Power and eject button are unresponsive, but PS4 turns on and ejects discs when I use the controller

Hi! I have a day 1 PS4 that has worked great for many years, but a few months ago, the power button and eject button on the console itself has stopped working. I’ve been able to turn on the PlayStation by pressing the PS button on the controller, and eject discs through the controller as well. Is there any serious issue with my buttons not working and is there an easy fix? It has been bugging me for a while. Thank you for your help!
