    For the last weeks I've had a recurring problem with my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. The sound on my phone would go out completely. Phone calls, music, sounds from interaction with apps or the screen, nothing would make a sound. I noticed that if I tapped it on a hard surface, table for something along the lines, it would beep and work like normal. Today while listening to a podcast the problem happened again but this time with more frequency. The last time I taped it, the phone turned off. Black screen, no sound, nothing. I can not turn the phone on, if I plug in a charger, there is not indication that it is charging. The phone will begin to over heat and I can not do a hard reset via the Home, power and volume button combo. I know it is safe to say that it is pretty much a bricked phone now and I do have a warranty to replace it but for the time being I would still like to use my phone. Any ideas on what may be the problem and if there may be a fix I can use for the time being?

    Not really sure about a fix at this point.
    I would make good use of that insurance now.

    Good luck and let us know what happens.
