Galaxy S3 Sudden Death syndrome


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Does anyone else got Galaxy S3 and his phone just died ?

I went to sleep and when I wake up on the morning my phone was dead, not able to reload himself or anything else even when I put him in charge :(


I've read it's called Sudden Death Syndrome aka SDS.. 


Why me ?? :( :(

SDS was patched 2 years ago by Samsung... So it's probably not that. Luckily.

See if you can boot into recovery mode: http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-s3/283020-guide-rebooting-into-recovery-mode-galaxy-s2-s3-tab2.html and wipe the cache.

I have the same prob here with a Tab 2 10.1.. Tips I have read:


-sometimes screen appears to be all black, but is in reality ON and is due to a freeze of the OS. So force to turn off your phone in pressing the power bouton during at least 30secs.

-try to start in recovery mode like suggested by Xerni.

-test your phone with another charger or even another cordon. Don't know if those of Apple's phone are compatible with the S3 like they are with the Tab 2.

-in case it would come back to life, check if there's a system update available.

None had worked for me.


But my system could not be updated when phone were alive.

it was stuck on 4.0.4 and said no updates were found.


therefor I think my phone had the SDS :(
