    AHHhhhh! I just got this phone less than 2 months ago. I've been charging it on the wall charger, but then I switched to the USB cord to charge it from the computer. Since I did that, today I wake up and my phone is off. I went to turn it back on---it came on, just to turn right back off again and now it won't come back on for anything....even when it's plugged in. And I know it's charged.....I mean it was plugged in all night.

This has happened to my Blackjack II and I've found if I plug it into the charger then plug the charger into the wall, the phone comes right on. It's a pain, however, if I'm not at home when it decides to do this since no amount of button pushing will turn it back on, it acts like the battery is dead (when I know it isn't!)

BTW, I've have to have my SIM card switched out twice and the battery replaced 4 times since I bought this phone brand new in February......

Hi All,

Wingman6, try removing the battery for about 10 seconds. After reinserting the battery your power button should work properly (see http://www.fixya.com/support/t1085855-blackjack_2_turn for details). If the device is charged, and still fails to power on via the power button you'll probably want to connect with Customer Service or visit a store to see if they're able to swap your device for a new one.

Warrenj3303, a vertical line across the screen is usually a pretty big sign of damage or defect. If the device hasn't been dropped or submerged, you'll probably want to speak with your carrier to see what your replacement options are.

Thanks!
Jonathan

I dropped my Samsung Blackjack II (model SGH-1617)in water. I took batter out and let dry. It seems totally dead. Any suggestions?


You can try to put the charger into the phone (leave the battery out) and see whether it wants to start.
If it works, it means your battery is broken, but your phone itself still works. Then, you have to buy a new battery.

Good luck!

Blackjack 2 won't turn on


Hi svstskier,

This is actually a bug in the BlackJack II's firmware. If you power the BlackJack II off, but you're unable to power back on, try removing the battery for about 10 seconds, then reinsert the battery and power back on. The power button should work now.

(At the moment there's no permanent fix for this.)

Does that adequately resolve the issue?
Are you turning the BlackJack II off to conserve battery? While flying? Something else?

Thanks!
Jonathan

Samsung Blackjack II people can't hear talking on the phone


Hi jobare,

If you haven't already tried it, you may want to try a hard reset. (Warning: the hard reset process will erase all content and settings that you've added to or created on the phone.)

----------------------------

Hard Reset for BlackJack II:

1) Power off the BlackJack II
2) Hold the UP button on the directional pad
3) While holding the UP button, press and hold the Power button
4) When prompted, press the 1 (or 'E') key to continue
5) When prompted, press the 'Y' key to confirm

-----------------------------

If this doesn't resolve the audio issue it's probably microphone related and you'll probably want to research replacement options.

Hope this helps!
Thanks,
The MoDev Kid
