    Ok I opened it up and cleaned the flex cable and cleaned the power button.. It worked

    But now I have another problem.. There is a veeery slight gap between the bezel and housing that does not let me close the phone without pressing the screen and back together to close that gap.. How do I fix this... ?

    Did you superglue it before placing it?

    most of the replacement cases will leave a gap. almost everybody sugest super glue, but make sure you are very careful not to spill ANY on the housing (on the outside visible area) as it will mess up the shiny look
