Default How to power on a phone with a broken power button?

My LG G2's power button and volume rockers appear to have stopped working. My phone is off and USB debugging is off. Is there any way I can power my phone on? Thanks!

Install some imaginary buttons from Google Play. Maybe it will help

The problem is that my phone is off! And I can't turn it on without using the power button it seems.

Is it the button itself that is broken or the functionality of the electronics? I once had to replace the physical button after the guts had fallen out of it. Got to the last step of rooting my phone, went to press that rocker button and ...nothing. I always used the virtual, on screen button for photos, so I never even realized that it was dead. They can usually find them somewhere online

I think it is the electronics because at one point my power button/volume buttons were randomly getting pressed without my input. But, I really don't know for sure.

That's out of my realm of knowledge then, might be time for a new ride... Sorry and good luck
