    Hi, it appears that the power button on my Galaxy S6 isn't working anymore. I have faulted this with samsung and they have asked me to send it to them for repair. Today, I was going to back up my phone but my battery went flat before I could do this and now I cant get the phone back on!! Some have suggested holding down the volume up button then plugging in the usb lead while connected to a computer, it didn't work. I have also tried the volume down button and the home button at the same time while plugged in via usb, this didn't work either. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can get into recovery mode without using the power button, I really need to get the phone back on, the battery is sealed in. Thanks in advance.

    So I have spoken to Samsung again , they say there is no way to access the phone when the power button isn't working. Is there something I can do on the computer to access the phone remotely? Someone out there must of been in the same position as me!
