Knowing this makes it easier to avoid repeating the same mistake that might have contributed to the current issue in the future. So don’t be in a hurry.
Why Is My Tecno Phone Not Charging?
The main reason why your phone refuses to charge, aside from a faulty charging adaptor and the USB cable, is frequent charging. Frequently charging your phone is unhealthy for the “life circle” of your battery, making it die faster than usual. If the battery dies the phone won’t charge and even if the indicating charging bar pops up, it won’t increase its bars. But that is not all.
Charging your Tecno phone at every opportunity makes the charging port weak, thereby creating unsteady contact between a charger and the phone during charging. If you ever experience charging your phone for hours without much increase in the battery percentage, charging your phone frequently is likely the reason.
Generally, these are the main reasons why your phone stopped charging, charges slow, or discharges. Whether it is Tecno Camon 15 or spark 7, Camon 16 or Pouvoir 4 Pro, one ore more of the following reasons might be responsible.
Contact with water or other liquid. Don’t underestimate the corrosive power of water. Once it is unattended to in due time, it will cost you your charging port.
Exposure to dust or dirt without thorough cleaning – dust and dirt might at as a barrier to the charging port terminals and the USB charging cable.
Faulty charger and USB cable.
A dead battery – The phone won’t charge in the battery is dead
But I Say To Thee: “Thou Shall Not Charge Thy Phone Too Often”
What Should I Do If My Tecno Phone Charger Is Plugged In But Is Not Charging?
Depending on the model of the phone and what caused the charging problem, you might have a good technician fix it for you. But not so fast. Here is what you can do first.
NB: It is highly recommended for you to check your charger, USB cable, and electric outlet to ensure that they are working well before you proceed.
Tecno Phone Charging Problems And Their Solutions
For A Non-technician
It is alright to feel pessimistic at this stage. There is a bit of optimism in you right now, search for it and proceed with these steps.
Change the charger and USB cable for a start. At this point, we assume that you are sure the electric wall outlet and any extension attached to it are working.
If the phone charge slowly, fake charges, or discharges while a charger is plugged in, changing the charger and the USB cable should fix it. Learning how to read and understand a charger’s charging capacity will help determine the best charger for your phone.
Switch electric source of power. Actually, this is the first recommendation from the official Tecno calcare website.
Clean the charging port thoroughly. You might want to do this with a toothbrush and then keep the phone’s charging port area in a hot place to dry out any possible water.
Check The Battery. If the battery is dead, the phone won’t turn on and won’t charge. If a charger is plugged in, it might not even indicate charging. To do this, search for videos on how to remove the back cover of your phone model on YouTube and then follow the process in the video. Have the battery replaced if you are convinced that it is the cause of the charging problem.
Allow 30 Min Before Your Conclusion. Just plug in a good charger to the phone and leave it this long. In some cases when the phone is undercharged, it might take a while before the battery charge up.

If this is beyond the user, then you should not assume that this is all too easy. Follow these steps.
Check the battery voltage with a multimeter just to make sure it is not a battery problem. If it reads below 0.5mAh, try and boost it up and see if it will allow charging. It might be necessary to replace the battery only if the charging port is working fine and the battery won’t charge back up. The picture below displays the range you would set your multimeter on in order to read a battery.
Replace the Charging Port. In most Tecno phones, simply unplugging the daughterboard (down panel) where the charging port is located and plugging a new one solves the charging issue. However, In some other Tecno phone models, you will have to remove the charging port and replace it directly. If you are having any problem with this or one of the terminals pulls off the board, you can find assistance here.
Make a jumper connection where charging terminals pull off the board. To do this, you have to understand, at least, the GND and VBUS (VCHRG) notations on the board. Check the image below for more detail and do let me know with the comment field below. If you have any questions regarding creating jumper connections and notations.

Maintain A Good Charging Habit For Your Tecno Phone
Not all chargers are healthy for your phone and not all USB cable you should plug-in. If possible, use the original charger that was packaged with the phone when it was purchased. The charging port in the phone needs constant cleaning, it doesn’t cost anything to do this. You should not just look out for dirt, also check if there is any liquid stuff around it. Here is why

But sweat from your thigh on a hot sunny day might penetrate through your pocket and find its way right inside your charging port. For this reason, always check the charging port for water contact before charging – Tecno Phone Charging Problems And Their Solutions.
When it comes to hanging problems, most tecno android phones are guilty of this one sin. From Tecno k7 to Tecno w4, the hanging problem is one issue one should be concerned with. What is the cause of tecno phone haging problems? What is the solution to the issue? How To Stop Tecno Phone From Hanging
Let us understand the basic thing about this issue. The hanging problem can either be progressive unresponsive or totally unresponsive. This means that the phone may hang, work for a time, and then hang over and over again. However it is, it started somewhere. What is the cause of it?
Why Does My Tecno Phone Hang?
There are a few reasons why your Tecno phone hangs. They are mentioned below.
When the storage space of your Tecno phone is almost filled up, it is likely to have the hanging problem. As you know, most Tecno phones have low storage space and unless an external storage device is attached, it is likely to fill up really fast. Games and apps, media files such as music, videos, and pictures are what usually occupy your phone’s storage space.
Using the phone for so long especially operating high-end games and apps is another well-known reason for the hanging problem. It is never a good idea to use your phone for high-end games and apps for long. It makes the phone heat up, runs slow, and eventually freeze up.
How To Stop Tecno Phone From Hanging
Give your phone space
Uninstall unnecessary high-end games and apps
delete unnecessary media files – videos, music, and pictures
Restart the phone
Factory reset the phone as your last option.
Hanging issue is a general problem for all phones, regardless of the make and brand of the device. However, the same method is used in fixing it for all phones. I hope that this post is helpful.

Let us get started.
Tecno Over-heating Problem
Tecno Phones Runs Slow, Lags Or Hangs
Phone Operating Itself
Battery Drains Fast
The Phone Won’t Turn On
Tecno Phone Charges Slow
Running Out Of Storage Space
Can’t Install Apps
Fingerprint set-up And Recognition Problem

