Last week, my Samsung Galaxy S3 had a black screen in the morning and refused to turn on. Thinking the battery had not charged correctly, I swapped it for a spare fully charged batter and still it would not come on. Volume down, power and home key is not doing anything.
I left it plugged in for a few days and yesterday I saw the screen displaying a battery icon, but not the normal battery icon you get when its charging, probably its the one you get when you 1st put insert a charging cable to a phone with an empty battery. I hit the Power On key, but it would not come on and the battery icon vanished & has not come back. There are no lights on the phone or noises at all.
I was wondering what your thoughts were on what the issue could be ? I am out of warranty, so I would like to try to estimate the fee before taking it in, I have a kind of backup. It seems Samsung Kies doesn't backup the sim contacts and Samsung Smart Switch I think I need a working Samsung S3 to restore that to.
My phone has never been wet, badly treated or rooted. Thanks for all your assistance.
