Dell inspiron power button stuck

Jump to solution

It seems my power button is stuck on the low position (when I press I dont feel it click). Yet the fan is working so tge lap top is not off. I tried wiggling the button a little, it moves a little but from side to side in its socket, but not up or down. What can I do??

It would help to know exactly what model you have (Inspiron 3521, N5110, etc.) so we can recommend the proper replacement part.

Can't it be repaired/unstuck rather than replaced? How can i know the button's mechanism is truely broken?

You can try that, but it's likely the microswitch on the button board is faulty and that part will need to be replaced.
