Question about Samsung Epix Cell Phone

Open Question

I just got a Samsung Epix off of ebay and it has several buttons that are unresponsive: The 1, 2, and 3 buttons, the power button, and the "end call" button. Initially, when I got it out of the box and began charging it, the number buttons worked, which is odd. I think they stopped when I turned it off. Also, the power button won't turn it off, but will turn it on as long as it is charging. Interestingly, all of the buttons activate the background light after it sleeps. Is this fixable?

SOURCE: no power button on Samsung SGH-J750

Try Connecting the Charger. Sometimes that will turn the phone On. No Guarantees it will work though, just a thought.

Reset intermec cn70


There are 3 ways to reset the device:

Warm Boot - When an application becomes unresponsive.

Press the Yellow Power button (also referred to as the IO Button) and select the reboot option.

Cold Boot - When device itself becomes unresponsive, will loose any cached data.

Press the Yellow Power Button (also referred to as the IO Button) to suspend the device. Remove the battery pack and press the reset button in the battery compartment (Round rubber button). Replace the battery pack and press the yellow power button or IO button. The blue Intermec startup screen appears.

Clean Boot - When device itself becomes unresponsive and cold boot fails, device will be restored to factory state, all data and installed applications will be lost except for data stored in Flash Storage.

- Firmware 1.50.19.0013 and prior -
Remove the battery pack and press the reset button in the battery compartment. Replace the battery pack and immediately press the yellow power button (IO button) and volume down button (the lower
button on the right side) together until a message box appears on the screen stating the clean boot. Press the volume up button (the upper button on the right side) to confirm the clean boot.

- Firmware 1.62.27.6 and later -

Message box will appear stating to release the power button. Press button number 1 then button number 2, confirm again by pressing button number 1 then number 2 again. Message box will state that the device is clean booting.

Starts inconsistently. When pressed the start button flames and the the power button needs to be turned off. It often takes several tries to get it started.


Richard, it could be a unresponsive control to reboot the unit unplug power cord from wall a couple of min's and plug back in. I would ask if you are gently holding start button in until you here a click then release the button. as the start button is depressed it is a time process to enable to processor to think... let us know.

2nd gen ipod shuffle non-responsive


Step 1:
Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

Model KUDS30FXSS1 Kitchenaid dishwasher control panel stopped working at the end of a cycle.


I had a similar problem: unresponsive buttons, then the 1 hour wash button led was on but the other buttons weren't working at all.
I power off for more than 30 seconds and after that everything return to normal.
Thank you for the hint!

I have a Samsung epix i907 and the touch screen is not responding


You can try a system reset by powering the unit off, removing the battery and SIM card for several minutes. Reinstall the SIM and battery then power up. If that doesn't work, you're in need of a replacement touch screen.

Sampo DVE-611 apparently powers up from front panel switch (w/red light) LCD display, etc. No other buttons work, incl. eject. Remote completely unresponsive. Unit shuts down about 10 sec. later. Anyone...


After several power ups, the front panel buttons eventually "woke up". Replaced remote, and everything's working fine. Not sure why the front panel was temporarily unresponsive.

I have had a Samsung Epix since July 2009. Love the phone. I am experiencing a problem booting the phone now and have scoured the net and Samsung support team to level 3 and have no satisfactory answer on the fix. I have also checked xda developers. I am hoping that with your experience, you might be able to help or point me in a direction. My phone does the normal start up, (only while plugged in). It gets to, what I'm assuming, is the actual radio (phone) portion of the bootup (led glows red), and then goes dead. As the phone is plugged in to charger, the led which normally glows red, for charge, is now blinking at 2 sec intervals, red and off. Or the other indicator, while charging, is that the led glows a whitish amber. I actually had this happen to my original Epix about 2 weeks after I initially got it, and I returned it to ATT. The next part of the story, is that I actually bought a second Epix on Ebay, and it started showing these symptoms first, and wouldn't boot, but my original Epix still did. (I bought the Ebay replacement to replace the first, because the first had other issues.) Like I said, the first did boot, but maybe 3 days later, it stopped booting and charging also. The Ebay one was in pretty good shape. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I appreciate any help you might have. (Note: I was told by a tech at Samsung level 3 to reflash phone, but it won't even sync to computer with the boot-up/battery issue.) Again, thank you. Regards, Don
