Broke my S3; not turning on; replace parts/phone?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What are your thoughts on this scenario? Won't turn on due to a fall off a bike had this in my pocket.

Based on it not turning on; it doesn't look like that there's major damage to anything except where you see I punched through the bottom; not sure if there's critical components in there. I want to confirm that there's no parts to be replaced before I replacement it.

If not, is there a way to get data off of Internal Storage? I didn't make a backup to external SD card that is as recent as I would like.
Guiding me through what'll probably happen is appreciated in advance very much

Well since you don't know if it turns on or not, if you still have access to the buttons, Download Odin v3.07 then connect your phone while off. rolleyes.gif then press vol. down, home, and pwr button simultaneously down for about 3~5 secs. then after that press the vol + button . (MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE SAMSUNG DRIVERS INSTALLED!) if Odin recognizes your phone, your internal parts work! Congrats! Just replace the screen+ digitizer, and probably the home screen. You saved your self from getting a new phone.( if it works. )
Or if it doesn't work do you have insurance on the thing?

No insurance, no case, nonono. Gotta have at least one!

I'm not sure how to do what exactly it is your'e saying... Downloaded Odin but not sure what to do with my phone plugged in.


Noticed you're from Cupertino by the way. I'm from Mountain View, Class of 2008 LAHS. You local as well? Or are you older and already working at Apple... haha

haha no here I'm actually younger than you. Let me explain a bit more, the program Odin is an program to FULLY restore the device it just takes the firm ware of the device, wipes it installs it again.great for when you accidently brick (corrupt the system file) the phone. Gor example like when you decide to root, or install custom firmware. So when you plug ur phone in, simultaneously press (volume -, home, and power) for about 5~7 secs. Then relase all. After that just click the volume + button. Hopefully windows will recognize your device. Then that would mean your internal components are fine. You can just replace the screen your self. All your data will be there
