Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

8 Answers

Screen is now white with the text --download started--, emergency @ usb.

I dont know what is happening, nothing happened to my phone to my knowledge, it just went to a white screen. on the white screen it says --download started-- blank then it says, emergency @ usb, then at the bottom of that screen it says, boothlock version: a870:zd09.1. i can turn the phone on, but it goes directly to this screen. i cannot turn it off, i have to remove the battery. i also cannot call or text or even see anything other than this white screen. i cannot receive calls or text either. what is wrong?

Well it could be from that or just pushing to many buttons in the wrong way. if wet dry it out in front of a fan or by a breezy window. then try taking out the battery, put it back in, and press the sideways left button a few times. then if it says low battery, plug it in. worked for mine at least, maybe will work for urs

I had the same problem after having the phone for a few weeks. I took it into phone dealer and they said it had water damage. Which is impossible because it has never been in or around water. I put my blow dryer to it just in case. Then I left the phone on so the battery could die. After a few weeks of letting the phone air dry it now works. However, when I try and take a pic it says memory full. Now, I can't take a pic. Hope this helps!
