the power button on the idol 3 can be finicky as they are prone to failing. they ARE soldered to the circuit board so I would advise finding a local electronics repair shop or good friend with minimal soldering experience- seeing as the actual replacement is as simple a solder job as one could imagine . the component replacement, itself, is about $8.00 online.

I was having the same issue for almost a week now. My phone is visibly in great condition (screen in tack, no cracks or scratches, etc.), but the power button just gave out on me. The only time I was able to use it was if I plugged it into the battery.

Finally, i decided to download an app by searching "Power Button to Volume Button," and voilà it works. I now use my up or down volume to turn my phone on! I hope this helps you, too.
