Default [Q] Power button issue

A friend of mine has a 2013 Nexus 7 and claims they spilled water on it, and the power/lock and volume keys would not work. I opened it up and removed the volume/power flex cable from the zif socket, and tried letting the tablet sit in some rice, and the volumes keys will now work, but the power/lock button still does nothing.

My question is, if I get a new volume/power flex cable, do you think it will solve the issue, or is it more likely that the problem exists in the zif socket or circuit board?

Maybe it shorted, in that case new flex cable wouldn't help..
