Help getting into recovery mode

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I got a nice shiny new SGS yesterday and all seemed well. I installed a couple of market apps (Launcher Pro and Y5 Battery Saver) with no problems. However, I powered it up first thing this morning and was presented with a black screen and nothing much working. I got the Samsung splash/intro screen and then it just says 'Phone Locked' agains a black screen. I can swipe the lock message away but still left with a blank screen and none of the buttons seem to do anything. I figured the easiest thing to do would be a 'factory reset' but I cant seem to get it to boot into recovery mode. After a little Googling, I've accross several supposed methods of doing this involving volume, home and power buttons but nothing seems to work?!?!?

Any help out there?

Thanks a lot.

You usually just have to press volume up, home and power - hold them all down until you get the recovery screen.

Yep, tried that one. Thanks for your help.

If i hold down all three and keep them pressed the phone just keeps reseting over and over (I guess because I'm holding the power button down). If I press volume UP, home and power and then just release the power button, it boots up normaly (and into the black screen I've come to hate so much!).

Just press VOLUME UP and HOME button first. The final button to press is the POWER. Hold the 3 together until the recovery screen appears. IF splash screen appear, don't let go, continue pressing it.

Hope this help. And good luck .
