hello,

i've got a samsung galaxy note 3 N9005 and have a serious problem. i use my phone with the original cover and the original s view wireless cover.

in february i noticed that when opening my wireless cover the screen wouldnt turn on. serveral days later the problem was so bad that when i got screen on after 5 minutes and maybe the possibility to answer a call the screen wouldnt turn on after the call. screen remained black. i had to pull the battery out of the phone and then restart it. in one after noon of work i had to do this everytime i wanted to make or receive a call and up to 15 times. although the screen is not turned on it uses a huge amount of the battery.

i send my phone for repair. first time they repaired a part of it. what part i dont know and they did a software update. after 2 weeks the problems came back. i resend it to the repeair center. and when they received it the screen didnt turn on. they couldnt repair the phone because it wouldnt turn so they did a software update and send it back because they couldnt notice the fault.

then after 2 weeks the problem came back and i searched the internet and found a way to test the proximity sensor because i thougt that was the problem. i checked it by using the code *#0*# and then click sensor. and indeed there was a problem. when i covered the sensor with my finger the screen went green and keep trilling meaning that something covered the sensor. but when removing my finger from the sensor the screen kept trilling and stayed green. so i knew i had a problem with my sensor.

i send it a third time with the info to check the sensor (it came so far that i had to tell the repair service what to do). the device came back, a part was repaired and a software update. but now the day after the problem came back and even worse.

i'm now using a backup device and when i charge my note 3 a whole night and the day after it's just in standby mode. at the end of the day around 7-8 PM the battery is at 3-4%.

i mailed and called samsung but they want me to send it for a fourth time to a different repair service for a second opinion and then they will decide what to do next.

are there other people who experience the same problems?

i'm a huge samsung fan because i got the samsung galaxy camera, note 3, gear but i'm getting very angry with them.

Your motherboard needs a replacement. Lazy technicians are just wiping and reflashing software. Shoot samsung a mail in your region and tell them the amount you invested to buy a fone has gone to crap. Be firm and explain them the things in detail. By now a layman should know your proximity sensor is kaput (common problem with samsung devices., had the same issue with my sii, s4 )

Mate, the rule of warranty, at least in Oz, is 3 times and it is REPLACED.... No more repairs, you get a new item...
As this has been sent back 3 times I'd stipulate this, it needs replacement, not fixing otherwise you get consumer affaira, or relevant agency, in on the action.......

The "blackout" problem you are experiencing could be caused by some apps that you have installed on your phone. Perhaps you can try to remove your SD Card (if any) and do a factory reset to see whether the issue persists. I have a friend who works in a samsung service centre, and he informed me that usually the technician will first do a software reset/reflash/upgrade and they will do a check to see whether the issue reported persist. If not, nothing else will be done.

Good luck with Samsung. I haven'd had anything from them that even remotely qualifies as good service. Sad.....but unfortunately true. Australia is especially crap when it comes to service.
