    I successfully fixed the digitizer on the wife's aria only to see that the power button no longer works. I disassembled the unit again to see that I accidentally tore the ribbon underneath the power button.

    Evidently, when I pried up the circuit board I went beyond the safe threshold. I guess I'm not cut out to be a surgeon.

    When I plug it in I get the battery graphic and the power button clicks, but nothing happens.

    Question 1: anyone have any suggestions for powering on? I've since got a new unit but I'd like to wipe this one before selling for parts.

    Question 2: anyone have any ideas for fixing it? I'm envisioning a solution involving a tiny tin-foil patch or something.

    Answer to Question 1: How to power on HRC Aria without power button?

    With the unit plugged in, simply remove and replace the battery to power on. Hooray!

    that helps with turning the phone on, but how would i unlock it after the backlight has timed out and the screen has locked?

    easy peasy... go to market and D/L "no Lock" with that enabled you can use either the volume buttons to unlock the screen or the optical camera button... works perfect
