    Default My Samsung Galaxy S3 won't turn on

    This morning I was on my GS3 and I clicked on a game shortcut (megapolis) and was waiting for it to download, as it was downloading the phone froze and then went off. I haven't been able to turn the phone back on again at all, the phone is not responding to anything I try... is there anything I can do?

    Take the battery out for a couple of minutes, put it back and (without turning the phone back on) plug it in to a charger. After a couple of moments you should see the battery graphic, showing the battery charging. Let it charge (regardless of the battery level that it shows) for an hour or so, then try turning it on again and see what happens.

    Camman101,
    Can you try booting into Recovery mode (with the phone completely off, press the Volume Up and Home and Power buttons simultaneously and release them all when you see the splash screen)? If that works you can try clearing the cache and then reboot.
    If the phone just buzzes, can you take the battery out, try turning the phone on, then put the battery back in and try it again.

    Unhappy Re: My Samsung galaxy S3 won't turn on

    I've tried all of that and yet it still doesn't work. It acts like it's turning on but stays on the same screen as if it were turning on with the 4G and the circle lights around out. I've been trying to take out the battery and leave it out then turn it back on and charge it for a bit while turned off and nothings working. I've been trying everything all day

    Natallya,
    If you tried Recovery mode unsuccessfully then it's time to reload the firmware on your phone.
    You can use the Kies software on your PC to do that. If you need help just let us know.

    have you tried a factory reset from within recovery mode? If not, try that before reloading your ROM.

    Raja,
    If we assume that you are familiar with Recovery mode and Download mode and how to get into them correctly, and your phone won't boot into Download mode, then you're SOL. (If you're not really sure how to do that you need to let us know and someone can post a link to the instructions.)

    I saw a guy that advertised JTAG services - that would be about your only option. Sorry.

    Leidy,
    If you take the battery out, wait a couple of minutes and then put it back in, and then plug in the charger, you should see a graphic showing the battery charging. You'll want to wait until it's at least 50% charged before attempting to turn the phone on. You should try booting into Recovery mode and clearing the cache. Then restart the phone and see if it boots normally.

    If it doesn't, you can boot into Recovery mode and perform a Factory Reset and see if that clears up your problem.

    What is "this rom"? And what version of the phone do you have (international, AT&T, etc.)?

    You did all what? What is your specific problem? Try telling us exactly what is happening, and exactly what you've done, and maybe we can help.

    I've tried the recovery method and still nothing, my phone hasn't switched on for about 10-15 hours I've attempted to leave the battery out for an hour or so to see if any difference and nothing, I've also tried to charge it more. I've just plugged into my laptop and nothing has happened whatsoever my laptop hasn't even recognised that it is plugged in, any ideas on what to do now?

    Crystal,
    Can you boot into Download mode? (With the phone completely off, press and hold the Volume Down and Home and Power buttons simultaneously, and when you see the splash screen release them all.)

    I'm not sure what that means - are you saying that nothing comes up on the screen; no LED; no vibration?

    Are you sure the battery is charged? Have you tried a different wall charger AND cable? Do you know someone with an S3 that can charge the battery for you?

    If the battery is fully charged and it won't even power on in Download mode then it's time to take it to your local carrier store.

    my s3 froze and i removed the battery but when it won't turn on again, i tried the things that you said

    *Take the battery out for a couple of minutes, put it back and (without turning the phone back on) plug it in to a charger. After a couple of moments you should see the battery graphic, showing the battery charging. Let it charge (regardless of the battery level that it shows) for an hour or so, then try turning it on again and see what happens.

    *Can you try booting into Recovery mode (with the phone completely off, press the Volume Up and Home and Power buttons simultaneously and release them all when you see the splash screen)? If that works you can try clearing the cache and then reboot.
    If the phone just buzzes, can you take the battery out, try turning the phone on, then put the battery back in and try it again.

    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.
