Plug Problem with power button

Hi, I'm facing a strange problem with my 2 years old Galaxy Note. It auto turns on as if power on switch is pressed as soon as you insert the battery. Also, if I only press the home button and volume down key together I go into download mode without even pressing power on button, similar thing when I try to enter recovery mode (I just need to press volume up + home button, without power on). So I may think of a stuck poweron button, but phone doesn't cycle in rebooting itself as it should if I pressed continuously its poweron button. Could it be the battery? Sometimes I have problems charging it... the phone stays in charge 3 seconds yes and 3 second no even if I take out the usb power cable (the icon blinks with the little thunder every 3 seconds). If I plug back and forth the usb power cable for 3 seconds twice the problem disappears... what can you say about it? Tried full recovery with stock 4.1.2 rom without success

This may or may not be a power button problem. I had this problem myself! Try removing your battery, cleaning carefully your micro usb port with a thin toothpick and try gently moving it up or down but really carefully!!!, insert your battery and try again. I had problems 2 3 days after cleaning it, but after that no more problems. Also see if your battery has a little bulge. If yes, then you should replace that too.
