    My Samsung galaxy alpha its dead and wont turn on, but before this happen sometimes he got hot and turn off but eventually after some minutes pressing volume down + power button + home button he would turn on again. But now he is complete dead. I have sent it in some service store but they said they cant fix it. Can anyone help me, because I don't know what to do.

    P.S this is the first android phone and I started to like it because before I was only using IOS phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! The first thing to try would be a new or different battery, in case the battery was defective and failed suddenly.

    What was the reason why they can't fix it?

    It's probably over-heated and damaged circuitry. Nothing is beyond repair but yours may need a new motherboard. Try another repair shop

    Thank you for your welcoming B. Diddy well I have tried with the new battery but nothing change. They didn't give me an answer why they cant fix it in fact one told me I need to open it and it will cost minimum 60 Euros so it was just to much for me. I hope it was not the motherboard because the cost of fixing it is almost like buying new one. Thank you all for your answers

    Welcome to Android Central! This thread is over a year old, so I doubt the OP still has it or is interested in selling it. Peer-to-peer transactions also shouldn't be done on this part of the forums -- there's a Marketplace forum where you can do that.
