    Default Power, volume and silent buttons just stopped working. PLEASE HELP ME
    The power/sleep button on top and the volume adjust and vibrate switch don't work all of a sudden. Should I let the battery die and hope it fixes the issues or should I just keep it charged and assume they no longer work?! HELP please, I NEED this phone to work.

    try a restore. If that doesn't help you need the whole power jack cable.

    The most common reason for all those Headphone Jack Cable functions to fail is.... that Flex Cable #5 has come loose from the Logic Board. It is the connector immediately to the left of the SIM bay area. Carefully open your iPhone, be especially careful not to damage flex #3 or its connector. Then carefully reseat Flex Cable #5. Good luck.

    That's what I figured, damn... I replaced the screen about 8 months ago. If the phone dies before I can open it to fix it. Is there a way to turn the phone on? Or will the charger be my best friend for the next few days.

    Default Update:
    FIXED!!! Opened it up and disconnected all the flex cables to separate the screen from the back and then unplugged number 5 and 6 and then reconnected them. Then put it back together and everything works flawless again! WOOT!
