Power Button Broken

History

My Power Button doesen't seem to do anything since yesterday. I restored today, thinking of a software problem, without a result. I then examined my iPhone noticing the power button is slighly pushed into the shell. I then succeeded locking my iphone by really pushing it hard with my fingernail. No satisfying solution for me.

Anyone else got this issue? Would accessing the power button from inside help?

I have the exact same issue! No resolve as of yet. it sure eats battery life noe that the screen stays on....

Scott,

Have you tried the hard reset - holding the sleep+home button together for 15 seconds or so until the Apple logo appears. This normally cures this type of problem which is going to occur from time to time. All computers crash from time to time.

Some useful and informative information here.

iPhone 3g and 3GS power button always got damaged where the upper right part of the systemboard touches one of the traces of the power button flex whit the time and movement thin signal trace got damaged and cut.

you can replace it for like $10 yourself or if youre low on money can solder the trace that its cut, just need some patience, low heat iron and a steady hand.

dudes !!

i've been trying to enter DFU mode for months now.

my Power Button is completely out !

today i opened up my iPhone 3g just to see what's inside and when i closed it up, i was touching it and i accidentally pressed the screen at the earpiece (the thing where you hear people talking to you) and it locked !

i thought 1 minute has passed but i tried again and it worked !

it worked when i tried to turn it off, it worked when i tried to turn it on AND it worked when i tried to enter DFU mode !

i just wanted to share, maybe it'll help someone out !

And also if the phone is off, just plug it in and it should start, try also with usb cable. Fot the power button fix, well just press hard on upper right side of the phone, where the power button is and that should do the trick.
