    Hello there!

    That's mainly the issue: I press the power button and get the phone to switch off. Soon after it just restarts and is on again... How can I fix this without having to take off the battery?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums!
    Are you trying to lock the screen or switch the phone completely off?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm trying to switch it completely off and it restarts (as if I choose the restart option..)

    I am hoping it's not a problem with the physical button. But try this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html

    Clearing the cache might help, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't.
    Let me know what happens.

    nope..
    it took me ages to get it into recovery mode as the initial logo (not the samsung but the note 2 gt7100) kept appearing in repetition.
    Wiped the cache but again it's restarting instead of shutting down....annoying as I'd like to recharge it quickly..

    no worries, thanks for your help. I've read that the power button might get stuck and the only solution is to smash the phone on the table but.. it doesn't work.. uless I have to break either phone or table to achieve this result.

    I hope someone knows something more.


    Thank you again!

    Hey Fabio

    Don't bang your phone! Apparently its to do with Motorola updating the boot animations to a christmas theme - I'm sure they'll sort it out!

    I just turned off Moto Assist and it seems to have worked.
