Re: samsung gear s3 screen is black

having the same problem ... my results with both chat support and phone support were BOTH a total waste of time.  I am ready to use this PoS to make a YouTube video shooting it with an AR15 in slow motion .... probablyu filmed with a good LG phone!

Like most of the others here ...this started right after the FORCED (PUSHED) UPDATE. The support acted as if they know NOTHING .... that many "ignorant" people in one place is amazing ...obviously no contact with the Samsung forums .... in fact they have told me that on multiple occasions. 

 

The phone seems to shut down ...disconnects from phone, doesnt count steps, is in constant need of reboot ... claims batter low but when placed on charger is at 75-85% (typically) .... just far more trouble than it is worth.

 

Have had constsant trouble since day 1 ...actually day -1 (i recieved mine before release date.  WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER OWNED! ...DEFINATELY WORST SUPPORT!

Re: samsung gear s3 screen is black

actually ... so many of us are having identical issues ... discussed here and in other forums ... and SAMSUNG has been no help.  We spent a lot of $$$ on this thing ... and OUR efforts to get fixed remain unresolved....

I suspect this post will get me banned .... frankly I dont have anything to loose ..... Is anyone else interested in a possible Class Action Lawsuit against Samsung?

 

After my recorded go-round with "support" i discussed this with an atty today as a possibility.  I cant imagine their "new" watch has any improvements ... if so that means they should be aware of the "fixed" and problems.

Re: samsung gear s3 screen is black

I just downloaded some app updates a couple days ago and suddenly my screen is either black or has three pale green pixelated horizontal lines. I tried rebooting and that lasted a couple of hours, then it came back. I only have a couple of watch faces and some utility apps on it, so I tried to reset it from my phone. The phone reports that it disconnected, and it appeared to restart, but when it came time to reconnect to bluetooth, I have the same three lines again. I have tried holding down both buttons for 8-10 seconds, but it flickers and the same lines come back up. Same thing using the charger.

 

Anyone have any ideas, other than target practice ;-) ?

This worked fantastically for me.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!  I really didn't want to have to go buy a new one.

Re: samsung gear s3 screen is black

The only way to get it to wake up is to place it on the charger again.   Doesnt prevent it from happening again but at least it serves the purpose
