Samsung Galaxy S II :: Switched Off And Died For Some Unknown Reason
Oct 31, 2012
My samsung galaxy SII had been playing up, crashing etc for a couple of weeks, then for some unknown reason, it froze and died on me, never to be switched back on again. It has been well looked after so it hasn't been water damaged or dropped or anything of the sort. The battery was about 50% charged, I've also tried using somebody else's battery, tried connecting it to a PC, tried to start it whilst its connected to the charger and everything else I could think of but nothing. My main problem, is that I've been in touch with samsung and they asked to send the phone to them for repair, but told me that everything will be erased.
Now I know I am totally stupid for not backing up all of my media etc, but the information stored on the phone is worth more to me than what the phone is itself. Although the phone is totally dead and will not switch on, so how I can access my pictures/videos etc because surely it must be still stored on the phone somewhere. The phone itself is not as important to me as much as the media stored on it and I am willing to try anything to access my media files even if it means my phone isn't able to go for repair, I know I am going to receive comments for not backing up my media.
My DesireZ suddenly died (while in my pocket) without any apparent reason. I tried anything but noting seem to Battery was charged and even changed. Sim and SD cards were checked, but again, without any success. Even the charging indication light is not there (while charging).This phone (and the info saved on it) is crucial for both my business and personal life.
My S2 died completely.They said it was the battery (which suprises me because when I took the phone in the guy put the batter from his S2 into it and it still wouldn't turn on) and say they have replaced it.
How can I disable wifi and keep it switched off until I want to use it again, while keeping other radio services on.
I have pretty bad wi fi reception in my bedroom, however it's just sufficient for my phone to detect it and connect, but it drops out and syncing/downloading/loading web pages is very slow ad often fails.
My Samsung S6 is only a month old. Hasn't had a problem with it once an all of a sudden went to pick it up an i couldn't turn it on, Plugged it into the charger an still not able to turn it on. The charging signal doesn't even turn on. What can i do?
I've got my S2 now for maybe 2 weeks now and only now I noticed that my Wifi hotspot function is not working. I tried that with 2 different SIM's (in different countries) with the same result. Tethering via USB works fine. I can switch on the wifi hotspot (open or secured) and I can even connect to it. On my Win7 machine I have a connection for a few moments, after that I lose connection and at the end I lose connection to the wifi hotspot.
On my blackberry I can connect the first time. That connection stays open for maybe a minute. After that it automatically disconnects and I cant connect anymore until i restart the hotspot. When I switch off the hotspot it takes a long time and it ends with error (the status under wifi hotspot). If I just enable hotspot and disable it again it is without errors. So this seems only to happen when a client actually connects... I tried already a factory reset and read somewhere to enable bluetooth before enabling the hotspot, but the problem stays the same ...
I'm from Canada, on the Bell 3G network, and have noticed the last few months that my data usage is spiking without reason (I never download anything on the 3G network aside from email messages and a little web surfing). I've had this phone for 2.5 years, always on the same 500MB plan, and have never used much more than 200MB in any given month. Now it's using that up in the first week.
In an effort to try and isolate the spiking, I downloaded the Data Man app, and noticed yesterday that I went from less than 1MB in downloaded usage to over 160MB in the course of the afternoon! I was at home, connected to WiFi, streaming radio off the new CBC app for a couple of hours over dinner. How does a streamed audio signal over WiFi use 160MB in a couple of hours? What am I missing here?
For some unknown reason the right button was changed from 'Back' to 'Done. I find myself making up alarms I didn't intend to do. Also, the right-side buttons are usually 'Back' or 'Cancel' and this is very confusing. These are tiny things that should've been caught by the Nokia employees but either they're not doing their job or think nobody would care. The tiniest things can either make or BREAK.
Kies 3 always crashes with an "Unknown Error" when trying to sync my Outlook 2007 calendar. Contacts and Tasks sync okay.
I've literally spent hours on the phone with Samsung (lack of) technical support with no resolution. They are in fact blaming Outlook claiming that this "Unknown Error" is an Outlook error and not a Kies 3 error (I doubt that). Their other suggestion is a factory reset on the phone which I don't want to do or to try another PC.
Using Windows 7 Pro, latest updates to Kies 3 and latest firmware updated today on the phone.
I just recently acquired a samsung delve from a friend. I have a prepaid phone plan from alltel, and i was able to activate the delve online, but the only problem is, since i don't have a data plan for some reason every so often the phone sends and recieves data automatically or something idk, the little data transferring icon shows up, which costs me money, i know the data menu code the ##3282# BUT idk how to deactivate the data feature so it doesn't try sending data like web data or anything like that,
I had my phone unlocked and it was sleeping and then when I came to turn it on nothing would happen. It wouldn't even come on when I plug the charger in. I got it to restart by pressing the bottom volume and power button at the same time.
I have a samsung galaxy s6(sm-G920F) on 5.1.1 non rooted, the problem i am facing is that the lte stopped working without any reason, I didn't drop it neither i updated anything it just stopped working now i only see the E sign on the network bar.
I have the EE variant of the G920F galaxy s6 in the UK. At least once a day the phone will reboot for no apparent reason what so ever. This has been since the 5.1.1 update, I have factory reset and cleared cache and it still happens. Thinking of flashing the international software to see if it happens with that.
My S6 phone randomly kept switching to dock mode and back. Tried hard shut down and restarting the phone. Now I have a blue/green screen saying it is downloading and do not turn off target. The top left corner says it is in factory mode. What can I do to resolve this? I am very new to Android phones.
