Default Broken power button. Fix

My power button was recently acting funky and my phone was shutting off and stuff.

I was also noticing that the power menu would come up and stuff when I went to lock the phone. It is now stuck and phone will not boot fully. Can't use recovery or even download mode. Just shuts off.

I now have decided that I will go about fixing it. The power switch is soldered to the board. I ordered a five pack and a heat gun. ($9.99 on amazon for a 5 pack. And $22.45 for a heat gun that I will use later on.)

I will be posting pictures of the process when the items come in. Either this Saturday or Sunday or by Monday or Tuesday.(depending on shipping) If a video is needed, I might do one if I can get someone to record for me.

I am also going to try and fix my Captivate power button because it is broken as well. Let me know if you are interested in seeing this.

Yeah it is more common than people would believe. I actually tried to baby my s3. Used volume wake and my home button. Still killed it in less than a year.
