Dropped Galaxy S3 now screen is black


Wednesday 14th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey Guys, After an accident in which I fell on the pocket side where my international Galaxy s3 was (never rooted or any other technical mod), the phone was turned off. Now when I turn on the phone it seems to start up, led lights working, buttons work and vibrates quickly when done starting up. However, the screen stays black, also it does not seem to respond to touch either, since I have not been able to unlock the screen (because ledbuttons wont vibrate). As I thought it was the digitizer, I already replaced the screen (whole digitizer) with a brand new one but it did not solve the problem! Does anyone know what is going on with my phone? Thanks in advance, David

Help Between LCD or Digitizer? *URGENT*


Sunday 08th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello, I dropped my galaxy s3 screen hit the surface straight. The screen did not crack however now the display is all black. I can power it on and the sound and everything works and the led flashes and everything. Its just that the screen is all black. If i get a call i can guess the position of the answer key and slide it on the black display and it works. I looked a lot online and now i just need to know do I need to replace the LCD, the Digitizer, or the LCD + Digitizer + Touch Controls? Can someone help and please explain the difference between the Digitizer and LCD?

Help, broken samsung galaxy s3 dropped in clean water


Sunday 12th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
About 1 month ago I dropped my s3 in water but immediately took out the battery and dried these with tissue, I was out at the time so had to wait till later that night to put it in rice, I did so for about 3 days and the phone turned on, minus the fact that up the screen at first was flashing and turning pink but eventually worked fine although the unlock button had to be pressed a number of times for the screen to come on, the touch screen and everything was working fine, then I turned the phone off for it to completely dry out to see if the punk lines would fix and now my s3 screen stays black but the phone turns on, the noises from texts are still coming through and I have no idea what to do, the phone is not insured either

Galaxy S3 dropped and now won't fully power on


Saturday 12th of April 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a used AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB (model SGH-1747) that I bought of the previous owner. I've been using it on Straight Talk's BYOP sim card program since December 2013 when I bought it, it was probably a year or so old already. The phone has always worked great. Then a few days ago I was riding my bike and it fell out of my pocket. It hit on both the upper right hand corner and lower right hand corner of the casing (on the silver trim edge), but thankfully the screen was intact without cracking or scratching. When I got home I realized that the screen wouldn't turn on and I assumed the battery was dead so I switched it with the full battery from our other SG3. When the battery is put in, the phone vibrates, the screen shows the word "Samsung" and then switches to "Samsung Galaxy S3", then it goes black again. No matter how long I hold the power button nothing happens other than to repeat that process. I tried holding the Power button, Volume Up, and Home button at the same time - nothing. I tried again but using Volume DOWN - nothing. I tried holding

Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Screen No Root


Sunday 22nd of June 2014 / androidforums.com
Hey guys,Quite a while ago a friend of mine dropped my phone , smashing my outer screen. He go it repaired quite a while later, however I dropped it soon after, destroying the lcd and digitzer but leaving no outer damage. I then sent it in for repairs and when it came back to me it was fine at first but then the screen went full purple. Strangely enough later when I decided to charge it I left it there and came back to it working again. Then two days later I pushed my screen harder than usual with one thumb( not hard at all but above average) and then slowly the screen went black.Now when I boot it up it shows nothing other than a black screen, not the black like it would be off but with a slight gray tone, producing light. The touchscreen is functional, the LED lights and the vibrating works but the menu and back key don't light up on touch. I don't recall exposing it to water. Thanks in advance

Water damage help!


Monday 23rd of June 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I dropped my Samsung galaxy S3 in chroline water. I tried to turn it back on BEFORE it was completely dried, and it came on for bit, then glitched back off. After that I put it in rice for a day. Then I dried to alcohol method to get rid of the chroline trapped in it. Then it went in rice for another day. Now, when I turn it on the sounds work, it registers my touch and the led light works . But the screen remains black. Is there anything I can do?

Dropped my Samsung galaxy S3, phone still works, screen is black


Tuesday 08th of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
How do I access my internal memory - photos from the camera in the "Gallary" - I downloaded Kies, and can access the files on my phone but because I never saved the photos to the SD Card....they are not available to back up to my PC. I have over a thousand pics as well as need to back up my contact list, but it also does not appear in Kies. Assuming because the contacts were not saved on the SD Card as well? I plan to have the phone repaired but don't want to risk losing all of my contacts and photos....trying to do a back up prior to sending the phone in? Any suggestions on how to get to my internal information from my PC? I did not change the USB Debugging and now have no access to it from the phone! HELP!!!!!

Galaxy s3 i9300 screen not coming on but power comes on after dropped


Saturday 26th of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Yes, Ive had my galaxy only 3 months when the plug to charge the phone became faulty, then eventually stopped charging the phone altogether. I took it into a local cell phone repair shop. They were unable to fix the issue & when I picked the phone up, out in the parking lot, I dropped it in one of those, " made it worst trying not to drop it" ways. Anyhow, the phone will power on now but the screen remains black except when it first powers on, for a split second the samsung galaxy s111 logo flashes on. I can tell the power is on because the menu and back buttons light up and the blue light on top lights up. U can also hear the Virgin mobile power up sound and the phone vibrates briefly when u turn the power on. I had given up on trying to fix the issue, but what troubles me is that if the screen flashes anything what so ever, then that pretty much rules out the first assumption that I broke the lcd right? Any adviced please?
