Firstly give a bad rating to the Ebay dealer. Secondly, if not much time has elapsed then try tp return the phone or get refund thru ebay buyer protection. The phone is a goner as if the service centre people could net repair it, no one can. Sorry pal.

Restore original firmware

first of all try putting the phone into recovery mode and clear the davlick and the ordinary cache and reboot.
If that dosen't work you'll need to re-flash the firmware for your model of phone, you'll need the samsung usb drivers available from here SAMSUNG USB Driver for Mobile Phones v1 5 25 0 retail exe, odin v3.07 flash program availabe from here and most of all the firmware you can get from Firmware archive Samsung Updates make sure the one you download is for your network and country.

1.install the usb drivers from samsung on your computer
2. power off the phone then put it into download mode
3. run odin 3.07 and locate the downloaded firmware it will need to be unzipped to a folder on your desktop before you can flash it
4. on odin don't touch any of the pre-checked boxes, the pda button click on it and select the firmware once loaded plug your phone into the usb port on your pc - where id: com window is - should turn light blue with a com port number, now hit the start button at the bottom and wait till its finished.


5. when the phone restarts unplug the phone and all should be ok

Hopefully you should be up and running again:-) SAMSUNG USB Driver for Mobile Phones v1 5 25 0 retail exe

Printer connected to a Asus router RT-n56u via usb port System with Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit Usb port enable through Asus Printer Utility Driver select (auto) during installation SAMSUNG UNIVERSAL PRINT...

I'm having the same issue with the same router and printer (mine is CLP-300/XXA).
At first when I try t print a pdf file or an image or any text/word document file with pictures/images I get an SPL-C error.
I have upgraded the firmware and it worked great on my laptop! Then, I tried to install the printer driver on my desktop, but now none of them work correctly.

Still not solved, but here are some suggestions:
1. Try to upgrade the firmware. 2. Try to install the original samsung printer driver 3.0.1
3. If it didn't work try to install the updated driver 3.0.4 4. If it didn't work try to install the Universal Printer Driver
5. IMPORTANT: between uninstalling and installing driver, disconnect both printer and router A/C power adapter and try to reboot you PC after removing the previous driver!
I'm going to work on it and see if it works. The DD-WRT firmware solved the exact same problem on my previous RT-N13U router, but unfortunately DD-WRT doesn't support RT-N56U yet!
Note: I called ASUS and they told me that Samsung printers are not supported for printer sharing server :(

It sounds like there may be a possible hardware fault with your phone if it is draining that quickly (if it's under warranty, you can return it for a replacement). Though if for some reason your phone thinks that it is actively in use all the time, a software (or firmware) update may possibly fix the problem.

You could try performing a factory reset of your phone's settings by going to your Menu / Select Settings / Select option 9 (Reset Settings) / Reset All settings.

Failing that, contact Samsung Technical Support on 1300 362 603 & ask them to repair/upgrade your Firmware. They can do this over the network without you having to do anything in most cases. Otherwise they can walk you through doing it via a USB connection to your computer.

Warning though..a firmware upgrade will more than likely wipe your phone's memory of messages/address book etc so back these up first. I would also highly recommend using Samsung or a registered professional to do a firmware upgrade as doing it incorrectly can turn your phone into an expensive paper-weight.

Hope this helps.

Why did you press cancel? Your firmware is halfway done.

Try to update your firmware again, if your unable todo so take the phone to a professional or the place where you bought it for repairs.