Note: If you are skeptical about this, have a phone technician fix your phone. In the process of trying out these solutions, a double-minded person might end up damaging a phone even more. It is also important to read and understand the steps provided for each solution completely before you proceed.
1. Tecno Phone Over-heating Problem
This is one very obvious issue with Android phones of which Tecno phones are not exempted. The phone feels so hot when operating or charging. The heat generated by the phone is more than the usual rise in temperature for every phone when being operated or charged. In some cases, depending on the severity of the heat, the phone can freeze up, shut down, and then boot itself of (restart). To find a solution to the overheating problem, it will be so much helpful to know why a phone over-heat.
Why Does My Tecno Phone Over-Heat?
There are many factors responsible for this issue. One notable reason high-end games and apps. When a few of them installed on your device and operate on them for more than a few minutes the phone begins to heat up. High-end games and apps are usually those with large file sizes and require a lot from the phone to process their data. Don’t let me mention Call of Duty andPES 2020 as a few examples.
Another reason why a phone over-heat is multitasking the phone. This involves opening too many apps without closing them from the app tray. Really, this is supposed to be one cool feature of Android as it allows users to switch within phone apps easily.
partial contact between a charger and the phone’s charging port during charging caused this issue also. If this is the case, you might notice some sparkling light from the charging port if you observe closely when charging in a dark place. In a quiet environment, you might hear some sort of low noise from the charging port indicating partial contact charging. Since we are considering Tecno Phones Problems And Solutions on the page, what is the solution to this issue?
Stop the phone overheating today
Solution To Phone Over-heating Issue
Since high-end games and apps are one main reason for over-heating, it only makes sense to uninstall some and reduce the amount of time spent on them. Try not to multitask your phone, always completely closing every background apps once in every few hours. Playing music with your device while the torchlight, Bluetooth, and data are turned on, and perhaps, at the same time browsing the internet will only make things worse. Do one or two at a time. Do not continue using a charger you suspect makes your phone het up during charging.
2. Tecno Phones Runs Slow, Lags Or Hangs
This just another Tecno Phone Problem that needs a solution. When a phone hangs, it is quite different from when it runs slow. In most Tecno phones, when the phone freezes, it remained unresponsive until the battery completely drains or the battery is removed, in the case of removable batteries. On the other hand, if the phone runs slow, you will still be able to operate it. What are the causes of this issue?
Why Does My Tecno Phones Runs Slow, Lags Or Hangs
The major cause of this problem is insufficient storage space, Either the ROM or RAM. The ROM Space is responsible for storing media files such as videos, audio, and images on your device. If the ROM internal storage space of your device is 32gig, for example, this storage space will keep reducing with every media file you store on the phone. The RAM space is meant for apps and games installation and its storage space is usually smaller than the ROM space. The more apps and games you install, the more the RAM space reduces.
As you keep installing apps and games on your device and the RA space is running out, the phone might start malfunctioning. This is also true if you keep downloading or transferring too many media files to the device. Some of the funny behaviors you should expect from the phone under this circumstance are hanging, lagging, and running slow.
When an object such as a phone or a TV remote controller is placed on top of your phone screen for a long period of time, you may likely experience the hanging problem.
My Phone Is Running Slow, What Should I Do?
To prevent your phone from running slow, freezing or lagging, try one or more of the following.
Close all running background apps from the background app tray
Uninstall some games and apps to free up RAM space
Delete some media files from the phone to free up ROM space
Restart the phone after trying out any of the steps above
Avoid placing objects on top of the phone screen
To help you keep your files safe and accessible, store important files in your Google account and delete them from your device. This process is made easy with the default PHOTO app on most android phones.
NOTE: If the steps above fail to solve the problems, then factory reset the phone as your last option. Usually, factory resetting a phone corrects a whole lot of other issues the phone might have at the cost of losing your media files, contacts stored on your phone memory, games, and apps.
3. Phone Operating Itself
Admittedly, this is rare in most Tecno phones. A user with a phone that has this problem often experience the phone operating itself, sometimes making calls without being noticed. To add to this, some parts of the screen might not respond to touch, making it hard to end a call, make a call, send a text, and perform other tasks with the phone. This automatic action is called ghost touch. But why do ghost touches happen?
This occurs usually and obviously when the phone’s touchpad is cracked, but not in all cases. sometimes, the crack is not that all obvious. It could just be a little crack at the under part of the touchpad that is glued to the main screen. In this case, the touchpad looks good and unbroken but still won’t work properly. What can be done about this?
How To Fix Ghost Touch On Android Phone
Restart the phone and check if the phone touch screen is still pressing itself
Clean the phone touchpad thoroughly with a clean rag
Use an optimization app to clear all junk files from the phone
Restart the phone again
Do a factory reset if the problem is not solved
Restarting the phone in line with the step mentioned above is very necessary. In some phones, the automatic touch problem will start if the phone is used over a long time and becomes hot. restarting it allows it to cool off and refresh.
4. Tecno Phones Battery Drains Fast
This problem really does not happen immediately after purchase and there is nothing unusual about a 2-year-old Tecno phone battery draining fast. They are not made to serve forever. In every battery-powered device, the longer the battery serves, the weaker its power becomes and Tecno phones are not exceptions. The abnormal case is when the battery of a newly purchased Tecno phone drains fast.
Unhealthy use of a phone and frequent charging are the major contributors to this issue. When a phone is multitasked with all the high-end games and apps being operated frequently without allowing the phone a breathing space tecno phones battery draining fast will be the next story to tell.
A popular way of solving this problem is purchasing a new battery, but this is not a reliable option as batteries purchased in the phone shops are hardly as strong as the original that comes with the phone. What can you do?
How Do You Fix A Tecno Phone Battery That Drains So Very Fast
Don’t overuse the phone
Reduce the brightness of the screen
Reduce the screen sleep time in settings >> Display >> Sleep
Spend less time on apps and games that consume battery
Don’t charge at every opportunity
Turn off Bluetooth, wifi, data, and flashlight off when not in use
Get a battery managing app
Disable Notifications that are not important
5. The Phone Won’t Turn On
If the phone won’t turn on, it could be the fault of the battery. The battery might be completely bad and unusable or undercharged. if this is the reason why the phone seems dead, it will never turn on if nothing is done about it. The power key is another cause of this issue. It might seem good and even click as normal when it is pressed but may still be the reason for this issue. Usually, when it gets in contact with water, it gets rust. The corrosion caused by the water prevents the power key from turning the phone on.
How To Fix Dead Phone Problem
Remove and reinsert the battery and then try and notice if any difference
Connect a charger and allow the phone to charge for 10 minutes. When a battery goes undercharged, it takes some time to boost up. If you are unsure if the charger and cable are in good working condition, have it changed. Also, make sure that the phone’s charging port is working
Replace the battery after attempting the 2 steps above to be sure it is not a battery problem
Press the power key a little harder
This is as far as you can go. Contact a phone technician for further assistance. However, it is wise to protect your phone from getting contact with water as it can completely damage a phone – dead phone solution.
6. Tecno Phone Android Charges Slow
Almost every user out there will turn to a new charger to have this problem solved. But what if the problem just won’t go away after trying many different chargers? Well, you are not helpless. Try these suggestions
Remove and reinsert the battery if the battery is removable
Not Insert a charger and observe
Turn the phone off and insert the charger to observe
