    So my S3 randomly turned off and wont turn back on, I'm suspecting a third party app caused it because I kept getting pop ups after downloading an app on the phone a few times a day. Anyways, I looked online and tried every method listed. Tried a different battery, took it to a repair shop and they said its most likely the software. So I tried doing the power volume up and home but it wont get far, as soon as i highlight restore or clear cache it turns right back off to black. Tried the power and vol down and it doesnt work either. I got annoyed so I just kept hitting the power button over and over and suddenly it loaded past the galaxy screen and to my actual home screen. I tried to go to the setting to do a factory restore but it turns off before I can actually do it.
    If i dont repeatedly press power while it's turning on it wont load past the galaxy s3 screen, if I do it at least turns on all the way for 30 seconds or less. What's going on?
