    to turn your phone on try the following action :

    plug in your usb connector into your phone for exactly 3 sec and take it off ...

    you must try several times ...

    if the battery icon appears take usb cable off and try again.

    It works for sure ... but you have to be as accurate as possible : 3 sec ...

    Well there is a solution for it.....follow instructions as mentioned ..
    1. pull out the battery.
    2. connect phone with charger and switch the charger "ON".
    3. press "volume up" and "menu button" simultaneously for upto 10-15 seconds.
    4. leave buttons and insert battery soon..
    5. samsung logo will appear and it will run in recovery mode.
    6. just press "menu button" to reboot..and u r done!!!!
    Remember u always need a charger to do this process.....without charger it is impossible..
    Note- U may not get success in first try...keep calm ...u will succeed in 3-5 trials....once u done it...u will become habitual to it and then it will be much easier 4 u...i m doing it from last 2years.

    A couple days ago the power button on my Galaxy S3 began to randomly send my phone into a restart loop from hell. I had to pull the battery and wait 5 minutes before it would stop. This happened several times. I can’t even begin to express how crazy this made me.

    I tried using Gravity to fix the problem but I wasn’t able to lock the phone whenever I wanted
    because Gravity uses the stock lock-screen settings. It either locked every time I turned it on or not at all. After a lot of trial and error I finally hit on a combination of apps that worked for me and
    I’ve decided I’d like to share this fix here. I’ve only used this with Nova, I doubt it will work with a stock launcher.

    The apps.

    Nova Launcher Prime. (Y’all should have it anyway)
    Smart Applock (free version)
    Tasker with the Auto-Shortcut plugin.

    The steps:

    Set up Gravity however you want it. ( I’ve found that it’s less annoying with the proximity sensor turned off and the sensitivity set way down around 4 or 5)
    Gravity has a ton of options. So it takes a while to get it dialed in.

    Set Smart App-Lock to lock just Nova launcher. This lets you lock the phone from a shortcut you can create using Tasker with the Auto-Shortcut plug-in.

    Here’s how I set up the shortcut. It’s extra detailed in case If you haven’t had any experience with Tasker.

    1. Create a new task in Tasker. I named mine “Lock Toggle”
    2. Touch the +.
    3. Go to “plugin”
    4. Then choose AutoShortcut.

    5. Configuration. Choose “Smart App-Lock” from the list. Hit OK. *If “unlock now” pops up just hit cancel. It will still work. Press the check-mark to exit configuration.

    6. Press the back arrow (next to action edit) at the top to go back to the previous screen which will now have an entry saying “Smart Applock(on/off)”

    7. Repeat steps 2-6 once. This creates an automatic toggle. The toggle launches Smart App-locks pattern lock (or whatever lock method you like) when the screen is turned off by the next step.

    8. Hit the + again. Go to plugin then Auto-Shortcut. Configuration – Gravity screen off.

    That’s it. Hit the back arrow again. Then exit Tasker.

    Gestures are one of the many great things about Nova Launcher. I have mine set-up to turn the screen off (without the screen-lock) on a double tap to the desktop. And to turn it off (with the screen-lock) when I swipe one of my icons.

    To do that. Long-press the icon. Press edit. Swipe action. Shortcuts. Task shortcut, then the shortcut you just created in Tasker. Or you could just have a shortcut on the desktop if you’d prefer.

    One more thing. You’ll need to assign an icon to the shortcut the first time you try and launch it. I just downloaded a pic of an ignition lock that I liked and used that.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck.
