Is your Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) not charging all of a sudden? Black screen when plugged in? Won’t turn on? Before binning your device or investing in a new battery first try a different charger, then try the following:
- Remove the battery
- Hold power button for 15 seconds
- Leave the battery out for at least 24hours
- Re-insert battery and leave plugged in for at least 15 minutes
Make sure you follow those instructions, the last time I came across this I nearly threw the device away as I had missed one of the steps.
Next time your phone will not turn on, try these steps.
