My brothers S3 is soft bricked, it boots but will not go into recovery mode. It will go into download mode but before I am able to flash anything it shuts off. I made sure that the battery was fully charged. Any suggestions?

Whwn you go into download mode are you connected to ODIN? Does Odin at least see the device?

Sometimes the power button gets stuck. Will always reboot.

So how can I fix that? Will I have to send it to Samsung?

Make sure it has a satisfying click when pressed. If yes than I'm wrong. If not than try pressing it a couple times or spraying compressed air at it.

It is a satisfying click, I don't think that its the issue, any other ideas?
