    Ok guys im hoping someone can help me because im losing the will to live.....

    It all started when I droped my S4 on the bathroom floor and cracked the display. So I bought a new display with the frame. Swaped everything over put all the case back on. phone wouldn't boot up.

    Only thing it would do is flash the samsung logo when I put the battery in. Then I read about there being problems with the power button. and I noticed if the back cover was off the phone was fine booted up no problem. but soon as I put the cover back on the phone wont boot up.

    So I thought ok maybe a faulty power button and thats being pressed in on a loop with the case, so I took the button off and im waiting for a replacement. SO with the button off I thought that was the end of my problems. NOPE phone is still locking the screen when I press down on the PCB. and if I put the case on the phone it will not boot.

    HELPPPPP MEEEE

    Thankyou Jamie

    thats the strange thing, the screen seems to work fine. but as soon as i press down on the board near the power button the screen goes off and if I hold it long enough the phone will shut off. But ive removed the power button lol. wish I hadnt of now because that wasn't the problem, now ive got to somehow get a new one on there.

    I think the vibrator has stopped working also. its so fustrating im going away on friday and I need my phone. I see so many comments online about people replacing there screen and there phone not booting after but no one as an answer of it.

    found out the problem, the insulator that keeps the MB off the display and a gap in it, so everytime I pressed on the MB the current would go through it to the display and short it out. sending display back for refund
