Power button stuck, phone won't turn on or charge

The replacement for this phone is currently in the mail but I am really hoping to get this one working for an hour just to get the pictures etc.. off. The power button is stuck down without any event (being dropped) triggering it. I took the thing apart and the actual little white button will not click anymore like the volume ones do. When plugged in, the red LED does not appear and it doesn't charge. If I take the battery out and put it back in the samsung logo pops up for about 2 seconds then the screen goes black again. Same scenario when plugged into the computer or wall except it is the charging logo. My computer does not register it as being connected. I've tried every combination of buttons recommended to me but it doesn't respond to any type of reset. I've also tried using someone else's battery which did not do anything. I'm avoiding taking the power button off because insurance does require you to send in the old phone and I don't want any charges for my handiwork.

I also have this issue on the power button. It won't turn on. The LED Lights won't turn on. And not only that, The Home Key cable is ripped out. For some odd reason. Also buying the parts is not too bad, By the fact I don't even know what I'm doing with my phone…. Until I take it to a Tech guy. But might give me a tax for 2 SIMPLE LITTLE PARTS. But lets get into the phone. When charged, in tends to get hot whenever I change batteries. And When i get a correct battery. it shows the charge logo. But doesn't charge. What does that mean? Can someone help why this happens?

My power button got stuck and I used divider (not sure is it correct word so here's the link : http://www.limes.hr/_cache/MARS_554_Basi... :) )

Just try to move button with it, and after that take a vacuum cleaner and let it do its job over button.

No problem anymore :D

Gs4 wont power up. ... I've tried beating on the button. pressing home .power ..up down.. simultaneously .... Blowing compressed air into it .prying on it.. only thing that worked was to remove the back/frame and put a few drops of oil into the power button.

open your phone up and remove the plastic power button and it should boot up normally but you wont be able to press on that power button and to fix that you can get a new one or you can just use assistance menu on galaxy s4 to turn it off and on or just to lock your screen
