Screen wont turn off
Just today my phone started having a problem with the screen turning off. When I press the power button the screen goes black (and it makes the default liquid sound) and then the screen turns back on. I press the power button again and the process repeats. Occasionally the menu will pop-up like I want to turn my phone off (I get the power off, restart, etc. menu), even though I haven't held the power button, just pushed it like I would to turn the screen off. Doesn't happen every time, but it's happened a few times. But almost every time I try to turn the screen off it goes through the process listed above - screen goes off, comes back on, I push the button to turn it off, it comes back on.
The only things I could find online were talking about a bad/bent micro USB port and suggested taking a small screwdriver and bending it back - tried that. Didn't work. The other option was to remove any apps that were recently installed - I haven't installed any new apps in a couple of months, so I don't think that is it.
I tried powering down the phone, pulling the battery, letting it sit for a couple of minutes then putting the battery back in and restarting the phone, but that hasn't help, either.
Please help! This is driving me crazy.
