How to Turn On Samsung A12 without the Power Button?

The steps below are written to help you turn on any Samsung smartphone including the A12 series without using the power button.

Hold on: Before we get to the steps make sure to checklist the following:

  • That the phone can turn on or have been turned on prior to this moment,
  • The battery has been charged to a minimum of 50%, and 
  • That the phone apart from a broken power button is not faulty in any way.

Step 1# Use the two volume buttons and a charger

The first step to turning on your Samsung A12 smartphone without using the power button is to use the volume keys; how?

Simply, use your left hand to press and hold on the up and down volume keys together at once.

While still holding on to the volume keys, connect your phone to a power outlet with the charger, wait for a few seconds for a bluish screen to appear, and remove your fingers from both volume keys.

Step 2# Press the volume down key

After removing your fingers from the volume keys and with the charger still plugged in, simply press the volume down key once and your Samsung A12 smartphone will proceed to turn on.

In this second be very careful not to press the wrong key (the volume up key in this case) as you may end up causing more issues for your smartphone than it already has.
