Power button not working - camera, volume and screen lock work fine

I have replaced my digitizer for the second time due to clumsiness - i have been very careful not to damage antennas and power cord. After re assembly the unit wouldn't power on with power button. I plugged it into charger and powered on with home button. Volume, screen lock and camera work - the power cable looks intact. Could the cable be broken and the other stuff still work? I have ordered a replaement power cable but any suggestions in the mean time would be appreciated. Cheers

Seems like the little ribbon in the upper right that sticks in between the frame and digitizer might have gotten damaged. Hopefully that is all that is damaged and a pretty "simple" fix by replacing the lock/volume/silent/magnetic off ribbon. Make sure you look a the ribbon carefully and try to put the proper "bends" in it so it sits properly in the aluminum shell.
