Power Button Stopped Working

Out of the blue my power button stopped working. Thought it might be a bug with the latest 15.2 so I did a reset and the button still isn't working. I had to turn off the setting where the keyboard automatically kicks in after five minutes because I couldn't use the device. I tried setting a keybind to the power button "double press on/off" and I set it to shutdown. But that didn't work either.

Might have to restore the configuration which should put it back to factory specs. Correct?

Anyone have a problem similar to this with any suggestions. I really don't want to send my PB360 back to be fixed or replaced. I don't think I could take it, I read way to much.

Help!

Ok actually looks like there is a short in the button. Booooo!!!

If I press at the very right side of the button with my finger nail then the button works. But if I press with my finger it doesn't. If I press the middle with my finger or nail, nothing. If I press the left side of the button with my finger or nail, nothing.

Man I am bummed. Now I have to figure out how to return it to be repaired/replaced. And I will be without my reader for probably a week or two. God forbid three weeks. I am going to go make a myself a drink.

Did you already tried a hardware-reset?

Try to power it on.
Press the Center and the lower Wing button.
Follow the advice.
Wait about 20mins.

If its a real hardware damage, this should be fixed with guarantee (as long you still have )

I am doing the hardware reset now. I thought it was the Center and Lower (least thats what I did) and it popped up what seems to be reset text. Told me to wait 10 min.

Well I think that did the trick. Power button seems normal and responsive. I am hoping it stays that way. I really don't want to send my ereader back. Would be a rough 2/3 weeks.

Anyway here is to hoping and praying to the book gods that this is fixed.

I hope so! I figured it was a loose spring or something under the power button from your first description about it working if you pushed it in a different place.

Good luck and hopefully it's fixed!
