Power/Volume Buttons Not Working
The phone does not respond when the power button and/or the volume button are pressed.
Button Flex Is Broken
If the physical button does not click when pressed, then the button flex is broken and needs to be replaced.
Driving Mode Is On
If the power or volume button click when pressed but are unresponsive, the issue is most likely software related. If you are unable to turn the phone on, try plugging it into the wall. If the phone does not turn on, you probably have an issue with your charger, charging port, or battery, not your buttons. If the phone turns on when plugged in, you have a software problem. One common issue is that driving mode is toggled on. To check, click the ‘Message+’ app and select ‘menu.’ Here you can see whether or not driving mode is toggled on.
A third party application is interfering
If driving mode is off but you still believe you have a software problem, you may have an app downloaded on your phone that is the cause. To test this, put your phone in ‘safe mode’ by turning your phone off, then pressing and holding the power button until the ‘Samsung’ screen appears. Next, press and hold the volume button until the phone restarts. If the buttons begin working while in safe mode, an app is the cause. Restart your phone to exit safe mode.
Miscellaneous Software Issues
There are many other software-related reasons why your buttons may not be working. If driving mode is off and you are sure that an app is not causing your issues, check to see if your phone’s software is updated by going to ‘settings,’ then ‘about device,’ then ‘software update.’ If the software has already been updated, there may be some form of data on your phone that is causing the issues. A factory reset can test this but be sure to back up any valuable data on your phone before trying this.
