Exclamation [Q] Phone turning itself off and on. Continuous never-ending cycle.

My phone is acting really strange. It turns itself off and then on again and again in this cycle as if the power button is always being pressed.

I can sometimes get into my recovery (CWM) but when I try to go deeper into the menu. I get kicked back to the main screen as if im pressing the power button to go "back" until the phone gets completely turned off again.

I noticed something too. When I pull out the battery and put it back on. The phone turns itself on without me even pressing the power button. Then the cycle continues again.

Very frustrating.

Could this be software, ROM, recovery, partition related or does this sound something hardware related?

if you are on stock rom backup first then factory reset if problem still. unroot your device be in stock rom then go to service center because you can change hardware buttons even if you rooted

Quick update in case someone bumps into the same problem.
I just got back from the repair shop. The power switch was indeed broken. The technician replaced it with a new one and the phone works fine one.
