How to turn on your Android phone with a broken power button?
Smartphones, with time an age, can run into problems all the time. Hanging displays, cracked screens, and most detrimentally, broken power buttons.
If your Android phone has a broken or damaged power button, you will eventually have to get it repaired. However, you can turn on your phone even with a broken power button, temporarily.
- Stimulate the key with another object: If your button itself is missing, you can use anything pointed and small to stimulate the key that turns your phone on. Try pushing a toothpick, safety pin, hair pin, or other similar tiny objects into the slot where your button should have been. This might help you turn your phone on for emergencies, until you can get it repaired.
- Connect it to a computer: Use a USB cord to connect your phone to your PC or laptop. Ensure it has enough charge to turn on, otherwise let it charge for a bit. This method may not work for all phones, but it’s worth a try, as some phones do light up when connected to an external device.
- Use other keys: Turning on your phone is possible if you press the volume and home buttons simultaneously. However, most phones don’t have a physical home button anymore.
If this is the case with our phone, you might be able to just use the volume buttons to start your phone. Press down your volume buttons, while connecting your phone to your PC with a USB cord. Ensure your phone is charged, and you continue pressing it when it’s connected, until the boot menu shows up. Then, you can use the volume buttons to navigate through this and press “Start”, after which your phone will turn on.
