Your phone is turning on, which is good. What you saw sounds like 'download mode' which allows one to download new software onto the phone. It is accessed by pressing 'home', power and 'volume down' at the same time. Did you do that by mistake?
You can try a factory reset to reset your phone, which may help.
This will delete all your apps and settings and sms messages. It shouldn't delete your photos or music on your sd card, so don't worry.
1. take out the battery and charger
2. Put the battery in. Your phone still be off for the next step:
3. Hold 'Volume up' and home at the same time.
4. DO NOT LET GO, and hold Power. You should now be holding down all 3 buttons
5. You will see 'recovery' in the top-left corner of the phone. When you see this, let go of the buttons.
6. Press the volume up/down keys to navigate the menu and highlight 'wipe data/factory reset'
7. press the Power button to select this option.
8. When that finishes, do the same for the wipe cache option
9. Then do the reboot option
10. Wait for your phone to reboot and reset.
If you are still having problems, then take your phone to a Samsung store for repair.
Try to reset the phone..1.Power off the phone. 2.Press and hold Vol+ key and Power key simultaneously for about 10 seconds until the some option appear on the screen which are reboot system now; apply update from sdcard; wipe data/factory reset; wipe cache partition. 3.Use Vol+ key and Vol- key to move the cursor to "wipe cache partition" and press camera key to confirm it. 4.After 5 seconds, the cursor will be on "reboot system now" again and press camera key to confirm it. The phone will reboot automatically.If it doesnt work then it needs a repair service.
Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall.
ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
It is likely an electrical short. You can try burying your phone in a bag of rice (dry, of course) to **** out any more moisture. I've also heard of people putting their phones in the freezer though I have not tried this myself
If this doesn't work there's not much you can do besides taking it in to the dealer. Say it was rained on or the button quit working by itself.. not that you dropped it in a toilet.. and you're likely to get off cheaper or even free
hold the sleep button for about 5-6 seconds and restart it. Try that a few times, and then if that does not work, connect it to the computer and hit the 'restore' button and see if it will restore the light. Try to charge it also, sometimes that will help.
really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck
