Yes I have tried with kies. But I dont manage to get the phone connected to kies do its not possible to start up the phone more than to the logo.

Can I connect to kies in another way with the phone you mean?

Odin and kies fails and you can't enter recovery mode so flash a different custom recovery tar in odin. If ur using CWM, then flash TWRP,

switch off the phone
Press and hold VOLUME UP and HOME (middle) button and power key , when you see the blue text ,release the keys

if you still can't access the recovery after flashing a custom recovery then it can be a hardware problem.

I had this exact same problem, the battery fully depleted and when I went to charge it the only thing that would happen is a vibration every couple seconds, nothing would come up on the screen.

I held the volume, home, and power buttons and booted into recovery mode and just hit reboot device, I didn't need to do the reset. I am back up and running now.

Probably going to upgrade to a new model though, this one has been giving me trouble. Sensor issues, screen goes black like it thinks it's on a table and you're not using it, or up to your ear when on a call, but I'm not. Even disabled the bs features and still does it..

Well, if you are encountering this problem sometimes then I would say your device is perfectly fine and the problem is with your service provider, you can try giving a call to the customer support people about the same or you can also try switching to some different service provider. :)

My Galaxy S4 is 3 weeks old from EE, it came out the box with Kitkat 4.4.2 which I like, Samsung did an update yesterday to Lollipop 5.0. If I do a factory reset will I get Kitkat back or am I stuck with Lollipop? Thank you for any advice. Mike
