Hard Reboot your Samsung Galaxy S3

This is the first thing you should do when troubleshooting a problem like a device not booting up, a device is stuck or frozen, a device running slow, etc. Don’t just do it once or twice but do it many times just to make sure that there is indeed a problem with the powering on of the phone.

  • delete all user data
  • After that , reboot your phone with the power button

Remove the battery , press & hold the Power button

What you need to do is take out the battery from the phone, once it is out, press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and afterwards insert the battery again. Next, try to turn on your device. If the phone stays dead even after doing this, proceed to the next step given below.

Boot your device into Safe Mode

In Safe mode, only pre-installed apps will run. This rules out the possibility of a third-party application preventing the phone from booting up normally. It will merely and at most runs on pre-loaded apps and nothing else. So, if the app is causing the problem, you would know by doing this.

If your phone starts up in Safe Mode then be sure that it’s an application that is preventing your phone to boot up. In most cases, this would be caused by one of the recently installed apps. Delete those.This can easily fix your Samsung galaxy from not booting up.

Boot to Recovery Mode and clear the cache partition

  • Press and hold the Volume Up, Home, and Power buttons altogether.
  • When the phone vibrates, release the Power button but continue holding the other two until Android System Recovery screen appears.
  • Use the Volume Down button to highlight ‘wipe cache partition’ and press the Power button to select it.
  • The phone will be rebooted automatically after the cache partition was wiped out.

At this point, if you can’t boot to Recovery Mode, then the problem is either with your battery or your phone’s power switch has a problem.

Try a new battery

Buy a brand new battery so you can test if it was really the battery that caused the problem. Make sure that you buy an original Samsung battery compatible with S3 and charge it for 12 to 16 hours before using it.
