    For some odd reason my power button is not working. The only way for me to look at things on a screen is to plug it into my charger. I took it to a local phone repair shop and they said it had something to do with the powerflex (something flex, not sure if its powerflex) connected to the motherboard?

    I might be searching for the wrong name because I cant find any online stores or ebay selling them. Theres Alibaba but I don't trust that site, it has bad reviews...

    any recommendations or similar experiences?

    It might be cheaper to get a new phone but I like this one since its rooted to the new Jellybean and I am afraid of losing all my music, shows and stuff. Im not sure if it is on the phone or on the SD card

    Welcome, bap.

    Did the tech clean the power button? :D

    Meanwhile, considering your options at this point, you might want to have a look here:

    The video Frisco linked you to is for the nexus s, the take apart is similar, but here is the one I followed to take apart my galaxy nexus:

    You can access the power button very easily :)

    If your android device power button stops working, out of nowhere, try the recovery below.

    Slide the battery in while the device is connected via usb/power cable.

    Here are some detailed steps to help you get it right:

    1. Disconnect the usb/power cord from the device.
    2. Remove back cover from the device.
    3. Remove battery, and leave the back cover off. You will place the battery back-in in a second.
    4. Reconnect the usb/power cord to the device and then to your PC.
