    I'm trying to fix a Galaxy S3 and my main problem is this:

    White Screen Image

    I think that it's a hardware issue but in the past few hours I've been trying to
    flash the stock rom. Unfortunately I haven't had any luck because I get an error from Odin "There is no PIT partition".

    Odin Error

    Here's what I tried:

    -Odin 3.04, 3.07, 3.09 and 3.11.1
    -4 different USB cables which I plugged into a USB 2.0 port on the back of my motherboard
    -reinstalled the Samsung USB drivers
    -tried to flash on 2 PCs
    -tried to update via KIES but gets stuck on 0% while updating

    KIES is not running while I'm using Odin and I paste the path to the .tar.md5 file in the PAD(for older versions) or AP(for newer versions) tab.
    In both new and old versions Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are checked and everything else is unchecked.
    It doesn't seem that I can get into the recovery or get the phone to boot normally because of the white screen with gray lines but I can get into downloading mode and it shows this:

    -Product name: GT-I9300
    -Custom binary download: No
    -Current binary: Samsung official
    -System status: Custom

    If it's a hardware issue then I know that there is no way to fix it. I still think that something can be done and I hope you guys can give me some advice. Thank you.

    Use Kies but select emergency firmware recovery and follow the on screen instructions

    I don't have a recovery code and when I connect the phone Kies doesn't stop searching for it.

    Take a look on XDA site for the pit file for your device and flash at the same time you flash the FW

    Is there a way to find out if the phone is 16GB or 32GB version ? The phone is not mine (it belongs to a friend). He says that it has 4GB and unfortunately he doesn't have the paperwork or box that came with the phone.

    I don't think there is a way without paperwork or at least IMEI
