I have problems with my power button and this is very nice presentation, but I would like to know whether this button is an integral part of the back cover or can be purchased separately and, of course, where it can be purchased.

Thank you for answer and best regards,

Bojan

The power button must be part of an assembly that attaches to the main board in order for it to function. Where can I buy this assembly and not just the plastic button itself?
