    I currently have an Acer Iconia A500 Tablet with a broken power button. In order to turn on the tablet I would just plug or unplug the power cord and the lock screen would appear. Unfortunately I forgot to leave it plugged in and found that the battery died . So is there any way to turn it on with a broken power button?

    I have a data cable that I can connect to my pc, have the acer drivers installed and also have android sdk downloaded so I was wondering if there was any way to use that to control the tablet.

    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, I think you're out of luck. It might not cost that much to take it to a shop to repair or replace the power button.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I will try a local repair shop and see if they can fix it.
