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
