you are using a case or cover on your S10, try to remove it and observe the device. If it doesn’t overheat or become too warm without the cover, that must be the cause of the problem.

Uninstall apps

- If overheating on Galaxy S10 only happens when trying to use a particular app, like a game or a streaming app, then avoid using that app for a moment. You don’t necessarily need to remove it from the system. Sometimes, coding changes may result to problems so be sure to update that app first. If that won’t help, you can then go ahead and delete it from the system.

Reset app preferences

- Open Settings app.
- Tap Apps.
- Tap on More settings at the upper right (three-dot icon).
- Select Reset app preferences.
- Restart your S10 and check for the problem.
