Samsung SCH A660 Keeps Shutting Off and Is Slow to Start Up

When starting up, phone now takes over 1 minute to be ready. It was fast when we first got the phone. Now, sometimes it shuts off completely when we flip it shut. It goes dead immediately - it does not go through the regular shutdown sequence so you don't realise it has shut off. Any ideas? Phone is just over 1 year old.

Re: Samsung SCH A660 Keeps Shutting Off and Is Slow to...

I've had my phone awhile, and it has always started slowly. It has probably been dropped to many times, or you have many recorded, downloaded, or contact files which just make it slower to start up. Like a computer. When you shut it off, keep it open until the SAMSUNG logo has disappeared and the screen is black, otherwise it might/will stay on.

Dirty battery contacts can cause this problem. Remove the battery and clean the battery contacts with methylated spirits and the battery contacts in the cell phone.

Samsung behold keeps shutting on and off

Try removing the battery for a few minutes, then connect it again and turn the phone on. If the problem remains, take the phone to your operator for a repair.

My phone keeps say....initial programming needed...and ihave no idea what that means

Dial *228 and press send. Listen for the prompt and press 1 to program your phone. Remain on the call while your phone is programmed (could take up to 2 minutes). Do not hang up until you hear, 'Your phone has been programmed successfully."
If that does not work call 1-800-922-0204

My Samsung SCH-u540 keeps turning on and then shutting off

Sounds like you have a defective battery. If you can use the phone normally with the charger plugged into it that is more than likely the problem. Step one is order a new battery. If that don't solve the problem take it into the store, but only if it's under warranty, otherwise shop for a new one.
