Samsung Galaxy S4 will not boot, turns off after 2 seconds
My Samsung S4 does not fully boot. It turns off after two seconds after the Samsung screen and before the Cyanogen boot screen. How do I resolve this issue?
I can't boot into recovery -- it never gets that fair. I also can't reflash as the phone turns itself off shortly after it gets to the flash screen. The phone also randomly restarts. I've tried swapping the battery too.
This is the infamous power button problem. I had this too. There are some guides that speak of cleaning the power button, but for me I found this rather rough solution to be effective.
- SOLUTION: Galaxy S3/S4,S5, Note, Tabs ALL Samsungs (not Booting Up? Keeps Rebooting? Not turning on? (just hit the phone HARD on the power button)
Alright guys, so I'm back -- it's 2016/04/25. My S5 just broke so I'm downgrading until it comes in the mail. Googling for the same problem and I found my own answer. This time hitting it hard didn't work. So I sprayed the button liberally with DeoxIT D5 and violla, back in business. Hold the phone button side up and just soak it!
