Default GS4 shuts down within two seconds of startup

My GS4 was stable for months but started shutting down randomly recently. The frequency increased with time and now it shuts down(display turns off) in a couple of seconds after I turn it on. It does not even stay on long enough to boot to system or recovery or download. Any ideas on how to fix are appreciated.

I tried swapping the battery with a new one but it did not help. The power button does not work anymore and I can only get the phone to start(for 2 seconds before the display turns off) sometimes by taking out and putting in the battery.

The phone is rooted and was running CM 11 and was stable for months before this behavior started. I did not change or do anything to cause this behavior.

Sounds like hardware failure.
