As with many other devices, Smartphones can also be malfunctioned. You’ll freak out when the power button or home button stops working because both are very crucial for operation. Fortunately, there are solutions provided by experts for nearly all problems Android users commonly face. All you have to do is use the Google search to find those solutions. Here’s how to fix OUKITEL power button not working.
1. Fill the battery
The power button not working probably has to do with the remaining battery although this is not always the case. Just plug the charger into the phone and wait until the battery icon appears on the screen. If you see the percentage already, don’t rush to turn on the phone. Wait until it reaches half capacity, and then you can power it on.
2. Use Android Debug Bridge
This may also solve the problem. It’s known as ADB as well. To do it, you would need two things, the first one is android studio and the second one is SDK tool. And then, head into the location where you start the ADB. Connect your device, once the command window shows up, insert the command ‘ADB devices’. You will get an id and a name afterwards. Your device will be restarted after you give the command ‘ADB reboot’.
3. Install a third-party app
While the power button is essential, many of us don’t realize its importance until our phone runs out of battery and we have to turn it on in order to use it. Well, the physical button is surely the first thing you’d be focused on, but it’s not the only way to turn on an Android device. Even it doesn’t work, you can use a third-party app to do the job. There are many apps with this purpose on the Play Store. You can type in ‘power button to volume button’ or something along the line. This app basically converts the home button into the power button. If we normally have to long press the power button to power on, with this installed you can use the volume button, instead.
That’s how to fix OUKITEL power button not working.
