    Won't turn on

    Hi All

    My Galaxy Gear had the battery replaced as it was faulty and was swollen.

    Since then it won't turn on. When I charge it the display lights up and shows its charging.

    Any idea's ?

    Regards

    This may go back to why your battery became faulty and swollen.
    It may have become overcharged and in turn overheated.
    This could have damaged some internal circuitry.

    Did you get your Gear checked out before installing a new battery?

    Hi Greenman.

    I didn't have it checked out. Just assumed. But looking inside it all seems fine. I can't see damage.

    I can take some pictures later and check.

    It is only my guess, but you are unlikely to see any physical damage if it is as a result of overheating.
    The circuits should have closed down before any damage, but may not have happened.

    There must have been pressure as the screen popped out.

    But let me check properly tonight.
