Default [Q] Phone is dying, can't flash, no recovery menu, no Samsung logo

My phone is white SGS3 i9300 16gb
I don't know what happened,
I just wanted to flash I9300XXELLA_KOR_MULTI_FACTORY to my phone using Odin, It's a 4 file rom, CODE, CSC, BOOTLOADER, MODEM + another file "mx.pit"
There was an FAILED error in Odin during rom flash,
now when i turn on the phone, there's nothing, there's no Samsung and SGS3 logo, when i press the power button, there's only a small vibrate and a black screen!! even after 10 minutes screen is black!
i tried to flash another official 4.2.1 , 4.2.2, 4.3 firmwares, but same FAILED error after i press "start" button in Odin
at this time, i don't have access to recovery menu too, even after flashing recovery menus, CWM recovery, philz touch recovery, etc
the only thing that show me the phone is still alive, is its Downloading mode screen
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S lll [GT-i9300]
Battery: Samsung 2100 mAh
OS: Android KitKat 4.4.2
ROM: Constantly changing

Reads as you have flashed and damaged the PIT .
You need a service centre or a new motherboard .

there's no service center in this area

i'm having the same problem. It happened last night. Phone just shut off and wont turn on. There is another post that just went up today and they are having the same problem. I have been able to get it to start up a few times it by continual pressing the volume and power.

You could try flashing with ODIN a PIT partition file. If that succeeds then flash CF root so you have a recovery menu but it's a long shot

Try rescue firmware:

But if you've flashed a pit file incorrectly then you'll probably need a new motherboard.

You are confusing stuck power button with a bad firmware flash, no amount of button pushing will restore a corrupt emmc chip.
