Silence switch issue related to wi-fi antenna

My silence switch stopped working (stuck on non-silent mode). I noted, however, that if I put a small amount of pressure on the top speaker it would suddenly work. Thinking, perhaps, one of the connectors was loose, I opened up and reseated everything. Here is the issue. The silence switch works perfectly until I seat the long screw in the top middle of the wi-fi antenna. As soon as I seat that screw, the silence switch stops working. Any thoughts?

I finally got it to work. I found the wi-fi antenna must be very carefully aligned and the screws tight, but not too tight. At least on my phone, if the antenna is not seated just so or the screws are too tight either the silence switch stops working or the shutter on the front facing camera sticks.

Try loosening the screw a little bit. I actually have the same issue on my old phone, so I will tell you if it works.
