    Samsung Galaxy Precedent shuts on and off
    The phone shuts off by itself, on the charger or not, no matter what I'm doing with it. I also noticed that the power button (just trying to turn off the screen) tries to turn off my phone every time rather than just when I hold it down. Help?

    Well to start it sound lime you might have a hardware issue with the power button and/or it maybe be come loose from from the socket and may need to be reseated or shimmed.
    Do you have acistom kernel installed? Is so, over clocking and or under clocking can and will cause reboots. If that's the case then you may want to change your kernel settings.

    I would also maybe recommend that you boot to your custom recovery and wipe the dalvik cache and cache to see if it might help resolve your issue.

    If that still doesn't work you could try booting to recovery and performing a Factory Data reset. This will generally take care of alto of ongoing and odd issues.

    Good luck! Of you need anymore help feel free to ask!
