    So, my Galaxy S4 turned off randomly yesterday during charge. I attempted turning it back on via the power button but it would not respond.

    Then I tried taking out the battery and replacing it, the device vibrates with the Galaxy S4 logo showing up for about a couple seconds, then the screen goes blank again.
    I cant turn it on with the Power Button.
    When i remove the Battery and put it in again the S4 turns on shows the splash screen and turns after 2 seconds off
    i cant do a hard reset or something its turning off right after 2-3 seconds

    I even tried placing a battery from a different S4 - still doesn't work.

    Anybody know what's wrong with my device?

    Edit: Hitting the Power Button doesnt help.

    Welcome to Android Central! Was the other battery you tried fully charged? If it was, then it might be a hardware issue with the power button, or worse yet, the motherboard. You'd probably have to bring it to a repair shop.

    I think your power button is always pressed in. It's a know fault. Check this out. It shows your how to troubleshoot and fixes it.
