    Default Iphone 4s power button is not responding
    Hey guys,

    This is my first color swap so bare with me. So basically I went through the entire process of swapping out the LCD/digitizer of my phone and almost had a heart attack when the phone wouldn't turn on when I pressed the power button. It did turn on after I plugged it into the charger. The volume, home, and lock switch are working. All the other functions seem to be working as well. So I guess a couple questions here:

    1. I want to go through the phone again to see if I connected all the cables correctly. So will I mess up my phone if I pull out the battery without powering it down since the power button is not responsive?

    2. Any ideas why the power button would not be working?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Well if you have WinSCP you can run the command "halt" in it's Terminal to shut the iPhone down. But otherwise, yes. It won't harm it to take the battery out.

    2. It's most likely caused by a loose connector or wire that you have accidentally knocked loose while doing the color swap. It's not too uncommon for it to happen. Just make sure they're all tight and in the right place.

    Thanks H4CK3R, it did turn out that one of the connectors were loose when I opened her back up. I didn't have WinSCP but I did figure out a work around for turning off the phone.

    For whomever comes across this thread and needs an alternative work around for turning off the phone without WinSCP:
    Settings>General>Accessibility>AssistiveTouch "on">Device>Press&Hold "lockScreen">Switch Phone to Off

    Well glad it's fixed. Keep that in mind next time it happens (if it ever does).

    Good luck with your phone
