What do you do when you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 that is a week out of the 24 month warranty, it won't charge and the fault (with no fix) is plastered all over many forums.
Some possible relevant or irrelevant context:
The charger port was replaced under warranty 6 months ago, as the phone wasn't charging.
Current the fault:
When you plug the charger into the phone, it detects the charger as a VR device (making a VR setup noise) and loads a black screen with a cross in the bottom right corner.
The phone refuses to charge.
The Vodafone store tested on their charger. Still faulty.
The Vodafone store did a factory reset. Still faulty.

The biggest problem: The device is a week out of warranty and the Vodafone store is going to make me pay any repair. Anybody else experiencing this issue? Or know of a way I could get this fixed under warranty? Thanks for your advice in advance! Phil.
