Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 YP-GS1 boot loop
Let me start off by saying that this is by far the most frustrating situation that I have ever experienced as I am in the IT field. Lets be honest, reboot usually fixes everything, EXCEPT for this problem.
About 3 or 4 weeks ago, my daughter was watching a YouTube video on her player. She fell asleep and the player ran out of juice and died that wonderful death that all electronic devices do when their life support is terminated. The next morning, my daughter tries to turn it on and naturally it won't power up as it needs to be charged.
She charges the player and attempts to turn it on and its getting the whole 'We're going to pretend to boot up, but we're going to give false hope, get to the Samsung screen, show her who's boss and shut down again. Then! - to really get under her skin, we're going to do it from now until eternity ends'.
Therefore, being the good little troubleshooter that I am, I opened it up, took out the battery, removed the SD chip, waited a little while, put the battery back in and pressed power with my fingers crossed.
Nothing. Same eternal reboot.
So, I start trolling Google... cuz we all know that if you can't find it on Google, it be broke beyond repair.
I go all over the net, to places I never even knew existed , to dark, deep, scary places of tech expertise I never knew existed. However, despite all of that, I have not located an answer that fixes my problem.
She got this player refurbished and there is no real warranty. So...this is something that I'm going to have to fix for her. If it were a MS server, I'd have this solve, wiped my hands of it and on about my way. Why is it that the smarter the electronics get, the dumber I feel?
At any rate, does anyone have an ideas for this issue and if they do, is there a step-by-step instruction I can find? Active Directory this is NOT! LOL
