    Hi All,

    I had purchased a new GS3 on July, 4 months ago.
    the phone seemed to work just fine for the first 3 months,
    then it sometimes just shut down by itself, i thought it was something that
    i did or a battery problem so i did not give it so much attention.

    on October 30 the phone suddenly shut down and since then will not turn on,
    if i connect it to the power the following caption appears "Galaxy S3 i9300"
    and that's it.

    can you please advice what can cause such problem?
    I was suggested it might connect to the motherboard?

    Hope you can suggest the reason since the place from where i purchased refuse to help and avoid replace it.

    Contact samsung directly then.

    First try factory reset. Hold volume up and home then press power to turn on. Should take you to recovery. If it does not or a factory reset does not help, it is a fault.
