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 in internet.. . Hope you can give further solutions to resolve my Samsung S5. Thank you in advance

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.
