New Battery, Grey With Yellow Triangle.
Hey guys, Jordan here,
I have a galaxy S3, was on my way to the lake plugged my phone into the car and it beeped at me saying this wasn't a correct charger for my phone.
I found that a little weird but didn't dwell to long.
It died at the lake, when I got home I plugged it in and didn't look at it again till the next morning.
It wouldn't turn on, nothing at all, however if I unplugged it and plugged it back in (any charger) it would beep show a battery with no power then a yellow triangle with a picture of the battery with a line through it.
I ordered a new battery from Samsung dealer here in Canada.
When the battery arrived I plugged it in and let it charge over night. Now it still showed that same screen with the battery and yellow triangle, however in the morning the phone actually turned on. HOWEVER, the battery in the top right hand corner was blinking and it warned me yet again it could not charge. The battery depleted from 25 to almost 0 and I'm back with the same battery empty yellow Triangle syndrome as before.
Some interesting points.
1. The phone will not under any circumstance turn on when plugged in. Just the battery with yellow triangle.
2. The phone does seem to charge the new battery while turned off, although slowly.
3. If I unplug the phone it will turn on with whatever power the battery has with no warnings. As soon as I plug it in, the battery indicator starts flashing and I get the warning message saying wrong charger or battery.
Thanks for any insight you guys can provide.
