Yes, the power button used to work fine, never had a problem with it.

Ok, got it. I did the batter trick and the menu lights and track led turned on and felt the vibration. My computer also recognized the phone and installed the drivers automatically. However the screen has been black all the time.

Good now setup adb/fastboot on PC if you haven't already, you need to get phone into bootloader and run some commands from PC
fastboot getvar all
Then you will know what screen to buy
