Trouble turning on, but will turn on eventually.
So I have an old S3 that I don't use any more because it was !#^&^$^ me off. I figured I'd practice some phone repairs on it.
Anyways, the phone won't boot up most of the time. I will push the power button and the samsung logo will pop up and then nothing. I take out the battery and keep trying until it finally boots up. also if I smack it against my palm it helps get it to boot. Is there a loose chip? bad power button? Is it a known issue? Let me know and thanks for your time.
