    Default Re: S4 won't turn on unless replacing battery, then turns off after two seconds?

The phone should turn on by itself but the button isn't stuck so it will turn on perfectly fine. I am having the same problem right now actually and it is very frustrating but if do this then it should work.
    This works but my phone will shutdown after 1-2 secs. What to do?

    WOW .. I guess the power buttons are still acting up in 2015, here .. I thought it was busted!! Thanks guys .. I didn't believe it, but ya, it worked. Power button didn't even feel like it was broken. Huh .. I guess there's another switch down below beneath the one that clicks that gets stuck.

    Wow. The power button guy is right! But I found an easier way. Take off the backing and the batterie out. Then do the old school nintendo game blow, with lips touching the power button like a harmonica, and blow. This should the get the lint or whatever is blocking to move.

It took me 10 mines to take it apart and clean it and now the phone works perfect!

    Thank you so much, this worked! The tapping didn't quite do it but I rubbed the power button against the rounded edge of my kitchen counter and it worked perfectly! So grateful, thanks again P.s. I also made an account just to show gratitude!

    Well Carlos Torres Vazquez, you are correct, same symptoms as everyone's S4 here, and I tapped a little on the power key, and it was in fact stuck! Thanks pal, everything is back to the norm now! Your a life saver, I mean phone saver! Two thumbs way up to you!

    I had to do a combination of both of these for the power button to get unstuck. It's unreal how such a problem could exist -_-

    Thanks to both of you, I created this account just to give props for a problem that still haunts us!
