Default [Q] I9500 stuck in reboot loop, can't even do a hard reset

Hi guys,
i was just using my I9500, and out of nowhere it just turned off and keeps on turning off the screen then lighting up to the galaxy logo then off again
tried to hard reset the phone (vol up, home and power) and to enter download mode (it does enter download mode for just a sec then restarts again.
when i connect the charger it keeps on displaying the empty battery pic and tries to stuck again and repeat (starting from the empty battery image), although its at least 30% charged
help guys .. thanks in advance

Oh my this problem seems to be very popular. Anyway, it's happened to me before. Leave the battery out for like a day or two and then try it again.

You have a faulty power button, a damaged battery or some other hardware damage. My guess would be number 1 or 2.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v3.0

Retired:

Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 : AOKP 4.2.1
HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5
HTC HD2 | DarkStone1337 [FroyoStone Sense - V3.2]
HTC Desire : Oxygen v2.1.3

I was guessing number 1 too, but have no experience with the hardware what so ever :S, I guess I'm taking it to a shop tonight I guess :S
