    Just got a note 3 used from a buddy of mine. It was given to me because he was frustrated and moved forward with a iPhone6+ unit as the note was dead and would not turn on. Condition overall was near mint. None of the water indication tabs are red. so i started searching forums and diagnosing in an attempt to revive the phone. I have already brushed the charging port, removed SD/Sim cards, connected over a dozen chargers (USB 3.0 and USB 2.0), I even had a spare Note 3 logic board that I swapped.

    Result: Completely Dead!!

    Things to note: When pressing the power button i can hear/feel the pop when its depressed but i get nothing at all. When the phone is plugged in there is no activity from the charge light or the screen. There is no vibration or anything but the phone gets hot within a matter of minutes. Not around the battery area but around the top of the phone near the camera area and the heat is significantly felt on the screen. Most forums that had similar concerns were solved by changing the charging the charging port which i ordered and will update when done. Any other ideas or help? I don't want to lose this battle however I don't want to spend the cost of a note 4 on repairs.

    Did you both try a new Samsung battery from Amazon or an Anker. Can't say it will cure it. I would get an opinion from a reputable repair store, even if they charge an assessment fee. Or else give it up and sell on eBay as described for parts.

    Did the issue ever get fixed? I'm facing a similar problem with my Galaxy Note 3 N9005. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
