I just got my samsung intensity 2 about a week ago. It was working perfectly fine, and then all of the sudden I looked at it and the screen was blank (a black screen).
I tried turning it on (thinking I accidently turned it off) but it doesnt turn back on. I tried everything. Help?

Yeah, I have had the intensity for almost 3 years and for the past few months it has been spazzing out an shutting of all the time. Now web I turn it off it automatically turns on. Yesterday it shut off and I can't turn it back on -_-. But it has lasted a long time!

I was experiencing a problem with my intensity II in which after crossing into a new time zone/ leaving a service area (Not sure if this was the cause or not, did not have my phone out) my phone had gone completely blank even though the battery was charged. The power and unlocking keys did nothing. Powering it from and outlet did nothing and the phone stayed blank when connecting to a laptop.

But while connected to the laptop i started pressing buttons and pressed the button to the left side of the screen (The lower one). And suddenly the screen came back on and everything worked properly after I got a message saying "Now Entering SVC Area".

I hope this is helpful to other users. Not sure what exactly I did.

I just got the Samsung Intensity II, and SAME DAMN THING is happening with mine!!! I'm pissed, not to mention my Verizon bill is $200 this first month of having this POS!!!
My phone shuts off for no reason. Sometimes it doesn't even turn back on. I brought it in to the Verizon shop and the lady took out the battery and put it back in, and it "rebooted" back on again. This sucks. Do I seriously have to do this every time? I mean, I overslept today because my alarm clock (which is my cell phone) failed to go off. The phone was dead...and it won't charge either. I think I want my old LG flip phone back. It never had a single problem.

This happened to me just now. Taking out the battery and putting it back in while it's charging seemed to do the trick
good luck with your POS phones!

Remove you battery and check to see if the water mark pink/red. If so you have water damage.

I've had this phone for about a year now, and I was at the movies when my phone suddenly shut off and would not turn back on. I've tried pretty much everything, and I really need this phone to work!

My son's phone did the same thing today. I actually looked into getting an unlocked phone because I figured after 15 months of heavy (he is 15y.o.) use it was time to replace. I decided to search to see if anyone else was having this problem...low and behold, I found this site. I did exactly what was done plugged into computer, pressed all buttons. Phone now working! What a relief. Now I don't have to waste my money on replacing his phone.

THANKS EVERYONE

My phone did the same, for the first time. I got it a week ago and dropped it once. I DID take the battery cover off (Now, remember that..)

Later that night, I could not turn it on..I waited until the next morning. I charged it, didn't work.

So I looked it up on my computer. My Dad noticed and says 'Your phone won't turn on? That happens to my laptop all the time.' So he takes the battery cover off again, pulls the battery off. Then puts in back in.

Now it works!

I hope that your phones turn back on again! :)
