Then i did the hard reset and It worked fine until I went on browser and it restarted again. Now its happening everytime I use anything on the phone.
I bought this phone from India and when I tried calling samsung support in Canada they refused to help me. Does anyone have any tips for me?
PS: When it shows me 0% battery, I removed the battery and restarted the phone and battery came back at 90%. So I dont think its battery problem.
I had an issue similar to this on my girlfriend's Galaxy S4 SGH-1337 AT&T 32GB. Purchased in America from Samsung.
Removing SIM card, removing SD card, removing both. Factory reset, blah blah blah - none of that worked.
What he was referring to, flashing stock ROM is using an application to force push the original software for your phone back onto your device like brand new. Sometimes this will fix defective issues in a device's software causing these malfunctions.
I did this and fixed her phone's problem completely. Try doing so by following the directions in this thread:
*UPDATE: That link provides the AT&T file for flashing stock ROM. You may have to find your specific carrier and model "firmware" file. Just search the xDa forums for so. I quickly looked for a list of models/carriers firmware and didn't see them in a single list. They're available elsewhere but I support xDa and don't want to provide a link to another site.
If you don't have AT&T, make sure you find your model and carrier.
