iPhone DIY repair: Ultimate guide to fixing stuck or broken power buttons

The iPhone has been plagued with power button issues since the debut of the iPhone 4. We've seen complaints from many readers that their iPhone power buttons are completely recessed and no longer register when pressed. In some cases, they'll still respond but you have to press extremely hard. In severe cases, the power button actually recesses into the casing. In our experience, power button issues are almost as prevalent as home button issues. As it turns out, the power button itself isn't the culprit at all, the flex cable that sits underneath it is. After so many presses, it just becomes worn down and too thin.

Fortunately, a DIY repair can breath new life into your malfunctioning power button. It'll cost you a lot less than a brand new iPhone and give you lots more life out of your existing one. Regardless which iPhone you have, we've got the guide for you including step by step instructions and links to parts and tools for the suppliers we trust.
