Does this cover the power button not functioning? The fingerprint but is vibrating but wont turn the phone on?

My power button had been working only intermittently and then almost not at all. The solution was amazingly simple. I wet a Qtip with alcohol and rolled it around the edges of the button, pushing in as much as I could. Each time I did that the button started working better and better. Now it works perfectly. I think between humidity, finger oil and dust, it just got dirty inside.

This alcohol qtip comment helped. Button works again!

I had the same problem with my LG G5.  I was very skeptical about the alcohol qtip idea but was all out of ideas and decided to give it a try.  After rubbing it with the qtip for about 5 seconds the button started to work again.  Unbelievable!  Thanks for the great tip.

Well %#*@. The alcohol and q-tip trick worked! I’m floored. I’ve been double-tapping since two months after I got the phone. I used cleaning alcohol, like that for wounds (70%), and pressed the button in with the saturated q-tip while scrubbing around and on the edge. As the above comments mentioned, repetition resulted in increased success: I used a total of one and a half q-tips, and applied alcohol about 3 or 4 times. No disassembly required.
