This happened to me. I tried to re-flash its firmware then finally it just turned off and cannot power on again. The technician also gave up and said the motherboard is beyond repair. I recall that I overused it and maybe my very cold room generated some moist inside the phone short-circuiting the motherboard.

Stephanie, I had the same problem on Sat 22/11 night. It's easy to fix. 1) Go to settings/more/application manager 2) swipe left to get to "disabled" 3) Click on "calendar storage" 4) click "enable" All your calendar entries should now re-appear. I hope that helps. Ninos. Sydney.

According to AndroidPolice is actually caused by a bug in Chrome Beta that showed up on certain custom ROMS. The recent update (v39.0.2171.90) contains a fix for this issue. It's likely that the next update for non beta Chrome will include a fix for this too.

Well, I have tried all these things I could find on the web and my Win 7 professional PC would not recognize my Galaxy S 3....I then realized my new computer has nothing but USB 3.0 ports so I decided to try to use an old USB hub I have. I plugged it into the computer and a driver for it was successfully installed. I then plugged my Galaxy S3 into the USB ...

I, too, own a Galaxy S3. Thankfully, I've never had to restore the calendar app. But, if I did have to, I'd try a recovery tool to restore the stock calendar before falling back to another app.

This is happening in any custom ROM that supports floating windows. It is there, for example, in SlimKat, Spirit ROM, CM based ROMs etc. In my case I can move and size the window, and there is a maximize button available. It resizes the window with pinch to zoom automatically rendering it almost unusable. This is an app issue ultimately, but it is specific ...

I disabled (saved) and re-enabled (saved again) the SIM change alert feature, after also ...

If you know the location where the pictures are stored you could always use ADB to pull the files or directory to your pc. This does require you to have usb debugging enabled. So if you haven't I can't help you further, sorry. If you have, you can use this command to pull the folder/files to your pc: adb pull location/of/pictures/* C:\location\on\pc\ If ...

If you have a micro SD card in the phone, that can be taken out, put in an adapter and read by any computer with an SD card reader. Recovering data from the internal memory is much harder. If you can't get the phone to power on, there is no way to recover data from the internal memory. When I had a similar problem with my Galaxy S3, I had it repaired by ...

wipe cache won't delete user data at all. a factory reset will preserve your photos, but not your messages... though they still might be retrievable. formatting the drive nukes everything

This is the name of the user and computer that was used to build the kernel. "se.infra" isn't a username belonging to a real person, but an account used by the build infrastructure at Samsung. It's not relevant at all. The thing you need to match is the Build number, shown just beneath the kernel version in the About device page of the device settings. It ...

You should reformat the card from within Settings -> Storage, then try copying the files again. Make sure you unmount the card before removal even if you will be turning the device off to remove it. I would highly suggest you transfer the files to the SD via the phone itself -- either by connecting the phone to the PC or using one of those apps that gives ...

I've had this problem numerous times and this is how I fix it..... Take the SDcard and insert in card reader on PC. Use a partitioning program such as GParted, which is open source. Have it scan and fix errors on the card. Using just the PC to scan and fix errors wont work right for your problem. Put it back in your Samsung and enjoy.

I had exactly the same problem on the Note 2 SGH-I747. Windows XP refused to recognize the device, unable to install hardware. I had reloaded the drivers a couple of times. Today I was charging my other Note 2 which was working correctly. XP recognized and installed it. Huh! I plugged the broken one in. It was recognized. Odin then worked perfectly.

"Blocking mode" has nothing to do with blocking individual contacts. It stops all calls and other notifications disturbing you, like a "do not disturb" mode. If you want people to call you, turn off blocking mode.

Just found this thread and it helped me solve the same issue (gmail not syncing on mobile data) on my Galaxy S3. Under settings/data usage/gmail I found that 'restrict background data' was ON. Just for gmail, not globally. Not sure when or how that got checked, but it may have been that way out of the box since my gmail has never synced on mobile data, even ...

Try holding down the home button, the volume up button and the power button for a few seconds. If that doesn't work, try the volume down button. Vol up will try and boot into recovery, vol down into download mode. Source
