Try as last chance connecting the data cable to pc, then push vol- and while pushing it plug in the data cable connected to the pc. If it doesn't enter in download mode, service center (i am really site you are the first one in the world with a hard brick).

You are wrong, service center takes up to one or two month while he will be without he phone. Sometimes people doesn't know battery could be completely dead, or a different way to enter in download, etc... What could solve the issue in only some minutes instead months. This is one of the reason people in xda are here trying to help people. When every software actuation (or an very easy hardware manipulation) is done unsuccessfully, people advice to take it to service center.

No, this is the only part from a smartphone you can't buy as a separately part, because changing motherboard would change also completely your phone, imei, etc... And possibly the price would be close to the price for a new s4... It would have no sense.

Did you mess around with bootloader related stuff? If you have, chances are that you have unfourtanatly bricked your device. Let hope that's not the case.

Take it to the service center, they will give you a diagnostic and a proposal for the reparation, and then you will decide if you want to pay for a functional repaired s4, or you just want to sell it as separately parts...

May I ask, where did you exactly buy it from. Sometimes if you bought it straight from a shop such as Vodafone, Optus, AT&T etc they may repair it. Mine was a hard brick. No power whatsoever and my carrier repaired it for free (thankfully) Since the s4 is a popular, they may be able to repair it in a somewhat short time

I see. Well we can't really do much to help cure your i9005. It was a experience though..
