SOURCE: Samsung sgh-a707 won't stay on. Shuts off when batt seems full.

try to go to a local store or through your service provider to run a test on the battery that you are using. It might be defective, tyr using a different battery for the phone. If using a different battery would not resolve this issue, it means that the phone needs service.

Samsung s3 phone wont turn on only red light stays on and a buzzing noise sounds and wont turn on need help


Shut it down by holding the power button until the screen goes black, don't tap the power off button, wait for the black screen. Then let your phone charge for a few hours (maybe over night) with power off and see if that helps.

What are the significant differences of the


Significant Differences between the:
Samsung Galaxy S3 and the S3 Mini:

1. The S3 has all the bells and whistles of being more advanced in hardware and software then the S3 Mini

2. The S3 can last longer in battery life than the S3 Mini

3. The S3 has more storage space available for more apps than the S3 Mini.

4. The S3 is more complex with its many software options than the S3 Mini

The S3 Mini is for the Minimalist who doesn't want all of that, but just cares about having a basic phone with a touch screen that has the flexibility of Android.

The S3 is for the person who plans to use their phone for a multitude of things.. or the person who likes to download a lot of apps, either for gaming, as entertainment for their kids, someone who plans to take a lot of photos, and use it for work. You can do this with the S3 Mini as well, but because of its limitations in speed, on board storage, and battery life.. it won't be able to handle as much as the S3 will be able to do.

What is wrong with my samsung galaxy s3?


Before buying anything, back up your S3 data using Samsung Kies. Then do a factory reset.. followed by a data restore..
firmware updates can cause problems until the handset is reset, as parts of the previous firmware are still in use..
You should notice an improvement after this... mine went from half a day, to almost 2 days usage, just by doing this after a firmware update.

Why cant i open settings on my samsung galaxy s3


There are three ways to get to your settings.
1. Press the menu key. Select settings.
2. Swipe down from the top and press the gear icon in the top right.
3. Go to your apps and look towards the beginning .You will see a settings icon there.

If none of these allow you to access it then do a soft reset.
1. Shut down your phone.
2. Remove the battery for 10 seconds.
3. Replace the battery and turn on.

If after that you don't get any satisfaction you may have to do a factory reset. Keep in mind that you will lose everything on your phone so you should take steps to back up what you can before attempting it.

To do a factory reset I believe you turn the phone off then press the power button and the volume up buttons simultaneously to turn it back on. You be brought to a menu where you can choose an option to reset. Sorry if the key combination is wrong. I'm working from second hand memory. :p

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.


1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.
