Unhappy [Q] Replacement power button circuit/cap? Help please.

Hi I bought a used AT&T HTC One X off craigslist and repaired the screen. During the installation somehow knocked off the connector that pushes down on the power button area, and the only way to turn it on is by touching something metal to it.. Is there anywhere u can get these tiny caps/circuits? (the small button that makes contact with the metal power button area) not the case button* I don't really want to have to replace the whole flex ribbon cable if not a must.. thanks so much in advanced! (I think from searching around the web these are called *Dome Switches*

Your best bet is to buy a really messed up HOX for cheap and take the whatever you need from it.

Best ROM evah'

They won't sell just the button cap but that's all he lost. They're used for volume rocker and power button.

They are all over ebay. Mine just popped off last night Seems like defect! I was able to use an exacto and a tiny piece of tape to place it and reinstall the unit in to the back and its working but I am afraid it will slip out one day and no good
