My lock button won't work. Help

And I'm out of warranty. Is there anything I can do?

Watch a YouTube video on how to fix it yourself or take it to a repairs shop.

Have a fiddle with the accessibility settings. I'm sure there's something in there which will let you lock the screen by tapping an option that appears rather than using the lock button.

Doesn't fix the problem, but it may be useful.

You could bring it to a repair shop.
