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.

There are multiple causes for this:
- Bad battery.
- System Software is corrupt. Probably not in your case as you can get it to boot.
- Nand flash memory chip on logic board has gone loose.
Have seen the issue on a few Samsung Galaxy S3's but I will say it isn't a common issue.
Have you tried cleaning the charger port with a toothpick or something equivilant? It may help.
Have not tried cleaning the charge port, I don't think it's a bad battery.
