    Hey there,

    So I have a Samsung S3. Recently it randomly turned off on me while opening a SMS message and it will not turn on.

    The only way to turn it on is by taking out the battery and re-inserting it. It will then auto turn on as the battery is connected (possible power-switch problem?), the problem is I cannot try any of the solutions that I have seen online, because the phone will auto turn off as soon as the logo pops up.

    I cannot factory reset/hard reset/soft reset/go into download mode because as soon I get to the screen, the phone turns off.

    I have tried another battery and that did not work. I haven't taken apart the phone yet to see if the power-switch is possibly sticking or has gunk in it, but that will be my last resort.

    Anyone have any other possible solutions, I feel I have ran out of options at this point .
