So I dropped my phone and broke the power button. I'm not sure if it's because my laptop is slow but I tried to turn it on by holding the volume down button plugging it into my laptop via USB and nothing...it's just black screen. I have an LED charger cord that shows me it is fully charged. Could it be the phone or my dinosaur slow laptop. I used to be able to use my pocket knife on the edge of the power button but that's not working anymore
If you dropped it any number of things could be wrong. Not just the power button. The only way to know is to have it looked at by a tech.
So I tried the recovery mode forum, I just need to power it on. I have it on my finger scanner so I don't usually need the power button. Unfortunately with the zte max pro there is no way to power on your phone without the power button
