Broken Power Button on Samsung Google Nexus S – How to Live With It
This video shows you how to live with a broken or faulty power button on your Samsung Nexus S phone. To wake your phone, go under system settings, then security, and disable your screen lock (select “none”). Then you can wake up your Nexus S using the volume rocker. To power off the phone (if you ever do this), pry off the back cover using your thumbnail and remove the battery. To boot up the phone, first remove the battery, then plug in your charger, then insert the battery. The phone will turn itself on without needing to use the power button. These solutions should extend the life of your phone until such time as you are able to upgrade to a better one.

  1. So this was happening to my phone for a week or two where the power button was being dodgy but still kind of working, then my phone was at like 2% battery and the power button completely stopped working, now I can’t get it to turn on or anything. If I leave it plugged in for a few hours will it still charge if it’s turned off?

  2. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love you so much for this. I was thinking of the most stupid ways to turn my phone.

  3. Thankyou so much! At first I thought this problem was only happening to me, oh how I was wrong! Appreciate the help 🙂

  4. How to turn it on ?
    I took it to a repair shop, they removed the battery to check…now how do I turn it on ?

  5. wow dude thank you so much. such an easy fix. but it never occurred to me. just “fixed” my girlfriends phone.

    your the best. thanks again

  6. This is by far the worst phone I’ve ever had haha. It’s extremely slow, power button useless, and it now is unable to charge. I still have another 3 months till my upgrade but when I do, I will destroy this phone every way imaginable. Like office space.

  7. I know you posted this 4 months ago, but if it is at all any help, my phone can still charge and I’m not sure if this is just my phone but if I take the battery out and then put it back in, it turns on 😛 That’s what I did to turn on my screen before this video xD But of course it was annoying because I had to wait through the startup to answer a text T.T

  8. Lol yeah I’ve had the power button fail on me twice now and Sprint won’t fix it unless I pay $150… I’d have to agree with you sir 😛

  9. and if you want to lock your phone with the first trick (to avoid accident call or something like that from accident touch) you can try apps like fix broken power button (you unlock your phone using the back button)

  10. Does anyone know why it is that the Nexus S lock button breaks to begin with. I’ve been looking around on the internet and it seems to be a recursive problem.
