How to solve my Samsung S5 that won't power on?

I connected my Samsung S5 to its charger as it was battery empty but the temperature was hot after several minutes and it never powered on again. I tried charging the battery into a battery clip charger and its voltage seems still working fine as I tested it using Voltmeter multi-tester. Also already tried all the button press combinations that I read from different forums search on the internet. Hope you can give further solutions to resolve my Samsung S5. Thank you in advance

S5 is not turning on. The power button has been broken.

I dropped my phone. The power button doesn't work now. The smartphone is on 45 % and charges. I have tried multiple methods, and they didn't work. Please help!

Repairing a power button may require some skill and knowledge; thus, it is recommended to bring the smartphone to a Samsung service center for repairs. As a temporary solution, tighten up the black screws on the motherboard or press hard on the upper-left part of the smartphone when taking the back cover off. You will need to disassemble your smartphone for that. A short guide on disassembly is available online. If you want to back up your data and the power button still cannot get fixed, then press the home button of the smartphone once or twice or ask someone to call you up to unlock the smartphone. If you manage to unlock your S5 that way, then you can install Power Button to Volume Button, which will replace your power button with the volume button.

The lock button isn't working on my Samsung S5?

Originally, the lock button wasn't working. Occasionally I could turn it on if it was charging. Then my mic stopped working. So I removed the battery and replaced it and tried to turn it back on again. And now it just won't turn on. It has 95% battery but just won't turn on.

My Samsung can't turn off and I can't delete texts?

Both boxes with the delete button in is in the same place on the screen, I am wondering if it is the screen software - had the same problem last year, and the touch screen (or whatever the part is) had to be replaced. I have tried: Taken the Battery out several times. I think it was caused by: Have no idea. The phone is also very hot.

How do I fix my Samsung S4 mini when it has blacked out?

My phone froze so I just switched it off. Then it stopped working and I couldn't switch it back on. I've tried everything from taking out the battery to holding down the power up, home and power buttons simultaneously. I can't afford to get it repaired and I would love to get it fixed fast.

Peel Smart remote has frozen my Samsung S5. I can't get it to turn off, or reset?

I have tried holding down the power and volume+ for 10 seconds or longer but nothing happens. I have tried: Holding down the power, power plus volume, power plus volume plus home. I think it was caused by: Random floating peel smart remote icon

Samsung Galaxy S5 turning off and restarting hard to turn back on?

Hello, My newly acquired (certified) refurbished Samsung Galaxy S5 from Glyde.com is now on the second day of use randomly either restarting or powering off and taking a great deal of manipulation of the power button to turn back on that I believe is seated improperly especially in comparison to my fiance's identical phone. It is not battery related. In any way shape or form. I have tried: I have switched batteries with my fiance his phone had not encountered my issue with his battery or mine. I have also taken the battery out held the power down to use up any charge and placed the battery back in. I have done a factory reset even though when I got the phone one had been done already and I installed all of the system updates first once I got the phone. I think it was caused by: In comparison to my fiance's phone the power button is wobbly at the top and bottom and sort of teeters back and forth when pressing. I am not a professional but my fiance's educated guess is that the power button is seated improperly and causing the phone to randomly either restart or power down. Other than that the same could be said for the great amount of difficulty required to get it to turn back on through manipulation of the power button as it teeters when pressed.

Samsung S5 will not turn on after replacing SIM, I have just taken my SIM card out and replaced this with a new SIM card, put the battery back and it now will not turn on. I have held down all the buttons suggested and checked that had a full battery which it displays when plugged in, have also changed back to the old SIM just to see if it works and It still will not come on.

Is there any other way to get the phone to switch on?
