Yeah you can fix that, I made the same mistake, accidentally ripping the volume button flex cable from the board. If you know how to solder SMD you're set, but you wouldn't be asking that question.

It's not too difficult to learn, get yourself some very very fine solder, and search youtube for video tutorials this one is good. All you have to do is solder the connections back.

I had to clean it off with rosin, carefully solder the terminals using a thin wire and then use super glue to hold it. However, only the volume down key is working. Still better than nothing as at least I can lower the volume then drag the slider up as needed.

Sometimes, your Android may suffer from accidental data erasing problem. Under that occasion, have you got any ideas to Recover Deleted Files on Android? For my part with this issue, I would like to use Android Data Recovery, a software which can Retrieve deleted contacts from android quickly and effectively. It is compatible with the majority of Android phones, such as Samsung, Motorola,Sony, Huawei, HTC, ZTE, etc. The recovery process is so simple that you can achieve what you want within minutes. what a fantastic app. It will be your regret that you do not make use of it to solve your problem.
