    • Ensure that the device is completely powered down before beginning to take it apart

    • Use a heat gun to melt the adhesive that holds the screen to the device

    • Make sure not to heat the screen for too long because too much can damage other components inside the tablet.

    • Use a suction cup to assist in lifting the screen while prying around its edges with a plastic spudger.

    • If necessary use a metal spudger to pry the screen up, taking care not to scratch the device.

    • Be careful not to pull the screen too far off. It will still be attached to the device by a cable for the front facing camera and the wide display data cable.

I have replaced the power/volume button flex with these instructions with a reportably working item, but power button still doesn't work. The volume buttons work just fine. Any other ideas about what might be the problem?
