Power Button Problems
If you are having trouble turning your phone on and off, it could be one of many problems. While it could be a battery issue, it could also be a broken power button. Cell buttons can take a beating through everyday wear and tear. If the phone is dropped, internal components of the power button can be knocked loose or broken causing the connections to be missed. There are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot the problem before seeking repair.
Troubleshooting Power Button Problems
First, you’ll want to make sure your battery is not dead. Charge your phone overnight and try the power the power button again. If the phone still won’t turn on, then it could be the power button. There are do-it-yourself kits available for replacing the power button. However, you will have to work with very small and delicate pieces of your phone, and you run the risk of causing further damage. The other problem is that you could replace the power button only to find out that the issue was really a faulty battery. A professional diagnosis and repair can minimize the risk.
If you need to use your phone or retrieve data from it before having it repaired, you might be able to power it on by removing the battery and plugging it into the charger. After about five minutes, the phone may power on by itself. This allows you to get any immediate information that you need.
