View Full Version : Not working: sleep button, headset jack, silent switch, or volume buttons

Aug 8, 2010, 03:39 PM
Friends, my phone fell from a foot of distance; it hit a carpeted floor and since then the sleep button doesn't work. The headset jack doesn't work (I can't use headphones anymore). I can't set the phone to vibrate. And the volume buttons don't work either. Only the home button works.

Any ideas on how to fix this pickle??

What generation phone is it? If it's a 3G or 3gs, you're in luck. The headphone jack, wake/sleep button, silent switch and volume connections are all one piece. It's probably the same deal in the iPhone 4 but I haven't taken one apart yet. The fall couldve disconnected or broken the cable. I know ifixit used to sell that part; if not it's available from other sites or eBay.
