    Can I turn on Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone without power button?

    Since yesterday, the power button on my Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone is not working properly. I am having trouble in tuning on the device due to that. Is it possible to power up the device without power button?

    Hello,

    As far as i know the power button can only turn on your device. If its not working properly you need to have it checked out at your nearest Service center.
    If its faulty they will certainly repair it.
    Other than that their is no option as this is a hardware issue.
    This must be a new phone so you must be having warranty.
    Else you can show it in any local mobile shop and ask them to repair it if possible. if they charge more they visit a service center.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    In order to turn ON the phone without using the power button in not possible, but there is a work around that you can try in order to turn ON the phone. In order to turn ON the phone you have to connect the phone to a Charger or USB cable which is powered without the battery in the phone as soon as u connect the charger insert the battery and this might help in turning on the phone, you can also try the reverse process as to insert the battery and then immediately connect the data cable or charge this might also help in Turning ON the phone and there by making the to get Powered ON, this is just a work around and it may or may not work.
    Hope this Helps.

    Have same problem. 1 If I plug it in while power is on the screen will come on. 2. If power is off I am able to turn it on by briefly removing battery. If no charger handy and phone is on but no screen method 2 will work but you have to wait for reboot. Hope this works for you.
