    So basically my Galaxy Ace's power button decided to break down on me, and now I can't power the phone on. I bought this phone 14 months ago in Hong Kong so the warranty has already ended, even if it didn't, I wouldn't be able to spend $1000 for an airplane ticket. Unfortunately, my phone ran out of battery, and after I charged it back to full, it's just stuck at the battery percentage screen. I need a way to turn on the phone without using the power button (I have access to wall outlet, PC, USB cable all the time).

    TL;DR Is there any way to turn on the phone (from power off, NOT sleep) without using the power button?

    Thanks!

    try going to recovery.
    attach the phone to the charger but don't turn it on yet, now keep the main menu button pressed and then switch on your charger.
    i am only guessing this, not sure if it'll work or not.

    if u do get into recovery, just hit the reboot system option and ur done!
    gud luck :)

    Yessss it worked exactly as you described!! Thank you so much ayush29k!!
    I surprised I didn't find this method from a 5-hour google search.
    I can enable debug mode just in case anything happens now!
    Thanks again! You're the best!

    well the actual way to enter recovery is by pressing power button + home key button, we just used the charger instead of the power button :p
