SOURCE: how do i get my samsung instinct to turn on it

The power on button is on the end call button, hold it down for some seconds, lets say about 15 seconds.
First ensure that the battery, the charger and the phone is intact by carrying out some tests on them to be able to detect where the problem is from.
Test the battery, by inserting it in another phone and charging it for about 2 hours then you power it on, to see if it will power on the other phone. If it works, then it means the battery is alright and if it does not power on the phone, then you know the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Test the charger by trying it out on another phone to see if it will charge the phone, if it charges, then it means the charger is alright and has been charging the phone all this while, but if it does not charge, then it means the charger has not been charging the battery all these while but there is a problem somewhere.
Finally, you need to test the phone by inserting a well tested battery in it, then you try to charge it with a well tested battery then power it on to see if it will turn on. If it does not power on, then it means there is a problem somewhere on the phone. Most likely its power panel is bad.
Hope this information helped you.

My samsung instinct is not charging properly. I plug it in with my charger and the charging screen appears for less than a 30 seconds then goes to my background display. I have tried using my car charger...

look inside the charge port to see if there is anything from the charger inside that my have broken off by accident. that is very common with the instinct and the m300 as they use the same style charger. you may need to just replace the charger. and if the phone is in fact broken, sprint has an insurance plan that will get you a new one for free or for 50 bucks depending on the policy

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

My samsung instinct is stuck on dial pad,i cant acess any other menu but my speed dial and dial pad.cant dial any number cos if i try to dial one it shows im pushing nine instead.

do what is called a "hard reset". take the battery out while the phone is still on and leave it sit for about a minute, then return the battery to the phone and turn it on. see if this helps. if not, back up your phone and try doing a full reset.

I took the phone off the charger one day and it wont power on

Then its the motherboard inside the phone where the charging port connects. It costs about 150-200 to fix unless you have sprint insurance. This happens if the phone is accidentally dropped JUST wrong still plugged into the charger, or if the charger is taken out JUST wrong and sideways or crooked. On a plus side, it is a common thing for a lot of phones and it is fixable by a technician.

My Samsung instinct phone freezes when you turn it on and -battery checks Good

Take the battery out for two minutes, try again, or try letting the phone die and then charge it back up. If these do not work, you will have to get the phone repaired or replaced at a sprint repair center.

before i had the same problem, when i thought my k5 runs out of battery i plug it in to charge, but it said charge complete and when i unplug it, it still wont turn on. but then i tried switching to a different usb plug on my computer and it worked. so i guess the problem is that some of your usb slot on your computer isnt working properly, try using a different slot.
