    Power button Failure..PLEASE HELP!!


    I have been using the Samsung Galaxy S2 for a while now. I have had no troubles with the phone untill a couple of days ago, the power button stopped working all of a sudden. I havent rooted the phone nor have i dropped it. Today, i took out the battery to clean the phone for dust.....
    I havent been able to switch it back on since then.... Is there ANY way, i can restart my phone without using the power button???? or even go into download or recovery mode without using the power button. I have even tried connecting it to the computer, the phone doesnt get detected, it just charges. The battery is perfectly fine and i even tried with a new battery.

    I am at my wit's end as i have some seriously important data on the phone's memory that i need for my work ASAP....would really really really appreictate if somebody could help me out here.

    Re: Power button Failure..PLEASE HELP!!

    It sounds like an actual hardware issue. Is the phone under warranty? The only way I know to fix something like that would be to take it apart or bring it to a phone repair shop.
