Phone repeatedly turns on after shutting it off


Thread Starter
Jul 1, 2020
Hi there, first post here, so forgive any mistakes.
My phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 9) has started acting up since yesterday, after I left it on for a while though didn't use it.
First of all: After I press the power button once to shut off my phone, the screen immediately lights up again.
Next: Whenever I try to drag down the notification bar at the top of the phone, it goes back up almost immediately.
Lastly: When I go to view a video on YouTube, it starts playing random videos.
I'm desperate for answers, and even tried Factory Resetting the phone (I am aware that was a stupid and impulsive decision on my part), which only prolonged these problems.
Edit: Now these problems seem to be happening in an on and off fashion. YouTube works fine now, my phone will stay off, and my notifications can be viewed just fine. However, this is only temporary, and the problems resume soon after.
Edit 2: If there are people viewing this thread, then do me a favor and help. I have no clue what to do, I've tried so many forums and even samsung's website but nothing ever came from it. PLEASE. Help me out here.
thanks for the help everyone.

Removed inappropriate language. Sorry that no one has had a solution to offer. I don't think it would have helped in this case due to the difficult question at hand, but when adding additional information, you should use reply rather than edit. Edit is better for corrections, but others who have seen your original post will not see that you've added new information.
