Common problem on Samsungs. Easy fix.

Most questions from the comments are answered below, feel free to comment with any comments or other questions ­čÖé
Tap the power button repeatedly with a little force (use a fingernail against the button, as you would tap your nail on a desk) that usually frees it from its stuck position.

If you took your battery out and your phone boots on its own when you put the battery back in (keeps resetting) without touching any buttons then the power button is indeed your issue. If not, it’s something else.

Unfortunately your button needs a darn good cleaning (taking your phone apart and cleaning the button with compressed air, denatured alcohol etc.) or needs replacement.

This video and description are to be done at your own risk. I am not responsible for any possible damages and am only here to help.
3/24/14 I’m very curious if my description above has helped anyone in addition to the video. Please mention this comment in the comments or “yes the description helped” etc., I’m also open to suggestions, thanks.

Experiencing the same issue, without being conspiratorial THIS IS CALLED
PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE, it’s the way companies ensure they get repeat
business if they are not creative enough to innovate better products,
millions of $$$$$ a year is spent on ensuring products fail after a certain
period of time´╗┐

solitude687 says:

nails and it did the trick. thanks for the vid´╗┐

ROFL I’ve been reading these blogs with idiots talking about some 7

Harry Catchpole says:

I recently fucked up my phone. I was rooted and had Twrp recovery
installed. I tried installing Cyanogenmod (the old, hard way. Now you can
just use the installer) but I did things in the wrong order. I tried
restoring one of my backups but it failed. I would try everything possible
to get my phone to work and everything would work about from booting into
the OS. I think android had been deleted or something. I had to pay to get
this fixed because I didn’t know how to do it myself. Does anyone know how
to delete everything on a Samsung galaxy S4 then reinstall everything and
have it all working again? If anyone does know please tell me. Thanks. ´╗┐

Aby Anjalise says:

krisjanneman says:

before you do anything else: try a different battery…because in my case
it simply needed a new battery and it works as new.´╗┐

Jay Reilly says:

I tried opening it up and using contact cleaner before I watched this,
which actually seemed to make it worse, but after watching this video,
tapping it hard with your nail to dislodge it seems to be the way forward.

Jack Lee Reapfield Puchong says:

go any further than that irriating flashing…and I tried everything until
I came across this clip & OMG it worked instantly! TQVM man for sharing!´╗┐
