    Hello Everyone,

    Any help on the issue will be much appreciated. I have purchased Samsung S3 2 months back and suddenly it has started acting very weird.
    Below is the exact sequence of events

    1. S Voice app popped up on its own and started giving some weird messages.
    2. After that the S3 was not getting charged when connected to the power plug or to the laptop through USB
    3. I got the android symbol saying it is downloading something and do not turn off, with something about factory
    4. The symbol automatically went away after a few minutes
    5. Since there was no battery the phone got switched off. but suddenly it restarts on its own and then because of low battery switches off.
    5. When the phone is in on mode, it shows "Connected to Dock"

    I am not sure what to do...If anyone has any clue. please help.

    PS:- I have tried charging from multiple chargers, USB cables etc. with no effect.

    Welcome to the forums!
    It sounds like a bad USB port. Did you buy this new at a retailer?

    Hi there, yes sadly I am having similar problems. It just won't charge. My S3 charges for a few minutes then goes off.
    I might have to charge the battery separately, I believe the cable is of very low quality.
