Power button is not working - how to fix it?

Hi,

in iPhone 3GS, the power button is not response.

You press it but no action. The phone felt down to the floor many times.. My question is: What could be the way to fix it? what attached to this button? I know that there is a flex reibbon (Gold cable) that attached to the power button, earphones, volume buttons and it is not easy to fix. That's the only part that affected not working power button? That ribbon?

tnx

Yes, that ribbon. The Headphone Jack Ribbon Cable #5. A short term fix that sometimes works, is to squeeze in that corner the front screen and back case together (pinching) while pushing the button. When you repair the 3GS, make sure it is OFF before and during all repairs.
