Battery pull?



Definitely looks like the power button isn't working. Can you take it into Apple for warranty?

Seems like you installed iOS 5 wrong.

Try restoring it and installing iOS 5 again.

I think this is the most plausible cause but it was never dropped....

Perhaps put it in recovery (aka reset) and then update again?

can't enter DFU every time I try if it's like the power button is randomly pressed causing it to come out of DFU mode
