Evo 4g LTE no power
Hey, new guy here.
So about 2 weeks ago my EVO 4g LTE's power button started acting crazy. I would have to push it really really hard to make it turn on. Sadly it has gotten to where now it just doesn't turn the phone on at all. I have since downloaded an app from the market to use the volume keys to turn it on from sleep mode, but cannot turn it off without being able to turn it back on (the app only supports waking the phone up). I've taken it apart, cleaned it and still no luck. No matter how hard I press it, it just won't turn on. The button also no longer gives that slight "click" when pressing it.
I ordered a new button, took it apart, replaced the button and still nothing. It still doesn't even click. I'm wondering what the part underneath the power button is called. Would that be the power button flex cable. I'm speaking of the part the button actually touches to produce the power on/power off effect and the mild click it gives when pressed.
I bought the phone used and when I took it apart, it appeared to be tampered with at this same location. It looked like this section had a black coating on it where the power button would touch but had been rubbed/scrapped off, showing copper.
If anyone knows what this part is please let me know so I can order/replace it.
Thanks in advance
