    Power button fails to switch off the iPhone 5

    In my iPhone 5, power button fails to switch off the phone. It fails to switch off after hard pressing it. Why is it so happening? Please share a solution. It is a second hand phone and hence, I cannot get the servicing done for free from the company.

    Dear iPhone user as your power button does not work then you can not switch off your phone, in deed it is a greatproblem to eradicate this problem you are to to change the bitton or to repair it immediately.Then you need to contach with mobile seller.Ask the problem in detail by telephone and you can tell him about the warranty period if it is active eg did not expire the time.

    I think he will entertain you to repair the iPad freely or with a minimum charge if the warranty period expire.

    The service center operator will charge you for the replacement of the button the charge will approx. 50 to 100 Rs ...
    so don't worry..
    go to the service center and got your problem solved ...

    Hopes it will help you ...

    This problem is associated with hardware drawback.

    So you need to contact the closest service center. Visit as early as possible as your warranty may expire.

    To do free servicing you should have cash memo/and warranty.


    If warranty period is over then you need to pay some money.

    It may happen that your whole motherboard may require to change.
