    The GS3 will not come on past the Samsung logo. It vibrates and then shuts off and will not even repeat this behavior unless I remove the battery and wait 30 seconds before replacing it. If I have the phone connected to my computer or a charger, it will vibrate once upon connection, display the battery charging graphic for about 5 seconds and then shut off and again I will have to unplug, wait, and re-plug to get this behavior repeated. I have carefully taken the phone apart and cleaned the power switch with denatured alcohol, but the behavior is unchanged. I have read that I can remove the power switch and operate the phone without it. Do you recommend this? Or should I just bite the bullet and get a new phone?

    I imagine that the power switch could be replaced, if faulty.
    Also, are you sure that the battery is good?
