    Default Galaxy S3 I9300 : Unresponsive. Help, please

    TO anyone that might help
    Last night, after a nap, my phone's Galaxy S3 international (SO is 4.4.2, un-rootted) screen was lit and showing only what I can describe as static.
    The phone is not respoding. Doesn't reboot, does not show the Samsung logo or anything. Just the lit screen with static.
    I plugged into the computer, and it recognizes and installs the drivers, though it does not connect to the Kies software.
    I left it without the battery overnight and still the same situation.
    Can anyone help?
    thanks in advance

    take out the battery for 10 minutes and put it back
    Go to recovery and clear cache and data

    When you insert the battery does the 'static' screen immediately come on?
    If not, at what point after you press the Power button do you see that screen? Does it make any of the normal boot up sounds?

    Sure sounds like a problem with the display hardware: possibly the screen; possibly the mainboard - hard to say without further experimentation.

    Thanks for replying.
    It does not make the booting sound. The screen comes on after about 2 seconds of pressing power.
    I have tried to hardware reset (up volume + home + power) but just shows the static screen, turns on and then black, and static again, and so forth.

    In this case you need to reflash your firmware

    Actually no,
    It seems that ROM did not match the boot loader, since they go by regions. And guess I needed some other ROM.
    So now it's worse than before. Left it at a tech shop. Hopefully they can resolve the issue.
    They told me they have to open the phone to try and undo it, causing a short or something. Will take more time.

    Just to be clear, when you boot the phone normally it shows the static screen, but when you boot into Download mode everything looks ok?

    Sounds like you need to disable your Antivirus software temporarily.

    Frankly I think someone loaded some bogus 4.4.2 firmware and that's why the normal boot screen was borked.

    And I can't imagine why those guys need to open the phone - they shouldn't have to JTAG it if it's booting into Download mode properly.
