    Hi there,

    Looking for some help with my Samsung A5.
    The power button has become suddenly unresponsive. Yesterday it seemed a bit finicky, but today it has completely stopped responding and I cannot turn my phone on. Both the screen and battery are working, as confirmed by plugging it in to charge via USB cable, but no matter what I try (short tap, long press) I cannot get the power button to work. All suggestions I've seen for soft resets require using the power button that won't respond.

    Any suggestions for how I might be able to turn it on without the power button?
    The battery is not removable on this model.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Welcome to Android Central! Is there some reason you just need to get it on this one time, or are you looking for some solution to power the phone on every time without a working Power button? I think it'd probably be best to bring the phone to a repair shop and get the Power button replaced.
