Samsung Fascinate : Won't Boot Completely / Suddenly My Screen Went Black

Nov 11, 2010

So I was at work today browsing the market and suddenly my screen went black. I tried pressing the power button to wake it but got nothing. After a few minutes of waiting, I pulled the battery. The phone will boot past the "Samsung", "Galaxy S" and "Verizon" screens, but gets stuck on the Verizon one for a while then goes dark. The soft buttons on the bottom stay lit. That's it. I've probably done it 10-15 times through the evening now, and I get no farther.

I wasn't doing anything particularly taxing at the time, and I haven't added anything recently that would have caused a change in any system files. I'm running voodoo v.2 with the OCLF (because it won't uninstall) and all has been well for almost six weeks now... then all of a sudden this happens.

I'm thinking maybe I need to learn exactly what Odin is and how to use it, but any help that you can give would be great.

Samsung Fascinate :: Black Boot Screen After Did Verizon Update Unlagfix And Crap

Sep 22, 2010

I was rooted and and had lagfix on my fascinate. Then I decided to download the new update from verizon today. After the update the update screen kept on popping up even after I already installed it. Then I found out that my apps that require root like autokiller and setcpu did not work anymore even though I still hade the superuser app. So I rooted my phone again restarted it and the apps worked again then I decided I wanted to do the clockworkmod installation thing so I could make my phone flashable, the instructions recommended that i remove lag fix so I took my phone plugged it into the pc and went to my ryan lagfix folder whatever on my desktop and clicked on the unlagfixme.bat thing and at the end it had some errors or something even mentioning the Innopath Activecare in it which was for some reason probably why it didnt work. So I decided to try it again and it didnt work. Then I rebooted the phone and I saw the samsung logo and then black screen!

Samsung Fascinate :: Screen Went Black

Sep 13, 2010

Came into work this morning, plugged the phone into the Samsung dock, was trying to get to my gmail when the screen went out. Well, I've had some annoyances with the screen timeout, so I thought nothing of it. Tried pushing the power button. Nothing. Took the phone off the dock. Tried again - nothing. The backlight comes on on the capacitive buttons, but the screen is black. Held down the power button - the power off/airplane/silent toggle comes on. Okay, I thought - maybe it's frozen up. Powered down, got the VZW splash screen. Powered back up, got the whole bootup animation. After the VZW splash screen, screen goes black and I'm right back in the same place again. I've also tried this process with removing the battery. Same thing happens. Seems to linger at the Verizon splash screen longer than I remember, too, on bootup. About 20 seconds. So to recap, here I am: The backlight on the capacitive buttons is on (and not dimming, btw). If I hold down power, I get the power off menu. Otherwise, the screen is black, and not responding to any button presses. I'm running Launcher Pro, otherwise stock/not rooted. Need help - don't have time to go wait at the vzw store for an hour today.

Samsung Fascinate :: Used This App And Now My Screen Is Black

Oct 19, 2010

I opened this app (battery booster, can't post link because I am new) after downloading it excited to hoping it was better then a previous one I was trying that seemed to do next to nothing.I saw the brightness button and hit it. It showed 11%. I was like oh I thought I had this all the way down.so I use the scroller to take it all the way down assuming 0% meant that it was the lowest it could possible dim the screen.well it sure is a battery saver considering I can't even see my screen as its completely BLACK
1. Why would you even allow something like this in a app.
2. Please help me fix it.
I have tried for about an hour to assume where the scroll down, and mounting the phone to my computer so that I could possibly uninstall it via computer with no luck.

Nov 24, 2013

I dropped my Note 2 yesterday and the screen started slowly turning blue. This morning, the screen completely got filled with blue/white/messed up color, and then went completely black. Touchscreen still worked though because I was able to maneuver around the phone right after it was dropped. Screen was not cracked. does the screen has to be replaced as well or i can replace it with smaller parts?

Samsung Fascinate :: Completely Wiping / Formatting An Sdhc Card

Sep 10, 2010

The SD card on my samsung fascinate worked fined until I tried to save a sound from a mms. Then my fascinate starting slowing down... until i removed the sd card. Then the phone ran fine.The problem I have is that I tried to format the sd card both by phone, and by computer. However the phone would freeze up if I insert the card, and my computer is unable to format the card. I tried going to controlpanel//administrative tools/computer management -> disk management, but it was unable to format the card.I even tried downloading something called an "sd formatter" however it appears as though my card is "not supported". Does anyone have a solution on how to return it back to normal? It appears as though normal formatting methods are not working.The card came with the fascinate 16gb, class 2 if that helps at all.

