Samsung GT-S5610 won't start

by Mati1991 / November 25, 2012 1:31 PM PST

I've recently purchased a Samsung GT-S5610 and it worked great until I updated it using Kies.

The update went through without any problems but when I started the phone it showed me a line of code and then rebooted again.

The startup look like this:
1. Intro Screen
2. "Samsung"
3. "Carrier name"
4. "/a/customer/images/hstoolbar/hstoolbar_mediencenter.ifg"
5. Reboots again

It does this over and over again. When in this state, Kies can't connect to the device. However when I pull out the battery for a while and put it back in, the device will prompt me for the date and time. Only then can I connect the device to Kies.

When connected I can sync the device but not reset it. And as soon as I unplug the device it starts rebooting again.

If anyone experienced the same problem and found a solution or have any tips it will be much appreciated.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
