How Do I Fix The Red Screen of Death?

My samsung galaxy s4 that I am currently trying to repair for a friend has the red screen of death. It only displays samsung logo with red background, lines sort of flicker accounts the screen too. When put into recovery mode, it just goes black. I tried to mirror the prompts from another phone with no luck.

Does Odin download mode work properly?

When phone is off hold power and volume down to get to the download mode booting.

yes what does the down button do compared to the up button? It does come up with downloading target but still has red screen of death?


That's really bad news then. I think it is an issue with the nand flash memory chip on the logic board of the phone that has gone bad.

The download prompt menu prompts you to either go to download mode which is used to reflash firmware on a Samsung phone.

The other is to reboot from download mode if you pressed that hardware combination by accident.

Definitely worth a try reflashing Samsung firmware on that phone. You can use Samsung smart switch to reflash the ssytem software on the phone when it is in download mode.


im not sure how to do this, because when it comes up with downloading target it will stay on that screen forever, un responsive.. how exactly do I reset it pls?
