Hi,

I got trouble with my nexus 4 power button and the phone is turned off right now.

Is there anyway to turn it on without pressing the power button??

there are couple of options assuming you are rooted and with custom ROM

1. With help of volume wake up - with almost all custom roms
2. Double tap/swipe to wake up - There is app and few kernel supports that
3. if you using flip phone cover - use some app using proximity sensor

He is asking about turning phone on, not waking it up.

Hi. I have a solution for you. Connect your nexus to your PC with the data cable and hold down the volume down button as you plug it in. This will get you into the bootloader. Next get the fastboot drivers for your phone and open a command prompt where the drivers are located. If you are running windows, navigate windows explorer to where the fastboot file is located and hold shift + right click. Run the following commands:

fastboot devices

Verify that you see a device listed so you know that your phone has been detected. If successful, run this command:

fastboot reboot

This should get your phone to restart itself and successfully boot. I hope that helps. Cheers.
