    Welcome to Android Central! Are those other batteries new, or otherwise only lightly used?

    Check the battery contacts to make sure there isn't any debris or residue. Try also wiping the cache partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    It's sounding like a more serious problem with the hardware (or a totally corrupt firmware). You could try flashing the stock ROM, but I'm not sure how far you can get. http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-via-odin.html
