Replaced power button and mute switch. Still not responding.

I replaced the power button using the guide on this site. Still the power button will not lock the screen (completely unresponsive). The only other damage to the phone is the plastic back is cracked in places.

A separate issue is I replaced the mute/ringer rocker switch. When moved to mute, i have to hold the rocker switch down to keep in vibrate only mode. If I let it go, the phone switches vibrate on/off almost like the switch is right on the edge of the line that separates on from off.

Since I have replaced the power switch and mute rocker switch, I was wondering what the next step in replacement would be.

I think you need to reinstall the headphone Jack. Try putting vibrate switch in down position and then put sticky tape over outer case or blutak to hold in place while you line up the tiny plastic piece/switch on flex ( also put in down position) the switch sits in a very small groove on inside of vibrate/mute switch.

The power button may be overtightened which is why you have no response... Loosen the securing 2 screws until there is some " play" in button, make sure silver/metal ring on power switch is sitting in groove of back case.
