Hello infinite wisdom on this forum!
I'm new here, normally wouldn't post anything since I think I can find my own answers, but after digging through this forum I could not find anything that could bring my Samsung Galaxy II back to live, so here it goes..
Got this phone yesterday from a friend who recieved a new one, so I thought i was being smart by trying a hard reset to remove all his settings/history/etc.. (I know now i need a usb restore as well, but...) I switched it off, and used Vol Up + Home + Power and it entered the downloading screen and i said: "Yes, reset this thing" it started downloading (I think) so i put it aside.. but I think the battery was running low because when i checked back a couple minutes later everything was black, and has been since...
I tried removing battery, soft reset, hard reset & enter downloading mode again.. but no response. I don't even see a battery charging indicator light when putting it into it's socket (not sure if there even is one though). Just one sparkle of light was when i put it into the socket and pressed vol down, It showed a a 1sec icon of a battery charging and then an image of a empty battery with the yellow exclamation triangle.. but it has only done this one time..
Any help or tips to get this beauty of a thing back to life?
