    Samsung Galaxy S3 is constantly stuck on the Samsung logo. The moment the battery is put in the Samsung logo appears, screen goes black then the Logo reappears again and again, it ceases to stop. I've tried the method of all the button holding combinations but none seem to work,

    FOR EXAMPLE: As soon as I put the battery in, it automatically turns on. I hold down the power, home and volume down buttons simultaneously. This then brings me to the menu about installing custom firmware but whether I just sit there for 2 seconds or choose an option (no matter what it is) it goes black then gets stuck in the loop again.

    Notes - Used to be fixable by fiddling around with the power button or smacking it onto the bed
    - Similar issue prior to this where even a slight touch on the power button would set it into the loop. (the button seemed to be stuck but moves normally when you press it)

    It sounds like a stuck power button. When you hold the power button for several seconds, it starts a reboot. If the power button is stuck down, that would mimic what you are seeing.

    try manipulating the device via KIES3. Recover it from there and if that doesn't fix the problem, it is safe to assume it is a hardware problem.
    cheers.

    If it is hardware related, it would require disassembling the device to possibly change the power button hardware. A solution would be asking if a professional repair shop to look at the device, give an estimate, and then authorize the repair if it is cost effective.
