    Default SAMSUNG S3 GT-I9300 doesnt start up

    Hi, I have problém with my S3.

    The phone doesnt start up, the only 2 things which are happenig are:
    1.Logo Samsung Galxy... when i press start button
    2.Icon of battery, frozen without green colour - when i put it on charger

    I have tryed Start and Home and UP or Down Volume button both options work.

    Please suggest what to do, i am afraid that ill loose data (photos, contacts atc).

    THX in advance

    Power, volume up and home should get you into recovery. From there, select clear cache, and then restart the system. See if that works.

    Wiping the cache partition shouldn't cause any data loss.

    Reboot system now, just means you are telling the device to reboot normally into Android.

    Try pulling the battery for about 20 minutes. Then restart.
