Sony Xperia Z1 compact can't turn on.

Hi guys,

 

I will make it really simple. I need a way to start my phone without the power button and without connecting it to a PC. 1. My power button is broken, not software, the whole button just doesn't work. 2. If I connect to PC it doesn't charge and my PC says the device is not recoqnized. I for a fact know it works. I used to just press the  button REALLY REALLY hard. But the broken is totally broken now.

I'm afraid that you will need the power button to turn on the device. You have 2 options:

 

1 contact your Local Support 

 

or

 

2 DIY, iFixit or youtube videos are the way to go

I already looked to youtube and all. You know any Diy methods? This phone is not needed. I can break it, doesn't really matter. Wanted to use it as a surveleance cam.
