Default Power button fell out. Help!

I was disassembling my phone to change my audio jack and while taking out the frame, the plastic power button completely popped out (my fault, I know what I did wrong). So I tried pressing the actual flex cable to turn on the phone and that didn't even work, so I'm assuming I need to buy a new flex cable. Also how do I put the physical power button back in the phone? I can't find a way to make it stick.

Someone help, I really am lost

That helps some, thanks!

But I also cant figure out how to put the power button itself back on onto the middle housing, or do I have to buy a new housing now?

i think you might need to remove the chrome frame and put the power button back the way it was or you can take a look at volume button on the other side seeing how it attached to the frame and also try to use super glue. btw does the power button work?

I never thought about comparing it to the volume side, good idea. And the power button doesn't work so I definitely need a new flex cable
