Any time friend.
not applicable with non-removable battery
If you have a Non removable battery then:
1. Go here and find the battery secret code if you are ruining a Samsung Galaxy and on that screen run the test at the bottom of the screen after punching in the code. If you battery is bad you will have to get it replaced or get a new device from the manufacturer if its under warranty.
2. Uninstall any recent software that might be triggering battery issues or problems.
3. As a last resort if its a software issue that has arisen recently because you did a update of your device it might not be stable and you should ether reflash or re-run the setup.
4. Clear the cache partition, to do this use the button combination shown here but do not reset and choose the option to clear cache instead.
4.If all else fails then you can hard reset your device that can help in some cases but be sure to backup your important data.
Thank you very much for taking the time to post this tip. I’m hoping it will save me from resorting to combat measures on my phone, i.e. hurling it like a grenade or using it for Sniper target practice.
lol I really hope it does not come to that for you and your device Kathy.
Thanks. I have cleaned the battery contacts already but I may try cleaning the pins also.
When I off the phone it turns back on itself how to fix
Power button might be stuck-clean it or try to nudge it free.
For the problem you described, I believe you did well. However, the problem on my phone is more puzzling. I turned off my phone to save battery but when I turned it back it on, it keeps switching off and on in a loop. It has been like this for 3 days. I have to to keep the battery out because the phone and battery are running hot after multiple restarts. Is this the end of my N3? What can be reason and solution to this?
You are stuck in a boot loop you have two options: 1. Do a hard reset if that fails then you will have to try to flash your device.
