    hello,

    hard reset your phone and reboot it once.
    if the error is still present then reinstall your firmware to check whether it was a software error or not.

    if nothing works,then there is a high possibility that it is an hardware error.
    take your phone to an authorized service center

    Hi,
    The power button failing is an Hardware issue so that can be fixed only by taking the ViewPad to an authorized service center of Viewsonic and there is nothing that can be done since it is an hardware issue. But if the power button is working for locking the screen and the only problem that is caused is such that the phone is not able to be turned OFF then try doing an Factory Reset this will help you regain the functionality of the device. The Factory Reset can be performed by opening the application drawer and then select the "Settings" icon. In the settings menu under privacy option you will be able to Data Reset the phone.
    Hope this Helps.
