Power button stuck?  Let’s check for that!

If your phone looks to be in a “bootloop” where the phone starts to boot, then shuts itself down, then starts the boot process again, it might be caused by a faulty power button.  

 

Here’s a test.  Push and hold the power button.  Just hold it.  Does it appear to have the same behavior of boot looping?  If so, then it is likely a power button failure.

 

If it is exhibiting a different behavior when you push and hold the power button, it could still be a power button failure.  Especially if it boots up fully while pressing the button, it is likely a power button failure.  Why is that?  Because, it should be rebooting constantly with the power button pressed in.  If it is not, then there is a contact issue.
