What exactly is broken in my power button?
Hello, my power button does not work and I am trying to find out what exactly is broken.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the power button is composed of the actual button, a plastic housing, and the headphone jack assembly. Since it is very obvious if the actual button broke, I'm going to assume either the housing or the assembly is broken.
I looked around for other people's problems to provide insight.
- In this case:(iPhone sleep/lock button doesn't work)
The person's button only worked when pressed hard and needed a replacement of the headphone assembly.
- In my case:
The power button has good tactile feedback when pressed, but the phone does not register the click.
I do plan on taking the 3GS apart soon, but I want a general idea of what to look for / purchase before I take it apart.
If anyone can help me a little, it would be much appreciated!
