Samsung Galaxy S model SPH-D700 won't turn on, how can I fix this?

My Sprint Samsung Galaxy S model SPH-D700 or Epic won't start up(turn on). One day I was using it and then it froze, so I shut it down and after that it never turned back on. It'll charge while it's shut down(turned off) and the charging icon will appear, but it still won't turn on after it's fully charged. Help?

To reset the phone, it should be without power at all. So removing the battery, when the charger is connected, will not reset the phone. Then when the battery is dead, it could show up as if it is charged, because the voltage on the voltage sensor can become high enough, to indicate the battery is charged.
First, disconnect the charger, and remove the battery. Wait a few seconds and reinsert the battery. Try switching the phone on. If nothing happens, the most likely thing is you have a bad battery.
I hope there is no other issue.

    Is there anything else that i can do? I was thinking of hooking it up to the computer and seeing if there are any files. And i was thinking of taking the phone apart andd seeing of i knocked anything loose. Do you think that any of those would work?

    I have already tried to hard reset the phone and I just tried again. Nothing happens. Thank you though for that suggestion.

    Do you think putting the battery in the refrigerator will help to see if the battery is bad?

  • Harrie Apr 17, 2015

    I don't think that will bring anything. Measuring the battery, with a multi meter could tell something of the condition, but nothing about the RI (internal resistance). The voltage on the battery should be a little higher than printed on the battery. Like a 3,7 volt battery, must be at least 3,8 or 3,9, when not connected. 3,7 or less is a bad battery. But then, when connected and the voltage drops half a volt, it is also a bad battery.

How do I flash a sprint Samsung galaxy s2 for metro use

I think what you mean is that you want o unlock it. This a CDMA phone, but there is also an S2 Sprint model which have a min-SIM card (the Samsung SPH-D710). But then again I'm not sure that it can be unlock. One way would be to contact Sprint, they will ask you for an ESN (located under the battery). To flash any firmware you need the firmware and Odin, this is a tool to flash firmware to Samsung devices. But that won't unlock your device.
I recommend that if possible, visit a Metro PCS store or Kiosk, maybe they can sell you a mini-SIM card and unlock it for you. Metro PCS use CDMA technology as Sprint and Verizon, but Metro PCS is now accepting GSM phones. Best of luck.
