    Its the USB port at the bottom. Samsung phones detect what they are connected to using resistance. This is causing the switching and also triggering the media scanner as it thinks there may have been a change and checks.

    Switch off and take out the battery. Get a very fine brush like those very small modellers/make-up brushes or similar and try and wipe out. They have to be very fine. If you have any air duster spray, spray it in there. Be careful and make sure you use the non-conductive type used for cleaning electronic equipment. Leave it 10 mins after spraying just in case there is any condensed dampness there (air duster sprays sometimes tend to freeze the air) hopefully it will do the trick. You could even try blowing in there very hard.

    There is a chance its either some contaminant on the board itself or the actual electronics faulty. If you aren't confident on checking then returning under warranty is the only solution really.
