My Galaxy GT-S5360 is not being detected via USB when I connect it to my PC. It still charges however. It used to work and there was a prompt to connect it to the computer but now it just charges directly. I have downloaded Samsung Kies but it still won't connect.
A USB connector has two pins for 5V and two for the data signal. Seems like the first are still connected while the latter are not.
- Have you tried another cable and restarted your PC?
- It's also possible that the phone's socket is damaged or has connectiviy problems.
It's soldered onto the phone's logic board. Did you once drop it with the cable inserted?
Check out this link at Microsoft - It seems to be a problem with Windows 8.1. USB Plug-and-Play: Plug in your Galaxy Y and then unplug/plug a different device on your PC where the Plug-and-Play works - this will cause the Galaxy Y to be detected.
