my power button stopped functioning and I kept the phone on through keeping it charged, nut the phone was dropped and the battery fell out and now when I plug it up to the charger the battery loading screen pops up and shuts off with out going to the charging screen. when taken off the charger the Samsung logo screen pops up and shuts off repeatedly...any thoughts on how I can fix this without buying anything?

The lock button quitting is a fairly common thing on the galaxy s4. Without buying anything there isn't really a good way to get it going again. When those quit, they make the phone think the button is constantly being pushed. Thats a problem for obvious reasons.

I suppose you could remove the button from the board (this is a board mounted SMD component, a moderate level solder job) and boot it by holding the volume down (or up, I don't remember) and the home button as you plug in the charger. That would get you by but if you've done that much work, spend the $5 for a new button and install it.

How do I buy a new button? Are they easy to instal with just the right screwdrivers to take the phone apart?
