Silver Power Button Missing Spacer? (iPhone 4s) - [SOLVED]

Addendum to the original post:

Here is a screen shot of the bottom of the lock button. I'm wondering if there is supposed to be a spacer placed in the center hole?

Working on an iPhone 4s. I followed the guide here on iFixit.

iPhone 4S Power Button Replacement

I unscrewed and removed the old power cable (step 26) and replaced it with a new one. Note, before installation I depressed and released the contact on the round power contact and it clicks.

However, after screwed back in, when I press and release the external/silver power button I can't hear click or feel it make contact with the round button on the flex cable.

I also tried it using a good flex cable out of another phone that I'm working on and no difference.

Maybe I'm missing something. I pulled out the silver power button, put it back in with the hinge down and simply screwed the power cable back on. Is there some way that I need to adjust the swinging hinge on the power button? Does the black connector with the two screw holes on the power cable need to be tilted in or something when putting it back in place?

[SOLVED]

I keep a roll of copper that has adhesive on one side. I cut off a little square and stuck it in the countersunk hole on the button. Once assembled I worked the button left and right slightly. I figured the adhesive would hold it in and since copper is really malleable it would mold itself when the button is pressed and released.

Works perfect. Just wanted to post in case someone else finds themselves in a similar situation.

How thick is the copper? Where did you get it?

Bend the hinge so that the button on the flex cable are higher than the screws on the sides, and remount it.

The hing is sitting flush. If I bend it out, wouldn't that cause more of a gap between the silver power button and the round button on the flex?

No bend the hing just a little bit

You could also try to remove this cap the orange one and replace it with a new one

Yeah, I worked with it till early a.m. and that cap came off. I have a new flex cable coming.

Oh, did you read my addendum at the top about the spacer?
