Question about Samsung Galaxy S II

1 Answer

My galaxy s2 turns itself off all the time. Have to take battery out/put back in to restart. Help.

Starting doing this last year 1 to 2 X per week. Now it happens 3-4 Xs per hour. IF I take the battery out for a couple of seconds and replace then put it back in, it works for a while. Ideas?

This problem can be on your battery to check that you can move your phone in you hand so hard if it turn itself off so you must change another battery, Else you have a problem in the charging circuit.

You may want to visit Samsung's website to check the warranty coverage of the tablet. Usually, since they are slightly used, it should still be covered by warranty.

SOURCE: my new samsung galaxy ace has a VERY short battery

"If your battery sat on the shelf for a year, then it has deterioated enough to where it would only hold 1/ 2 to 2/ 3 the original charge."

galaxy ace is relatively new. nothing you say makes sense.

if you don't use data service, you can switch to gsm (not 3g) to preserve battery life. works with me across devices.

I also have the exact same problem.
However, you don't need to take out the battery to re-power on the phone. Just hold the power button for a longer time (about 10 seconds). The screen will light up and the device will reboot.

SOURCE: Need to reset samsung galaxy s2 phone. Can't

If you want to try a simple solution, Go to Settings, Wireless and Networks, then Turn on "Airplane Mode" wait until you see an airplane on the top status bar of your phone... then Turn OFF "Airplane mode"
If that doesn't work, and you want to reset your phone, take it to the place you bought it or any place that is on your carrier.

How can I get my Samsung Galaxy Tablet to turn on. The battery is fully charged.


There is usually a method such as holding the on button for a longer period of time. If it is easy to do the other thing that I've found with all sorts of "smart" devices which turn "not-so-smart" is to remove the battery for a minute or so, then put it back in. Many times the unit will turn on as soon as the battery is reinstalled and work correctly again after that. Last ditch effort, unless someone knows about the Galaxy, is a hard reset, there may be a reset button somewhere on the unit, I don't think the Galaxy has a reset button. If the unit still does not turn on it may need servicing.
1. Try the on button for 15 - 20 seconds if you know it is charged
2. Try charging for an hour or two then the 15-20 second hold on button, #1 above.
3. Removed battery (I'd measure the battery voltage while I have it out) wait ~1 - 2 minutes & reinstall the battery. If it doesn't turn on by itself try #1.
4. Nothing works start a service ticket with Samsung, URL:
http://support-us.samsung.com
You might try searching there as well for an answer to see if there's anything I missed.

1999 cad concourse, 75,000 miles, excellent shape. have had 3 or 4 times over past 6 months: engine wont turn over. (like a dead battery but put in new one last year). dash lights, horn,security,door...


This car might not get enough exercise. By that I mean there are things that are running all the time, remote entry systems, clocks, alarm systems. You may have a new battery, but it needs to be kept up to snuff. Sitting alone in the garage with NOTHING running, the battery will lose about 1% per month in ideal circumstances. As I said, your battery is powering all kinds of things while sitting in the garage so the drain is more than the 1% I mentioned. You may want to consider a trickle charger on this car if you are not able to drive it for at least 20 miles or more per week every week.

It seems your average mileage is just under 150 per week. I'm guessing you don't drive this car much on short trips, rather the bulk of your miles were highway on trips.

If I missed the boat on this question, please add a comment and I will try again.

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro won't turn on


I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. Found intermittent power from AA source when battery tray was moved slightly while shooting. I ordered a new AA battery tray from Fuji ($50 I think), problem solved, no trouble since. The tray must hold the batteries tightly against the contacts inside the camera. Camera had only shot about 5000 frames when the problem arose. Hope this helps.

CANON POWERSHOT S2 IS 5 MEGA PIXELS


I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!

Canon PowerShor S3 not functioning


Had my S2 IS now for 3 years , never had a problem with the lens. I'm careful not to bump my lens into anything. I actually bought the lens hood and put a filter on my lens so that no dirt can get into my lens or I can't accidentally bump my lens into anything while i'm using it as it's protected by the adapter and filter.
