Power on from the android system WITHOUT button?!?

2020-11-12, 18:06 PM
Hey all, Does ANYONE know if there is a way to initiate a restart/power on from the android system, without using the button..?!? I have a Moto Z Force first gen running Andr. 8.0, which recently I had a new battery put in. It was fine for a couple weeks, but then all three of my buttons went dead. I think the guy might have had to unplug the buttons and it was OK until I dropped it (just lightly...!) Anyway, its not a big deal, I can adjust sound from the cont. panel, and thank god I have my battery life back. But I am freaked out that if I shut it down I wont have any way to restart! It'll be a brick! Any ideas would be helpful. thanks, Moto Z Force (XT 1650-2)

Hi Mr.T,

 

Thanks for writing to us. If the phone does is not yet powered on, I think its not possible to turn it on without the Power button. 

 

Best regards,
Zeke

Hi Zeke, Thanks so much for your reply; No, the phone is on, and I can relatively easily maintain it on, as its been a great phone and never crashes. With the new battery, it is entirely possible to keep it charged. While I have your helpful attention, Can you think of any reason why the buttons would all stop working? A system glitch of some sort? Also, my question was really if there was a way to initiate a restart somehow from settings, since the phone is on and working fine... Thanks again for your input. C

Hi Mr.T,

 

If the buttons stopped working on a phone, this is most likely hardware problem. In case this happens we suggest having the device sent to a service center for repair. 

 

Best regards,
