Do you get no power when you turn on your phone? Nothing shows up on the screen at all. You have the worst brick possible that is recoverable. I wished this post came out before I did a warranty swap.

Here's how to fix: Credit goes to OP
- You need Odin program before starting.
1. Remove the battery, external SD card and SIM card.
2. Wait 10 seconds.
3. Open odin3
4. Insert battery.
5. Connect usb cable.
6. HOLD VOL+ and VOL- while plugging in USB

Got download screen and flashed with ODIN..
Let ODin finish.

*** This program recovered my dead phone with no power, nothing shows up on my screen. - Dead and also a stuck boot up screen.

I saw another post that has the similar set of instructions 6. HOLD VOL+ and VOL- and then press the power button. Nothing happens.


I am curious how people this post has helped. Can you respond when you these directions gets your phone up. Thank you.

I have the same problem but I cannot get it to download mode. My phone is completely dead no power no sign of life. The only thing I notice is when i put the battery into the phone for about 15 minutes the phone is getting hot so I don't know if this is a common problem for bricked phone.

Try these steps to see if you can get the red text to show up. If you can, you are still recoverable using the steps.

Summary: Anyone who's getting "Phone--!--PC" and the three-button combo takes you to "unknown upload mode", try holding vol down + power for 10 seconds.

dead phone
The guys just turned off my phone and didn’t turn on, didn’t enter into the backup, I can’t flash through ODIN because even after installing the drivers, the computer sees the phone as a ULC1 device and cannot install the drivers needed for the phone, who had such a problem decide? samsung j100fn
