    :D Hey everyone,

    ive been having a problem lately, i have my samsung galaxy s (first one) for about a year now,
    and for the past month or two it's been having trouble turning on, upto the point where now it doesn't at all.

    at first it would take about 20 minutes to turn on, then about 3-4 hours, and now not at all.

    it would shut down by itself, or i'd have to sht it down because it was too slow or would get stuck..and then to turn it on, like always..it says "samsung galaxy s" in white, then it's suppose to turn on, but mine just repeats the white writing over and over again, and just does that until..the battery dies. sometimes it seems as if its "struggling" and goes thru the second step (which is showing the server company logo) but then blacks out and goes back to the white writing.

    when i connect it to the charger it does show the charging battery image and it's progress..

    any ideas? whats happening?

    any way i can fix this by myself?

    please help.

    thanks

    I would perform a factory reset on the phone. To do this you need to go into recovery mode. First, pull the battery out and replace. Now, hold Volume UP + Home + Power button in that order until the Galaxy S logo appears then release all three buttons. The phone should boot into recovery. Use the volume buttons to scroll up and down and the Home button to select.

    Scroll to Wipe data/Factory reset and press Home then confirm. Do the same for Wipe Cache partition. Once done, select Reboot phone.

    I have this EXACT same problem. I wish you or somebody else could help me with it. Did it work out for you?

    In the Androd systems recovery-menu it says:

    Copying media files...
    E: failed to mount /sdcard (file exists)
    E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount /sdcard
    your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions.
    Media files copy failed.

    # MANUAL MODE #

    --Appling Multi-CSC...
    Installing Multi-CSC
    Can't access to '/system/csc/DBT/system/'
    Successfully applied multi-CSC.

    Not sure how relevant that last thing is(CSC-thing) but thats all i can get out of the phone.

    I've tried wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition.

    Please help.

    I'm having the same problem. It just gets to the white samsung logo which comes on, then goes blank and repeats this process until the battery is pulled out.
    The phone software was never rooted or updated and this happened (as far as I can figure) suddenly..
    And I tried the hard reset too.

    I have all the photos of my babies from birth until now (17 months) and i need them off. i took mine to a phone store yesterday and they claimed they changed the mother board and charged me $75.00. it was working in the store, i took it home and went out for dinner, came back to upload all the photos and throw the thing in the bin but hey presto, no longer works again. GRRRRR
    I am going to take it back to the store.

    I think it's time to upgrade to another Galaxy S, perhaps the 4th one :)

    Hey so my phone has the similiar problem. I have a samsung galaxy 3 of which when i upgraded to 4.3 it wouldnt turn back on after the upgrade. It doesnt go past the AT&T logo and i rebooted and did factory reset. How do i do a flash on the phone? My samsung warranty is up and thats what they offered to do if i paid for my $75 shipping which im not doing. AT&T wasnt able to help me with the phone either even after they were the ones who told me to update. Please help!

    Hello guys i am having a similar problem maybe i loaded the firmware files in ODIN incorrectly and clicked start.the flashing process failed and the phone was stuck in download mode so i waited and after all i pulled the battery out. and now it wont give me any sign of life. It gives no reaction when i press buttons. Even when i connect my i9000 to my PC it doesnt detect and no sound can be heard. Any help will be appreciated
