This problem started a couple of weeks ago, where the phone would just shut off sometimes, and then, as long as there is a battery inside, even if I don't press the power button, the phone attempts to turn on, and it shows the "Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-i9500" big white text, and it keeps doing that every 5 seconds but the phone doesn't turn on. If I plug it into the charger, the symbol changes from the Galaxy one, to an empty Battery symbol, with the little loading circle on top of it, but it's a static symbol, and it also keeps disappearing and coming back every 5 seconds.
So, at first, I thought it was a Battery issue, so I ordered a couple of new batteries online... Got a new battery, and the new battery didn't work at first, still had the same issue, but after taking it out and putting it back in for like 5 times, it finally worked, and has been good for a couple of weeks.
Last night, my phones battery drained and shut off, and I wasn't able to turn the phone back on since, I'm still getting the same issue. I had 2 other new batteries lying around, tried both of them, but no luck. I tried using a different charger, still nothing.
I'm also unable to access safe or recovery mode, as as soon as I put the battery in, the phone automatically initiates the boot process, without me pressing the power button (Could the power button be stuck? AFAIK it's not, as the phone has been working fine).
