    Hello!
    I had my LG g3 for a year and a half now, worked pretty good until now.
    Lately, I've encountered a problem, both my power button and my vol down button don't work properly.
    When I turn on the screen, the power button works, but when I try to turn off it doesn't.
    Vol down button also doesn't work when the phone is on.
    I solved it by adding an app that turns of the screen and I can live without the vol down button, the real problem is when I reboot the phone (or power on after it been turned off), it always turns on safe mode, which I can't get out off. I left my phone off for a couple of days and then it turned on fine, but after a few hours the buttons stopped working again and the safe mode problem returned.
    I sent it to a lab and they said they fixed it but the problem is back again.

    So, 2 questions:
    1. Because the power on button do work when the screen is off, I think maybe it is now a hardware problem but maybe a software? or a combination? someone solved it before without replacing parts?

    2. Is there a way to disable the save mode option? or just replace the vol down button with the vol up button for this matter? just to make sure that when I reboot my phone I don't get stuck on safe mode.. Preferably with out rooting my phone.

    Thank you!

    No one?
    Even a way just to disable the vol_down key will be amazing, the screen keeps getting on on random times and go straight to the camera...
