    Exclamation Galazy s3 will not turn on after factory reset

    I backed up all of my things from my phone so I could do the factory reset.
    After doing so, I reset the phone. I could not turn it on after so i started looking up answers to similar problems.
    I pushed power, home, and volume and got to the reboot menu and cleared the cashe.
    I then pushed the reboot button and it did something and then got stuck at the ATT symbol with white screen behind it.


    I also tried to install the firmware via kies and it said my device couldn't be updated.
    I don't even know why I did this since its such a hassle to try to fix it....

    please help. i've been working on this for five hours.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try removing the external microSD card, and then reboot. If the card got corrupted, it could cause problems.
