Question about Samsung UpStage SPH-m620 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Is it really dying?

Yesterday i put my phone down at work after texting. when i picked it up again it was dead. i havent dropped it or done anything crazy like that, it just sits on my desk or in my purse. i turned  it on again without incident, but it just shut off again a couple minutes later. after that i couldnt turn it on agian. i got home and stuck the charger in, and nothing happened - no  'beep' letting me know it was connected or anything. i messed with it, pressing the power button and resetting it, and it started up only to die again. i just left it to charge all night, this morning though, it wasnt charged, and wouldnt turn on. so i left it sitting without the charger for like six hours and when i came back it was still dead. what can i do?

It's possible the battery is dead, but the phone may also be too full of old files/msgs/pics/applications/games etc... the phone needs a certain amount of memory to function.
Try another battery or a new one, if it starts do an update of the phone software (firmware). You can do this yourself, but it may be better left to a repair/sales shop.

You need to download the latest Samsung PC Studio to do an update on your phone.
Before updating software you should check that there’s a newer version of software available.

WARNING
When updating software on Mobs, be sure to:
HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY INSERTED;
PUT IT ON GENERAL PROFILE;
TURN OFF YOUR PIN NUMBER;
CONNECT YOUR CHARGER TO YOUR MOB AND SWITCH IT ON;
DO NOT ----- DO NOT ---- TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE UPDATE IS GOING ON;
THIS CAN TAKE 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
And obviously don’t unplug the phone from the PC.
Be patient, you may have to do a restart or two on your mob afterwards. Even remove the battery to get it going again (not recommended). But give it plenty of time.
It is also wise not to use your PC while updating software, just in case the PC freezes.
If the PC freezes during an update, you’re up the creek without a paddle...

I did an update on a Sony Eric 810i it took nearly two hours.
More... Your phone turns itself on and off, sometimes more than once while updating software, you should leave it well alone during the update.

My iphone 3g is jailbroken 3.1.3,was working fine then one day after a text from a person it just suddenly shut off? thinking it was dead battery, i plugged it in, apple symbol came up and i left it to...


Unfortunately there is not a lot of support from Apple or the jailbreak community for iphone 3g, so there isn't really anything you can do to make it operational again.

My Lg Dare says Camera Start Error. It has done it before and I think that i just need to get rid of Pictures... is this true?


No, don't get rid of the camera....mine did this yesterday! I read a solution posted on this site by someone else. Shut the phone down, take off the back cover, remove the battery, put it back in, then push down pretty hard with your thumb over the "3.2 Megapixels" near the flash. Then replace the cover and turn the phone back on....it will work! You probably dropped it at some point and loosened the camera. I think that's what happened to mine. It works like a charm again! You don't need to delete pictures yet, unless your memory card is full too. Let us know if this fixes your problem!

My phone was working fine yesterday, It ran out of charge last night and when I put it on the charger thismorning it now just flashes white screen every 5 seconds or so ... is it dead ? cheers Wal


The phone should never be left to die out of charge anytime for good health of battery and phone.
So the problem is that the battery has completely died out so its not getting charged again, it bound to happen sometimes. So all you need to do is get it to a repair shop and just boost the battery initially so that it starts charging again.
Its similar to jump start in a car. So do not worry its a cheap fix only and never let it again to die out of charge.

Bought my phone yesterday...Battery was losing charge quickly.. battery was down to half charge after about 15 minutes of fully charging.. Was trying to let the phone die completley then fully charge it,...


Ok first of all you should never let a phone die out of charge at all.IF it dies out of charge there are chances it might charge again once you charge it but in some cases it wont, you need to boost your battery just like jump start your car.It cannot be done anywhere except some service centre. If you are not taking to your service center , then you need to buy a new battery.

Blank screen


Mine did this too. Once you dropped it, The screen went blank because it's the first time you've done it. Just leave it off for a few hours, And it SHOULD go back to normal... If It doesn't contact T-mobile. :)

Phone is acting strange


Yeah that happened on my fourth version of my phone. Did you drop it in water? Because when I accidentally dropped it in water (the first time), it did that and all the keys were short circuited and I couldn't do anything. I took it back up to Verizon and just said that the keys don't work anymore, and the lady didn't even try it out, she just took it and gave me a new one without doing anything.

You can't really do anything to save it at this point. Just go up to Verizon and say that the keys don't work. Maybe you'll get as lucky as I did.

I had downloaded a theme onto my phone right before it started happening. I deleted the theme from my phone and it started working right again.

Unable to format my nokia 6288


Fully charge the battery, then power the phone on while it's still plugged in to the charger. Now you should be able to power the phone on and delete all those messages.
