Hi Robert. I've moved your question to the correct area, but you'll have to be more specific so we can help. The battery charging graphics tend to be built in to the ROM so if you can state your phone model and if you are on a stock or custom ROM it may help. I'm not sure what the noise is you mention either. Some ROMs have an audio alert when you connect/disconnect the charger, but I'm not familiar with a constant noise when charging

This began with the last download from Android:When the charger is plugged in, a bright green animated graphic displays showing a battery figure with bubbles rising from below. Simultaneously, a muted beep noise starts and repeats every few seconds endlessly.

The phone has been on charge for twelve hours. Charge level is less than 80%.

I muted the phone, shut off everything I saw that looked possibly relevant all to no avail. This has to be industrial sabotage. Nobody could be this dumb.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S5. Model number SM-G900V

Android Version 4.4.4
Baseband Version G900VVRU1ANK7

Kernal version 3.4.0
Fri Jan2 11:44:47 KST 2015
Build Number KTU84P G900V_4.4.4_0033

Se for Android status

Hardware Version G900V 05

Security Software version
MDF v1.0 Release 3
VPN v1.4 Release 2

Whew, if there is anything else you need to know about this ridiculously dumb situation, let me know.

Well, you're not the first one complain the bug.. the phone never reaches the 100% on battery charge after 4.4.4 upgrade.

Unplugging from wall and replugging seemed to have worked.

What fool decided to send out such "upgrades" without testing them? Even by Microsoft standards this was lousy. I went with Android because it was less expensive and didn't have bloatware so I figured it had to be more efficient.