General :: Bricked Arc S Stuck On Black Screen At Boot Up

Apr 27, 2012

So I was trying out the CM7 for xperia arc by the freexperia team. It was epic. so i also tried the CM9 release by them..

-> I downloaded the CM9 anzu for my arc S
-> Extracted the files
-> Used fastboot to flash boot.img
-> And then: fastboot reboot

Instead of the FreeXperia splash screen welcoming me.. i was given a black screen.. The phone does turn on.. but then there is nothing. No splash screens. nothing.

Is there anyway to boot straight into CWM?? recovery?? Did i brick my phone for good?

Android :: Camera Photo Completely Black

Aug 25, 2009

I am creating a little application where I use the Android Camera class. Everything seems to work but the result is a black picture. I think I forget to set a parameter. Do you have any ideas on which parameter I must set up ?

The code:
public boolean takeIt() { ImageCaptureCallback iccb = null;
try { String filename = "photo.jpeg";
ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(Media.TITLE, filename);
values.put(Media.DESCRIPTION, "Image capture by camera");
iccb = new ImageCaptureCallback(new FileOutputStream(new File (dataMgr.getRoot(), filename)));
} catch(Exception ex ){ ex.printStackTrace();
} camera.takePicture(mShutterCallback, mPictureCallbackRaw, iccb);
return true;
}

I've tried using ADB to push bootanimation.zip to my phone. The file copies properly without error but doesn't take affect when I reboot.

Samsung Fascinate :: Boot Animation Links And Requests

Oct 19, 2010

I am posting this thread to see what people would like to have as boot animations. I probably won't have time to make all of them, but I plan on trying to make a few of the top requests.

Also, if you have boot animations you have made, or links to someone else's boot animations that you like and think others would like here, please post those links! No sense in going through all that trouble for one that's already made!

*Important!*
When posting links to boot animations, PLEASE specify whether it is an animation that doesn't work with the Fascinate and you'd like us to try and make it work, OR if it has been CONFIRMED to work specifically with the Fascinate, just so people know.

I will be posting links to some more of my favorites soon, but for now, this is my current favorite. I did not make it, and when I find out who did, they are going to get a big, fat thank you from me! It's awesome, and battery friendly to boot. (no pun intended)

Fascinate Boot Animation Links (confirmed to work):
Windows 7 Boot Animation
Spinning Droid (thanks to Saps for link and Natems from MyDroidWorld for creating it)

Fascinate Shutdown Animation Links(confirmed to work):
Reverse Android Scribble Shutdown (thanks to Saps for reversing, testing it, and the link)

Links to more links:
Bootanimation.zip links on XDA (thanks jamesnmandy)

Please post the quickest link possible to the actual "bootanimation.zip" file, or whatever they've named it, and if possible, please credit the producer for his/her work. Keep in mind that some links might point to download files that require membership/registration in order to allow you to download it.

Click HERE for some of the basics on creating your own boot animation using primarily photo editing software.

General :: Phone Is Suddenly Taking Long Time To Switch On But Not Boot Up

Oct 23, 2013

I recently bought a used, but in good condition Optimus V. Not a great phone, but it does what I need. However, in the past couple days I've found that when the phone does its auto-timeout, it takes up to ten seconds for it to switch back on. By that I mean that when I press the power button just to get to the passcode screen (not to turn the whole thing on), it takes much longer than it did when I first got it.

I've uninstalled recent apps, but it's done nothing. What to do?

Jelly Bean :: Turn Lock Screen Completely Off (Samsung Galaxy S3 Rooted - OS 4.3)?

Jan 12, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (rooted) running os 4.3

I trying to find a way to disable the lockscreen completly so I can use widget locker instead without having to swipe twice every time.

I have tried setting the standard lock screen to none but it still starts with the standard swipe lockscreen - I have also tried alot of different apps (noLock, no lock screen, etc) but none of them are able to disable the lockscreen.

I have also searched for solutions (here and a lot of other sites) but a lot of people suggest its a bug in os 4.3.

Running os 4.3 have succesfully been able to disable the standard lock screen.

HTC Incredible :: Removing Boot Animation Completely?

Jul 30, 2010

Is it possible to completely remove the boot animation? I'd have to assume the phone would boot faster, and anyway, I don't need all these flashy things and sounds playing when I turn on my phone.

I thought about just removing the zip file thingy whose name I can't remember, but won't that just make it do the default animation?
