No,there is now way you can turn the phone without power button.

This is hardware related.
If you take a look at the inside of the power button, there are 2 points making contact when you press the button.
If you press it, the software will recognize this and the screen will turn off.
If you press it long enough you'll get the "Do you want to turn off your device" message.
But, if water gets underneath the button, the 2 points may be making contact, because water/alcohol conducts.
if the button is very weak. Due to this, it may not properly work if you have used it for a long time.

Just open the HTC hero and clean the contacts and try again.If not working water may be poured on it.Check for the water marks on the boards.Then you have to replace the board or solder or re-hot it accordingly.

If you don't have hand on in it.Please take it to nearest service centre.

post a comment for further assistance.

thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I connect the charger of my htc hero. at first it was charging. after an hour i noticed that it stopped from charging. when i turned on my phone it didn,t open.

Open the back cover , take the battery out . Press and hold the power button without the battery . Put the battery back in . Try to power it on .
If that doesnt work try below steps , ( note : you will loose your data )
Power the device OFF. Press and hold the HOME and Back Arrow buttons. While holding these buttons, press the End Call button once. Release the Home and Back Arrow buttons and press the Trackball to execute the Hard Reset. The device will reboot once the process is complete.
Thumps for my solution if it works .

To turn the phone off, you need to first get past the screen lock and get to the phone. Then you need to hold down the red end call button. Hold it down long enough to get a popup menu. The top option is "Power off". Select this and it will ask for a confirmation to shut off the phone.

Good luck.

Flash player not working on my hero.

The Flash support for the Hero is still very limited. I think they advertise it as Flash Lite, so you will not get full Flash content loading properly on your phone.

The other issue you may be experiencing is that you have plug-ins disabled from your Browser settings. Flash is a plug-in that needs to be turned on. With your Browser up, go to Menu > More > Settings > Enable plugins.

Good luck.

HTC Hero will not turn on. Phone shut itself off

I have a Droid Eris by HTC, on start up it freezes at the first screen showing the three Android men. I have let the bat. run down, taken it out and it still stays the same. I followed the instructions on the Verison site showing you how to hard reboot, but still nothing. The only change was I came to a screen with a red triangle with a exclamation mark in it with a phone in the back ground. Please help.
