stuck power button? boot screen loop

Recommended Posts


I am running a custom ROM (Darky's 9.5) on a rooted Galaxy S with Voodoo Fix. All has been fine for the past week since I changed to this ROM.

However, today, suddenly the phone switched off and then immediately turns on by itself and as soon as the Galaxy S screen appears it restarts again and the loop continues.

I removed the battery, but as SOON as I put the battery back in, it turns on by itself and resumes the on off sequence.

So its IMPOSSSIBLE to get into recovery mode, it doesnt work even though I have it enabled. I can get into Download mode but it lasts 5 seconds as the phone switches off and back on.

I can connect via USB to computer in download mode, but like I said it lasts 5seconds.

Is my power button jammed or is there something sinister going on? lol

Warranty is not an option...

Thanks for any advice!

It resolved all by itself. Basically, I got fed up and I left it to loop back and forth from the boot screen....and after a few minutes I returned to the phone screen to find it had booted up fully to the normal desktop.

Very strange. I might just have a dodgy phone.
