Unhappy [Q] IS there any alternative way of turning on a google nexus 10

so here is my story... my google nexus 10 got wet, and i dissasembled the whole thing, so it could dry up. when i was assembling it, i accidentally broke the Power & Volume flex cable, which is indeed needed to power up the device... Ive been looking for the part on ebay, amazon.I found it in and but it is out of stock. Ive been looking also in my town for the part, but i cant find it... Im losing hopes, well is there a way to actually power up my device from my laptop ? maybe by plug it in and use some software.. jeeez I want to use my Nexus, i miss it any help will be greatly aprreciated.

Going out on a limb and saying no.

It'd have to be at the kernel level where you have a magnetic trigger to input the screen to wake but not if your device is powered off and unable to be powered on to install the kernel.

Hope you find a power button and try to stay away from areas where your tablet can be dropped in water?
Good luck.
