Question about Samsung Cell Phones

2 Answers

I have a Samsung 550 JetSet phone. This afternoon the battery was low, but not dead, so I plugged it in to recharge. When I did so, the screen went black, and the following message appeared: ============================================= USB Download Mode ============================================= The phone cannot be turned off, and no combination of keystrokes does anything to change it. I have removed the battery for over one hour. When I replace it, upon pressing power on, the message reappears. Removing the battery is the only way to turn it off. I do not have a home telephone and thus cannot call Cricket, my service provider. Nearest service center 35 minutes away and closed until tomorrow. Does anyone know of a master reset button, or any other thing I could try? Since I do not even have a USB Download cord, I am unable to plug one in to see if I can resolve the issue that way. I am desperate!

    So what would be a next step? How can I turn phone on? Where would I get codes, and who would I be paying?

    One suggestion was that there are codes to reset phone, but that phone must be on to do so.....Thus I am still stuck. Please Help?

Even i had the same problem....

there are actually three solutions for this

I took the batteryout and back in (to make it turn off) then hit "clear" twice, held the "9"button down and hit the button to turn it on and it did work like a charm for me from then on....

but if that doesnt work.... u gotta put the fone in freezer for a while... (iam not joking)
it barely comes alive for a few minutes so that u can retrieve ur phone datas
and again goes back to this mode....
check the following link where they ve specified this

one more suggestion in that site was to get the phone to the service provider and have it flashed free of charge.... but then considering the shop is out till tomorrow... u better try the first option i provided....

hope this helps

if u found it useful do rate me

thank you
all the best with ur phone
have a nice day

Your phones software is crapped up. You got to reinstall/flash the software again to get it right. There are codes for resetting the phone, but that can be done only when the phone is on. Its may cost around $15 for flashing the software in your phone.

Thank you!

Most likely, your rechargeable battery went dead. Replace the battery, charge it fully overnight, and the phone should be fine again.

HTC evo went dead. Battery does not seem to charge when plugged in and does not start. Removing battery and insterting did not help. Cant do a reset since the thing will not start

Mine did the same thing I think the protection on the phone to shut it off when it reaches low lvl did not work I had to put my battery in my hero to get it recharged so there must be a flaw with the phone charging a completely dead battery maybe it has to have enough juice to know it has a battery in it ......

Samsung Blackjack II battery went completely dead and now the phone will not recharge. When plugged in, green recharge light will not come on.

Issue with either battery, charging port on phone, or charger. Attempt replacement of charger or different outlet first. Then battery replacement, about $50. Then phone replacement (hope you're eligible for warranty or have insurance if you don't want to upgrade).

Low Battery, Connected car charger, now is dead

May be the battery won't have charge, keep 1 or 2 hrs continues charges, and if it is not working then you have to replace the battery set full.

The phone became dead, recharging led does not light up.

On following the steps as stated in my problem text. I kept the phone idle for 2 hours, then I pressed the "ON" button, the screen lighted up and then went "off" again. I again pressed the "ON" button, the screen lightened up and the windows setup completeded in 2-3 minutes. The phone started to work. I think the phone got hanged since the battry went too low. Now it is working OK. I will always keep the battry charged.

I thank you and all your team mates for all the assistance you have extended in solving my problem. I am grateful that your site gives ample knowledge to sort such problems by the user.
Once again thanks a lot,
