Power button harder to press

Being the only physical button for power, lock and screenshots the button has become more unresponsive to gentle presses and now requires a great pressure to activate it. Is there any way to fix it before it's too late?

Hi Damien,

It could either be the (visible) button that needs to be replaced or the power button switch (small circuit board). Both can be ordered, e.g. on ebay (button and switch).

However, before buying anything, I would check which part is actually needed.

To check the switch: Remove the switch/circuit board of the power button and lay it on the table (the contact or "eye" on top). Take a pencil and use the side of the eraser, slightly pushing on the contact several times. You need to hear a "click" or at least "feel" the "click" to be sure that the switch is still ok. If it is still ok, I would inspect the power button. Your issue seems to point to a worn out piece, either the switch or the button.

Use this guide for replacing the power button, and this guide to get access to the power switch (see last step).

Hi Hitesh, I recommend that you follow the two guides mentioned above. Are you able to order the replacement parts from India? The repair does not seem to be very difficult.

Protect your power button by Gravity Screen app. I'm not affiliated with the developer, just bought it recently and the app is really cool
