How can I fix a stuck power button?

My power button is stuck pressed down and the phone continuously turns on and off until the battery is dead. I have no personal workshop or anything, and I don’t know about taking to the phone store to get it wiped, since I haven’t fully backed everything up. Hopefully there’s a way I could possibly pull it back out without much disassembly.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I'm able to pull out the power button using an adhesive. A while after this was posted I did in fact take it to a repair shop, but unfortunately they pretty much ruined my backing. So I just have a new question to ask; How can I disable my power button? I need it disabled to prevent it from getting stuck in and powering the phone on and off. I can use the phone 100% fine without the power button too, so no need to worry there. Please do not just answer a google search, as that is not very helpful to my question.

I think you need to get it running well enough to get the data off it. Google “https://www.google.com/search?client=saf... and maybe you can get it apart enough to get at the power switch.


If not, this should be pretty straightforward for a skilled repair facility, though it will cost you something.

This kind of answers should be banned for life. I'm referring to moec, not Cyonix. Everyone can google, but only few can refrain from speaking when they have nothing to say.

Andy, if the power button is stuck, a proper repair requires disassembly and cleaning/switch-replacement. While moec's explanation (Googling/Searching for a URL) is not grammatically-correct, he provided a link to a Youtube video, which provides guideance for disassembly of the device. And provided a valid alternative of taking it to a repair shop. I think that's helpful advice. Your comment, however, is not helpful.

Also, while everyone CAN Google, few do it effectively.
