    Hi, I have the HTC ONE M8 and the power button is broken/jammed. It's very sensitive and keeps locking its self, taking screenshots and sending me to the option to restart/power off my phone. This is really annoying. Is there a way I can Disable the button and maybe use one of the volume buttons to lock/unlock? Any advice appreciated. Would prefer not to mess with going to the store. Alternatively, If you know how I could fix the lock myself, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Take the phone to a repair shop. The switch can't be disabled and needs to be replaced.

    Even if I thought it wise to do so, I could not help you fix the hardware unless I was able to look at it and see just what was wrong. And, as I said, I'm not about to tell someone to do something to physically fix a problem who obviously does not have a technical background.

    If it is still under warranty, use the warranty to get it repaired. Otherwise, you'll have to pay to have it fixed.

    Any "monkeying" with it might make the problem worse - such as causing the switch to close permanently.

    Look to a technician to repair the phone.
