S6 trouble turning on

First Poster

Hi, new to this so sorry if I've posted in the wrong place! 


So my s6 died as I was playing a game even though it was at 50% battery life.
It won't turn on and it only responds to the soft reset which is power + volume down but it freezes at the start up screen.

The only other thing that works is power + volume down + home button which is download mode but when connected to the laptop it has trouble recognising the device.

When i put it on charge it doesn't show a battery screen but instead shows the start up screen.


Anybody have any idea?

That's not good @Chris134 


If this was my phone I'd visit a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre for a diagnostic.
