I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 that was dropped in water and died, completely. I left to dry out and a month or so later I plugged it in and lights appeared!! Huzzah. The screen though is till totally dead.
When I plug into the computer to charge there’s a solid red light top left that eventually turns green. I guess that means it’s charged?
When I plug it in to power or the PC it gives me the beep beep noise you get when it’s attaching to a power source. When I unplug it and hold the power button for a bit I get a blue light, it plays the Samsung sound , then blue light goes off and screen is still dead.
I if I then plug into a PC I power off and on I get a msg in Win7 that “USB device not Recognized” .
At one stage I could see the phone in Windows Explorer though I couldn’t access as I guess I need to add a password. At this stage I can’t see in Explorer as I keep getting the message “USB device not Recognized”
What I really want to do is get some photos off the phone– any ideas how I could do this??
