    The Power button on my Xperia Ray is broken..i used to power it on by pressing with a pen but now dat doesnt work either!! there's no way to turn on my phone now..

    i read of a few apps that i can use to remap the power buttons, i want to do that, but i cant until i turn it on!!
    any other way i can turn it on without d button?

    there are a very few repair centres here in my area, so repairing is not really an option at the moment.

    Unfortunately, there is no other way to turn the device on other then what you have stated.

    In reality you best option is a repair agent to have the handset repaired.

    Hi - not sure whether you got anywhere with this but I have the same problem however I have managed to get my phone booted by reflashing it back to Gingerbread however now I hope it doesn't run out of battery as the power button still doesnt work!

    Does anyone know if it is possible to remap the button to be something else to get around this?

    Thanks
