Hi

Today I rebooted my Samsung Galaxy S 2 and for some reason it is not working anymore.

No idea why this has happened

I tried everything Recovery Mode - Cant get into

Download Mode I cant get into

Tried removing the battery then putting it back in still nothing at all

On the back I can feel the phone is getting warm but nothing on the screen

It was working fine yesterday and I havent done anything to the phone yesterday

Please help if you know anything?

Thanks

Sounds like a hardware fail. I hate to say it but it sounds like returning it is the option.

Did you have any update fails recently? Update fails were the reason some Galaxy S phones would not turn on.

Hi

Thanks for the reply

No.

It has the latest software so there wasn't a need for update

It was working fine for the first hour this morning and then I rebooted my phone because it froze but now won't turn on at all.

Should of backed up my data!

The device gets warm but nothing on the screen tried everything that is available on this forum.

Do I have to pay for this if it's faulty I only had it about a month now I think?

When plugged in on the usb charger, if you toggle the volume rocker will the display turn on and show the battery level?

Any solution yet?

I ordered a JIG, however I don't know if it helps in case the bootloader is dead

First I'll try a JIG - if it arrives on time... (desperately need the phone in 5 days)

fjosef871: have you tried a JIG to get into download mode?
