My Gmini power button will not work on rom or recovery, but works to turn on.

this happened after catching a virus, but I already did wip at all, and not resolved.

Anyone know a way to fix or is hopeless

Arrow Repair
Give it to a repair shop (Where they repair your phone). This is the only way as you have tried all methods. Yet it costs some Rupees

Be careful..it might brick your phone completely as the power button is linked to motherboard. This has happened to my friend's mini, when he gave it in so called samsung service center....even they failed to repair power button and bricked his phone...they gave him a dead phone..

This is not the right section to post your questions/help....you should post this kind of questions in q/a section.

Dude, virus cannot affect your hardware. But still if you think then make a full.format
Go to cwm - mount - format system etc
P.S this will format your OS too u then need immediatly flash a rom.
Or
Open your galaxy mini
Clean power button
Re close it
It's simple YouTube it.

There's no such thing as virus can affects the power button.

Really, Android malware isn't exact thing as Window's malware. Android's virus needs permission to make your power button not working.

This is a hardware problem, I believe. Try to send it to SSC.
