    Default 2G - can't refit sleep/power button - wont spring back into place
    My iphone was dropped and the power/sleep button got jammed in.

    I have removed the flex cable and got a new button. I just can't seem to get the button to work properly.

    Any help? Which way round does the button go?

    I noticed that the metal ring behind the button rotates 90 degrees one way, and a little less the other way. Which way should it be?

    Is there supposed to be a spring behind the button or something, to help it return to it's normal position? This is doing my head in!!

    In addition, I have just tried to fit the button in both orientations, and screwed it into place.

    The button just wont sit in the hole properly, and it is no where near poking through properly, and it's on an angle.

    I've checked the the button the actual cable, and all seems to be ok.

    Should I try a new cable?



    Help!
