My Phone Keeps turning off and then turning itself back on?

when i turn on my phone and it does its power up, i wait for my service to come on. before the service gets turned on the phone restarts itself everytime. it continues to do this over and over and over until it runs out of battery. i tried hooking it up to the chargers, and i tried hooking it up to the computer. it continues to do the same thing. i tried to restart the phone manually but this still hasnt fixed the problem. Do i need to buy a new phone?

I have that very same problem: my phone doesn't power reset while in Fastboot mode, but I have tried 10 or so different ROMs without success... I have been careful about wiping internal memory before and after each flash, with no success... what would be the next thing to troubleshoot?

Motorla phones can do this with they have a problem with their boot loader or software files.

It should be possible to load into FastBoot mode to re-flash the phone's ROM and hopefully resolve the issue.

This is however a fairly in-depth process, before getting in to it, make sure the phone will actually boot and run in FastBoot. To do this, turn the phone off, then hold the Vol+, Vol- and power buttons all at the same time until a white screen appears, then release. This is FastBoot, if the phone doesn't power reset here then i would suggest a ROM, for this I direct you to a guide already made, Motorola Droid RAZR FastBoot

I hope this works for you, i've used this method on other motorola phones such as the Atrix2 and the Bionic.

If nothing else, it's easier to try this than to replace the phone.

by aira orpiana

None of that wont work, take my advice, get a new phone because you been hacked, basically you already been spied on, they can installed apps without you knowing, add unusual files in your storage which is viruses, if you have a two way camera they probably watching you like a perv, they can reset your phone anytime unless your on wifi or on data network, pretty much they are cyber bullying you which I called it but they is might be a solution that might help, go to settings then apps then all apps and start disable all the apps that are unusual, i had the problem in about few min. ago i think its working fine so far if not ill let yall know

Mine was turning itself on and off by itself today. When I finally got it to turn off and stay off I opened the cover for the sim card on the side of the Razr and the sim card was loose. I pushed it back in until it locked and problem solved. Everything is working fine again.

Just make sure you don't take the sim card out while the phone is on as this may damage the sim card and/or the phone itself.

I dropped my phone way too many times and now all it does is turn itself on and off never getting to the start screen. and it only does it if its plugged in. Its just off, off the charger. took out the battery to see if that's the problem. Nope. Tried the fast boot. It keeps the phone from turning on again but a white screen never shows up. Its an alcatel touch android not a motorola though. My boyfriend took the back off with his handy dandy tool kit, and there seems to be nothing wrong with the circuits. Nothing seems obviously out of place, loose or broken anyway.

Any more great ideas?

ok, found out it was bc the battery wasn't touching the prongs, a plastic piece had fallen loose. I wedged it back under the battery, and it works just fine.

My phone has been doing the same thing. I was going onto my online banking when it foreclosed on me going back to google search. I turned my phone off to resest it and turned it back on . Now it goes on and off with the annoying dinging blue intel screen. Do I need a new phone or throw it against the wall? I'm at that point.

I recently dropped my phone about 2-3 times and now, it keeps going on and off. When i charge it, the battery is at say 80 percent and when it starts going off and on as usual, it boils down to say 40 percent within 2mins.

Any suggestions? perhaps ? I'll be glad to hear.

Thanks. P.S it's an LG Flex.

I appreciate there are other reasons why a phone turns itself on and off. Mine was doing this, I took out the SD card and it was fine. Usually, when you ask that the SD card be the default storage, the phone turns itself off to reset. I think my SD card corrupted that's why it was turning my phone on and off.

A charging issue can make a device turn on and off. A bad battery, a bad charger, a weak charger, or more commonly, bent pins in the charging port.

I don't think this will apply to everybody, but I have a spare battery for my galaxy s5 and have found it only lasts so long these days until it starts turning off and on constantly. Recharging it in my battery charger brings it back for a while, so I think it might be dying, even though I don't think I have had it that long. My other battery that came with the phone works fine.
