Issue#861: Samsung Galaxy S6: How Can I Remove Data, Even Though it Won't Turn On?

  • Hello all, I dropped my S6 in water yesterday. I went through the full evaporation and drying process, and today tried to turn it back on. It will show the title screen, but when it goes to boot the OS it crashes and starts over. I can access the repair menu, and it seems a factory restore would solve my issues, but I have some pictures, videos, and notes on the phone that are invaluable to me and I don't want to lose. There must be some way to transfer some of that data to my computer from the repair screen. Honestly, I would even be opposed to tearing the phone apart if it meant I could keep my files. I'm really looking for any kind of tips I can get here. Thank you very much.

  • Issue#24636: Samsung Galaxy Note II: Why couldn't my phone turn on without charging it?

    My phone is all fine but it can be used ONLY when it is charging and it will automatically switch off when the charger is off, I can't quite figure out if the problem is with the battery or the software? I've reset the phone (using the volume up, power and home key) hoping it'll be okay again without the charger, apparently, that is only formatting the phone and its content. I tried to connect the phone to the laptop, and only the Samsung logo appeared and it'll continue charging. The phone can only be used normally when it is plugged to the charger on a socket, it doesn't seem to be supported by powerbanks or cables to laptop.

  • Issue#29629: Samsung Galaxy S4: How can I replace both antennas and fix data signal?

    I have a galaxy s4 i545. The data signal drops all the time. I thought it could be a kit kat software issue at first, but its not. The phone is now updated to lollipop and the same thing happens. I can only reset the phone to get a data signal back. Also the 4g connection is slower than the 3g connection most of the time. It can never stay on 4g, when it does the phone gets hot. It always switches back to 3g and then the data works again. I took the phone apart and saw that the left red antenna is missing the connector on the end of the flex cable. Its just an open end wire kind of touching where it should be connected. I ordered a new left and right antenna flex cable. Is it just connecting each end? Are there any other steps or factors to consider to fix this problem? I don't see answers for this kind of repair anywhere on the internet. Please help. ⟐ Answered January 29, 2016 at 6:38 pm -0700

  • Issue#39933: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1: Tablet will not turn on

    On the night before, I used my tablet normally, turned it off and left it to charge overnight. Upon waking up to use my tablet, the screen indicated it's 100% charge display, but when I went to press the power button, the display went black, and would not turn on after repeated pressing of the power button. Neither the LED lights are on BTW. I have tried several methods such as pressing the power button in conjunction with either the up/down volume button or pressing the screen (while plugged in and unplugged). My last attempt was to gently disconnect the battery strip(?) And reconnect it, but to no avail.

  • Issue#48003: Samsung Galaxy S4: Won't turn on or charge, recognises on pc.

    So my galaxy s4 is totally unresponsive. It won't turn on or even charge. The backstory: the phone was working perfectly after a new battery, i tried 'resetting' the phone using the "Volume down, home and power button method" HOWEVER i read incorrectly and held all 4 buttons down (power, vol up, vol down and home). so now the phone is just black, it won't turn back on or anything. the only thing it *does* do is recognising on my PC. i have never plugged it to the pc before, so windows installed some form of driver, and whenever its connected/disconnected from the computer it makes the regular windows sounds as if its recognised, but nothing pops up. ⟐ Commented February 2, 2016 at 1:07 am -0700
