your iphone no more warranty?

the power button can be replaced, but does not solve your problem?

It's actually the power cable that is giving the problem. There's this black dot connector that has dislodge making the actual button sink down and giving an impression that the power button is stuck.

You'll have to change a new cable or do a slight mod to it(solution can be found in youtube), either way, you'll have to open the phone up and it's not an easy job if you are not technically sound.
