If you hear sounds and feel vibrations when you try to turn the phone on, then your screen may be broken or detached from components in the phone. If you don't hear sounds or feel vibrations when you try to turn on the phone, your phone may be broken. Either way, you will need to get your phone checked out and fixed by a certified technician at your carrier's local store.

My phone isn't dialing or receiving calls?

An online resource says to make sure the phone is not in airplane mode. Check that by pushing the power button. I don't get it.

On most phones Airplane Mode makes sure your phone isn't using any internet, or WiFi, or signal in general, so you cannot make calls or do anything that would require a connection to either the internet or your carrier. This mode, at least for the most popular Samsung and iPhones, is found in the settings and it is just a button you can turn on or off.

Is there a work around for turning the S4 on without the power button?

I need to turn it on briefly to recover data from the phone. I removed the power switch from the board due to a power loop the pone was going through. Turns on and off repeatedly and wouldn't charge. I took ohm readings for the switch and compared to a known good phone and confirmed it was bad prior to removing. It will charge a battery now, but I don't know of a work around to get it to turn on.
