    Oh help! I turned my Samsung Galaxy S3 on earlier today and got a battery charge screen with a red light in the upper left corner. The charge had been very low the last time I used it, and so I figured I just had to charge it but was surprised that it didn't let me use the phone while charging. Now, many hours later, the battery charge screen is about 3/4 green and is simply stuck on this screen. The five little dots underneath the battery pic keep lighting up in sequence, so the phone appears to be charging. But I can't get to any other screen, can't turn the phone off (it turns off automatically) and I tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, with no change. I have tried two chargers, and I know that the chargers are working because they are working for my husband's identical phone. I read on another site that I could reboot the phone by holding down the center bottom button for 10-20 seconds, but this also does nothing. Does anyone have any ideas on what the solution might be? Thanks.

    It does that when the phone is off and charging. Keep it in the charger and hold the power button until it comes on

    Thanks! I did get it to work eventually by holding the power button on for a reaaaally long time -- way longer than I had tried previously. This is the first time I've ever even seen this charge screen since I got the phone several months ago.

    you should have to hold it for toooo long though, sometimes if it doesnt come on, I let go and hold the power button again and it usually turns on
