My power button on my D1 has been non-functional for quite some time, now. I read before where someone used some old, thin rubber from some headphones to replace the foam on the power button after disassembly. Can anyone send me pictures or anything of the sort showing how to do this? I really need to fix it, and I want to do it myself, but I don't want to turn my phone into a paperweight. I would love for a "how to" guide on this issue and some reassurance that everything I take off can be put right back on if not broken. I can't afford to buy pieces for this. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Sad thing is that I have googled it. Several times, actually. I've only found disassembly guides and videos. And I've also tried to remap the buttons but I couldn't really get it to work. :p

Button remapper on the market. Using it now, my power button is dead, the camera button is my new power button. Works great

Yep. I use the same thing. Just wish it would work from a powered off state.

Yeah, that's mainly why I need my power button, so I can come from a powered off state.
