My phone randomly stopped working the other day. When its off, it'll start up on its own (without the power button being touched) but only get past the "samsung" screen a couple times and then shut back off. I tried flashing the stock firmware via odin but it fails every time (I've used versions 1.86, 3.04 and 3.09). As of now, my phone is totally useless. All I can do is put it into download mode. Any ideas?

This is what odin says every time

Odon is failing because you are trying to downgrade the firmware. After 4.3 you cannot do this anymore. It looks like you probably updated to 4.4.2 via ota. Correct? If so there is no firmware you can flash as att refuses to release it.

Take your battery out and put it back in. If it tries to turn on by itself your power switch is bad and needs replacing.
