Default S3 Wont Turn on Charging boot loop

Hi,
My I9305 S3 Wont Turn on via the power button.
I connect it via USB and it loads the following in this order:

*Connect USB
1. Need to charge logo
[split second]
2. Battery charging logo
[1 second]
3. Reset
[repeat 1 2 3]

*photo of the battery icons displayed*

You cant get to the Android Settings

I got a phone tech to try another battery.
That didnt work.

He then took it apart and it said it isnt the power button.
He is unsure why.

It was flashed back to stock after using SentinelROM and every now and again it would restart by itself, now it wont turn on.
Any ideas?

happened to me also. try change different cable or charger & try to connect to PC. and check if your micro usb port clean or not.

and if it work, let the battery charged for a while before turn it on.

I tried 3 different cables connected to PC, a different battery and it didnt work.
It wont turn on unless you have the charger in so im assuming its picking it up fine.
I made sure the micro USB port was clean.
I kept it on there for an hour once, boot looping, and yeah still didnt turn on.
Its got me stumped.

Report your own post and ask a moderator to move it for you, the i9305 has a separate q&a forum.

If it won't boot into download mode then try a usb jig, but sounds like you need a new motherboard -take it to a different phone tech.
