How to Restart the Phone Without Power Button

You need to figure out a few things before performing any task, like is your device shut down or not. If your device is turned on or off, this tutorial will help you.

Let’s dive into the post

1. Smartphone’s battery life

2. The Scheduled to get things done

If you are wondering how to restart your smartphone when it is turned on, and your power button is not working, this will help you.

What do you need to do to set a schedule to turn on-off your phone?

What is? Schedule Power On/Off?

Scheduling means setting a particular time for a device to turn on automatically. Use the Schedule power on/off feature to power your device on and off at set times to save battery and prevent interruptions while resting.

Here is how to set a schedule to turn on or off your device at a particular time. 

  • Open your mobile settings
  • And find automatic on and off for schedule on-off
  • Now add both the timers to turn on your device and to turn off your device.
  • And save the settings, and done.

And here is a thing you must remember before setting an automatic turn-on and off timer for your smartphone.

When you are setting it to turn off the timer, then also you need to set it on timer because the moment when your power button is not working, and you need to restart your smartphone, then you must set power on the timer; otherwise, your phone won’t continue automatically until your power button starts working, so that’s why I set to pull off timer and also with that said if power-on time, that works well.

3. Using a Third-party app

To restart your phone without the power button, you can use any third-party app downloaded from Google Play Store but wait before going to the play store. You must understand that thousands of fake apps on the site won’t work.

When something goes wrong, and you can’t fix it, ask for help because, ultimately, your motive is to fix things, and to fix it, you need to find a person who can help you with your current device problem.

Why is the power button not working on my smartphone?
