Your settings and data will be lost, but a factory rest might solve your problem.


TEST: NO CABLE PLUGGED IN: Remove then reinsert the battery and if the phone turns on by itself and then takes approx 10 sec's to turn off and then starts vibrating every couple of seconds then its for sure a power button problem, its stuck.

The key thing you need to establish is if reinserting the battery restarts the phone[b] w/out u touching the power button, if so then the button is stuck.
