Here is a link that shows how to dis-assemble your tablet.

At 11:30 minutes into the video it shows the disconnection of the power/volume button flex cable from the mainboard. Continue on until 19:30 minutes into the video where it shows the power/volume buttons flex cable assembly being removed so as to enable replacement.


Here is a link to source a replacement power/volume button flex cable assembly. It is not a recommendation one way or the other to buy from them. It is just to show that the part is available


Hopefully this is of some help.

Thanks ,

I got lucky , ( no new parts needed)

Upon disassembly I found the 'power-volume' cable had become loose . (Accumulative drops)

All that was necessary was to re-plug it .
