My Galaxy S4 won't charge or switch on?

Phone won't charge or switch on and just keeps vibrating every 5 seconds any ideas?


Remove and reinsert the battery and try turning it on. If you continue to have issues, try seeing if there's a stuck button somewhere on your device. You might also consider resetting your device to factory default settings to correct the issue.

I'm having trouble powering on my Samsung Galaxy S4?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4, I tried to turn on my phone and the phone will not power on, it will vibrate and shows the Samsung logo then it will power back off. I will appreciate it if you can give me some great tips to retrieve the information I need and my granddaughters pics. Thanking you in advance. I have tried: I have charged it over night, I have hit the power button and it constantly vibrates and shows logo, I have tried car charger, and the charger that comes with the phone, I also thought about buying a new battery. I think it was caused by: I was in the middle of texting and saw a quick message but could not read it..
