    Welcome to the forums.
    Try rebooting into recovery, and clearing cache. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Are you saying that you tried rebooting into Recovery mode as mentioned in post #2 but that the phone won't go into Recovery mode?

    Can you boot into Download mode? (Just like Recovery mode, but use Volume Down rather than Volume Up.)

    With the phone completely off you press-and-hold the Volume Up + Home + Power buttons, and you don't release them until the Samsung logo is shown?
    What if you use Volume Down + Home + Power - will the phone enter Download mode?

    Hi... I have the same issue... hard reset didn't work, because I can't access to the menu while holding volume up+menu+power (the phone doesn't vibrate either); however I can go into the downloading mode (menu+volume down+power) but while trying to flash it with an original ROM (using Odin), it comes to a Fail download; it happened overnight while charging, woke up and phone was on the black&white Galaxy screen. Is there any way to restore everything, considering that the volume up+menu+power doesn't work?... thanks in advance!
