    I have the same problem with the screen however I've never dropped mine or gotten it wet (you know if it has water damage if the white strip under the battery is red). I used the tap the battery idea and it worked but now it won't stay on. This is the second time that this has done this to me. The first time, it came out of it on it's own five hours later, this time, it turned itself off before I knew if it came out of it or not. So I did the battery thing. Why won't it keep a charge? I had it on the charger last night and it worked fine until I called an 800 number. The call connected as the recording was playing, but the phone still showed that it was connecting. It connected twice to the party I was calling, but showed that connecting both times so I couldn't use the key pad to answer their questions. Second time I ended the call, the screen turned red and that was it. Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem. Ive been to 2 AT&T stores and they say its shorted out. The thing is though, it was working fine one day, then the next day it made the sound like the battery needed charging. I plugged it in as usual and after about 3-4 hours checked it and had the pink screen and download on the front.

    Its very humid down here in Houston. Could it be that the humidity shorted it but not humid enough to turn the moisture strip red?

    I want my information to transfer to new phone. I don't want to wipe phone. I did not get this phone wet nor did I drop it. I was texting one minute and the next minute the screen started fading to purple sploches now the screen is almost all covered with this purple color. I downloaded Samsung kies to laptop so I could transfer info to no avail because of locked screen. I am wondering if there is a command line I can enter on my laptop connected to phone to open phone? lol.

I know how to solve it this happened to me too. you take off the back, get the battery, and barely put the battery part against the inside part (as if you were putting your battery in) just barely touch it a few times and it should work. im sorry if this doesnt work

All keys are inoperable

If it got wet, there's likely no hope - this phone is very sensitive to moisture. Take off the battery cover and check the little white square above the battery - if it's discolored pink or any shade of red, the phone is moisture damaged, probably beyond repair. Happened to mine!

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!
