power/lock hard to press

I have a iphone 4s, and I'm having a problem with my lock and power button.

It's not broken but it's lost its 'spring.' In order to press it I have to press kind of hard and works but not sure for how much longer.

I'm a bit confused if I need to buy just the button or if I need Power and Sensor Cable too.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The button is perfectly fine, the most likely cause for this issue is either loose power switch bracket or damaged switch on the cable. So either tighten the screws for the bracket or replace the cable

I replaced 2 cables today, all because the little black pusher detached from the switch. Without it the button cannot push the switch below
