Where can I get a replacement Power Button?

I just bought a 2nd hand, 2nd generation iPod Touch. It works great except for the power button. Volume controls are fine. I want to buy a power button/volume control button. Where can I find one so I can work on replacing it.

Is this a good question?

stop, wait with buying anything.

i repaired many iPod touch and if the power button wasn't working - it was never a dead power button, most of the times it was a fluid damage.

so, open it and check the actual switch (not the piece that you can see outside).

the easiest way to check the button is to look at it, if it's damaged - you would see it

So, in your opinion, do I just need to clean the power button connection if there seems to be some liquid damage, or do I just have to live with it?

cleaning is the cheapest part, the next step would be to replace the part (it's pretty cheap on ebay)
