    My S4 Galaxy wont turn on and my battery reads 3.1volts with a meter, does it have to be 3.8v to turn on the phone or do I have another issue?

    If the battery is low the phone will usually vibrate but not turn on.
    Yes, 3.1V is very low considering that the true reading of a fully charged battery is usually above 4V.

    If you're trying to charge the battery while it's in the phone.. You might :
    Want to try a different cord.
    Try different charger or usb port.
    It can also be a bad phone Micro Usb /charging port.
    Good luck
