Default [Q] HELP!! Phone won't turn on!

I was working out at the gym earlier today and when I wanted to take my phone out to check messages, my phone just shut off all of a sudden and wouldn't turn back on. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in and it doesn't turn on when I push the power button. Also, sometimes, the phone would buzz and show the samsung logo and the cm logo, but then the screen would turn black again. I can't go into recovery mode either. When I got home and tried to charge it, it never charged either. It just did the same thing and buzzed and then show the samsung and cm logo and then the screen would go black again. At first, I was thinking it might have bricked, but seeing as how I never did any firmware changes to the phone, it shouldn't have bricked. I only opened the phone to check the time. Do you guys think it's the phones problem? Or is there any way to fix this?


Any help would be appreciated!

Never mind guys. I took it to the repair shop and the guy said that it was my power button chip that was malfunctioning. He replaced the chip and it worked again. Thanks for the feedback though. Really appreciate it.
