The power button is the button in which you press in order to do certain things like opening your phone, locking your phone, turning your phone off, or to do commands such as going to flash and to safe mode. There will come a time when that power button of yours will become brittle and you will notice that it is just pressed down. One of the effects of having this issue is the ‘boot loop’ in which your phone will boot and boot all over again without it turning on. So how can you answer this issue? Can you yourself fix the issue? Here are some ways in order for you to see what or how your power button is not working as it always was.
