Galaxy J3 Takes Too Long To Turn On

Problem: Hi, 1st, thanks for helping me. Now, my problem. About  month or so ago, my phone went dark. i tried to restart it, and got a message saying something about a  boot failure. I tried swapping batteries, and got the Splash screen and it shut off.I tried a few times to restart it and got another battery boot failure message, then nothing. I finally gave up, left my phone alone for couple of weeks, then tried another battery. It started, but the batteries don’t last long, they drain rapidly, so I have to swap them out multiple times a day, A lot of times, the phone drains the batteries instantly. It takes 2 to 4 batteries b4 the phone will start again.  I can’t plug in via the USB port, because it rusted out (I live in snow country, so there’s a lot of humidity in the winter) so I use a separate charger to charge individual batteries. Sometimes, the phone instantly drains batteries; sometimes, the phone will turn on if I remove it and put it back in again. I am a retired disabled senior, these phones are quite a financial burden to have to replace after only a year or so for anyone, but, especially for someone like me. I have been trying to locate a suitable replacement that will serve all my needs, and still be affordable, but, I have as yet to succeed. (Besides, I just lost $450 when I hired and prepaid a handyman for work and he simply left and refused to answer my calls, so I really can’t afford to buy a new phone). I rely on my phone for most of my browsing and other things, because I lost my computers in a fire last year, which took almost everything I owned. I have as yet been able to replace or substitute everything, so I rely on my phone quite heavily. I also would prefer to not have to buy a new phone, especially since I just had the screen replaced last summer. I also had a memory/boot failure last Spring, and lost all my data, because I had to do a hard reset. My son also had a problem with the internal memory failing, and had to buy a new phone. Apparently, many people have had both of these problems with the tis phone, but, I like the features and am now accustomed to using this phone and would just prefer to stay with it. I would be very grateful if you could help me. Incidentally, I tried the solution your site gave to remove the battery, then hold down the power button for 1 minute. It took several attempts before it would stay on past the splash screen, so I assume that the power problem still exists. Thank you for your time and assistance.

Solution: Since you are able to remove the battery of the phone then i’m assuming that this is the 2016 version. The best thing that you can do in this particular case is to backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete do not install any apps in your phone. Try checking first if the same issue still occurs. If it does then this is most likely caused by a faulty hardware component already. You should have this checked at a service center so that the exact component can be pinpointed and assessed if it is more cost effective to have the device fixed or to just get a new phone.

Galaxy J3 Not Turning On After Getting Wet

Problem: I put my J3 in a bag. My friend was carrying that particular bag and it was raining he didn’t zip the bag due to rain water got accumulated in the bag and phone was in the bag. Initially when I took it out. It was fine. It turned off when I removed the case cover. I tried to turn in on in panic mode. The screen was flickering and I could see the screen saying it’s a wrong pattern. It then switched off automatically. I then used hairdryer to dry it up. Now I placed it In a rice bag. I tried to turn on after 20 mins it didn’t turn on. I continued to put it in a rice bag. Do I have any chance to make my phone working.

Solution: It’s very likely that the phone has suffered from water damage which is why it isn’t turning on. The best thing that you can do right now is to place the phone in a bag of rice for at least 48 hours. Once this is done charge the phone for at least 20 minutes then try turning it on. If it still does not turn on then I suggest that you bring this to a service center and have it checked.

Galaxy J3 Not Turning On Unless Connected To Charger

Problem: My J3 is not booting if disconnected from power. If on charge and you press the power button on, it turns on and display and immediately after few seconds it restart itself and again after 5 seconds of display it turns off for itself unless you do same process and it keeps repeating itself. Can only power for few seconds when on charge and display for seconds and restart for itself and turns off immediately by itself.

Solution: Unfortunately, this appears to be caused by a faulty hardware component already possibly by the battery or power IC. The best thing you can do right now is to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
