    If the device is off, and power button is broken, there is nothing you can aside from sending for repair or a replacement. If it's somewhat working, then you can remap the power button if you are rooted.

    My power button became unresponsive on my HTC One Max and I didn't know if it was software related or physically defective. Turns out it was neither. I was tempted to take the phone apart to determine the problem, because the HTC One Max is a "BADASS!" phone. Why they stopped making it, I will never know.

    The Issue: There must be some random dirt that clogs miniature contacts on the inside of the power button. Continuous clicking with a lot of pressure doesn't turn the phone on.

    My Concern: I wasn't about to take the phone apart and trying to wash or break up the dirt with a solution when the battery cannot be removed worried me.

    The Fix: I said screw it and poured small amounts of alcohol into the power button while pressing it.

    The Conclusion: Now it turns on so easy and I don't have to replace my phone. Very cool. I wish I knew to do this before I beat the crap out of it in frustration. Do the opposite of me, be gentle.

    **Try at your own risk, I don't normally recommend pouring alcohol into a device that has power.

    It is pretty easy to solve by yourself. If you still have it. There are 4 pins and the only thing you need to do to wake it up is connecting the power button pin to the common pin. It's still your own risk but I would say it is very low.
