    I have an s8+ with a non working power button. Today I noticed my phone on maintenence boot mode. Volume buttons don't move the cursor and bixby button doesn't enter selection. Tried holding down volume and power button and the screen went black and then right back to maintenence boot mode.
    Not sure what is up with power button which stopped working a few months ago. This is a prior separate issue. When my phone went dead last month i was able to play with power button and it came back on.
    Right now i just want out of maintenence mode.

    What do you mean maintenance mode?
    Are you in recovery?

    It says maintenence boot mode at the top. There are 4 options - normal boot, fac reset, safe mode, per down. It is on the mormal boot option. I don't know how i got on this mode.

    The volume button is supposed to let me scroll thru the options and bixby button to select. Neither one does anything
