Can the power button be fixed?

After 2 years of usage my laptop was powering randomly and after 1 month of this the power button got stuck.

My laptop is a Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN upgraded with an ssd after 1 year after i bought it.

At the moment i’m using the recovery/service button on the side of the laptop.

I can provide aditional information if needed.

@strikerrosv the power button is soldered to the motherboard.

 So, the trouble here would be to find a replacement. Of course, you would also need to know how to solder and have the tools for it. Can it be done? Yes, but it will require the complete disassembly, sourcing a replacement power button and then some soldering.

The button itself is not broken, is just that it got stuck and is not acting anymore. I want to know if I have to get the laptop to a service or if I can fix it myself, as It has no prior damage to it. I had a phone with the same problem, the power button was stuck, acting on it's own and it wasn't broken. All I had to do was to clean it and it was like new(the service said it was the motherboard and they wanted to charge me 200 dollars for it, the phone was worth 250 new) I had done it myself and even resoldered the jack myself (it was poorly soldered on the MB) after 2 years of malfunctioning.


Thanks for the information though!


@strikerrosv the issue here is that "it got stuck and is not acting anymore" most likely means it's broken. Best of luck to you.
