    Default Sprint Galaxy S3 - Display won't turn on

    Just recently, my Sprint GS3 started having a display issue. I would hit the power button to wake it, but screen doesn't turn on. The buttons (Menu and Back) light up, but no screen. Once in a while, I'll get it to come on but it seems kind of random. I was rooted at the time (running Wicked Sensations), but I have reverted to stock and it's still doing it. Any suggestions?

    Something died. Either send it for repair or get a new one. I have had a few of them since launch and haven't had an issue. Sorry for the issue

    If you haven't already, try pulling the battery for a few minutes, then reinsert it and see if it will boot. If not, see if it will boot into recovery.

    Recovery mode is achieved y powering the phone completely off, then pressing and holding "volume UP, power button and the (physical) home button simultaneously. Watching the screen closely, release all 3 buttons as soon as you see the word Samsung. If timed correctly it will boot into recovery in about 10-20 seconds (after releasing).

    If that works, you might try doing a factory reset from within recovery.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
