Samsung GTs5230 not starting up


Active Member
Hi all,

I have a Samsung GTs5230 but it doesnt seem to want to boot up...
I turn it on, it shows the battery with the status bar at the bottom which gets to the end, the next screen then appears with the galaxy graphic but then it turns off, then back on again and the startup process starts again..Help!

Could i do a reset? if so how do i do that as i dont have the manual...

Is your phone fully charged?

Before hard-resetting your phone, it is recommended that your phone battery is fully charged.

This is the guide on how to hard reset your phone:

1. Turn the power off. If your Samsung Galaxy S is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
2. Hold the Volume Down button
3. Press and release the Power button
4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
6. Press and release the Power button

Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

If you selected YES, all data including third-party applications will be deleted from the Samsung Galaxy S. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.

I Hope this helps.
