    Amazon is awesome with returns. The third party vendor that delivered it through Amazon might not be, but I am going to chase them :-)

    Right odin doesnt work apparently i dont have a pit partition? Whatever that is? So i have gone back top basics...... i have managed to get samsung kies to recognize my phone by using a upgrade and initialize function (this prompted me to upgrade samsung kies). It asks for you model number and serial number and downloads the latest firmware.

    I believe is a positive step as at least the PC/Laptop is now recognising the phone in some way and its using the approved (by samsung) method of restoring.

    This should take approx 1hr to do so.

    I will report back with the findings..Thanks

    After doing a bit of research would reloading firmware using odin be of any benefit? I cant get into factory reset i.e home power and vol up but i can get into custom firmware load so use odin and load original firmware?

    nope it doesnt recognise the phone even though it has just downloaded the update that corresponds with the attached phone :s......

    ok one more thing to try/check need to makesure i have drivers installed for this phone so attach anothers3 and load driver details..

    if that doesnt work back to odin i guess...the problem with kies is when it kicks you and says unsuccesful it deletes the temporary download of the firmware so every attempt requires a fresh download of the stock firmware 8minutes each time

    Well have you thought about flashing a new ROM on there with Odin and then going back to stock?

    Nooooo..no suggestions from me on that, I don't root or anything.

    Let's get you to the right place.

    Are you using the International version of the phone? What country are you in?

    There have been a number of different problems discussed in this thread, so saying "the same problem" doesn't really give us much info. If you phone is completely dead, and it's not because of something you did (e.g., flashing a ROM), you need to contact Samsung support in your country and find out how to send your phone in for warranty repair.

    I'm having an issue where my galaxy s3 won't turn on at all. It won't even show the startup logo, just a black screen. I've tried charging it, but the LCD light doesn't come on and it still doesn't start up. I've even tried rebooting it: holding down the power button, volume up button, and the menu button at the same time, still nothing. It was working fine today. The battery was a little low, but when I went to charge it that's when I realized it wouldn't start. Please help. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    First question: Did you attempt to root the phone or flash a ROM?

    If the answer is no, I think your only real recourse is to take the phone back to where you bought it, or return it to Samsung for repair.

    If you have the international version, you may have succumbed to the bug that is causing a small number of phones to die. Samsung will replace those phones under warranty. Wish there were a better answer.

    It's certainly possible that the battery failed. Try removing the battery and plugging the charger in. I think the red LED should light up if the phone is OK. It's also possible the charger or cable are bad, but unless the battery was already completely dead that wouldn't prevent the phone from booting.

    Here is a video of my daughter's s3 that decided to just die today. It will not power on.... it will not go into recovery mode, but it will act like it will let me put a custom os on it.

    Couldn't Sprint put the 4.1.2 updated os on the phone from here and potentially get my daughter's phone operating again?

    My suggestion would be to boot into recovery mode and do a factory reset. If hat doesn' work, let us know and we'll try something else.

    It looks to me like that phone has been rooted already. If so, I think Sprint is unlikely to be willing to do much for you. You might want to try the steps in his thread to bring it back to completely stock: [UPDATED 12/30/2012][Sprint Only]UnRoot and Return to stock

    But first I suggest reposting your question and video in the Sprint Rooting subforum and see what the experts say: http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...ing-roms-hacks

    1) the phone has never been rooted. It's completely stock out of the box from Best Buy.

    2) the phone won't go into recovery has the video shows.

    I don't know how you would ever get to that screen on a bone stock GS3. How old is the phone? If it's nearly new, I'd take it back to Best Buy and see what they say.

    You get to that screen by pressing the volume down, power and home button at the same time. I found it by accident when volume up, power, and home didnt get me into recovery to hard reset the phone.

    We activated the phone fresh out of the box on December 20th. So I guess I'm just going to get Sprint to give us another one.

    Yesterday I used the 4.2.2 rom but did not like either slim line and carbon and tried to go back to 4.1.2, something I found out was that my sd card wasn't working properly and did not save my 4.1.2 firmware so I used a new one but forgot to save the firmware to clock mod so I had to recure to odin and when I used odin it bricked, it didn't work even though the odin said it was successful installed it didn't work tried full recovery I even tried to use the slim and carbon rom from external sd again and nothing, I then removed the sd card and went to master recovery and erased cache, clavick I believe it said and all I could erase then rebooted, with the sd card inserted I could not erase any memory, it just work for me, I was dead worried, I hope this work for some of you.
