My KFHD Gen. 1 Power Switch is truly broken!

I am more familiar with technology than some other people, so I believe I know what is wrong. I pried off the back, tested, and found that rhe button sensor underneath the actual switch does not send the digital signal to the Kindle; even if the sensor is manually pressed with a fingernail, etc. I can hear the click but the device does not switch on/off.

I can confirm that the device itself works perfectly, due to the fact that I am typing this on my Kindle. I am only able to switch the device on by connecting its charger, however... And that is an enormous inconvenience.

It may be worth noting that I have it rooted and flashed with CyanogenMod 11, but this definitely is not the issue; I am sure it is a hardware problem. CyanogenMod has been running fine since last October.

So, is it possible to get a replacement switch assembly for my venerable tablet? Thanks in advance,

Thank you! The product you gave me was for the wrong generation, but I found on the store that there is a volume/power button board for the generation 1. You helped me direct me to the name of the product, so I thank you very much, Jake!!
