    Was working fine. Not done anything recently apart from download apps from marketplace.

    Anyway - powered off and on and it wont start up now.

    Samsung galaxy screen pops up, then the start up animation, then it displays the S in the middle of the screen and thats it.

    Any ideas whats going on / how to recover?

    Try the 3 button recovery first but if that doesn't work it's probably back to your carrier for a re-flash.
    Mine did this (twas my fault though) and VF just re-flashed the firmware for me.

    Hi GalaxyTDM,

    Greetingd from Newport!!!

    You mean the power on/home/vol down?

    I was hoping I wouldnt have to factory reset and lose everything. Bummer.

    Ha! small world and all that, I'm just up the road from you in Llanhilleth.
    Yeh, 3BR didn't work for me either, I registered with samfirmware and down loaded everything to flash it myself but thought I would try my carrier first and they were excellent, they sent it off on the Monday and I had it back on the Thursday.
    So long as they don't know/can't prove you caused the problem and it's not had a permanent root your carrier should re-flash it for you without question.
    Just tell them the battery went flat and when you switched on after charging this is what happened..
