sudden death syndrome. how do I replace the emmc chip>?

my galaxy s3 is NOT suck in the loop. it will not turn on or vibrate. i have tried the battery removal i have even removed the mother board. i have tried to plug it in with no battery and all that happens is the red charging light comes on for about 1 min. if the battery is in and i plug it in. no charging light comes on. same goes for the computer. the computer only recognizes it as something plugged in but it will not download the drivers. also tried to get them off of samsung no luck. i have done a lot of research and have found that maybe the emmc chip is the problem BUT i need to know what that chip is for? will it help with my problem? and how hard is it to replace? i just want my numbers that i didnt back up and some texts if possible

brent, the eMMC chip in theory is what controls your Internal Data Partition. Anything to do with writing (and ultimately accessing) data from your internal partition is going to involve this chip. This is a BGA Ic and as such you would have to do a reball to replace it. Pretty difficult task for the normal DIY'er. take a look on here for an idea of what it entails. Hope this helps, good luck.

Does this remove all my photographs if i replace this chip? and does it remove videos. This is what we would be so grateful to know.

I also have this problem, it doesn't nothing. Just pure blackness. Not even a charging signal.

Please could you answer the questions in depth. I would be SO HAPPY if you could.

Kind regards,

All the data in the internal memory of your phone goes away with the old emmc chip if you replace it! if the chip is faulty then all of that data is probably already gone.
