Google Nexus 5 :: Why Doesn't Screen Turn On When Hit Power Button

Dec 31, 2014

Hitting the power button does not turn the display on. Actually nothing turns the display on. This began happening occasionally, for a few seconds at a time. Then it became a few minutes at a time. Now it is permanent.

What's truly odd is that the phone seems to be completely working otherwise. It rings, alarms go off, indicator lights flash. It connects to my car over bluetooth and if I plug in headphones and hit the play headphones' action button, music starts. If I hold the power button down, every 5s I get a little haptic feedback, and it appears to reboot if I hold power and volume up (or down, I can't recall), so I know the buttons are working.

I even have a suspicion that touchscreen digitizer is working because I think I've dismissed a few notifications by double-tapping (I'm on Lollipop). Also, I swear I have seen very fleeting, very dim views of the unlock screen a few times.

I should also add that I took advantage of Google's recent replacement policy lenience - this is a refurb I've had for a month or two.

I'm contemplating replacing the screen/digitizer on the theory that this is a broken screen. It feels like the backlight is broken. But I'd rather not spend the $$$ and time if the problem is deeper than that.

Google Nexus 6 :: Screen Does Not Turn On - Need To Hit Power Button

Feb 15, 2015

A lot of times when I pick up my N6 the screen does not turn on so I'm forced to hit the power button. What is the "trick" to get this to work? What do you normally do to turn on your screen besides hitting the power button? Or is that my only option...

Google Nexus 6 :: Screen Doesn't Turn On For Incoming Calls

Mar 19, 2015

When my phone rings, the screen doesn't turn on. It's like the screen is off. It's vibrating, ringing, but I can't see who is calling. If I hit the lock/power button then I get the lock screen, I can unlock the phone and answer. This has been happening for the past week or so.

May 17, 2014

when my phone is asleep and I get incoming notifications whether they be texts, emails, notifications, etc my screen does not turn on briefly to alert me, only the notification light blinks. Is this normal or is there a setting on my phone that is not enabled correctly?

Google Nexus 5 :: Power Button Stuck - Can Only Get To Fastboot

Dec 25, 2015

My N5 has a hardware fault where the phone thinks the power button is permanently pressed, so as soon as you try and boot it, it turns off again.

I am able to get to fastboot, by holding down the volume down button and power. But from there, I cannot boot to recovery or normal system boot.

I have been unable to fix this, and I really want to get some of my app data off. Is there a way of extracting a backup somehow from fastboot? I'm guessing no, as you can't access via adb through fastboot?

Google Nexus 5 :: How To Disable Power Button Completely

Nov 27, 2015

Yesterday my power button died, but I was able to turn on my N5 somehow. after, I've enabled the double tap to sleep on the statusbar and on the lockscreen and volume buttons now wake the device, but I wasn't able to remap the power button and if I accidentaly press it, I don't know what will happen.

So, there's any method to completely disable the power button? I've tried with gravity box but there isn't any option to do this. How to disable the power button from the .kl files in system/usr/keylaout? And then, can I use the volume buttons to turn on the device when it's off or I have to keep it on forever?

Google Nexus 5 :: Volume Down And Power Button Sometimes Do Not Work

Aug 4, 2015

Yesterday the volume down button and power button started not working. This has happened before and usually if I turn it off and on again the problem is fixed. That's not working this time. The power button works about 2/3rds of the time and the down volume button won't work at all, it sometimes even lowers the volume by itself. Because of this problem, whenever I turn the phone off and on again it brings me to the fastboot page and puts my phone on safemode, which I can't get out of. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, doing a factory data reset, and using recovery mode.

Huawei Nexus 6P :: Turn Off Without Using The Power Button

Nov 6, 2015

So, the 6P is a sodding big phone and I have fairly small hands.

Switching on to an unlocked state using the fingerprint reader is easy. Switching off requires the power button, which means wrestling the damn thing into a position where I can press the button.

I've looked at a few apps that switch off the screen with a shake or gesture, but these always result in a pattern request to unlock fully when turning back on with the fingerprint reader. Looking at this thread, it seems the Nova Launcher double-tap off function results in the same secondary security challenge when switching back on.

I assume this is because the third-party double-tap/shake/gesture event is only turning the screen off, not actually locking the device as the power button would.

Google Nexus 5 :: Disabled Power Button But It Reboots Phone

Dec 15, 2015

I have a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.4 and CyanogenMod 11. Like always, it had been working really find untill today, when it started to reboot and entered in a loop. I found out that it was because the power button was broken and with the lightest touch, it would activate. Searching through the Internet I found out that many people happen to have this problem. I tried to disable the power button editing a file that is found under /system/usr/keylayout/qpnp_pon.kl, where I had to simply comment the line where the power button was.

Now, if I click the power button it doesn't happen anything, like I was expecting, but after 30 seconds of clicking it, it shuts down and it reboots like if it was an internal error or someting similar that caused that reboot.Is it possible that disabling it the way I did could cause any type of problem that made it reboot after touching it?

I know it's an internal problem or something like this because when I touch it, it doesn't lock the screen or show the power menu, so the button itself is kind of "disabled", but it keeps causing this problem.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Not Waking After Pressing Power / Lock Button

Nov 4, 2015

I have problem with waking the phone with power/lock button. Every few hours (for my usage once a day) the phone doesn't wake after locking. I have to press and hold power/lock button for a few seconds to manualy restart it. I know that N5 has notorious problems with power/lock button but as far as I know its problem with phone not going to sleep. I don't have problem with that.

I noticed this after an update to M. I am on XtraSmooth 29.10 build with RacerKernel 28.10. DT2W dissabled. Also i have the usual problem of turning screen on after calls. For me the phone sometimes doesn't turn on until the other person ends the call. Do I need to replace the power/lock button?

Xperia X8 :: Screen Doesn't Lock When Press Power Off Button

Sep 1, 2012

I'm currently facing this problem and it's really annoying. I never update my phone or whatever because it will slow it down.

My phone went out of battery and it turned off. So i plug the charger in and waited for it to restart. After restarting it, I realize there are several settings that ran away IE: My ringtone preferences and keyboard preferences. So far, I've already readjust it, But ever since the phone restarted like that, I can no longer lock my screen, not even if it times out itself after 15 seconds. and when i press and hold the power off button, instead of showing the menu for options like "Silent phone"/Flight mode"/"Shut down" it only shows power off. What can i do to get the original settings back ?

Motorola Droid Razr :: Using The Power Button To Turn The Screen On?

Jun 21, 2012

Has anyone tried this app? It uses the proximity sensor to turn the screen on. From what I have read, the "lite" version was designed for one certain phone but the pro version ($1.28) is supposed to work on all phones. There are not a lot of reviews as it is a relatively new app but almost all are positive. It is in the Google Play Store under Smart Screen On Pro. Curious to know if it actually works as they say it does. I really dislike using the power button to turn the screen on. I guess I was so used to the home button on the DX turning it on. if anyone has tried it, would like to hear yeas or nays on how it works.

Google Nexus 5 :: Screen Doesn't Function - How To Get Pictures Off Of Device

Jan 16, 2016

My nexus 5 is having screen issues and the screen basically doesn't function due to what I can only assume is a bad connection on the mainboard ( if I press in the right area with the back cover off the screen will flicker and work a tiny bit if I reboot the phone.) My issue is I still have tons of pictures that are very dear to me on the device and need to get them off of it.

When I connect it to my pc (windows 7) it connects and shows up as a nexus 5 device but nothing will appear in the folder. Im fairly certain I have the correct drivers installed as well. So how can I get it to connect properly with having basically no access to the screen?
