1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi all,
    I loaded the latest version of Kies onto my PC.
    It detected that I needed to upgrade my firmware on my Samsung phone. I clicked on all the buttons as normal to go through the process.
    It started the upgrade process. I walked away.
    Upon returning 5 mins later it said it had a problem detecting my phone. The 'connected device' in Kies was now empty (previously my I9300T was shown).
    The screen on the Samsung now shows a Green Droid with the message below it "Downloading... Do Not Turn Off Target"
    Considering this is a firmware upgrade I believe the system is frozen.
    I disconnected the USB lead, restarted Kies and replugged the USB.
    It still didn't detect it.
    I have a choice of:
    (a) Attempting to touch the power button and see what my options are if it activates,
    (b) If power button doesn't work, pull out the battery, wait 30secs and then re-insert it,
    (c) anything else you guys can think of.....
    Many Thanks
    Steve

    p.s. just pressed the power button and NOTHING happens...... :-(
