Default Galaxy S3 stuck in loading

Hello guys,

My galaxy s3 out of sudden stuck on loading screen. The samsung service told me that the phone is dead and won't work, but I beg to differ since it is on the loading screen. I need to recover the contacts by any means. Not all contacts are synced to google. Can anyone help?

Tried to access recovery (vol up+home+power) phone not booting at all and I have to remove the battery

In download mode is the product name blank?

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

If download mode is broken then you have a hard brick, try a usb jig but probable you need a new motherboard.
