Phone keeps shutting off

My phone won't stay on. after i turn it on it immediately shuts itself off. The only time it doesn't do this is when it is plugged into the charger. This just started happening this afternoon, earlier this morning it was working fine.

    i turn it on and call or text someone and about 30 seconds later it shuts off and then turns its self on again and does the same thing over and over and over again. it's also fully charged and worked fine this morning. it's basically got a mind of its own! i've tried charging and reinserting the battery and sim.

    my phone was working fine all day, i've been having problems with the battery life and i dropped it in water a few days ago but it seemed to be fine. all of a sudden it kept turning itself off, which has happened before but it didnt stop. it stays on for two seconds, shuts off, and turns back on and keeps repeating itself.

    My Nokia 6126 keeps turning itself on and off. Then I tried to turn it off on my own and it just wouldn't. I finally had to take the battery out. This phone seems to be possessed.

Its something with the battery, which online you can get another for about $20, but it isnt a guaranteed fix you may need to replace phone my daughter took hers back first they gave her a new batt, only worked for moment then gave her new phone... i only paid $100 for phone by time replace battery and bat might as well but new one quality of boost phones not so great anymore very disappointed

My STR-DE835 receiver will not stay powered on

Most likely bad output transistors and a couple of resistors. mp1620 and mn2488 are the part #s for the transistors. If you take it to a repair shop you are looking at spending $100-$130

Samsung SCH A660 Keeps Shutting Off and Is Slow to Start Up

I've had my phone awhile, and it has always started slowly. It has probably been dropped to many times, or you have many recorded, downloaded, or contact files which just make it slower to start up. Like a computer. When you shut it off, keep it open until the SAMSUNG logo has disappeared and the screen is black, otherwise it might/will stay on.
