    Did a force restart fix it?

    I had the same issue. Power/lock button was not responding. A force restart (power + volume down together until the screen responds) appears to have fixed it.

    Had this happen as well, there was another thread about it this past weekend. I did a force restart and went into safe mode, then regular mode and it fixed it for me. Though I did also experience a corrupted SD card shortly after, not sure if it was related or not. Had to remove sd, reformat and all seems well now.

    My power button stopped working this morning as well. No matter how long I held it down it wouldn't give me the "Power down/Restart Menu". I saw on other forums they just said take it back to store and return it immediately. I only had the phone 2 days. I saw THIS forum and tried the power/volume down button solution, thinking how could that work if the power button isn't working ? I held it for 9 seconds before it restarted and all is like new now ! Thanks for the tip !

    I've had the same thing happen. Force restart was working temporarily. Uninstalled a couple of recently installed apps and everything has gone back to normal.

    No offence Elly58... but what a stupid response to the question ! "My power button is not working or responding", so you type, "Press the power button (which isn't working :| ) and volume down for force restart...

    very unhelpful !

    @ Jazzy, You're jumping the gun there, the power button not working could have numerous reasons. The button itself, the hardware it's attached to, firmware or software.

    If it's software that's impacting it's operation then other functions like "force reset" which is built into firmware, would still work, and would tell you straight away the button is actually functional, and that the problem is software related. As may restarting in safe mode if it works in safe mode.

    If it does not work it would indicate either a firmware issue, or an issue with the button itself or attached components. So attempting a reset isn't entirely stupid, it's just standard troubleshooting, never rule anything out until it's tested.

    Thank you guys for the advice, it really helped and i honestly didnt think it would have. I just held down the power and volume buttons for about 10 sec and it restarted and everything was cool.

    Jazzy, your response is ignorant...no offense. I had the same problem-power button not responding. Tried vol down/power button and it fixed the problem. Try something before you post rude comments maybe...

    Jazzy's answer wasn't rude bro. Its completely sense that he thought that this won't work when the button not even work. you can't be angry on him. But i have this problem too, i found out the fix: hit the back of the phone on area of the button.

    Ok, i had the same issue, looked on many forums and no amount of effort would force restart or turn the phone on, no power cable turned it on so i put it down to broken hardware (the button itself) got some pliers, ripped the button out, there was 3 seperate holes, get 3 pointy objects, stick them in all three holes and viola it turned on, if you want a safe way of ensuring your honor stays alive even when its dead it to set an alarm 4 hours apart, honors have a setting to turn the phone on when the alarm is due. Just make sure u got a charger to hand.

    (Samsung galaxy A5 2016) So my phone got a bit wet and the power button stopped responding after it. I turned it of with the volume down button and on with both volume button but it didn't do much. I repeated the same thing, I held down all the possible buttons while restarting and there was an effect. After second restart the pop up with 3 options to turn off restart or alarm mode started coming up on it's own and the button worked occasionally. I restarted it again and now the button is working perfectly. I should also mention there was lot of blowing into the button and hitting the phone with might have helped.
