    Do you mean the Samsung logo?

    What are you expecting to happen with the Volume Up and Power button? You won't get into Recovery or Download mode with that sequence - view the earlier posts for the correct key sequences.

    My gs3 does the same, it turns on normally but as the samsung logo appears then its back to the o2 logo and back to the samsung and it just does that all the time. Ive tried hard reset and still nothing.

    What do you mean by "hard reset" - that you were able to boot into Recovery mode and perform a Factory data reset?
    If that's the case, boot into Recovery mode again and clear the cache.
    If that doesn't help then it's time to reload the OS, or take it to your local O2 store, whichever is easier.

    Volume up, power and HOME. Make sure the phone is off, press and HOLD all three buttons until you see the Samsung logo, then release all three buttons.

    Hi my samsung Galaxy S3 froze and wont start up, i was wondering if i press the "wipe data/ factory reset" would it delete everything on my phone like pictures, contacts, etc...?

    I'm not sure how you can press "wipe data/factory reset" if the phone won't turn on, but if you were able to - yes, it would clear any pictures/videos stored on the internal memory, and would wipe out your contacts, call logs, SMS/MMS, etc.

    If you have your information synced with Google then you'd get your contacts right back after setting up your account again, and your apps would automatically be reinstalled (if you have that enabled), but the rest would be gone.

    Anything saved on your SD card (if you have one) would still be intact.

    hi,

    this happened to me as well. it turns out that SIIIs have a fault relating to something called the IC chip which regulates power from the battery to the phone os and apps. If the IC unit fritzes out, the phone doesn't respond. If this happens (or your SIII is not responding at all to anything) take it to your Samsung service center and they will fix it or replace it if it is still within the warranty period. (24 months from purchase). In the UK, use this Find Service Locations | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG UK

    I've done this and Samsung fixed it, no questions asked.
    good luck!

    If your phone won't boot into Download mode you're pretty much hosed - if you can find someone that offers JTAG services they might be able to recover it.

    There's quite a bit of difference between not being able to turn it on and not being able to get into Recovery mode - which is it?
    If the phone won't turn on at all, what happened to it (dropped; got wet; battery died; etc)?
    What have you already tried (took battery out for a few minutes; charged battery with phone off; saw battery graphic; etc)?

    Jacob,
    With the phone completely off and the charger plugged in, do you get a battery graphic showing the current charge level?
    You'll want to be sure the battery is at least 50% before fiddling around with firmware loading.

    I'd suggest trying to boot the phone in Download mode - if that works, you can use Odin to try to reload the firmware of your choice or the Kies software to reload the stock firmware.

    I'm running into the EXACT same issue! did you just recently update to the latest ROM, as well?

    I upgraded to the latest version of cyanogenmod and it worked great. But then it started running into the same issues - apps started freezing, so I began rebooting it. Then it got stuck on the boot animation. And now it can't even turn on.

    But the red light is still on, if I remove the battery and plug it in to charge.

    Any ideas?

    My phone is having sorta the same problem, except it will randomly try to turn itself on too (of course not making it past the splash screen) and then turn off again. When plugged in I can occasionally get the charging graphic to appear, and when it does, it looks like the battery is near full. I managed to get it into download mode for about 2 seconds, then tried recovery mode, did a cache wipe, and still nothing. this is the 3rd GS3 I've had in just under a year because they keep breaking, and not due to being dropped or anything. Is there anything else to try, or am I outta luck?

    EDIT

    Since I cleared the cache, I can't even get it to the splash screen now.

    Why only two seconds? Did the phone shutdown by itself? Or restart itself?

    If you can get it to stay in Download mode you can try reloading the firmware using the Kies software on your PC.

    It was there for about 2 seconds before shutting off again. Since the Cache wipe I can't get it to do anything, so that means i'm SOL getting it to getting it to stay in Download mode so I can run Kies

    -EDIT-

    Once again, my phone decided to try to turn on by itself, but this time it turned on completely. I'm not trusting that it will work perfectly, though.

    When the phone is off and you plug the charger in, you don't see the little battery graphic which shows that the phone is charging?

    If not, try this - pull the battery, then plug the charger in, then put the battery back in. Now do you see the battery graphic?

    If neither of those cause the phone to show the charging graphic, try a different charger AND cable. If that doesn't make any difference then a visit to your local carrier store is in order.

    Hi I tried the "pull the battery out , then plug the charger in then put battery back in" the red light came on like it was charging so I put the battery back in and the light stayed on for about two mins with the battery then the light went away

    So I went to the AT&T device support center where they said theyd be able to do all they can. Well, all they did was same thing I did. Switch the battery and switch the charger cord. The guy did those two things and said "yeah, you need to go through insurance" he didnt even open up the phone or anything. When I had mentioned that it wouldnt even reboot when I tried pressing the 3 buttons thats apparently when he got the same idea & tried that. When I asked what he thought was wrong I said "so did it just die or what happened?" He said "uhhh yeah it did. Maybe it fried" honestly how'd he know if he didnt check. He was about as useless as an Apple Genius. Smh.
