    I just got a galaxy s3 last night by the original owner, they didn't delete there personal information, so I did a factory reset, since then LED light wont turn on to show its taking a charge. The only way I can get it to do anything it to take out the battery, drain the excess power by pressing the power button,& replacing the battery. Instantly it vibrates once, and flashes to a black screen. In the upper left hand corner in blue it says Recovery Booting... after that it just shuts off
    Please help

    Maybe Factory Reset corrupted System data :-) Or Factory Reset is unusable :-) Is this phone rooted? If yes, then owner deleted factory reset data :-(

    Return it to whoever you got it from, assuming that you bought it. If they opted for the carrier extended warranty then it should be covered by the carrier
