Question about Samsung SCH-a930 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Power cycling My phone won't stop powering on and off. It turns on, acts like it is loading and then restarts the whole thing over again. The only way I can get it to stop is to take out the battery. Is there anything I can do? I took it to Verizon to see if they could check the battery and they just said I need a new phone. I like this phone and all my contact info will be lost. Please help.

    Mine is doing the same thing and I just posted. It started doing this when I attempted to forward a video message. My video memory was full prior to receiving this message and I suspect the lack of space may be contributing to the problem.

    i have this same problem is there any way to fix it

    My phone is now doing the same thing. The ironic thing is that I was actually about to write down all my contacts just incase something happened to my phone. Well, too late now... or is it? Anyone else find a solution to this problem. I tried the method above but to no avail. Even with the battery out of it, as soon as I connect it to the charger the power cycling starts up again and continues to do so even when I throw the battery back in. I too can not lose all my contact info or is that even a possibility now?

I had the same problem. Actually, it began about thirty minutes prior to me posting this solution. Of course this may not work for you but it worked for me.
My problem began after I plugged my phone into my computer. I hadn't done anything to it. I went to turn it on and it entered the seemingly endless restart cycle. It likely had something to do with being plugged into my computer. I toyed with the battery and whatnot but to no avail. Eventually, I took the battery out and put the phone on AC power instead. It made the cycle shorter for some reason but did not solve it.
I then put the battery back and put the phone on AC power. I powered on the phone and it went to the initial loading screen. After that, it went to the charging screen which was weird because my phone should have been at 100%. From there, it proceeded to power on competely. End of problem.
I will note that I also had my USB sync cable plugged into my phone although it was not plugged into the computer. The charger was plugged into the adapter port on the sync cable but I suspect you'll get the same result without it.

My at&t pantech burst keeps restarting. how can i get it to turn on and not restart?

You have to reset your whole phone. Hold the power button and the volume button down at the same time until Pantech pops up on the screen and when it does let go of the power button but keep holding the down volume button down. When the triangle pops up let go of the volume button and press the menu button. Use the volume button to scroll down to wipe data. Hit the home key.. scroll down again to yes and hit the home key. Hit the home key again on reboot system. That's it ! :)

My Samsung A707 acts like it's trying to restart continuously. It gets 80% through the start up (based on progress bar on bottom of display) and then restarts again.

This type of thing usually happens when your phone is connected to charger that provides insufficient or far more power that is required to charge your phone.........but if your phone is not connected to charger then first put a piece of paper or any thin material with your battery in order to get it more closer to jumper(the terminals at phone where battery is to be conected) if the problem still exists then try to change your battery.

Vibrate stopped working

Pls check your battery power if it has gone out. If the battery has gone out then phone might not be able to draw enough power from it when vibration mode is on.

My Pantech c150 just keeps restarting

Try performing a hard-reset. Take the battery out of the phone for at least a minute and hold down the power button for at least ten seconds afterwards. Replace the battery and turn the phone on, and it will have hopefully cleared up the problem.
