If the S3 won't soft reset, try a master reset:

  1. Power off device
  2. Press and hold Score button
  3. Press the Power button
  4. Release all buttons when the screen displays "Clear user data?"
  5. Select Yes

If done properly, the initial setup screen will appear shortly.

Let me know if that works?
