[olug] Flashing blue LED of death

It's an old Note 3.  I got in that mode, I think it's the recovery, and did a "cache reset," but that did not fix it.  The other option was a full reset, but I did not want to do that.

Does anybody know if either Kies or Odin/Heimdall can do something?  I haven't used either one.

I found a few pages on the Net that describe this phenomena, but I was wandering if anybody has experience with this and has some better suggestions than what's out there.  I need to recover some data from the phone so I cannot just try and reset it.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
