So the power button on my GS3 is fried. (I am pretty sure at least)

Anyways at this point that is not really the problem. So a few hours ago I was able to boot my phone back up without the power button by taking the battery out and putting it back in. However, silly me wanted to boot into recovery to try something, but now my phone won't even boot. When I take the battery out and put it back in, it boots to the screen where it says "booting recovery" on the top left and then stops working. If I try to go into download mode, it shows the screen asking me if I want to go into download mode and regardless of if i press volume up or volume down the phone stops working.

I'm hoping there is some nifty work around for this. Should be fun Thank you in advance!

EDIT: In short, I am looking for a way to cancel booting into recovery.

Sounds like you will have to replace the power button before you get to see if the emmc chip is corrupt. Unplanned shut down can corrupt the partition being written: system, data or recovery.
