Not charging or powering on

When I plug my phone in, it shows the charging icon, the it disapers and vibrates, then it shows up... over and over. When I hold the power button it shows the Samsung logo, then just shuts off.

If you have not done so, I would suggest trying another battery. From your description it sounds like a failing battery. The battery at this point may be only capable of supplying​ enough power to turn the phone on but does not have enough power to boot up the phone. It takes a higher voltage to boot the operating system than it does to switch on the phone. So you may consider replacing the battery first to see if it fixes the issue.
