[Q] Lock Button Issues
Recently my Captivate glide has been having many issues. Originally it started when my phone would just randomly turn off for no reason, I attributed this to overheating and figured maybe it was a normal thing. Eventually it got to the point where the battery would hold no charge and I could not power on the phone. I replaced the battery after noticing that it was swollen and this seemingly fixed the issue. Though after a week or so I noticed there were still a few problems with it in regards to it going off randomly and coming back on but nothing major. Last week though I was at the gym and it dropped from my pocket I picked it up, put it back on but a few seconds later it turned off again. I just figured it needed to charge. I tried later to turn it back on that's when I noticed that the phone would keep randomly going on and off constantly and the lock button no longer worked when it was on so the only way to unlock it was to slide it out. I figured it was just a matter of replacing the button but it got worst and now the phone wont stay on, It comes on for a second, boots up then turns off, the battery has 0% at all times and even if it's on the charger and shows the charging icon, it won't stay on. For the few minutes that it is on for, the lock function spasms and the phone keeps locking and unlocking itself, eventually showing the lock button menu then finally going off and coming back on. I gave the phone to my friend to check out as he fixes a lot of phone, he took it apart but there was no damage to the button or anything holding it down that would cause the problem, he used a tester to test it and found that it was working fine. He thinks it might just be a software issue and suggested I reinstall the OS. Does anyone have any insight as to what might be the problem and a solution?
TL;DR Lock button on phone acts as if it's constantly being pressed and won't remain on for longer than a few minutes and even when it is on, just keeps locking and unlocking itself before shutting off.
