So, your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 keeps on restarting at night? Do not worry, there is no problem with your device. It is just a setting that you need to alter to prevent your Note 10 or Note 10 Plus from restarting automatically at night. Here’s how to fix automatic restart on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus.
Fix automatic restart on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus
The automatic restart is caused by a feature on your Note 10 and Plus called the Auto Restart. This feature has been here for a while and it is kind of a device maintenance feature. You see, prolong usage of any smartphone can cause it to slow down. So, a simple restart can actually make your device last longer. In case you always forget to restart your Note 10, the Auto-Restart option does it for you when you’re sleeping. The default time set by the manufacturer is at 3 AM every Monday. If you do not want this feature for some reason, you can disable it. Here’s how.
Step 1: Go to Settings.
Step 2: Find Device Care and tap on it.
Step 3: Tap on the 3-dot menu icon on the top right corner.
Step 4: Disable Auto Restart.
However, instead of disabling the feature completely, I recommend you configure the time and day as per your preference.
If that didn’t work for you, then there might be some problem with your Note 10 or 10 Plus. Let’s look at the probable solutions.
Solution 1: Reset System Cache
Sometimes a regular but unintended restart might be caused by a corrupted system cache. The right thing to do in this situation is to reset the system cache and hope it fixes the problem.
Step 1: Power off the device.
Step 2: Press and hold the Volume Up and Bixby button and then press and hold the Power button.
Step 3: After you see the Android logo, let go of the buttons.
Step 4: After a couple of seconds, you will get into the recovery menu. Use the Volume buttons to navigate and the Power button to select.
Step 5: Select Wipe Cache Partition. Press the Power button to execute.
Step 6: After its done, select Reboot System Now.
Other Probable Solutions
- Check if there are any pending system updates from Settings > Software Updates.
- Factory Reset. Follow steps 1-4 from Solution 1 but instead of selecting Wipe Cache Partition, select Factory Reset.
- If nothing works, go to the nearest Samsung Service Center.
