Question about Samsung SGH-X830 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Samsung SGH X830, help.

Hello :) I have a Samsung SGH X830, and I like it very much. But recently, or today, it is f***** up. I went to bed, without charging it, 'cause I was too lazy. Then, when I woke up, I heard I was receiving a message, but I was to tired to read it. Later I received a call, but again I was to tired to pick it up. When I finally looked at my phone, it was all black. I thougt the battery was empty, so I started to charge it, and turned on the phone, but nothing happened. I thought it was pretty weired, so I turned it on without charging it. Then something happened. The original Samsung Logo appeared for a few seconds, and suddenly it was gone again. And then it appeared again. And it could do that all day. Now I can't turn it off without I have to take out the battery, or if I start to charge it. What to do? Marco. [email protected]

Enter the code *#9998*2878#. This is a custom EEPROM reset, you won't lose any data on your phone but your settings will be restored to the factory default state.

If that doesn't work:

Enter the code *#9998*3855#. You will lose all your data on the phone as the code restores the phone to default factory settings.

MARCO - you will need to reflash the sw version so take the phone and have it done.

ZQ1234 - you will need to try another battery first if that does not work then take the phone and have the circuit board tested.

Remove the sim card from the phone, where you would write the phone number, for example for calling 911, write the code given to reset the phone.
