    Hello fellows,
    I've got a bit of a problem. A couple of weeks ago my Galaxy S3 was struggling to turn back on. It just couldn't go past the loading Samsung logo and when I tried pulling the battery out and turning it on again, it got even worse. When turning it on now I just get this weird screen like on a analog telly when there's no signal (there should be an image of it somewhere in this post). I have tried all of the possible ways to reset it, but nothing seems to be working (tried hard reset etc). So I'm wondering if it's possible to get it back working again via USB using my PC. When I do connect it to my PC, it does regonice it in some way (also an image should somewhere in this post ). A lot of thanks in advance if you happen to know what's the problem.
    Here's my phones specifications if they're necessary:
    Model: GT-I9300
    FCC ID: A3LGTI9300A
    SSN: -I9300GSMH
    Bought in Estonia, Europe.

    Welcome to the Forums, and thank you for the very clear photos.

    This does not look good. It looks to me like a hardware problem. Are you unable to enter Recovery Mode? You mention a hard reset, but do you mean that you did one, and that it had no effect...or that you were unable to do one?

    Thank you for the quick reply.
    No, i can't acces the recovery mode. Every button combination or what ever I use on it. It's just like that, like on the photo.

    It looks like screen failure to me, but I could be wrong. It may be worth seeking advice in the Samsung Galaxy S3 forum before deciding what to do. If there is a fix, the S3 owners will probably know.
