the date and time on phone show 25th Deember 06.35 not that means anything.
Removing the battery and then replacing it is worth a try. Simply switching off doesn't shut everything down; removing the battery does.

i can take it to a EE shop, but does anyone have a clue what the message of "unfortunately Nfc has stopped " -
Near field communication. Something phones have so you can put them near something else and exchange data. Would be a symptom rather than a cause.
Question Author
i can't seem to access the battery as the case i have is stuck firmly. will have to take it to EE shop and see if they can get it off.
If you Google "Nfc has stopped " you get some suggestions.

never had this before, its died on me once but got it working again. OG not sure what that means..
Question Author
tried googling but at a loss to know what it means, can't switch phone off nor can i get case off the phone.
Can you access settings? This might work:

On your Android device, tap on “Settings.”
Select “Connected devices.”
Select “Connection preferences.”
You should see “NFC” and “Android Beam” options.
Turn both of them off.

There is quite a bit on google about it

prudie no can't access anything, phone won;t work at all.
I’d go with bhg’s suggestion.
Whenever I’ve had any kind of problem with anything electronic, detaching and re-attaching the battery has usually resolved the matter in 90% of such instances.

am no techie but phone is just dead. press on any icon nothing happens
If you can't get the back off then powering off, leaving, then powering up again might be all you can try. Good luck at the shop.
Question Author
got the case off but can't find a way to open the phone.
Question Author
this is all i need. managed to power off and put back on, and it come back,
Question Author
very weird
Rather than pasting here it would be easier if you google 'samsung j3 battery removal'. It shows you how to do it.
I was going to suggest powering off, as apposed to switching it off. Tech is a nuisance when it goes wrong.
NFC is a feature that allows you to make a payment just by hovering your phone over the payment terminal.
It allows you to leave home and carry no cash.
